Squids, also known as H.P. Squidcraft, were enemy guards faced by Sly Cooper in the Isle of Wrath in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. They served as Sir Raleigh's flashlight guards.


They were humanoid creatures with a squid head. They used a flashlight to spot possible intruders, and would attack by spitting projectile goo, which would home in on their target. Sly's binocucom states that H.P. Squidcraft loves sushi.


  • They were named H.P. Squidcraft, after early 20th Century American horror author H.P. Lovecraft. They bear a strong resemblance to Cthulhu, a monster of Lovecraft's stories.
  • These are the first flashlight guards in the Sly Cooper series.
