* TookALevelInBadass: The flashlight guards are notably tougher than in Sly 2. With Sly, it's wise to kill them stealthily, flee from battle if they spot you or avoid them altogether, since they can take a fair beating before going down. Heck, even Murray can no longer one-hit kill them without flame-based gadgets!

* 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.)

* LandOfTulipsAndWindmills: There's an entire level dedicated to this trope: [[LevelsTakeFlight Flight of Fancy]]. It takes places in the Dutch town of Kinderdijk, with a full compliment of windmills, [[DieChairDie flowerpots full of tulips]], fields full of hay stacks, and even a leaky dike. Two of the three flavors of mooks in the level (hares and rams) wear wooden clogs.

* AnAesop: a lot of the game is essentially about being happy with who you are, and that true friends care about and respect each other, perhaps even like family, and that no care and respect towards a group of friends can be extremely damaging.
