* Madame Vastra in ''Series/DoctorWho'', who is the InUniverse inspiration for Literature/SherlockHolmes. The Doctor himself has been called "the great detective" on a few occasions, and though he rarely encounters traditional mysteries (or rather, the mysteries that he faces take the form of figuring out how to stop the villain rather than who it is), he is more than equal to the task, his SherlockScan second to none.

** Lt. Col. Maes Hughes as well, as he [[spoiler:deduces that both the layout of Amestris and the locations of recent large-scale military conflicts form the same kind of transmutation circle needed to create a Philospher's Stone, a process that requires the sacrifice of human lives. Particularly notable in that Hughes himself isn't an alchemist, yet he picked up on these facts long before any other character. Unfortunately, he gets killed by one of the conspirators before he can share this information.]]

* Oh and then there's also [[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Tim Drake]], who Batman has said will one day surpass him, in addition to being one of two people Ra's al Ghul calls "Detective." So some nice recommendations for the position.

* ''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]]. Despite his initial and public denunciations of the Phantom Thieves' [[HeelFaceBrainwashing methods]], he [[SixthRanger eventually joins the Phantom Thieves]] [[spoiler:only to betray them, revealing that he's actually in league with the Conspiracy, as well as the illegitimate son of the ringleader, and by making people's shadows go berserk, apparently caused all the crimes he investigated. His ultimate goal is to help his father's plan succeed, only to betray him at the last minute, but feelings of attachment to the party and a desire for his father's recognition complicate this.]]

The first GreatDetective in fiction was Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's Literature/CAugusteDupin. 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.
