Bentley: Murray, you're on. Sly's knocked the ruby loose and now we need your muscle to get it to the buyers.
Murray: Muscle on the way.

"Rip-Off the Ruby" was a job for Sly Cooper and Murray in "The Predator Awakes" of Sly 2: Band of Thieves.


The gang planned on exchanging a valuable ruby for some high explosives they could use to flood the jungle.


Murray and Bentley delivering the ruby.

Bentley has contacted a local crime ring. In exchange for a large red ruby, they would give the gang a Cherry Bomb 500 for use in their operation. First, Sly broke the ruby free from the large elephant statue, which Murray picked up and transported to the rendezvous point, by the waterfall. Murray was also warned to be careful as the ruby was extremely fragile and the exchange will be ruined if the ruby was damaged or broken. On the way, in areas that were unreachable to Murray while holding the ruby, Bentley dropped soft trampolines for Murray to throw the ruby to, so that he could then traverse to the previously unreachable area.

Once at the waterfall, a dealer reacted positively to the quality of the ruby and suggested that they bring the ruby to the buyers. The two made their way to the meeting point, where three buyers appeared and took the ruby, promising a Cherry Bomb 500 when it was needed.

Behind the scenes[]

This job was called "Steal the Ruby" in the Sly 2 E2 demo from March 2004.
