Lucky Charms, also commonly called Horseshoes, are items that appear in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. If Sly Cooper collects one, he gains an extra hit-point. If he collects another while still holding one, he gains a golden Lucky Charm, allowing him to take two hits.
Lucky Charms can be obtained in two ways. They can be found hidden within levels, or obtained if the player has a silver Lucky Charm or lower and collects 100 coins. If the player has a golden Lucky Charm and collects 100 coins, an extra life will be granted.
The Lucky Charm was replaced by a conventional health bar in all following games.
- Lucky Charms, or Horseshoes, were slated to make a return in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time in a New Game+ mode called "Horseshoe Mode," as mentioned by Mat Kraemer on the Second Funniest Podcast. This was cut from the final version of the game as the developers ran out of time.
- If the game is manipulated to allow the player to gain a gold Lucky Charm through coins as well as by collecting a Charm that is on the ground, either the Charm that would come from collecting coins does not drop (if the stationary Charm is collected first), or the Charm will bounce in the air (if the coin Charm is collected first). It will continue to bounce in the air as long as Sly collects it before it touches the ground. Once it touches the ground, it will disappear.
- Falling into water or a bottomless pit when the player has a Lucky Charm allows the player to skip the animations of Sly splashing or falling by pressing . Without it, makes the animations unavoidable.
- A Lucky Charm is automatically given to the player if they die several times in a level.
