Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Detective Conan (aka Case Closed), written/drawn by Gosho Aoyama (Magic Kaito and Yaiba) and published in Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday, is a very long-running anime and manga series. Seriously, with over 940 episodes, it's currently at 15th place in terms of total number of anime episodes,note or 10th that is still in production. and having surpassed 1000 issues, it's in 21st place in terms of manga volumes.Shinichi Kudo is one of the world's foremost detectives, and he's only in high school. His sharp analytical mind connects clues faster than anyone else, and local law-enforcement agencies frequently ask him for help.One day he happens to witness a crime committed by two men in black and is knocked out by them. The men force-feed him an experimental poison that is supposed to kill without leaving a trace, and flee the scene. However, Shinichi survives thanks to a one-in-a-million failure rate and discovers that the side effects of the drug have instead de-aged him into a six-year old body.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Assuming the alias of "Conan Edogawa" to conceal his survival (a combination of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Ranpo Edogawa, two famous mystery writers), Shinichi must now find and apprehend the two men who poisoned him while keeping his friends and loved ones in the dark, lest the men in black kill them all for knowing too much. The fact that he witnesses (and subsequently solves) about three murders a week in the process doesn't seem to slow him down.As with most prominent manga, it has a number of spin-offs, including Detective Conan Special, (mainly produced by Aoyama's assistant artists, and aimed at a slightly younger audience) Zero's Tea-Time, (focusing on Anti-Hero Furuya "Bourbon" Rei's day-job at the Poirot Cafe.) Wild Police Story, (A story about a group of police students, take places before the main series.) and Hanzawa-san the Criminal. (A comedy starring "Hanzawa-san" aka the shadow figure appear in place of the criminals before their identity were revealed.)Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The North American dub is titled Case Closed. Some believe Conan Properties International demanded this under the impression that the only Conan in existence is Conan the Barbarian (Conan O'Brien ended up paying them to use his current show's title). Others think a distributor demanded a unique trademark. However, as elaborated on the YMMV page, it was requested by the Japanese marketers.note Discotek Media uses "Detective Conan" for their release of Lupin III vs. Detective Conan: The Movie. The inside cover of Episode ONE special Blu-ray release also feature Detective Conan branding instead.There's also a Fandom-Specific Plot page.

Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_10dcbe05
comment
Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Kogoro and Eri, so much. Kogoro acts like a Lovable Sex Maniac, always chasing after pretty women and maintaining a crush on Idol Singer Okino Yoko, but never actually seems to take the act further than ogling or, at most, platonic dating. This behavior always takes a sudden turn for the worse whenever Eri is around, which causes Eri to get about ten degrees colder whenever Kogoro is nearby. On the other hand, they actually try to do nice things for each other once in a blue moon. (In one manga issue, Kogoro actually bought Eri a birthday present—except that he got the day wrong and accidentally gave her the wrong gift box, and some White Day chocolates (though Kogoro claimed he just didn't want to waste Yoko's present, Conan observed they were in a different wrapper than the ones Kogoro had been carrying around for her).) And sometimes Eri has been known to make Kogoro dinner (too bad she's a Lethal Chef). And both Kogoro and Eri have turned Papa Wolf and Mama Bear respectively when the other has been suspected of murder.

Inspector Lestrade
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_1300dc5c
comment
Inspector Lestrade: Most police officers, but specially Megure. The few notable exceptions include Misao Yamamura, the thoroughly incompetent inspector from the Gunma prefecture, and, on the other side of the spectrum, Kansuke Yamato and Taka'aki Morofushi, who somewhat get to hop into the Competence Zone and keep up with Conan. The case of the latter two are lampshaded by their Theme Naming; for example Morofushi's name refers to... Zhuge Liang. (Specifically, the characters of Zhuge Liang's courtesy name, Kongming, is read in Japanese as "Koumei"... which also happens to be an alternate reading of the characters in Morofushi's name.)

Hot Teacher

comment
Continuing from the above, Shiratori is not a Bad Boy; he's a bit of a jerk, but his jerkiness comes more from pride than from actual cruelty, so he's an honest and hardworking cop, a quality that he's had ever since he was a child... which helps swear by the trope when he wins the heart of local Hot Teacher Sumiko Kobayashi, who he helped when they were children - and the fact that made her fall for him was seeing him deliver a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to a guy who wanted to murder her, unlocking her memories of their childhood encounter.

Darker and Edgier
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: The Funimation dub of one episode made the killer's motivation considerably less sympathetic (which made his breakdown and confession considerably more creepy); in the original version, the killer wanted revenge on the man who let his wife die; in the dub, the two men conspired to kill the wife to collect on a life insurance policy and the killer turned on the accomplice to keep him from blabbing. The dub of another episode kept the motivation, but changed the killer's fate. In the dub, a desperate woman who had killed a man who'd been threatening her (and was planning to make good on his threats) is sentenced to life in prison; the original version had ended with her being able to rebuild her life. Also, some of the non serial movies are pretty dark themselves. Movie 17 had the cast finding a severed arm on a table.

Now That's Using Your Teeth!: in one case, it looks like an old man had committed suicide in his room; then Conan deduces that the victim had his hands bound behind his back, and then the rope that was looped around his neck was also threaded through his teeth so that if he called for help or his jaw gave out he would hang himself.

Relationship Upgrade
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_161f1ebf
comment
Subverted as the series progresses for Shinichi and Ran. Shinichi is quite acutely aware of his feelings for her (having in fact liked her before she liked him, a rare case for Shonen Manga) while living with Ran removed any possible lingering doubt he might have had on reciprocation. As time passes in-universe and Shinichi continues to remain missing, Ran drops almost all pretenses of 'just friends' behaviour and denial whenever he is mentioned or he calls. The subversion culminates in later chapters/episodes where Shinichi has finally confessed his feelings to Ran. The case spanning chapter 1000 to 1004 has Ran confess her feelings by kissing Shinichi's cheek. As of Chapter 1005, the two of them have agreed to officially be boyfriend/girlfriend.

Only Six Faces
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_18a84025
comment
Only Six Faces: Shinichi and Kaitou Kid are deliberately drawn alike, and have not-girlfriends, Ran and Aoko, who could be identical twins as well. Indeed in some non-canon movies this allows Kid to pass himself off as Shinichi whenever needed, without requiring a special disguise Where the series really runs headlong into this trope is in the many, many random people around the cast who drop dead of various murder schemes, and their friends and family who may or may not have done it. As of this edit there are more than 500 episodes in the anime and over 700 chapters in the manga... and the typical one or two episode case introduces a minimum of 4 to 6 one-shot characters. That is a lot of people to make up, so it's no wonder they all start to look the same. Even Conan has a "twin"—Kataoka Jun from The Kidnapper's Disappearing Getaway Car. More noticeable when he wears an outfit that is the same as Conan's except with yellow bow when he finally accepts Sachiko as his second mother. It's even a plot point in several cases, like one where Ms. Kobayashi gets mistaken for Sato several times in the police station and worries Shiratori is only dating her for the semblance between the two. (He isn't.). Also a plot point in the Lupin III vs. Detective Conan TV special, in which Ran is a Fake King lookalike of a European princess.

Artistic License – Biology: On the other hand, Detective Kogoro is knocked out 50 times over the course of the manga with a tranquilizer potent enough to knock out an elephant. In reality, the detective would be dead 50 times over by now, according to anesthesiologist Kappei Matsumoto. In the Hanzawa the Criminal spinoff, Professor Agasa recruits Hanzawa as test subject for his new tranquilizer formula, which was adjusted to compensate for Kogoro's built-up tolerance over the years. Hanzawa went out for three weeks.

Comic-Book Time
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_1989b0c
comment
Comic-Book Time: A more extreme case, as it frequently references the current time of year, with some holidays celebrated more than once, yet after over 20 years of chapters/episodes, Conan is still in the first grade. Granted, this is necessary to the whole point of the series; if Conan aged in real time, he would be older than he was before the de-aging. The characters are always shown to be using whatever technology was current when the chapters were written in published. Over the years, there have been noticable upgrades in electronics such as cell phones, portable music players, tablets, and computers. There have also been changes in relevant Japanese laws over the course of the series. For example, when the series first started, the statute of limitations for murder in Japan was only 15 years, which is mentioned in several episodes. Over the course of the series, this has changed to 25 years. More recently, Japan has eliminated the statute of limitations for murder, meaning that no more episodes can be based on finding the killer for an old murder just days before the limit runs out. A clear example can be seen during the time Conan is investigating Eisuke Hondou; the "Shadow of the Black Organization" arc combines two cases that take place at New Years and Setsuban respectively, while his disappearance in the next plot arc happens at the end of December. The latter arc keeps things vague by referring to an event that happened a few hundred episodes before Eisuke Hondou even appeared as "several months ago". On multiple occasions, specific years are referenced, however the relationship of those years to the current year are not consistent. The anime universe is ahead by two years because the manga came out in 1994 and the anime premiered in 1996— in episode 33 (a filler episode), it was 1978 "16 years ago"— hence it was 1994 when the episode happened, yet Conan writes a 1996 date in the special place mentioned by Dr Agasa in his treasure hunt. Chapter 303 states that the year 2000 has already passed. The series still maintains that only a few months have passed though: in the recent Aquarium Case (Manga chapters 882-884 / anime eps. 772/773) Ran reminisces that she went to the same aquarium with Shinichi just a few months ago. A huge problem with this 'only a few months have passed' statement is that even if one were to condense the series down to its plot-and-character-relevant episodes, ignore the upgrading technology, and dismiss the repeated holidays/changing seasons, it still amounts to well over a years worth of events. Another glaring example is the case that occured in chapters 972-974, which happened 10 years prior to the story, yet Yukiko was able to take pictures with a cellphone and send them on Yusaku's notebook and the latter was also able to read freshly reported news on the internet. If we pretend that the case happened in 1984, it's very inplausible from a realistic perspective. According to arc 301 (manga chapters 1047-1050, the first 217 cases, or chapters 1-752, all took place within the space of just six months.

The flighty and boy-crazy Sonoko Suzuki from ultimately swears by the trope as her long-distance boyfriend is the Adorkable Gentle Giant Makoto Kyougoku. Karate champion and deuteragonist Ran Mouri follows this trope too, as the guy she likes is the Amateur Sleuth Shinichi Kudou who is very protective of his loved ones and has a strong sense of justice (and unbeknownst to them, he's living with her... as her sort-of little brother Conan Edogawa). Local Action Girl Miwako Satou joined the group, by choosing Nice Guy Takagi over Princely Young Man Shiratori. Continuing from the above, Shiratori is not a Bad Boy; he's a bit of a jerk, but his jerkiness comes more from pride than from actual cruelty, so he's an honest and hardworking cop, a quality that he's had ever since he was a child... which helps swear by the trope when he wins the heart of local Hot Teacher Sumiko Kobayashi, who he helped when they were children - and the fact that made her fall for him was seeing him deliver a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to a guy who wanted to murder her, unlocking her memories of their childhood encounter.

Snooping Little Kid: The Detective Boys, with the exception of Conan and Haibara, best fit this category—they are not actually smart enough to be true Kid Detectives. But they sure do snoop around and get themselves into trouble a lot. Though recently, Mitsuhiko (Mitch to Americans) seems to have become better at reasoning and deductions - to the point of in one case coming up with the correct explanation early on while Conan didn't believe any of it till the end.

Poor Communication Kills
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_1c445e86
comment
Poor Communication Kills: Some specially tragic cases in the TV series and manga alike. Often, this could be seen as a form of Call It Karma, or possibly even true Karma, as the killer is invariably stricken with horror and grief upon learning that he killed an innocent person because of a misunderstanding. For example, we have had an injured American tourist recuperating in a Japanese household and falling in love with a young woman. Because of a mouth injury, at first he could only communicate by writing out Japanese phrases phonetically. As he was leaving, the young woman asked if he loved her, and he wrote down the word "shine", referring to his earlier words that he wanted a "shining bride", but which she quite naturally interpreted as "shi-ne," which happens to be Japanese for "go die", since the note was handed to her by her sisters who thought Robert was being mean. The woman committed suicide after he left, and when he came back he ended up murdering part of her family in revenge. What an Idiot!. In another episode, a woman named Masayo kills her younger sister Mina for stealing her boyfriend when in fact Mina had actually asked the boyfriend not to reveal that he had confessed to her because she didn't want to hurt Masayo's feelings. It certainly didn't help that there was a sort-of sisterly rivalry history before, since Mina kept imitating Masayo by copying her tastes to a degree that creeped the heck outta Masayo, but still... In "The Kappa Conundrum", eleven years after the death of a 10-year-old boy in a flooded river, the boy's former teacher kills the boy's father out of the belief he caused the boy's death by making him dress up as a kappa (Japanese water spirit) to lure tourists to his inn—but it turns out that dressing up had been the boy's own decision and the father simply covered it up out of respect for his memory. In a TV episode involving a male and female comedy duo who were also lovers, the woman arranges to murder the man after overhearing him making what seemed to be insensitive remarks to their manager about wanting to tell her to quit comedy, and no longer being her boyfriend. Afterward, she receives a note accompanied by a ring that he had arranged to have delivered, telling her that he wanted her to quit comedy for her health, and he was going to "quit being her boyfriend" by proposing to become her husband. In one tragic early case, the lead singer of a band was murdered. It turned out it was the manager of the band. They had been in a teen band together, and when he (the lead) started a new band, he asked her to be the manager. She was not very pretty, so before joining, she had plastic surgery done. Immediately after that, he started acting like a total jerk. The night she killed him, he had insulted her yet again, and that was the final straw. The real Tear Jerker came when it turned out he had loved her all along, but hated that she changed her face for him. It was because of that that he had teased and mocked her so. The worst part? That night, he was going to sing a song for her, telling her his true feelings. In the Cafe Poirot Mystery, the culpirt attempts to murder the victim over a misunderstanding concerning the former's love interest. It turns out the victim and the woman are half-siblings with different mothers who have to hide it as their father is a politician running for office. In fact, the victim was going to show a video to tell this information to said culpirt. Thankfully, the victim does survive and is willing to forgive the culpirt, though Heiji lampshades how they could have avoided the whole stabbing part in the first place had they properly talked about the issue. And in each of these cases there is always someone who had some important piece of information but chose to keep silent for some reason or other.

Childhood Friend Romance: Gosho Aoyama LOVES this trope. Right now, there's Shinichi/Ran, Heiji/Kazuha, Kogoro/Eri, Shiratori/Kobayashi (technically not friends, but they met when they were children and he held a torch for her for years), Detective Chiba/Naeko Miike and so on and so forth... And quite a few of the suspects/potential victims they run into along the way are childhood friends who become couples.

Green-Eyed Monster: Shinichi, Ran, Kazuha, Heiji, Satou, Ayumi, etc. have all shown jealousy when someone hit on/liked their respective love interest or their respective love interest showed 'interest' in someone else (though more often than not it was just a misunderstanding.) The Detective Boys are a veritable love parallelogram in the making: Mitsuhiko and Genta have crushes on Ayumi, Ayumi has a crush on Conan, Mitsuhiko also has a crush on Haibara and Haibara is believed to have a crush on Conan. In a rare vulnerable moment in episode 246, Haibara expresses jealousy of Conan's feelings for Ran, comparing herself to a cold shark and Ran to a friendly dolphin (they're on the beach at the time). Conan, naturally, completely fails to understand what she's talking about. She expresses similar jealousy of Ran in the 14th Non-Serial Movie, Lost Ship in the Sky. At the end of Lost Ship in the Sky, Conan is left wondering what it was Kaitou did to Ran that he (Shinichi) wouldn't have done that gave away that Kaitou really wasn't Shinichi after all. (He thinks it's kissing her—but it was actually groping her bottom while he kissed her.) Almost every unmarried man in Megure's department has a crush on Officer Satou, to the point of forming a "defense organization" to try to torpedo the budding romance between her and Takagi (whom they resent). (Shiratori was the leader of this organization until he met Kobayashi-sensei and realized his affections had been misplaced.) Because Satou is Oblivious to Love, she doesn't notice any of this…and her mischievous co-worker Yumi shamelessly takes advantage of this blind spot to pull pranks on those jealous men. (Such as the time she innocently gave Satou a ring to wear…)

Back Blocking: "Illustrated Murder". A police officer's back fills the screen some while he was preparing to tie fishing line around an intercom to copy the murderer's trick. He moves aside to reveal it in place. In the movie The Fourteenth Target, While Conan saw someone on a motorcycle with a crossbow in a crack in Dr. Agasa's house, Dr. Agasa soon enters the screen blocking him and Conan's reflection. Episode 488 "The Devil of the TV Station", happens 2 or 3 times with Professor Agasa while Conan is using him to solve the case. The camera starts at the back of Agasa's head, then pans down to Conan behind him.

Papa Wolf: If a case has threatened Ran or Conan, Kogoro becomes far more competent, and is not afraid to demonstrate his black belt in Judo. Similarly, on the occasion where children are threatened, Kogoro also becomes more competent. Some of the motives for the Anti Villains are due to someone being responsible for the death of their child.

Master of Delusion: Ran almost figured it out in the first volume, with many other close calls. Hundreds of chapters later and she's still clueless. Though, to be fair, every time Ran has figured out that Conan is Shinichi, Conan has had help from others in on the secret (as well as the otherwise-realistic universe's natural Weirdness Censor—who would believe that a high-schooler could de-age ten years given any even vaguely plausible alternative?) to convince her she was imagining things. Ran nearly got it right the first time, though... For that matter, she had a similar theory the second or third time time, too ("I thought you needed to hide and had Dr. Agasa create some kind of shrinking drug.") prompting Conan to remark to the audience about how close she got.

It Only Works Once: Conan's tranquilizer-needle wristwatch only has one shot, which means Conan has to save it until he really needs it. Sometimes Conan uses the watch early in the mystery (or, less frequently, misses his shot or the watch gets damaged) only to discover that the next time he needs to use it he's already shot his one bolt (and he must then work by the slower method of dropping hints or else find some other way to knock Kogoro out).

Framing the Guilty Party: In one episode, the killer is a woman named Tina. Her boyfriend found the crime scene and saw that the victim wrote "Tina" in his own blood as he died, so he changed the message to "Ringo," the name of another suspect. Then Ringo found the crime scene and changed the message again to a phrase that happened to indirectly point right back to... well, you know. Note that this example is taken from the English version; the original Japanese version does the equivalent with kanji characters that are changed by adding strokes (but this was obviously Lost in Translation). Also subverted on at least one occasion where the killer tried to plant evidence to suggest she was framed. It didn't work because Conan found much more conclusive evidence pointing to her.

Chekhov's Gun
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_22cf536c
comment
The Chekhov's Gun from episode 12—The Syndicate killing their mook—was removed in the anime, by changing it to generic-evil-guy-seriously-hurting-but-not-killing-a mook. However, Aoyama fired the gun by making the murder victim a Red Herring Shirt and the dead older sister of a new character. Result? Continuity Porn was applied by killing her again, this time by The Syndicate, in a filler 116 episodes later. A lampshade was hung by Ran asking Conan if they had seen that character any time before. This arc is the Billion Yen Heist. It was pertinent because Akemi Miyano had to die under the organization's hands to bring her little sister Shiho aka Ai in, because she is Ai's dead elder sister. This also resulted in the series running in a very restricted expanded plot so as to prevent Continuity Snarl by preventing any of the writer's Chekhov's Guns to be removed.

