Talk:List of characters who know Conan's identity

From Detective Conan Wiki

Vermouth knows?[edit]

I just recently saw Movie 13, and when Conan starts to suspect the BO knows who he is, he wonders if Vermouth "somehow figured out [his] identity". It's been awhile since I read the story where he confronted her, but now that I think back, I can't remember if she actually figured it out or not. Does anyone else remember better?

In one of the episodes, she writes "Kudo Shinichi," but then changes it to "Edogawa Conan." There's other evidence, but I forgot what. ^^' CarpetCrawlermessage me 22:17, 28 October 2009 (UTC)


Uhhh, I don't think so. I haven't seen all of his anime original appearance, but I don't recall him ever going past just noting that he's pretty smart. That's a bit of a difference from Kogoro being depicted thinking about it and Takagi straight out asking him about it. NakagawaRyou 05:26, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Some of those 'suspicions' are very shaky at best. Kogoro has never been suspicious beyond any offhand remark that was probably meant as a joke. Both Shiratori and Sato have noted that Conan is very smart, but neither of them have shown any sign of thinking he is anything more than a child. There is however some indication that Jodie Starling may suspect Conan's identity: IIRC, she refers to Shinichi as "Cool Boy" and to Conan as "Cool Kid", which shows she at least suspects some connection between the two.

That's what I was saying. The "Suspicions" are for people who been shown questioning exactly who Conan is, not characters who have merely noted how bright he is for a child.
As for Kogorou: In the incident listed, he does in fact think to himself "Wait! He's done this before, too... Whenever I've been stuck, he always gives me some kind of hint... He ain't no normal kid... Who are you? What are you?" (Manga File 11: The Perfect Alibi, as translated by Blink). NakagawaRyou 04:13, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't think Shiratori should be on the list either. As for Jodie, she may know (same with Okiya), but she hasn't said anything about it. The cool guy was a reference to Vermouth's picture captions. I'm going to be bold and take Shiratori out. Sato I think should go out for the same reasons. Kogoro, I wonder about because there were some comments to the suspicious effect very early in the manga, but since. There could be case either way.Chekhov MacGuffin talk 22:31, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, although it was just the one time with Kogorou, he has seriously questioning it. All of his thoughts suddenly switched to Conan. It's also noteworthy for being the first time someone questioned Conan's identity. NakagawaRyou 03:12, 31 March 2011 (UTC)


Miwako Sato[edit]

Sato, like Shiratori and Takagi, has noticed that Conan is not a normal kid, and sometimes helps him in investigations.

Ninzaburo Shiratori[edit]

Shiratori has often taken notice of Conan's detective skills and how unusual they are for a kid to have. At times, he actually will take note of what Conan says. It has been hinted that he may suspect something, but has not said anything to express so. But if anything, Shiratori definitely knows Conan is not an ordinary kid. However, due to his rather cocky attitude, he usually shrugs it off to solve the case. Often times, Conan must step carefully around him. (He did so especially in the third movie, though later to discover Shiratori that time was in fact Kaitou Kid)

Pisco ?[edit]

I was just wondering ... When Conan proudly exposes his deduction in the Haido City Hotel in the file 242 :

"Who is there ? Who are you ? - Edogawa Conan, I'm a detective ! - Dete... detective ? So you're the one who gave orders to the police ... Is that true ?"

Couldn't it mean that Pisco, after seeing Haibara shrink again, deduced that Conan was in fact Kudo Shinichi (who was known to have influence on the police) in the same situation ?

We don't know if Pisco knew who Shinichi was - chances are no since he had to ask Conan in the first place. He probably guessed Conan was somebody shrunken like Haibara, but if he didn't know who Conan was before, he doesn't know Conan's secret identity.

It Japan they take your fingerprints when there is a crime & they need your fingerprints so when Conan was in a crime scene they took his fingerprints and attached it to his profile in the police station <-- :), this can be seen in ep. 328 this way Takagi won't be suspicious so please remove the last paragraph in Takagi section. --Al-mousawi (talk) 18:35, 12 July 2013 (PDT)

Talking about him, if he doesn't actually have any suspicious about Conan, does it an oversight? I said it because Conan told him he will explain his real identity in "the other life" and I don't see Takagi silly enough for forget that kind of strange phrase about Conan and start thinking he is not more than a normal boy... HunterConan (talk)HunterConan talk 7:22, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
Not necessarily an oversight, but probably just a storyline Gosho didn't want to follow up on for one reason or another. I don't think Takagi has forgotten about that phrase, but could possibly just be chalking it up to Conan being dramatic because it was a stressful situation or something. And it's not like Takagi had really thoughts of Conan being a shrunken teenager or Shinichi Kudo; the phrase "Who are you?" is something many characters, both recurring and case characters, ask after they experience his intelligence (usually replied to with his catchphrase "Conan Edogawa, a detective.") and doesn't indicate at all that he really thinks Conan is a shrunken teen.--Serinox (talk) 13:53, 29 February 2016 (CET)


I've been wondering, should Mary be added to this list? Because at the end of the Soul Detective case, she referred to Conan as "the boy that [Masumi] met 10 years ago".

She probably qualifies. Chekhov MacGuffin talk 21:20, 30 August 2016 (CEST)
