This is a list of people who are known to have collaborated with the organization, voluntarily or involuntarily. Some of these collaborators became assassination targets later. Those whose collaboration with the 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 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. He appears in Roller Coaster Murder Case.
Kenzo Hirota (広田 健三 Hirota Kenzō), age 48, was a taxi driver, who Akemi Miyano hired to be the get-away driver, likely due to his profession would make him the one to know the best escape route. However after the robbery, Hirota backstabbed his partners and went into hiding with the money. Akemi and her other partner, a giant, hired each a detective to search for Hirota, posing as relatives. First Akemi's detective, Kogoro, found him. When Akemi stood face to face with him, he became terrified, but couldn't do anything in front of Kogoro, Ran, and Conan. The giant killed Hirota for his betrayal. There isn't known much about him expect that he plays on horses and owns four cats. He appears in ¥1,000,000,000 Robbery, but The Black Organization: One Billion Yen Robbery Case replaced him with Shiro Kaizuka.
Akira Hirota (広田 明 Hirota Akira), age 28, was the giant hired by Akemi to be a part of her robbery gang due to his strength. After Kenzo Hirota betrayed them, the giant hired a detective to search for him, posing as an elder brother. After Kenzo Hirota was found, the giant killed him. Akemi who happened to also have tracked him down gave him her watch, which had Conan's tracker on. He and Akemi hide in a hotel room, and while the giant was counting the money, Akemi slipped cyanide pills into his drink in the belief that they were just sleeping pills, hence killing the giant. He appears in ¥1,000,000,000 Robbery, but The Black Organization: One Billion Yen Robbery Case replaced him with Kishi.
An unnamed rich woman in Tokyo 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. She was saved by Conan and arrested by the Kyoto police for corruption. She appears in Shinkansen Bomb Case, but the corresponding anime episode replaced Gin and Vodka with lookalikes Ueda and Shimoda.
Hideaki Nakajima (中島英明 Nakajima Hideaki), 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 organization then immediately blew up the Daiko Building's Cocktail Bar where Hideaki and Tequila had meetings. He appears in Game Convention Case.
Suguru Itakura 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 0032. 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 seventeen years ago who Conan believes is the killer of Kohji Haneda and potentially the organization member Rum. Asaka approached the 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 organization has proven itself to be paranoid about anything related to the name ASACA spelled with a C and seventeen years ago. Bourbon was sent to investigate a song titled "Asaca", written by Rokumichi Hado who took a hiatus seventeen years ago. The song and the title turned out to be entirely to be unrelated to Haneda Kohji's case or the organization.
This is a list of people involved in an organization plot, either as victims of crime, intended victims, or intelligence targets. Targets who are known to have collaborated with the organization are listed above.
Shinichi Kudo/Conan Edogawa
APTX 4869 victims
The 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). Haibara says she changed Shinichi's status to "Dead" while she was still in the organization, which was first shown in the version of the list that Rumi Wakasa looks at on her laptop in file 1005. The list doesn't seem to be in chronological or alphabetical order. At least ten people are shown listed, and there may be more victims if the list is longer than shown. The following people are on the list.

The victim Kohji Haneda is Shukichi Haneda's non-blood brother. He was murdered seventeen years ago along with Amanda Hughes. In file 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, 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. Ten 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 (広田正巳 Hirota Masami), 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 organization intended to kill Masami Hirota, but he was first killed by Akira Shirakura, an unrelated model. 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. He appears in Murdered Professor Case.
Shigehiko Nomiguchi (呑口重彦 Nomiguchi Shigehiko), age 56, and a politician, was bribed by someone who was never clarified (possibly by the organization), and was going to be arrested and divulge information. Their head 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 organization hoped it would be ruled. His family disappeared soon after, but it's unknown if the 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. He appears in Hotel Party Murder Case.
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 organization, so it is doubtful whether Tomoaki Araide was of any interest to the rest of the organization.
Masahito Yoshioka (吉岡昌仁 Yoshioka Masahito), age 42, was a Ministry of Foreign Affairs general summary in OK Trading Co., Ltd. who lived in Haido City. Gin and Vodka set up that 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. He appears in Bus Hijacking Case, and in the anime added a non-canonical business card which lists his name, the real-life chief producer of many related films and episodes from the anime studio Tokyo Movie Shinsa, appeared also on the party registry in Captured in Her Eyes.
