He is considered an Einstein puzzle solver and has an Orpheus armband, which enables him to use his mental abilities to their fullest potential. Nonoha Itou is Kaito's childhood friend who goes to every puzzle with Kaito and attempts to help him solve them. She is not very good with actual puzzles but is very good at spots and she has an exceptional photographic memory.

The show also features Gammon Sakanoue a puzzle Solver with the title Galileo. He likes to solve puzzles for money and is very competitive with Kaito because of his puzzle solving ability and his relationship with Nonoha who Gammon has a very large crush on.
