In this series, some of the characters act differently
than their previous incarnations. Any tropes that apply to the Lupin III
cast in general belong on the main character page.
Please remember that Character-specific tropes can often be spoilers,
so keep that in mind while reading Character pages.
A master thief, Fujiko is quick-witted and ruthless. Her background is a mystery, and she steals for the pleasure of the act rather than the objects themselves.
Yuki Kaji (JP), Josh Grelle (EN)
Zenigata’s right hand in working to catch Lupin and Fujiko. His professionalism becomes more and more compromised by his personal feelings for Zenigata as the series continues, especially where Fujiko is concerned.
- Canon Foreigner: Strange example as The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is a prequel, but Oscar is still an original creation.
- Creepy Crossdresser: Twice over the course of the series when Oscar is at a sanity low due to his love for Zenigata, he dresses as a woman – once in Prison of Love, where he poses as a schoolgirl to trap Fujiko, and once in Feast of Fools, where he poses as Fujiko to frame her for several thefts and a murder.
- Dirty Cop: Becomes so fixated on destroying Fujiko that he commits several robberies to frame her, kills a man, collaborates with Almeida’s Owlmen, almost blows up a bridge. Just before the explosion, Inspector Zenigata tells Oscar about the day he stopped being a Dirty Cop himself, which triggers him pulling a Redemption Equals Death.
- Driven by Envy: As the Owlmen point out, he hates Fujiko so much because she got what he wants from Zenigata.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
- Effeminate Misogynistic Guy: Oscar is very pretty and wears heels; he is also heinously cruel to Fujiko and uses sexist language freely.
- First Name Basis: Even the credits don’t give him a last name.
- Knight Templar: Subverted. He breaks the law repeatedly trying to catch Fujiko, but it’s not out of good intentions – it’s out of jealousy.
- Nightmare Fetishist: When Oscar finds Zenigata unconscious and covered in stage blood, he remarks how beautiful he looks before mentally giving himself a shake and wailing.
- Parental Incest: Inspector Zenigata fulfills a Parental Substitute role for Oscar. Oscar has worked hard to be the Inspector's right-hand man in the police force after that. Then it's implied by the Owlmen that the way he really wants to repay his debt is to satisfy "urges" the way Fujiko did.
- Parental Substitute: Zenigata found him when he was a child, brushed him off, and made him a police officer. Oscar really wants to repay him for that.
- Redemption Equals Death: Subverted. While he has a Heel Realization and throws himself into a river holding a bomb to stop his attempt to frame Fujiko, he survives (though as one of Almeida’s Fujiko clones).
- Sour Prudes: Calls Fujiko a pig and a spittoon for men to use basically entirely because he wasn’t the one Zenigata used as a spittoon.
- Subordinate Excuse: As mentioned, Oscar works as Zenigata’s assistant and is very very in love with him.
- Trans Equals Gay: Wearing dresses comes up a lot. Posing as a schoolgirl could be excused, dressing as Fujiko while framing her was excessive (isn’t the point of being a master thief not being seen in the first place?), and wearing a wedding dress in his (not) Dying Dream where he flies into Zenigata’s arms… well.
- Yandere: Goes to truly terrifying extremes for love of Zenigata, including becoming a thief himself and committing murder.
