|Position||Leader of the Junior Detectives|
Kobayashi was a tall lanky boy, he had little hair, a wide mouth and wore raggedy clothing. He had a mixed pair of shoes, a heel and a sandal on his feet and carried two pails full of excrement at all times.
Kobayashi was implied to be mentally deficient, but was also well meaning and kind, and ultimately ended up being the most competent at his job during Panther Claw's attack.
Kobayashi and the boy detectives were among the many police hired to protect the Golden Buddah statue owned by Paul Tamatoto. Kobayashi and the boy detectives searched the grounds for potential threats and intruders, but ultimately saw nothing.
