For those unfamiliar with the ''Lupin'' franchise, Lupin the 3rd is the grandson of the original GentlemanThief, titular Frenchman ''Literature/ArseneLupin''. Lupin Sr was intelligent, fast, and powerful enough to rival Sherlock Holmes. The grandson is less classy, but even more dangerous. He is normally accompanied by three friends, but this work downplays their influence. He is, however, still chased by a policeman who has dedicated his life to tracking down Lupin, and has collected an impressive arrest record by catching the criminals Lupin has competed with. Criminals like the mages Lupin has been summoned to fight. With the power that comes from being a "Heroic Spirit", Lupin seems to be getting even more incredible.

* DarkReprise[=/=]SoundtrackDissonance: TIM gives every major scene a song from ''Franchise/LupinIII''. During a flashback episode with a chase between Lupin and Kiritsugu TIM says that Kiritsugu's theme is a song called ''Super Hero'', which becomes this if you compare Kiritsugu's and Lupin's view points. The song basically boils down to a "Lupin is Cool" song with lines like "Scream for me, a romantic modern hero" and "Everyone wishes they could be like me" it fits Lupin perfectly as he effortlessly outfoxes two of the world's greatest assassins while saving an innocent life, but from Kiritsugu's angle it becomes a Sarcastic Echo as the lyrics mock him by basically being what he wants a Hero of Justice to be, and in a way, what he wants to be, all while basically saying that a common thief is a better superhero than he is. The song really becomes rather sad if you listen to it and make it Kiritsugu's theme instead of Lupin's.

* FusionFic: In this story's continuity -- and in a major contrast to most ''Fate'' crossovers -- Lupin III was an infamous thief in the Nasuverse and all of his exploits are very well known. Some characters from ''Fate/Zero'' actually met him before his death.

For those unfamiliar with the ''Fate'' franchise, seven Heroic Spirits are summoned from the Throne of Heroes, a resting place residing [[TheLifestream outside of time and space]] that is reserved for those brave men and women whose deeds have become legends, and are now venerated as eternal guardians of mankind, to fight as Servants in the Holy Grail War. However, being a "hero" isn't strictly required, as some of the summoners discover in this story. This means that for Lupin to have become a Servant, he's been dead... For ten years. Most of the Lupin cast members have been forced to move on after his death. Some have handled it better than others, whereas some still long for the glory days when their friend/enemy/rival was among the living.

* BiggerBad: Count Luis Yu Almeida. He's been dead for years but his atrocities still cast a shadow over many characters and have set many tragedies into motion.



* BreakingSpeech: Lupin gives Lancer such a good one about his blind obedience to chivalry and Saber's willingness to put her honor aside that Lancer has a brief HeroicBSOD.



* CutLexLuthorACheck: Subverted. The first thing Lupin does after stealing Archer's Noble Phantasms is sell them for extra cash.

** Justified for [[spoiler:Zouken. Without the Crest Worms infesting Sakura, Zouken can't use her as either a hostage, host, or plant, and Kariya's too far gone for the Worms' removal to really matter. With Byakuya in jail and Shinji overseas, there's no one else around for Zouken to manipulate. The ''best'' he could do is run away on his own.]]
* WartsAndAll: Much like his other fic, ''Fanfic/ADifferentKindOfTruth'', TIM does this to his main protagonist. Assassin is depicted as a nice guy who's generally goofy, but he's also a skilled manipulator and semi-sadistic thrill-seeker. Waver Velvet even says that Assassin might as well be an "ingenious yet hedonistic maniac". Which is a far cry from the LighterAndSofter anime Lupin most people remember, and more in line with the DarkerAndEdgier original manga Lupin.
