If you're even half the thief your father was, you'll find it in no time. Good luck, kiddo— Your pop would'a been proud to see how you've turned out.
— McSweeney, after recognizing the visitor to his jail cell as Sly Cooper[1]

Jim McSweeney is a retired criminal who worked with Conner Cooper and Dr. M. His role was very similar to that of Murray's; he was the muscle of the Original Cooper Gang. He is currently living in Heathrow Prison as an inmate.[2]


Like Bentley and Murray, McSweeney shared a brotherly relationship with the Cooper family member he worked with.[1] As a result, McSweeney is a sort of uncle figure to Sly. Following the schism of his gang and the betrayal of Dr. M, McSweeney had nowhere else to go, thus turning himself in to Heathrow Penitentiary. However, before doing so, he hid a map to the Cooper Vault in an Italian museum.[1]

Upon learning of Sly's continued existence after the attacks by Clockwerk and the Fiendish Five, McSweeney summoned Sly to his cell with courier pigeons.[3] After Sly passed his identification test, McSweeney revealed that escape from prison was not his intention. Instead, he wished to tell Sly about the map.[4] After McSweeney told Sly about the map, Sly left the prison to go retrieve the map.[5]



  • McSweeney bears resemblance to Whoopie the Walrus from Sucker Punch Productions's first title, Rocket: Robot on Wheels.
  • In Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, McSweeney is spelled "McSweeny".