No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: In the thirteenth movie, The Raven Chaser, Conan has the crap beat out of him at the ending by Irish, gets shot at multiple times, and has no real way of fighting back since Agasa's inventions have been put out of commission by this point. To make matters worse, Ran also loses the upperhand against Irish after trying to protect the injured Conan and even gets slammed into a wall. It's hard not to cringe at these two scenes. Heck, the first case Conan runs into, he gets the everloving crap beaten out of him by the suspect, prompting him to find ways to compensate for his smaller size. (Enter the magical shoes.)

Failure Is the Only Option: If Conan's identity is revealed, Kogoro and Ran (among others) will be targeted and likely killed by the organization that shrunk him. Likewise, if Conan is ever permanently restored to his adult identity, there will no longer be a "Detective Conan" for the show to be about. Ironically, played in Conan's favor for the same reasons whenever it comes to his identity and the Black Organization. Vermouth excluded, any Black Org. member who discovers his or Haibara's identities is instantly given an appointment with The Plot Reaper scheduled at "just before you get to tell Gin".

Elephant in the Living Room: Conan's increasingly noticeable failure to act as a normal little boy arouses suspicions from just about everyone in the cast not privy to his secret, yet nobody really thinks of just sitting the kid down and asking him just how on earth does he knows so much, rather preferring to harbor vague suspicions forever. Takagi does get the chance to ask Conan during one of the most famous cases of the series, but Conan replies that he'll tell him in the afterlife. Somehow, Takagi forgets all about it. Usually Conan catches their weird looks and claims that he learned it on TV. This is lampshaded by Kogoro in chapter 716, after Conan gives his Condensed History of the Rooster Festival spanning three very wordy panels: "And I suppose all of that was on TV, huh?"

Unique Pilot Title Sequence: The anime's proper title sequence wasn't used until the second episode (since it's that episode that establishes the general setup of the show and "introduces" Conan). The first episode has the theme song and credits being played while the audience witnesses the first criminal in the series commit murder; it even has Shinichi, instead of Conan, read the episode title aloud.

Oblivious to Love
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_2848e7d2
comment
Almost every unmarried man in Megure's department has a crush on Officer Satou, to the point of forming a "defense organization" to try to torpedo the budding romance between her and Takagi (whom they resent). (Shiratori was the leader of this organization until he met Kobayashi-sensei and realized his affections had been misplaced.) Because Satou is Oblivious to Love, she doesn't notice any of this…and her mischievous co-worker Yumi shamelessly takes advantage of this blind spot to pull pranks on those jealous men. (Such as the time she innocently gave Satou a ring to wear…)

Disappeared Dad
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_28cd01ca
comment
Also a very important plot point in the Naniwa Murder case: Yusuke Sakata's huge physical resemblance to his Disappeared Dad Inaba makes a Serial Killer blurt out the truth about Inaba's strange death 20 years ago, allowing Yusuke to start a serial murder spree to punish whoever had a hand on it. And on the other hand, seeing a picture of Inaba is what allows Heiji and then Conan to unmask Yusuke as the Sympathetic Murderer.

Bilingual Bonus: In the Chinatown Deja Vu in the Rain arc (anime episodes 284-285/manga volume 34), the name of the Chinese restaurant which Kogorou, Ran and Conan visited literally means "Conan Doyle Block" in Chinese. In another case, it goes even one step further: the clue to the culprit is the word 'elf' which everyone assumes to be English, meaning the mischievous imp type. In the end it turns out the word really used was the German word elf, meaning eleven, pointing at a soccer-playing person

 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_2b5ea43c

Bland-Name Product: Whenever a recognizable product logo is shown, it invariably has some letters changed around, such as the commonly witnessed WcDonald's (properly called Wonder Burger). The most commonly used one, using Nichiuri for any media provided, is the least obvious for viewers outside of Japan—it's a combination of Nippon TV of Tokyo and Yomiuri TV of Osaka. Both a Danny's Restaurant and a Donny's Restaurant can be found in Beika City. There's a major video game publisher called Mantendo. There's also a car company called Yotsubishi, which symbol is four diamonds (Mitsubishi means "three diamonds" and yotsu means four). If a smartphone shows up, expected it to be the Ony Xperian.

Lotsa People Try to Dun It: One case plays out like this when an actor is found dead at the theater where he worked. The three other actors each confess to killing him by smashing a vase over his head, with forensics finding skin particles from the victim on each of the three vases. However, the autopsy revealed the head wounds were not serious enough to kill him. His real cause of death was heart failure due to his wife swapping his heart medication with stomach medication.

Undead Tax Exemption: Conan Edogawa and Ai Haibara not only have assumed names, but they can even use those identities to attend public schools and, given the show's nature, haven't even have their legal identities suspected by the police officers they meet oh-so-frequently... But subverted in that Conan's lack of a true identity and, thus, a passport is brought up as a plot device whenever the story requires him to travel to another country (as in the Lupin III crossover special and a manga story involving a trip to London).

Suicide, Not Murder: The despondent ex-boyfriend of Yoko Okino commits suicide to cast suspicion on said singer, but Conan clears her. Another case alluded to was when the ex-CEO of a company committed suicide and tried to frame his former business partner only to be found out by Conan's father. Years later, his son tried the opposite and was foiled by Conan himself.

Gratuitous English
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_2e6a41e0
comment
Gratuitous English: This series has its share of Caucasian FBI/CIA agents and American members of The Syndicate, yet when they speak English, they speak Engrish. In fact, Heiji Hattori speaks far better English than any supposedly-american character in the show (save for a few noteworthy exceptions who do speak Surprisingly Good English). Also, the famous "Need Not To Know" in the fourth Non-Serial Movie. "A secret makes a woman woman." (Granted when Vermouth says it it sounds more like "ooman", but I digress.) In one episode, Conan is able to tell the difference between a British accent and a Texan accent in spoken English—which is really quite impressive when you consider that the words were actually spoken with a "read phonetically by a Japanese actor" accent. Engrish pronunciation was the key to figuring out the culprit of a case during the Clash of Red and Black arc. "Shiranpuri" = "Sit down please"? ZARD, we love you and all and although it still might be too soon to mention this after your death, "Glorious Mind" has some of the strangest Engrish ever.

That One Case
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_2ea2680a
comment
That One Case: Since a large amount of the characters are policemen or detectives, several of them have this: Kogoro's That One Case in the Non-Serial Movie "The Fourteenth Target" ended with a Shoot the Hostage, with the hostage being his wife; he quit the police and separated from his wife soon after this. The movie then circles around the suspect supposedly taking revenge for this incident. Sato has two That One Cases, both of them "inherited": in one, her father perished chasing the suspect from a bank robbery, and in another, she lost her former partner to a serial Mad Bomber (who himself had an earlier That One Case that lost his prior partner). Subverted with Megure's That One Case, where a serial hit-and-run driver critically injured both himself and the girl who offered herself up as bait—turns out that was how he met his wife and he's embarrassed to tell the tale. Conan himself considers the death of Ai's sister and his inability to stop the murderer of the Moonlight Sonata from committing suicide his greatest failures. Matsumoto has one where not only his partner Morimura was murdered, but he was given his iconic scar over his eye.

Accidental Pervert: Because Conan is believed to be a small child, he's bathed with Ran on a few occasions. Ran herself played the role of accidental pervert on a case when she managed to see all of the male members of a drama club naked. This causes the murderer to believe that she saw an important clue to his identity and target her.

It's surprisingly averted: Yoshifusa is actually Dickson Tanaka, a man who is impersonating the deceased Yoshifusa and is Carlos's bodyguard, since the supposed Scary Black Man was a harmless Gentle Giant - and Yoshifusa's son with a black Brazilian woman, whom Dickson swore to protect from his friend's Big, Screwed-Up Family.

Strange Minds Think Alike

comment
Strange Minds Think Alike: At the end of the fourth movie, Captured in Her Eyes, Conan is just a little disgusted with himself to learn that he proclaimed his love for Ran the same way Ran's father did to her mother. This actually seems to be the reason why Kogoro and Eri managed to get married despite being very different in many aspects. It's revealed that during childhood, despite arguing about putting sauce or shoyu on eggs, they ate in the same order at the same time. She also thought gray was a warm color, and it's implied she may not be aware Kogoro thought the same. They also both wore the outfits they wore on their first date on the anniversary of said date, with both doing it independently of each other.

Fantasy-Forbidding Father: : The "Luxury Liner Serial Murder Case" has a fantasy-forbidding grandfather as the first victim; Gozo Hatamoto is an all-around jerk, but especially belittles his grandson for wanting to be an artist and is even shown smashing one of Ichiro's works in a flashback. Naturally, Ichiro is the killer, a spur-of-the-moment act when he couldn't take the man's abuse anymore, both because of Gozo's opinion of his work and because he wouldn't allow Ichiro to marry his cousin Natsue, Gozo's favorite relative and only heir, and had in fact, immediately after this refusal, granted another man permission to marry Natsue; the wedding had occurred just days before Gozo's murder.

Previously On…
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_313d7228
comment
Previously On…: In multi-part episodes, the couple of minutes before the title card for episodes after the first one is used for showing what happened in previous episodes. This is often redundant because Conan will provide his own recap in Inner Monologue every so often. (In one episode, "The Alibi of the Black Dress", Conan recapped twice in the first episode (including a fairly lengthy one right before the end) and again in part two, in addition to the "Previously On…" segment!) This may be done as a time-filling method when a manga-based case is too long for one part but not long enough for two. But the manga itself is also guilty of this. Since there's no way to know whether the person reading the current issue missed the previous one(s), each segment of a multi-part case after the first will usually feature exposition of the important plot points from earlier issues via somewhat unrealistically-detailed dialogue. In episode 345, an especially important plot episode, there is a fifteen-minute recap covering parts of previous episodes that are relevant to the storyline. Actually, blame it on the fansubbers; they needed that recap since those episodes hadn't been done yet. There was no such recap on TV or on DVD (as can be seen by the more recent fansub of the same episode).

Everyone Is a Suspect: Pretty much every case, although sometimes you can narrow it down based upon a few hints and the obvious. (The main characters never did it.) During the "Billionaire Birthday Blues" case, you can spot that one person isn't shown drinking coffee, other than Conan. They actually give a closeup of everyone's face, but the killer actually deliberately avoids holding the coffee up to his mouth.

Dies Wide Open: Detective Conan basically ABUSES this trope for most of the manga. The anime followed the manga's example up to season 7 (specifically, The Revival of the Dying Message) then switched to animate the victim's eyes closed instead. Moral Guardians and Executive Meddling may have played a part here. It's in fact a clue in the Princess and Dragon Palace Arc. The first victim, Taira, was laid down peacefully with her eyes properly closed while the second victim was brutally murdered which revealed that the murderer knew that Taira was Mistress Miyako Kaneshiro, who disappeared six years before the story.

Kansai Regional Accent
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_33407b11
comment
Kansai Regional Accent: Heiji Hattori's usage is most noted by characters, also Maria from episode 460. Also, the Black Organization agent Tequila is also mentioned to have spoken in Kansai-ben. The Kansai dialect is sometimes used as a source of humor. In the "Holmes Freak Murder Case," when Conan imitates Heiji's voice to solve the murder, he notably has trouble speaking in the unfamiliar dialect (and Heiji, who wakes up partway through, ribs him about it later on). But in one of the OAVs, which involves a speaker of the Tokyo dialect whose voice is otherwise identical to Heiji's, Heiji is shown to be unable to speak a simple phrase in Tokyo-ben. Kansai-Ben is also used to smoke out a murderer. In the Ama-chan case, after Conan outs the culprit, he starts talking in an exaggerated Kansai accent so the murderer will blow his top and admit he's from Osaka.

Lethal Chef: The direct reason for Kogoro and Eri's separation is the latter's cooking was too awful ( aside of him once having to shoot her to save her from death).

Sato has two That One Cases, both of them "inherited": in one, her father perished chasing the suspect from a bank robbery, and in another, she lost her former partner to a serial Mad Bomber (who himself had an earlier That One Case that lost his prior partner).

Out of Character: The Non-Serial Movie Phantom of Baker Street is accused of doing this to Conan, specifically: Was he a bit too calm in response to Ran killing herself in-game by jumping off with Jack the Ripper? Shouldn't he stop Hiroki from committing his second suicide? (For background info for this, also read the relevant entry in Driven to Suicide.)

Embarrassing Old Photo: In one episode, an old college professor is killed by one of his former students over two of these. The student had plastic surgery done after graduating and became a fashion model, and the professor wanted to leak two old pre-plastic surgery photos of him to tabloids, including a photo of the student dressed in drag.

Magical Security Cam: A particular episode of Detective Conan when a murder scene recorded on camera was shown even with flashing backgrounds. Subverted in this incidence, as the killer deliberately place the cam to let the police see what happened in the way he wanted to be. Subverted in the Holmes Freak case, where the security cameras placed everywhere in a vacation manor are revealed to be nonfunctional dummies.

Batman Gambit
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_38d02d44
comment
Batman Gambit Vermouth and Conan both rely on Haibara's Martyr Without a Cause tendencies during the Mystery Train arc to enable their plans to respectively kill and protect her, as they expect her to go somewhere quiet, age up with a temporary antidote, and let herself be killed to protect Agasa and the kids. This is also why Conan kept Ai Locked Out of the Loop for his plan until it was time to bring her in. Okiya Subaru being more than he seems was a long-running thread. Simply put, he is Akai Shuuichi. Starting from the beginning can already be confusing... the FBI had Rena Mizunashi/Kir under surveillance in the hospital, but the Black Organization wanted to bust her out and bring her back into their folds. Rena made a plan with Shuuichi and Conan for her to return to the organization has a double-double-agent (having originally infiltrated as a CIA undercover agent), under the condition that her original CIA-goal took higher importance than their goal. She rejoins and Gin demands that Kir meet up with Shuuichi and kill him. She does by shooting him in the head, Akai Shuuichi is pronounced officially dead, and Okiya Subaru entered the scene. Hundreds of chapters later, Akai Shuuichi turns out to be alive — Conan had a plan with Shuuichi that started before Reina was returned to the organization. The organization had a henchman checking hospitals for Rena's presence, and Conan made up an excuse to get the henchman to touch his cellphone, who used his right hand for this. At one point, Shuuichi touches Conan's phone with his right hand as well, which Jodie later uses to determine fingerprints found of the corpse believed to be Shuuichi. The plan was that Shuuichi put glue on his fingertips to prevent his prints from touching anything, so that he can fake his death, which allows Rena to keep staying in the organization without suspicion, and takes a long-standing target off of Shuuichi's back. This explains Shuuichi's words when Rena met up with him to kill him. Shuuichi said, "Who would have thought it would come to this"... meaning how impressed he is that Conan figured out the resulting steps of the organzation, including that Vermouth (and Bourbon) would take turns apperaing as 'Scar Akai Shuuichi' to see if Akai Shuuichi really was dead, and believing it to be true based on the FBI agents' reactions. And Conan even went further, making sure that Akai Shuuichi appears alive at a time when Amuro/Bourbon is checking if Okiya Subaru is Akai Shuuichi disguised. Sheesh!

Actor Allusion
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_392372f9
comment
Actor Allusion: When Conan runs into Two-Mix, everyone notices that he sounds like Minami Takayama (she plays his voice). Minami Takayama voiced herself apart from Conan in that episode. Although the joke isn't easy to get if you don't know about Japanese voice actresses and J-Pop, many foreign dubs made the actress voicing Conan also voice Takayama. The only exceptions are the Latin American dub, since both Conan and Takayama are dubbed by different voice actresses, and the Filipino dub, where Conan was voiced by the same male voice actor for Shinichi, ruining the gag. Sayuri Tokomae is voiced by Kujira. Visual Pun anyone?

Time Marches On
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_397569de
comment
Time Marches On: Because Conan's first few years of airing span the ramp-up of Japanese adoption of the cellphone (keitai), it is interesting to watch the evolution of its use in the series. (All the more so since the series is "supposed" to take place over the course of a few months thanks to Comic-Book Time. At one point nine or ten years into the series's run, Kogoro reflected on how payphones had all but disappeared over the past five years in favor of cell phones—even though they were all over the place in early episodes!) Early episodes: Doctor Agasa gives Conan a miniaturized cellphone "disguised" as an oversized earring with a hands-free cable. (Why a male primary-school student should need an oversized earring is never adequately explained, though it does come in handy for lending to Ran.) Since Conan can broadcast from his voice-changing necktie directly to that phone, at one point he uses it to relay deductions in a case via Ran. Another of Agasa's "inventions," only seen once, is a cellular fax machine and phone concealed in a bento box. The food in it is also real. (This nearly gets Conan into trouble with Ran when he uses it to make a Shinichi-call in a client's apartment and Ran hears her shouting echoed from the phone in another room.) Relatively few characters have cell phones, and they are the cordless-phone-handset-sized models from the mid-90s with few features and no email capability. When victims have cell phones, last-number-redial is often used as an important clue. In one case, a murder victim dials a 3-letter code that turns out to be the abbreviation for an airport whose name was shared by her murderer. Characters mostly use payphones (and Conan often gets odd looks from bystanders as he talks through his bow tie in Shinichi's voice in payphone calls to Ran). One episode involves the Detective Boys using a shortwave radio to pick up cell/cordless phone calls between a kidnapper and a worried father, and using clues from the conversation to track down the kidnapper and rescue the victim. Later episodes: Conan gets an ordinary flip/camera phone in the late 300s to early 400s, and the earring-phone is by and large not seen again. Also, phones get smaller and add digital displays. Emails through cell phones start to show up as more important clues. In one case, a phonecam picture of Ran in a bikini Sonoko sends to "Shinichi" also contains an important clue. In another, the internal clock on Kogoro's cell phone is used to provide and then disprove an alibi (it was reset by the bartender). In another, a mailed phone-camera shot of a murder victim is used to falsify the time of death. Ran gets suspicious when she sends a phone-mail to Shinichi and it immediately buzzes on Conan's phone. Conan tricks her by borrowing Agasa's identical phone and swapping it with his own. The same episode has Conan realize that a famous romance author is still writing the old "two lovers separated by a column, each thinking he was Stood Up by the other" type of Poor Communication Kills story, which in the modern age isn't possible unless one or both wasn't carrying a cell phone. This turns out to be because the stories are actually ghost-written by the "writer's" brother, a murder suspect who has been hiding in the house's attic for twelve years and hence has not had experience with cell phones. In one episode, Conan startles Ran and Sonoko by pulling up TV listings via his phone's web browser. One episode has a murder victim leave a "dying message" via cell phone by pressing the "Memo" button to record the incoming call from his murderer gloating over him as he dangled from the window outside his apartment. (Most American cell phones do not have this feature.) In one confrontation with the Black Organization, Conan overhears the touch tones as Vermouth emails her boss. They correspond to notes from a Japanese folk song. For a while afterward, whenever he sees someone using a cell phone particularly when calling numbers in Tottori, whose area code has the same notes he gets a flashback of Vermouth. In manga volume #770, Conan is shown to carry two identical cell phones◊, and has Shinichi "call him" on one for a deduction while doing the voice through the other. (Of course, the main reason he carries two is to be able to answer the phone as either Shinichi or Conan, depending on who gets called.) Cell phones are also frequently used as remote detonators for bombs. ("Trembling Metropolitan Police Headquarters: 12 Million Hostages"; the non-serial movies Captured in Her Eyes and Countdown to Heaven) As of the 700s/800s' manga cases, most new phones shown are smartphones. (Vermouth, Ai, Mitsuhiko...) A recent case (Everyone Saw, episodes 710-711) has used digital tablets as part of the murderer's trick. This become especially hilarious in the Aquarium Murder Case (882-884), where smartphones are central to both the case and the Shinichi-Ran interactions. The kicker? This case is supposed to be a prequel to the whole series, taking place before all those chapters featuring landlines and payphones.

