  • Ascended Extra: She originally was the unnamed opponent of Ran's school karate match, but then was given an actual role by episode 847. Makoto's backstory on how he developed his Love at First Sight towards Sonoko also provided this buff to happen for Hina.

  • Defeat Means Friendship: Hina became friends with Ran after their match from their first episode (Episode One special.)

  • Hair Decorations: A simple hairclip.
  • The Nicknamer: She calls Ran "Ranmaru" due to Ran's name sounding like "Mori Ranmaru," a famous samurai affiliated with Oda Nobunaga.
  • Plucky Girl: Hina's a sweet, easy-going, optimistic, and fearless girl. When Kogoro Mouri asked her what she would do if she does met an alien for real, her reply was she will ask "why do they come to Earth," and "if she can ride in their UFO?" And if the aliens are bad, she will "have a heartfelt conversation with them using her fist."
  • The Rival: Considers herself as one for Ran, but they're on friendly terms.
  • Sempai/Kohai: The kohai to Makoto Kyogoku's sempai.

  • It's All My Fault: During the case she's introduced, she blames herself for the murder of Chikako and the attack on Ran since the reunion was her idea.

A recurring housemaid who had previously gone to the same school as Naeko and Chiba.
  • Childhood Friends: With the rookie traffic cop Naeko Miike and Officer Chiba.
  • Mystery Magnet: Poor girl cannot seem to avoid running into murder cases in her workplaces. Which was lampshaded by Inspector Megure, who fervently hoped that she does not turn into another Kogoro.
    Shuukichi Haneda 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9b72767865ea2f39e2f1bc2e6048b3b8.jpg

Yumi's ex-boyfriend who is actually a professional Shogi player. Chapter 972 of the manga reveals that he is a member of the Akai family, more exactly Sera's mysterious "middle brother". His "Haneda" surname comes from his dead mentor, the mysterious Kouji Haneda.

Mandatory Naming Note: His full name Shukichi Haneda (羽田 秀𠮷) and the in-story nickname Taiko (太閤) are both references to Toyotomi Hideyoshi (豊臣 秀吉), who was renamed from Hashiba Hideyoshi (羽柴 秀吉). Additionally, Haneda's "Hane" (羽) also comes from Yoshiharu Habu (羽生 善治), a real-life professional shogi player who has won all seven titles.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Yumi calls him "Chukichi" because, when he eats cheese, he makes a "chu" sort-of noise.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: As a professional shoji player, Shukichi is very intelligent. He was shown to be able to participate in solving a murder case next to his house, where he effectively figured out the trick behind the victim's suicide note, as well as the culprit's identity.
  • Gotta Catch Them All: His ambition is to win all seven professional shogi title tournaments.note 
  • Hidden Depths: He seems to know more about Conan than he lets on. In their first meeting, he's silently saw and immediately recognized Conan's deduction skills.
  • Hyper Awareness: Appears to be able to pick out clues in his introductory case at around the same time as Conan. Justified that this ability is probably what made him a successful shogi player.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Shukichi is perhaps the most characterized by his hair, which sticks up in the back like a bed head.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Believes that he is unworthy of Yumi until he can win all seven professional shogi title tournaments.
  • Living a Double Life: Actively conceals his profession from Yumi as he does not want her to know about his rising celebrity status (he already won four of the seven titles as to date) before his ambition is fulfilled. Also helped by the fact that Yumi does not seem to keep track of news from the shogi world.
  • Meaningful Rename: He changed his surname to the one of his Big Brother Mentor, Kouji Haneda. Probably to hide his identity as a member of the Akai and Sera family, and to honor Kouji after his murder.
  • Nice Guy: Haneda has a very cheerful personality.
  • Perma-Stubble: As seen in the picture.
  • Photographic Memory: Haneda is extremely skillful at memorizing, as shown when he managed to remember the code written on Sakurako's paper despite having only seen it for a very short amount of time. He also claims to be the best in this field.
  • The Reveal: Chapter 972 of the manga confirms that he is the mysterious "second brother" of the Akai family, alongside all but confirming Mary aka the Mysterious Child as the matriarch.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Has a keen eye and amazing deduction prowess on par with Conan.

