Best Detective Conan Characters

The Top Ten

Ai Haibara

Ai haibara is the best not only because she's the most unique but because she can inspire anyone even the non-likers of her through her words even though she was considered one of the bad guys before... She has talents in her just waiting to be recognized and she sure brings out the total package of being an intelligent and independent woman even in her child form.

Haibara is always caring for Conan, she loves him but hides her feelings because she thinks that Shinichi only likes Ran. That means shes a good person because she doesn't want a love triangle happening

She is by far one of the most complicated characters in Detective Conan. She's also witty, a trait I like in characters.

She is awesome, talented, good-looking, genius! Or, simply SHE IS PERFECT. She is the strongest woman in Detective Conan, I think. She has so many bad memories.

Kudo Shinichi

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


That's a no no

I mean look at him!

He's practically intelligent, kind, smart, always cares for others first, handsome (sexy...), flexible, great soccer player, can control his fear (unlike haibara who shakes in fear whenever the BO comes near, at least as conan he just tensed not shakes and hide behind someone --"), the closest one to catch KID, willingly sacrifices himself for anyone, always prevails the truth, care for anyone even the murderers, and so on. I really think he's awesome.

He's intelligent and really kind.

Smart, kind, caring, sharp, hot... Yeah nothing more needed to mention, he's just awesome

Edogawa Conan

Seeing a kid solving case is more interesting than a high schooler to be honest even though they’re the same person lol

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

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

Of course Conan is the best. I would want to keep him forever.

Heiji Hattori

I personally prefer heiji over shinchi became I think more attractive and fun

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 love hear his voice just because. he sharp and idiot at the same time. HAHAAHAHA

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.

Ran Mouri

She's sweet and caring. She sticks with her father despite the fact that life would be easier is she lived with her mom. She's smart, caring, and strong. I honestly don't get why she gets so much hate.

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 ...more

I really don't understand why she gets much hate just because of some stupid haibara fans that want her to be with shinichi instead of ran and I am more than happy to say that if shinichi didn't turn small he wouldn't even bother looking at her some stupid fans really need to graw up and stop hating ON AN ANIME CHARACTER

I don't hate her until I watch DC movies. She always gets in trouble for doing something she knows she can't, it's like showing off. And yet, others have to save her instead and get in trouble that get their lives in danger. And she always brings her trouble for others to solve. She thinks she could but actually she couldn't, AND when she knows she couldn't, she would cried and called Shinichi name. :vv I'm so happy watching movie 20, 'cause she didn't do anything stupid so that others have to save her again, like movie 13, 17,... Always crying, knows Karate but not really know Karate. I must say, if she's not Shin's girlfriend, no one will care... I have more to say but I'm sure I'll get hates so should stop here.

Kaitou Kid

the best character! smart, has a sense of fun, and looks like shinichi

Smart, good-hearted, AWESOMELY COOL, and a genius. Really adorable personality

Kaito kid is amazing because:
1. He looks like shinich but cuter
2. He has an adorable personality
3. His purpose for stealing is so meaningful
4. He so funny and popular in the anime
5. He's afraid of fish which is ridiculously cute

He looks a lot like Kudo and the guy has cooler hair and a bigger sense of humour.

Shuichi Akai

He is the Scarlet Sniper of the Conan World! In Japan, he's in Second Place, by why is he seventh?

WHAT?! HE IS IN THE EIGHTH PLACE?! WHY?! Between all the guys, he is the coolest, and the most expert, professional, and detailed when it comes to planning strategies and on...Unlike Kudo Shinichi, Akai is the type of a guy who's cool and non-chalant. But also the one who cares about his missions. He's intellectual and quick-reacting when dealing to strangers and hard missions. He's very expert in using weapons and in shooting from far-away distances.

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.

Akai is so cool and smart and handsome


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 =)

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!

Kogoro Mouri

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.

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.

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.

Ayumi Yoshida

Ayumi have to be rank 2 after ai-chan she is adorable cute she is really great vote ayumi because you now she is the most cutes character

You cannot watch an episode without thinking, "OH MY GOSH AYUMI IS so ADORABLE! "

Shes just so adorable

Ayumi is my vavourite character

The Contenders

Kudo Yukiko

she is smart beautiful and cares for her son, tho she still teases him :)

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)

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.

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


Sexy. I want to feel her body!

Kazuha Toyama

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

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 very beautiful and deep souled

She is far better character than Ran. + cutie

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

What would Conan do without the Hakase?

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.

He can have my ass anytime he wants

I think he is the bravest

Tooru Amuro (Bourbon)

Bourbon is one of the candidates who is suitable for Haibara. He is hot afterall

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.

Best Character ever existed! Furuya is absolutely amazing! Have you ever seen him drive? This is total badass!

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.

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!

Fbi's top investigator and one of the badass women of dc!

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!

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.

Kudo Yusaku

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.

Really? Only rang 22? He's awesome

He is basically a holmes

Masumi Sera

I love this girl so cute. I hope goho aoyama tell her about subaru identity

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

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?

Masumi sera is a cute girl and she have a cool characteristics. Always helping people with her beautiful smile


My beautiful wife. I'd love to make love with her every night. And I will be sniiffing her beautiful and sour armpita everynight.

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

Vermouth is so complex and I wish we saw even more of her. Best female ‘antagonist’ (speaking of, where the hell is Hidemi/Kir?)

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.

Subaru Okiya

I know I can't give spoiler but, I'm shock too when knowing his true identity. I like his eyesmile and what I love the most when he open his eyes and I see GREEN EYEBALL U KNOW WHAT I MEAN

Polite and Chilled

Very a polite person, sooo cute when handling the detective boys

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

Shiho Miyano
Matsuda Jinpei

Coolest character in my opinion

He's just perfect. Yep. Well, one small flaw he does have... is that he died evem before the show started. Welp.