Something Completely Different
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_3b4773de
comment
Something Completely Different: Chapter 594 is a rare case of this for the manga. As a New Year's special, it not only features no murders whatsoever, but is a done-in-one story featuring Kogoro as the main character (complete with Private Eye Monologue!); the bulk of the plot consists of Kogoro trying to avoid the Detective Boys so that he won't have to give them their New Year's money envelopes. Another example comes in Chapter 699. Once again, it's a done-in-one with no murders—the case revolves around the Detective Boys deciphering and ultimately stopping a man's attempt to commit suicide. In episode 225, in what could only happen in an anime original episode, Mitsuhiko ends up solving the case while Conan is baffled by how careless the culprit is, as compared to the show's standard murderers, who cover their tracks with overly careful tricks and leave only enough evidence for someone at Shinichi's level of deduction skill to solve it. Conan overestimates everything the culprit does (which allows Mitsuhiko to follow the more obvious clues) and scolds the criminal at the end for overestimating children and leaving such an easy trail to follow.

Dated History: In the 3rd Non-Serial Movie The Last Wizard of the Century (released in 1999), it was revealed that Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia survived the Russian Revolution and escaped to and settled in Japan with the help of a Japanese craftsman. This revelation, while plausible (though far-fetched) in 1999, is no longer historically possible today as her missing remains were found in Russia in 2007 and confirmed in 2009.

Sherlock Scan: Played straight in the first episode by Shinichi just for amusement and in the second episode to convince Agasa Conan is really Shinichi, though later on he keeps it to himself as Conan. Used sparingly when he needs and can afford to make a suspect uncomfortable. (Often, Conan will take "shortcuts" in his deductions though — spin them out longer just to impress the one he's scanning, e.g., spinning out a series of deductions to explain why someone is a tennis fan when he actually noticed a tennis brochure sticking out of his pocket. Ironically, or perhaps intentionally, this sort of inductive reasoning—working backward from a conclusion to get facts rather than work forward from facts to get a conclusion—is what Conan Doyle actually used to invent Holmes's original deductive Sherlock scans.) Used in case involving a trip to London, when Conan needed to convince a boy that Conan was "Sherlock Holmes's apprentice" so he would hand over a threatening letter for Conan to investigate. Subverted in the OAV Magic File 4, in which a number of coincidences lead Conan and Hattori to draw a completely wrong conclusion.

Costume Porn: In-universe case: the "Kimono Goddess" filler case happens in an inn that possesses LOTS of beautiful and very pricey female kimonos (which make Ran squeal in amazement) and is near the shrine of the aforementioned Goddess. The Asshole victims, Asuka and Ema, appear dead in carefully-arranged crime scenes that involve such kimonos: this is because they caused the death of a girl who was a big devotée of the Kimono Goddess. Even more so, there's a backstory to the myth of the Goddess, and it also brings up the trope. According to it, a Naïve Everygirl named Koharu received a trunk of beautiful kimonos as thanks from a daimyo whose life she saved. The jealous daughters of the village leader accused her of theft to get them, and poor Koharu was executed. That same night, the two girls were found dead — also in carefully-arranged scenes involving these kimonos, which were supposedly caused by Koharu's soul which had become a vengeful spirit. To appease her, she was from then on referred to as the Kimono Goddess. Then there's a case that involved an Elegant Gothic Lolita girl. the anime version gives us a brief tour through her amazing EGL wardrobe. Too bad she's the victim of the case

The climactic confrontation with Vermouth is also one of these: Vermouth, posing as Dr. Araide, attempted to kidnap Ai—but Ai was under the protection of Jodie, who was trying to lead Vermouth in a trap set by an FBI agent. Except Vermouth figured this out and dismissed the agents while disguised as Jodie and set off her own trap—and this is when Conan dramatically reveals that he's been disguising himself as Ai (while Heiji, elsewhere, pretended to show up as Shinichi). Then Ai herself shows up, intending to turn herself in to the organization, which causes Vermouth to knock Conan out with his own needle. Just as Vermouth is about to shoot Jodie, Ran, who was hiding in the trunk of the car because she saw Jodie's pictures of her friends in the bathroom and assumed that Jodie was spying on the school, jumps out to protect Ai from both Vermouth and the sniper. When Shuichi Akai shows up to take out the sniper and disables Vermouth, Vermouth manages to get away by taking Conan hostage and blowing up the other car. Except Conan had anticipated Vermouth's get away (or at least was Crazy-Prepared) and hooked himself up to a wire to capture the cell phone number Vermouth called. But Vermouth got the last laugh, as she knocked them both out with sleeping gas, then forced herself awake and slipped into the night, but not before destroying Conan's equipment. Phew.

Mostly averted (much to the consternation of many fans), as the series' formula was set down almost immediately after the Origins Episode, and Aoyama rarely budges from it. Early-manga Ran, however, is noticeably more Hot-Blooded and petty than her later All-Loving Hero characterization; in the Art Museum Murder Case, Conan/Shinichi implies she regularly busts out karate moves on furniture when she doesn't get her way.

It turns out that not only he liked her better when she was just a sweet Girl Next Door, but the woman had specifically gotten plastic surgery to please him, which he could never forgive her and himself for. And she didn't even get a hint when he made her sing Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Conan categorized this as Poor Communication Kills.

And so on and so forth. (All of these examples come from the Non-Serial Movies, which tend to be more action-oriented than the series and are not necessarily considered canonical, so it's understandable that they might play a little more fast and loose with Conan's backstory.)

Marilyn Maneuver: In "Roller Coaster Murder Case", the first case of the series. There's a flashback moment of Hitomi as Shinichi explains how he can tell she's a gymnast. There was a wind lift of her skirt, revealing frilly, white panties with a bow on the front and he noticed there was a bruise on each of her thighs, which typically is the result of physics of the sport. Police officer Naeko Miike near the end of "Co-Investigating with a First Love". A wind gust nearly lifts her skirt to reveal more than intended, but she manages to catch it before her hat is blown off her head. Ran in "The Cornered Famous Detective! Two Big Murder Cases" (a.k.a. "Jimmy Kudo Revealed"). One of the suspected magicians, Mako Miyoshi, performs a magic trick that involves doves flying out from under Ran's skirt. Conan comments that her panties are white.

Date Peepers: Satou and Takagi have a date in an Amusement Park, with half the police force trying to make it fail without being seen. They go so far as to send Agasa and the Detective Boys there (as "thanks for helping solve so many cases"), then call Agasa away in order to saddle Satou and Takagi with the kids. If he doesn't manage to tag along with Ran whenever she's out on a date, then you can bet that Conan will be doing this.

There are in fact a few very rare examples - two early (Relatively speaking) episodes were about a kidnapping and a slashed flag. Another episode involved Michiru solving a scam mystery. In general, even the episodes where a murder does not happen, it will either be attempted outright or be somehow related. (Such as another early episode wherein one of the main characters mistook two actors for murderers when they were going to a play that was about murder.)

Loose Canon: Detective Conan has an ongoing spinoff manga series called Detective Conan Special in a children manga magazine. While it agrees with most canon elements of the main series, it's not drawn by the original mangaka (and hence has some Off-Model issues) and The Syndicate's appearances are non-canon. Its lack of firm link with the canon can be demonstrated because despite being a long runner itself (45 volumes as of April 2020), only two chapters were adapted into episodes for the anime series. This also applied to Zero's Tea Time and Wild Police Story spin-offs.

And when it comes to apprehending correctly-identified criminals or defending innocents, he becomes scarily competent. Especially if said criminals have pissed him off personally or threatened Conan and Ran, or if children are at stake. His black belt in judo isn't just for decoration, and it is revealed in the second non-serial movie The Fourteenth Target that he is an excellent pistol marksman as well.

In the backstory, we have Shuichi Akai and Akemi Miyano. He began dating her at first to strengthen his position in the Black Organization but fell in love for real with her, yet when he was found out and he told her to come with him, she couldn't leave because she didn't want to abandon her little sister Shiho/Ai. Few time later, she was murdered.

Xanatos Speed Chess: The various highschool detectives are very good at this, though it usually only shows up in special, plot-relevant episodes. One good example is the Halloween party murder two hour special (ep 345). For that matter, Kaitou Kid excels here as well, and it shows up anytime one of the tantei is pitted against him. Clash of Red and Black was a long Battle of Wits between the FBI and Black Organization, each side constantly making brilliant moves to counter the other.

Adult Fear
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_46118dc5
comment
Adult Fear: There are several things involving Conan or other children being in danger. Conan has been held at gunpoint or knifepoint by a murderer or taken hostage several times, and more than once said murderer would have no problem silencing Conan or another child for being witnesses. Many cases have children as either victims of murder/injury/etc., or as witnesses of murder/injury/etc.. In the first case types, someone whom they loved will kill to attempt to kill the Asshole Victims as punishment; in the second ones, the now grown-up victims will exact revenge themselves. The 6th movie Phantom of Baker Street has the computer Noah's Ark taking fifty children participating in a virtual game system as hostages (where at least one child out of the fifty needs to Win to Exit or else, all of them die in real life) while forcing parents to watch as the capsule containing their child turns grey, signalling a "game over" for that child. The 11th movie Jolly Roger in the Deep Azure has Ran and Sonoko got taken hostages by two treasure hunters/wanted criminals, who used them not only as baits for the sharks living near the underwater ruins they're diving into, but also to test out the traps laid in the ruins themselves when they got there as well. Kogoro understandably has a massive Freak Out when he learns of this, but he cannot do anything except to wait and pray as the weather is too bad to send a ship out. The 15th movie Quarter of Silence has Conan being Buried Alive under an avalanche and everyone rushing to find him before he runs out of air. And said movie has the attempts on the life of an amnesiac fifteen-year-old boy as one of the biggest plot points. Also there's the fourth movie, Captured In Her Eyes, where Ran, the one who always takes care of Conan and Kogoro, is struck with Trauma-Induced Amnesia and can barely handle herself. Seeing someone who has always been there for you need help desperately, but you can barely do anything for them... and that's all before she got targeted by the culprit as she saw his face before she got amnesia, ack. There's the Magician's Suicide Case (episode 96/chapter 131-134). The victim's six-year-old daughter, whom the killer sort-of used to make the victim surrender to him so they could kill him? The little girl has disappeared. And the murderer is the one who has her. It's a BIG relief when said killer brings her back unharmed. The premise of the series in general is this. You're in a place that should be very public and friendly, only to be attacked and nearly killed. You cheerfully go off somewhere alone and promise to meet your best friend later, only to all but vanish for who-knows-how-long. Against all odds you manage to survive something that should have been fatal, only to find that you can't go back to your old life. Instead, you have to watch as your friends cry and wonder where you are, while you can't say a thing to them. Because if you do, they will be targeted by the same evil group that did this shit to you.

Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: The exposition sequence at the beginning of the movies always end with Conan pointing at the camera to deliver his ultimatum. There is only one truth! Also, the detectives often point dramatically at the suspect when making their accusation. (Especially Mouri Kogoro, who is usually wrong.)

Latex Perfection: KID seems to have brought this down where he can fool Shinichi that he is Ran, or vice versa. This is scary (and at the same time, hilarious, seeing as Shinichi has known Ran for years. Yukiko (a prize-winning actress) and Vermouth also manage to do this. Enough that throughout the series the only way muggles can make sure someone was not impersonated is by literally pinching their faces. Subverted in the 8th Non-Serial Movie, Magician of the Silver Sky, and the 14th, Lost Ship in the Sky, as well as the OAV "Kid in Trap Island". A number of times, Kaitou takes advantage of his close physical resemblance to Shinichi to disguise himself without a mask, so he passes the pinch test.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Kogoro may appear to be an egotistical jerk, he does have his moments where he shows that he does care about Ran and Conan, and also shows quite the moral restrains towards killers and some co-workers. Shinichi himself, who can be really high-and-mighty and pushy as well as snarky, but his heart is in the right place. Shiratori is very full of himself, rather snobbish at times and comes off very strongly between Satou and Takagi, but he holds a high respect for the law, does want to help and protect people, and the idea of actually harming Takagi doesn't seem to cross his mind. And he sincerely loves and care for Kobayashi, his "girl of destiny".

Would Hurt a Child: More than one case had children being hurt or even killed. Conan himself isn't immune. Shortly after he was de-aged, Conan was beaten up by the suspect, prompting him to later find ways to compensate for his smaller size. In the 13th movie The Raven Chaser, Irish not only beats up Conan badly but also hurts Ran when she protects Conan.

In "Trembling Metropolitan Police Headquarters: 12 Million Hostages" (when Takagi and Conan are trapped in an elevator with a bomb and believe they're going to die), after Conan has demonstrated a remarkable degree of intelligence and maturity, Takagi asks Conan "who [he] really [is]". (And Conan replies, "I'll tell you…in the next life!") However, nothing is ever made of this after the episode is over—Takagi drops right back into oblivious Butt-Monkey mode.

The Stinger: A feature of the anime and the Non Serial Movies. The TV episodes, OAVs, and movies all have one last scene—sometimes several minutes long—after the end titles roll. The only exception comes in non-concluding parts of multiple-part episodes, which just show the trailer. (Though in the first couple of seasons, even these had content, though it was often just the first scene of the next episode.)

Paper-Thin Disguise: The only thing that keeps Conan from being recognized as age-regressed Shinichi are his Clark Kent glasses and other characters' Selective Obliviousness. He is otherwise not much good at Clark Kenting—he does not make much effort to hide his other Shinichi-like mannerisms (even Ran remarks on how much like Shinchi he is when he kicks a soccer ball around while thinking), and sometimes when his glasses have come off Ran has noticed how suspiciously similar to Young Shinichi he looks.

Episode on a Plane: The "New York Arc" started with a flashback episode in which Shinichi solves a variant "locked room mystery" that took place on board a plane in flight. A case featuring a disgruntled former relief pitcher was solved when Conan realizes that the suspect had taken the same flight they did. Two thirds of the 8th Non-Serial Movie, Magician of the Silver Sky, is set on a plane. Ran and Sonoko end up taking the plane in for a Crash Course Landing, aided by Conan and Kaitou Kid. Almost all of the 14th Non-Serial Movie, Lost Ship in the Sky, is set aboard an airship.

"Scooby-Doo" Hoax: A number of episodes feature this sort of thing—since the series is set in a strictly rational world (with just one or two notable exceptions), any invocation of the supernatural can be assumed to be a hoax. (That doesn't stop normally-stalwart Action Girl Ran from cowering whenever she suspects she may be up against ghosts, however.) Any cases featuring Heiji and Kazuha has more than decent chances of being one of these.

Commander Contrarian: In cases where all or most of the suspect pool are old friends, some will go out of their way to nay-say the heroes' deductions at every turn (especially if the actual perp is too meek to speak up for themselves). Depending on the context, these naysayers can come off as sympathetic or even heartbreakingnote Such as the senior monks in the Tengu Murder Case, who're desperate to believe the temple's youngest member didn't do it or just plain obnoxious.

Motive Rant: Almost every single murderer/con artist/blackmailer goes into this. Less prevalent in the Shonen Tantei-dan cases; Aoyama pretty clearly understood that any criminal who Would Hurt a Child is very, very unlikely to win the audience's sympathy, so in most cases he didn't even try. A few such criminals (like the drug-smuggling librarian) border on Card-Carrying Villain.

Honorifics: The way Shinichi/Conan refers to Ran in particular has some focus. At one point, Ran scolds Conan for using the wrong name/honorific when speaking to Hattori. (Conan is addressing him as an equal, when from Ran's point of view he should be addressing him with -san.)

Magician Detective: None of the many characters who actually claim detective as a profession, but the Kaitou Kid winds up playing this role whenever he shows up and there's a mystery (that he didn't cause), as in the magic lovers murder case, where easily seeing the trick in a murder done by an amateur Stage Magician allows him to help Conan out.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Mostly averted (much to the consternation of many fans), as the series' formula was set down almost immediately after the Origins Episode, and Aoyama rarely budges from it. Early-manga Ran, however, is noticeably more Hot-Blooded and petty than her later All-Loving Hero characterization; in the Art Museum Murder Case, Conan/Shinichi implies she regularly busts out karate moves on furniture when she doesn't get her way. The early volumes try to play up Dr. Agasa as a Bungling Inventor, with Shinichi saying to his face that his lab's turned out nothing but junk. Later volumes? Intelligence agents flat-out admit he's making toys MI6 could only dream of, and everyone (except Ai) treats him with unflinching respect. Before the Stun Gun Wristwatch was introduced, Conan used blunt force to knock Kogoro out (like kicking an ashtray upside his head). Sonoko was a lot more vindictive towards Ran in her first appearance, which shows when she considered seducing Shinichi to get back at her because a guy she liked was more interested in her. This is odd for two reasons: 1. It's later established that she doesn't like Shinichi due to his disappearance causing Ran so much distress. 2. It's incredibly out of character of her to act so spiteful to her best friend.

Disproportionate Retribution
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_50b05d30
comment
Disproportionate Retribution: The motive in quite a lot of cases. Your son praticed baseball too hard, and was hit by a truck clearly due to his exhaustion? You pay back by blowing up the company that owns the truck, and attempting to blow up a baseball stadium, potentially killing thousands of innocent people. There was a Sherlock Holmes related arc in the manga where the murderer killed an author and his own girlfriend, because he wasn't happy the guy wrote a critically lauded story where Irene Adler laughed at Holmes. That's right, the guy murdered two people in real life (and attempted to kill a third) because of fanfiction. The Golden Apple Arc. A stage actress named Rose killed her co-star actor because she didn't want anyone else but him to be the "Angel Michael". In Episode 345, the killer was motivated initially to kill the host and producer of the Halloween cruise because he hated the new movie series said host was working on. He complained on several Internet discussion boards until the Organization approached him with a working murder method. He initially refused, but then was forced into it because he was sent pictures of his wife and children. The Non-Serial Movie The Fourteenth Target is all about this. The killer's main victims injured him in a car accident which made him lose his sense of taste and ruined his profession as a sommelier, which was a dick move on their part, but killing them in return was pretty excessive. Then he also blinds and tries to kill a man just for teasing him about his profession, which unfortunately for the near-victim, was Serious Business for the killer.

