Goro (ゴロ Goro), also known as Ricky in the funimation dub, is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Goro is a young blue russian cat that is Eri Kisaki's pet. He wanders in Kisaki Law Office and also, in Eri's home but was a few times brought to Mouri Detective Agency so Ran could take care of him. He is the keyhole character for Volume 74 that he gained after a popular vote organized by Gosho himself. Eri once had another tomcat that was named Goro but it died because of an illness which incited her to buy another one whom she gave the same name. He also appeared in a video on a video sharing site with the same fashion as Youtube while he was playing with a flower pot.
Goro is a shy cat more shy than Taii and is cute. He only likes to play with his relatives and people he is accustomed to. He was once tempted by a stranger who put catnip to lure him but after a few minutes, the catnip effect wore off. He doesn't like to interact with others and run from strangers. He likes the care provided by Ran, Eri and Midori. He has a strong sense of protection after he tried to stop kidnappers to take Eri. He is tempted to go on treats and candies.
Goro is a small and cute russian blue cat with huge turquoise eyes and small ears. He has huge paws with big claws making it easy for him to climb on walls.
His name comes from the two last syllables in Kogoro Mouri's name making Goro. Eri gave it when she was still in good terms with her husband.
- He is inspired by Gosho Aoyama's cat Kaito which is also a Russian blue breed cat.
- In honor of the release of the 800th manga chapter, Shonen Sunday held a popularity poll/contest containing 91 Detective Conan characters to choose from. Goro placed 19th overall with 40 votes.
