* BilingualBonus: The unusual case of a bilingual bonus based on English in a foreign film. Miyazaki apparently used ''gooto'' (Gothic) as an adjective for the counterfeit bills and the lettering on Clarice's ring in conjunction with the ''goat'' as an ArcSymbol relating to the Cagliostro royal family as a stealth pun on "goat"—an English word that sounded absolutely nothing like the Japanese word for goat, "yagi." Since puns don't translate well, this led to "Gothic" getting LostInTranslation as early translations of the movie called them "Goat bills" and "Goat lettering" (or "Capran" in the dub).

* LostInTranslation: Early fansub translators and even fansubber-turned-pro translator Neil Nadelman managed to miss that ''gooto'' in the description of the forged bills and the language on the rings refers not to "goat" as in "goat bills" or "goat letters" ("Capran" in the dub), but to ''Gothic'' as in the ancient Gothic language based on the Greek alphabet. (They were apparently confused by Miyazaki's use of goats as an ArcSymbol resulting in a bilingual StealthPun. Unsurprising, as puns don't generally translate well in the best of cases.) It wasn't until the new subtitle translation by Discotek that this error was noticed and corrected.

* RamenSlurp: The cheap ramen eaten by Zenigata and his police force are contrasted with the fancy meals enjoyed by Count Cagliostro. Lupin and Jigen are shown eating spaghetti the same way, earlier (as well as eating ramen themselves as Zenigata pulls up to the castle – you can see the instant ramen bowls in the back of their car along with the other supplies in the early driving scenes, and Jigen catches one that falls out of their gear as they're loading up the car to chase after the burning autogyro).

** 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.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: 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.

** On the other hand, Lupin's happy because he got to [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl rescue a princess]], but one might ask why ''[[FemmeFatle Fujiko]]'' was running around the deathtrap castle under the nose of an ancient counterfeiting ring. [[spoiler:It was so she could steal the '''plates''' from Cagliostro's printing presses - y'know, the ones for counterfeiting money even ''first-world governments'' can't tell from the real thing. So she rides off into the sunset with a king's ransom while Lupin continues his SternChase from Zenigata]].

* AncientConspiracy: The Cagliostro family has been screwing with international affairs through counterfeit money 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.