Any time Kid pretends to be Shinichi, and ESPECIALLY when he flirts with Ran, Conan nearly blows his cover in his rage. Actually, anyone flirting with Ran or suggesting it gets the Glare of Death. He can be THAT much of a Crazy Jealous Guy over her. At same time, Ran gets quite peeved when she thinks that Shinichi may be committing infidelity (even though they're not in a relationship).

Always Murder
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_518de95b
comment
Always Murder: Proportionally less than The Kindaichi Case Files, but with enough magnitude to be lampshaded in Lucky Star. Seriously, if it's not about Kaito Kid, it's about murder. There are in fact a few very rare examples - two early (Relatively speaking) episodes were about a kidnapping and a slashed flag. Another episode involved Michiru solving a scam mystery. In general, even the episodes where a murder does not happen, it will either be attempted outright or be somehow related. (Such as another early episode wherein one of the main characters mistook two actors for murderers when they were going to a play that was about murder.) However, one case (involving a film set murder) was actually self-defence - the Asshole Victim attacked the "perp" who had brought a knife to threaten him, but stabbed him unintentionally. In another case murder is of course suspected... but it turns out to be suicide.

In one confrontation with the Black Organization, Conan overhears the touch tones as Vermouth emails her boss. They correspond to notes from a Japanese folk song. For a while afterward, whenever he sees someone using a cell phone particularly when calling numbers in Tottori, whose area code has the same notes he gets a flashback of Vermouth.

Always on Duty: In almost all murder cases taking place in Tokyo, Megure and his team are the policemen in charge.

Somewhat justified for Inspector Yama, who is a known Fanboy of Kogoro and therefore frequently gets assigned to cases involving him.

Badass Family: The Kudos — The son (Shinichii/Conan) has become a world-famous detective by 17, can come up brilliant and complicated plans, and has a powerful soccer kick. The father (Yusaku) is even smarter than his Teen Genius son. And while the mother (Yukiko) isn't a sleuth like her husband or son, she's a Master of Disguise who is willing to help out her family and friends. The Mouris — The daughter (Ran) is a karate champion whose physical prowess borders on superhuman, and while not an Amateur Sleuth like her Love Interest, she is quite perceptive. Her father, Kogoro, may have gotten his fame thanks mostly to Conan and is mainly used for comic relief, but when he gets serious he can even out-deduct Shinici and he's also a judo master. And Kogoro's wife, Eri Kisaski, learned judo from her husband, is quite perceptive, and and got the nickname "Queen of the Courtroom" because she has yet to lose any of her cases. The Hattoris — Heiji is an Amateur Sleuth whose skills are on par with the titular protagonist, not to mention he's a kendo practicioner. His father, Heizo, is the Osaka Police Commissioner and is able to solve a case faster than his son. And the mother/wife, Shizuka, is a kendo master.

Wire Dilemma
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_55f92df9
comment
Wire Dilemma: The Time-Bombed Skyscraper The 2-hour special "Trembling Metropolitan Police Headquarters: 12 Million Hostages" has several of these. Three years earlier, Sato's boyfriend on the bomb squad sacrificed his life by not disarming a bomb in order to text Sato a clue to the location of a bomb in a populated area that was given 3 seconds before the bomb went off. This is then subverted by Conan choosing to disarm the same culprit's current bomb in a similar situation before it can go off—he is able to figure out the location of the larger-population bomb from only half the clue. Subverted in the first Detective Conan live-action special, in which the culprit made the bomb with all wires the same color so that it could not be disarmed. Shinichi ends up soccer-kicking it through a skylight in one of the most blatant CGI special-effects ever.

Plot-Induced Stupidity

comment
Plot-Induced Stupidity: After how many cases Kogoro solved when he was unconscious, wouldn't people have actually realized that something was up by now? Especially Ran, considering she's there at almost every one of his crime scenes? Kogoro does lampshade this by saying he doesn't remember most of his cases (in the TV murder episode) so it's probably considered part of his character to practically fall unconscious and then solve the murder. And forget Kogoro - he's a detective, people often would expect this. Sonoko is often used as a dummy detective when Kogoro isn't available. (At least in the dub, Conan says, "Time to make her say something nice for a change) Here is a boy-crazy teenaged girl who is somewhat of a ditz...who also sometimes falls unconscious around crime scenes. During which, she mysteriously is able to tell who did it..wouldn't someone (Especially Ran) point out how out of character it is? Lampshaded in one case, where Conan actually tries to shoot Ran but she steps out of the way and he accidentally shoots Sonoko.

Enemy Mine: Even though catching the Kaitou Kid is one of Conan's chief aims, second only to busting up the Black Organization, Conan often ends up working together with Kid to catch bad guys or otherwise avert disaster, especially in his Non-Serial Movie appearances. (For that matter, he has occasionally worked together with Black Organization agents against other Black Organization agents, as well.) His TV-special team-up with Lupin III would probably count as well. In one case, KID teams up with his self-proclaimed arch-enemy Jirokichi Suzuki out of all people. The reason for this is that his dog, Lupin, had been locked up in a safe together with the instructions to open said safe, and Jirokichi asked KID for help to open it. In the Mystery Train arc, after deducing who Kaitou was disguised as, Conan convinces KID to dress as Sherry and fake dying in an explosion in order to deceive the Organization.

Police Are Useless
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_59907e4f
comment
Police Are Useless: Almost none of the police inspectors seem able to solve murders by themselves. In most cases, this is because the focus of the series is on Conan—hence the only cases we see them working on are the intricate ones Conan has to solve for them as the level of deduction required to solve them combined with how complex they are often makes them beyond the average inspector's capabilities. It can be assumed that they are more able when it comes to routine crimes. Subverted in the second case of the Osaka Double Mystery when Hattori Heiji's father rips into him over not stopping a second murder despite the police making the same failure, only for it to turn out that he already knew who the murderer was and was using Heiji as bait in a Batman Gambit to catch the perp of a far earlier crime. The exception that proves the rule is Inspector Yamamura, who is the poster boy for police incompetence—and who, to Conan's chagrin, was elevated to the rank of Inspector solely on the basis of solving cases that Conan is actually the one who solved it behind the scenes. Many of the rank-and-file policemen seemed to merely be taking over the crime scene.

Adaptation Distillation: The anime tends to build the cases' backgrounds and characters further than the manga (after all, Talking Is a Free Action). Therefore, cases like the murder of Mina by her sister Masayo over a misunderstanding or the asshole writer killed by his twin brother become much stronger, since we see a smooth transition between the murderers keeping their cool to becoming completely deranged.

Instant Sedation
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_5bdf025f
comment
Instant Sedation: Played straight with Conan's wrist-watch tranquilizer needle gun. Kogoro barely has time to mumble a few words before keeling over. Ditto with other attackers or culprits. Also nicely subverted in that Conan, who is stuck as a six year old, will go down quicker when knocked out compared to the teenagers and adults... But the method of sedation is normally a cloth covered in narcotics or chloroform, instead of intramuscular injection. Averted by Gin who stays conscious long enough to shoot himself in the arm to keep awake — and then climb down a chimney into a burning room to murder a fellow agent whose cover was blown and then climb back up said chimney using said wounded arm. Subverted in the first Lupin III crossover, when Conan hits Zenigata with the darts to give the cases' answer, Zenigata goes out just as quick as anyone else... he just doesn't stay out as long as most people do, it being implied that he's gained an resistence to such toxins from all the stuff he's gone through chasing Lupin, over the years.

Four Eyes, Zero Soul
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_5d6db368
comment
Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Subverted in anime episode 799. An old woman's glasses go into this in flashback just as Conan is realizing she was responsible for the death of that episode. The subversion is that the death was accidental. The criminal was a burglar who performed crimes via Wall Crawling. On a stormy night, she saw him through her window and, out of reflex, brandished a washing machine hose she was carrying at him. The water from the hose sprayed the window, startled the man, and caused him to lose his grip which sent him plummeting to his death.

Single-Target Sexuality
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_5f49ac76
comment
Single-Target Sexuality: Shinichi and Ran have only ever been interested in each other. Shinichi has liked Ran sine they were preschoolers and Ran since they were 15. Sonoko's boyfriend, Makoto, has only ever liked Sonoko since he first saw her. Kazuha doesn't even look at another guy in a romantic aspect except for Heiji; and speaking of Heiji, while he may have been oblivious to his own feelings for Kazuha most of the series, he also never been interested in anyone else except her. There's also Shiratori towards Satou or so he thinks. Satou's a false positive of sorts, and his decades-old feelings are actually for Kobayashi-sensei. However, because Satou and Kobayashi have such similar features, and because Kobayashi idolized police and back then didn't use glasses, Shiratori thought fate was bringing him together with his old love when he ran into Detective Satou. Sorry but no, Shiratori...?

Spanner in the Works: Kazuha Toyama, whenever Heiji has a plan that involves him dressing up as someone else. She knows him that well. Ran is this for the killer in the Mountain Villa Murder Case as by walking in on him changing, she saw him without the ever present Fat Suit that he wears in public. In the "Ran Girl / Shinichi Boy" arc, a culprit concocts a long-term plan to kidnap a preschool-aged Ran as a Replacement Goldfish for his runaway daughter. When little Shinichi picks up on suspicious behavior, the plan is moved up and, as a result, the would-be perpetrators are caught.

Something Only They Would Say
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_605cf3f

Something Only They Would Say: Subverted and then played straight in episode 2: Conan reveals he knows about the mole on Agasa's butt to try to convince Agasa he's really Shinichi in a kid's body—but Agasa just assumes Shinichi's been blabbing. Then Conan uses a Sherlock Scan to demonstrate that he really is Shinichi. Used as a red herring later where Jodie is routinely seen using a catch phrase of Vermouth ("A secret makes a woman a woman"), the Black Organization's master of disguise (who bears some resemblance to Jodie). Turns out that Vermouth said the same phrase to Jodie after killing Jodie's parents. Used and abused by Kaitou Kid in the 14th non-canonical movie, where Kid accidentally overhears Shinichi tell Haibara and Agasa that Ran mistook the first airship she saw for a UFO. Kid later uses this nugget of information to convince her that he IS Shinichi, after he passes her pinch-test, but she still suspects him using Shinichi as a cover identity because they have 'similar faces'.

Schrödinger's Cast
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_621bfb77
comment
Schrödinger's Cast: Granted, the series (manga or anime) had a case of Cerebus Syndrome, and the manga-side change happened after the anime has been aired for a year. The problem for the producers and writers of the animated show was that they had removed all references to The Syndicate in the first season. This causes two very gratitous examples of this trope: The Chekhov's Gun from episode 12—The Syndicate killing their mook—was removed in the anime, by changing it to generic-evil-guy-seriously-hurting-but-not-killing-a mook. However, Aoyama fired the gun by making the murder victim a Red Herring Shirt and the dead older sister of a new character. Result? Continuity Porn was applied by killing her again, this time by The Syndicate, in a filler 116 episodes later. A lampshade was hung by Ran asking Conan if they had seen that character any time before. This arc is the Billion Yen Heist. It was pertinent because Akemi Miyano had to die under the organization's hands to bring her little sister Shiho aka Ai in, because she is Ai's dead elder sister. This also resulted in the series running in a very restricted expanded plot so as to prevent Continuity Snarl by preventing any of the writer's Chekhov's Guns to be removed. If that wasn't gratuitous enough, see this: in episode 4 (involving the bomb on the train), the villains were supposed to be Those Two Bad Guys, and in the manga Conan overheard their names as Gin and Vodka. Again, in the anime they were changed to some other long coat badasses. The anime writers didn't even try to handwave that; Gin and Vodka's names were inserted into Conan's memory in the second season! In the German Dub, the names are also inserted in episode 4.

OTOH, a very spoiled Rich Bitch once invited Kogoro, Ran and Conan to her huge b-day party as payment for them finding her lost pet puppy...but she and one of her suitors ended up murdered soon afterwards. A friend of both of them was the culprit, having found out that they killed the granddaughter of the girl's nanny (whom he had feelings for) by letting her drown to save their own lives during a boat wreck. So he first drugged and drowned the man in a fountain with his own hands, and then left the bound and gagged girl to drown in a covered bath tub, to let them know why they were being killed as well as experience a death similar to the one they inflicted on the girl he loved.

Mean Character, Nice Actor: One episode featured a singer named Onizuka Satan. Who often plays up being a demon, but is a decent guy, and the episode's Sympathetic Murderer. Context (Spoiler Alert)  He befriended a young girl who was a fan of his work, who often write letters to him. However, after obtaining an injury, the Corrupt Corporate Executive wrote a letter impersonating Satan. The letter demanded "sacrifices" for the sake of publicity, and the young girl took her life as she was a very devout fan.

Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Usually Played for Laughs, Kogoro would yell at, throw, and even punch Conan for simply opening his mouth. Though, it seems punching is a valid form of punishment in this show. He even went as far as placing his fist on Conan's head and saying "Killing move... DRILL PUNCH!" and delivering the noogie from hell. While she doesn't show up nearly as much, Yukiko has also been shown conking her son for petty reasons (though at least she knows "Conan's" real age). Even Ran's done it once or twice.

Wine Is Classy
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_6ad19559
comment
Wine Is Classy: A number of episodes, movies, and OAVs have significant plot points concerning the tasting of fine wines. One of the characters in the second Non-Serial Movie, The Fourteenth Target, is an expert sommelier who is able to identify the exact vintage of wine by its sight, smell, and taste. It turns out the sommelier is the culprit, and is in part taking revenge for an accident that robbed him of his sense of taste. At least two of the television episodes involve crimes that take place in or around wine cellars. In one, the murder uses a clothesline to deposit the body of the victim in the middle of the cellar without actually entering himself. In another, an assault victim at a wine-tasting ruins a bottle of fine wine by heating and shaking it up as a message that his attempted murderer has imprisoned him in the cellar. Averted with Kogoro Mori, a heavy drinker who professes to enjoy fine wine but is completely unskilled in the handling and drinking of it—and (as is revealed when Ran switches bottles on him) is incapable of distinguishing fine wine from cheap wine. He frequently gets drunk on wine, sake, or beer, and ends up with his necktie around his head.

A strange variation happened in one case: our Villain of the Week had a bad heart, but it was she who killed the loan shark who drove her boyfriend to suicide over the money for "that operation." (See Finger-Licking Poison for the murder itself.) God, is she a bitchy chain smoker. In her confession, she mentions that her boyfriend was her Morality Pet and the only one who ever loved her after her parents's deaths. As Orihime of This Very Wiki says, be careful when threatening an Ill Girl's loved ones: if she gets better, she'll kill you!

Adaptational Early Appearance: In the anime, the members of Detective Boys got speaking roles in the first episode, before Shinichi was shrunk. 3-year-old versions of the Detective Boys appeared in the Magic File #2 prequel OAV, in which middle-schooler Shinichi helped a man prove his alibi.

Mugging the Monster: In ch. 814, three guys in an alley decide they need to hush up the people who have collected enough evidence to implicate them for theft—those people being Ran, Sera, and Conan (and Sonoko). The toughs have a knife and a tire iron. Guess who walks away? Hint: It is not the criminals.

comment
Idiot Ball: Because the show is named Detective Conan, Conan has to be the one to solve pretty much every case, so pretty much every police officer and detective gets one of these whenever a body is found. No officer will ever find any relevant evidence, no matter how quickly it should have shown up in the case of a routine investigation, or figure out the real killer/method, no matter how obvious the clues. Well, they can FIND relevant evidence; they'll just never interpret it properly (at first) or make the right connections. Certain recurring characters are immune; In "The Red Wall" Kansuke Yamato figures out the culprit simultaneously with Conan, and Komei beat them both to it. Worst of all would be Sonoko, who finds nothing strange about randomly falling asleep in the middle of a murder investigation, only to be woken by random people congratulating her on solving a case she knows nothing about. Many separate times. This, however, was implied to be ego on her part; "ohmigod; I solved a mystery while I was asleep! I must be some kind of GENIUS!" Still, there was at least one case where, in the manga version at least, Satou noticed something wrong with the culprit's actions way ahead of Conan (in the anime version, it looks like they notice it at the same time), and thus was able to prepare to take the culprit down without being around for even a second of the Sleeping Kogoro routine. Heavens help Beika's already-beleaguered criminal element when she and/or Takagi reach Shiratori's rank...

What an Idiot!
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_73dce7d
comment
For example, we have had an injured American tourist recuperating in a Japanese household and falling in love with a young woman. Because of a mouth injury, at first he could only communicate by writing out Japanese phrases phonetically. As he was leaving, the young woman asked if he loved her, and he wrote down the word "shine", referring to his earlier words that he wanted a "shining bride", but which she quite naturally interpreted as "shi-ne," which happens to be Japanese for "go die", since the note was handed to her by her sisters who thought Robert was being mean. The woman committed suicide after he left, and when he came back he ended up murdering part of her family in revenge. What an Idiot!.

Ran and Shinichi. While their feelings have been kinda wavering for quite the time, as time passed they grew stronger and Shinichi managed to give Ran a Love Confession in London - but Shinichi has been trapped in the body of a little boy (the titular Conan) for 95% of the story and cannot openly tell Ran who he is, lest she and his friends will be targeted by the same evil organization that shrunk him. In the meantime, poor Ran waits for Shinichi's return...

Sweat Drop
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_76df73e
comment
Sweat Drop: Conan, when Kogoro says or does something stupid (especially at the very end of an episode). Although not an example of the comedic use of the trope, lots of people break out in cold sweats during the episodes—usually the murderer, or those who are considered suspects. Sometimes the murderer can be picked out by being the only one out of all the suspects who is sweating, but this is often a Red Herring. Also a symptom of Conan/Shinichi's impeding change from child to adolescent and vice-versa. Actually lampshaded by Heiji in the moving car strangulation case, where just before the first symptoms are felt by Shinichi, Heiji worriedly notices that he's sweating a lot.

She Is Not My Girlfriend
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_78410584
comment
She Is Not My Girlfriend: No, really! We're Just Friends- in fact, we're Like Brother and Sister. Heiji and Kazuha could say it a hundred times, but it's not going to change anyone's opinion because Everyone Can See It. For example, a random stranger has TOLD Kazuha to ask Heiji out. Subverted as the series progresses for Shinichi and Ran. Shinichi is quite acutely aware of his feelings for her (having in fact liked her before she liked him, a rare case for Shonen Manga) while living with Ran removed any possible lingering doubt he might have had on reciprocation. As time passes in-universe and Shinichi continues to remain missing, Ran drops almost all pretenses of 'just friends' behaviour and denial whenever he is mentioned or he calls. The subversion culminates in later chapters/episodes where Shinichi has finally confessed his feelings to Ran. The case spanning chapter 1000 to 1004 has Ran confess her feelings by kissing Shinichi's cheek. As of Chapter 1005, the two of them have agreed to officially be boyfriend/girlfriend.

comment
My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Although the show is set in a "realistic" universe, and young Shinichi pooh-poohs the idea of clairvoyance in one of the prequel OAVs, certain characters nonetheless exhibit something along those lines. Sherry/Haibara Ai is able to sense when members of the Black Organization are near, and Conan is sometimes able to sense when Ran is in danger. (In the Strategy Above the Depths Non-Serial Movie, Conan was drawn back to the sinking cruise ship when Ran was trapped inside, though he did not at first know why.)

