List of Black Organization related characters
|This article contains significant spoilers about major recent and current events. It is likely you will be spoiled if you have not read all the manga released to date. To find out what pages will be safe for you to read, please consult our wiki spoiler policy.|
Many main and minor characters have been linked to the Black Organization.
This list excludes major Black Organization members and characters with jobs investigating crime generally, like the police. Characters who are part of an agency targeting the Black Organization like the FBI and CIA are also excluded unless their connection to the Organization goes beyond their work.
This is a list of people who are known to have collaborated with the Black Organization, voluntarily or involuntarily. Some of these collaborators became assassination targets later. Those whose collaboration with the Black Organization is not clearly confirmed are listed with targets below.
 Unnamed Weapons Smuggler
Gin and Vodka blackmailed an unnamed company owner who had been smuggling guns for over 100 million yen in cash. After Vodka received the briefcase of cash, he returned the film evidence of the business' gun smuggling. Vodka may have intended to kill the man when the transaction was complete as he began to draw his gun, but it could also have been in response to the company owner's remark the Black Organization does even worse things than gun smuggling. The man escaped when Gin assaulted Shinichi who had been spying on the transaction and Vodka was distracted.
 Akemi Miyano and the billion yen robbery gang
Five years prior to the current time-line, FBI agent Shuichi Akai infiltrated the Black Organization by dating Akemi Miyano. He was expelled after his true allegiance was uncovered, but Akemi could not be silenced because it would jeopardize the loyalty of her valuable sister Shiho Miyano. Eventually the Organization came up with a way to get rid of Akemi by pretending to make a deal with her; in exchange for a successful bank robbery, Gin told Akemi she and Shiho could go free. The Organization thought Akemi would surely fail and thus they would have an acceptable reason to kill her.
Akemi hired two partners, the family-less, get-away driver Kenzo Hirota who worked at a taxi company in Tokyo, and an unnamed giant man with connections at a Pachinko building to serve as muscle. Akemi and her two partners successfully pulled off the robbery, killing a guard in the process. Kenzo Hirota then backstabbed the other two by running away with the billion yen. In order to track him down, Akemi and her partner approached different detectives pretending to be Kenzo's relatives. Under alias Hirota Masami, Akemi Miyano pretended she was school girl from Yamagata to enlist Kogoro's help. Masami’s other giant accomplice pretended to be Kenzo's elder brother, Akira Hirota, from Kyushu. After the two find Kenzo, a fight broke out between the two men, resulting in the giant strangling Kenzo against Akemi's wishes. Akemi and the giant hung Hirota's corpse from a rope to make it appear like a suicide, grabbed the cash, and left for a hotel. Gin had given Akemi sleeping pills to add to the giant man's drink so she could take the money from him. The pills were really laced with cyanide and the giant man was killed. Akemi left the real cases of money at the hotel and went to meet with Gin and Vodka at the shipping yard. Gin killed her there, but was unable to recover the money.
 Unnamed woman
- See: Shinkansen Bomb Case
An unnamed woman exchanged 400 million yen for information about gold worth even more money with Gin and Vodka on a bullet train's dining car. Instead of information, the Organization packed the case they were giving her with explosives to kill the woman because she was no longer useful. The anime replaced Gin and Vodka with lookalikes in the corresponding episode. 
 Hideaki Nakajima
- See: Game Convention Case
Hideaki Nakajima, age 27, worked for Mantendo corporation's game development section and designed a mystery video game about Kogoro Mouri. He was in a University boxing club and has issues with creditors. He made an exchange with Tequila, giving Tequila a list of some of the world's most highly skilled programmers in exchange for a large amount of money. One of Hideaki's coworkers wanted to kill him for revenge, but Tequila was killed instead by accident. The Black Organization then immediately blew up the Daiko Building's Cocktail Bar where Hideaki and Tequila had meetings.
