Slytunkhamen Cooper I was an ancestor to Sly Cooper who lived in Egypt approximately 3300 years before him. He began the Cooper thief legacy with the creation of the Thievius Raccoonus.


Slytunkhamen was the creator of the Thievius Raccoonus, and the one who started the Cooper thief legacy,[1] as apparently none of his own ancestors before him had written down any of their exploits. Sometime during his life, he had a child, Slytunkhamen II, who went on to build the Cooper Vault.[2] Slytunkhamen I was also the developer of Invisibility, which made one completely invisible. However, it restricted movement. Slytunkhamen used these techniques to steal from corrupt pharaohs and greedy noblemen.[1]

Centuries later, Slytunkhamen's section of the Thievius Raccoonus was stolen by the Fiendish Five's chief mystic, Mz. Ruby, who was attracted to Slytunkhamen's paranormal abilities.[1]



  • His name is a reference to the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun (sometimes spelled "Tutankhamen"). If Slytunkhamen were a direct change, it would be spelled either "Slytankhamun" or "Slytankhamen."
  • Slytunkhamen was originally believed to have been one of the, if not the, first of the Coopers. However, with the introduction of Bob Cooper in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, this information is now proven to be incorrect.
  • Huckleberry Cooper's technique was a variation of Slytunkhamen's invisibility technique, with the ability to move while invisible added.
  • Slytunkhamen was originally supposed to appear in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, but was cut out so that the game would fit onto the PS Vita version.
  • He sports a false beard, an accessory worn exclusively by the pharaohs.
