100% Tantei Monogatari plot overview
Magic Kaito plot overview
Momoko appears (and gets mentioned in the TV special) as one of the girls who gave Valentine's chocolate to Kaito Kuroba. All of the three girls visible were drawn by Yutaka Abe and are intended as allusions: Momoko as the protagonist of his 100% Tantei Monogatari series, "Mamiko-chan" is based on Mamiko Takai and "Kyōko-chan" is named after Abe's good friend, the mangaka Kyōko Fumizuki
Possible further appearances
There's a blonde girl with ponytail and hair over her temples looking like Momoko and being part of class 2-B in chapters 2, 7, 8 and 15, too, most of the time as part of Aoko Nakamori's and Keiko Momoi's circle of friends and these times drawn by Gosho Aoyama. It's left unclear whether it's supposed to be Momoko again, though.
- Momoko Aoyama is named both after Gosho Aoyama himself and after his favorite idol at the time, Momoko Kikuchi. This was a reaction by Yutaka Abe in return to Gosho's one-shot Wait For Me, in which the protagonists are named Yutaka Takai and Mamiko Abe. "Yutaka" and "Abe" came from Yutaka Abe's own name, while the parts of the name "Takai! and "Mamiko" came from Yutaka's then favorite idol Mamiko Takai.
- Gosho Aoyama also confirmed on the bonus page of 100% Tantei Monogatari that he intended to have a battle between Momoko Aoyama and Kaitou Kid once, but it never worked out.
