Sly Cooper: sneaking past both guards and media watchdogs since 2002.

Beware of unmarked spoilers.

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus

  • After you beat Muggshot, Sly calls him a "canine steroid case."
  • Check the top corner of the newspaper after you defeat the Panda King. It reads "Dude, that's kickass!"
  • A description of an enemy called General Tso (not to be confused with the villain of the Chinese level in the third game) in the Kunlun Mountains level reads "Has hairy palms."
  • Carmelita seems to be taking her lack of success at capturing Sly rather hard, if the presence of several empty rum bottles in her office is any indication.
  • A bit less overtly adult but every newspaper headline objectifies Carmelita and comments on her attractiveness (and often race).

Sly 2: Band of Thieves

  • The effects of spice are similar to those of narcotics.
  • Bentley calls Dimitri a "lounge lizard." Maybe that's innocent and punny enough, but in the Finnish dub, Bentley says he's a gigolo. Not kidding.
  • Dimitri got his style of speech from listening to American hip-hop. With this in mind, Dimitri's favorite insult for Sly is crackerbox.
  • Where Murray was hiding his half of the Clockwerk Heart while in prison — one can only hope he was using Hammerspace.
  • Then there's this scene:
    Neyla: [after Sly reveals himself at the ball] Sly Cooper?! You aren't by any chance here to turn yourself in? Old Ironsidesnote  would fall out of her dress.
    Sly: As good as that sounds, how about a dance first?
  • This:
  • In an early demo of the game in the Contessa's second episode, the mission where you collect bad mojo to make a bomb to detach the Clockwork eyes has Murray say this line in an E rated game.
    Murray: What's a bad mofo collector?
Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
  • When Dr. M asks his subordinate Richards in the beginning of the game how his wife and child are, Richards happily answers they are well. Dr. M then proceeds to tell him that he won't be seeing them again, as he has poisoned his drink, simply because he didn't change the security code from "1-2-3" after installing a new system. We then get to see the poor guy die a slow death. The kicker? After that, Dr. M gets the call that water is leaking into his lab. He tells them that he'll be right there, and to bring a janitor up to the elevator because "Richards got sloppy." Sly, who's on top of the elevator, hears the whole thing and doesn't even blink an eye. Yep, that's all within the first 10 minutes of the game.
  • Sly and Bentley are looking for Murray in Italy and start with the local police HQ. Sly sneaks in and makes it to the jail cells, running into Dimitri... who then says that Sly must have some serious "fuzzy dice" trying to break into a prison. Think about that for a moment.
  • During the drinking contest at the lemonade bar in Australia, the dingoes can cheer on their teammates with an exclamation of "Gonzo bugger!"
  • Also worth mentioning is the Giant Carmelita fight in the Australia level. You probably thought, oh we just got to shoot the evil mask off of her, right? Nope, you have to climb up her clothes to whack it off. This, of course, leads to Sly getting very close to some seriously huge tracts of land.
  • When Carmelita busts Muggshot, his last dialogue is "Mother, that you? I'm sorry... I didn't know they was yours." Yeeeah.
  • In China, Bentley informs Sly that breaking into General Tsao's center of operation is a job only "technology can solve." Sly awkwardly tells him to "have fun with your technology." Bentley's response?
  • When Sly pretends to pass himself off as General Tsao, who's trying to forcefully marry Jing King, a jealous Carmelita says that she'll give Sly a shotgun wedding he'll never forget.
  • Black Spot Pete calls Sly a "skinny, malodorous, hairy-palmed bottom feeder!"
  • Captain LeFwee's comment about his "broadside" aiming towards Penelope‚Äôs "sailboat." "Savvy?" indeed.
  • These two lines:
    Sly: Hope that manhole works both ways!
    Sly: I just love pipes... is that okay?

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

  • The first level in Japan with the Geishas, particularly Murray's dance as Madame Geisha while several male guards drool and ogle him.
    • Plus, when Murray's in disguise as a geisha, El Jefe grabs his ass with a lecherous look on his face.
    • Also, according to the story, El Jefe knew about the Cooper Gang's plan of ruining his operation; when he saw Murray in the Geisha outfit, he did not flip out or anything. That means he knew that Madame Geisha's impostor was Murray the entire time, but didn't mind (Think of that what you will).
    • The images scattered throughout and around the geisha house are fairly suggestive. And Madame Geisha's real name, as revealed by one of these images (or at least its concept art)? Miso Horny. She's a rhino, but we all know that's just for plausible deniability. As another example, one of the flashing billboard signs showcases a fox, and gives a pretty big focus on her oh-so-impressive cleavage.
      • Not to mention that the door that El Jefe and Murray enter has a picture on it of Madame Geisha putting a chicken leg into her mouth... what's a four letter word for a male chicken?
  • While escaping from a Wild West prison, Toothpick threatens to cut off Sly's thumbs... and his pinky. This would have been perfectly innocent if it had been written in the plural form...
  • During one mission in Cotton Mouth Bluff, Bentley walks up to a terminal and prepares to hack it. He then says that it's time to "open up a can of hack... AAAAHHH!!!" just as a group of scorpions and spiders start ambushing him.
    • In a later mission in Arabia, Sly has to connect a device to a terminal so Bentley can remotely hack it. This time, Bentley says that it's time to "open up a can of whoop-ASCII."
  • Also, in a game where defeated enemies usually disappear in a puff of smoke, it's a little shocking to see Toothpick accidentally shoot and kill one of his guards. They probably only got away with it because we don't see the actual bullet wound or any blood.
  • After Carmelita defeats the Moat Monster, Galleth comes out the back end, covered in grease. Guess No Disabled Robot Releases Oil was subverted.
    • Even more so, he's still covered in the "oil" in his victory animation.
  • The Siamese Cats in Arabia are all wearing belly dancer outfits, there are drawings of belly dancers in the level, and Carmelita dresses as one for a distraction in the final mission of the level.
  • In the final operation, you have to distract guards as Carmelita by belly-dancing for them, with the aforementioned outfit; Sly makes several pervy comments on this. The kicker? You have to shake the controller/the Vita to shake her ass, all while the guards lean in to take a good look at it. Before that, Murray really wanted to wear the outfit instead.
    • Later on, Le Paradox takes Carmelita hostage. At one point, when threatening to throw Carmelita off the blimp if Sly tries anything funny, he runs his hands greedily along her body, then pushes her over when she chews him out. The last we see of her is being helpless and tied up at Le Paradox's mercy... and then, later, when Sly comes to rescue her, she's back in her regular clothing. What did Le Paradox DO to her...?!