Pocket Protector: In one episode, Heiji loans Conan a good luck charm he wears after having a premonition of Conan's death. The charm ends up saving Conan's life when someone tries to stab him. In another episode, Conan's anesthetic needle hits Ran in the butt after she steps between him and Kogoro—but it was stopped by the hotel baggage claim tags in her back pocket. Takagi gets his life saved via a bullet catching on a mahjong tile. Fellow officer Shiratori hangs a lampshade on this, commenting how this sort of thing usually only happens in movies.

Potty Failure: One arc humorously applied this; Eri Bound and Gagged Kogoro on his sofa, and while Eri was out with Ran and Conan, Kogoro complained about a Potty Emergency... When they came back, they noticed a strange smell from the sofa, which Kogoro said was "dog pee." In the "Ran Girl / Shinichi Boy" arc, showing how Ran and Shinichi met at preschoolers, Shinichi notes several acts of favoritism towards Ran by their teacher, one of which was his reserving the naptime spot closest to the door for her. Shinichi inadvertently embarrasses Ran when the teacher explains that he was doing that to avoid a repeat of a previous accident. That however, was not the real reason, as the putting her close to the door was intended to facilitate kidnapping Ran by placing her close to the door where the actual kidnapper would break in. When explaining his deductions, Yusaku notes that the teacher was also drugging Ran with sleeping pills to cause the original accident and justify moving her.

What Does She See in Him?: This is pretty much how Sonoko sees Ran's relationship with Shinichi; for Sonoko, Shinichi is just a mystery otaku. In one case, a man tries to kill his bride at a wedding. She notices his intentions, but three years later, she marries him anyway.. Granted the marriage ends up happening after many revelations, a My God, What Have I Done? from the groom, the man serving time in jail for the attempted murder, and presumably a reconciliation in which the man and the woman come clean to each other about everything.

Tsundere: Ran is a Type B Tsundere, meaning she's normally in deredere ("hot" or "sweet") mode but can rapidly change to tsuntsun ("cold" or "bitter"). Kazuha gravitates more towards the Type A (tsuntsun, "cranky") type around Heiji. In "The Steam Murder" (issue 722 of the manga, episode 597 of the anime), when an actress who played a kind female lead in the original Kamen Yaiba series brushes the Detective Boys off coldly, Genta wonders aloud, "Is she tsundere?". Agasa wonders if Ai is one. Conan snarkily asks him if she's ever dere.

The 11th movie Jolly Roger in the Deep Azure has Ran and Sonoko got taken hostages by two treasure hunters/wanted criminals, who used them not only as baits for the sharks living near the underwater ruins they're diving into, but also to test out the traps laid in the ruins themselves when they got there as well. Kogoro understandably has a massive Freak Out when he learns of this, but he cannot do anything except to wait and pray as the weather is too bad to send a ship out.

Deconstructed in a backstory arc when Eri and Kogoro, before separation, found Yukiko and Yusaku's laissez-faire parenting as a bit annoying.

In the 11th Non-Serial Movie, Jolly Roger in the Deep Azure, the "pirate treasure" of Anne Bonny and Mary Read turns out to be a hidden but empty pirate ship, built by Anne while waiting for Mary to get out of prison, which crumbles to bits upon being exposed to outside air.

Broken Pedestal
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_868409c
comment
Broken Pedestal: During the 3 Ks of Osaka arc (anime episodes 238-239/manga chapters 293-295), Conan realizes that his idol, the famous European soccer player Ray Curtis, is the murderer of the week. Not only that, but the rumors about his heroin addiction were, in fact, true. Which results in Conan giving him the 'I believed in you, you traitor' speech entirely in broken, badly-accented but absolutely beautiful English to Ray in person, just to show him exactly how broken-hearted he is. Technically, you could mark it as the one time he's completely shed his mask on anybody not related to the plot. Another instance involves a woman who worked at a pastry shop and was kind to Ayumi...who had lured her downstairs neighbor under her window and dropped a flower pot on her head. Poor Ayumi didn't want to believe she could have done it, and was broken-hearted when it turned out she did. It happened again when the Detective Boys investigated a case of self-defense by a man Mitsuhiko idolized and discovered it was actually premeditated murder. Ran and Sonoko had a teacher they loved and admired... and happened to be the Sympathetic Murderer of the Ski Lodge Murder Case (anime episodes 84-85/manga chapters 139-143), going as far as setting a Wounded Gazelle Gambit by drugging Sonoko and then pretending somebody else attacked both of them. And before that, it was barely averted when Ran learned a karate champion she fangirled was the killer in the Night Baron Murder Case (anime episodes 68-70/manga chapters 72-77)... but he was trying to deliberately look like the suspect, since the murderer was his Broken Bird girlfriend. In that particular case, he was arrested for Taking the Heat anyway. And then there's a subversion... In the "Memories of the Cherry Blossom" case, Shiratori is genuinely saddened when he meets a girl who seemed to be his "girl of destiny" who inspired him to be a policeman, and it turns out she's a Broken Bird/Woman Scorned who has just killed her boyfriend after he screwed her over and tried to use him and the Detective Kids to strengthen her alibi... but soon he finds out she isn't the girl he's been pining for. And he later finds out who she *actually* is.

Those Two Bad Guys
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_8864f9a9
comment
If that wasn't gratuitous enough, see this: in episode 4 (involving the bomb on the train), the villains were supposed to be Those Two Bad Guys, and in the manga Conan overheard their names as Gin and Vodka. Again, in the anime they were changed to some other long coat badasses. The anime writers didn't even try to handwave that; Gin and Vodka's names were inserted into Conan's memory in the second season! In the German Dub, the names are also inserted in episode 4.

Call It Karma
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_88cefec2
comment
Call It Karma: See Poor Communication Kills below. But also… The culprit in episode 599, "A Friend of Justice", actually literally did call his act of murder karma (having found out that the murder victim bilked a friend of his out of a great deal of money, leading to her death of shock—though he was ordinarily a kindly and forgiving man, this he could not forgive). However, in a rare example of Call It Karma turning into real Karma, it turned out that the friend had actually forgiven the con men, because of the example the murderer himself had earlier set in being forgiving toward people. In his rage after finding out how his friend had been conned in her diary, he hadn't read her final entry. (Further, one of the surviving con men broke down in tears after finding out the woman had forgiven him.)

Zig-Zagged. In the Funimation dub, where most characters (with the exception of Conan) got American names, however TMS eventually ditched this as recent English material note  such as Conan's appearance in Granblue Fantasy as well the Detective Conan Runner app (renamed Case Closed Runner in some territories including North America) as well as the dubs of the Episode One special, movie 21 (The Crimson Love Letter) and movie 22 (Zero the Enforcer) has kept the original Japanese names and terminology as is with the only remnant of this being Viz Media's translation of the manga.

Mistaken Nationality: Inverted from the usual case; in the episode introducing James Black, kidnappers mistake Black for the wealthy American owner of a trained dolphin show. Conan explains to the Detective Boys that, just as many Westerners believe in Identical-Looking Asians, all Caucasians look alike to many Asians. At the same time, this is subverted when Conan is able to differentiate Black from the show-owner because he speaks English with a British rather than Texan accent (at least for the show's purposes. However, he actually speaks it with a "Japanese actor reading phonetically" accent).

Lawyer-Friendly Cameo

Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: ''Kiss Note'', anyone? Or ''Urban Hunter''? The Urban Hunter appearance is especially noteworthy since the voice actor for Kogoro at the time was also the voice actor for City Hunter's Ryo Saeba. As well as the popular kids' action show Kamen Yaiba (which is also a namedrop of an otherwise-unrelated manga called Yaiba from the same mangaka as Conan). This one has been lampshaded in the Conan vs. Kaitou Kid vs. Yaiba OAV in which the Detective Boys meet Yaiba in an episode-long dream sequence and accuse him of lying about his name because he is obviously not Kamen Yaiba.

Asshole Victim
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_8ed5c6e4
comment
Asshole Victim: Very often, the killer is in a Roaring Rampage of Revenge due to the victim committing one or more acts of Kick the Dog. You can often predict the victim in most of the episodes by seeing which of the newly-introduced characters acts like the biggest jerk. Subverted in "The Forgotten Bond" (episode 121-122/chapter 197-199): Mindy/Masayo murdered her sister Maya/Miina because she believed that she had knowingly stolen her boyfriend Kenneth/Kenji (which also was the corollary of Miina having spent years imitating her, something that Masayo at first found cute but later thought of as creepy), but the truth was that Kenji fell for Miina all on his own. Miina didn't want Masayo's feelings to be hurt by the fact that Kenji had chosen her over Masayo so she pretended that she had seduced Kenji. A good sister until the end, when Masayo sent her to buy two bottles of cleaning solution (which she intended to mix together and create the poisonous gas that would kill Miina), Miina read the label at the counter, realized that the two chemicals could be dangerous if mixed together, and switched one of them out, not wanting to put her sister's life in danger. Once Conan reveals this, the killer has a My God, What Have I Done? moment and breaks down crying over her victim's body, begging her to wake up. Also subverted in the Karaoke Murder case. The murderer was the manager of the band, who killed the lead singer for insulting her constantly, despite the fact that they had been going out when they were younger, and she still loved him, to the point that she got plastic surgery, wanting to look nicer for him. Unfortunately, he hated the fact that she'd changed who she was for him. Not knowing how to say this, he started being a Jerkass to her, eventually leading to her killing him. To add insult to injury note (...so to speak...) It was revealed he had written a new song for her, planning to tell her everything. Ouch. Also subverted in the "Kaitou Kid and the Four Masterpieces" case. After losing the ability to paint following the death of his wife, the culprit planned to only have a set of three paintings. However, because his father-in-law had scammed people into buying the third piece (in order to help pay for the wife's medical treatment), they needed a fourth painting. The culprit plans to claim the painting has been stolen by Kaitou Kid, but the father-in-law tells him that if he didn't find a way to make a fourth painting, that he would have a plan of his own. Thinking that his father-in-law plans to reveal the truth, he kills him. After the truth about the murder comes out, the culprit learns that his father-in-law had been practicing painting with his mouth (having injured his hand) in order to imitate the culprit's art style so that he could give the culprit a fourth painting to sell. The culprit is appropriately horrified when he learns this. Completely inverted in at least one case. In the clam-digging case, the victim is far and away the most decent man in the group, since he was the only one with enough of a conscience to still want to report a past hit-and-run to the police. All of his so-called friends were happy to let sleeping dogs lie. Also inverted in "The Culprit Is Genta's Dad". The culprit turns out to be the leader of a group of robbers that's been known to kill people, while the whole reason the victim started the contest to find the best "Kojima-san" in order to find and kill the culprit because he cruelly decapitated his dog during a robbery (since the only clue he had was that they shared a surname). Also used straight the first time Ran suspected Conan's identity. Ran mentioned their PE teacher is marrying. Conan asked "Since when can gorillas get married?" Oh, Crap!.

Kissing Cousins: In one of the earlier cases, the killer's motive for killing his grandfather, was that he had been in love since childhood with his cousin and the heiress of the family fortune, as she was the old man's favorite grandkid, and the older man brutally forbid them to marry and mocked him. The killer's parents were also cousins, and the patriarch only very reluctantly agreed their marriage. Note that Japanese culture considers cousin marriages as more or less acceptable, though it's treated as a large revelation here. In a Q&A with fans in Singapore, Gosho confirmed Akai Shuichi and Miyano Akemi are actually cousins. Here's the interview, it's around 34:23

Children Are Innocent: The Detective Boys have retained much of their cheerful innocence despite all the murders and other crimes they've been witness to. An anime episode had a culprit try to exploit this trope. Having met Haibara and noticed she's smarter than the average first grader, the culprit kidnaps her, poses as a kidnap victim alongside her, and manipulates their surroundings as a way of establishing an alibi. The culprit's goal is that Haibara will provide a sufficiently detailed testimony whose honesty won't be questioned because she's a child.

Hot Springs Episode
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_926e0d7d
comment
Hot Springs Episode: There are a number of episodes set at onsens over the course of the series (given that Kogoro/Richard is a big fan of hot springs). In an early episode we have one of the more memorable scenes where Ran and a rather shaken Conan return from the springs after they bathe together. Kogoro notices that Conan is unusually quiet and, when Ran tells him what they've been doing, he wonders out loud if he's dumsbtruck after seeing Ran naked, and Conan has an epic Nose Bleed at the suggestion. Later the episode, we have Kogoro: This time, both the victim and the murderer were dear friends of Kogoro, so he goes into a full It's Personal mode and we get to see that with a bit of nudging from Conan (who wanted to solve it at first but was moved by the other's determination), Kogoro can solve cases by himself. The bathing scene actually gets a nice Continuity Nod a little later in the manga. When Ran accuses Conan of being Shinichi, a number of newly embarrassing scenes from the earlier stories flood back. The memory of her bathing totally naked with Conan certainly explains the strength of her anger and embarrassment. Additionally, in the anime Yukiko tells Conan that it's a good thing Ran didn't find out who he was "because had she realised you took a bath with her as a kid..."

Bitter Almonds: Conan can smell that smell from cyanide victims' mouths. In manga file #757, Conan points out that there's an element of Fingertip Drug Analysis to this: he smells an almond scent coming from a corpse's lips, but cautions one of the others on the scene against sniffing because he's an "amateur". He then goes on to point out the difference between the smell of bitter and sweet almonds, as mentioned on the trope page.

Patricide: In the The Shaking Restaurant Case Saki Yoshizawa killed Hanaoka who is very implied to be her father because he had abandoned her mother and not even sent her any news which made her pass away while still waiting for him for twenty years. Before that, during the Detective Boys' very first case, it is revealed that the son of the mansion's owner killed him because he pressured him too much about entering university. The mother, who wanted to protect her son, arranged the crime as robbery and locked him up until the case expired. With Conan's persuasion, they eventually turned themselves in.

Busman's Holiday
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_94332264
comment
Busman's Holiday: No matter where he goes, people die. Lampshaded after a while by whichever of the police officers happens to be on duty in that area. Megure in particular begins to wonder if Kogoro is actually the Angel of Death, later on more accurately shifting his joking suspicions towards Conan himselfnote in The Revolving Sushi Mystery arc (manga chapters 655-657/anime episodes 549-550). By the Coffee Aroma with Murderous Intention case (anime episode 513/manga chapter 629), Megure even lampshades the lampshading, saying (after he wonders aloud why Kogoro is at the scene of a murder yet again), "I should just let it drop. It's becoming silly." Also lampshaded during The Final Screening Murder Case (manga chapter 222/anime episode 138) where the Detective Boys are watching movies in a theater and Ai tells Conan he should relax and enjoy a "child's vacation." When someone is killed at the back of the theater, Ai remarks, "It seems you never have time for a vacation." In episode 141, Heiji says about Conan, "Every time I see that guy a case occurs," ... about thirty seconds before a scream is heard and a body discovered. Hell, when you get those two together the bodies literally start falling out of the sky. While on fire. And during The Mystery in the Net case (manga chapters 311-313/anime episodes 246-247) where the Detective Boys and Ran and Sonoko independently wind up at the same beach, Sonoko says of Conan, "The reason we didn't bring him was because there are always cases when he's around!" Later in the same episode, Haibara learns where Conan and the others are after they're late returning to their hotel (having discovered a murder while she was not present) by asking the hotel staff if there is a murder being investigated nearby. At the beginning of the first file of the paper airplane case, Conan notices how he seems to be running into cases all the time. This is the first time he's ever noticed, and this is over 600 chapters into the manga. Except that in the very first chapter of the whole manga, he tells Ran that murders "happen all the time", which implies that encountering a lot of murders is normal to him. The rate of cases must have ramped up even further for him to notice that something is odd.

Coordinated Clothes
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_94be6b61
comment
Coordinated Clothes: In her début scene, Kazuha is very jealous when Ran accidentally shows up in the same shirt as Heiji, and so Ran changes out of it. Kazuha and Heiji are childhood friends who claim to be Like Brother and Sister but they're really a couple who just haven't started dating yet. Kazuha thought that Ran was the person Heiji was secretly talking to over the phone and wanted to meet with in person, and she interprets the outfits as intentional. Two identical necklaces are a subtle hint that another pair of characters are romantically inclined. At the end of the mystery, Ran and Kazuha end up switching shirts for a Brick Joke. Ran's wearing a shirt that happens to be similar to Heiji's current outfit, so she has Kazuha wear it instead. Kazuha feels super embarrassed, but Heiji is oblivious as to the romantic implications. Conan snarks to himself that those two are more like a straight-man and funny-guy duo than a couple.

A certain case gives us Hideomi and Miyuki. When Hideomi was a teen, his and his best friend's Deadly Prank killed Miyuki's parents and he barely managed to save her, but was physically scarred and wrecked with guilt. He tried to help her as much as he could in the following years, trying to atone for his terrible mistake... and when Miyuki gave him a Love Confession despite knowing what he had done, he crossed the Despair Event Horizon and commited suicide.

One Degree of Separation
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_959cb9aa
comment
One Degree of Separation: This series is very prone to this trope: Despite Kaito and Shinichi meeting by complete coincidence as KID and Conan with no knowledge of any personal connection, Kaito's father was Shinichi's mother's mentor and Shinichi's father's rival and best friend, and in the Magic Kaito anime adaptation, Shinichi's surrogate uncle, Agasa, is heavily implied to be the long-time friend of Jii, Kaito's surrogate grandfather, and the supplier of the gear Jii gives Kaito to help with his heists. Despite Shinichi's encounter with the Black Org being pure bad luck and Haibara's seeking him out for protection being completely unrelated to who Shinichi actually is, the assassin sent after Haibara is the best friend Shinichi's mother, a friendship she made during her mentorship under Kaito's father. An assassin whose life Shinichi and Ran completely coincidentally encountered and saved while said assassin was undercover as a serial killer, completely ignorant of her ties to Shinichi's family or the Black Org. And after saving that "serial killer," Ran encounters Akai Shuichi, the FBI agent who would later partner with Shinichi to take down the Black Org. When Sera Masumi returns to Japan to investigate the supposed death of her brother, Akai Shuichi, we learn that her and Shuichi's second brother, by complete coincidence, was actually a long-reoccurring minor police officer's boyfriend, Haneda Shukichi. It is implied that the Miyano the Akai families are related. Neither set of children show any awareness of this, but they've all encountered each other anyways in various completely unrelated circumstances during the course of the plot. The Akai family has intimately wedged themselves into the Black Org conflict. Shinichi randomly met the Akai family when he was on a family beach trip as a child, and became Sera's inspiration to be a detective. During a case in which Takagi is kidnapped, Takagi has a brief arc mourning the loss of his previous police partner and mentor, Date Wataru. Later we find out that Furuya Rei (aka Amuro Tooru aka Bourbon) was friends with Date at the police academy.

For the most part, this trope is averted - the Butler or Housekeeper is usually the Exposition Fairy to Conan by providing insight into family drama that family members don't want to reveal. It's outright defied in Billionaire Birthday Blues where The housekeeper has arguably the most visible motive out of anyone in the house - since both victims had been responsible for the death of her granddaughter.

