— In-game description[src]
The Smoke Bomb was a gadget used by Sly Cooper to obscure the vision of his enemies in order to easily escape. It could be purchased from ThiefNet for 300 coins in The Black Chateau of Sly 2: Band of Thieves and 200 coins in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. It used a small to medium amount of the Gadget Meter, except in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, where the gadget meter is automatically recharged.
The Smoke Bomb was used by Sly to quickly escape from enemies. To activate the gadget, he stopped and tapped the end of his cane into the ground, creating a cloud of smoke. In Sly 3 and Thieves in Time, the gadget was upgraded so that he could simply throw the Smoke Bomb into the ground while still in motion.
In the Cops and Robbers minigame in Sly 3, the Smoke Bomb is one of four power-ups that Sly can use against Carmelita. This will cause Carmelita to momentarily stop pursuing Sly and cough if she is near the smoke.
The Flash Bomb was an upgrade of the Smoke Bomb, available only in Thieves in Time. It had a larger area of effect, longer duration, and enemies who were blinded by it would not check Sly's last known position. If it was deployed very close to an enemy or breakable object, it would hit them, causing the equivalent of one cane-swing's worth of damage.
