** Some of his plans hinge on this trope, or the reputation he has for employing it. Such as being liberated from jail by promising he'd never get to trial, using the time in jail and the solitary confinement his threat earned him to alter his appearance by changing weight and mannerism so at trial he spin a yarn about being a poor homeless plucked by Lupin's gang to occupy his cell as the real Lupin busted out. Even the arresting officer falls for it. And as Lupin himself puts it "The deception was so shallow that if anyone had approached it and my disguise from the point of view that it can't be true, I'd have been finished, the disguise was so shallow it wouldn't hold". But since Lupin's reputation for doing the impossible is so great, no one did and they accepted the tale that Lupin had escaped. So he was let out, and in such... never made it to trial.

* FreudianExcuse: Arsène's mother was the chambermaid to a cruel and spiteful Count and Countess. When his mother was ill and couldn't afford medicine on her meager salary he committed his first impossible theft (at age six) by stealing a priceless, historically-significant diamond necklace. Between the thrill of the crime, the significant reward of the prize, and the [[AssholeVictim lack of sympathy he felt for those particular marks,]] Lupin realized he'd found his calling.
