Ginzo Nakamori (中森 銀三Nakamori Ginzou), known in the Funimation dub as Mace Fuller, is a character in the manga franchise Magic Kaito, as well as the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan. Nakamori is an inspector for the Tokyo district. He currently spends time on fraud cases, but spends most of his time and energy on the squad that is hell-bent on capturing Kaitou Kid.
Nakamori has been dealing with the Kid ever since he first joined the police force, not knowing that a) he has been dealing with the original Kaitou, Toichi Kuroba, and the new Kaitou, Toichi's son Kaito, and b) that Kuroba is close friends, and somewhat romantic interest, of his daughter Aoko. Nakamori used to be a homocide inspector, but gave that up to focus his time more on Kid.
Though a dedicated and capable officer, Nakamori is always outsmarted by the Kid, and even when he captures the Kid, the Kid somehow finds a way to escape. Nakamori doesn't like asking for help, but heavily appreciates the work of Conan Edogawa, who often lends him a hand in trying to outsmart and capture the Kid. All of the Kid's cases that involved Conan, end with the Kid giving back the treasure that he robs.
Despite his intense dislike for Kid, Nakamori respects his rival's personality and sense of honor, willingly acknowledging that murder or similar capital crimes are completely out of the question for Kid.
- Nakamori can be compared to Inspector Zenigata from Lupin the 3rd. Like Nakamori, Zenigata focuses his whole sole career around chasing a master thief of a reknown lineage (Arsene Lupin III). Both are respected officers of the law, both are talented enough to keep up with and challenge their target, and both respect their targets despite their opposing positions of the law. Unlike Zenigata though, Nakamori seems more content on finally arresting Kaitou once and for all, while Zenigata has gone crazy during times Lupin was in jail (once intentionally staying there longer just to push Zenigata's buttons.) It seems while Nakamori wants to arrest Kaitou based on his beliefs of the law, Zenigata's pursuit of Lupin has gone to the point of that is what he wants to do his whole life.
