Back to [[Characters/DetectiveConan Main.]]

[[folder:Sumiko Kobayashi]]
->''Voiced by Creator/YukoKobayashi / Yuko Kato (JP), Creator/StephanieYoung (EN)'', Erika Robledo (first Latin-American Spanish dub), Laura Orlázabal (third Latin-American Spanish dub)

Conan and the Detective Boys' class teacherm who later appoints herself as their "manager" when they're out solving cases.

[[spoiler:She later becomes Inspector Shiratori's girlfriend on account of him remembering that she was the girl he had helped in the past and not the physically similar Sato, whom he had been chasing after originally.]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her "Before" appearance was colored brown. Her "Middle" and "After" appearances had her colored as dark blue.
* {{Adorkable}}: Mostly when she acts as the "manager" of the Detective Boys or when she's with [[spoiler:her boyfriend, Shiratori]], who slips into borderline {{adorkable}} status around ''her''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: A rare emotional example. When she thought that [[spoiler:Shiratori was only with her because of her strong resemblance to Detective Satou, she remained cold and took quite the distance towards him until she remembered him as the boy who helped her.]]
** Even before that there's her whole SadistTeacher act, which worked so well that only the kids stepping into her rehearsals could undo it.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With [[spoiler:Shiratori]]. It's also rather curiously played with: [[spoiler: They met as children, yes, but unlike the other "childhood couples" they didn't know each other's names and lost sight of each other for ''decades'' after their chance encounter. When they met again, adulthood and time had changed them throughly (Shiratori was quite more prideful, Kobayashi was more shy and quiet), he had chased after another woman for a long time [[LovingAShadow believing that she was Kobayashi]], and [[ForgottenFirstMeeting she couldn't remember him]]. [[FirstGirlAfterAll He still recognized her as the "destiny girl"]] [[LoveAtFirstSight upon laying his sight on her]], she later recalled him, and then they got together.]]
* CoolTeacher: After her first episode.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Her "after" appearance has her with matching black-blue hair and blue eyes, rather than her original light brown hair/black eyes looks.
* FanGirl: Of Ranpo Edogawa.
* FlowerMotifs: [[CherryBlossoms Sakura]]. Which turn out to be [[spoiler:a huge hint that she was Shiratori's true love from childhood.]]
-->'''Kobayashi:''' "Because the sakura [[spoiler:is the symbol of police officers! Determined, kind, and dignified.]] It's a flower [[spoiler:of justice!]]"
* FriendToAllChildren: Even with her SadistTeacher act, she was only doing it for the children's sake. After she drops it, she plays the trope completely straight and all the kids adore her.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: During her SadistTeacher act, Kobayashi took care of the plants and fish in secret. Ayumi once caught her doing so.
* GirlyGirl: [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Towards]] Sato's {{tomboy}}. Rather eagerly lampshaded by Yumi when they meet and she mistakes her for Sato, then is surprised by "Miwako"'s meekness.
* HiddenDepths: A retroactive example. [[spoiler:In Shiratori's flashback to when he first met Kobayashi-sensei, notice how she is acting more assertive when she catches the two '''grown up''' thieves.]]
* HotTeacher: More of a [[{{Moe}} cute one]], though.
* IdenticalStranger: Without her glasses, Kobayashi looks a LOT like Detective Sato. [[spoiler: Which troubles her when Shiratori shows interest in her, as she believes at first he [[LovingAShadow only likes her because of her physical similarity to Sato]]. (Not to mention, the reason why Shiratori mistook Sato as the girl he liked was ''because'' of her looks.)]]
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: [[spoiler: Subverted. She was this [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl to Shiratori]], but only when they were children. When they meet again as adults and properly get together, she has grown into a more shy and thoughtful person. Nevertheless, Shiratori [[TrueLove loves her just the way she is]].]]
* MeaningfulName: Sumiko, means "lovely child" which reflects her [[FriendToAllChildren fondness for children.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: A rare adult version.
* MoralityPet: Downplayed. While [[spoiler:Shiratori]] is far from evil or a being a straight up jerk, it's all but stated that [[MoeCouplet she brings out the best in him.]]
* NiceGirl: One of the friendliest people you'll meet in the series.
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Shiratori]].
* {{Otaku}}: Of mystery novels.
* PetTheDog: Even when she was making herself pass as a SadistTeacher, Kobayashi couldn't fully hide her kind nature, thus she watered the plants and fed the pet fishes in secret.
* RescueRomance: With [[spoiler:Shiratori, since she was the girl he rescued and admired long time ago.]]
* SadistTeacher: Her JerkAssFacade. For the reason, see the ShrinkingViolet section.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: {{Subverted}} [[spoiler:with [[GentlemanDetective Shiratori]]. They ''used'' to fit in the trope [[spoiler: during [[ForgottenFirstMeeting their first and almost last encounter]] when [[ChildhoodFriendRomance they were children]] ]], but [[spoiler: when they found each other again 20 years later, Sumiko had grown into a much gentler ShrinkingViolet and Shiratori was more [[{{Pride}} arrogant]] than savvy. [[OfficialCouple They still got together]].]]
* {{Sensei chan}}: Downplayed. She only shows traits of the trope when she tries to be the manager of the Detective Kids, but otherwise she's pretty competent and serious in her job and her students love her to boot. [[spoiler: And since she has a boyfriend, there's nothing to worry in regards to the ChristmasCake part.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: After some really bad experiences in her former workplace, poor Kobayashi was so terrified of doing badly in parent meetings that she used to practice in the empty school at night with dolls. The Detective Kids thought she was a witch, though. (And Conan thought she was planning to kill someone else!).
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She was at first attracted to [[spoiler: Shiratori]] for his gentlemanly and protective behavior, but what made her ''actually'' fall in love with the guy was [[spoiler: seeing [[LawfulGood him]] deal a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the guy who [[HeKnowsTooMuch tried to silence her]], which [[ForgottenFirstMeeting lets her remember]] how he protected her as children in a very similar way ''and'' dispelled the belief that he was using her to forget about Sato.]]
* ThroughHisStomach: Once she and [[spoiler: Shiratori]] get together, she begins making ''bento'' lunch boxes for him.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B. See her BewareTheNiceOnes section.

