!!'''Dr. Hiroshi Agasa / [[DubNameChange Hershel Agasa]]'''
[[quoteright:264:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agasa_5358.bmp]]
->''Voiced by KenichiOgata (JP)''

Shinichi's next door neighbor who makes a living developing odd inventions; some of which are put to use by Shinichi throughout the series. Shinichi appears to have the utmost trust in him, having no problem of revealing his identity to Agasa only moments after being shrunk by the APTX-4869 pill.

Later on, most of his appearances amount to playing the adult who looks after the Detective Boys, becoming the unintentional guardian of Ai Haibara (aka Shiyo Miyano) when said character shows up at Shinichi's doorstep, and providing insight for Shinichi to help combat the Black Organization.

During most cases that involve the Detective Boys, Shinichi will force Agasa into the spotlight to explain the case at hand.

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory Naming Note]]: "Agasa" is the {{Engrish}} pronunciation of ''Agatha'' Christie.[[labelnote:Phonological Note]]JapaneseLanguage lack the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiceless_dental_fricative Voiceless Dental Frictive consonant]], i.e. the "th" sound. They pronounce the "th" as "s."[[/labelnote]]

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Most Triumphant Japanese Example
* BigFancyHouse: The mansion located next to the just-as-big Kudo home.
* BigFun: A chubby old man with a heart of gold and a cheerful disposition
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* EinsteinHair
* FriendToAllChildren
* GadgeteerGenius: He made Conan all those [[strike:assistive technology]] gadgets.
* HerrDoktor: Drives a German car, a Kfer. In the dub, he has a German accent.
* NiceGuy
* NoNameGiven: Averted, but not with a bit of AssPull. His given name, given as Hiroshi only later on, is an AlternateCharacterReading of ''Hakase'', the Japanese term for the title of Doctor, while devoid of the latter's connotations.
* ParentalSubstitute: For Shinichi, to a degree. Even moreso for Haibara, who lives in his house and unlike Shinichi, no longer has any real family. She grows to love him like a real father and often tries to protect him above anyone else. He's even her cellphone background picture! [[spoiler: It turns out he knew her dead parents.]]
* SecretKeeper: With the distinction of being the first person ''ever'' who found out about Shinichi.
* SmartBall: Pocketed it. Shinichi said he never invented anything useful right in the beginning, yet he eventually became one of the most GadgeteerGenius in anime [[AssPull without any further explanation]]. That being said, several of his inventions still do malfunction from time to time, but those are few and far between.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler:With Fusae Campbell Kinoshita.]]

!!'''The Detective Boys/The Junior Detective League'''
[[quoteright:259:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/db_8665.bmp]]
[[caption-width-right:259: Clockwise from TheBigGuy; Genta, Mitsuhiko, Ayumi, Conan and Haibara]]

Consisting of Conan, Haibara, Mitsuhiko, Genta, and Ayumi, they are a FiveManBand of kid detectives.

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory Naming Note]]: Their group name comes from the group of the same name in Edogawa Ranpo's novels.

* FiveManBand
** TheLeader: Conan (Conan leads the investigations, but Genta insists on the credit.)
** TheLancer: Haibara, like Conan, is a genius adult shrunk to child form but her coldness contrasts his heroics
** TheSmartGuy: Mitsuhiko ''thinks'' he's the smartest because he's LockedOutOfTheLoop. He provides information Conan lacks.
** TheBigGuy: Genta, the tallest and strongest (and chubbiest) of them.
** TheChick: Ayumi is a cheerful girl who's friends with everyone; even FirstNameBasis with Haibara.
* FreeRangeChildren: The kids spend a lot of time wandering around without even nominal adult supervision. They regularly do things like take bus trips, canvas neighborhoods, and explore caves, forests and scary mansions alone. True, Conan and Ai are OlderThanTheyLook, but almost any adult who isn't [[SecretKeeper Professor Agasa]] doesn't know that since Conan and Ai look about seven.
* LimitedSocialCircle: They are rarely seen spending much time with classmates outside their group but Ayumi at least is shown with a list of her other friends. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] with Ai and Conan, who simply don't have any reason to make more friends at elementary school.
* LoveDodecahedron: Genta likes Ayumi, Mitsuhiko likes Ayumi and Ai, Ayumi likes Conan, Ai is believed to like Conan and Conan is Ran-sexual.
* ObliviousToLove: Among the group, Ayumi is blissfully unaware that Mitsuko and Genta both have a huge crush on her. Conan knows Ayumi likes him, but dismisses his mother's suggestion that Ai also has a crush on him as absurd.
* {{Snooping Little Kid}}s: The group together is mostly seen as this to grown-ups; particularly, the police department and Kogoro.
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp They Are All Grownup]]: OVA 9.
* {{Tag Along Kid}}s: Conan is pretty much followed by the three actual kids of the group, Mitsuhiko, Genta and Ayumi. Ai on rare occasions takes Conan's place here sometimes. Otherwise, she stands along side Conan.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ayumi Yoshida]]
!!'''Ayumi Yoshida/ [[DubNameChange Amy Yeager]]'''
->''Voiced by YukikoIwai (JP) / MonicaRial (EN)''

