* The ending of the second manga series counts, especially if you've been reading since the beginning. A group of killers trap Lupin and the gang on a deserted island, then leave. [[spoiler:Lupin discovers a huge bomb underneath the surface, and after a brief conversation, they all accept their fate with a smile. Turns out the villains were actually an Interpol task force, and their leader was Zenigata in disguise. Pops admits that Lupin always lived for the challenge and that he probably saw through the disguise. He hits a button, and the island explodes. The last few pages of the manga, show Zenigata watching the dust settle and the debris fall, not saying anything, just staring.]]
