Top 10 Best Detective Conan Characters

The Top Ten
1 Ai Haibara

Ok so I just don't get why that people are calling Haibara a crybaby. Like she has only cried at most 3 times in the series. Bruh if you are going to call her a crybaby then what do you call Ran? Ultra crybaby? Don't get me wrong I like Ran as well but I just don't get why people are giving false information and supporting details. That just makes your attempt to prove your point harder. If you do not like a character I am not against it, but it would be better to respect other people's opinions. It's disrespectful that you are not doing that. How do you think the people that support Haibara feel? Put yourself in their shoes guys. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Haibara does have many haters and supporters, the supporters are always kind in expressing their opinions but when it comes to haters, they are always rude. Take this however you want, but keep in mind that I will never let you change my mind. I will not waste any more time on the disrespectful people. Even if you ...more

I'm very glad that she's above Shinichi, honestly, she definitely deserves it. A personal opinion here: Shinichi is a reckless idiot, who's really smart, yes, and not afraid to flaunt it off too. I mean, he's chased by a big bad organization. Chasing after criminals and making a new spotlight for himself is just...dumb. Haibara is much better. She had the brains, but she had enough common sense to bottle it up. And she's kind, too. Even though it's not her fault in any way that she's borned into BO, her guilt complex, suicidal tendencies, paranoia, everything is just well thought and incredible. Brave and readily sacrifices herself for people, careful and calculating; she's Conan upgraded.

She is the best. The absolute best. She is a complex, complex character, and I dare say; more than Conan himself. She had tons of layer, from snarky and paranoid and stoic and deep philosophic and self loathing and this is probably why people had such different views on her. All her actions are perfectly justified and calculated (unlike some reckless characters I can name). Her character boldly shows signs of self loathing and suicidal tendencies, which I just adore. It was rare something like that is shown that boldly in an anime, and I think it's about time.

I really LOVE her. She's the reason I watch DC. She's been thought a lots but never back down. Always cares for others before herself. Some people will hate her, I don't mind, everyone got haters. But if you say you hate her cause she's the third wheel between Ran and Shinichi, and she's not important and shouldn't be in the story or that she's weak or stupid,...? what, where's the proof that she's standing between Ran and Shin, yes, we can say that she likes him but she never says it and tries to seperate Ran and Shin. She's not important and stupid.. Excuse me, without her there would be no DC, without her Conan will never can have a chance, a hope that he could be back to Shinichi, without her Conan will never can know anything about B.O, without her there will be no Shuichi or Amuro or Sera... She's like the main character in the movie. And she's weak, oh come on guys, really, WEAK? She's the strongest girl throughout the whole movie, she doesn't cry every time she misses someone, ...more

2 Kudo Shinichi Jimmy Kudo, known in Japan and internationally as Shinichi Kudo, is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the manga series Case Closed and its adaptations, created by Gosho Aoyama.

Wait why is he 2nd? Yeah he doesn't really show up in the anime but that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to be 1st place. Shinichi can put the police to shame (I hope that doesn't sound too harsh), he is super cute (funny thing is he is my anime crush but I ship him with Ran so much), a great soccer player and would do anything to help Ran.

He deserves to be 1st along with Ran being 2nd! :D

This is insane! shinichi should be at the first place you know!. not that I hate haibara but it's the truth if he is not the main character specially with his kid's body do you think the movie would be great! if it was not because of his intelligence do you think shinichi would become the main character! I mean ughhh!
oh I forgot haibara, well it's true that he is good but are you the creator of this movie for you to say that he is the MOST PERFECT. Tsss... how stupid

Huahahaa my future husband! How can he be in the second? I think he was the best character in detective conan! Come on, look at him. Smart, handsome, great at soccer, and he can do anything! (Except singing). He was the cool one!

WHAT...?! Kudo Shinichi is the 2nd?! How can that be? I mean, look at him! He's a super smart guy, cool, loves cases, hot, and so much more..! This is perfectly why a lot o people likes him

3 Kaitou Kid

COME ON DUDE! KAITO KID! He's just amazing, totally my favourite character in the series, and also my crush. He's funny, EXTREMELY talented, master of disguise and escape, and just overall AWESOME. I mean, even Shinichi hasn't been able to catch him. He's like the villain who everyone loves, since he's not even technically a thief, he returns all the stuff. I also love his costume, the white cape and the monocle. In conclusion, he really deserves more attention.

He is really smart, sometimes smarter than Kudo, plus he is talented, with all his disguises. Thus, sometime I wish Kid would end up with Ai if she wouldn't get Kudo-kun.

