Top 10 Best Sly Cooper Characters

There's something inherently appealing about that thieving raccoon and his eclectic gang of allies and foes. From the dark alleys of Paris to the towering heights of exotic temples, the Sly Cooper universe is full of characters that can both enchant and antagonize. With personalities as vivid as their diverse settings, these characters keep us riveted, level after level, game after game.
The Top Ten
1 Sly Cooper Sly Cooper is the title character of the Sly Cooper video game series, developed by Sucker Punch Productions and Sanzaru Games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita consoles.

He's the main guy for a reason. Sly's funny, and his character is very unique. One of the best protagonists created in gaming. Sly comes from a long line of thieves, and he certainly does them justice. He has the moves, the stealth, and the luck to get the job done.

He would be the best even if he wasn't the main character.

Sly is similar to me, though I'm more violent.

2 Dimitri Lousteau

One of the funniest characters in the entire series. His theme was awesome, and so were his lines. He was a nice addition to the team, and it's great to see that he'll be in Sly 4. He's got the juice, the bling, and most importantly, the greasy sweet. Do you?

Juice! Everything he says is hilarious.

This guy is hysterical.

3 Bentley

The brains of the Cooper Gang and certainly an awesome character. His skill set is very diverse, and he's a genius to the extreme. Sly would be in jail or worse if it wasn't for this turtle. He is the main man behind the curtain when it comes to the Cooper Gang. Sure, he can't do some of the fancy things that Sly can do, but Bentley's ability to plan is integral to the Cooper Gang.

Where would the Cooper Gang be today without this guy?

Wouldn't accomplish missions without him.

4 Murray

He's the brawn, plain and simple. Don't underestimate the power of THE MURRAY. Murray always has something funny to say if he's not bashing skulls or driving the van.

5 Clockwerk

The arch-nemesis of the entire Cooper family. His hatred for the Coopers kept him alive for thousands of years. Not to mention that he killed Sly's father and was the mastermind behind the sinister plans of the Fiendish Five. He will most likely return in Thieves in Time. Clockwerk is just pure evil.

The most intimidating character in the series, Clockwerk has kept himself alive for thousands of years because of his jealousy and hatred toward the Cooper clan. Everything he says is amazing, and his voice is just epic. I will never forgive Neyla for messing up his voice!

He's the only villain in the whole series that I would be intimidated by, plus he looks badass.

6 Inspector Carmelita Montoya Fox

A major antagonist to the thieving ways of the Cooper Gang, but also Sly's love interest. She's saved Sly's rear many times when it mattered most. It will be interesting to see her role in the next game, given the end of Sly 3.

She's a cop, but we love her despite that.

7 Muggshot

Muggshot is an underrated character. He is very unique and has a good and very relatable backstory. His stupidity makes him very funny and entertaining. Not to mention, he was the focus of (in my opinion) the best mission in Sly 3. Also, he walks with his hands. Give him credit for that.
"You know that Thingus Raccomagoocus had a lot of nice pictures but WAY too many big words!"

"What?! My boys have been yappin' about some big mysterious dude runnin' around crackin' skulls and... this is it? You're the monkey wrench in my operation? Some scrawny rat with a stick!"

8 Panda King

The Master of Flame Fu and one of the original members of the Fiendish Five, the Panda King is a pretty complex character. He ends up becoming part of the Cooper Gang despite having helped to take out Sly's dad. His assistance to Sly and the gang ends up redeeming some of the evil deeds he had done.

This guy's flat-out awesome! From his memorable deep voice to even more memorable lines: "Insolent Child! You shall pay dearly for your disrespect!" "Booming Chop!" "Palms of Thunder!" "Fiery Wheel!", and his cool attacks.

Awesome and unintentionally funny!

9 Sir Raleigh
10 Tennessee Kid Cooper

He's the hotshot of Cooper history. And he's funny too!

I think he is so funny, and even Carmelita liked him.

The Contenders
11 General Tsao

By far, he is the most disrespectful, arrogant, sexist, and offensive character in the entire series.

12 Jean Bison

His backstory is that he tried to strike it rich during the gold rush in 1852. He took some chances, blew up the side of a mountain, and ended up frozen. One hundred and twenty years later, thanks to global warming, he thawed out. His Clockwerk parts were the lungs, stomach, and talons.

Strong and frozen. I don't know what he is.

Jean Bison is a red bull. His boss battle is unique out of all the bosses in Sly 2. You play as Bentley, and you use fire, logs, and saws. His weapons are his horns and dynamite.

13 Rajan

Watch Sly 2: Band of Thieves walkthrough episode 13 by Super Saiyan Paul. PLEASE LISTEN! In the Murray vs. Rajan fight, Rajan BODIES MURRAY in that video on Paul's first fight against him. The video made me laugh. Rajan impales Murray to defeat him when he tries to belly flop him.

14 Constable Neyla

The surprise villain of Sly 2. Neyla betrayed everyone that she came into contact with. She wanted to use the power of Clockwerk's body to become immortal, and she nearly did. She was quite the cunning villain and really stands out along with Clockwerk.

15 The Contessa
16 Mz. Ruby
17 Penelope

The RC expert of the group is Bentley's current partner and girlfriend. She's very smart, and her missions were a lot of fun to play. She will almost certainly be in Thieves in Time.

I hate that she became a bad guy in the fourth game.

18 Dr. M

He was originally the brains of Connor Cooper's gang. He felt like a sidekick to Sly's dad and left to find the Cooper fortune on his own. His abilities and intelligence made for a formidable foe to Sly and the gang. His hatred of the Cooper Clan is second only to Clockwerk. His greed eventually led to his own demise.

19 Rioichi Cooper

Dude, he's a ninja. What's not to love?

20 Octavio
21 Sir Galleth Cooper
22 Bob Cooper
23 El Jefe

His boss battle was great! I really enjoyed his backstory too. He is as agile as Sly is, and I loved when he broke the fourth wall!

24 Arpeggio
25 Toothpick

He's a gun-slinging sheriff, and the only villain to capture one of Sly's ancestors and take some extra credit: stealing all of the gold and blaming it on Tennessee Kid Cooper.
