to:

* In ''The First'', Lupin thinks [[spoiler:he's going to die, so he gives out one last smile and addresses his late grandfather.]]
--> '''Lupin:''' It's finished, grandfather.

* The episode "Lupin Dies Twice" (English Title: "Lupin the Interred") has Jigen and Goemon so upset when Lupin is apparently killed by an assassin and upon seeing his "corpse", they vent their grief.

to:

* The ending of the Lupin feature film ''Anime/FarewellToNostradamus'' ends with Lupin and Julia having a laugh, then a MoodWhiplash occurs with the Douglas Building crumbling to pieces with everyone somberly watching the building fall apart, while a song (“Ai no Tsuzuki”, about going on even though the past is gone) plays through the closing credits.
** In context, this was the last Lupin film Yasuo Yamada worked on, and he died before it was completed. The ending reflects that one of the main Lupin cast has gone.

Added DiffLines:

* In Part 5, Fujiko reveals to Ami that [[spoiler: she and Lupin were briefly married. They tried everything a normal settled-down couple would do, but it got too boring and dreary for them, and so they parted]]. They just couldn’t stay together, despite their best efforts to commit and make it work, because they were too much danger-lovers and gamblers to take a stable, content life.
** Later on, she sadly asks Lupin if she’s become a means for him to get killed. She couldn’t help wondering if she’s turned Lupin into a DeathSeeker, and it shows that she cares for him enough that she doesn’t want him to get killed.

to:

* 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.]]

* [[LupinIIITheSecretOfTwilightGemini The Secret of Twilight Gemini]]: [[spoiler: [[GirlOfTheWeek Lara]]]] is trapped in quicksand, and will soon drown. Each of Lupin's attempts to get her out fail, he's run out of ideas, so [[spoiler: Lara]] tells him to go on without her. Instead, he charges up the dune, then back again and hops with her. When she asks why, he tells her that he couldn't leave her to die alone. They both sink together.
