* In ''Literature/TheInvisibleLibrary'', Irene encounters one of those. He followed her trainee, deduced that they were after the same book thief he was investigating, and suggests that they should work together. Since she is a MagicLibrarian and they are in a parallel universe where mythical creatures are real, it is not quite clear whether he is supposed to be part of the "things working according to story logic" reality, or just sort of there because it ''is'' London.

* In ''Literature/JohannesCabal'' Cabal himself would almost qualify except most of his stories aren't traditional detective stories-the second novel ''Johannes Cabal The Detective'' shows an example of this-it even ends with Cabal giving a lengthy, pompous summation. If Cabal were so inclined, he'd make an excellent detective in the Sherlock Holmes vein, but Cabal is a scientist (and necromancer) first, detective second.
** In ''The Fall Of The House Of Cabal'' where things get a bit meta, Leonie Barrow, who proved an able sidekick to Cabal in his ''Detective'' novel, travels to a pocket universe where she is known as a Great Detective and Horst ends up being her comedy relief sidekick. While she serves well in the job (and is in real lief a forensic investigator) she laments that Cabal would have figured out the case sooner by dint of superior intellect-while Horst reminds her that Cabal's lack of social skills means he would have figured out means, but not motive.

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'' has Naoto Shirogane, the Detective Prince. Despite being looked down on by the police [[NotNowKiddo for being a teenager]] and [[SamusIsAGirl a girl]], she's clever enough that her investigation occasionally outpaces the [[TrueCompanions investigation team]]'s, despite having no clue about the supernatural forces involved in the kidnappings and serial murders. When she joins the investigation team proper, the plot quickly moves from saving the victims to figuring out the true culprit.
* The sequel, ''VideoGame/Persona5'', has [[HeroAntagonist Goro Akechi]], also titled the [[ContinuityNod Detective Prince]], who investigates the [[TrueCompanions Phantom Thieves of Heart]]. He has a major case of [[KnightTemplar Law]], but [[SixthRanger eventually joins the Phantom Thieves]] [[spoiler:only to betray them, revealing that he's actually a sociopath who mostly cares about boosting his own self-image]].

The first GreatDetective in fiction was Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's C. Auguste Dupin. Poe rejected the Vidocq model in favor of a more fantastic kind of detective. Later, the Dupin model was further codified by Creator/ArthurConanDoyle's Literature/SherlockHolmes, the most famous example to this day.
