Tasayoshi Yoda (世田多三吉, Yoda Tasayoshi) is a criminal killed by Light Yagami as a part of an experiment to test the Death Note.


Yoda has a short crop of dark-colored hair and wears a suit.


Light Yagami writes Yoda's name into the Death Note to test its effects. Light writes that Yoda will make it to a nearby restroom and collapse from cardiac arrest caused by the Death Note.

On December 19, Yoda walks into the prison's restroom and dies.
