Either way, Classy Cat Burglars are sophisticated and highly skilled. They target only the finest items (and best-protected) for "liberation", and pride themselves on leaving little or no clue on how they accomplished their burglaries. A fair number of them are independently wealthy and couldn't care less about the money; they just want a good challenge. (GenreSavvy detectives understand that a well-guarded, priceless item is the best bait in the world for these sleek critters). The actual term "cat burglar" comes from the notion that such a person is quiet as a cat (one that never claws its way up the drapes, gets into fights with the dog or [[{{Metaphorgotten}} tears your refrigerator to bits]]).

* In ''[[Creator/MichaelConnelly Void Moon]]'' Cassie fits this role, but is a slightly more realistic version of this character in that she doesn't pull impossible heists, instead focusing on much smaller targets. She and her partner robbed high rollers at a casino before being caught and having her partner killed.

* Meimi's mother, Eimi, from the series ''KaitouSaintTail'' used to be a thief named Fallen Angel who fit this trope rather well. Her daughter, on the other hand, is [[JustLikeRobinHood more the Robin Hood type]].

* ''VideoGame/LegendOfZelda'': Nabooru from ''VideoGame/OcarinaOfTime''. She may be a thief, but she won't steal from women and children and she refuses to kill. This trope could apply to all the Gerudo, really.
