* TheIngenue: Clarisse is rather innocent and also seems pretty sheltered. Justified since she was sent to live in a convent after her parents died, and she's only recently returned from there.

* BenevolentBoss: The Count is this to his loyal subjects, so long as they remain loyal. For example, he tells the chief of his counterfeiting operation that he doesn't mind delays in the delivery of his funny money, only that they look as authentic as possible. Also, he shows a remarkable amount of patience towards his close retainer Jodo, expressing mere amusement instead of anger upon seeing photos of Lupin humiliating him and Gustav with one of his own traps and relenting on chewing him out over his failure to stop the fiery sabotage of his counterfeiting operation upon being reminded over the phone that Lupin and Zenigata were about to take Clarisse.

-->'''Zenigata: (blinks innocently)''' "Can you believe it?"

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Averted. This movie is one of the rare times Fujiko ''doesn't'' betray Lupin… depending on how you interpret her running off with the plates.

* AncientConspiracy: The Cagliostro family counterfeiting ring has been screwing with international affairs for at least ''400 years'' - AKA pretty much since money ''could'' be counterfeited. Lupin states that the Cagliostros are responsible for the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crisis_of_the_Late_Middle_Ages Crisis of the Late Middle Ages]], the collapse of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Bourbon Bourbon Dynasty]], funded UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte's conquests, and caused TheGreatDepression.
-->'''Lupin''': (reading ApocalypticLog) ''"Here, Gennosuke Kawakami, Spy for the Japanese Army, met his end. Avenge me. 1904-3-14."''
** The "ancient conspiracy" angle is actually significantly played up by the Macek dub. The original script and the Animaze dub make it clear that Cagliostro wasn't actually ''pulling strings'' so much as it was serving as a mercenary counterfeiter, making its top-quality forgeries available to anyone willing to pay it enough ''real'' money--thus staying too useful to ''everyone'' for anyone to want to invade and shut it down. Significantly, it's carrying on these activities even into the present-day, as Zenigata discovers when he tries to get Interpol to take action but instead provokes a squabble among various nations' representatives over which ''other'' countries are paying for the Cagliostro counterfeits that are flooding ''their'' respective countries.

* TheKingdom: The Dukes were the official rulers and kept up a good front, but the Count's family line was responsible for carrying out the DirtyBusiness.

* ComingInHot: The aircraft Zenigata used to fly Lupin out of danger has caught fire and apparently the only way to land it is to crash it into a huge tree.

Added DiffLines:

* DubNameChange: Since Monkey Punch never gained permission from the estate of Maurice Leblanc to use the name Lupin, this created a copyright problem. PublicDomain laws differ by country, so the name was able to be used in Japan freely, but not in America. As a result, the 1992 Streamline dub has everyone refer to Lupin as "The Wolf".

* {{Ephebophile}}: In the Japanese version, Lupin accuses the Count of this in the wedding scene [[spoiler:before he sets off the stock of fireworks hidden in his archbishop's robes]]. Considering that Clarisse is around 18 by that day, he's probably being facetious and just trying to get under the Count's skin. (Though it's a June-December wedding in any case—what Westerners would, in similar vein, call "robbing the cradle.") It works.
