Lucufer (ルシュファー Rushufā?) (sometimes transliterated as "Lucifer", which would actually be ルシファー (Rushifā)) is a Kami[1][2] appearing in the Magic Kaito franchise, getting summoned by Akako Koizumi, usually to get premonitions about the future of Kaitou Kid. He seems to be an abstract deity of evil and is an allusion to the western conception of Lucifer. Summoning him seems to be a highly debilitating act for Akako.[3]

Like Akako herself, he's not a canon character in the world of Detective Conan.[4][5]

Trivia[edit]

Kogoro Mouri is playing Lucufer in Magic Kaito.
  • The fact that he's explicitely described as the "Kami of Evil" by Akako Koizumi could imply that he is also identical to Amatsumikaboshi, the Kami of Evil in Japanese mythology. Fittingly enough, he's also associated with Venus, just like Lucifer.
  • Lucufer is one of the elements of Magic Kaito - besides Chikage Kuroba and the Nakamori residence - that got a drastic redesign later on, looking more like a dark, muscular humanoid figure with pupilless eyes and wings instead of a vague being consisting of nothing but flames. In his case though, it can probably be explained away by him being a Kami who's got the ability to change his appearance at will.
  • In the metafictional Omake of Magic Kaito, it is shown that he is played by the same "actor" as Kogoro Mouri.

    A: "They're different, right? In MK he's the protagonist, and in Conan I try to make him look like cool and there's also Akako in MK."
