Rumble Down Under is the second episode in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. It takes place in the Australian Outback, and the main antagonist is the Mask of Dark Earth.


The Setup Edit

With Murray back on the team, it seemed just like the old times. The gang was back in action. However, Murray was feeling guilty about joining back up with his friends without his Guru's permission to quit his training.

Sly and the gang packed up, whipped up some disguises and traveled to the Australian Outback to find The Guru. Along the way, Murray told several stories about his Guru's amazing abilities and Sly took them into consideration, thinking that the Guru seemed like the best recruit they could've asked for. However, when they finally arrived in the Outback, they found the area was in a state of despair, following an extensive opal-mining project, and the Guru was nowhere to be seen.

The Getaway Edit

After the mask was destroyed, Carmelita just lied there, unconscious on the desert floor. Being gentlemen, the gang, along with the Guru, wrapped her up in a blanket and kept watch over her throughout the night. To ensure that she does not leave empty-handed, they took pictures on Carmelita's camera and left. The next day, she woke up and discovered the camera with Sly's calling card next to it.

For the first time in Cooper Gang history, they have picked up a new member. The Guru is now officially a part of the gang and he joins them on their next journey.

  • In the Sly 3 demo, the sun was in a different direction.
  • It is shown that the Mask of Dark Earth is made of wood, as you can hear the sound of wood whenever it escapes and when it's destroyed at the end.
  • It seems that when a dingo has the mask on, their attacks are more vicious, while kangaroo guards still use their original attacks when they are wearing the mask.
  • Bentley makes a reference to the Sly 2: Band of Thieves episode, A Tangled Web, by showing a picture of himself in the "Mojo Trap Action" mission in his first slideshow.
  • It's the only episode of the series where the main antagonist is not a living being, but rather a mask infused with magic.
  • It's the only episode in the series where the guards do not have a boss they are directly following orders from.
  • There is no music for the "Hungry Croc" mission in the original PlayStation 2 version of the game.
