* LongRunners: The manga started 1994; anime started 1996.
* LooseCanon: ''Detective Conan'' has an ongoing {{spinoff}} manga series called ''Detective Conan Special Edition'' that is going on in a children's manga magazine. While it agrees with most canon elements of the main series, it's not drawn by the original mangaka (and hence has some OffModel issues) and TheSyndicate's appearances are non-canon. Its lack of firm link with the canon can be demonstrated because despite being a LongRunner itself (>30 volumes), its stories are very rarely adapted into {{anime}}.

* [[ItOnlyWorksOnce It Only Works Once Per Episode At Most]]: Conan's tranquilizer-needle wristwatch only has one shot, which means Conan has to save it until he really needs it. Sometimes Conan uses the watch early in the mystery (or, less frequently, misses his shot or the watch gets damaged) only to discover that the next time he needs to use it he's already shot his one bolt (and he must then work by the slower method of dropping hints or else find some other way to knock Kogoro out).

* [[NonSerialMovie Non Serial Movies]]: Conan has gotten one of these per year since a couple years after the show first started airing. Due to the relative scarcity of arc-based stories in the mostly-picaresque TV and manga series, the movies do not usually pose story-based continuity difficulties the way other series' non-serial-movies can. They do involve a number of considerably different elements to the main series, however, which sometimes makes it a little hard to reconcile the two.

* {{Ventriloquism}}: Conan uses a bow tie created by his professor friend to imitate people's voices when solving cases. For some reason, nobody ever seems to notice those voices are actually coming from behind the person's chair (or from a micro-speaker on his clothing or occasionally ''his forehead'').

* ShoutOut:
** One of the mysteries taking place at a mansion has NoCelebritiesWereHarmed versions of famous detectives.
** Jodie Starling is most likely named after Jodie Foster and the character she played in SilenceOfTheLambs, FBI agent Clarice Starling. She also sports glasses that appear to be directly from the movie.
** The biggest ShoutOut of all is Shinichi and his environs; judging by names one can safely say he has been living in London rather than Tokyo. ("Beika" Street, "Haido" Park, restaurants "Café Poirot" and "Columbo", etc...)
** Just about all of the characters have ThemeNaming from various famous detectives; some of the victims and suspects also have had names reminiscent of TheShinsengumi or JidaiGeki big names.
** Movie 6 has Ran actually copy a trick from Film/DieHard, hoping it works like in the movie.
** Hattori Heiji may well be related to UsefulNotes/HattoriHanzo, especially considering how good he is at Kendo.
** In volume 17, Kogoro exclaims 'Hellooo Nurses!' most likely referencing Vaudeville or Animaniacs.
** In ''The Twenty Year Old Murderous Intent: The Symphony Serial Murder Case'' (episode 174/volume 23), Ran could be seen emulating a famous scene in ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' and shouting "I'm the king of the world!".
*** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Kogoro and Conan, who were watching her and expressing concerns that her actions are TemptingFate and the cruise ship might end up sinking. [[spoiler: (it didn't sink; murders took place instead)]]
** The beginning of episode 608 has a commercial for a fictional chocolate-brand filmed in the style of Series/TwentyFour, complete with Picture-in-Picture, a digital clock and beeping sounds.
** An entire story in the 63rd tankoubon is a shout-out to InitialD. Why so? First, the case happened in Gunma in a place named Mt. ''Fuyu''na[[note]]Takumi's home course is named Mt. ''Aki''na; that place is based on a real-world place named Mt. ''Haru''na.[[/note]]. Second, the 'legend' is named Fuyuna's Silver Ghost[[note]]Bunta/Takumi in the [=AE86=] is known as Akina's White Ghost[[/note]].
** In episode two, the dub changes the kidnapped girl's name from Akiko Tani to [[Series/FullHouse Michelle Tanner.]]
** Akai Shuuichi and Okiya Subaru's names are references to Char Aznable from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', which Gosho Aoyama is a fan of. Masumi Sera and Tooru Amuro also have their names taken from there. [[spoiler:These names are hints towards Okiya's actual identity, and the fact that Sera is Akai's sister.]]

** Also nicely subverted in that Conan, who is stuck as a six year old, will go down quicker when knocked out compaired to the teenagers and adults... But the method of sedation is normally a cloth covered in narcotics or chlorophorm, instead of intramuscular injection.
** Averted by Gin who stays conscious long enough to shoot himself in the arm to keep awake -- and then climb down a chimney into a burning room to murder a fellow agent whose cover was blown and then climb back up said chimney using said shot arm.

** Of course it's not so much this as the bad reputation such a revelation would cause if it went public that scared him, because the hereditary culture would turn him into that character in the eyes of the people. And then at some point his panic caused his common sense run a red light or two and hit a streetlight, a little understandably. Basically, it could be about how concentrating on erasing the mistakes of one's ancestors can make you repeat them.

* JackTheRipoff: A man is murdered in a similar modus operandus as a serial killer whose original slayings neared the StatuteOfLimitations, but Conan deduces that [[spoiler: the victim ''was'' the murderer, killed by one of the victims' vengeful family members]] through the victim's DyingClue.

** While Kogoro may appear to be an egotistical jerk, he does have his moments where he shows that he does care about Ran and Conan, and also shows quite the moral restrains towards murderers and some co-workers.
** Shinichi himself, who can be realy high-and-mighty and pushy as well as snarky, but his heart is in the right place.
