Elephants were minor enemies Sly Cooper and the gang encountered in India. They served many purposes; they would patrol the area, power satellites by pushing a lever and were even Rajan's prize specimens.


While the majority of elephants were unable to attack Sly, they carried baboons in a howdah on their backs. If Sly was spotted by one of their spotlights, the elephants would trumpet and alert the guards they were carrying, making them jump down and engage Sly in combat. They could also crush Sly if he was caught beneath their feet.

The prize elephants could attack Sly by hitting him with their trunks while he rode on their backs.[1]
