Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Framing Lupin for a crime he ''didn't'' commit really, really pisses him off.


Added DiffLines:

* CerebusRollercoaster: The first series has stories like Lupin giving Monkey Punch a tour of his hideout or being talked into robbing a safe while completely drunk...in the same volume as stories about a artist getting revenge on the man who kidnapped him as a child, or a young man and his sister learning the hard way what Lupin's lifestyle can do to someone.
** World's Most Wanted is HotterAndSexier and DenserAndWackier, with more supernatural and sci-fi elements, but there's still the occasional "serious" story, like the TearJerker NoDialogueEpisode, or Jigen's duel in the desert.


Added DiffLines:

** The "San Francisco" story arc has Lupin throwing a knife through the penis of a would-be rapist.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Despite being more edgy than his anime counterpart, every now and then Lupin will show a softer side, like letting a teenage girl tag along with him for a few days [[spoiler:because she's terminally ill and wants to have some fun before she dies.]] Or doing long-distance surgery on Fujiko to save her life, saving a woman from being raped, or reuniting a man with his kidnapped child.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: As mentioned above, the original manga is a lot more violent and sexual than any of the {{Animated Adaptation}}s (save for ''Anime/{{Lupin III| The Woman Called Fujiko Mine}}''), and the protagonists were way more violent and devious to boot.

* ChasedOffIntoTheSunset: Frequently, to the point where Monkey Punch lampshaded it [[http://altjapan.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/06/enemies_of_soci.html an interview with]] GoNagai, admitting that he often tells himself "time for 'em to run!" when realizing he was running out of pages for the story.

* ParodyEpisode: ''Frequently.'' The original Manga stories simply used the Arsene Lupin III character as a vehicle to drive a story, through whatever tale Creator/MonkeyPunch wanted to tell, such as one chapter being a parody of MissionImpossible.
