| Listen, Raleigh. Wipe out my family and steal what's mine, you better expect company.|
— Sly to Raleigh[src]
"The Eye of the Storm" was the final job in Tide of Terror of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. It was the very first boss battle introduced in the Sly Cooper series, with Sir Raleigh as the boss.
After unlocking the cannon, Sly hopped inside and blasted his way up to the storm machine and confronted Raleigh, who claimed he was going to squash Sly like a bug. With Sly determined to reclaim what was rightfully his, he engaged in a fight with the frog.
The battle began with Raleigh bloating up to gigantic size by eating a bumble bee. The frog bounced around the arena, trying to smash Sly, but the raccoon managed to dodge all of his attacks, landing a few blows on Raleigh. When he got down to his last bit of health, in an act of desperation, Raleigh spun around in a circle with his tongue outstretched, trying to smack Sly into the water, but Sly was able to overcome the frog and land a final blow that sent Raleigh into the water. Before drowning, Raleigh mentioned that Sly would be no match for Muggshot, a cohort of his in Mesa City, Utah.
After Raleigh's defeat, Sly reclaimed his page from the Thievius Raccoonus, which provided details on how to perform the Ninja Spire Jump, a move perfected by Sly's ninja ancestor, Rioichi Cooper, who developed the technique while sneaking through the thickly fortified temples of Feudal Japan.
Due to Carmelita's unexpected arrival, Sly had difficulty escaping Raleigh's ship. Though she wasn't able to bust Sly, she managed bust the drowned frog and the rest of his crew. With the storm machine out of commission, the waters were once again safe for sailing, and the history of the Welsh Triangle faded from memory.
With their success of taking down Raleigh, the gang decided to take some time off and enjoy the pleasant weather in England, where Sly took the opportunity to do some stealing in his spare time. They then returned back home to plan their next trip.
- If one looks behind Raleigh, they can see the page of the Thievius Raccoonus behind him in his chair. However, in the cinematic cutscene, Sly steals it from a safe at the bottom of his chair.
