You may be looking for Lord Sam Sinister.

Slyboots, formerly known as Sam Sinister, was a villain in Adventurers Egypt theme. He was the partner of Baron von Barron. Both of them were out to follow Johnny Thunder and get the treasure for their own uses before he could. Slyboot's personality was never expanded on much, and he dropped out of set releases after Egypt, with Baron von Barron becoming the main villain. However, he still appeared regularly in video games and other Adventurers media.

When the Dino Island theme was released, Slyboots' North American name, Sam Sinister, was given to Baron von Barron, and his formerly exclusive European name, Slyboots, became his standard North American name. However, despite this, some media such as Soccer Mania still referred to him as Sam Sinister.

When Orient Expedition was released, Baron Von Barron donned a new outfit which seemed to combine elements from his original and Slyboots'. This whole situation has caused much confusion, leading to LEGO recently joking about it in the bio of the Detective.

Slyboots appeared in LEGO Racers as Sam Sinister and LEGO Racers 2 as Slyboots (since Racers 2 took place after the name swap). He was also the goalkeeper of the Adventurers Villains team and also an out-field player in the Intergalactic team in the video game Soccer Mania; yet here he is referred to as Sam Sinister, after the name swap. Slyboots appears in six sets, but later disappeared. According to the audio drama "LEGO SYSTEM adventure: The hunt for the Pharaoh" he was a prize fighter.[1]
