Scenario 1. L
Scenario 2. L
Scenario 3. L

L was often compared to as being better than Sherlock Holmes in popular stories such as the BB murder cases, well when I say often I really mean like twice but still L has solved far more cases, intact he's solved more harder cases then Sherlock has solved cases.

Near, mello and light I would also deem as being better than Sherlock.

Sherlock had many cases involving the supernatural, as far as I'm aware. I'm quite sure he's taken down satanic cults and the likes of witches and other things.

The Kira Case is the only case L had ever been involved in where he knew he was dealing with something out of the known world. However, you are very much correct. I also think that L would nine times out of ten beat Sherlock.

Scenario 1:Sherlock Holmes.

Scenario 2:L.Because of the circumstance involving the death note,Holmes would not last long.He annouces his name and even his address to all.221b Baker street.Only reason L lasted so long is because he kept himself annoymous.Something Holmes will never do.

Scenario 3:Holmes.Holmes survived all his cases.L did not.

Near had L's original information to go off of. He didn't have to do much to figure out the rest. Plus, Light got cocky. It was plot induced stupidity. That's irrelevant though.

Good information so far.

I just don't think survival is relevant...

there are plenty of terrible detectives in fiction and non-fiction that haven't died. I don't think any of them hold a candle to L.

True. However, Sherlock at least does.

No,i am saying Sherlock is the better detective.Near just continued L work.L had to die and Near and mello was L's contingency plan.PIS or not,its not something a good detective would do.L could have done many other things that could have exposed Light.
For starters,L could have done something like Sherlock Holmes did,Holmes faked his own death and went undercover for 3 whole years.
L was not a good detective because he used his grunts to do the leg work.Sherlock did his own leg work.
Think about this,at the start of the series,if L just went to Light Yagami room instead of sending the locals to check the room out,L would have discovered the secret mechanism where Light hid the death note.Case closed,most doubts assuaged.Sherlock does his own leg work.He would have discovered the death note in there.

Survival and legwork is vital in investigative work.I am a police officer.You cannot solve a case if you are six feet under.Bottom line.L lost to Light.As simple as that.He cannot be called a good detective if his protege's had to finish what he started.To be honest,i think they have the similiar level deductive skills.However Sherlock gets his own hands dirty.Thats why he is better.L deduced that the killer was a college student because murders did not happen during school hours.Holmes deduced moriarty was a murderer just by the way he played chess.Explain to me how he deduced that and maybe i will consider L to be even close to Holmes.
