* DoesNotWearShoes: Whenever she returns in her original body, she barely has enough luck to find any clothes, but she practically never finds shoes she could fit in, leaving her barefoot. The first time she shrunk, she lost her shoes and wandered around barefoot until Agasa found her.



* GoingCommando: It's never mentioned, but whenever Ai returns as Shiho, she usually has enough luck to find any clothes to not end up going around naked. The chance of her finding underwear is almost zero. One time she took the clothes from a female corpse, but it's unlikely that Shiho would take a corpse's underwear, given her character and given the time she needs to make effective use of her body to escape from danger.

* TheWatson: Shinichi has a tendency to call her "Watson" and she tends to play this role in flashbacks.



* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She has a fear of ghosts. Not because they're supernatural per se, though, but because they're intangible--meaning her martial arts will have absolutely no effect.

to:

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She has a fear of ghosts. Not because they're supernatural per se, though, but because they're intangible--meaning her martial arts will have absolutely no effect. A culprit assumes that she's afraid of anything remotely scarely, only for Ran to reply that she's afraid of ghosts, not of idiots and then beats the shit out of him.



* AdultFear: A couple of times, when Ran is in danger, who is always eager to rescue her out of fear. The earliest time he had his fear was when a group of three adults tried to kidnap 4-year-old Ran in kindergarden, and Kogoro had a very furious look on his face when he was about to arrest one of them (and that was just Kogoro's first week as an officer of the headquarters).



* AlcoholicParent: Frequently gets intoxicated and it's played for both drama ''and'' comedy. [[PlayedForDrama In the "Drama" part]] he does have a good perception in solving cases at times, but most of the time, he just wastes time drinking (to the point [[ChildrenRaiseYou Ran is the one who keeps the house in order]] and, in at least one case, he's seen [[DrowningMySorrows straight-up drinking his sorrows away]] because he can't handle [[spoiler: that a kind girl he used to know [[BrokenPedestal is the most likely culprit]].]] In the [[PlayedForLaughs "comedy" part]], he's seen dancing or sleeping drunkenly with his tie around his forehead and is more of a ButtMonkey than usual.

* DelinquentHair: Since his childhood, Kogoro's hair has been styled as a little pompadour. Nowadays, his moustache takes focus from his hair away, which makes his hairstyle less noticeable.



* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In the movies, Kogoro suffers from a mild acrophobia (fear of heights) and is quite uncomfortable in high settings where he has the chance to see how high up he is. He does not have this fear in the manga.

* CodeName: Hers was "Sherry", which indicates that she used to be a rather important member of the Black Organization.

* OlderThanSheLooks: Shrunk in the same manner as Shinichi, down to a 6-year-old's body. PlayedForLaughs when Conan first asks her real age. She flatly states 84, throwing Conan for a loop. [[spoiler: She only kept up the joke for one panel, but it was worth it to see Conan's surprise and bafflement.]]

** Ran's name is spelled with the character for orchid (蘭), a fact several of the endings have referenced.



* IronicName: The word ''ran'' in Japanese means [[IronicName "chaos/rebellion"]]. This is indirect contrast to the responsible, rule-abiding Ran Mouri.

* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: To Ran, and to Conan in a ParentalSubstitute way. He's a clumsy, womanizing father who's main vices include alcohol and gambling. She once chewed him out for taking Conan to a {{mahjong}} parlor behind her back.