Persons relating to Masumi Sera

     Mary 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/710258faf9492ebff1622e44addac006.jpg
Voiced by: Atsuko Tanaka

An odd pre-teen girl who showed up very recently in both manga and anime, and is shown to be secretly living with Masumi Sera. Confirmed in 972 as the matriarch of the Akai family, a woman in her late 40/maybe even almost 50's who is now stuck as a pre-teen.

Mandatory Naming Note: "Mary" probably comes from Watson's first wife, Mary Morstan.
  • Bifauxnen: She looks fairly androgynous, and asks Sera to introduce her as "her little sister from outside the domain" if somebody asks.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Her blonde hair, green eyes, and english name scream foreigner but since her maiden name, Sera, is clearly Japanese, that implies she has Japanese heritage somewhere in there.
  • Foreshadowing: She has sharp eyes similar to Akai's and Sera's and is seen super happy when she sees Shuukichi winning his shougi matches. This subtly hints to a connection between them - She's almost surely their mother.
  • Ill Girl: Almost always seen having an unexplained cough.
  • The Reveal: 972 pretty much confirms Mary as the matriarch or mother figure of the Akai family.
    • Episode 849 sneaks some more info: It shows a legal paper with the names of Haneda Shukichi's parents, which was far more blurry in the manga: the father's name is Tsutomu Akai... and the mother's is Mary Sera. So yeah...
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: She acts cool and poised, but seems to be genuinely giddy when she sees Haneda win one of his matches.
  • Teens Are Short: Conan describes her as looking about middle-school aged, yet she isn't all that much taller than Conan in size and is considerably shorter than high schooler Masumi Sera when they're seen together.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Looks like a middle school aged child...and sounds like a mature adult woman. This only boosted the speculation that she's an APTX victim, which is all but confirmed in 972: in a flashback to 10 years ago there's a woman with a young adult son (Akai), a teenage second son (Shuukichi), and a little daughter (Sera), and she looks exactly like an adult Mary.
  • Wise Beyond Her Years: She seems to be very mature for someone who is middle-school age (12-15 in Japan) tops. It's been speculated that she might be another victim of the Organization, shrunk by the same drug that made Shinichi/Conan and Ai/Shiho into "kids". Recently, its come to light this may very well be the case, as in 959 Sera, while panicking, called her "mama", plus 972 has a woman who looks exactly like her and is referred to as "Mary-okaasan" ("Mom Mary") by Shuichi and Shukichi...

    Tsutomu 
A mysterious man who has been missing for almost 17 years... His whole name is Tsutomu Akai, and he is Mary's husband plus the father of Shuichi Akai, Shukichi Haneda, and Masumi Sera.

Mandatory Naming Note:The kanji in his name, 務武, can also be read as "Zumu". This is a possible reference to Zeon Zum Deikun (ジオン・ズム・ダイクン Jion Zumu Daikun?), the father of Char Aznable... hinting at him being the father of Shuichi Akai.
  • Disappeared Dad: The missing patriarch of the Akai family. It's specially strong in the case of his youngest child, since he disappeared before said child, Masumi, was born.
  • It's Personal: His eldest child Shuichi, was quite affected by his disappearance.
  • Mysterious Past: It seems he was involved in the deaths of Amanda and Haneda and somehow gained lots of enemies, so as a result he had to send his whole family away.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He's said to look a lot like his middle child, Shukichi Haneda.

Persons relating to Heiji Hattori

    Soushi Okita 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/270px_soshi_okita_anime.jpg

A handsome, cheerful fellow who is Heiji's other rival, this time in kendo. He attends Momiji's school.

Mandatory Naming Note: Logically, named after the legendary swordsman Okita Souji (沖田 総司). Okita himself is a descendant of the legendary one in-story.

The Ooka Clan

    Momiji Ooka 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momiji.PNG
Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino

A schoolgirl who seems to have a special connection with Heiji Hattori...

