Bentley the Turtle is a fictional character and the deuteragonist of the Sly Cooper series, developed by Sucker Punch Productions and Sanzaru Games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. Bentley is voiced by Matt Olsen in all of his appearances to date. Bentley is a turtle and a master thief who uses his brains and inventions in order to help life long friends Sly and Murray on their various heists around the world.
Bentley is very quiet, shut in and a bit of a know-it-all. He is the main brain power in the series, planning the master heist at the end of each level. Bentley is very paranoid at times and is more realistic than optimistic. He is supremely confident in his brain power, and uses it to outsmart various larger foes. Bentley met Sly and Murray at an orphanage the age of 8, and set out with them as adults to retrieve the Thievius Raccoonus.
Of the three main characters, Bentley is the least physically powerful. Bentley relies on pure stealth and technology in order to move about the game. Bentley carries bombs and tranquilizer darts which he can shoot from long distances. His other abilities include hacking, drone controls, and hovering. In the third game, he gains the ability to pickpocket using a fishing pole and a magnet.
Bentley has green skin, an indigo shell with a light brown plastron, as well as beady black eyes that are almost always hidden behind thick brow-line tortoiseshell glasses. Bentley's outfit in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus is apparently casual; he wears a red bow tie around his neck, what appears to be a short-sleeved dress shirt, a watch around his wrist, and a sweater-vest worn underneath his shell.
In Sly 2: Band of Thieves, Bentley wears what appears to be a bulletproof vest along with complimentary knee and elbow pads, showing humorously that Bentley is a safety first type of guy. He also wore a pith helmet on his head. At the end of the game, Bentley is paralyzed, and thus confined to a wheelchair.
In Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, Bentley now wears what appears to be bicycle safety gear and a blue bicycle helmet.
In Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, he once again dons a pith helmet and a bulletproof vest, along with a gray button-up shirt underneath his vest. His wheelchair has also been further modified with robotic arms and boosters.
Bentley made his debut appearance in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. He is not physically playable in this game, but acts as a source of information for Sly as he moves through each level. Bentley is indirectly controlled by the player through a hacking mini game on the final level of the game.
The second game,Sly 2: Band of Thieves, marks Bentley's playable debut in the series. It focuses on a new set of villains: the Klaww Gang. The gang is revealed to have stolen the pieces of Clockwerk. Bentley and the gang travel all over the world to seek out the members of the Klaww Gang and steal back the parts. He is separated from the rest of the Gang when he escapes capture by Interpol in India. He later tracks the gang to Prague, where he is able to stage a jailbreak. He later takes on Jean Bison, a water buffalo and a member of the Klaww Gang, in Northern Canada, and defeats him in combat. He stows away with the rest of the gang onto the final member's airship in order to steal the final part to Clockwerk. However, the real villain of the game is revealed to be Constable Neyla, who seems to be an ally until she betrays them, and merges with the Clockwerk parts to become Clock-La (a portmanteau of "Clockwerk" and "Neyla"). Sly then fights Clock-La over Paris, and as Bentley goes to get the chip which lets Clockwerk live, the mouth closes down and cripples him.
The third game, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, takes place roughly a year after Sly 2. The Gang's main enemy is now Dr. M, a mysterious mandrill scientist who attempts to claim the Cooper family vault for himself. Sly and Bentley recover Murray, who has been in hiding ever since Bentley's accident (which he blames on himself) and then go to find new members of the gang to help them in the heist of the Cooper vault. Bentley and the Gang travel from the Australian outback to the fields of Holland to recruit new members.
Bentley reappeared in the fourth main installment,Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. The plot centers around not only Sly, but also Bentley, Murray, Carmelita and Sly's ancestors, as they team up together and travel through time to restore the Thievius Raccoonus from being destroyed by their new, time-traveling enemy, Cyrille Le Paradox and his henchmen. Despite some rather close calls Sly and the Gang ultimately manages to defeat all of Le Paradox's cohorts and restore the Thievius Raccoonus; however, in the final battle with Le Paradox aboard his blimp, with his time machine malfunctioning, Sly ends up being transported to Ancient Egypt as the blimp explodes, leaving him stranded in the ancient desert. Bentley is last shown attempting to find a way to travel through time again to rescue Sly.
Bentley appeared alongside Sly in PlayStation Move Heroes, along with Jak and Daxter from the Jak and Daxter franchise and Ratchet and Clank from the Ratchet & Clank franchise. He also appears as a non playable character in the crossover fighting game PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
