Agasa created this super fast skateboard for Conan to help him chase down criminals. Unfortunately, without solar power the skateboard's engine will not work. Although it is commonly shown in the anime and movies, it has only appeared twice in the manga: its introductory case where Conan uses it to keep up with the car where Ayumi had been accidentally locked in a trunk, and briefly when Conan used it to rendezvous with Agasa and Haibara at a restaurant after they warned him about two suspicious people.
The skateboard's engine receives an upgrade in The Last Wizard of the Century enabling Conan to use stored solar energy in order to use the skateboard at nighttime. Once again, it is upgraded in Quarter of Silence, allowing the Skateboard to be converted into a Turbo Engine Snowboard. With its upgrades, the skateboard can outspeed a car.
A new red-colored version was introduced in Lupin III vs. Detective Conan: The Movie that could travel on water and had retractable wheels. The skateboard was destroyed however by Goemon Ishikawa slashing it in two with his Zantetsuken. Haibara later tells Conan that the original blue skateboard suits him better anyway.
In the media
The Turbo Engine Skateboard is one of the most represented gadget on pictures, merchandise or advertisements promoting Detective Conan, as seen on movie posters, DVD covers, wallpapers and more, even though it has appeared in fillers way more than in the manga.
