Sly Chance is the owner of the shop Dodgy Dealz and is well known for his very sly ways of buying things off of Monsters. He is a laid-back, cool Monster. If you want to get rid of an item, Sly is happy to buy it from you, but likes to make it some sort of gamble. You have to choose between either getting 40% off the original price in Rox back or "take a chance", in which you can either get a higher or lower percentage of the original price. He encourages you unless you hit 100%, where he wants you to get out.

Sly Chance wears sunglasses inside, wears a brown raincoat with matching hat, in which he stuffs cards. He is pictured drinking a purple liquid and has six arms, four of them with differently-coloured watches, presumably ones he had sold to him.


Character Encyclopedia

Sly Chance spent his somewhat shady mini-monster-hood on the beaches of the Shifty-Snack-Sandbar, munching on Quicksand-wiches. Little else is known about this crooked character's past, or how he became the dodgy dealer he is today, so most monsters should be suspicious of this devious dealer dude.


Originally from the Shifty Shack Sandbar, Sly Chance was thrilled to plant his tentacles on the solid ground of Monstro City. When he's not wheelin' and dealin' over at Dodgy Dealz, he can be found at Gabby's eating quicksand-wiches.
