* BrideSwitch: Invoked; The plan for saving Jing King from General Tsao is to trick Carmelita into thinking Sly is planning to take Tsao's place at the wedding to kidnap Jing.

''Sly 3'' plays just like ''Sly 2'', with mission-based gameplay that emphasizes stealth and platforming. The main addition is the inclusion of more playable characters that can be used in select missions, which lend themselves to more variety for completing objectives. Notably, recurring HeroAntagonist Inspector Carmelita Fox is also now playable for the first time, with her turning the game into a third-person shooter while she's being controlled.

* NoHarmRequirement: The game has a quest wherein the objective is to put a massive feral wolf to sleep - non-lethally - by shooting it with multiple darts. Unfortunately, you'll have to sneak up and shoot the wolf at close range, because the darts are so heavy. Without getting upwind of the wolf, because it can smell the sleeping potion in the darts. The player character for this mission? A sentient turtle in a wheelchair. (Possibly subverted by the fact that the goal is the mission is to psychically posses the wolf after it falls asleep and use it to massacre a dozen or so of the level's mooks.)

* TookALevelInBadass: The flashlight guards are notably tougher than in Sly 2.

* WeNeedADistraction: Since Carmelita had become a KnightTemplar and ruined "Operation: Tar-Be Gone!", almost crossing the MoralEventHorizon in the process, subsequent heists would have Bentley plot a distraction for her so that she would not interfere in the main one. For "Operation: Turbo Dominate Eagle", she was distracted with arresting Muggshot. For "Operation: Wedding Crasher", she was tricked into taking Jing King's place as the bride.
* WeWillNotUsePhotoshopInTheFuture: Averted. When Bentley and Penelope exchange photos of themselves after meeting on [=ThiefNet=], the photos are rather obviously altered. The photos weren't even altered by computer - they just taped an photo of their head onto a picture of someone else's body and scanned it into the computer! Penelope's real hand is even plainly visible in her picture! Strangely, neither realized how obviously fake the pictures were until they met in person.

** A minor example. Sly and the main villain Dr. M are arguing over who's the leader of the gang. Sly insists that they're all equal. Dr. M asks if that's the case, then why is it named The Cooper Gang?
** Earlier, during "An Opera of Fear", Bentley calls Sly out on destroying the Blue Vipers if it means protecting [[RivalTurnedEvil Carmelita]] from them despite her being a crime-hating KnightTemplar who wants them both dead, all because Sly "has a thing for her", because with her around, it would be very difficult to stop Octavio and help Murray. "Operation: Tar-Be Gone!" proves that he's right with her near-MoralEventHorizon.

The third game in the ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' series from 2005, and the first where [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Carmelita Fox]] is playable. Set shortly after the events of ''[[VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves Band of Thieves]]'', Sly has learned of the Cooper Vault, a gigantic store of the wealth that his family has accumulated over the years. He must find a way, however, to defeat Doctor M, who has taken over the island where it is located to try to break into it, with many failed attempts. Sly must regroup his old gang and recruit new members in order to succeed at reclaiming his family's history, all while still on the run from Carmelita.

** {{Nerf}}: At the same time, the guard's AI has been changed to make fighting them more viable. In the last game, they were programmed to automatically attack whenever they were hit, turning any fight with one into a battle of attrition and likely a PyrrhicVictory. In this game, they hit harder, but have a much more noticeable tell, meaning even Bentley can take one out without a scratch, [[DifficultButAwesome once the player gets the timing down]].
