Gadgets introduced





At the beginning, Nakamori gets ready for a Kaitou Kid heist by getting four trucks with huge, strong wind funnels on their roofs so that when Kid escapes, he will be blown to the nearby river. Kaitou Kid appears, steals the diamond, and as expected, is blown to the river. A large net tries to catch him but he dodges it and goes upriver in a boat. Conan begins chasing him and Kid crashes the boat. He avoids the wreckage with a car and Conan continues to chase him. Conan uses his shoes and kicks a soccer ball at him, throwing the car off balance and sending it into a spin. Conan gets ready to tranquilize Kid and uses the skateboard to sail over the car but someone jumps out of the car into the air and cuts Conan's skateboard in half. Conan figures out that that was Goemon and that the one disguising as Kaitou Kid was Lupin III.

Later, Lupin is talking on the phone with a mysterious man. The man wants Lupin to steal the Cherry Sapphire for him, in exchange for Fujiko's safety.