 Ki'ichiro Numabuchi
Ki'ichiro Numabuchi is an assassin who escaped the Black Organization before they could test APTX 4869 out on him when they decided he was useless. He then escaped from prison after that. He first showed up in Osaka in the The Naniwa Serial Murder Case where he is a suspect. He is innocent of these particular crimes and was being starved in a shack by the real serial killer who wanted to frame him. He tries to stab Conan with a kitchen knife while escaping, but Heiji's good luck charm luckily blocks the blow. He took driving lessons at a seminary 20 years ago but failed. He appears again in Mitsuhiko's Mystifying Forest. When he escaped from the police (again) in a forest in Gunma, Conan discovers he apparently lived by the forest when he was younger and liked fireflies.
 Suguru Itakura
Suguru Itakura (板倉 卓 Itakura Suguru), age 45, was a famous CG graphic designer/games system engineer who also worked on special effects for films. He probably owns Itakura studio. Three years before the current timeline, he stopped developing CG and a particular program due to poor eyesight. Two years ago Tequila showed up at his office to say he was interested in the particular “system software” Itakura stopped developing. One year later, he was later forced to finish the program with a year deadline. Itakura didn’t want to complete the program “not only for his eyesight but for the sake of humanity.” He stayed in New Beika Hotel where he was killed by an unrelated party. He kept a diary and noted Vermouth had a cat around when he talked to her. Conan pretending to be him was told to put the disk in locker 1012. Itakura also helped provide many special effects for films and plays Vermouth and Yukiko Kudo were in. This is presumably how Vermouth hired him for the Organization's research as she was seen arguing with him on sets, something she never did with anyone else.
Asaka (浅香 Asaka) is a mysterious person from 17 years ago who Conan believes is the killer of Kohji Haneda and potentially the Black Organization member Rum. Asaka approached the Black Organization target Amanda Hughes to be her bodyguard. Amanda and Kohji were later found dead in their American hotel rooms under mysterious circumstances; Kohji was apparently killed by APTX 4869 or something like it. Asaka then vanished without a trace. Not much else is known about the person.
Asaka's gender is uncertain. Gaito Hotta learned that someone witnessed Asaka holding a small hand mirror, and he guessed Asaka's gender is female; however, his reliability is questionable and perhaps influenced by the fact that the bodyguard was in possession of a women's accessory. Currently, Conan suspects that Asaka is a strong female bodyguard rather than a male based on Gotta Haito's testimony.
In addition, Conan suspects that Asaka may be Rum after examining Kohji Haneda's broken handmirror shown in a picture on the case website. Kohji's broken hand mirror only had the letters PTON. The missing letters "U MASCARA" can be arranged to make the phrase "ASACA RUM". If this message means "Asaka is Rum" or something else is currently unclear, but not only did Okiya and Conan both arrived at that solution, the Black Organization has proven itself to be paranoid about anything related to the name ASACA spelled with a C and 17 years ago. Bourbon was sent to investigate a song titled "Asaca" written by Rokumichi Hado who took a hiatus 17 years ago. The song and the title turned out to be entirely to be unrelated to Haneda Kohji's case or the Black Organization.
This is a list of people involved in a Black Organization plot, either as victims of crime, intended victims, or intelligence targets. Targets who are known to have collaborated with the Black Organization are listed above.
 Shinichi Kudo/Conan Edogawa
 APTX 4869 Victims
The Black Organization keeps a record of people who were poisoned with APTX 4869. According to Haibara they were all confirmed dead (死亡), except for Shinichi Kudo (工藤 新一) who was listed as uncertain (不明). The list doesn't seem to be in chronological or alphabetical order. At least 10 people are shown listed, and there may be more victims if the list is longer than shown. The following people are on the list.
- ?? ?? (Status: Dead)

- Possible given names: Takaya, Koya
 Kohji Haneda
The victim Kohji Haneda (羽田 浩司 Haneda Kōji) is Shukichi Haneda's non-blood brother. He was murdered 17 years ago along with Amanda Hughes. In chapter 947, Shukichi quoted his brother Kohji as saying "one should stick with one's original plan" (初志貫徹 shoshi kantetsu). During "Let's Talk with Gosho Aoyama-sensei Day 2016", Gosho mentioned there was "red herring" in Volume 18, the same volume this list appeared in.