[[folder:Dr. Tomoaki Araide]]
->''Voiced by Creator/HideyukiHori (JP)''

The handsome son of Kogoro's doctor, with the bad luck of being introduced [[spoiler: in the case where his dad was murdered.]] After that, he's been seen around more than once, acting nice to almost everyone and being a possible RomanticRunnerUp.

* GambitPileup: [[spoiler:In the middle of ''two'' of these. See the main page for more details.]]
* HospitalHottie: Just look at him!
* KindHeartedcatLover
* {{Megane}}: The glasses he wears highlight his physical beauty.
* NiceGuy: Even veering into a male {{Ingenue}} of sorts, since he's way too gullible sometimes.
* RomanticFalseLead: Was presented as one, thought he's much nicer than the standard. [[spoiler: And Ran was more interested in his sweater.]]
* RomanticRunnerUp: Sorry, dude. You're nice and all, we all know it... but you're just not Shinichi. [[spoiler: He doesn't win even in the ''Stranger from Ten Years Later'' OAV, no matter if it's canon or not.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: When he returns to his normal life after [[spoiler: Vermouth]] tried to kill him and took over his identity for a while, most people don't notice a difference and comment on what a good person he is. This causes him to wonder whether his impostor is really evil.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Not as "dark" as others, but pretty tall and ''very'' beautiful.

* FunnyForeigner: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Jodie during her initial appearances to [[ObfuscatingStupidity make people put their guards down when facing her.]]

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: She was named after both Clarice Starling, one of the main protagonists in Silence of the Lambs, and actress JodieFoster who performed Starling's role in the movie adaptation of the same name.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Was a very obvious suspect for being Vermouth for a long time. A blonde American woman with suspicious skills investigating at Conan's school, she even used Vermouth's famous CatchPhrase, "A secret makes a woman woman". Turns out she's an FBI agent looking for Vermouth who has picked the phrase up from her enemy.]]
* SecretKeeper: Quoting [[spoiler:Vermouth]]: "Secret makes a woman woman."
* WalkingSpoiler: TheReveal [[spoiler:that Jodie is an FBI Agent is almost impossible to cover up without giving away too much]].

