|“||I'm never asking for your opinion again.||”|
—Ryo Inoue, to Kensuke Hanasaki.
Inoue has black hair, vibrant green eyes, and tanned skin. His eyes can also be described as piercing and intense. He is mostly seen wearing his school uniform. Even though his left leg was not injured during the accident, he still could not stand up during his rehab. This was due to the psychological trauma which was just that severe. According to one of the nurses in Episode 5, it was "all in his head." In the subsequent episodes, when the club is faced with parlous situations, he gets out of his wheelchair and walks but it is only for a short span of time.
Inoue is strict and prefers to take charge of situations. He considers himself to be a logical and just leader and he expects the people around him to listen. If he is ignored or spoken against, Inoue becomes irritable.
One of the reasons that he does not like Kobayashi is that Kobayashi doesn't share his beliefs and Kobayashi feels little need to listen. In the beginning, Inoue thought of Kobayashi as a threat.
Inoue, despite his self-restraint, tends to be ruled by his emotions and acts without thought in dire situations.
Ryo Inoue was the former leader of the Boy Detectives Club, before he left the position altogether and handed it to Hanasaki. He is smart, and is trusted and respected by all the Boy Detectives Club members. He now runs the Akechi Investigation Firm and the Boy Detectives' Club after Kogoro Akechi disappeared with the Fiend With Twenty Faces in Episode 24.
♦ Inoue has a Robotic Prosthetic right leg.
