The Venice disguise was a power-up and disguise that Sly Cooper acquired in the job "Guard Duty" in An Opera of Fear of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves for use in Venice. It is designed to fool any Venetian guards, but will not fool Carmelita Fox, who patrols the streets of Venice.


The disguise uses the top half of the attire of a Venetian cane corso guard, complete with a fancy purple and gold tailcoat, what appears to be a red cummerbund, and a bird mask.


While in disguise, if you get within a Venetian guard's line of sight, you will be asked to stop and provide one of several specific passwords. When this happens, Bentley will feed you the code via radio; this will visually show up in a broadcast bubble along with a combination of four face button icons. The four-word code disappears a second or two after the complete code is revealed. You are then required to input the password within a few seconds. If it's inputted flawlessly and quickly, the guard will recognize you as one of their own. If you press the wrong button at any point, or take too long to give the password, the guard will expose you as a fake and attack you, forcing Sly to revert to his default attire. If you are caught, you cannot attempt to fool any Venetian guards until you either take out all the guards that are attacking you or lose the guards.

While in disguise, your physical actions are limited to walking and a very short jump.



  • In keeping with the opera theme, the pool of four words used in the Venetian passwords are all vocal ranges. The words are soprano (TriangleButton), alto (CircleButton), tenor (SquareButton) and bass (XButton).
  • While in disguise, Sly will talk to the guards in an Italian accent. The accent is so terrible that Bentley was amazed that Sly could fool any of the guards in the first place.
