There is also a raised platform on the right that can be accessed. Eventually, the Negativitron from LittleBigPlanet 2 comes out and begins sucking up things in the background. He will then assault the stage, trying to suck players up and hit them with lasers to drain AP, and he will suck in the antennas and water tower as time passes.
- In Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, the tutorial level in Paris has a well-known glitch to jump into the streets of Paris. While down on the road it is revealed that all of the buildings (besides the police headquarters) can be walked through. The boundary goes on for a long way, ending a bit past the Eiffel Tower which leads to a never-ending fall.
- The third game of the series, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, is the only game in the series that does have a level in Paris; rather, it only has a cutscene at the end of the game.
