Default who did you think the bad guy was?

It's debatable for sure.
Do you blame think Light was a bad guy killing all those people? don't forget he also killed that girl who wasn't a criminal. She just knew to much.

or perhaps you agree with his general philosophy and think L should have died for the greater good?

or something else entirely? perhaps you think Ryuk is the bad guy for dropping the death note?

I think Ryuk is the REAL bad guy. He dropped the note and caused all this agony BECAUSE HE WAS BORED! People died over his boredom. That seems pretty evil to me. Also, he pretended to be Light's friend, I know he said that he was on neither side but he still implied himself to be on Light's side than at the end there was a SMALL chance that Light COULD have survived but Ryuk didn't want to bother wait so he wrote Light's name down there and then.

Ryuk may have been bored, but Light still chose to do it. Much as I was on Light's side while watching the anime, my political sensibilities lean in L's direction in real life, Light was the bad guy, yet still the protagonist.

Towards the end Light was the villain. He was corrupted by power.

There wasn't intended to be a 'bad guy' according to the creators, as Light and L were both intended to be amoral.

Intended or not, they obviously weren't.

Amoral is a lack of caring whether your actions are right or wrong or having no moral standards. Both L and Light feel very strongly about what they are doing...

If Light was amoral he wouldn't have put any consideration into who he was killing, he deliberately set out to create what he felt would be a better world, while L set out to put a stop to what he felt would be a worse world. Yes, boredom and ego and in L's case the desire to solve a puzzle all played their part, and towards the end they played the biggest part for Light, but both still had a moral drive.
