[[caption-width-right:176:[[labelnote:(SPOILER AHEAD) Click here to see his appearance as [[spoiler:Subaru Okiya]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/92f762a4fd5b65079a585aa6a225e4a7.jpg]][[/labelnote]]]]

->''Voiced by Creator/ShuichiIkeda (JP), and Creator/RyotaroOkiayu (JP) as [[spoiler:Subaru]]''

An FBI agent [[spoiler:who had previously been a part of the Black Organization as codename, Rye, before his cover was revealed.]] He chases after the Black Organization in the present time.

[[spoiler:He was supposedly killed at the end of the Kir arc to implant Hidemi Hondou back as a spy in the Black Organization. At the moment he is hiding under the persona of Subaru Okiya.]]

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory Naming Note]]: "Aka" in "Akai" comes from Char Aznable of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', who drives a red mecha. "Shuichi" is part of [[TheDanza his voice actor's name]].
----
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His deductive prowess is on par with the titular hero's.
* BadassDriver: Akai is a skilled driver. He can overtake many cars quickly in heavy traffic conditions and drift around a u-turn.
* BadassTeacher: ''He'' was the one [[spoiler:[[ActionGirl proficient Jeet-Kune Do Sera]] on how to do the said martial art.]]
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler: He at first dated Akemi solely to infiltrate the Syndicate better. He ended up falling in love with her for real.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:As Subaru, while he looks and acts like a friendly Literature/SherlockHolmes-loving grad student and a BigBrotherMentor living in Conan/Shinichi's house, yet he also sometimes gives Ai the chills, which only happens around Black Organization members and Shuuichi Akai]].
-->'''Conan''', explaining why [[spoiler:he let the fox-faced Subaru stay at his house: "A person who loves Sherlock Holmes couldn't possibly be evil!"]]
** [[spoiler: He also seems to have figured out that Conan is Shinichi thanks to eavesdropping.]]
* BigBrotherMentor: [[spoiler: Played with. As Akai, he promised his girlfriend Akemi that he'd help her sister Ai. He's sorta fulfilling it, but under a fake identity.]]
* BigFancyHouse: Subverted. [[spoiler:As Subaru, he's only the caretaker of the Kudo mansion]].
* ButNotTooForeign: It's been recently revealed that Akai's mother is British and he was originally also raised in Britain, but he later went to school in the United States and obtained dual citizenship before joining the FBI.
* CatchPhrase: Akai has a few expressions that he uses with enough regularity that others are able to make a connection between him and [[spoiler:Subaru Okiya]] based on his use. For instance, "Don't make that kind of face" is what prompts Haibara to connect him to Dai Moroboshi, the name he used when she knew him. "Fifty-Fifty" allows Jodie to, in hindsight, connect the dots and realize [[spoiler:Akai faked his death]].
* CharClone: Physically not so much, but Akai's name and former alias, Dai Moroboshi are both references to Char Aznable and they even wound up sharing the same voice actor. He also is always seen wearing a hat. Gosho Aoyama even confirmed the inspiration by once doodling half the face of Char and drawing Akai as the other half. [[spoiler:Then as Subaru Okiya, Akai becomes a straightforward example. He's blonde in the manga (although the anime made it more strawberry blonde), he drives a red car (white in some instances) with suicide doors, he wears glasses and squints most of the time and his LongLostRelative is Masumi Sera]].
* ColdSniper: He's a rather aloof and intimidating guy even without a sniper rifle in his hand, but...
* DarkIsNotEvil: He looks quite sinister, especially a few years back when its shown that his black hair was once as long as Gin's, but he's definitely a good guy.
* {{Determinator}}: He is a skilled and relentless pursuer and detective, qualities which have labeled him the number one enemy of the Black Organization and earned him the nickname "Silver Bullet".
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: When he infiltrated the B.O., his hair was long enough to trail well down his back. In the present time, his hair is cut.
* EyesAlwaysShut: [[spoiler:When disguised as Subaru. If he opens his eyes, it's clear that he's Shuichi Akai. Now in chapters 898, when disguised as Subaru, he sometimes opens his eyes while talking to Andre Camel and Jodie Starling]].
* FaceOfAThug: Conan (and others) describe him as an evil-eyed man. He's a bit intimidating, but he's not that bad.
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:Currently living as Subaru Okiya.]]
* {{Fanboy}}: Of Literature/SherlockHolmes.
* FatalFlaw: Shuichi has an unhealthy tendency to prioritize his missions above the emotional wellbeing of his friends, coworkers, family, and love interests. Conflict between his missions and the interests of those he cares about has lead to significant sorrow for him and others.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:In the case where Okiya is introduced, the suspects were color-coded by a child. Okiya was the ''red'' guy. (Akai=red in Japanese).]]
