The Clockwerk Tail Feathers were used as printing plates by Dimitri, for his Paris counterfeiting operation. Because of their rare alloy, the Tail Feathers would have never worn out. That is, until Sly came in and fought Dimitri. After Dimitri was defeated, he told Sly to take the Tail Feathers.
- The Clockwerk Tail Feathers seem quite large when Sly holds them up, but in the cutscene following Dimitri's boss battle, they are pictured as smaller and Sly is able to hold them in one hand. They are also colored gold-yellow. This could have been made because it was easier that way.
