The character that drives the backstory
of the 17 Million Hostages
story arc. Former member of the bomb squad, he was later transferred to the criminal team because of his That One Case
— and it was him
who became another painful That One Case
Hiroki Sawada/Noah's Ark
From the Non-Serial Movie Phantom of Baker Street
- Adorably Precocious Child: Subverted, if not deconstructed. While he is young (10) and bears as much adult responsibility (being a master programmer) as for the norm of this trope, he is portrayed as an angsty character. That does not prevent some fans from portraying him per the norm of this trope, though.
- Author Avatar: Often suspected to be one towards the movie's writer Hisashi Nozawa, not helped by the fact Nozawa himself committed suicide about 1.5 years the movie screened.
- Bishounen: At 10, he's a kid edition, but he does have the looks for it.
- Brain Uploading: He pretty much coded his entire brain as Noah's Ark before his suicide. In the entire movie nobody even questioned whether Noah's Ark is Hiroki.
- Child Prodigy: Deconstructed. This poor kid's life sucked because he was one.
- Deus Angst Machina: Consider all tropes surrounding him, and consider his age. Everyone would have reached their Despair Event Horizon.
- He Knows Too Much: What is being said is the immediate reason for his death is because he found out Schneider was the direct descendant of Jack the Ripper.
- Heroic Sacrifice: his self-destruction at the end of this movie was that an AI of that complexity is too early for this world and would easily be controled by the bad guys.
- Ill Boy: While this has not been further expounded about, it certainly does not help with his social issues. But it's not what takes his life.
- Improbable Age: Remember, he's studying grad school in MIT and written two marketable, major pieces of software at 10 years old, it's pretty exaggerated. Of course, this is also a deconstruction, as he has huge emotional problems because of it.
- Intelligence Equals Isolation: A pretty tear jerking example as this was not because of his failure to connect with others. In the beginning, Japanese schools just ignored his intelligence. Under the wing of Schneider, he got accelerated at an improbable rate—and in effect became house arrested by Schneider.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: He almost has no friends.
- Innocent Prodigy: He switches between this and Wise Beyond Their Years.
- Lonely Rich Kid: While under foster care by Schneider, although the reason is a bit different from the the standard of that trope—Schneider put him in a highly acclerated educational program and then pretty much put him to work. Understandably, he was a bit broken for that.
- Parental Abandonment: His parents separated over his education, and he followed his mother to the US. Not long after that, his mother died.
- Plot-Triggering Death: Were he alive, the entire plot didn't exist at all.
- One Steve Limit: Averted and then played straight. Hiroki is a very common male name in Japan, and there has been at least two one-timer that has the same name before him. Although, referring to "Hiroki" without any quantification usually refers to him
- Starts with a Suicide: What begins his case.
The "Detective of the South" in the Detectives' Koshien
arc. She's from Fukuoka
, a big town in the southern island of Kyushu.
The "Detective of the North" in the Detectives' Koshien
arc. He's born in Tokyo and raised in Hokkaido
, a huge island in northern Japan.
Dr. Narumi Asai
Dr. Narumi Asai alias of Seiji Asai, born Seiji Asou.
Appeared in the Moonlight Sonata
arc. She is the beautiful doctor of the fishing island of Tsukukage, and kind of a Na´ve Newcomer
to the island itself. She is actually Seiji Asou, the son of the late local pianist who died under strange circumstances, and has returned under a disguise to find out who did his family in.Mandatory Naming Note
: His surname by birth, Asou
is also that of one of Aoyama's assistants.
Voiced by: Yukari Shin (JPN)
Shinichi, Ran and Sonoko's old sempai, and apparently Shinichi's first love. She invites them to a karaoke party to celebrate her birthday, but then the encounter goes sour as a fire breaks in and Asami, who's taking a nap since she doesn't feel well, almost dies...
Shinichi and Ran's former music teacher, as well as the much-loved daughter of Kiyonaga Matsumoto. Who is poisoned to almost death in her wedding day...
Yusuke Sakata born Yusuke Inaba.
A policeman working under Chief Touyama, who appears in the Naniwa Murder Case
arc. As well as the Sympathetic Murderer of said arc.
- Anti-Villain: Not a bad person, but...
- Driven to Suicide: Tries to shoot himself in the head when found out. Heiji struggles with him and manages to stop him... at the cost of being shot.
- Love Makes You Evil: The love for his father drove him to kill the ones responsible for the Deadly Prank that murder him.
- Knight Templar: Views himself as such. Heiji disagrees.
- Serial Killer: He killed four people, and was planning to kill two more and use the last one as a scapegoat.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Looks a lot like his late father. Actually a huge plot point: seeing him caused Numabuchi a Villainous BSOD that let Yusuke learn what happened to Inaba... and then seeing Inaba's picture lets Conan and Heiji identify him as the real culprit.
An old friend of Wataru Takagi, and his deceased Big Brother Mentor
. Apparently a friend of Tooru Amuro, too.
- Big Brother Mentor: For Takagi. Including the typical death part, too.
- Forgotten Fallen Friend: This, too. Takagi and Amuro had made no mention of him until this case. In a sort-of meta example: Date was believed by some fans to be Scotch, the Cynicism Cathalyst and FFF for both Amuro and Akai, but Aoyama disproved it.
- Look Both Ways: He didn't do this while trying to retrieve his notepad, got hit by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel of his car, and ended up dead for his trouble.
- Love Hurts: It hurts so much in his case, that his girlfriend Natalie crossed the Despair Event Horizon after identifying his corpse and hung herself.
- Name's the Same: In-Universe. He and Takagi had the same first name (albeit written in different characters), and Date referred to the two as the "Wataru brothers". A plot point: Fuemoto mistook Takagi for the already dead Date and put him in the Death Trap he had staged for Date, not knowing that Date had kicked it.
- Oral Fixation: He often had a toothpick in his mouth.
- Posthumous Character: Is already dead before the main story, and has been for at very least two years.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Takagi's Sensitive Guy.
- Tragic Keepsake: Date's black notepad and the ring he wanted to offer to his girlfriend are this for Takagi.