Minna. Kaito supposed to be top 3 or 5 something like that. He's an adoloscent thief who make the anime more interesting. He's hot, handsome etc. You should have watch him more often. Although he's a thief but he something help conan/shinichi. Sorry for my bad english. Hehe

OOOH my most favorite character, but as he got own anime, I would vote for him there as number 1, here I gave vote to Conan... more detective conan character :D... He is funny and hot and just awesome character. He and Conan, I would hug them.

4 Heiji Hattori

He's a great guy, and really loyal to his friends! His friendship with Shinchi is really heartwarming too, I smile whenever I see him in the anime and I love watching them solve cases together!

He is the most perfect character in the series without being completely perfect. He makes mistakes, he's impulsive and rash, but he's one of the most genuine characters in the show. He's incredibly talented, but has faults, unlike many of the other perfect characters in the show that come off as robotic with their perfection. Heiji is and always will be my favorite.

Heiji, completely. I really think he's one of the only ones that Shinichi can trust his life with, and I think he might trust him even more than Ran. He'd do almost anything to help him and would protect him with his life. Heiji is the best!

I like him a lot, he is smart but isn't perfect and can be sympathetic at the same time he's super dense regarding love stuff but he's really reliable. One of the best characters in the show he isn't flawless but that's what make him adorable.

5 Edogawa Conan Jimmy Kudo, known in Japan and internationally as Shinichi Kudo, is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the manga series Case Closed and its adaptations, created by Gosho Aoyama.

Whaatt?! How come he's number 5?! The smaller version of Shinichi is still smart and cool! Not to mention he's more cuter!

Conan is basically cleverer than kudo shinichi because he is smaller but he still as clever as shinichi. but still like ai haibara better

Who ever voted for any of the characters above is wrong. Edogawa Conan is the BEST.

Conan is cool! I like him more than Shinichi, he seems more mature to me..

6 Ran Mouri

Of course for me, ran is the best character in detective conan. Why I think like that? Watch again episode 345, there's a moment when ran saves haibara and protect her from vermouth. She so brave, and she often cry because she have heart, not like 'ran haters' who have stone, so they can't open their eyes and say if ran is the worst. She so love shinichi too, and she don't care is shinichi leave here, she still wait for shinichi no matter what. She so strong at karate too, and be nice to children. I think that's why shinichi love her so much.

Ran is really alright but Goushou made her personality go bad.
For Example: when you're in trouble or you're scared, most people want their parents. But Ran always thinks of Shinichi and Shinichi only. She never shouted out for her father or her mother.
There's one more: she didn't even answer Shinichi's confession of love for her, but she still calls out for Shinichi. If she loves him so much, why didn't she just say "yes" then? This means that she actually doesn't love Shinichi, which also means that Ran is Shinichi's stalker.


How can a cutest, kindest, and most beautiful girl in detective conan be a fourth?! Are you kidding me?! Look at her! Kind, nice, cute, and the one so important, beautiful! She crying because she have heart, not like you who hate ran, you just have stone! Shinichi, conan, detective boys, and professor agasa too, like her! She was.strong, smart at karate, brave, always protect the person who she loved, and she loves shinichi with sincere! I think that's why shinichi LOVER HER SO MUCH!

She's really cool. Unlike what people are saying here, she is extremely strong emotionally, physically and intellectually. She has solved cases without Conan/Shinichi's help (around episode 350), she kicks ASS all the time ("Ran-nee-chan! Save me! " *roundhouse kicks bad guys* *wins karate tournaments*) and she completely supports her depressed alcoholic father (and he is, especially in the beginning of the series, depressed - he is smart, he shouldn't have that hard of a time solving cases really he's giving up.) by CHOICE when her parents split up, and is constantly trying to help him. She is one of the most loyal characters I have ever heard of outside a super natural story, she loves Shinichi as a valued childhood friend and perhaps more, even though he is (admittedly) a jerk to her, even after his 'disappearance.' She works through her abandonment issues to be the best daughter, sister and friend she can possibly be, never becoming cold, and I love her for it. She loves with all ...more

7 Kogoro Mouri

Even though some people laughs at his wrong explanations and jumping to conclusions, he's still an intelligent detective, and can solve cases and put the pieces together(that even us, fans, cannot even solve ourselves). He just needs a little push I think, and to top it all, when push comes to shove, he's an extremely reliable detective/friend/family.

Kogoro Mouri has just so much potential, that it isn't even funny anymore. He can solve cases if he wants too, as shown in episode 27 and he is intelligent, strong, cares for the people around him and has a cool moustache. He is the second best character in the whole series, in my opinion.

The funniest dude ever. There was a rumor going around that he was the leader of the men in black, and I wouldn't be shocked if it were true. He may be pretty dumb most of the time, but he has his moments

He is like Shikamaru, clever but too lazy to use his brain.

