Mister X is a character of Lupin the 3rd Part 1 and Lupin the 3rd Part 2.


Mister X initially appears as a well dressed, balding, and heavyset man who sat in a dark boardroom with several other high ranking members of The Scorpion Syndicate. After the event of Part 1, Mister X had managed to seek out medical care. Over the next five years, he had his electrocuted body painstakingly rebuilt by the world's top experimental scientists. The doctors were successful in transforming the once pudgy old man into a sleek cyborg; Mister X now appeared as a shiny, robust, metallic android who enjoyed bearing his new herculean frame by rarely clothing it.

The true surname of the Scorpion Commissioner, named Mr. X in the second season, is "Shimada".There is a description in the character setting drawing.It looks like a tall and big person in the video, but it's actually very short.



Mister X is one of the most prominent members of his rogue's gallery. He is the wealthy commissioner of The Scorpion Crime Syndicate, who has a massive grudge against Lupin III and Fujiko Mine.

Part 1 Episode 1

Mister X planned to lure Lupin to the newly constructed Hida Speedway, where he was to be murdered by Scorpion enforcers. The Scorpion desired to eliminate all criminal competition and the jewel thief was their top liability. Seeing as Hida was secretly owned and operated by The Scorpion, it was the ideal place where they could whack somebody and easily cover it up. Mister X knew of Lupin's affinity for motor racing and sent him an invitation to participate in Hida's inaugural grand prix.

Lupin figured the invitation for a trap from the get-go but took the bait regardless, set on outwitting The Scorpion. X and his associates observed the race from the boardroom, staring in dismay as Lupin easily evaded all of their traps. Mister X then noticed Fujiko sneak into the room who was intent on spying on The Scorpion; X promptly ordered his thugs to apprehend the beautiful interloper. After Fujiko is captured, Mister X briefly insults her before he begins to torture her by tickling her in front of his associates, much to her embarrassment. She pleads for her life, but it's hopeless.

Eventually, Lupin was able to infiltrate The Scorpion's headquarters as well when he discovered that it was located within the Miracle Hotel which adjoined Hida. Lupin flooded the building by breaking the water main and stormed into the boardroom, coming to Fujiko's rescue, who almost laughed to death from her torture.

With the whole room flooded, Lupin threw two severed electrical wires into the pool. One of Mister X's heavies inadvertently shot Mister X on the arm as he was being electrocuted, causing him to fall into the water. After this, Lupin made his escape with Fujiko, leaving Mister X and his associates to be horrifically electrocuted. However, he wasn't quite dead. He arrived at the track to see Lupin blowing up the remaining assassins and declared that "Lupin is burning" before collapsing.

Part 2 Episode 1

This time around, Mister X desired not only to kill Lupin but his friends as well. Similar to how he spent $50,000,000 on building The Hida Speedway, X poured a whopping $1,000,000,000 into constructing The Sirloin: a massive state-of-the-art luxury cruise liner.

The Scorpion's official insignia.

X lured Lupin and his gang to the ship under the pretense that it was Lupin who sent them all invitations, intent on reuniting the group. The gang quickly caught on to this and decided to play along until the moment Mister X decided to reveal himself, dodging his murderous attempts in the process. Eventually X was able to trap the group within the bowels of the ship, there he revealed his superhuman abilities and was able to overpower the group with the greatest of ease.

Lupin eventually managed to have the room lights come crashing down and as the fire sprinklers filled the room with water, the light's frayed wires caused the whole chamber to light up with electricity, zapping Mister X once again. As the gang quickly made their escape, X swore that Lupin would never make it out alive and set off the ship's self destruct mechanism, which was conveniently placed within his back molar.

Part 2 Episode 65

Mister X seemingly perished in the blast which sunk The Sirloin and was widely believed to be finally dead. Two years later he resurfaced, this time in his most ingenious form yet: Lupin the 3rd!

On the birthday of a princess who went by the name of Yasmin, X made his first move. He kidnapped the girl and made his escape, leaving behind his calling card. Left distraught, her father summoned the world renowned Lupin gang to his court and made them a generous offer. Lupin accepted and headed for the heavily armed fortress Yasmin was taken to. After evading the missiles and Yasmin decoys that guarded the palace, Lupin finally met face to face with the Lupin impostor.

Mister X challenged Lupin to a duel with water sabers (blades that formed from a high pressure stream of water which hardens into a metallic alloy), but was once again defeated by Lupin. With X disarmed, Lupin was about to finish him off but it was soon interrupted by the appearance of Jigen and Goemon. There was a brief confusion to which Lupin was the real one but Jigen quickly sniffed out the impostor and shot Mister X in the heart, killing him once and for all.

Is Lupin Still Burning?

Mister X appears as one of the main antagonists in the OVA anniversary special and reverted to his original non-cyborg appearance.

He sets up a golden statue for Fujiko to steal. When she heads off on her own to steal it, she's captured and tied to a table by Mister X. After some witty banter, Mister X activates a torture machine, which amuses Fujiko, saying she has no information to share with him, aside from a crush she has on someone. However, Mister X says he doesn't want information; he wants her to suffer. He unzips her skintight suit, partially exposing her large breasts and belly as he turns the machine on. Several robotic hands tickle Fujiko all over her body, making her laugh as she insults Mister X, calling him a "sadistic pervert" while she suffers. He laughs at her agony-filled laughter, telling her that Lupin will perish as she 'writhes in agony', though Fujiko is confident that Lupin can handle it before laughing again.

Mister X reveals to Fujiko that he has allied with Kyosuke to alter history and get rid of Lupin one and for all.
