Swamp monsters (a.k.a. Marcel Woodfest) were guards that Sly encountered in Vicious Voodoo of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.


They were brought to life by Mz. Ruby, and they served as a secondary security force tasked with guarding her swamp from intruders. They appeared to be made out of the flora of the swamp, and they used their looks to their advantage. They remained motionless in order to camouflage themselves, and when an intruder appeared, they revealed their vicious nature, using their mighty fists to damage their opponents. If they were hit, their head would split from their body, and both the body and the head would attack. However, if both parts were hit one more time each, they would be defeated. Sly's binocucom states that they're all devoted ecologists.



  • These are the only guards in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus that take more than one hit to defeat.