 Mary Sera
Mary; an unknown child whom Masumi calls sister outside the territory, was revealed in File 972 to be the mother of Shuichi Akai, Shukichi Haneda and Masumi Sera. 10 years ago before the current timeline, she possessed an adult body. That means during the timeskip, she took something similar to APTX 4869 which caused her body to shrink. She currently lives in various hotels, switching locations often as if pressured by a sense of threat.
 Masami Hirota
Masami Hirota, age 61, was a Nanyo University professor. Akemi Miyano had contact with and was probably close to him because she borrowed his name when coming up with an alias. When Shiho returned Akemi's vacation pictures to her, she had accidentally mixed in disks containing information about APTX 4869, which were saved by Professor Hirota. The Black Organization intended to kill Masami Hirota, but he was killed by an unrelated person first. Vodka disguised his voice and left a message on his answering machine pretending to be from "Kuro Life Insurance" so he could try to set up a meeting.
 Shigehiko Nomiguchi
Shigehiko Nomiguchi, age 56, and a politician, was bribed by someone who was never clarified (possibly by the Black Organization), and was going to be arrested and divulge information. The Black Organization decided to eliminate him. Pisco, with the unwilling help of Vermouth was ordered to perform the assassination. Pisco managed to successfully kill Nomiguchi by dropping a chandelier on him, but due to Conan's interference, the police discovered it was a murder and not an accident like the Black Organization hoped it would be ruled. His family disappeared soon after, but it's unknown if the Black Organization got rid of them or if they went into hiding to escape them. Haibara did not react to his presence while she was watching him with Conan.
 Araide family
Vermouth attempted to kill the Araide family so she could disguise and take the place of Tomoaki Araide. Dr. Araide was targeted for his job as school nurse at Teitan Elementary and Teitan High which allowed Vermouth to get close to Haibara Ai, Conan Edogawa, and Ran Mouri. The FBI caught on to Vermouth's intentions before she could act and used disguised stunt doubles to make it appear that the Araide family were all killed when their car ran off a cliff into the ocean. After Vermouth was unmasked, Dr. Araide has been able to come out of hiding and continue his job as school nurse where Vermouth left off. At this time, Vermouth was acting without the approval of the Black Organization, so it is doubtful whether Tomoaki Araide was of any interest to the rest of the Organization.
 Jazz club man
- See: Bus Hijacking Case
Gin and Vodka set up a man to be killed when they met with him at a jazz club. Vodka remarks that he seemed happy even though "he didn't even suspect that that drink would be his last." He was never shown in the manga, but was shown stepping into a taxi in the anime. Vermouth was disguised as a waiter in the club at the time, although it isn't clear whether she was there to assist if Gin and Vodka failed or if she had her own reasons.
In the anime added a non-canonical business card which lists his name as Masahito Yoshioka (吉岡昌仁 Yoshioka Masahito), the real-life chief producer of many Conan-related films and episodes from the anime studio Tokyo Movie Shinsa.
 Starling family
Vermouth killed Jodie Starling's parents 20 years ago and burnt down the Starling house. Vermouth's primary aim was to kill the FBI agent Mr. Starling and destroy his investigation files that involved Vermouth. Jodie survived because she left the house before it burnt down. After hearing that only two bodies were discovered, Vermouth desperately searched for Jodie, but to no avail; Jodie had been placed into the witness protection program by her father’s colleagues. Jodie became an FBI agent to seek out Vermouth.
 Senzo Fukuura
- See: Halloween Party Case
Senzo Fukuura, movie producer of "The Haunted Ship" series, was killed by a man wearing a werewolf costume whom Vermouth had blackmailed. His death was part of Vermouth's plan to lure Shinichi Kudo away from Ai Haibara, so it is unclear whether Vermouth had a particular reason for wanting Senzo Fukuura dead or if she only selected him as the target because he was convenient. Since she's an actress, she most likely used her connections in the movie business to gather information about the party in order to cocoon the murder plan. At this time, Vermouth was acting without the approval of the Black Organization, so it is doubtful whether this man was of any interest to the rest of the Organization.
