Boars were enemy guards in "Turning Japanese" of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. They were employed by El Jefe to serve as his flashlight guards and main security force, and protect the local village near his fortress in Fuedal Japan.


These brownish-red boars are very well built, wearing samurai plating on their chest. They feature a long thin beard and samurai helmet. Their weapon of choice is a small crossbow used to fire small arrow projectiles. When up close, they will try to headbutt its target with their sharp tusks, and they occasionally throw rocks. They use traditional Japanese lanterns as flashlights.

If a macaque or crane enters a boar's lantern range (when not in combat), they bow, suggesting a level of superiority.


Behind the scenes[]

  • These guards appeared in the teaser trailer for Thieves in Time, along with the macaque guards.
  • These guards, along with the mech wolves, are the only flashlight guards in Thieves in Time that were given a falling animation. This can be seen by throwing them off a high place.
  • One of these guards was voiced by David Lodge, who also provided the voice for Toothpick in the game.[1]
  • This enemy appears as a prize in Bentley's Hackpack.