There Are No Therapists
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_96fbeaf
comment
There Are No Therapists: One of the many Fridge Logic elements that goes along with the ridiculous number of murders Conan witnesses; shouldn't anyone worry it might be a little disturbing? Conan himself seems to have little trouble with seeing brutally murdered people on a daily basis likely because of his upbringing, and the same could be said for Heiji. Ai's past seems to suggest she'd be used to it as well, but the only three genuine little kids in the series (Ayumi, Genta, Mitsuhiko) have probably seen more than a couple hundred warm corpses over the course of the series with no apparent repercussions. In general, the teenagers Ran and Kazuha tend to have stronger immediate reactions, but don't develop any psychological problems either. In Captured In Her Eyes, there's only one psychiatrist available to help Ran when she gets amnesia, and he's the killer. There are, literally, no therapists. In another case, there is actually a therapist, but he's the murderer and manipulated one of his patients into believing he was committing the crimes while sleepwalking and therefore taking the blame for the therapist's deeds.

In the Blood
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_97aaa7f3
comment
In the Blood: The Non-Serial Movie The Phantom of Baker Street started out with sensible social commentary on Japan's hereditary culture but hits this trope around the revelation that the bad guy is a descendant of Jack the Ripper and thus couldn't stop the murderous nature in his gene— or, at least, killed people because he was found he was the descendent thereof. Of course it's not so much this as the bad reputation such a revelation would cause if it went public that scared him, because the hereditary culture would turn him into that character in the eyes of the people. And then at some point his panic caused his common sense to run a few red lights and then hit a lamppost, a little understandably. Basically, it could be about how concentrating on erasing the mistakes of one's ancestors can make you repeat them. The said social commentary is actually subverted; see It Runs in the Family, below.

Not So Different
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_993cf18f
comment
Not So Different: Subverted in episode 119, which involves a supposed suicide that takes place at a party for Kamen Yaiba fans. It turns out to be murder, of course, but once the culprit is exposed, he claims he's not so different from Kamen Yaiba: the culprit's motive is that the victim had stolen the culprit's younger brother's rare poster and the younger brother in question had gotten hit by a truck trying to get it back, so the culprit killed the victim out of revenge. Why, he's just like Kamen Yaiba, who was motivated to fight crime after his little sister was killed by a gang. Then the Detective Boys angrily explain to the culprit that he's nothing like Yaiba; after all, Yaiba fights crime to protect innocent lives, not to hurt people.

comment
Bandaged Face: A couple of cases included one. A murder happens aboard a boat with a costume/masquerade party, where some characters are dressed as mummies. Also, the detective who solves the murder, thought to be Shinichi but actually Heiji in disguise, is dressed up as the Invisible Man. Another example - The victim wore bandages on his face after he deliberately burnt down a motel, despite the scars are easily removed by plastic surgery. That fact was used by others to create alibis for the real murders—they disguised themselves as him after he committed suicide. The first Closed Circle case of this series involves this as well. There are several other examples in YMMV.

HandWaved
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_9c917937
comment
Following the previous point, Kogoro and Sonoko never had much of an issue taking credit for deductions they have no recollection of. Both cases are somewhat handwaved as ego-stroking and, in Kogoro's case, a simple "Meh, whatever" attitude where he doesn't care so long as the job is done. He eventually becomes vaguely aware of his unexplained bouts of somnolence, believing that he has an subconscious alter-ego solving his cases for him.

Foreshadowing
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: Possibly a coincidence, but after one of Kogoro's drinking binges, he says he had "some gin, some vodka, bourbon." "Bourbon" being the current mysterious Black Organization member. One of the hints that Shuichi Akai was really Subaru Okiya in disguise was given as early as the latter's introductory case, where a child described him as "red." In Opening 31, there's a scene where Akai and Scar Akai pull a gun on each other, hinting that they are two different people. Possibly a coincidence, in Chapter 1 where members of the Black Organization first appeared (Gin and Vodka), there was a crow ominously looking over the rollercoaster. This was way before Karasuma Renya was ever mentioned and also before the link between him and the Black Organization became known. "Karasu" is Japanese for "crow". The Organization has been subtly and deliberately linked with crows even further: The first concrete lead Conan gets is from Miyano Akemi, who tells him as she dies: "They like to wear black clothes that make them look like crows." While the line at first sounds like an simple comparison she's making to describe how they like to dress, it can also be interpreted as her telling him that the Organization dresses in black specifically to mimic crows. The latter, of course, turns out to be true. When Conan figures out the phone number of the Boss, he's able to do so because the number pattern plays out the melody to the folk song "Nanatsu no Ko" - specifically, the first line, "Crow, why do you cry?" And of course, in Karasuma Renya's introductory chapter, over 700 chapters before we learn about his link to the Organization, we see his personal symbol—a crow—and hear about an organization he famously headed fifty years prior to the storyline, before the massacre in the house. Considering Haibara had said prior that APTX 4869 (and thus, Shinichi) was a part of a research project that had been going on for fifty years, and that these hints collectively establish that the Black Organization specifically mimics crows and fits exactly with the timeline this implies, it's rather a wonder Karasuma wasn't suggested as a suspect earlier.... During Conan's close enounter with Gin and Vodka in Volume 38, he ends up hiding in a coin locker with the number 0219. The 219th episode of the anime? The first episode of the Sunset Mansion case, which first introduced Renya Karasuma.

In another (filler) case, this was played heartbreakingly straight with Kaori, a young girl whose brother Toshiya Todakoro is the ghost writer for the Victim of the Week, writer Daisuke Torakura, who used to pay for her hospital bills in exchange for the guy's hard work. We later learn the horrible truth: Kaori actually died six months ago, because Torakura actually bribed her doctor into keeping her on painkillers only instead of paying for crucial and expensive treatment abroad (as per his end of the bargain), so Todakuro would remain as his subordinate indefinitely. This lack of treatment ultimately killed her. And when poor Todakuro found out from the guilt-ridden nurse who used to tend to the girl, he went nuts with grief and murdered Todakura.

Death by Secret Identity: Pisco, a member of the Black Organization, figures out Ai's identity, but he's executed by Gin for screwing up on an assassination before he can say anything. The same scenario occurs in the 13th Non-Serial Movie, with operative Irish executed before he can share his discovery of Conan's identity. Subverted by Vermouth; she also knows, but keeps mum due to her friendship with Shinichi's mother (and because Shinichi and Ran saved her life the previous year) and perhaps also a desire to see whether or not Shinichi succeeds in taking the organization down.

The Butler Did It

comment
The Butler Did It: In episode 44, the Three Hotta Siblings Murder Case, the butler reveals that he killed Mr. Hotta because his son was driven to suicide due to his treatment, even though the shunned daughter appeared to have a motive and was quite glad when her father died. However, Poor Communication Kills once again when she reveals that she still loved the dead son. There is a case where the butler ends up being arrested. However, it turns out that it was just a ruse to trick the actual killer into revealing himself. It worked. In episode 2, the butler was the culprit and the kidnapping was a setup to get the father to spend more time with his child, but a second kidnapper actually takes the daughter hostage and asks for ransom money. For the most part, this trope is averted - the Butler or Housekeeper is usually the Exposition Fairy to Conan by providing insight into family drama that family members don't want to reveal. It's outright defied in Billionaire Birthday Blues where The housekeeper has arguably the most visible motive out of anyone in the house - since both victims had been responsible for the death of her granddaughter. The Night Before the Wedding Murder Locked Room inverted this trope by having the butler as the victim.

Ascended Extra: Takagi was originally an unnamed sidekick under Megure in the anime and Canon Immigrant; later show in the manga and ascended to major character status with his long love story with Satou. Conan's wonderful toys tend to have a lot more prominence in the anime, especially the movies (in the manga, the only ones he uses regularly are the watch and the bow-tie). The turbo-powered skateboard that appears in just about every movie and quite a few of the anime-only Filler episodes? It appeared in a grand total of two storylines in the manga, which were more than six hundred chapters apart (it was actually smashed to bits at the end of its debut arc, and for a long time it was implied that Dr. Agasa didn't bother fixing it).

Rule of Three
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_a6cda066
comment
Rule of Three: Whenever there are multiple suspects in a case, there is a great chance that they will come in groups of three, either because there were only three other people to begin with or because Conan or somebody else uses some bit of evidence to narrow it down to that. This is particularly frequent in cases involving public locations and just generally any group of people where the participants were not previously established as related. Usually, there will be a big, gruff guy, a kind of asshole-looking guy, and a meek guy or a woman. Most of the time, the murders are split into three parts, the introduction of the characters & murdered, the investigation, and the revelation of the culprit. Shinichi/Conan also, so far, has used 3 awake people for his acts, 3 detectives, and has three -later four- aides in the detective boys.

comment
Status Quo Is God: Subverted, but only just barely. The plot does move forward and progress is made, but the entire series moves at such glacial pace it might as well be standing still to someone not following it closely. Of course, anything that threatens to cause TOO big a change too quickly is certain to be rolled back almost instantly.

And I Must Scream: Reika in Billionaire Birthday Blues, who was thought to have been missing (or even been the one responsible for the murders), but was actually bound and taped up in a bathtub, with the cover placed over her... while it gradually filled up with water and drowned her. The Suspicious Spicy Curry gives it some strong competition - here, the victim (an old man) is forced to hold a noose just barely aloft with his teeth. As soon as those teeth give out: snap goes his windpipe.

And then there's a subversion... In the "Memories of the Cherry Blossom" case, Shiratori is genuinely saddened when he meets a girl who seemed to be his "girl of destiny" who inspired him to be a policeman, and it turns out she's a Broken Bird/Woman Scorned who has just killed her boyfriend after he screwed her over and tried to use him and the Detective Kids to strengthen her alibi... but soon he finds out she isn't the girl he's been pining for. And he later finds out who she *actually* is.

Adults Are Useless
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_a939d96a
comment
Adults Are Useless: Any and all adults, even if competent detectives or policemen otherwise, are not nearly a match to Conan's lightning deduction (and sometimes the unique benefits of having a child's body). Though Kogoro/Richard gets played like this most of the time as a Clueless Detective, he keeps up with the other adult characters and sometimes surpasses them. With some help, he's shown to be very good. What keeps his talents from flowering are his laziness and impatience, especially his tendency to stick with the very first theory he comes up with. In some cases, he has the edge over Conan, as being older, he has some insight into people's emotions better than Conan/Shinichi (for instance, he can point out the difference between jealousy of a lover or a father). In a number of episodes, Kogoro almost manages to solve the case by himself (with just a little prompting by Conan), but can't quite make the last connection. (And he's actually solved a few without Conan having to step in.) Plenty of times, Kogoro is missing the last connections because Conan finds more evidence... that and these quite elaborate cases are outside of what a lot of detectives would assume and solve. Sometimes, even Conan would be clueless as to how to get the true culprit arrested if it wasn't for a stroke of luck. And when it comes to apprehending correctly-identified criminals or defending innocents, he becomes scarily competent. Especially if said criminals have pissed him off personally or threatened Conan and Ran, or if children are at stake. His black belt in judo isn't just for decoration, and it is revealed in the second non-serial movie The Fourteenth Target that he is an excellent pistol marksman as well. In fact in the 9th movie, Strategy Above the Depths, Kogoro not only figured out who the real murderer was before Shinichi, he got it right, when Shinichi accused someone, being wrong. Sort of. It's hard to explain, it being a Gambit Pileup. Shinichi's and Heiji's fathers are great detectives, even better than their sons, they just basically never show up. Yusaku is just not interested in being a full-time detective, being quite happy as a mystery author, and Heiji's father is probably busy with the administrative kind of police work. Ran's mother, Eri, is pretty effective at being a detective as well. Probably why she's such an effective lawyer. She's just so rarely involved that it doesn't matter.

Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: It's easy to forget about Kogoro's black belt in Judo and marksmanship skills given the way he's portrayed most of the time. He's also got a pretty good head on his shoulders, he just doesn't take time to use it. However, when it's personal, children are at stake, old friends are involved, or the criminal threatens Ran or Conan, he breaks out of it. Takagi also has his moments.

Dramatic Irony
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_ab5eea65
comment
Dramatic Irony: In the June Bride Murder Case (episode 18), the killer attempts to get back at the police officer who accidentally killed his mother years ago by poisoning the officer's daughter via her favorite drink... but after the killer almost succeeds, it's revealed that she was his childhood love, and it was he who got her into drinking Lemon Tea/Punch in the first place, because he'd bring them to her all the time! Thankfully, it does have a better ending, as Conan reveals that the two still got married years later; and that the culprit was given a light sentence because the bride, having already figured out that her husband-to-be was the boy from her memories, willingly drank the poison. Also in the Luxury Liner Serial Murder Case (episodes 22-23), it's rather ironic how the new groom was the person with the most motive to kill the Hatamoto/Hannigan family. The family company bought out the company belonging to his father, who later committed suicide and left him to be put into foster care. He did want to get close to the family at first, but decided to let bygones be bygones after falling in love with his now-wife. The actual killer of course is well aware of who the first suspect would be. Ran not knowing that Conan is really Shinichi counts as this for the whole series, although she does come close to discovering it on more than one occasion.

comment
Weirdness Censor: In order for The Masquerade to be sustained, there are a number of details that the cast is forcibly required to ignore, otherwise the whole charade would fall apart rather quickly. With time, most of these have been either lampshaded to death or even seriously acknowledged by the cast. Kogoro's (and occasionally Sonoko's) "habit" of collapsing to the ground and delivering brilliant deductions while appearing soundly asleep, especially after spending most of the investigation making inaccurate and counter-productive guesses, was at best only treated as "quirky" for a long while. Eventually, he earned the nickname of "Sleeping Kogoro" for this, to the point where most of the people assisting the investigation eagerly await the moment of sudden inspiration, and find it strange when he solves cases without falling asleep. The first time this happens in front of Officer Satou, she is unable to resist playing with Kogoro's mouth, and afterward Conan is extremely reluctant to put Kogoro to sleep in front of her again because he is afraid she will notice Kogoro isn't really talking. Following the previous point, Kogoro and Sonoko never had much of an issue taking credit for deductions they have no recollection of. Both cases are somewhat handwaved as ego-stroking and, in Kogoro's case, a simple "Meh, whatever" attitude where he doesn't care so long as the job is done. He eventually becomes vaguely aware of his unexplained bouts of somnolence, believing that he has an subconscious alter-ego solving his cases for him. Conan's involvement in the investigations, particularly him wandering around the crime scenes finding or noticing things, was for a long time treated as simply annoying behaviour from a nosy kid. Unlike the previous two points, this became an actually recognized point when several characters became aware that the stuff he comes up with tends to be important and ends up leading everyone else with the investigations. Satou was the first adult to consider him useful, and eventually Ran, Megure, Takagi and others accepted it as well. Nevertheless, Heiji is still the only one who actually drew the right conclusion from it instead of simply treating it as quirky.

Jack the Ripoff: A man is murdered in a similar modus operandus as a serial killer whose original slayings neared the Statute of Limitations, but Conan deduces that the victim was the murderer, killed by one of the victim's' vengeful family members through the victim's Dying Clue. ( The dead man put blood on the CTRL and C keys and died grabbing the mouse by its cord to imply that the murderer was a copycat.) It was defied in the Naniwa Serial Murder arc, when Heizo, like what the trope page's lead mentioned, withheld some information from the press (Namely, a knife was stabbed through the victims' wallets) so that he was sure further incidents were not due to this trope.

Chapter 594 is a rare case of this for the manga.

Ten Little Murder Victims: In volume 30, Captain Ersatzes of famous detectives were invited to an abandoned mansion (together with Conan, Ran and Kogoro) and die off one by one. Only one of them actually died. The rest faked their deaths once they deduced who the real killer was in order to Pull the Thread on her.

The London case isn't exactly Revenge by Proxy since it's revealed that the reason Minerva lost the match was because her mother wasn't at the match and therefore the mother is to blame.

Aerith and Bob: In the dub, the children of Oscar Hotta are Ryan, Kevin, Karen...and Famke. Famke? While yes, technically it's a real name of Dutch origins, it's so uncommon they might as well have just kept her original name, Fumiko. In the original, "Conan" is definitely not a normal Japanese Name let alone being spelled with "C" instead of "K". One of the episode also features a suspect named "Moyono", an extremely unusual female name. "Ai" is the Kanji Version: no one in the right mind would use the Kanji for "sorrow" as their child name. Taken Up to Eleven in the first Latin-American Spanish dub, which sometimes used very old-fashioned and never-used-in-this-era names. i.e, Miyuki Hyuuga's dub name was "Penélope", a name that younger people have probably never heard of outside of Hamtaro...

comment
Subverted in "The Forgotten Bond" (episode 121-122/chapter 197-199): Mindy/Masayo murdered her sister Maya/Miina because she believed that she had knowingly stolen her boyfriend Kenneth/Kenji (which also was the corollary of Miina having spent years imitating her, something that Masayo at first found cute but later thought of as creepy), but the truth was that Kenji fell for Miina all on his own. Miina didn't want Masayo's feelings to be hurt by the fact that Kenji had chosen her over Masayo so she pretended that she had seduced Kenji. A good sister until the end, when Masayo sent her to buy two bottles of cleaning solution (which she intended to mix together and create the poisonous gas that would kill Miina), Miina read the label at the counter, realized that the two chemicals could be dangerous if mixed together, and switched one of them out, not wanting to put her sister's life in danger. Once Conan reveals this, the killer has a My God, What Have I Done? moment and breaks down crying over her victim's body, begging her to wake up.

Impairment Shot (Volume 9, Ran was nearly drowned after being drugged. She assumed that her savior was Shinichi {It was him, as Conan, before the whole Improbable Antidote incident.) This also occurs whenever anyone in the anime goes back and forth when they were being shrunk by Apotoxin or going back with Baiganr. with funky colors and blurred outlines. The manga has a negative version of the outlines and is either black or white, besides when Shinichi first became Conan and Aoyama decided to show his eyes wide and his entire form literally steaming as his insides 'melted', leaving you to wonder exactly how that feels.)

Berserk Button: Among all the murderers and criminals he deals with, Conan absolutely loathes Yanderes and Cute Psychos. Criminals of such types often get the most scathing, harsher "Shut Up, Hannibal!" speeches from him. Any time Kid pretends to be Shinichi, and ESPECIALLY when he flirts with Ran, Conan nearly blows his cover in his rage. Actually, anyone flirting with Ran or suggesting it gets the Glare of Death. He can be THAT much of a Crazy Jealous Guy over her. At same time, Ran gets quite peeved when she thinks that Shinichi may be committing infidelity (even though they're not in a relationship). Say what you will about Kogoro, but if there's one thing he truly cannot stand, it's being either tricked, double-crossed, or used as an Unwitting Pawn.

