!Games:

* AngstWhatAngst: For a guy who saw his parents killed in front of his eyes--[[HarmfulToMinors as a child]], no less--Sly's a pretty level guy.
** It must've helped that he and his two best friends and wingmen grew up with him in the same orphanage.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Dimitri went from the first boss of ''Sly 2'' to be the first person to appear in the second teaser trailer for ''Thieves in Time''.
** Muggshot, the only villain (not pulling a HeelFaceTurn) to be brought back more than once thus far, appearing in two games and an animated short.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Apparently the games are very popular in UsefulNotes/{{Finland}}.
* GrowingTheBeard: The first game was a good if somewhat by-the-numbers platformer. The second game added the ability to play as [[TheSmartGuy Bentley]] and [[TheBigGuy THE]] [[LargeHam MURRAY]], and removed Sly's OneHitPointWonder status. The third game, while not as drastic a changeup from the first, greatly improved Bentley's playstyle, simply by [[HandicappedBadass putting him in a wheelchair.]] A wheelchair that was filled with gadgetry.
* HateSink: As of ''Thieves in Time'', [[spoiler:Penelope, what with betraying the people who saved her from Lefwee in the last game, several fans hate her now for being an ungrateful traitor, especially since she wants to kill Sly, the one who saved her from Tsao's dragon.]]
** Though there are some fans who believe that [[spoiler: Le Paradox tricked her into working for him]].
* HesJustHiding:
** Some fans insist this about [[spoiler:Arpeggio]].
** Ditto for [[spoiler:[[BigBad Clockwerk]]]].
* HilariousInHindsight: Po from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' is kind of similar to Panda King, isn't he? Knows kung-fu, uses his fat to his advantage, and both works use a lot of fireworks.
* MemeticMutation: Jump and press the circle button!
** To be fair, it's repeatedly Lampshaded in-universe.
* MostWonderfulSound:
** The sounds [[BigBad Clockwerk]] [[spoiler: and Clock-La]] makes, such as the sound of it's wings flapping, and the flanging effect it's voice has, are ''so'' cool.
** The sound of a breaking Clue Bottle.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: You play as a raccoon thief who [[HarmfulToMinors witnessed his parents' murder at age eight]] and seeks to [[YouKilledMyFather avenge their death]] in the first game. In addition, the series contains [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar suggestive humor]], depictions of tobacco use, and references to alcohol. There is even an ''international drug cartel'' in ''Band of Thieves'', which was rated ''E''. To this day, no game in the series has ever received a rating higher than E10+.
* TheWoobie: [[WheelchairWoobie Poor]], ''[[RomanticFalseLead poor]]'' [[LoveInterestTraitor Bentley]].

!2016 Film:

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: While the redesigns of the characters have been mixed, Murray's has received the most flak.
** Kevin Miller not voicing Sly in the trailer, while Matt Olsen and Chris Murphy reprise their roles as Bentley and Murray respectively.
* ReplacementScrappy: Media example. Fan reaction to [[{{TheOtherDarrin}} Ian James Corlett]] replacing Kevin Miller as the titular character has been mostly negative.
