    Makoto Kyougoku
Voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama (JP), Ricardo Maturana (third Latin-American Spanish dub)

A famous karate champion who becomes Sonoko's long-distance boyfriend later in the series. He's from Izu and his family owns a ryokan there.

Mandatory Naming Note: The last two kanji of his name (-goku Makoto) is Alternate Character Reading of Kyokushin, a major school of karate (This has been lampshaded in-universe).
  • The Ace: Holds the record of being undefeated in 400 matches around the world.
  • Adorkable: He gets easily flustered when he's with Sonoko.
  • Ambiguously Brown: On the darker side of someone from Tokyo.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Not bad at these.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Through nothing but a harsh, disciplined training in karate that has dominated most of his life, Makoto Kyogoku can defeat a small army of hired thugs, knock out armed criminals and dodge bullets.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Downplayed. We don't to see it to great extent since he only appears from time to time, but we can tell from his first appearance that he does not like any guy hitting on Sonoko.
  • Genius Bruiser: Makoto is shown to have an astute mind due to his extensive training, being able to identify Kaitou Kid disguised as Sonoko because of a difference in finger lengths. This is possible because he can take full dimensions of a person he meets in moments. It is a habit of analyzing his opponents physical features with a glance.
  • Gentle Giant: Makoto is a dorky, sweet guy and is one of the tallest characters in the series.
  • Long Distance Relationship: With Sonoko.
  • Love at First Sight: Makoto actually saw Sonoko for the first time when she was cheering for Ran in a karate tournament, and since then he had a crush on her.
  • Made of Iron: Seems to have an uncanny resistance to pain. Come on, he gets a knife stuck in his left arm and just says he's okay!
  • Nerves of Steel: As a master martial artist, Makoto is usually cool and collected, especially in crisis situations.
  • Nice Guy: He can be awkward, but he's also brave, honest, polite, selfless, and deeply loves Sonoko.
  • Oblivious to Love: He's horribly Not Good with People, so he seems to have a hard time picking up on her "subtle" hints—in the Valentine's Day episode where she went to a resort with Kogoro's family to make a chocolate heart for (she told Makoto) "the person she cared for most," Makoto showed up to see who this person was and if he was a suitable companion for her. This turned out to be a good thing, as he arrived just in time to help KO two murderers who got the drop on everyone else. When he asked who it was and Sonoko pointed at him, he turned around to look behind him.
  • Official Couple: With Sonoko Suzuki.
  • One-Man Army: He can also take out several guards with guns ready to fire at point-blank range.
  • Pointless Band-Aid: Near his left eye.
  • Red Baron: "The Prince of Kicks", according to Ran.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Savvy Guy (adorkable and kinda more oblivious than the average "savvy guy") to Sonoko's Energetic Girl (an easily emotional Genki Girl).
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Makoto has only ever shown a romantic interest in Sonoko.
  • Skilled, but Na´ve: Very talented karate expert. Very naive in any social interactions.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: He wears contacts when he spars, but Makoto does wear glasses. And he's been shown to have a keen eye for detail. A skill that allowed him know that Kaitou Kid had disguised himself as Sonoko.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome: Tall, dark-skinned, and extremely good-looking.

    Azusa Enomoto
Voiced by Mikiko Enomoto (JP), Betsabé Guitérrez and Josefina Becerra (third Latin-American Spanish dub)

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.
  • Satellite Character: Mostly acts as a connection for Mouri to have a place to sit down and discuss upcoming cases.

    Yoko Okino
Voiced by Yuri Amano / Miki Nagasawa (JP)

One of the earliest recurring characters on record, she is Kogoro's favourite Idol Singer. Often guides the Mouris in situations involving the entertainment industry.
  • 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.
  • Plucky Girl: The day after her ex-boyfriend was Spurned into Suicide and framed her as he died, Yoko returned to work. Ran comments on her strength of mind and heart.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She's very, very rich and famous, but remains a very kind and gentle girl nevetheless.

  • Cool Old Guy: Outside of his fervour in capturing Kaito Kid, he is a very amiable person and gets along well with his niece and her friends.

Voiced by Chiharu Suzuka (JP), Cynthia Cranz (EN)

  • Cool Big Sis: Is this for Sonoko.
  • Dub Name Change: Angie Sebastian

Inspector Megure's wife.

Voiced by Akiko Hiramatsu (JP)

Dr. Araide's housekeeper.

  • 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.

    Midori Kuriyama
Voiced by Asako Dodo (JP)

Eri's secretary.
  • Sexy Secretary: She works as Eri's secretary and is quite attractive.

    Samizu Kichiemon

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.

Voiced by Sakura Tange (JP)

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

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".

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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

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. All but confirmed in 972 as the matriarch of the Akai family, a woman in her 40'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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Reveal: 972 pretty much confirms Mary as the matriarch or mother figure of the Akai family.
  • 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...
