Description

Both Anakin and Light Yagami fall under the Fallen Hero archetype.

Between both characters, Pro is arguing that Anakin Skywalker is the more tragic character than Light Yagami. Con is arguing Light Yagami is the more tragic character.

Definitions:

Tragic Character- The protagonist of a tragic story or drama, in which, despite their virtuous and sympathetic traits and ambitions, they ultimately meet defeat, suffering, or even an untimely end.

Rules:
1. Pro (me) can only use examples and evidence from the Prequel Trilogy of Star Wars to support my case of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.

Con can only use the anime TV series ‘Death Note’ or its manga version. Other sources of Death Note cannot be used.

2. BOP is shared.

3. One forfeit is the loss of a conduct point. Two are an autoloss.

Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars and Light Yagami from the TV series Death Note.

Round 1
Pro
#1
Origin
Anakin was born into slavery and ended up being separated from his mother in order to live a life as a Jedi. 
Both Anakin and Light were privileged, but Light was born sheltered. 

Decision
Light chose to become a villain and was not manipulated by someone else in anyway. He didn’t need to become evil, but the temptation of power was all it took to drive himmad. 

For Anakin, it took his mother dying, mistreatment by the Jedi, and the fear of losing Padme that drove him to insanity. For Anakin, it was out of necessity. For Light, it was pleasure.

(I made my Round 1 Argument short because I had a feeling Con would forfeit.)

Extend.

#4
Light Yagami’s story is considered tragic because he was bestowed with the immense power of the Death Note, which ultimately ruined his life. If only the Death Note had fallen into someone else’s hands, Light would have spent the rest of his life pursuing something more meaningful and putting his high intellect to good use.