8 Shuichi Akai

While Akai Shuichi and Edogawa Conan are both Silver Bullets capable of destroying the Black Organization, only Akai is known by that title as well for being the best sniper in the FBI, if not in the entire anime. He was able to snipe Gin through the rifle SCOPE while Chianti and Korn couldn't even touch him. Vermouth admitted herself that he is the only one the Organization fears. While Edogawa certainly has the potential to become just as dangerous (maybe more so), he's still young, inexperienced, and somewhat arrogant at times (thinking he can take on a secret organization that operates on a global scale with powerful connections by himself, REALLY! ), thus makes reckless decisions and mistakes that may eventually be his downfall if he's not careful. While Akai manages to maintain his poker face and keep cool under pressure. He even managed to infiltrate the B.O. high enough to earn a code name. He is definitely a character that deserves to be recognized and acknowledged for his ...more

Ok...where do I start? He's very kind and not as cold as he seemed to be at first (such as how he hides the truth of scotch's death from Amuro), he's very smart (one of the few people who have around the same level of intelligence as Shinichi) and his sniping skills are top notch. Not to mention he's very handsome, disguise or not, and has a really nice voice. Is it just me or are him and Shinichi rather similar? They're both very smart, the ones they love/loved are similar, they are the 2 silver bullets who will someday bring down the organisation, even their first names are similar! I also absolutely loved that in "Clash of Red and Black", despite only properly meeting face to face that day, Shinichi thought up such an amazing plan which heavily relied on Shuichi and Shuichi in turn trusted this apparent 7-year old with his life (he's also the only one who understood all of Conan's actions). I believe Shuichi is the only person Shinichi truly trusts when it comes to the fight ...more

I LOVE HIM! He is such a cool character and I can think of soooo many reasons why I like him the best. I mean he can shoot from 700 yards away and he so good at everything that he is the most feared enemy of the black Organization! He is my favorite character out of all the novels, mangas, anime, movies and TV shows out there.

Hello? 7th place? This is the Silver Bullet we're talking about (least one of them). Bourbon's rival. The guy with a lot of mystery around him. He's been undercover with a different identity on more than one occasion to shock the audience. He's just downright cool in all the best possible ways.

9 Yukiko Kudo

Shinichi's mother, she doesn't appear much because of her work as an actress just like her husband.

The best mother in case closed. She beautiful and so good at masquerade. I eas so glad she's not like haibara who make me sick

I like her, she's the coolest mom ever. And she acts like a teenager, she's somewhat similar to Chikage(Kaito's mom)

10 Gin

One of the best villains in the anime, it gets really intense and scary when he is around, his influence in the anime is really scary and impressive. He has such great intellect and patience, he really is a dangerous man, and an excellent villain in DC, very thriller to watch.

Colder than ice, but just great "bad guy" for this anime/manga. Don't tell me that you're not nervous if he get too near to Conan or Ai... he just has this "I will kill you" aura. Great!

Best mafia villain ever! He's just so good-looking, badass, merciless and decisive leader. He's just my motivation to continue reading this thrilling manga!

Ice cold killer who wouldn't bat an eyelash before riddling you with bullets. Smart and able to react to situations quickly and without emotion. He is also extremely physically capable and has that murderer appearance =)

The Contenders
11 Sonoko Suzuki

I feel like Sonoko is the younger, and female version of Mouri Kogoro. She's alright, but I don't like how she takes Conan's credit for solving a case, without stopping and thinking that she has no memory of it. That's why I think she somewhat similar to Kogoro, that and the fact that their both hopeless flirts.

Sexy. I want to feel her body!

With sonoko the episodes are more fun, interesting and funny because sonoko acts like a kid

12 Tooru Amuro (Bourbon)

You know, this boy got a whole movie for himself next year. He's terribly popular in Japan and can easily makes it to the top 3. I don't even surprise that such a good character only got 18th place here, knowing he is pretty underrated in the western side.

He's is a good guy who thinks goals justify the means and act with that in mind, one of his better traits is his morality faults which make him a better character. And he's sexy and a good boxer and that obssessive side of his make me love him more.

At first, I don't have any impression toward him. But there's chapter when he punched the bad guy on chest, then I fall for him.

He's badass, sexy, but manipulative and dangerous.

Okay, amuro in 16th and kogoro in 9th. This doesn't make sense, kogoro literally useless he's just a party clown.

13 Ayumi Yoshida

She more cute than ran

Beautiful, nice and have a kind heart.

That was ayumi, so I like her

14 Vermouth

She should be in top 10! She's the only sharp, cunning woman and even helps Kudou in some instances... In the series.. Like diverting gin from killing Kogoro. Even after knowing the true identities if Conan and Haibara she doesn't tell the Black organization anything! The Best Mysterious character ever

No woman has a more charismatic combination of intellect, beauty, and empathy than she does. One of my favorite female manga characters of all time.