The one and only emotional girl of the Detective Boys before Ai Haibara joined the group later in the series.

* TheCutie
* FirstNameBasis: Ayumi is the only child of the group who calls Haibara by her first name.
* HairDecorations: Always seen with a headband.
* HopelessSuitor: For Conan, due to the latter age problem. Though to her defense, it's more like admiration than crush.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She was the only girl of the group before Haibara joined.
* ThirdPersonPerson: In later chapters, Ayumi constantly refers to herself as such.
* TokenMiniMoe: Pretty self explanatory seeing how all other major or secondary female characters in the series is either a teenager or an adult not counting the shrunk Haibara.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Genta Kojima]]
!!'''Genta Kojima/ [[DubNameChange George Kaminski]]'''
->''Voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi (JP)''

The big kid of the group who enjoys to eat, but isn't the brightest of the bunch.

* BigEater: Eats a lot for his age. Although he ''is'' fat.
* BigOlEyebrows
* DumbMuscle: Seen to be the least intellectual of the group, but at least makes up for it for being the biggest of the Detective Boys.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: During the ''Tragedy of the Pier in Plain Sight'' case (episodes 366-367/volume 45), his uncharacteristic action of fully concentrating on fishing (to the point of almost skipping lunch) turns out to be a secret plan to catch a rare fish for Professor Agasa's birthday.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Mitsuhiko's Sensitive Guy.
* TalkingtoHimself: On rare occasions if Takagi and Genta are in the same episode. Both share the same voice-actor in Japanese.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Unajuu, or eel on rice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya]]
!!'''Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya/ [[DubNameChange Mitch Tennison]]'''
->''Voiced by Creator/IkueOtani / Creator/AiOrikasa (JP)''

The lead boy before Conan joins the group who genuinely tries to provide Conan with legitimate feedback on cases that the group comes across; most of the time to no avail.

* AuthorAvatar: Gosho Aoyama has stated in an early interview that [[TheSmartGuy Mitsuhiko]] is modeled after his childhood self.
* CynthiaCranz: The ADR voice actor for Mitsuhiko ([[DubNameChange or Mitch, for that matter]]).
* LovableNerd: Seen to be smartest of the children outside Conan and Haibara.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Genta's Manly Man.
* WiseBeyondHisYears: Can be argued that Mitsuhiko acts quite sharp and clever for his age.
* YouthfulFreckles

[[folder:Sonoko Suzuki]]
!!'''Sonoko Suzuki/ [[DubNameChange Serena Sebastian]]'''
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sonoko-ladies-of-detective-conan-17766206-225-350_6277.jpg]]
->''Voiced by Creator/NaokoMatsui (JP) / Creator/LauraBailey (EN)''

The love-seeking daughter of a very rich family, and Ran's best friend. On rare occasions, mostly from cases that involves just her and Ran, Shinichi will put Sonoko to sleep and talk as her in a manner similar to how he uses Kogoro as the scrape-goat for explaining the case at hand.

She eventually gains an actual boyfriend in the form of an international karate champion, Makoto Kyougoku, but still finds time to flirt with other men (Kaitou Kid in particular) to compensate for the fact that she can't handle being in a long-distance relationship.

