In the famous Detective Conan, Kaito Kid already knew the boy Conan is Shinichi Kudo, the famous detective of the same age as him. Specifically in the anime, Kaitou Kid recognized Conan’s true identity in episode 3: The Last Wizard of the Century.
Following that Kaito Kid while disguised as Ninzaburo Shiratori sought to wiretap phone on board of Suzuki financial group. That’s why he heard all the phone conversations between Conan and Dr. Agasa. Unaware of his eavesdropping, Dr. Agasa called Conan “Shinichi” like the usual two people. Later in the movie 14: The Lost Ship in the Sky, Kaito Kid confirmed that he knew Conan was Shinichi Kudo.
Kaito Kid and Conan’s relationship is very special
There is a slight difference in the manga compared to the anime when the fact that Kaito Kid knows Conan’s identity as Shinichi is still unclear. However, Kid referred to Conan and Heiji in Chap 1018 as “two high school detectives”, which implies that Kid learned the identity of Conan as the famous high school detective Shinichi.
So what is the relationship between Kaito Kid and Shinichi Kudo? Is it a friend relationship or an eternal enemy?
In the manga, Kaito Kid and Conan are rivals. Ever since Kid met Conan, he seemed to always predict Conan’s appearance in his robberies. For a super burglar like Kid himself, Conan makes theft more interesting, while Conan considers Kaito’s robberies to be entertaining due to the fact that Kaito Kid also does not kill and kill anyone in the case. his thief. They both genius minds are simply experiencing the game of the opponent and find a way to overcome the person who is facing him. Unlike Conan in cases where he is always anxious to find the culprit, making him pay for the crime, in cases involving Kaito Kid, Conan is always happy and not impatient because he knows that Kaito Kid is challenging intellect. and his theft is just a way for Kid to prove his ability. The purpose of both is not in these burglaries.
Kaito Kid and Conan are the two youngest characters with the smartest minds in the series
That’s the fact that both have the same goal, an enemy named the Black Organization. While the poison of this organization causes Conan to shrink and get in trouble with his life, always being assassinated by the organization’s assassins, Kaito Kid has even more deep feud. His father was murdered by the Black Organization. Therefore, even though he senses Conan is the one who sabotages his perfect thieves, Kid still does not reveal Conan’s identity and repeatedly helps Conan.
Kaito Kid repeatedly helps Conan in his confrontations with the Black Organization
As for our little detective, Conan doesn’t seem to like Kid, he once said “He is just a magic thief”. However, when needed, both parties can set aside their rivalry and work together. In some cases, such as the “adventure in the eccentric house” (chap 475-478), Kid helped Conan save Genta and Conan responded by stopping the investigation that allowed Kid to escape without hampered by functional forces. They eventually became a pair of independent action but quite connected with each other to destroy the existence of the evil Black Organization.
