| ||This page is about the group of thieves based around a member of the Cooper Clan. For the main protagonists of the Sly Cooper series, see Cooper Gang.|
A Cooper gang is an organization of thieves based around a member of the Cooper family. Oftentimes the gang will have a thief, a strategist and a strongman, though it is possible that a single member can be multiple roles, and there may be more roles, such as demolitionist and frogman.
Cooper gang is a broad term that is used to classify any group of thieves that has a member of the Cooper Clan in its ranks, and though Cooper leadership is common, it is not necessary. The most modern incarnation of the Cooper gang; Sly Cooper, Bentley and Murray; all agree that the gang can be, and often is, led by any member of the group, despite being named for Sly's family.
