or Sly (real name Eddie Cardona Jr.) is one of many who found fame by creating videos of him doing random things in video games and uploading them to YouTube
. Originally starting out as a Call of Duty commentator, with the help of Paper Bat VG
, he then branched out to doing videos of Minecraft, Mario and eventually just about anything he wanted. He is Latino and he is proud of it (sometimes hanging a lampshade
on stereotypes in his videos.) His Twitter profile even says "I don't steal, except on Sundays" He frequently collabs with other members of The Creatures
and on occasions, ImmortalHD

Tropes Provided By Sly Include:
- Art Evolution: His intros have seen this happen to them.
- Big "NO!": When Hipo drowned.
- Also, when a Creeper exploded and took out half of Sly's pets in episode 50
- Bilingual Bonus: Sly's commentary is mostly English, but there are some times where he will speak Spanish, and it's cool for his Spanish-speaking viewers.
- Butt Monkey: Immortal. In Minecraft Marriage, if anyone is going to get killed first, it's going to be him.
- During the second season, even his own wife is against him.
- There was even a series called Sly Breaks Friends Ft. Immortal, which was basically Sly getting Immortal mad by killing him repeatedly and calling him a "racist manatee pedophile"
- Brick Joke: Quite a few in Minecraft Marriage alone: For example, Sly's TNT that he blew up Immortal and Cynthia's house with in episode 13
- Another was saying "Shame" whenever Immortal is around
- Cluster F-Bomb: Sly frequently curses in his videos, not that that makes them any less funny.
- Colbert Bump: It was stated by Sly that Sly Breaks Friends was just to give Immortal more exposure because he felt that Immortal was too "underground".
- Companion Cube: "Hipo" the cute little slime from Minecraft, to the point where he has entire series devoted to finding Hipo again.
- And when he finally found him in Minecraft Marriage, he Squee'd like a little schoolgirl and carried him around until he accidentally drowned coming back to the house
- Escalating War: So many have been started by Sly saying something that one of the other people took offense to and so they did something little which would usually end in something getting blown up.
- Really Sly is prone to starting these whenever he gets bored.
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: A little one was during episode 13 when Immortal set Sly's house on fire, he accidentally set himself on fire as well and when Sly rushed to put the fire out, Immortal tried to go to sleep only to get woken up by the fire hurting him.
- Funny Background Event: Sly's dogs can be heard attacking each other in some videos and even attacking Sly himself.
- Gender-Blender Name: If Sly is in Minecraft and he tames an animal, you can bet he's going to give it one of these.
- Griefer: Played by Sly very well sometimes, but other times...
- Heroic BSOD: Suffered at 3:10 here.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: So many during Minecraft Marriage. He usually follows them up with a "hur hur hur" though.
- Insane Troll Logic: What he uses as part of his tactics to get Immortal mad in Sly Breaks Friends. As quoted by Immortal one time near the end of the fourth video "I think I can feel my brain turning to mush and dripping out the side of my ear. I'm losing IQ by the second trying to figure out your hairbrained logic."
- Loads and Loads of Characters: Minecraft Daily has a lot of people showing up and building houses. Here's a list of all of them for anyone curious.
- Milestone Celebration: Sly's 1000th video
- Never Speak Ill of the Dead: Immortal who had a rivalry with Sly going at the time of the videos, goes up to talk to Hipo and speaks his praises. This is before The Fun in Funeral below.
- Nice Hat: He has one that looks like Pikachu!
- Precious Puppy: Has three! PuppyCop, PuppyNurse, and PuppyChef. PuppyCop and PuppyNurse have enjoyed a bit of popularity in their own right, frequently appearing in Sly's videos and vlogs and even the intro at some points.
- Put on a Bus: Cynthiaa in the new redux of Minecraft Marriage, which was explained by her running away with a Poliwhirl.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: If he gets scared, expect this to happen because of his high-pitched voice.
- Status Quo Is God: A small example in the Game of Life playthrough, Sly had lost his job as a basketball player only to pick up the exact same job 2 turns later.
- The Fun in Funeral: Hipo's funeral during Minecraft Marriage episode 7, which had everybody saying how much they loved Hipo... until Rachel goes up. Immortal starts showering her with clay while booing. This leads to the rest of the group turning on Immortal and killing him before continuing on with the funeral.
- This Is Gonna Suck: During Nova & Sly's co-op of Portal 2, Sly set up his portals and was going through the waves and he met an Emancipation Grill with a pit below him. Sly's reply to plummeting to his doom? "Well, this sucks."
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With anyone he's played online with, due to the way he acts.
- Most notably, Immortal. A series dedicated to "breaking" him and treating him like crap in Minecraft Marriage, but above it all, Sly and Immortal are really close friends who make fun of each other every day. After the finale of Season 2 of Breaking Friends, which had Immortal completely lose his shit and come over to kill Sly, Sly took Immortal out to dinner with a couple of his friends to make up for it.
- During season 4 of Minecraft Marriage, he and Immortal have acted sort of neutral to each other, not killing each other, but not paying compliments to each other either.
