Does detective Conan ever get taken seriously as an actual detective, instead of being seen as a mere kid by the main characters? Instead of hiding behind his subtle hints he gives and his voice changer to manipulate someone else as the case solver. If so, what episode does he get taken seriously?

  • Clarification question: how far have you watched/read the series? Also, there's a big potential danger in doing this.

  • I know there are some spoiler dangers and am prepared, i've seen the first 100 episodes.

  • Oh, by "a big potential danger", I meant potential danger to Conan/Shinichi himself, not really about spoilers.

  • FBI, some police officers along with characters who know his identity (including BO members like Vermouth) take him very seriously Aug 4 '21 at 12:44

Yes, Conan is paid attention to by multiple characters. The following characters take Conan very seriously...

  1. Detective Boys: Ai Haibara, Sherry/Shiho Miyano, Ayumi Yoshida, Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya, Genta Kojima
  2. Hiroshi Agasa
  3. Heiji Hattori
  4. Kaitou Kid / Kaito Kuroba
  5. FBI: James Black, Jodie Starling

He doesn't blow his cover, but regular characters pay attention to him down the line. This includes police inspectors. Though, you have to watch a couple of hundred episodes more. Around ep900 this becomes more prominent, but he's still formally just a kid and these kind of moments are more comic relief than anything else.

Of course, he exposes his identity to more and more characters, too, and those take him seriously.
