Sly Cooper, aspiring thief is required to get his Secret File from the Paris Police Headquarters.
- A-Team Firing: Unless you're standing still, Carmelita fires wildly at Sly but can't hit him. Not only that, but the amount of money wasted in destroying the police cars in the parking lot must be a hefty bill.
- Cool Gun: This is the debut of Carmelita's iconic paralyzing pistol.
- Gay Paree: The level is set at the Interpol HQ in Paris. There is even a brief close-up of the sign "Le' Police International".
- Noodle Incident: Apparently, Sly and Carmelita encountered each other in Bombay, and Sly stole something called the Fire Stone of India from Bombay.
- Police are Useless: Despite it being the Headquarters for Interpol, the only visible security for Le' Police International seems to be a laser grid connected to a single alarm system and reinforced doors. Not only that but Carmelita seems to be the only cop there, waiting for Sly to exit the building after he successfully breaks into her office and steals what he was looking for. Not only that, but Bentley was able to hack into their mainframe and find the combination to her safe. Sure Bentley is smart, but it is still a bad sign that one measley turtle could do that to the mainframe of the International Police Force just to steal paper files.
- Story-to-Gameplay Ratio: The places where Sly can interact with the environment are illuminated with blue sparkles. Here is is established to be visible to the characters, Bentley claiming that master raccoon thieves like Sly can sense "thieving opportunities", manifesting as "unexplainable blue auras."
- Video Game Tutorial: The level is designed to show the player the bare-bones basics of the controls and what kind of obstacles one is meant to expect for the rest of the game.