Clueless Detective
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_bda72a5e
comment
Though Kogoro/Richard gets played like this most of the time as a Clueless Detective, he keeps up with the other adult characters and sometimes surpasses them. With some help, he's shown to be very good. What keeps his talents from flowering are his laziness and impatience, especially his tendency to stick with the very first theory he comes up with. In some cases, he has the edge over Conan, as being older, he has some insight into people's emotions better than Conan/Shinichi (for instance, he can point out the difference between jealousy of a lover or a father). In a number of episodes, Kogoro almost manages to solve the case by himself (with just a little prompting by Conan), but can't quite make the last connection. (And he's actually solved a few without Conan having to step in.) Plenty of times, Kogoro is missing the last connections because Conan finds more evidence... that and these quite elaborate cases are outside of what a lot of detectives would assume and solve. Sometimes, even Conan would be clueless as to how to get the true culprit arrested if it wasn't for a stroke of luck. And when it comes to apprehending correctly-identified criminals or defending innocents, he becomes scarily competent. Especially if said criminals have pissed him off personally or threatened Conan and Ran, or if children are at stake. His black belt in judo isn't just for decoration, and it is revealed in the second non-serial movie The Fourteenth Target that he is an excellent pistol marksman as well. In fact in the 9th movie, Strategy Above the Depths, Kogoro not only figured out who the real murderer was before Shinichi, he got it right, when Shinichi accused someone, being wrong. Sort of. It's hard to explain, it being a Gambit Pileup.

No Longer with Us: When Conan first finds out who Ai really is, he demands to know what she's doing at the professor's house. Ai replies that the professor is "no longer in this world". Conan attempts to call Agasa using his cell phone, but the line is dead. Conan barges into his house... and sees him on the internet. Of course, this was written in 1997, when most people still used dial-up.

Chaste Hero: While it may just be part-Single-Target Sexuality for Ran and part-Squick, since the girls involved either were or had the body of seven year olds, it's still worth noting that the only thing Conan noticed upon running into a women's hot spring where Ayumi & Haibara had already stripped down was the male dead body. Also, upon realizing why the one who was older than she looked was upset about the incident, Conan thought "I only saw your butt" would reassure her. It... didn't.

Ill Girl
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_c235ac60
comment
Ill Girl: In general, Ill Girls are used as a motive and Ill Boys are character attributes in this series. Female Examples: A strange variation happened in one case: our Villain of the Week had a bad heart, but it was she who killed the loan shark who drove her boyfriend to suicide over the money for "that operation." (See Finger-Licking Poison for the murder itself.) God, is she a bitchy chain smoker. In her confession, she mentions that her boyfriend was her Morality Pet and the only one who ever loved her after her parents's deaths. As Orihime of This Very Wiki says, be careful when threatening an Ill Girl's loved ones: if she gets better, she'll kill you! In another (filler) case, this was played heartbreakingly straight with Kaori, a young girl whose brother Toshiya Todakoro is the ghost writer for the Victim of the Week, writer Daisuke Torakura, who used to pay for her hospital bills in exchange for the guy's hard work. We later learn the horrible truth: Kaori actually died six months ago, because Torakura actually bribed her doctor into keeping her on painkillers only instead of paying for crucial and expensive treatment abroad (as per his end of the bargain), so Todakuro would remain as his subordinate indefinitely. This lack of treatment ultimately killed her. And when poor Todakuro found out from the guilt-ridden nurse who used to tend to the girl, he went nuts with grief and murdered Todakura. Male Examples: Prominent enough to have them listed on the character sheet.

Karma
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_c34a39ab
comment
The culprit in episode 599, "A Friend of Justice", actually literally did call his act of murder karma (having found out that the murder victim bilked a friend of his out of a great deal of money, leading to her death of shock—though he was ordinarily a kindly and forgiving man, this he could not forgive). However, in a rare example of Call It Karma turning into real Karma, it turned out that the friend had actually forgiven the con men, because of the example the murderer himself had earlier set in being forgiving toward people. In his rage after finding out how his friend had been conned in her diary, he hadn't read her final entry. (Further, one of the surviving con men broke down in tears after finding out the woman had forgiven him.)

There Is Only One Bed: Actually, there's two but Ran chooses to sleep with Conan one night anyway because she's damn scared after a murder. That actually saves her from being killed as well; the Killer Of The Week attacks her in her sleep since Ran supposedly knows something she shouldn't about the aforementioned murder, but Conan manages to wake Ran up in time and they jump away from danger.

Aesop Amnesia: During the episodes in which Ran suspects Conan is secretly Shinichi, she treats him with more respect, runs interference for him to investigate, and just generally pays more attention to what he has to say. But let him convince her the resemblance was all in her imagination, and she is back to scolding him for "interfering" in Kogoro's investigations again. At one point Kogoro is told by the doctor to stop drinking so much—and for a few episodes he actually does. But not long afterward, he is back to boozing as heavily as usual.

Anime Accent Absence
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_c4a5ca4
comment
Anime Accent Absence: Americans in this series speak more or less fluent Japanese, peppered with Gratuitous English. There is some justification for this, though it's mostly glossed over. Almost all of the Americans (and foreigners, come to thing of it) that are frequently encountered are drawn from either the FBI, the CIA, or the Black Organization. All of these organizations would require their agents to fluently speak other languages, as accents are very distinctive characteristics of an individual's voice. They can give away a lot of information to the informed mind. Like Conan, for one. Subverted in the London Arc episodes, where all the English Speaking characters speak in Queen's English (and only a few speak Japanese when justified to) while the Japanese characters speak in accented but understandable English and Japanese.

Even more so, there's a backstory to the myth of the Goddess, and it also brings up the trope. According to it, a Naïve Everygirl named Koharu received a trunk of beautiful kimonos as thanks from a daimyo whose life she saved. The jealous daughters of the village leader accused her of theft to get them, and poor Koharu was executed. That same night, the two girls were found dead — also in carefully-arranged scenes involving these kimonos, which were supposedly caused by Koharu's soul which had become a vengeful spirit. To appease her, she was from then on referred to as the Kimono Goddess.

Strong Family Resemblance
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_c5fe6c81
comment
Strong Family Resemblance: Yuusaku and his son Shinichi look almost exactly the same (Yuusaku has glasses and a funky mustache, Shinichi has a cowlick and a pointy rat-tail). The same goes for Kaitou Kid and Shinichi; even though nobody knows whether or not they're related. Supposedly, Gosho Aoyama has said that the resemblance between them is not a coincidence. Subverted in "The Culprit is Genta's Dad": The Kojima adult who looks most like Genta turns out to be the culprit but not Genta's father. Genta turns out to look nothing at all like his father—he takes after his mother. Also a very important plot point in the Naniwa Murder case: Yusuke Sakata's huge physical resemblance to his Disappeared Dad Inaba makes a Serial Killer blurt out the truth about Inaba's strange death 20 years ago, allowing Yusuke to start a serial murder spree to punish whoever had a hand on it. And on the other hand, seeing a picture of Inaba is what allows Heiji and then Conan to unmask Yusuke as the Sympathetic Murderer.

It Runs in the Family: Shinichi's father is the mystery writer who does not investigate because he is Brilliant, but Lazy; Heiji's father is a well-known police investigator; Ai's parents were scientists; and even Ran's parents were highly proficient in martial arts. This made the Author Filibuster in the sixth Non-Serial Movie pretty weak, as Nozawa borrowed the mouths of Ai and Hiroki (whose father is also a proficient programmer) to do that.

Criminal Mind Games
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_c895f927
comment
Criminal Mind Games: A number of episodes (especially the longer TV specials) involve some criminal leaving a trail of clues—either because they secretly want to be caught and stopped, or because they're just Ax-Crazy. For whatever reason, many of these seem to involve bombs. One TV special had Conan and Heiji running all over a baseball stadium to try to catch a would-be stadium bomber who sent them clues via abandoned mobile phones with a specific time limit to find the next one. "Trembling Metropolitan Police Headquarters: 12 Million Hostages" involved a mad bomber who sent a clue to his next target to the timer screen of his current bomb…seconds before its detonation. This one culprit did it as part of a Sadistic Choice; Either one of the police he hated so much would die to get the hint, or they'd defuse the bomb, saving their own life and dooming hundreds of innocents. The London Arc had a bomber leaving a trail of Sherlock-Holmes-themed clues all over London for Conan to chase down in order to stop his next bombing.

Little Old Lady Investigates
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_c897338a
comment
Little Old Lady Investigates: In episode 219, Kogoro is invited to a gathering of other famous detectives in the adult category as opposed to Shinichi's teen detective peers. Numbered among them is a little old lady detective who seems to have worked frequently with the two-fisted man of action private detective perhaps because their opposite strengths combine effectively. Turns out that the "little old lady" was the killer after all. For extra information, Heiji was invited, but couldn't make it, as was Hakuba, who we actually got to see with a gun. Which was both awesome and freaky, given he pretends to threaten a female detective while being as chivalrous as possible—and then was seemingly shot himself.

Clock Discrepancy: Also happens occasionally; once, a police officer realized that his roommate was up to no good because he kept all of his clocks 5 minutes fast to make sure he was never late to work, but the roommate reset the clocks to read accurately as part of his plot to fudge with his alibi. (Fortunately, more substantial proof of guilt is also found.)

NoseBleed
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_cbca6ae2
comment
In an early episode we have one of the more memorable scenes where Ran and a rather shaken Conan return from the springs after they bathe together. Kogoro notices that Conan is unusually quiet and, when Ran tells him what they've been doing, he wonders out loud if he's dumsbtruck after seeing Ran naked, and Conan has an epic Nose Bleed at the suggestion. Later the episode, we have Kogoro: This time, both the victim and the murderer were dear friends of Kogoro, so he goes into a full It's Personal mode and we get to see that with a bit of nudging from Conan (who wanted to solve it at first but was moved by the other's determination), Kogoro can solve cases by himself. The bathing scene actually gets a nice Continuity Nod a little later in the manga. When Ran accuses Conan of being Shinichi, a number of newly embarrassing scenes from the earlier stories flood back. The memory of her bathing totally naked with Conan certainly explains the strength of her anger and embarrassment. Additionally, in the anime Yukiko tells Conan that it's a good thing Ran didn't find out who he was "because had she realised you took a bath with her as a kid..."

Beyond the Impossible: Usually averted, as Conan is down-to-Earth and stays true to its 'no magic or super natural' setting. However one of the openings shows Kaitou Kid ''stealing the moon.'' it's meant to be symbolic, but still. Then again, Akako appears to be in the same universe, so it's played with.

Fake-Out Make-Out: Ai Haibara talks one of her classmates into faking intimate contact so she could figure out whether she was being tailed by the Organization, only to scare him with the intense expression on her face. Earlier, Takagi and Satou had pretended to date on a few occasions to tail a suspect (Takagi couldn't enjoy their time together at all because Satou is pretty damn scary when in Work Mode).

Social Services Does Not Exist
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_cf6541ad
comment
Social Services Does Not Exist: Where does one begin? Obviously, Kogoro is alcoholic and is regularly hung over, Conan and Ran are regularly exposed to dead bodies and often extremely violent murder cases once or twice a week, sometimes are the ones who find the dead bodies, are sometimes actually put in danger, are often clearly in view of the police and yet nobody seems to find anything wrong with this. A bit justified though as most of the time this happens it is almost always coincidental and never the direct fault of Kogoro. One can assume the inspector has probably noticed that they don't seem to be too disturbed or injured by it, and has been keeping social services away, especially since Conan seems to be pointing out stuff the police missed. However, Shinichi's parents were no better. They were implied to regularly disappear, Shinichi was living alone for a while (Even if Ran can take care of herself, she at least lived with her dad and had indirect access to her mom), and they actually did show up a few times in disguise to take Conan back only to provide some excuse so Conan can stay with Ran and Kogoro longer.

Eureka Moment: Played straight AND subverted. A lot of Conan's epiphanies come in this way and the Detective Boys' sole reason for existing seems to be triggering these; however Conan later makes a habit of artificially creating these moments to lead others in the investigation. After a while, most of the cast seems to be consciously aware of this, with varying degrees of suspicion.

The few notable exceptions include Misao Yamamura, the thoroughly incompetent inspector from the Gunma prefecture, and, on the other side of the spectrum, Kansuke Yamato and Taka'aki Morofushi, who somewhat get to hop into the Competence Zone and keep up with Conan. The case of the latter two are lampshaded by their Theme Naming; for example Morofushi's name refers to... Zhuge Liang. (Specifically, the characters of Zhuge Liang's courtesy name, Kongming, is read in Japanese as "Koumei"... which also happens to be an alternate reading of the characters in Morofushi's name.)

Everybody Lives: Even without counting the non-Always Murder cases, this happens occasionally, especially if the victim has been hospitalized.note One early filler episode - "The Deadly Cooking Class" notably averts this; the victim is delivered to the paramedics but dies offscreen. If, after the case has been solved, a policeman bursts into the scene saying something along the lines of "Inspector! The victim, (s)he's...", then you can bet that on the next page they will finish with "... going to be alright!" Notable instances are the poisonings of Sayuri Matstumoto and Kiwako Todou.

Hyper-Awareness: Unavoidable since we have Great Detectives here. In one case, Shinichi sees a girl reaching for her murdered boyfriend's bag on a cabin overhead luggage compartment, remembers something, tells her story and then pulls the bag off the compartment. What we notice is the story she told us, what Shinichi notices is that she used her right hand before she told her story, and then she switched to her left hand afterwards. It was important because the murder weapon is a sharp object; the bra worn by the girl is underwired, one piece of which is sharpened. She wears the bra during the scene (since she can't throw it away) and the sharp edge grazed her skin when she raised her hand and hence, she switched to her left hand.

comment
Precocious Crush: The series plays with this trope in regards to its age regressed protagonists. To outsiders, Ayumi's and Mitsuhiko's crushes on Conan and Haibara would be Puppy Love. However Conan and Haibara actually being much older puts it into this trope even if the other two aren't aware of it. Haibara's behavior throughout chapters 925-927, after learning her favorite soccer player Ryusuke Higo is rumored to be dating Yoko Okino, is far more fitting to her grade schooler appearance than her teenage/adult mentality. She deletes Yoko's songs from her phone, hires Kogoro to investigate the affair, and during the inevitable murder case agrees with anything Higo says and disagrees with Yoko, even when they say the same thing. When the case is resolved and the rumors proven false, Higo personally thanks Haibara for her help and even makes a remark about adding her to his team. At the end of the case, Haibara is insisting on playing soccer as the weather turns bad and Conan snarking to himself that a little girl isn't going to join Higo's team.

Absence of Evidence
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_d4f5426
comment
Absence of Evidence: In one episode, the daughter of a wealthy businessman has been kidnapped and Conan figures out who the kidnapper is when he remembers that no one reported hearing the sounds of dogs barking the previous night. The butler who claimed to have witnessed the kidnapping said that the kidnapper climbed down a tree, but the businessman's dogs routinely barked at anyone who got near the tree. Therefore he must be the guilty party. This doubles as a Shout-Out to the Sherlock Holmes story, "Silver Blaze". Again in episode 570 The Crime with Zero Possibility to be Proven, the evidence was destroyed when a robber happen to rob the crime scene which Conan has to resort to in order to reveal that the murderer's sister who believed that the victim was responsible for her misery and death, actually really did love her and tried to become a better person and apologized to the murderer for every bad thing he had done as he promised to her sister before she died. The murderer then confessed and broke down in tears.

Surprisingly Good English: The Americans' voice actors during the anime adaptation of the "3 K's of Osaka" storyline, and the taxi driver in "Shinichi's New York Case". Hattori Heiji's English is almost perfect apart from one or two tiny pronunciation issues—not surprising, as his voice actor learned English from an American exchange student when they stayed at his house during adolescence. In the London arc, most of the dubbers, all the important characters at any rate, speak very good British English.

Magic Antidote
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_d54fa1a6
comment
Magic Antidote: In Heiji's debut episode, Conan is feeling poorly so he gives Conan a dose of Baigar (a kind of alcohol) claiming it to be an old family tradition and a surefire cure for the cold. It does, in fact, make him feel better-so much better, in fact, that it temporarily counteracts the poison and makes him return to his sixteen-year-old self. He literally has just enough time to rush to the scene of the crime of the week, solve it, and rush off so that he can regress again without breaking The Masquerade. He puts two and two together and tries to sneak a larger dose in hopes of permanently returning to normal, but Ran catches him and chases him off, telling him that it's not really good for children and the first time was a special case on account of him being sick. (Later he succeeds in filching the bottle and drains it, but apparently his body has built up a tolerance because all that happens is he gets drunk.) Later, he is able to talk Haibara through using the Baigar antidote (when she is trapped in the liquor storage room of a hotel and needs to be bigger to climb out the chimney), and it forms the subsequent basis of her research into a temporary cure that doesn't require booze to use.

Stage Magician: The mangaka, Aoyama, seems to be a big fan of stage magic, since stage magicians (both professional and amateur) appear as the subject of episodes time and time again. Kaitou Kid is third in a line of famed stage magicians, and his secret identity is known to be a magic fan. Kaito is not actually a 'fan' of magic, but a very good magician himself as thought by his father Toichi, so much so that Nakamori - detective in charge of catching Kid... amongst other things - occasionally calls him to crime scenes to test out their defenses. Little does Nakamori know...

Breakout Character: Ai Haibara. Introduced more later in the manga, Ai has become one of most important characters in the series with more screentime. She is also very loved by fans thanks to her personality and the Ship Tease with Conan.

Fake Ultimate Hero: Conan's deductions are credited to Kogoro, boosting Kogoro's reputation as a detective. Kogoro is typically unconcious, but takes credit when he wakes up regardless. Sonoko will do the same thing whenever Conan has to use her instead.

Puppy Love

comment
The series plays with this trope in regards to its age regressed protagonists. To outsiders, Ayumi's and Mitsuhiko's crushes on Conan and Haibara would be Puppy Love. However Conan and Haibara actually being much older puts it into this trope even if the other two aren't aware of it.

Red Herring

comment
Although not an example of the comedic use of the trope, lots of people break out in cold sweats during the episodes—usually the murderer, or those who are considered suspects. Sometimes the murderer can be picked out by being the only one out of all the suspects who is sweating, but this is often a Red Herring.

Locked Room Mystery
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_dcaa8b35
comment
Locked Room Mystery: Many. And they STILL look shocked every time they discover one. One of the first examples in the series is possibly one of the creepiest ways to go about this - a Japanese diplomat is found poisoned in his office, with opera playing in the background to cover up any noises he made and the key in his trouser pocket. Heiji deducts that the criminal used a simple trick with a piece of string to pull the key into the pocket - but he's actually wrong because this is physically impossible. The murderer (his wife) actually poisoned him when she brought Conan and the gang into the room and set up the Locked Room scenario by unlocking the door to show them in. Shinichi downright called this an application of a psychological locked room.

Cast Herd: With 70+recurring characters, it is needed.

There are times when the herds overlap, though.

