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.
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

Key action sequences in this film were inspired by popular action films of the 1960's and 1970's. The helicopter equipped with duel machine guns was lifted from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), the truck chasing Lupin and company was a nod to the film Duel (1971), and the red mini-cooper Lupin drove was a homage to mini-coopers utilized in The Italian Job (1969).

Time and youth have limit that's why we feel they're valuable.
I was traumatized with this movie in my childhood. But I couldn't understand a content enough for the first time because I was child. Now, I became an adult while keeping disliked creepy design. Although I was a big fan of Lupin the 3rd series, it was only a movie I disliked. Now I felt it was creepy absolutely.
Although I was afraid it why I didn't know before, I understood it now. I didn't think it had such a magnific theme.
