* VindicatedByHistory: When Miyazaki made this movie, he put his own spin on the Lupin character, toning him down from the raunchier, more manic version depicted in the manga and animated series (apart from the second half of "Green Jacket", which Miyazaki and Takahata directed). As a result, it flopped in Japan when it was first released the people who liked Lupin for what it was were turned off, and the people who ''didn't'' like Lupin didn't have any reason to watch the movie since no one in 1979 had heard of Hayao Miyazaki. It was only years later, when Miyazaki gained recognition for his original works with Creator/StudioGhibli, and more people watched the movie without any prior ''Lupin'' experience, that it belatedly gained a reputation as a classic. Other animators in both Japan and America liked it and would ShoutOut to it, which drew people in to discover what was being (often subtly) referenced. \\

* FridgeLogic: Lupin has his Walther P-38 pistol melted into slag by lasers in one sequence. One can only wonder how the heat didn't cook off the ammunition in the magazine or fuse the metal into his hand.

Then again, this is the same movie where a car is able to drive up a cliff, so clearly, realism is a thing that only happen to ''other'' people.

** Better Yet On Blu-ray: Since the DVD was released before the Blu-ray, Discotek was able to revise and update its release for the Blu-ray version. It corrected an erroneous listing crediting Richard Epcar as Goemon, and produced a cleaner version of the family-friendly dub revision.

** The Creator/MangaEntertainment/Animaze dub has its own examole on the swearing and whether or not it hurts the film. While the dub is overall more faithful than the [[Creator/StreamlinePictures Streamline]] dub, the swearing is thought by many to have gone against Miyazaki's intentions with the film, while others don't mind. For the former group, the Discotek release includes a version of the dub that removes most of the swearing, though it's alongside the version with all the swearing intact, which should satisfy both groups.

It's often cited as the Japanese equivalent of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', to the point that Creator/JohnLasseter himself admitted that the entire fight sequence in ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' was one giant homage to ''Cagliostro''.

* SequelDisplacement: It's ironic given what people thought of it at the time, but as Miyazaki grew more and more famous, this film went on to completely overshadow most, if not all other ''Franchise/LupinIII'' works, ''Mamo'' included.