Mandatory Naming Note: Her surname name, Ooka, comes from Ooka Tadasuke (大岡 忠相). Not only he was a Real Life samurai and magistrate in the service of the Tokugawa shogunate, but has been featured in jidai geki series like Ōoka Echizen and Meibugyō! Ōoka Echizen, among others.
  • Ascended Extra: She's set to be one: the Movie 21 is supposed to be about her, Heiji and Kazuha.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: She catches on some clues of the second case she's in... before Amuro or Conan do. Even better, she wasn't there to start with: someone she knew (her butler Iori Muga) gave her details through cellphone, she decoded them and relayed her discoveries to him. Even adding some stuff that her informant had not caught on..
  • Foil: Towards Kazuha. Kazuha is an middle-class Action Girl with long hair in a ponytail, a dark-blue Sailor Fuku, rather tomboyish behavior and looks, who doesn't aim to be an Amateur Sleuth, and who can go from Tsun Dere to Tongue-Tied regarding Heiji; Momiji, on the other hand, is a very rich girl with shorter hair and no Hair Decorations, a white and gray Sailor Fuku, very Girly Girl-like mannerisms (i.e. she paints her nails in rather elaborate patterns and wears small earrings), is implied to be an Amateur Sleuth, and is very vocal about her feelings for Heiji. And both of them know Heiji since childhood.
  • The Ojou: The Ice Queen type with some dashes of Spoiled Brat, from what it's been shown. Her family's butler Iori Muga follows her everywhere and, when not wearing her Sailor Fuku, she's seen in a kimono.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Sorta, as she's the junior champion of the hyakunin issha garuta card game.
  • Pinky Swear: In the trailer for the 21th movie, she's seen making one with none other than Heiji.
  • Sailor Fuku: Shown wearing one in her manga introduction. The 21th movie's trailer shows that it has a white blouse, light gray collar/skirt, dark blue scarf and dark grey lines on its collar and cuffs.
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: She seems to be dead set on marrying Heiji. Some notes suggest that she might have a shared past with him, probably a Childhood Marriage Promise. The trailer of the 21th movie supports this as there are mentions of a promise the two apparently made, coupled with an image of a young Heiji and a young Momiji making a Pinky Swear.

    Iori Muga 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/275px_muga_iori_profile.jpg
Voiced by Daisuke Ono

A servant of the Ooka family, plus Momiji's devoted companion.

Mandatory Naming Note: His name, Muga Iori, comes from Iori Sakakibara (榊原 伊織 Sakakibara Iori?), a doctor and close friend of Ooka Tadasuke in the series Ōoka Echizen, and Muga Takewaki (竹脇 無我 Takewaki Muga?), the actor who plays the role of Iori Sakakibara in the series.

An employee of Café Poirot, the coffee shop directly underneath the Mouri Detective Agency. She is often seen serving Mouri a cup of coffee and occasionally gives him a case that needs to be solved.

  • Art Evolution: To say her appearance drastically changed as the series went on would be quite an understatement. She's literally had three different looks including her most recent appearance seen here.
  • Monster of the Week: Her brother, Sugihito Enomoto, becomes a murder suspect for the Present from the True Culprit case.
  • Nice Girl: always sweet, kind and ready to help.
  • Satellite Character: Mostly acts as a connection for Mouri to have a place to sit down and discuss upcoming cases.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27_Yoko_8733.jpg
Voiced by Yuri Amano / Miki Nagasawa (JP)

  • Harp of Femininity: A scene of a TV drama she's starring on in-story has her playing the harp while in a very girly Pimped-Out Dress.
  • Idol Singer: Her day job. She also used to be a member of an idol singer group, and her former teammates appear in one case.
  • Mistaken for Romance: She and her former classmate Ryusuke Higo once go into a friendly outing. Everyone else thinks they're dating, including Ai and Kogoro.

Famous fashion designer using gingko leaves as her personal motif.

    Hikaru Yasumoto 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/35_Hikaru_762.jpg
Voiced by Akiko Hiramatsu (JP)

Dr. Araide's housekeeper.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Not Played for Laughs, as Dr. Araide Sr. treats her harshly due to her blunders.
  • Ill Girl: She met the Araide family when she was hospitalized, then started working for them.
  • Shrinking Violet
  • Unrequited Love: She might have feelings for Dr. Araide Jr.. No one would blame her, tho.
  • Unwitting Pawn: And Conan, Inspector Megure, and Dr. Araide's second wife/killer make sure it stays that way. Would anyone want to know that they accidentally killed someone by flipping on the lights at the worst moment? Poor Hikaru.