* FriendlySniper: Overall he's a pretty decent guy and actually gets along well with Conan.
* GeniusBruiser: High deductive and reasoning skills plus is an expert hand-to-hand combatant in Jeet Kune Do.
* HiddenDepths: Apparently, he can play the accordion.
* IWorkAlone: Shuichi prefers to plan secretly, and will readily trick his friends and coworkers, even injuring them, if helps the success of his missions. Shuichi is often forgiven for these transgressions because his judgment is usually sound and his plans work out well. Shuichi's secret plans, while strategically robust in the short term, often cause emotional problems for others that he does not fully appreciate.
* LadyAndKnight: A platonic version with [[spoiler:Ai Haibara]] with him as the Knight. When the already adult [[spoiler:Akai]] gave a DeclarationOfProtection to [[spoiler:Haibara while masquerading as Subaru Okiya]], he explicitly compared her to a princess and himself to a knight that would protect her. Subverted in that there are no romantic undertones because [[spoiler: not only Ai is much younger than Akai ''and'' is OlderThanTheyLook thanks to a FountainOfYouth, but she is the sister of his [[TheLostLenore dead girlfriend Akemi]], who is implied to have asked him to protect Ai before being murdered.]]
* NiceHat: His trademark black knit cap. He's also been seen wearing a brimmed hat. He's almost never seen without a hat of some kind.
* NoSocialSkills: Even though he means well, Shuichi is notably clumsy at trying to comfort and connect with others. [[spoiler:As Okiya, his technique to approach Haibara leaves her terrified of him, and repeated contact only intensifies her loathing.]] Despite his social awkwardness, Shuichi is not unempathetic; he gives Jodie some hope by leaving her a message in his own handwriting, and leaves her a very roundabout hint about his identity after knocking her down even though he cannot reveal the truth to her yet.
* ParentalSubstitute: Invoked. [[spoiler:His mother, Mary, wanted him to act as a surrogate father figure to his only sister and youngest sibling, Masumi, since their father died before she was born.]]
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Was set up to make readers think that he was Gin in disguise.]]
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:He ''is'' Okiya Subaru. The reason why he's sensitive about his neck is because his covered neck hides a voice-changer choker, and the one time his bare neck is seen, he didn't say anything.]]
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:Infiltrated the Black Organization and became "Rye".]]
* ShadowArchetype: To [[TheHero Shinichi Kudo/Conan Edogawa]], as they share many personality traits: [[AmateurSleuth Amazing deductive skills,]] [[NoSocialSkills have trouble relating to others,]] [[NervesOfSteel cool under pressure,]] [[FatalFlaw their main flaw is]] [[IWorkAlone their "I work alone" tendencies,]] [[ManipulativeBastard they are not above manipulating their own friends/allies,]] [[LoveInterest their main love interest are even similar in appearance and personality]] [[StarCrossedLovers with a similar predicament]], and [[{{Fanboy}} fans of Sherlock Holmes.]] [[spoiler:They both have lived doubled lives]]. Additionally, The Boss of the Black Organization believes Akai to be a 'Silver Bullet' who could potentially bring them down. Vermouth eventually also gives this nickname and status to Shinichi. However, Conan/Shinichi still keeps in touch with Ran and has formed various new friendships and alliances despite all that he's been through. Akai on the other hand is emotionally closed, and arguably has become even more so [[spoiler:after becoming Subaru]].
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: [[spoiler:As Subaru he wears glasses and hasn't lost his deduction skills.]]
* TheSouthpaw: Akai has shown to be left-handed.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler: Him and Akemi Miyano -- He started dating her only to strengthen his position as TheMole for the Black Organization, but seeing that she was an AntiVillain and that she liked him ''despite'' suspecting that he was using her [[BecomingTheMask made him change his mind]]. When he was found out he tried to get her to come with him, but she refused because her little sister was an Org. member and she didn't want to abandon her. And few afterwards, after a last and failed attempt to free herself and her sister, she was murdered.]]
* TheStoic: He ''never'' loses his cool, both as himself or as [[spoiler:Subaru]].
* StoicSpectacles: [[spoiler:While disguising as Subaru he now wears glasses and still the calm, stoic person he was as Shuichi]].
* SupremeChef: In chapter 898, he said [[spoiler:that it's Yukiko who taught him cooking when he disguised as Subaru]].
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:He fakes his death and it's revealed YEARS later that he's currently living under the fake identity of Okiya Subaru]].

