Rajan: This is it? This is the Cooper Gang I've heard so much about and feared these long hours?
Murray: "The Murray" will renew your fear.
Rajan: Who's "The Murray"? All I see is a fat pathetic weakling.
Murray: I might be big and not as smart as the other guys... but one thing I'm not... is WEAK!

"Showdown with Rajan" was a job for Sly Cooper and Murray in "The Predator Awakes" of Sly 2: Band of Thieves, and a continuation of "Operation: Wet Tiger."


Rajan has finally come out of hiding after the gang flooded his temple. Now, it's time to defeat him and snatch the second half of the Clockwerk heart.


After Sly gets knocked out after Neyla abandons him, it's up to Murray to help his friend out. He must defeat Rajan inside a "natural arena," bordered with an electrical fence. Once Rajan is defeated, Murray manages to pick up the other half of the Clockwerk Heart, but immediately after, the Contessa, Neyla and their bodyguards arrive to bust Rajan and the Cooper Gang, with the exception of Bentley, who was controlling the scene from the chopper. Carmelita shows up as well, but she is framed by Neyla, who shows the Contessa a photo of her dancing with Sly back at Rajan's ball.[note 1] The Contessa orders her men to place Carmelita under arrest, which makes her furious at Neyla. Bentley monitors this from the chopper and sees Neyla for who she really is... a double-crossing liar.


  • After completion of this job, the arena's water level will remain lowered. Attempting to jump down into the arena will result in the player taking damage similarly to falling into bottomless pits, including Sly, despite the fact that it is possible for him to climb out. This could be so that the game does not cause Bentley or Murray to be stuck with no way of escaping.