Seriously? she should be on the top 3. She's mysterious, cunning, beautiful, manipulative, intelligent, charismatic, and also unpredictable.

She never wanted to kill Ran or Shinichi so when times Gin wanted to kill them she tries to stop him.

15 Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya

Such a cute character!

16 Masumi Sera

intelligent, pretty, cute. tbh I used to dislike her at her first appearance but she's a kind hearted and a clever character, and is serious and helpful when needed, strong and cheerful + being chukichi and shu's younger sister, Ai's cousin and the daughter of MARY SERA, masu is just perfect and deserves a better rank.

Masumi Sera is easily forgotten after her at the moment character impact but she is the only kind of regular female detective in the anime so why is there no more votes for her?

Smart Detective, Jeet Kune Do, wild personality, Akai sister, literally cannot make a face I'm not in love with, what more is there to say? Only reason she's not higher up is because she was introduced so late

Love her so much! She's smart, cute and knows Jeet Kune Do, and bad ass detective. I hope to see more of Sera Masumi! And her character development. And I hope she has a lot of screen time. I really like her

17 Genta Kojima
18 Yusaku Kudo

I really would like to know more about him, what he think about his son just doing all crazy stuffs while he write book. He is crazy smart, yet as parent... I really want to know what he THINKS.

He is smarter and cooler. He is faster than Shinichi in solving cases. He is calm and I never saw him loosing his temper. He is reliable. I prefer at least 3 or 4 place for him.

He is very smart and he knows the answer of the case before Kudo Shinichi (Jimmy Kudo) does. I still prefer Kudo shinichi

Ok, so, he's like the first version of shinichi and he's like super smart! I really, really like his chill personality that's also protective of his family (I.e. that episode when he dressed up like night baron and kidnapped conan with his wife and Agasa and he told conan/shinichi to go to america with them to stay safe and not get hurt and that he'll take care of the BO) and he's such a good husband/dad! He's an amazing person and I think he deserves more attention and episodes because his character is so interesting and intriguing:)

19 Wataru Takagi

I think he is one of the nicest characters, although he isn't the smartest, but I really respect him..
He is loyal to a fault and he won't hesitate to sacrifice his life, not only to save sb's else's but to save a MEMENTO that means a lot to sb else (I fell in love with him when he refused to break those cuffs ).
And poor guy has the worst luck..
But I believe there might be more to this character I mean we don't know enough about his background, we never saw any relatives of his. Maybe something will be brought to light later..

Through he is kinda foolish and unconfident outside, he has a strong heart which full of justice and honesty inside. Whenever his lover is in danger, he is soberer than anyone. He is lovable and kind. I am always moved when seeing he protect his girlfriend even at a cost of his life.

This is a loveable doofus.

20 Subaru Okiya

He always keeps his cool and acts mysteriously. It was no surprise tie when I found out he was actually akai shuiichi.

21 Kazuha Toyama

Kazuha is pretty and a real talented student at school. She's sometimes mean to Heiji but actually just because she wants to hide her true feeling toward him

She is far better character than Ran. + cutie

I like her very much. She and Heji are so cute together. When they fight I always laugh

I love kazuha and I ship her relationship with heiji and I see her as the best detective conan girl

22 Shiho Miyano
23 Hiroshi Agasa

Many believe he is Ano Kata the boss of the black organization, but I say he's not.

Are you kidding me?! He is the best EVER

He is basically a Watson

24 Jodie Starling

I'm surprised Jodie doesn't have more of a following! She's definitely one of my favorite characters and I almost feel a bit funny saying that when she was first introduced, I laughed at her engrish and what-not, but as we discovered more about her, I began to really appreciate her as a character. After Akai's... Well.. "death", it really sealed the deal for me. She's a great, complex character and I really appreciate her presence in the Detective Conan universe. She's awesome!

The best FBI's! Second after akai, hehe. Well, she beautiful, smart, and good enough at use gun. Well, at least not like haibara who so loser when meet and face to face to vermouth. Hate haibara so much

Fbi's top investigator and akai shuuichi's partner. She is one of the badass and beautiful women of dc!

25 Miwako Sato

She has a strong sense of justice and sacrifice, hates power of darkness. She is sober and brave. She always deals with cases resolutely. She also has a soft heart inside and even childish. She is a pretty policewoman and almost every males of colleague like her. Through she has boyfriend, her charm is not affected.

Strong, brave, and beautiful. That's all sato characters. Yeah, I love her, because she not like haibara who fake and cry a lot

She came out as a very strong woman in Conan vs Lupin the Third.

What a cool character. I like her.