[[folder:Rena Mizunashi]]
->''Voiced by Creator/KotonoMitsuishi (JP)''

* StrongFamilyResemblance: [[spoiler:Eisuke and Hidemi look a LOT like each other, and said similar looks tip off Conan about their familiar bond.]] She also looks a LOT like [[spoiler:[[ her mother]]]] with the exception of their hair color.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: [[spoiler: She acts cold and efficient when with the Organization, but her kind nature often shines through. Hence why Gin and ''That Man'' don't always trust her.]]
** In the manga, she looks [[spoiler:far less malicious than she was in the anime, though. Thus most readers don't have difficult times to guess that she's in the good side all along.]]

[[folder:Eisuke Hondou]]
->''Voiced by Creator/JunkoNoda (JP)''

A NewTransferStudent to Sonoko and Ran's class who has a somewhat weak health and comes off to be extremely clumsy. He came to Japan to find his sister's whereabouts, [[spoiler: that sister being Hidemi Hondou of the CIA, aka, Kir of the Black Organization.]] He returned home shortly after the discovery, [[spoiler: but not before telling Conan that he knew of his true identity, and that he had developed feelings for Ran.]]

[[ThemeNaming Mandatory naming note]]: "Hondou" comes from Bondo (ボンド), the Japanese pronounciation of [[Film/JamesBond (James) Bond]], Eisuke from mystery writer Eisuke Kaito.
* BigSisterWorship: To [[spoiler: Hidemi]]. As seen in [[spoiler: their flashback, Hidemi]] has saved Eisuke's life several times, includes [[spoiler: giving a large portion of blood donation to him,]] which later becomes one of plot points that [[spoiler: Rena Mizunashi]] is really Eisuke's [[spoiler:sister, Hidemi.]]

[[spoiler:This is a plot point as his blood type changed because of it: he used to be a O, but now he ''and'' Hidemi/Rena are AB.]] ''All'' story arcs related to him happened in hospitals. ''Even'' when he's not the one admitted.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: He was born and raised in Osaka
* LoveAtFirstSight: [[spoiler:Tells Conan that he fell in love with Ran the first time he met her.]]
* LoveTriangle: [[spoiler: Invoked and subverted. In front of Conan, Eisuke claims to have fallen in love with Ran and that he wants to take her to America with him.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: With his older sister, [[spoiler: Hidemi Hondou aka Rena Mizunashi aka Kir.]] Unknowingly lampshaded by Ran, who notices how the NewTransferStudent looks a ''lot'' like [[spoiler: Rena Mizuhashi herself]]...

[[folder:Masumi Sera]]

In-story she's mostly seen as a tomboyish BikerBabe, and at least one of her friends (Sonoko) has found her pretty in a boyish way. Though in one case, [[spoiler: Kaitou Kid [[MuggedForDisguise mugs her for her clothes]] after mistaking her for a teenage boy]].
* CatchPhrase: Sera's catchphrase upon the conclusion of a case is "case closed".
* {{Expy}}: Of ''another'' ''Conan'' character, [[Characters/DetectiveConanOneSceneWonders Natsuki Koshimizu]].

* TheMole: [[spoiler:He is Bourbon. And the fake Akai that was around for a while.]]
* MysteriousPast: Previously attended the police academy and was a friend of Takagi's deceased superior, Wataru Date. [[spoiler:Becomes even more mysterious after one wonders how someone from the police academy became a member of the Black Organization, or if he was already a member of the Organization before applying to the academy.]]
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:When he announces his Bourbon codename in front of a normally sized Shiho Miyano (Kaito Kid in disguise) during the Mystery Train arc.]]
** [[spoiler: Much later, it ''also'' turns out that he's actually a mole infiltrating the Black Organization. His actual allegiance is that it's not the FBI, which he has some disdain for; he seems to be working for the Japanese Secret Police instead.]]
