* {{Fanservice}}: Not as present as in most Lupin films, but it's there; particularly during the pool scene, where Sir Archer has his head in Fujiko's lap, nuzzling her thighs. Plus, the porn vids Lupin uses to bribe his way past the border patrol in Bangkok.

Like the earliest specials, it was storyboarded and directed by Creator/OsamuDezaki, and is his final entry in the ''Lupin'' franchise. It is the first ''Lupin'' TV special where Kan'ichi Kurita voices the title character (Creator/YasuoYamada had died a few months earlier).

The plot centers around [[PlotCoupons three statues]], an aging billionaire, and a hidden treasure. So it should come as no surprise that Lupin [[CaperCrew and his gang]] are out to claim it for themselves. This time, however, they may have met their match, as [[CulturedBadass Sir Archer]] and his granddaughter, [[DefrostingIceQueen Diana]], also have their sights on the treasure. As does The Neo Himmel, a group of neo-Nazis led by [[VillainousCrossdresser Herr]] [[PunnyName Mafroditte]].

It begins with a late night heist of a bronze bear statue, followed by the destruction of the Euro Tunnel, which lands Sir Archer's insurance company, Loyd Insurance, over seven billion pounds in debt. Despite this outstanding amount, Archer remains unfazed; convinced he can settle the affair by claiming the legendary Treasure of Harimao. Granddaughter Diana, almost as wily as her clever grandfather, decides to assist him. At first foils to each others plans, the Archers are forced to team up with Lupin and Company under a tenuous 70/30 agreement. But as the goal draws nearer, allegiances are changed, and it soon becomes a matter of who's playing who.

* AnimationBump: This special features possibly the smoothest animation of any ''Franchise/LupinIII'' related feature. Not a shock considering it was directed by the late, great Creator/OsamuDezaki. (an early entry in his long career was his run as a storyboard artist on [[Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket "Green Jacket"]])
