Jirokichi Suzuki decides to bait Phantom Thief Kid with the Purple Nails, a pair of high-heeled footwear with embedded jewels worth a fortune, in an attempt to capture him. He places the Purple Nails in the middle of a compact town square to prevent the Phantom Thief Kid from escaping with his hang glider. After announcing his challenge to the media, Kaito Kid arrives from the sky and lands on the pedestal holding the Purple Nails. Jirokichi activates his trap and raises four twenty meter tall nets to prevent Kid from escaping the square. Kid grabs onto the Purple Nails and announces he will escape by the use of teleportation; After he disappears in a cloud of smoke, Kid appears atop the roof of a building ten seconds later. He announces to the journalists that one of the Purple Nails on the pedestal was a fake, and that he will return the next night for the second legitimate heel. The next day, Kid attempts to steal the Purple Nail in the same fashion as before but he is stopped by Conan. Conan reveals Kid's trick; After he disappeared in a cloud of smoke, Kid pulled a black cloak over himself and ran towards the building he planned to hoist himself to the roof. Conan reveals that Kid had set up a pulley before the heist, and by using the weight of sandbags and an accomplice, leveraged himself up to the roof. The Phantom Thief Kid then manages to escape with his accomplice and returns the Purple Nails declaring it was not the gem he was looking for.
