* Ten-year-old [[CreepyKid Esmine]] plays this role in ''Literature/InTheSnowsOfHaz''. He's only one of several characters trying to solve the murders, though, and spends decent part of the plot locked in a room or running from bad guys. He does pretty well, all considered.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Sora takes on a detective role in Timeless River to figure out who has been attacking Disney Castle, using the windows as clues. It was obviously Pete, but [[spoiler:there are two versions of him here]]. In the Japanese version, the cutscene where Pete reappears to [[spoiler:steal the Cornerstone of Light]] is even called "Detective Sora".
** The second trip to Halloween Town also has a mystery as its theme; this time, on who stole the Christmas presents from Santa Claus. However, Sora doesn't play the detective role this time; Jack Skellington does.
