18th Nov: We've switched servers and will be updating the old code over the next couple months, meaning that several things might break. Please report issues here.
One or more of the characters is a Time Lord.Does this just get added to all the pages by the template or something?
Shin Nohara is Lupin's sonHis real name is Shin Lupin or Lupin the Fart. He has the color scheme of the original Lupin.
Castle of Cagliostro is a sequel to the rest of the Lupin series.Throughout Castle of Cagliostro Lupin is a perfect unsullied gentleman thief, a portrayal directly contrasting those sleazy depictions of Lupin the III featured pretty much everywhere else. Any apparent discrepancies in Lupinís character can easily be attributed to character development.
Zenigata is actually Lupin's father, Lupin II
The Arsene Lupin seen in Night Hood is actually Arsene Lupin Jr. Son of the original and father of Lupin IIIThe timing is just barely about right and his characterization is much colder and and business-like than the original (possibly from having to live and/or serve during the First World War), and he bears a striking physical resemblence to the anime character, the only major differences between them being Night Hood's lighter hair color and blue eyes.
There is no single Lupin III.Drawn from the often-confusing Green vs. Red, this theory states that Lupin is not a single individual, but an identity adapted by successive people inspired by the outlaw. There may have originally been a Lupin III who was the biological descendant of the original Arsene Lupin, but as time wore on, different people took up the mantle of the master thief, and the best of these imitators became recognized as "Lupin III". This explains how Lupin does not seem to age over the years, although it would not explain why his companions and Zenigata have not shown signs of aging. Green vs. Red also seems to suggest that the original Lupin III is still alive, guiding his successors from the shadows.
Riko Mine is the daughter of Lupin III with Fujiko Mine.Because it's too damn obvious a crossover NOT to be true.
The imitators of Lupin in Green Vs Red represent every version of Lupin to ever have existed.The Rupan references are from a character calling himself Rupan the Third. Afro and pink jacket are because that one represents the third series. The main character represents every new writer and Cosplayer who try to make a Lupin. The crazy helicopter pilot Lupin is that 12-year-old kid who is LARPing Lupin "because he blows stuff up and steals 'cause he can!", which is to say the guy who sees Crazy Awesome and thinks it means Crazy + Awesome.
Fujiko is the evil sister of Yukiko Kudo.Here it goes. Although they look different, they got the same hair color and length. It would appear that the latter was once a thief like the former as they go on crime sprees together. This is where she gets the disguise idea. The thing is Yukiko is a good person, despite everything she had done. Later on, she finally got fed up with Fujiko's backstabbing ways that she left her after a heist. Yukiko becoming an actress and being part of the Kudo family is meant to be her redemption. Makes sense, huh? Imagine if those two meet again, it's gonna be one hell of a fight between them.
Lupin watches too much cartoons.Kinda explain of disobeying the laws of physics, huh? Gotta thank the likes of Bugs Bunny and the Pink Panther.
The four fan-suggested episodes (100-103) predicted four major Fanfiction types/characters.Which makes sense when you think about it. Episode 100 gives us shades of the Boys Love Genre in the form of Nai Baba, the shiek with the hots for Zenigata. Episode 101 basically gave us a Crossover with Rose of Versailles. Episode 102 has Brilla, who could be classified as a Mary Sue; she's impossibly cool and clever, gets taken on a date with Lupin, and Lupin ends up helping her in the end instead of robbing her. And Episode 103 makes Goemon inexplicably Bishōnen, complete with wings and sparkles.
Lupin robs the Masters Golf Tournament every few yearsIt's where he gets his green jackets
Minako Aino descends both by Lupin and ZenigataMinako's mother is actually Zenigata's daughter (he mentioned having one, and that his wife left taking the daughter with her), and Lupin decided to screw up with Zenigata's mind by seducing his daughter. The condom broke, and nine months later a girl as crazy as the father and strong and obsession-prone as the grandfather was born.
