When Lupin heads to the kingdom of Zufu to pilfer its treasure, he incurs the wrath of its psychotic ruler General Headhunter, who places a dead-or-alive bounty on his head that many intend to collect.
Though his father's partner Jigen wants him to take charge of the Lupin Empire and the obsessed detective Zenigata wants him behind bars, Lupin III is only concerned about being with the beautiful (and treacherous) lady thief Fujiko.
In Transylvania, Lupin III, the notorious international thief, is hung and no one is more suprised to learn of that than Lupin III himself, who was alive and well and nowhere near that area at that time. The answer to that mystery, begins to surface when Lupin gets a seemingly ordinary pebble from an Egyptian pyramid for his would-be girlfriend, Fujiko, the mercenary thief, who is in the employ of a mysterious figure known only as Mamo. Intrigued by this bizarre request, Lupin decides to get involved and finds himself in an international chase that has a greater scope and danger than he has ever faced. Written by

The 2003 Geneon dub replaced the film's original ending song, 'Lupin Ondo', featuring singer Haruo Minami (who played the Egyptian Police Chief in the Japanese version), with a reprise of the Lupin III theme. This was apparently due to copyright issues surrounding the song. Discotek's 2013 release contains the Geneon dub with the Lupin III theme as the ending song, but all the other soundtracks on the DVD (including the Japanese audio) use 'Lupin Ondo.' See more »