 Werewolf man
- See: Halloween Party Case
Vermouth blackmailed this unnamed man into killing Senzo Fukura. After this man posted in a murder forum about wanting to kill Senzo Fukura, Vermouth replied back using her codename and asked if he would do so if she provided the tools and the strategy. The man revised his thoughts and refused, so Vermouth blackmailed him with a letter threatening his family and a box full of recordings of his family, tapped phonecalls, and detailed notes of his and his family's daily schedule. Blackmailing the werewolf man was part of Vermouth's plan to lure Shinichi Kudo away from Ai Haibara, so it is unclear whether Vermouth had a particular reason for blackmailing this man, or if she chose him because he was convenient. At this time, Vermouth was acting without the approval of the Black Organization, so it is doubtful whether this man was of any interest to the rest of the Organization.
 Yasuteru Domon
Yasuteru Domon is a politician hard on crime whom the Black Organization attempts to assassinate after the events of the Ding Dong Dash. The FBI believed the boss ordered the assassination of Yasuteru Domon who wasn't even part of the Diet yet because he is hard on crime and had a chance of becoming the next Prime Minister. The Black Organization ordered Kir to arrange an interview with him in exchange for suppressing information that his father was under suspicion of having an extramarital affair 20 years ago. The Black Organization planned the timing so that it could be blamed on female gang leader Kiriko Busajima who had been accused of hiring a hitman to kill him before. The assassination plot was called off because Yasuteru Domon decided to stop running for office when the affair information was about to come out anyway. The Black Organization had not realized that this information was enough to get him to stop running for office.
 Kogoro Mouri
Kogoro Mouri temporarily became an assassination target when Gin mistakenly thought that the detective planted a tracking and listening device on Kir's shoe. With the boss's permission he, Vodka, Vermouth, Korn and Chianti went Beika city to silence the detective. As the Black Organization snipers, Korn and Chianti, prepare to fire at Kogoro, they are interrupted by Conan kicking a soccer ball into Kogoro's window and Shuichi Akai's sniper shots. Thus, Kogoro is saved at the last second by a double effort from Conan and Shuichi Akai, and the Organization is made to believe the FBI planted the tracker. Despite Vermouth's prompting, Gin does not believe that Kogoro is completely innocent.
Tooru Amuro investigates and then apprentices himself to Kogoro because Amuro suspected the detective may be connected to Sherry. (Kogoro was previously suspected of being linked to Sherry because the tracker, microphone, and gum combo Gin found on Kir's shoe after the Ding Dong Dash case was the same style as the one Gin discovered in his car that Sherry supposedly planted.)
When Gin heard that Gaito Hotta, someone who had information on the Kohji Haneda case, had been killed and that Kogoro had been involved, his suspicions rose again. The he says "Its like encountering a demon in the darkness... If that guy is the demon, then we've got to finish him off while he sleeps."
 Toji Funemoto
Toji Funemoto is a young boy who bore witness to Rena Mizunashi's motorcycle accident. Vermouth confronted and interrogated him to figure out how much he knew. Gin noticed Toji was taken into witness protection by the FBI, but Vermouth told Gin he was irrelevant.
 Tohei Benzaki
Tohei Benzaki is a single man who inadvertently became a random target in one of Bourbon's plans to further investigate Conan and the FBI. Needing to use his appearance to approach Jodie at a cherry blossom viewing place, Bourbon made Tohei unconscious and disguised as him with Vermouth's help. Unfortunately for Bourbon, Tohei had just been pickpocketed by a female thief and he got caught up in a murder case where she's the victim. After the case is over, Bourbon returned the stolen purse to Tohei's unconscious body and left him to eventually wake up. Some point later, the police arrived at Tohei's apartment to question him about the pickpocketing case but he declared he did not know anything regarding the murder of the pickpocket. At this point it appears that Bourbon and the Black Organization have no further interest in Tohei Benzaki.
It is very unlikely that the real Tohei Benzaki had any involvement in the Teito Bank Heist, instead this backstory was fabricated by Bourbon.
