- Executive Meddling: The reason the dub is based on the Italian version rather than the Japanese version (which, among other things, fixed some Off-Model animation). TMS made them do it that way.
- Fan Nickname: To distinguish this series from Lupin III (Green Jacket) and Lupin III (Red Jacket), and to keep up the Theme Naming with those plus "Pink Jacket", some fans call this series "Blue Jacket" and its title character "Blupin".
- The Other Darrin: Everyone from Geneon's Red Jacket dub returned except for Dan Lorge (Zenigata), who retired from voice acting. Doug Erholtz took over the role.
