The Raven Chaser
 Characters introduced
A man driving down a hillside road suddenly realizes that his car’s brakes don't work. Traveling at a high speed, the car crashes into a toll station. The man dies but leaves a mysterious dying message: "Tanabata kyo.”
A mysterious Mahjong tile next to the body links this case to six other homicide cases in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Shizuoka, Nagasaki, and other places in Japan. Because of the Mahjong tiles left beside each victim, the police conclude that the same person or organization committed these large-scale murders. The police of prefectures across Japan unite to find the murderer.
After a police conference about this case, Conan discovers a police officer walking out of the building and entering a black Porsche. He concludes that a Black Organization member is disguised as a police officer and has infiltrated the meeting. Conan is left wondering which officer is the fake and what interest the Black Organization has in the case.
On the day of Tanabata, Conan corners Vermouth in the underground parking lot of a shopping mall and interrogates her. She says that the Black Organization needs a memory chip and a new member, "Irish."
Conan employs the help of Heiji Hattori and tries to solve the serial murder case by following the dying message lead. He and Heiji find out that two years ago, there was a fire accident in a hotel in Kyoto, and a young woman named Nanako Honjo died. The elevator could only hold seven, but eight people needed to escape. Nanako wasn't on the last elevator and couldn't escape. Conan tracks down her neighbor, Shun Sawamura, and asks him some questions.
Conan finds out that Nanako and her boyfriend, Kosuke Mizutani, often went star gazing together. Conan realizes that the crime scenes are ordered like the star constellation Ursa Major, making the last crime scene the Tohto Tower. The police also figure out the pattern of the crime scenes and leave for Tohto Tower.
On the way, Detective Sato and Takagi make a detour to Beika Woods after receiving a call from Professor Agasa. The Detective Boys find Matsumoto inside a small house in the woods.
- In the introduction, there is a brief scene showing Gin and Vodka confronting Akemi Miyano in a flashback. In this flashback, Gin was using his right hand to hold the gun as he had in the episode this scene was referring to, though it is known Gin is left-handed. This is the only other time Gin has been mistakenly portrayed as right-handed.
- As a tradition started with the Full Score of Fear and continued with all subsequent movies, there is a Magic File that ties into the plot of the Raven Chaser.
- 'The Raven Chaser' is the highest grossing film in the Detective Conan franchise grossing more than 3.5 billion yen.