Vermouth killed Jodie Starling's parents twenty 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 (福浦 千造 Fukuura Senzō), 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 organization, so it is doubtful whether this man was of any interest to the rest of the organization. He appears in 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 away from 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 organization, so it is doubtful whether this man was of any interest to the rest of the organization. He was found out by Heiji and arrested by the Tokyo police for murder. He appears in Halloween Party Case.
Yasuteru Domon (土門 康輝 Domon Yasuteru) is a politician hard on crime whom the organization attempts to assassinate after the events of the Ding Dong Dash. The FBI believed their head 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 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 twenty years ago. The 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 organization had not realized that this information was enough to get him to stop running for office. He appears in Black Organization vs. FBI.
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 their head's permission he, Vodka, Vermouth, Korn and Chianti went Beika city to silence the detective. As the 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 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 (船本 透司 Funemoto Tōji), age 8, is a 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 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 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 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 (アマンダ・ヒューズ Amanda Hyūzu) was an elderly wealthy American who was killed seventeen 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. Haibara has yet to confirm whether she saw Amanda's name on the list or not. 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 an organization agent posed as a bodyguard named "Asaka" and killed her with a drug. The bodyguard then vanished completely afterwards.
Gaito Hotta (堀田凱人 Hotta Gaito) 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 Kohji Haneda 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 by the director Sanpei Kokuri before it could happen. It is not known if the organization wanted to kill him, but they were keeping an eye on him. He appears in Soul Detective Murder Case.
Rokumichi Hado, age 39, is a Japanese rock musician who took a hiatus seventeen years ago and was investigated by Bourbon and Vermouth because his new single was to be named ASACA, and to finish him if it was. However, he committed suicide for personal reasons. His single "Asaca" was entirely unrelated to Kohji's death seventeen years ago or Asaka. Despite the lack of clues about Asaka or Rum, the case proved that the organization is aware of the decoding of Kohji's dying message and is paranoid about it.
Tsutomu Akai 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.
Kimie Shimabukuro (島袋 君恵 Shimabukuro Kimie), age 27, assumed the identity of her late great-grandmother Mikoto Shimabukuro (島袋 弥琴 Shimabukuro Mikoto), an elder from the mermaid island in Fukui Prefecture, claimed to 130-year-old and rumored to be immortal, when her mother died in a fire three years ago. As the elder Mikoto was the star in an annual festival on the island shrine, where her great-granddaughter was the maiden and she, in a lottery, gave three dugong arrows, 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 the fire, who was actually her mother disguised, it has gather interest of people around Japan in the old days, even from high-up and celebrities: the old Foreign Minister, the director of the Secretariat, the president of the bank of Japan, etc. During their investigation, Conan found Shiho Miyano's name in the register of past people who had anticipated in the lottery and recalled that it was Haibara's real name, but he doubt it's the same person, because she doesn't appear to the type who want immortality, and didn't inform Heiji, due then Ran and Kazuha screamed up. At some point, Sherry had investigated the legend of Yao Bikuni originated here along with Gin and Vodka, who had written down the names Jin Kurosawa and Saburo Uokka before hers. Their ticket numbers were 47 for Gin, 48 for Vodka, and 49 for Sherry. After Conan found out the truth as Sleeping Kogoro, Kimie was arrested by the Fukui police for having brutally killed her childhood friends Saori Kadowaki, Toshimi Ebihara, and Naoko Kuroe avenging her mother's death. Since the organization is no longer interested in her secret, the black trio had already discovered it during their investigation. She appears in Mermaid's Curse Case.
Acquaintances of individual organization members
This is a list of people who are acquaintances of organization members, but were never part of the organization themselves. Former organization members are listed on the main Black Organization page.
Toichi Kuroba taught Vermouth, who was disguised as Sharon Vineyard at the time, the finer arts of disguise.
Vermouth, as her alias Sharon Vineyard, and Yukiko Kudo 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 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 organization who had tried to kill her son earlier.
Vermouth, as Sharon Vineyard, knew Shinichi Kudo since he was young through her friendship with Yukiko. After Shinichi helped Ran save Vermouth's life in New York while she was disguised as a serial killer, she nicknames him "Cool guy". Vermouth later becomes one of the few characters who know Conan is Shinichi.
Vermouth, as Sharon Vineyard, met Ran Mouri through the Kudo family. After Ran saved Vermouth's life in New York City, Vermouth nicknames Ran "Angel".
