Yep, Smith is definitely flying like Lupin in Part V. And the boy looks like a gender-swapped Ami.... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=G9IPXg6UsYM

Probably not the first one in that series, but that’s one Fujiko-esque foil. Plus, there’s a mask like in that spin-off series... https://www.theverge.com/2019/12/4/20995060/james-bond-no-time-to-die-trailer-daniel-craig-rami-malek

Underwater sequence reminiscent of Cagliostro. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=usQJZFi1rU4&t=3s

I guess they liked that grip from The First and Lupin’s eyegear from Part V. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=00gr2d592rc

Hojo told me he met Monkey Punch, and maybe that's why this iteration of City Hunter also has a blue jacket. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-11-26/french-live-action-city-hunter-film-recreates-anime-next-episode-preview/.153719  Oh, and the Miyazaki robot from ep. 155 appears in the Nausicaa movie, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and that 2004 Sky Captain thing.

The Black Widow people might be fond of that imposing beardo from Goemon's Bloodspray. http://themoviebox.net/14812  And let's see. They fight a giant disembodied brain in Metroid and RoboCop 2, as is the case with Mamo. And I think the Mamo animators worked on a similar scene in Akira.

Well, City Hunter does draw much from Lupin III. Both are fun tales too!  :D
