** The first boss, Dmitri, can be this as well. Between lightning fast melee attacks and a gun which, unlike [[ATeamFiring his guards]], he actually knows how to use, he's quite the [[DifficultySpike challenge]] for players used to avoiding or brute-forcing combat. He's almost like a WakeUpCallBoss, except that the only battle in the entire rest of the game that plays at all like Dmitri's fight is... [[ThatOneBoss Rajan]], so he's not really.

* ToughActToFollow: Sly 2 was such a good game that the next two games tried to top it off, but it couldn't.

* BreatherBoss: Compared to the other bosses (or heck, [[ThatOneLevel her own level]], [[spoiler: The Contessa]] is a piece of cake. Her attacks are all slow, weak and pretty easily dodged. Even after she [[spoiler: starts using the Clockwerk eyes on you]], it's quite possible to end the fight without taking a single hit.

* HarsherInHindsight: Sly claims that Carmelita isn't a cruel cop when [[spoiler: she captures Murray]]. Sadly, in the next game, [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk he's proven wrong]].

** Of course, [[spoiler: given how she turns out, [[FridgeBrilliance whose to say that wasn't one of several things she was intentionally faking the entire time]]?]]



*** Even if you don't move, if the guard touches you, they instantly detect you and attack.

* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Dimitri became a huge fan-favorite so much that he appeared in the next game.
** The Contessa counts, but not so much in the role that Dimitri has. The Contessa has been known for her surprising sex appeal and for being a great enemy of Sly Cooper.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The opening cinematic for ''Menace From The North'' has Sly not so subtly adding that one of the two reasons for the Gang to get the Clockwerk Talons from Jean Bison is to save the environment from the lumberjack's logging endeavors.
-->'''Sly''': The world just doesn't need another strip mall.

** The use of spice as a [[GRatedDrug substitute]] of drugs becomes uncomfortable due to the Legal High craze which became an epidemic in certain countries such as the UK in the 2010's.

* LethalJokeCharacter: Though not exactly a "joke", Bentley is far more powerful than he is often given credit for, as his ability to put any enemy that has not seen him (or has seen him, though its more risky) to sleep, then drop a bomb on them for a OneHitKill, is far more versatile than Sly and Murray's [[BackStab stealth-takedowns]]. The level where the player must play only as Bentley may [[FridgeBrilliance have been intended to highlight this,]] [[TookALevelInBadass as it matches Bentley's own story arc,]] though players will be forgiven for [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Uberwald simply being terrified]] instead.
