Uei Uragami (浦上衛, Uragami Uei, reading unverified) is a supporting character exclusive to the Death Note film series. He is a member of the new Task Force ten years after the original Kira case.


Uragami is a Japanese man with short brown hair and brown eyes. He appears to be in his thirties.[2] He wears a suit to work.


Very little is known about Uragami, which is intentionally how the new Task Force is set up to protect its members. Like the rest of the Task Force, he has no living family.


In the first episode of Death Note: New Generation, Uragami is a member of the Task Force when Tsukuru Mishima joins. Uragami's partner is Shin Kuromoto. The two of them are in the room with Rokuro Natsugawa when he begins to recite Kira's message under control of a Death Note. When Natsugawa tries to bite off his own tongue, Kuromoto and Uragami stop him, but he still dies of a heart attack. When the Kira deaths resume, Uragami decides to stay on with the Task Force despite the risk.

Uragami appears again briefly in Death Note: Genius of the Counterattack.

He returns in the film Death Note: Light Up the NEW World and its novelization. He assists with tracking down Sakura Aoi, and later he touches her Death Note to see Bepo with the other Task Force members. Kuromoto and Uragami later monitor Misa Amane, but find nothing suspicious.

Uragami is with the team that tracks down Yuki Shien's location, and he witnesses Touta Matsuda's death.

After Sugawara disbands the Task Force, Uragami joins with Kuromoto, Sho Nanase, and Mishima to help Ryuzaki attempt to get the four Death Notes from Shien. When Ryuzaki appears to die of a heart attack, Kuromoto and Uragami go after Misa Amane. While escaping, Yuki Shien pulls Kuromoto and Uragami's masks off so Misa can see their faces. Uragami and Kuromoto both die of heart attacks, killed by Misa with Death Note paper.
