Takagi Wataru is Inspector Megure's assistant officer. One of the lower men in the hierarchy, Takagi is often used by Conan to test theories, although Takagi doesn't always believe that Conan knows what he's doing.
Takagi has an enormous crush on his fellow officer, (and one rank superior) Satou Miwako. The potential romance between them is one of the more popular subplots of the series. So Takagi is often paired with Satou, and occasionally Officer Chiba. He is also friends with Officer Miyamoto Yumi, who seems to have a slight crush on Takagi, but is also helping him get together with Satou.

||Although Takagi's name was no doubt considered appropriate because of Takagi Akimitsu, the detective novelist, it is almost certainly from his voice actor (who also played Genta before Takagi was created), named none other than Takagi Wataru.
||Takagi does not show up until volume 18 in the manga, but he shows up considerably earlier in the anime. Story arc 107 shows he has been on the Beika police force shorter than most of the others, but he has been on since Shinichi's first case (story arc 59), so chronologically before the events in Conan began.
