Jugo Yokomizo (横溝 重悟 Yokomizo Juugo), often referred to as the same name as his twin brother, Inspector Yokomizo, is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Jugo is the younger brother of Sango Yokomizo, who is also an inspector from Kanagawa police district. Both started their police career in Saitama, but some time later Sango transferred to the Shizuoka district. However, they do stay in touch and have even assisted each other in various (and even locally unrelated) cases.
As children, Sango and Jugo would often play with other kids near the beach. Both brothers were actually afraid of swimming in the ocean, but while Jugo would go near the water, Sango was so scared that he would never even leave the boat. Thus, Sango, even as an adult, does not know how to swim.
Unlike his brother Sango, Jugo is serious, stern, and much less easygoing, and also much more impatient. Jugo is considered an adept inspector, but because of his habitual sinister stare he appears even more intimidating than his brother. As a result, he is not quite popular with any people outside the force, especially if they are able to compare him with his brother.
In addition, Jugo is, unlike his brother, very critical of Kogoro Mouri, whom he nicknames Smoking Kogoro (煙の小五郎 Kemuri no Kogorou) because of his heavy smoking habits, instead by his more common nickname Sleeping Kogoro (眠りの小五郎 Nemuri no Kogorou). He is also not a big fan of Conan Edogawa and the Detective Boys, often yelling at them and telling them to stay away from an investigation; as a result, they believe that Sango is the nicer of the two brothers. However, when they do get through to him, Jugo always readily listens and considers their opinions. He is also quite capable in his own right and quick to spot obvious discrepancies in a case.

 Name origin
Jugo's name comes from TV Drama Stray Detective Pure-Hearted Group character Shigetada Yokomizo (横溝 重忠 Yokomizo Shigetada). His twin Sango's given name combines with his to make a numerical pun: three (三 san) times five (五 go) makes fifteen (十五 juugo).
