The series is influenced by Rupan sansei (1971), which had a retro setting (Lupin is seen in his green jacket) and darker, more adult and mature content.

Zenigata's Lieutenant Oscar is a parody of The Rose of Versailles (1979)'s female heroine Lady Oscar Francois de Jarjayes, who was a woman in military uniform; in the show Lt Oscar is a law officer with an effeminate look/behaviour. Coming full circle, Lupin had earlier parodied the show in a Lupin the 3rd (1977) episode "Versailles Burned With Love".
