Maybe Lupin the Third will show up at your Dark Souls 3 fight club, too

YouTuber gobt was hanging about waiting for a Dark Souls 3 fight club match in the popular Pontiff Sulyvahn arena when he was matchmade with Lupin the Third, Monkey Punch’s famous gentleman thief.

As well as showcasing an unusual build and some good quickstepping (some of what you might be tempted to call lag in this video is just very good use of iFrames on the Bloodborne-like dagger weapon art), what makes this video so perfect is how perfectly it matches the theme song from the 1978 anime series. It’s amazing how well the climax of the fight meets that of the song.

The soundtrack was nominated by Redditor excel958, who also suggested the near miraculous timing. Perfect things do happen, apparently.

It’s always fun to see a themed build turn up to break the monotony of whatever build is dominating the meta at any given time, and especially one that puts up a good fight as well as proving amusing.
