Death Note Dog Names In Pop Culture
A real-world dog named after a Death Note character is Kira. While Death Note's Kira is more of a mantle shared by a number of individuals who have conformed to Light's worldview, Kira the dog is a sweet Siberian Husky who's known to be incredibly friendly towards others. Interestingly enough, Kira (the cute Husky not the megalomaniacal character from the Death Note series,) once ran for the position of student body president at UC Berkeley all the way back in 2016.
As the story goes, Kira was the prime candidate of the SQUELCH! party - a campus group who's become well known for their tendency to elect outrageous and unconventional candidates to represent them during campus elections. SQUELCH! has gone on record saying that their goal is to satirize the entire concept of campus elections, so it was a genuinely monumental moment for the party when Kira the Siberian Husky very nearly made it into office at UC Berkeley. Kira was about 3 years old when she ran for the position of ASUC President, making history as one of the youngest animals to nearly gain a position of office at UC Berkeley... or anywhere, really.
