  • The character Detective Takagi is named after his voice actor. In the anime he was originally a nameless character called "Detective A" who would appear in the background in some episodes.[1] However while recording for episode episode 66, Inspector Megure's voice actor Chafurin adlibbed asking Detective A "What's your name?", to which Takagi's voice actor mistakenly responded with his own name and replied "It's Takagi".[2] While this ad-lib was not kept in for the airing, the name stuck and is used in this episode and beyond.
  • Several in-jokes are made in the anime regarding Takagi's numerous roles. For example, in Metropolitan Police Detective Love Story (Part 1), Genta remarks that Detective Takagi is probably unpopular with girls. At the end of the episode, Takagi announces the Next Conan's Hint in character as Detective Takagi still preoccupied with Sato and Shiratori.
