Samizu Kichiemon is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan. A long-deceased doll maker who worked during the Bakumatsu era, he is better known for his elaborate and often dangerous mechanical contraptions used to guard jewels and other precious items. His works and the protected items are frequently targeted by Kaitou Kid or acquired by Jirokichi Suzuki as bait.
 Plot overview
 Strange Mansion Adventure (475-478)
Kichiemon built a strange mansion full of deadly traps and a riddle which reveals the location of a diamond. The house was built over an underground hot spring. The traps he included are a set of stairs which turn into a slippery slide leading to a pit of spikes, a ladder whose rungs fold down and open a trap door over a pit when weight is put on them, swinging blades triggered by pressure on the floor, and a trap which floods the surrounding area with a great quantity of water if the diamond trigger is removed. The mansion also included a primitive elevator.
 The Iron Tanuki (674-676)
He built a large walk in safe. It has many dials which must be turned correctly lest the safe cracker be split in half by a giant axe or impaled by darts.
 The Haunted Warehouse (690-692)
Kichiemon built a warehouse with a false roof which lowers to the floor if the beads of an abacus-like instrument are placed to form the kanji for "Samizu". The warehouse included a false window and trick steps to hide the greater size of the interior and the extra space in the roof.
 Kirin's Horn (712-715)
Samizu built a temple with a central pillar that opens to reveal a kirin statue with a valuable horn. In the four corners of the temple room are pedestals for the four seasonal gods: Seiryuu, Suzaku, Byakko, and Genbu. Using a set of four keys or leaning on the pedestals in a certain order will cause the central column to open.
He is shown to have a rather humorous side, as is shown during the Iron Tanuki case where a little doll held a fan that said, "You lose!", making both Kid and Conan twitch.
