Type LUPIN: ~Lupin, The Last Challenge~ (Type LUPIN ～ルパン、最後の挑戦状～ Taipu Rupan ~Rupan, Saigo no Chōsenjō~) is a Special DVD episode of Kamen Rider Drive, and the fifth special in the Secret Mission series.
This special marks the return and final appearance of Zoruku Tojo as Kamen Rider Lupin after his defeat in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle.
One day, Special Investigation unit received a challenge letter from Ultimate Lupin himself. Chase states that he's really unpleasant, since he had been defeated before. Kiriko said that Go wasn't in Japan at that time, but the latter said that he's the one who saved Krim & Shinnosuke before, which Krim complies. When Go asked Shinnosuke what Lupin was up to, Shinnosuke complained that Lupin had tried for him to accept his 'Challenges', some of them including stealing Shinnosuke's mini cars and milk candy. Shinnosuke resolves to bring Lupin to justice this time, and accept the challenge at last.
Lupin instructs Shinnosuke to go to Kuruma History Museum using the challenge letter (Place where Aoyagi Highway, Bessho Avenue & Chuo Highway intersect). Suddenly, the museum exploded, and Shinnosuke transforms into Drive Type Speed to check. There, Shinnosuke found Lupin holding the Taira Koukan (Pun of Tire Change) sword, and Lupin calls himself a Kamen Rider once more. The statement confuses Shinnosuke as they collide in battle.
When Drive asked Lupin why he did that, Lupin exclaims that he'll became a man with 100 weapons & 100 techniques. But Shinnosuke (Using a Rider Kick) quickly realized that it was Roidmude 100 impersonating the real Lupin. Shinnosuke knew that the real Lupin didn't use the 'Kamen Rider' title anymore (as the title returned after Shinnosuke defeated Lupin), which the real Lupin complies. Lupin then took his Lupin Gunner and transforms once more.
Lupin explained to Shinnosuke that Roidmude 100 was the one who tried to dispose of him and unexpectedly, stole the Lupin gunner from him. 100 then summoned 2 Low-Class, numberless Roidmudes to fight them. But Go and Chase intercept as Kamen Riders Mach and Chaser respectively. Shortly, the numberless Roidmudes are finished by Mach's Kick Macher and Chaser's Across Breaker, while 100 was defeated by Lupin's Ultimate Lupin Strush and Drive Type Tridoron's Drift Slash (Using the Handle-Ken). 100 exploded into fireworks and Lupin admires it before leaving discreetly.
Shinnosuke later found the Lupin Gunner, the Lupin Blade Viral Core and a letter from Lupin himself. The letter tells that Lupin was grateful since Shinnosuke accepted his last challenge, he states that his Core was damaged when fighting with 100 earlier, and he can't last long. Lupin also states that he'll fade into legend. Chase states that he can't hate a person like him, although Shinnosuke is still pissed off.
Meanwhile, Lupin was on top of a building, staggering as he reached his limit already. He states that "The Nobility didn't share their deaths with the others", before passing away with his Core disintegrating along.
The film ends as the camera was directed into the Lupin Gunner and Lupin Blade Viral core once again, shining as Lupin's transformation theme (the end part) music is heard one last time.
