He is the main character of Magic Kaito and a recurring character in Detective Conan. Kid is a compulsive trickster who is drawn to any challenge just for the sheer thrill of overcoming all hazards in the end. Kid is infamous for having a rather overconfident attitude, always preferring to create as big a bang as possible. He loves nothing more then leading the police in wild goose chases, letting them get within a hair of catching him before exiting one way or another.
He's true identity is Kuroba Kaito, who inherited this role from his late father, Kuroba Toichi.
