    "The Murdering Marionette”
    Greco is a man revered as a savior for defeating evildoers one after another. Everyone Greco targets dies within 24 hours, killing and being killed by their own comrades. When provoked by Greco, Lupin and the gang head to Greco's church. There they learn that Greco is plotting to manipulate one of them as a marionette to kill the others, so they all grow suspicious of one another. Who is actually Greco's marionette?​

    Previously on Lupin III: Lupin takes a vacation, which is, of course, anything but relaxing.

    The Murdering Marionette. You mean Billy from the Saw movies, or Pinocchio from Pinocchio's Revenge, or Devil Doll from MST3K?

    Christianity is evil. You can always count on that message from Japan.

    Oh, fun, another messianic killer.

    The televangelist knew you would say that.

    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

    Obvious exits are north, south, and Dennis.

    No, don't split up! That's what he wants!

    Plot Twist: None of them were under his control!

    So wait, they're Italian televangelists with Southern American accents.

    "Lupin has a zero percent chance of survival."
    Who do you think you are, Nix?

    Well, it's not Fujiko.

    Nice animation. Shame about the fight.

    You are my marionette. Now...KILL YOUR PARENTS.

    Can one actually hypnotize someone into committing suicide? Self-preservation and all that?

    Makes you wonder why none of Greco's other victims thought of just holding their breaths,

    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

    Seems the puppet has surpassed the master.
