Toshio Moroboshi (諸星 登志夫 Moroboshi Toshio?) is a character in the movie franchise Detective Conan.


Toshio Moroboshi is the second-in-command of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, then Hakuba's senior deputy and the one in charge when his head is not in function. He is one of the most influencial people of the Japanese police like many other influencial people, a system that is disapproved by many people in the country. About Sleeping Kogorou, he thinks it's because his wife left while he was sleeping that he's stuck with that nickname and Hideki, his sixth grader grandson, used that thought to sully the famous detective.


Toshio Moroboshi is a serious man with a strong built body and a grave expression. He talks loudly and is suggested to be corrupted like many other Japanese important people. He is a person who can not feel dignity, such as not to be very careful of Hideki who continues to take an arrogant attitude, causing inconvenience to other people, but later this nuisance led to the resolution of the murder case. He really likes bronze statues.


He is an almost retreated man with black laid-back hair and a tan skin. He has a moustache and wears a black bow tie on his suit, and is a bit chubby.

Relationship analysis[edit]

Hideki Moroboshi[edit]

Hideki Moroboshi, age 12, is his favorite grandson and future successor as important member of the police, an arrogant, sassy and respectful boy due that birth who has no manners or morals, such as playing mini-games of soccer at party venues. When the ball kicked hit the bronze statue, causing the dagger to be discharged, he came lecture the boy to stop kicking the ball around in here. Hideki then picked the dagger up and returned it to the bronze statue's hand, so later Yusaku Kudo uses it as evidence against Thomas Schindler, who had murdered his college friend Tadaaki Kashimura, the one in charge of game's development. As his paternal grandfather, he loves Hideki more than anything else in the world and told him much about the police, then he is disappointed when the artificial brain Noah's Ark start to toy with his life. Fortunately, to his great relief, including Hideki and Conan, there are only two left at the game's end, so his grandson's life was saved and he is very proud of him.
