yes, you actually missed two, and those are the two that play a part in this riddle.

I thought those door knockers had something to do with it, but I would have never ever guessed they represented kings.  
 
First I thought King of the jungle, but according to wikipedia, they are also referred to as king of the beasts.
 
Which I think ties more into the "devil clock" and demons.
 
Edit: still have no idea how that helps.  Except maybe there are 4 kings and they refer to a deck of cards somehow.  The 2 door knockers, the hail to the king and the 110, each refer to a king somehow.  Still very confused

The lions are the two kings. Now finish up the riddle. Oh and by the way, Demon's have nothing to do with the riddle, it just sounded cool  Grin

The light and night don't play as big of a role as the right. There is a treasure in here.

To explain a bit: the number 110 is read hyaku juu (literally, hundred ten).  The scratch represents the hiragana 'no', and the final 0 means ou, so the clue can be read as hyaku juu no ou, which is a phrase referring to the lion.  But note that the 'juu' in this phrase is the kanji for animal, not ten.  So here hyaku juu means literally '100 animals', and hyaku juu no ou means literally 'king of 100 animals'.
 
The rest you can read yourself.

This was also from detective conan, but now that I think about it, this might have been too complicated for a wu forum riddle.... bad choice on my part
