Pronipote del leggendario Arsenio, Lupin III è il famoso ladro gentiluomo che si diverte a pianificare incredibili colpi in giro per il mondo accompagnato da Jigen, suo braccio destro, sigaretta piegata e Magnum Combat alla mano e da Goemon, fedele combattente, tredicesimo discendente di un'antica famiglia di samurai. Lupin è innamorato dell'affascinante Fujiko, astuta truffatrice disposta a voltare le spalle al suo scanzonato spasimante pur di avere la refurtiva solo per sé. Riuscirà il diligente ma impacciato ispettore Zenigata a catturare Lupin III?.