* AlliterativeName
* AloneWithThePsycho: At least twice.
* BerserkButton: Say all you want about this girl, but she strongly believes in ThePowerOfFriendship and adores her buddies -- specially Ran. So please don't harm your own friends! And even more so, [[spoiler: '''don't kill them'''.]] She will get REALLY mad if you do.
* BrainlessBeauty: Borderline case.
* BullyHunter: As a child, Sonoko used to defend Ran from bullies.
* ButtMonkey: She really has extraordinarily bad luck at times.
* ChildhoodFriends: With both Ran and Shinichi.
* DamselInDistress: Catches the DistressBall more than once.
* TheFashionista: Especially seen in one case where Sonoko identifies the victims as belonging to the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganguro ganguro]]'' fashion sub culture upon seeing their pictures. She even distinguished ''what'' kind of ganguro they were!
* ForeheadOfDoom
* HairDecorations: Usually seen with a headband.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Ran Mouri's closest friend since childhood.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: With all of her shallowness and childish fits, she really cares for Ran and her friends.
* LongDistanceRelationship: With Makoto, a famous karate champion.
* OfficialCouple: With Makoto Kyougoku.
* PluckyGirl
* RunningGag: Her bad luck with men, until she started dating Makoto.
** Goes into NotFunnyAnymore in 153-154, where she goes boy-hunting in Izu (with Ran and Conan in tow)...and the attractive boy who showers her with compliments turns out to be the {{AxCrazy}} [[MonsterOfTheWeek killer of the week]], driven by a hatred for blonde girls. [[RescueRomance She is rescued by Makoto, which marks the start of their relationship.]]
* SheIsAllGrownUp: In the ''Stranger of 10 Years Ago'' OAV, she's not only OlderAndWiser but is almost as much of a Type 1 {{Ojou}} as Ayako.
* ShipperOnDeck: For a long time she's a Shinichi/Ran ''anti''-shipper since [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim she believes he's not good enough for her]] and she can't stand seeing Ran suffering because of Shinichi - for all Sonoko knows he's enjoying himself while her best friend is having a bloody miserable time. She later mellows out on this.
* SpoiledBrat: Milder than other cases
** SpoiledSweet: She's too flighty and childish to be TheOjou but doesn't flaunt her wealth around in an overly bitchy manner. In fact, she appreciates that Ran doesn't try to mooch off her.
* SweetTooth
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: One may ''think'' she's Ran's girly girl and her older sister Ayako's tomboy but Ran thing is [[PlayingWithATrope more complex than that.]] Sonoko is less physically active and more boy-crazy/fashionista than Ran, but is also more outspoken and straightforward than her (Unless Ran's in tsuntsun more, yeah.) In fact, their friendship started when ''Sonoko'' protected Ran when they were children!
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: A more vocal example than most. Sonoko completely proclaims to Inspector Yamamura that Makoto isn't the murderer in a case, and continues to give him death glares when the idiot makes veiled comments that he belives Makoto to be the culprit.

[[folder:Yuusaku Kudo]]
!!'''Yuusaku Kudo / [[DubNameChange Booker Kudo]]'''
[[quoteright:257:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dad_1970.bmp]]
->''Voiced by Creator/HideyukiTanaka (JP)''

Famous mystery writer and Shinichi's father.

He currently lives with his wife Yukiko in Los Angeles, but he and Yukiko drop by regularly to check on Shinichi.

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory naming note]]: Yusaku's name comes from Shunsaku Kudo (protagonist of the TV Drama Tantei Monogatari aka Detective Tales) and actor Yusaku Matsuda (who portrayed Shunsaku Kudo).

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Among the few who can outsmart Shinichi/Conan on a regular basis.
* BadassBookworm
* BadassMustache
* BrilliantButLazy: He is supposed to be an even better detective than his son and has even outsmarted him a couple of times, he'd just rather work as a writer instead. His relationship with Shinichi is a very clear ShoutOut to Literature/SherlockHolmes and his older brother Mycroft.
* FamedInStory
* GuileHero: He's good at catching criminals because writing complicated and engaging novels from a villain's POV gives him insight on details and human psyche.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can be pretty insensitive and an InsufferableGenius sometimes. Oh well, LikeFatherLikeSon.
* MysteryWriterDetective
* SecretKeeper
* SingleTargetSexuality: Even with his mild flirting to other women, Yuusaku has only had eyes for Yukiko.
** There's also how he modeled "Irene Adler" after Yukiko in the third movie; in the mystery game Yusuaku was SherlockHolmes and Irene Adler was Holmes's one and true love.
* SlapSlapKiss: With Yukiko, at their worst.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses
* StrongFamilyResemblance: [[http://www.detectiveconanworld.com/wiki/File:Young_Yusaku.jpg Here is Yusaku in his 20's, sans-moustache and glasses.]] The similarities between Dad and Shinichi went off the freaking ''ceiling'' with that.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TeenGenius: Yeah, LikeFatherLikeSon in ''this'' too.

