Lives are collectible items that appear only in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. They are designed to look like Sly Cooper's head. They can be collected in two different ways, either by discovering them in the main hubs or sublocations, or by collecting 100 coins while Sly has a gold Lucky Charm. If all of Sly's lives are lost, the current episode will need to be redone from the start.
In "Tide of Terror," stray lives can usually be found in the main hub "Prowling the Grounds" and other mission areas within Raleigh's hideout. However, one can be seen in "Vicious Voodoo," during the job "A Grave Undertaking."
