* DieForOurShip: The franchise fandom is small enough -- and the EstrogenBrigade portion of it especially so -- that people don't actively flame one another, for the most part. The Lupin/Jigen, Jigen/Goemon, Lupin/Goemon and Lupin/Zenigata shippers can often hold quite civil and mature conversations with one another. What they ''will not'' tolerate is Lupin/Fujiko. Or ''Anyone''/Fujiko, for that matter. Granted, she's devious as a cat and twice as manipulative, but you'd be hard pressed to find any named character on the show who ''isn't''. The Lupin fangirls hate her because she's "mean" to their cute little thief (who harasses every attractive woman he meets, including her); the Goemon fangirls don't care for her 'cause she seduced then dumped their man in the first season (the only really justified complaint on this list); the Jigen fangirls agree with their adorably scruffy gunman, that she's "trouble" (again, [[WeirdnessMagnet take a look at the]] [[CartwrightCurse others' track records]]); and the Zenigata fangirls (yep, they exist) just think she's a [[RealWomenDontWearDresses vapid bimbo]] ([[ActionGirl who is capable of building an explosive device powerful enough to destroy a solid oak door]] [[TheSmartGuy but small enough to fit inside a high heel.]] This isn't even taking into account the number of times she's saved her male compatriots' necks by charming her way into serving as TheMole when needed. Or the number of times she's [[IWasJustPassingThrough freaked out at the thought of Lupin being in peril)]].

** The fifth one, made for the 2015 "Blue Jacket" series, enraged the fans since it was leaked, who have criticized it for not being good enough, being rap, the melody, the words, whoever wrote it not knowing the series, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking for one of the two singers using the name Moreno]][[note]]Moreno is also the name of an UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball referee who, in the 2002 World Cup, made some [[{{Understatement}} disputable]] decisions that saw Italy eliminated from the tournament. Since then, Moreno is ''not'' a well-liked name in Italy[[/note]]. Italians being Italians, reactions include parodies, a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ip3Tg8fPFOQ Hitler Rant]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLPWkRaJMp8 an alternative fan-made opening]] that has already proved itself more appreciated, and even [[https://www.change.org/p/no-alla-sigla-di-moreno-per-lupin-iii-quimediaset-it-social-mediaset a petition to not have it aired]]. [[note]]Italian broadcast only, the Japanese opening song for the series is another re-orchestration of the Lupin theme performed yet again by Yuji Ohno.[[/note]]

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Italians Adore Lupin III]]: It's [[{{Understatement}} quite popular]] in Italy, and ''more popular than '''Manga/DragonBall''''' (who consistently places in third place). In fact, it's so beloved in Italy that the Italians have forgotten he's [[ButNotTooForeign French/Japanese]]. He's got localized comics, a live-action film, clothes with him and his gang on are considered "cool" to wear, and smoking a cigarette downward is called "Jigen-style". Italy was also the ''only'' country outside of Japan to get a localization and dub of the 1971 TV series (the "Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket" series). You can find some Facebook pages made as a tribute to the series. Even the main characters have pages mostly or solely dedicated to them. It got to the point that the new 2015 Lupin the 3rd cartoon series not only will take place in Italy and San Marino, but will also first premiere there as well!

** Anime Lupin still scores with Fujiko, [[FriendsWithBenefits on occasion.]] Fujiko plainly admits it to Clarisse, in ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', and she and Lupin get it on twice in ''[[Anime/LupinIIITheSecretOfTwilightGemini The Secret of Twilight Gemini.]]''

** This complaint has also been leveled at Funimation's dubs of the TV specials due to the consistently incorrect pronunciations of certain characters' names. This was finally fixed in ''[[LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine The Woman Called Fujiko Mine]]'', where the names are finally pronounced correctly.

** In another episode, Lupin has an encounter with ''Mephistopheles''. Who then [[AndShowItToYou brags]] about having [[BeatStillMyHeart the former's heart in his hand]]. And then [[{{Squick}} squeezes]] it, making Lupin writhe in pain on the floor, while surrounded by creepy marionettes laughing at him in unison. It's soon revealed to be [[AllJustADream All Just A]] NightmareSequence, but ''still''.

* {{Woolseyism}}: {{Creator/TokyoPop}}'s translation of the manga is clearly not a direct translation, with so many jokes added in that it borders on GagDub sometimes. That said, it works, with each volume having [[http://67.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdi0524ed51rl8q4fo1_400.png at]] [[http://67.media.tumblr.com/dced5800b5bc1a313df3d1236454a951/tumblr_mf3n2kwlKh1rl8q4fo1_1280.png least]] [[http://65.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdi020Hw3j1rl8q4fo1_1280.png several]] laugh out loud moments in the dialogue that weren't there before, usually with added [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]], or a PrecisionFStrike, complimenting the "R-rated comedy" nature of the series.

** Lupin's trademark jacket comes in three different colors Green, Red, and Pink. Fans actually refer to series and movies by which color jacket he's wearing.[[note]] Technically four, if you count the White Jacket seen in the 1974 live-action movie (which most fans don't).[[/note]] The red jacket in particular is the most recognized and typically the most referenced, often serving as a sort of shorthand ShoutOut to the franchise itself... if it's not a shout-out to [[Creator/ShinichiWatanabe a certain Lupin-obsessed director]].
