Jii discovers Kaito's identity during their confrontation on a rooftop in Volume 1. At first, Jii mistook Kaito for being Toichi, Kaito's father. After this confrontation, Jii stops dressing up as the Kaitou Kid since Kaito takes the role over.[1] Instead, Jii opts to assist Kaito in any way he can with his heists, although he's concerned for Kaito's well being. .

Akako Koizumi

Akako discovers Kaito's identity after her magic mirror reveals that there is only one man on Earth able to resist her: Kaitou Kid. When Kaito turns down the offer of getting one of Akako's chocolates on Valentine's Day in return for throwing away the others he's received, Akako puts two and two together and realizes Kaito must be Kaitou Kid.[2] Kaito continues to deny this allegation but does occasionally listen to Akako's advice.

Ruby Jones

Ruby Jones discovers Kaito's identity during the events of the Golden Eye heist. She pretends to be an American insurance company investigator to help protect the Golden Eye when in reality she's Chat Noir, a French thief known for stealing cat's eye jewelry. During the Golden Eye heist, Ruby manages to grab a hold of Kaito's disguise and pull it off, but luckily for Kaito, the lights shut off before anyone else can see his real face. In the TV Special, Ruby figured out that Kaito was really Kaitou Kid by the fact that he mentioned about the birthstone of December in France is malachite (マラカイト marakaito) and that Aoko mentions how Kaito's birthday is in June. From that she figures out Kaitou Kid's real identity.

Chikage Kuroba

In the manga version, despite not actually seeing Kaito go into Toichi's secret room, heard the panel to the room open from where she was standing in the house with Aoko.[3] However, she later refers to him as her "Kid Jr." and "Magician Under the Moonlight-san". In the TV special, Chikage is not suspicious because she was away in Las Vegas at the time Kaito discovered Toichi's secret room. Chikage was the "Phantom Thief Lady", once saved by the soon-to-be Phantom Thief KID Toichi. As such, she knew that Toichi was Kaitou Kid.

Saguru Hakuba

Hakuba first becomes suspicious of Kaito's secret identity after using his grandfather's analyzer on a piece of Kaitou Kid's hair. The results of the analysis come up a perfect match for Kaito.[4] Despite Hakuba's careful planning in proving Kaito is Kid he is fooled when Akako dresses up as Kid and covers for Kaito. Realizing Kaito and Kid couldn't be in the same room together, he is stumped.[5]. However, Hakuba is still convinced that Kaito is Kaitou Kid when Hakuba calls Kaito from Paris in order to give him some information on 'Chat Noir', a dangerous, fellow gem thief trying to outshine Kid. Though Kaito continues to vehemently deny being Kid, Hakuba gives him the information anyways, ending the conversation with, "Do your best at least. I don't want to see you lose to anyone before I capture you myself". In the Sun Halo Heist, Hakuba witnessed Kaito riding a motorbike to school and subsequently prepared a squad of motorcycle experts from the police headquarters for the heist, showing that Hakuba still believes that Kaito is Kaitou Kid, despite still not having definitive proof of that.

Suspicious

Aoko Nakamori

Aoko first becomes suspicious of Kaito's secret identity after her father swears that he saw that Kid was Kaito during the Angel Crown heist. Out of disbelief and concern Aoko asks Kaito out on a date to Tropical Land at the same time Kaitou Kid is scheduled to complete a heist.[6] Because she believes Kaito never left her side during the time of the heist (he did) and the heist was completed successfully, she thinks she's proven Kaito cannot possibly be Kaitou Kid. However in chapter 34 of Magic Kaito when Kid manages to save her from falling through a trap door, she jumps up and knocks his hat away, seeing Kaito's face. However, Aoko immediately thinks that Kid is disguised as Kaito in order to deceive her, most likely because she witnessed two events in the past that have disproven Kaito being Kid. Kaito barely manages to convince her not rip off his disguise and focus on escaping instead.

Ginzo Nakamori

Ginzo Nakamori first becomes suspicious of Kaito's secret identity during the Angel Crown heist. The police manage to shine a light on Kid's face before he's able to cover it with his cape.[7] In disbelief of this allegation that Kaito is really Kaitou Kid, his daughter Aoko claims it's impossible because she'll be on a date with Kaito at the same time Kaitou Kid is scheduled to do a heist.

Toichi Kuroba

Canon

Chikage Kuroba

Jii worked as Toichi Kuroba's assistant in magic shows. He also knew of Toichi's alter ego as the Kaitou Kid, and presumably assisted him in his heists.

Yusaku Kudo

10 years before the current timeline, Kaitou Kid issued a very difficult challenge to Yusaku Kudo through his son Shinichi. The message from Kaitou Kid to Yusaku was simply a "?" on a single piece of paper with no return address or way of contacting Kaitou Kid. Nevertheless, Yusaku sent the appropriate reply, a "!", along with Yukiko to be given to Toichi. There was no way for Yusaku to know to deliver the reply for Kid to Toichi without knowing Toichi is Kaito Kid or an accomplice. In addition a two panel exposition at the end of the chapter shows a pseudo-dialogue between Toichi and Yusaku that clarifies that Yusaku likely knows Toichi is Kaito Kid rather than an accomplice.

Toichi: Are you going to be able to stop me next time?
Yusaku: Yeah, of course![8]

Snake