    Samizu Kichiemon 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samizudc.jpg

A deceased doll-maker dating back to the Bakumatsu era. Samizu was known as a genius that developed dangerous contraptions to safeguard several precious objects and gems.

Throughout the series, Conan and company come across some of his famous inventions that have lasted until the current day, and serve as some of the series' cases that requires Conan to figure out how Samizu's contraptions work.
  • Badass Grandpa: The few images seen of Samizu portrays him as an old man, and given the neat contraptions he made during his lifetime, he was damn good at his work.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Samizu knew how to come up with a few crazy tricks related to some of the structures and safes that Samizu built over the years to hide certain things of value.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Invented dangerous mechanical contraptions and structures to safeguard precious objects.
  • Posthumous Character: A character that's been long dead since he's from a time-period that took place in the 1800s.

    Rumi Wakasa 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rumiwakasa.PNG

A school teacher who works at Teitan Elementary, as Sumiko Kobayashi's assistant.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Her clumsiness is mostly played for laughs. Until 988, where Conan and Ai realize that it's maybe linked to lack of peripheral view... opening the possibility of her being the infamous Rum.
  • Meganekko: A gentle-looking woman (most of the time) who wears glasses.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She presents herself as a well-intentioned but clumsy and a bit child-like woman, but in her introductory case she donned a far more badass persona complete with Scary Shiny Glasses as soon as Conan and Co. were away. This has made the fandom wonder if she is the infamous Rum after all: in 988 Ai and Conan speculate that, like other people suspected to be Rum, she seems to be unable to see from her right eye...
    • In 988, as she speaks to Superintendent Kuroda, Rumi slips into a far more serious persona with a very dry wit and a sharp glance.
    • In 989, when the suspect of the case grabs Ayumi and tries to use her as a hostage, Rumi gives him both the mother of death glares and a borderline Slasher Smile, terrifying the guy so much that he drops his guard and this allows Kuroda to disarm him and rescue Ayumi.
  • Sensei-chan: At first glance she fits in since she's very gentle and sweet but also quite clumsy. But as already said, she subverts this since has a Badass Teacher side that only comes out when it's really needed and is also implied to have had a Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Shrinking Violet: Subverted, she looks sweet and unasuming but at times it's all but it's stated (and shown) that she's tougher than she looks.
  • The Reveal: 987 reveals a huge detail from her past: When Kouji Haneda's body was found, 17 years ago, a young Rumi was there and was even caught on a photo. Superintendent Kuroda wonders why as he makes research about the case, and he speculates whether Rumi was Haneda's girlfriend or relative.

    Kouji Haneda and Amanda Hughes 

Two persons who died in similar and very mysterious circumstances several years ago. Kouji was a mentor-like figure for Shuukichi Haneda and a shogi champion who also played chess, Amanda was a rich American woman and a fan of his, and both of them perished in the same American hotel. Ai says that Kohji Haneda's name was on the list of people killed by APTX 4869.

Mandatory Naming Note: "Kouji Haneda" (羽田 浩司 Haneda Kōji?) probably comes from Yoshiharu Habu (羽生 善治 Habu Yoshiharu?) and Kōji Tanigawa (谷川 浩司 Tanigawa Kōji?), real-life shogi players.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Kouji was this to Shuukichi, who apparently took up his surname out of respect for him. note 
  • Bodyguard Betrayal: It's been speculated that Amanda's bodyguard Asaka, who went missing when she and Kouji died, was actually the B.O. agent Rum in disguise and that he killed both Kouji and her.
  • Dying Clue: Some of these were left in the place where Kouji died. It spelled the name "ASACA RUM".
  • He Knows Too Much: Probably the case with Amanda, since she seems to have been in good terms with people from the CIA and FBI.
  • Posthumous Character: Both of them died 17 years ago.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: This case is what inspired Shuichi Akai to start working for the FBI.
  • Smart People Play Chess: The very smart Kouji played both traditional chess and shougi, which is known as "Japanese chess".