Sohei Dejima (出島壮平 Dejima Sōhei), age 54, was Atsushi Miyano's childhood playmate. He hasn't seen Atsushi for thirty years, which means they were friends until their twenties. He has lived in the house that Atsushi inherited from his father for thirty years. Atsushi and his wife Elena stopped by after Akemi was 4 or 5 years old, and they were in the organization, to tell Dejima something important, but his friend was out so he never got to say what it was. He was being watched by the organization at that time. Akemi came back as an adult to hide tapes left by her mother for Shiho in the toilet, and afterwards the organization came to investigate secretly. He was killed by Tetsuo Imai, one of his office designers unrelated to the organization. He appears in Bathroom Murder Case.
Wataru Date was a close friend of Rei Furuya while they were in police academy together. Rei was the top-ranked student, while Date held second place. While Date went on to become an officer, Rei went somewhere else, probably the Secret Police or the organization, and fell out of contact with Date. Date's last text to Rei asked him where he was and chided Rei to communicate once in a while. After discovering his old friend was dead, Rei visited Date's grave, and left a toothpick out of respect for Date.
Kyosuke Senma (千間 恭介 Senma Kyōsuke) was an archaeologist of an unknown village who Renya Karasuma, their head, invited to his Sunset Manor forty years ago. He wanted Senma to find the treasure before he died of old age. It was a very well-paid job. His wife and then 23-year-old daughter Furuyo received large sums of money, along with a letter from him, almost every day. But after six months, the money and letters suddenly stopped coming. Senma, who had never given their his address, vanished forever. After becoming a famous detective, his daughter only found out the truth when she held his last letter, which she had kept as a memento, against a light. He had written a secret note by poking tiny holes in the paper left for her with a needle. He recorded the riddle of the treasure and wrote that many other scholars had been invited to the manor. He also wrote that Karasuma had begun to kill those scholars, one by one, as a warning to the others, and that even if he found the treasure, he too would be killed. She didn't tell the police about it because it was twenty years after the fact, when Karasuma had already passed on, his family died out, and the house fall into other hands. Presumably a victim of his treasure hunting fanaticism, Senma did solve the riddle, and left a clue about it in a note letters written in blood on the piano ("I've finally gotten hold of the trump card that will decipher Karasuma's riddle, Kyosuke Senma."), revealed with luminol in the dark, and Karasuma never activated the device clock because never knew the key to the riddle, that was "Trump card" and he was referring to the respective playing card ranks. He had made copies of the riddle on a cheap mimeograph print on straw paper to hand out, and left one stuck between the piano keys. His old daughter hasn't met Karasuma and, after Conan solved that old case, she turned herself in to the Tokyo police for her partner Shukuzen Ogami's planned murder. His wife is surely dead. He appears in Kaitou Kid and the Murder.
Yakub (ヤクブ Yakubu) is the Princess Latoona's ambitious uncle. The organization had corrupted him through UCAR Inc. (ユーカル社 Yūkaru-sha), a company they runs. He appears in The Wish Put on the Airship.
Eric Gamelan (エリック＝ガムラン Erikku Gamuran) is the Minister of Commerce of the fictional Republic of Cecilia. He appears in The Great Deduction of Three People.
Kazuki Honjou (本上 和樹 Honjō Kazuki) is a certified public accountant in Funabashi, Chiba, and the serial killer who murdered their minor agent Masaaki Okakura before them for revenge of his younger sister Nanako's death entirely unrelated to the organization. Without knowing it, he has taken away the amulet bag with a memory card listing their complete agents that have infiltrated various organizations, that Masaaki obtained it possibly as insurance. The boss orders his subordinates to retrieve the memory card before the police catch the culprit and look into the database. He was found out by Conan, defeated by Irish, and arrested by the Tokyo police for seven planned murders. Since the memory card was destroyed, the organization decided to not kill his parents and his sister's boyfriend, who in fact Kosuke Mizutani and his best friend Shun Sawamura are still alive in Private Eye in the Distant Sea, and let the police take care of him, because he'll get a death sentence anyway, as confirmed by Conan and Mizutani. He appears in The Raven Chaser.
Kiyonaga Matsumoto, as a superintendent of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, was kidnapped by the organization under their head's order, so Irish could disguise as him and infiltrate the police department.
Latoona (ラトゥーナ Rato~ūna) is the Princess of Panasunugara, a fictional poor country in the African Savannah. She appears in The Wish Put on the Airship.
Eva Port (エヴァポート Evu~a Pōto) is a foreign child idol. She appears in Protect the Luxury Liner from the Virus.
