** Then the ending to ''Thieves in Time''. [[spoiler: The gang was able to restore the time continuum back to what it once was and saved their futures, but Sly went missing after his battle with Le Paradox. When the blimp crashed, Le Paradox was found and arrested, but Sly was nowhere to be found. He had been missing for weeks, and the gang doesn't take it too well, Carmelita especially. She, Bentley, and Murray still continue to try and find the missing Sly. A secret ending confirms that Sly is still alive, but he's been stranded in Ancient Egypt, bringing the game close to a DownerEnding]].

* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: In the second and third games, something will inevitably go wrong, usually on the last mission of the level.

** Another example is Bentley. In the first game, he was the typical MissionControl guy, who did little more than allow Sly to view previous cutscenes and instruct him on the different tutorials, occasionally providing comic relief. From ''Sly 2'' onward, he was promoted to [[MadBomber demolitions expert]], of all things. In ''Sly 3'', seeing as how he is crippled, Bentley [[SuperWheelChair builds a wheelchair that has a jetpack (kind of), multiple explosive devices, and a pickpocketing mechanism.]]

* [[spoiler: BittersweetEnding: ''Sly 3''. The Cooper Vault is destroyed, eliminating the Cooper legacy forever, Sly becomes Carmelita's partner after faking amnesia and the rest of the gang go off on their own way.]]
*** [[spoiler: However, despite splitting up, Sly left his gang with a back door to some of the vault's riches, and the gang seems to be content with the lives they're living apart from one another. Further subverted with the destroyed vault; Bentley says that he and Penelope are making it even more secure.]]

* GreenAesop: Jean Bison's deforestation in the second game and the poachers' strip mining of the Guru's home in the third. Thankfully, they don't harp on it too much. The characters note that it's bad, and move on.
** Even more - they hang heavy lampshades on the fact that, before he was turned into a HumanPopsicle, his "tame the wilderness" mentality was pretty consistent with the values of his time, and you'd probably think he wasn't such a bad guy if not for all that spice trafficking he's doing.
** More like a BrokenAesop in the mining episode though. The process of "saving the environment" from the miners involves Sly's group doing some drilling of their own, disturbing the local scorpion nest and deliberately squishing most of them, causing a massive oil spill, setting it on fire, and releasing radioactive liquid. ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, they keep calling it "Ayers Rock" instead of Uluru.]]) But that's okay, they're the Good Guys doing a Good Thing.
*** Bentley and Murray feed miners alive to a crocodile, just to give it BloodLust so it will chase the other miners. While perhaps not directly undermining any particular environmental message, it certainly makes for quite a case of FridgeHorror.

* BackStab: In the second and third Sly can One-Hit KO enemies if he gets right behind them without being detected. Otherwise he has to brawl, and they usually alert other guards that way.

** Well, a Two-Hit KO at any rate.

** Well, a Two-Hit KO at any rate.rate, since he first hits an enemy upward, then slams them down to finish them off. This is especially useful against larger mooks who would otherwise rip him to shreds in one-on-one combat.

** Sly, between the third and fourth games. In the third, he decides that the cat-and-mouse game with her is actually him being cowardly, and he even [[spoiler: fakes amnesia, giving up his life of crime and his family legacy,]] [[RelationshipUpgrade so that he can be with her]]. In the fourth game, Sly's already considering getting back into crime ([[InHarmsWay because he's bored]]) before the plot gives him an excuse to. He doesn't even seem to consider jeopardizing his relationship with Carmelita as a SadisticChoice.