Gambit Pileup
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_de9047ac
comment
Gambit Pileup: Volume 26 of the manga, or the "Desperate Revival" arc of the TV series. Dr. Araide's was to make out with Ran, which was ripped apart by Shinichi showing up. Heiji was planning on showing up, dressed as Shinichi, to help him out of Ran's suspicions. This was ruined by Kazuha, who ended up the Spanner in the Works. Haibara's was to have her dress up as his little kid identity, while he tried the prototype antidote, to allude suspicion. Sonoko's, which was spur of the moment, was to get Ran and Shinichi to hook up. This ended up being ruined by the murder. Ran's was using any occurrences to her advantage to get Shinichi to confess, though it wasn't planned out. This was ruined by Haibara's plan. Shinichi was, if you listen to the fans, going to propose to Ran, but this was ruined by the murder. And the second murderer's plans were ruined by Shinichi. The climactic confrontation with Vermouth is also one of these: Vermouth, posing as Dr. Araide, attempted to kidnap Ai—but Ai was under the protection of Jodie, who was trying to lead Vermouth in a trap set by an FBI agent. Except Vermouth figured this out and dismissed the agents while disguised as Jodie and set off her own trap—and this is when Conan dramatically reveals that he's been disguising himself as Ai (while Heiji, elsewhere, pretended to show up as Shinichi). Then Ai herself shows up, intending to turn herself in to the organization, which causes Vermouth to knock Conan out with his own needle. Just as Vermouth is about to shoot Jodie, Ran, who was hiding in the trunk of the car because she saw Jodie's pictures of her friends in the bathroom and assumed that Jodie was spying on the school, jumps out to protect Ai from both Vermouth and the sniper. When Shuichi Akai shows up to take out the sniper and disables Vermouth, Vermouth manages to get away by taking Conan hostage and blowing up the other car. Except Conan had anticipated Vermouth's get away (or at least was Crazy-Prepared) and hooked himself up to a wire to capture the cell phone number Vermouth called. But Vermouth got the last laugh, as she knocked them both out with sleeping gas, then forced herself awake and slipped into the night, but not before destroying Conan's equipment. Phew. The Mystery Train arc features no fewer than five plots going on at once. Believing Sherry is aboard, Gin and Vodka plan to destroy the train at its final stop, Bourbon plans to capture Sherry alive while the train is in motion, while Vermouth plans to kill Sherry while the train is in motion. Kaito Kid is aboard with plans to do a heist on the train, and Conan has a plan to fake Haibara's death should the Organization turn up. To top it off there's the inevitable random murder. In the end, the winner is Conan, by identifying Kid early and blackmailing him into helping his plan. As a result, Kid is chased off the train before he can steal anything, he convinces Bourbon that Sherry was killed so Gin and Vodka call off their plan, Vermouth realizes they were duped only after it's too late to do anything about it, and Conan solves the murder, too.

Alone with the Psycho: Mitsuhiko during his disappearance case (episode 289-290/chapter 358-360). He was with a serial killer (Numabuchi) from Volume 19, who wasn't the killer in the Osaka Serial Murder Case. The actual killer in that was the police officer who used him for the blame. Numabuchi escaped, apparently, from police custody later.

The same episode has Conan realize that a famous romance author is still writing the old "two lovers separated by a column, each thinking he was Stood Up by the other" type of Poor Communication Kills story, which in the modern age isn't possible unless one or both wasn't carrying a cell phone. This turns out to be because the stories are actually ghost-written by the "writer's" brother, a murder suspect who has been hiding in the house's attic for twelve years and hence has not had experience with cell phones.

Dub Name Change

Dub Name Change: Zig-Zagged. In the Funimation dub, where most characters (with the exception of Conan) got American names, however TMS eventually ditched this as recent English material note  such as Conan's appearance in Granblue Fantasy as well the Detective Conan Runner app (renamed Case Closed Runner in some territories including North America) as well as the dubs of the Episode One special, movie 21 (The Crimson Love Letter) and movie 22 (Zero the Enforcer) has kept the original Japanese names and terminology as is with the only remnant of this being Viz Media's translation of the manga. The first Latin American Spanish dub had this note  With Shin'ichi's name being "Bobby Jackson" in that dub and Conan's last name being "Blassy" , but much like in English, this too was dropped in favor of the Japanese names.

There's also Shiratori towards Satou or so he thinks. Satou's a false positive of sorts, and his decades-old feelings are actually for Kobayashi-sensei. However, because Satou and Kobayashi have such similar features, and because Kobayashi idolized police and back then didn't use glasses, Shiratori thought fate was bringing him together with his old love when he ran into Detective Satou. Sorry but no, Shiratori...?

Wedding Deadline: A storyline in revolved around an arranged date between the policewoman Satou and the good-hearted-yet-snobbish superintendent Shiratori. (These dates are called omiai, almost always end up in marriage, and while one can technically refuse the marriage part, doing so is extremely embarrassing for both parts.) Another policewoman, Yumi, tried to get Satou out of it by sending her "help", who Satou correctly guesses to be the shy Takagi, who also loves her and the one she seems to actually favor. The brash Satou makes a deal with Shiratori that if Takagi doesn't show up before sunset, she will marry him. Unfortunately, Takagi is involved in a robbery case, with three witnesses all giving contradicting details on the culprit. Luckily, the main character gives Takagi some tips that helps him solve the case... but the culprit escapes, forcing him to give chase... a few minutes before sundown. In the end, he never actually makes it to the restaurant that Satou and Shiratori are at; the main character uses a decoy to trick both of them into thinking that Takagi actually showed up, then lures Satou to where Takagi actually is.

Calling the Old Man Out: Brutally deconstructed in the Phantom Corpse case ( File 559-561). Short version: a woman abandons her baby at a local Buddhist temple; eighteen years later, she shows up and begs the head monk to let her see her son, claiming to have kept tabs on him from afar the whole time. Not only does she fail to pick her son out of a photo album of all the temple's monks, she didn't even realize the apprentice monk who brought the album was her son. Subsequently, the head monk gave her a massive "The Reason You Suck" Speech, which broke her so badly she killed herself right in the temple, a fact the head monk spends the story desperately trying to hide from her son.

Star-Crossed Lovers: Ran and Shinichi. While their feelings have been kinda wavering for quite the time, as time passed they grew stronger and Shinichi managed to give Ran a Love Confession in London - but Shinichi has been trapped in the body of a little boy (the titular Conan) for 95% of the story and cannot openly tell Ran who he is, lest she and his friends will be targeted by the same evil organization that shrunk him. In the meantime, poor Ran waits for Shinichi's return... A certain case gives us Hideomi and Miyuki. When Hideomi was a teen, his and his best friend's Deadly Prank killed Miyuki's parents and he barely managed to save her, but was physically scarred and wrecked with guilt. He tried to help her as much as he could in the following years, trying to atone for his terrible mistake... and when Miyuki gave him a Love Confession despite knowing what he had done, he crossed the Despair Event Horizon and commited suicide. In the backstory, we have Shuichi Akai and Akemi Miyano. He began dating her at first to strengthen his position in the Black Organization but fell in love for real with her, yet when he was found out and he told her to come with him, she couldn't leave because she didn't want to abandon her little sister Shiho/Ai. Few time later, she was murdered. Another case is Raita Banba and Hatsune Kamon. They were a couple to be wedded the day after the case, and shared hobbies, interests, a birthday, had the same blood group, were both orphaned in the same fire, and could even tell what the other was thinking of. So much so that Hatsune Kamon started to want to know the reason why and had a genetic testing. The results came in just as she returned to the restaurant from the nail salon- they were twins and thus could not get married. She kills herself in despair.

One arc humorously applied this; Eri Bound and Gagged Kogoro on his sofa, and while Eri was out with Ran and Conan, Kogoro complained about a Potty Emergency... When they came back, they noticed a strange smell from the sofa, which Kogoro said was "dog pee."

Clingy Jealous Girl
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_eb5b71fe
comment
Clingy Jealous Girl: Kazuha gets a little irrational when she believes that Heiji is seeing someone else; Kazuha's first scene in the anime has her confronting Ran because she believed Heiji was interested in her. She's most embarrassed when Ran cleared it up. And in her second appearance, she even gets irritated because Ran is wearing a similar outfit with Heiji. Ran, too, gets terrifyingly intense whenever any perceived infidelity on Shinichi's part pops up. Ayumi is similarly jealous of Ai's relationship with Conan until Ai assures her she doesn't care about Conan in that way.

Crossover
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_eb6da8ef
comment
Crossover: Lupin III vs. Detective Conan. There's also a full crossover movie. The 11th Non-Serial Movie's opening gambit involves a Fake Crossover wherein it turns out that the robbers in a car chase are wearing Lupin and Fujiko masks and Satou is a fan of the manga ("How dare he wear the mask of my first love?"). For that matter, the Lupin III crossover special probably also counts as "fake", from the point of view of overall series continuity. When Lupin is a manga in the movie and a person in the special, and the TV series tends to use Lawyer-Friendly Cameo names to refer to other TV shows ("Kamen Yaiba", "Urban Hunter", "Gomera"), it's hard to tell what Lupin's relationship is to the "main" Conan continuity. Possibly intentional, given Lupin has Negative Continuity, this may be carrying over for when he appears to Conan.

Jerkass
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_eb8e4fa8
comment
Also subverted in the Karaoke Murder case. The murderer was the manager of the band, who killed the lead singer for insulting her constantly, despite the fact that they had been going out when they were younger, and she still loved him, to the point that she got plastic surgery, wanting to look nicer for him. Unfortunately, he hated the fact that she'd changed who she was for him. Not knowing how to say this, he started being a Jerkass to her, eventually leading to her killing him. To add insult to injury note (...so to speak...) It was revealed he had written a new song for her, planning to tell her everything. Ouch. Also subverted in the "Kaitou Kid and the Four Masterpieces" case. After losing the ability to paint following the death of his wife, the culprit planned to only have a set of three paintings. However, because his father-in-law had scammed people into buying the third piece (in order to help pay for the wife's medical treatment), they needed a fourth painting. The culprit plans to claim the painting has been stolen by Kaitou Kid, but the father-in-law tells him that if he didn't find a way to make a fourth painting, that he would have a plan of his own. Thinking that his father-in-law plans to reveal the truth, he kills him. After the truth about the murder comes out, the culprit learns that his father-in-law had been practicing painting with his mouth (having injured his hand) in order to imitate the culprit's art style so that he could give the culprit a fourth painting to sell. The culprit is appropriately horrified when he learns this.

Snap Back
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_ec911c96
comment
Snapback: With few notable exceptions (such as Heiji Hattori, or members of the Organization), whenever anyone notices Conan is significantly smarter than he should be or that most of Kogoro's deductions while awake come from hints dropped by Conan, they invariably forget about it by the end of the episode. For example: In "Trembling Metropolitan Police Headquarters: 12 Million Hostages" (when Takagi and Conan are trapped in an elevator with a bomb and believe they're going to die), after Conan has demonstrated a remarkable degree of intelligence and maturity, Takagi asks Conan "who [he] really [is]". (And Conan replies, "I'll tell you…in the next life!") However, nothing is ever made of this after the episode is over—Takagi drops right back into oblivious Butt-Monkey mode. In one two-hour episode where Ran suspects Conan is Shinichi, she observes that he is always "coming up with things" and makes a point of interceding with Kogoro to give him free reign to make his deductions—even lending him a pen to make notes. However, in subsequent episodes (the rest of the series thus far) she is back to scolding Conan for wandering around and "interfering with Kogoro's investigations", and picking him up and hustling him away whenever a police officer complains about a little kid at the crime scene. In another episode where she suspects Conan of being Shinichi because his cellphone beeped when she sent Shinichi an email, she notices how Conan is stage-managing the investigation through hint-dropping—but again seems to forget all about it after she is convinced she was mistaken. It is very much an either-or proposition: outside of the episodes where she suspects Conan is Shinichi, Ran by and large fails to take notice of his unusual intelligence—or if she does, it is trumped by his young age. This was somewhat averted after a long while. Many of the less-oblivious characters around Conan (and some guest investigators from other precincts) eventually came to realize that he keeps noticing useful stuff and that things he tends to say (supposedly) at random end up leading them on to solve the cases. Satou caught onto his usefulness almost immediately (and is so sharp in general that Conan has come to realize he dares not pull the "Sleeping Kogoro" act when she is around lest he risk her catching on). The "death" of Noah's Ark in the sixth Non-Serial Movie can be said as a minor example, to prevent the risk of adding in another Canon Immigrant as people who knew Conan's secret are, otherwise, important characters.

Kidnapped from Behind: When Conan is escaping from the woman who claimed to be his mother and then revealed herself that she's affliated with the Black Organization, Conan notices Professor Agasa in front of the latter's house. Right when Conan is about to call him, the woman narcotizes him from behind and kidnaps him, bringing him to an abandoned house where she and her masked partner are discussing their next murder. In the end, after a series of shenanigans, it turns out that his kidnappers were his real parents who pulled a prank on him.

Shrine to the Fallen: In one case, Conan deduces that the name placard of such a shrine is the hiding place of a valuable stamp. In 'And Then There Were No Mermaids', Heiji and Kazuha almost fall to their deaths investigating a memorial rock that has incense placed on it. In yet another, a similar rock commemorating the drowning of a young boy is the plot point to the mystery.

Worthless Treasure Twist
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_edf841f6

Worthless Treasure Twist: Played with several times. One case had a mansion where the treasure was the view from a hidden window. On Conan revealing this, the villain had a complete breakdown over all they had done to find it - including mass murder and disfiguring their own face. Another episode had the treasure be the experience of the journey to find it...except there was also a real treasure as some robbers had been hiding their gains in the same spot. In the 11th Non-Serial Movie, Jolly Roger in the Deep Azure, the "pirate treasure" of Anne Bonny and Mary Read turns out to be a hidden but empty pirate ship, built by Anne while waiting for Mary to get out of prison, which crumbles to bits upon being exposed to outside air.

Translation Train Wreck: Literally. In the German dub of The Time-Bombed Skyscraper (Movie 1) Conan says the bombs on the train tracks do not explode if a train goes 200 km/h or more. This is in fact a translation error, because in all other occasions it is said that the subway trains had to go 60 km/h. It has to be further noted that the Tokyo Metro 6000 series seen in this movie has a maximum speed of 100 km/h.

Identical Stranger
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_f27ec906
comment
Identical Stranger: Several. Shinichi Kudou and Kaitou Kid. Also Okito, the high school kendo champion. There are so many Shinichi look-alikes it's not even funny anymore. Invoked by the one murderer who underwent plastic surgery so he could ruin Shinichi's reputation. In the Lupin III vs. Detective Conan crossover, Ran and Princess Mira look enough alike that Mira makes Ran her unwilling royal double for a while —and then Ran is drugged and taken back to Vespania to continue the role. The Detective Boys' schoolteacher Kobayashi-sensei has an uncanny resemblance to Officer Satou with glasses. Only way to tell them physically apart is Kobayashi's hair is straight trimmed on the side, while Satou's isn't. In later manga issues (ep. 568-9 of the TV show), Shiratori realizes that his affection for Satou was misplaced because he had met a police-obsessed Kobayashi at a bookstore when they were both children, and had subsequently mistaken the adult Satou for her. At one point, Satou doubles for Kobayashi to take care of a stalker who wanted Kobayashi dead for witnessing his crimes. There's another person who looked like Satou, Nami Kasakura, whom Shiratori met just before Kobayashi. Bad thing, she was the killer of the case There are two people who superficially look like Kogorou, both pretending to be him for various reasons. Poor Yamamura, believing that his idol would be Driven to Suicide.

Easily Forgiven
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_f36c4f98
comment
Easily Forgiven: Shinichi tends to forgive people more easily, when their actions haven't killed anyone yet, are based on misunderstandings, and/or the perpetrator is regretting their actions. He will then keep quiet and not report anything to the police, if that is the wish of the victim as well. In Chapter 78-80, the victim forgives the culprit, her fiancé, quickly, as she understands that he poisoned her out of revenge for his mother (he also regretted it after learning that they are each other's first loves). He also got a lighter sentence, because she knew her drink was poisoned and she drank it willingly. Three years later, they finally married. In Chapter 163-165, a woman poisons her stepbrother's fiancée out of jealousy. However, she is aware that she was just a Hopeless Suitor and killing her future sister-in-law would only make her brother unhappy. After her victim is saved and wakes up, she apologizes for subjecting her fiancé to a Secret Test of Character, unknowingly hurting the feelings of the perpetrator. In Chapter 322-324, a pop star attacked her former band member, because she thought her friend was about to marry the man she loves. The victim only wanted to make the man she really loves jealous, and didn't inform the culprit of it. Almost killing her friend drives the culprit to suicide, which Conan barely prevents. In Chapter 801-803, a man stabs his wife in the chest, because he is fed up with her mood-swings and because she destroyed his relationships with his friends and co-workers behind his back. However, he is relieved to see her surviving, then feels guilty for stabbing her and making it look like self-defense to get away with it, which makes him want to kill himself (which Haibara and Conan prevent). In truth, his wife was just concerned that, since her husband has a very rare blood type, activities like mountain climbing are dangerous and can injure him, and his friends then decided to not invite him to protect him, his (female) co-workers actually wanted more than just friendship, and her mood-swings happen because she is pregnant.

Drives Like Crazy

Drives Like Crazy: Kogoro is called out for being a bad (though not necessarily "like crazy") driver in a number of episodes, beginning all the way back in episode 2. (He rents cars rather than owning one, and hence does not have as many opportunities for practice.) Shinichi's mother, Yukiko, also drives like crazy but at the opposite end of the spectrum: she is an expert driver in all respects (perhaps as a result of her roles as an action movie heroine), but drives only high-performance sports cars and believes that speed limits only apply to other people ("Shinichi's New York Case," "Secret of Tohto Studio"). Officer Satou is another crazy-good driver whose unmarked patrol car is a high-speed sports car. She has the endearing habit of screaming at the top of her lungs because it helps her concentration when she drifts around curves.

Faking the Dead
 Detective Conan (Manga) / int_f9876f7e
comment
Okiya Subaru being more than he seems was a long-running thread. Simply put, he is Akai Shuuichi. Starting from the beginning can already be confusing... the FBI had Rena Mizunashi/Kir under surveillance in the hospital, but the Black Organization wanted to bust her out and bring her back into their folds. Rena made a plan with Shuuichi and Conan for her to return to the organization has a double-double-agent (having originally infiltrated as a CIA undercover agent), under the condition that her original CIA-goal took higher importance than their goal. She rejoins and Gin demands that Kir meet up with Shuuichi and kill him. She does by shooting him in the head, Akai Shuuichi is pronounced officially dead, and Okiya Subaru entered the scene. Hundreds of chapters later, Akai Shuuichi turns out to be alive — Conan had a plan with Shuuichi that started before Reina was returned to the organization. The organization had a henchman checking hospitals for Rena's presence, and Conan made up an excuse to get the henchman to touch his cellphone, who used his right hand for this. At one point, Shuuichi touches Conan's phone with his right hand as well, which Jodie later uses to determine fingerprints found of the corpse believed to be Shuuichi. The plan was that Shuuichi put glue on his fingertips to prevent his prints from touching anything, so that he can fake his death, which allows Rena to keep staying in the organization without suspicion, and takes a long-standing target off of Shuuichi's back. This explains Shuuichi's words when Rena met up with him to kill him. Shuuichi said, "Who would have thought it would come to this"... meaning how impressed he is that Conan figured out the resulting steps of the organzation, including that Vermouth (and Bourbon) would take turns apperaing as 'Scar Akai Shuuichi' to see if Akai Shuuichi really was dead, and believing it to be true based on the FBI agents' reactions. And Conan even went further, making sure that Akai Shuuichi appears alive at a time when Amuro/Bourbon is checking if Okiya Subaru is Akai Shuuichi disguised. Sheesh!