* MultiEthnicName: First name is American. Last name is Japanese.

[[folder:James Black]]
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/261429.jpg]]
->''Voiced by Creator/IemasaKayumi (JP)''

A high ranking FBI agent and the superior to [[spoiler:Jodie]], Akai, and Andre.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Blonde in his first anime appearance. Has grey hair in subsequent episodes.
* CoolOldGuy: He even wants to listen to Conan.
* TheLestrade: He's basically the FBI version of the Tokyo police force's Juzo Megure.
* MistakenIdentity: During his first appearance, he was mistaken by the Japanese media to be the wealthy American sponsor of a popular circus that was visiting Japan. Unfortunately, so did some kidnappers looking for a ransom.
* ParentalSubstitute: Seems to have this relationship with [[spoiler:Jodie]], because her father was his fellow FBI partner.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Allows his agents to take the lead because he trusts their abilities.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:Akai]] has revealed that James already knew all along from the beginning about [[spoiler:Akai's faked death]]. But he kept it a secret from everyone in FBI because [[spoiler:Akai]] asked him not to tell everyone about it.
* TheStoic: Usually keeps a cool head.

[[folder:Andre Camel]]
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/149335.jpg]]
->''Voiced by Creator/KiyoyukiYanada (JP)''

A recurring FBI agent who feels in-debt to Akai [[spoiler:due to an error he made in a past Black Organization case]].
----
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:He volunteers to be the solo driver of the truck housing Kir to partially make-up for his past mistake.]]
* BadassDriver: During the time when he was tasked with [[spoiler:deliberately transporting Kir back to the Black Organization]], his superb driving skills allowed him to position the vehicle he was driving that was rigged with explosives such that he could escape from it unnoticed when it exploded.
* BusmansHoliday: Has a strange tendency to get caught up with the MysteryOfTheWeek during his off-duty appearances.
* DrinkOrder: Camel likes fruit juice drinks, especially the one they serve at the restaurant on the top of the New Beika Hotel. His liking of them accidentally got him involved in murder case as the primary suspect.
* FaceOfAThug: Which got him suspected as the culprit during a murder case.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler:How Andre feels regarding a past case that was meant to capture the Black Organization's Gin. At a warehouse where Akai, under his Rye alias, was going to meet Gin and have him forcibly arrested by a squad of FBI agents, he left his post when he noticed an old man walking in the area and told him to leave due to the area being dangerous. What Andre failed to realize was that this old man was a scout of the Black Organization making sure that the meeting between Akai and Gin was safe from outside interference. Not only did this expose Akai of being an FBI agent to the Organization, but Andre also believes that this led to Akai's girlfriend, Akemi Miyano, being murdered.]]
* RedHerring: He was thought to be the Black Organization's spy during the Haido Central Hospital arc.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: He likes the special curry served at Danny's. Just like in the DrinkOrder section above, his liking of the food accidentally got him involved in a murder case, except this time as a primary witness.
