Not to be confused with Beauty versus the Beast.

Muggshot: Hey! You're that cop hag that busted me back in Mesa City!
Carmelita: Muggshot, alias "Two-Gun Tony," also known as "Meat-Head" Muggshot. Seven foot three inches, three hundred and twenty-four pounds, wanted in seven countries with thirteen outstanding warrants for your arrest... And yes, I'm that "cop hag" that put you away back in Mesa.

"Beauty and the Beast" was a job for Sly Cooper, Bentley and Carmelita Fox in Flight of Fancy of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.

Background Edit

It is time for the team to deal with Muggshot, as they cannot let him win the finals.


After the ACES Semifinals, the Cooper Gang realizes that they will need to get Team Muggshot disqualified from the ACES Competition in order to stand a better chance of winning the finals. Bentley recently found out that Carmelita is in the area, evidently having tracked them down. They realize that the best course of action is to get Carmelita to arrest Muggshot, as not only will this eliminate Team Muggshot from the competition, but Carmelita will not mind postponing her search for the Cooper Gang in order to deal with Muggshot, who is also a wanted man. However, after the Black Baron found out that Muggshot bribed his guards to sabotage the Cooper Gang's hangar before the semifinals, he is keeping a closer eye on Muggshot and is forbidding him from interacting with the other teams. Knowing that Muggshot will do as he is told to avoid being disqualified, Bentley cooks up a plan.

Bentley enters the hotel to confront Muggshot and bait him into a fight. Muggshot is unwilling to do so...until Bentley makes him angry by insulting his mother. Muggshot agrees to meet Bentley at the Town Square in five minutes for their fight. Bentley leaves the hotel and hides elsewhere. Meanwhile, Sly must find Carmelita and lure her to the Town Square. After Sly manages to slip away, she notices Muggshot, who is still holding a chip on his shoulder from when she arrested him in Mesa City.

Muggshot soon notices Carmelita as well and dared her to try and arrest him again. Carmelita is more than happy to oblige, and a showdown between the two starts. After a long fight, Carmelita knocks Muggshot unconscious and prepares to bring him to jail. She notes that the booking process for Muggshot would be tedious, but reasons that her taking down Muggshot will make Sly think twice about planning anything else soon.

Team Muggshot is now disqualified, eliminating one of the Cooper Gang's biggest obstacles in their mission to win the ACES Finals.