Shinichi's mother, an old friend and rival of Ran's mother Eri, as well as a former teen model and actress; [[spoiler:past jobs that have even brought upon her a connection to the Black Organization's member, Vermouth]].

She currently lives with Yusaku in Los Angeles, but they drop by regularly to check on Shinichi.

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory naming note]]: The name Yukiko Fujimine (藤峰) name is a ShoutOut to Franchise/LupinIII's Fujiko Mine and Fujiko's first seiyuu, Yukiko Nikaido. An alias she used twice, Fumiyo (文代), comes from Fumiyo Akechi, wife of Edogawa Rampo's Kogoro Akechi.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Just as hot as Eri (who turns out to be her old sempai and friendly rival). JustifiedTrope, she and Yusaku were in their very early 20's when they got married.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She's quite..... unique and hyperactive, to say the least.
* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' alude to her age!
** And if you're Yusaku, do ''not'' flirt with women in front of her!
* BikerBabe: Catsuit included.

* MasterOfDisguise: She has NOT lost her acting skills after retirement.
** [[spoiler:Implied to have learned from the same master as Vermouth and to have studied with her.]]
** [[spoiler: Even more so, she helped Shuuichi Akai to become this and then build his Subaru Okiya identity.]]
* MsFanservice
* OjouRinglets
* RapunzelHair: Reaches past her waist.
* RedBaron: Became known as the "Night Baroness" because of her husband's work.
* SecretKeeper: One of few people who knows Conan is Shinichi.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Shinichi and Ran. She even refers Ran as her future daughter-in-law! Needless to say, this caused Ran to blush.
* {{Tsundere}}: Specially seen in a certain two-parter where it turns out she came to Japan alone after a fight with Yusaku. Once they get involved in a case which Yusaku resolves, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny cue to her hilariously refusing to come back to the USA with him.]]
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: At one point, stuffed her son between her breasts to take him along for a bike ride.
* WomanChild: Often acts very, very childishly
** LetsGetDangerous: Unless she needs to be serious

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Eri_Kisaki_484.png]]
-> ''Voiced by GaraTakashima (JP)''

Ran's mother and the estranged wife of Kogoro. She's a very successful attorney.

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory Naming Note]]: The name comes from ElleryQueen; Kisaki means "Queen."

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Her beauty is commented on by a number of characters. In her second appearance, she was introduced via having the MaleGaze fixed on her butt.
* ActionMom: Doesn't fight actively, but can defend herself when needed. Implied to have learned it from Kogoro.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Frequently with Kogoro. Pretty much whenever they meet, they spend the entire time nagging each other, but these episodes usually end with a clear indicator that they still care for each other.
* BelligerentSexualTension: She and Kogoro are an ''adult'' version of the trope.
* BrainyBrunette: She has light brown hair and one of smartest adult in the series.
* CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem: With Kogoro. At one point, Kogoro even outright states that he cannot bear being seperated from Eri and asks her to come back, but she pretends she didn't hear him because she's not ready yet.
** She ALMOST came back for Kogoro in '''The Day That Mouri Kogoro Ceased Being Detective'''. Thanks to [[AbhorrentAdmirer Sayuri Tokomae]] however...
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Kogoro.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Yukiko. Also, with Kogoro, which developed [[ChildhoodFriendRomance into something more]].
* DudeMagnet: [[ItRunsInTheFamily Guess where Ran gets her looks from?.]]
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Her outfit is almost always a purple lawyer suit.
* HelloAttorney
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Yukiko Kudo.
* LethalChef: The real (and pathetic) reason why she separated with Kogoro; the guy is just too honest to tell her that her cooking sucks without giving a damn for what she feels.
* {{Meganekko}}: Though harsher than the standard.
* MsFanservice
* PrimAndProperBun
* RedBaron: Known as "The Queen of Courtroom".
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: See her TeenGenius section and the fact that she has never lost a case in her entire career.
* TeenGenius: She was one of the national top scorers when she was in high school, and actually turned down a Harvard offer ''because'' of Kogoro.
* {{Tsundere}}: She vehemently claims to hate the drunkard, gambling and womanizing Kogoro but she still wears her wedding ring and keeps on listening to his recorded voice on the Walkman asking her to come home and start over. She even named her pet cat "Goro" after him. In fact, she is always ready to come back to him once he quits his vices and starts to act like a responsible husband... but this IS Kogoro we're talking about.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Woman And Her Cat]]: Eri owns a pet cat named "Goro".
