Queen Sakura, sovereign of the [[{{Ruritania}} European kingdom of Vespania]], is killed while the royal court (her brother and son) are out hunting. All indications suggest that she was accidentally shot by her son, Prince Gill, who immediately commits suicide, overcome by guilt. This news is reported around the world, with a [[AsYouKnow reminder to the audience]] that Vespania was already recently in the news, because of the strange new minerals found only there.

With the death of the queen and prince, the young but bratty Princess Mira is next in line. However, Vespania citizens are rallying to say the princess is too young and unfit to govern. To increase the princess' popularity, a trip to Japan is organized. A festival is held at the Grand Hotel West City Tama. Despite her protests, Mira attends the opening, though Keith does all the talking for her. Kogoro Mouri, Sonoko Suzuki, and Conan Edogawa attend (Ran Mouri is running late). At the party, Conan exposes an attempt to assassinate the princess. The princess wants nothing more than to escape from her [[GildedCage condition]], so in the confusion that follows, she sneaks away. Conan notices this, and follows her. Mira runs into Ran, [[IdenticalStranger who looks identical]]. They trade places, Ran returning to the hotel. Mira gets picked up by Fujiko. Conan notices the two splitting up, and Conan pursues Fujiko on skateboard.

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to both ''Manga.LupinIII'' and ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', the film has only two murders and both are offscreen. There's a ''considerable'' amount of humor and comedy throughout, mostly with the Lupin side of the cast - to the point that it approaches parody in the best sense - and it doesn't always mesh well with the Conan-style murder.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Slyly played with. Jigen's cover for being in Vespania is as a special consultant to the local defense forces; dialogue indicates that he's being paid well to open some under-trained grunt eyes to better tactics. It backfires spectacularly when those same forces turn out to have followed his every word... and he apparently used ''their latest heist'' as a lecture example.
** Same goes with Fujiko - she successfully protects and delivers her client (Princess Mira), and is handsomely remunerated for her efforts... but steals the Queen Crown anyway.



* LighterAndSofter: Compared to both ''Manga.LupinIII'' and ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', the film has only two murders, and both are offscreen. There's a ''considerable'' amount of humor and comedy throughout, mostly with the Lupin side of the cast - to the point that it approaches parody in the best sense - and it doesn't always mesh well with the Conan-style murder.
** At the same time, it's still a little DarkerAndEdgier than your average ''Conan'' movie; with how heavily politics play a role in the plot, the situation is clearly more in the realm of the global threats that the Lupin crew have to take on, rather than the typical Conan multiple murder mystery... There's even a scene where Lupin and Jigen discuss the possibilities of Vespania's new super-stealth mineral being a game-changer in warfare, complete with an ImagineSpot of the White House being attacked by a missile.

* CrossOver: Between ''Franchise/LupinIII'' and ''Manga/DetectiveConan''.

to:

* CoolOldGuy: The story's requirements and timing means that Zenigata doesn't get any of his usual ButtMonkey moments, and is instead the ''unstoppable globe-trotting hardass'' he would necessarily have to be to keep up with Lupin.
* CrossOver: Between ''Franchise/LupinIII'' and ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', and it takes pains to showcase both storytelling styles so as to not alienate either audience.



* FriendlyEnemy: Lupin and Conan, despite the animosity, they clearly respect each other by the time the movies over.

* ImmuneToDrugs: That sleep-dart watch Conan always uses on Kogoro? He misses and hits Zenigata this time. Since he's going to be out for a while, Conan starts solving the case in Zenigata's voi- Nope, Zenigata wakes up after ''ten seconds'' to Conan's shock, because that anesthetic is supposed to knock an ''elephant out for a half-hour!''

Added DiffLines:

* SeenItAll: Absolutely ''nothing'' surprises Zenigata this time around, and he has the good sense to just stand around and wait for Lupin to reveal himself. ''Twice!''


Added DiffLines:

** The setting seems to be based on [[{{Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro}} Cagliostro]], or rather what it might look like now.

* AbuseIsOkayWhenItIsFemaleOnMale: It's OK for Fujiko to "examine" Conan to find "the secret to rejuvenation." Yes, the scene of a fully grown woman apparently (we only got the audio) touching a little boy is treated comedically.