 Natsuko Shibuya
- See: The Scarlet Return
Natsuko Shibuya is a Japanese friend of Jodie Starling's whom she helped in a case while she was studying abroad in America. Tooru Amuro was hired by Shibuya because she was being stalked and they met multiple times. One of these times, Amuro stole her phone and texted Jodie while pretending to be Shibuya, asking Jodie to go out for drinks. Jodie contacted Shibuya back via Camel's phone. Bourbon then planned to have Shibuya get into an accident, possibly by running her over with his car. Before Amuro could attack her himself, another person attacked Shibuya first. When the police came to the accident, they contacted Camel because it was one of the most recent phone numbers used. Vermouth copied Jodie's clothing while Amuro participated in solving the case. Vermouth then lured Jodie and Camel to the hospital by pretending to be a nurse calling in to report that Shibuya's condition had become critical. In the end, Amuro and Vermouth were able to trick Camel into revealing that Rikumichi Kusuda killed himself. Shibuya was fine in reality and recovered without incident. It is unclear how Amuro found out she was connected to Jodie.
 Amanda Hughes
Amanda Hughes (アマンダ・ヒューズ Amanda Hyūzu) was an elderly wealthy American who was killed 17 years prior to the current timeline. As the cause of her death could not be determined, it is possible that she was poisoned by APTX 4869 or a similar substance. Amanda apparently had contacts to two American intelligence agencies, the FBI and CIA. She died while staying at a hotel which was also occupied by shogi champion Kohji Haneda whom Amanda was a big fan of, and who was killed the same night. It was proved that she visited his hotel room. Conan suspects that a Black Organization agent posed as a bodyguard named "Asaka" and killed her with a drug. The bodyguard then vanished completely afterwards.
 Gaito Hotta
Gaito Hotta was a TV-personality, who claimed to solve cases by connecting with the spirits of the dead. He was exposed as a fraud at one point in connection with a case of a missing person. He then decided to make a comeback by using the mysterious murder case of Haneda Kohji and Amanda Hughes. He made research and discovered that Asaka, the missing bodyguard, had been seen holding a small mirror. He then concluded that Asaka was a woman and wanted to use that in his show. But he was murdered before it could happen. It is not known if the organization wanted to kill him, but they were keeping an eye on him.
 Rokumichi Hado
- See: Bourbon's Mission
 Tsutomu Akai
He somehow became involved with the Kohji Haneda case and made enemies which resulted in him having to leave his family behind and send them into hiding. While he is believed to be dead, his body was never actually found.
 Hinted people of interest to the Black Organization
This is a list of people that has been hinted in manga to be of interest to the organization
 Mikoto Shimabukuro/Kimie Shimabukuro
Kimie Shimabukuro assumed the identity of her great-grandmother Mikoto Shimabukuro an Elder from the mermaid island claimed to 130 years old and rumored to be immortal. As the Elder Kimie was the star in a festival on the island, where she, in a lottery, gave three dugong arrow, said to give the owner a long life and protection against demons, away to three winners. Because of the Elder's supposedly long life and a mysterious legless body corpse found in a fire, it has gather interest of people around Japan even from high-up and celebrities. Conan found Shiho Miyano's name in the register of people who had anticipated in the lottery and recalled that it was Haibara's real name. But he doubt it's the same person.

Vermouth, as her alias Sharon Vineyard, and Yukiko had a friendly relationship between the time they met under Toichi Kuroba's tutelage until the time Sharon "died". Yukiko had no idea Sharon was leading a double life as an operative in the Black Organization. Yukiko and Sharon seemed to have kept in contact with one another because Yukiko and Sharon both know about events in each others' lives that occurred after Toichi's lessons. Sharon was the one who got tickets for Yukiko, Shinichi, and Ran to the Golden Apple play on Broadway in New York City one year prior to the current time line. Yukiko also attended Sharon's funeral. Yukiko is currently aware that Sharon and Chris are the same person and a member of the Black Organization who had tried to kill her son earlier.
