* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: A lot of the planets featured in the series fall into this category. The most obvious example is that nearly all planets, regardless of size and mass, seem to possess the same Earth-like gravity, even moons and some asteroids. There is also a strange absence of gas giant planets despite the fact that in real life, they're just as common as terrestrial planets.

[[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that the [[GameplayAndStorySegregation gameplay]] involves a ''lot'' of jumping puzzles, which would be much harder if, for example, you had to recalibrate your jump aim with every planet.

* AllThereInTheManual: Many fans and critics didn't know what Ratchet was supposed to be until the later games were released, but the back of the European boxart for the first game clearly called him a Lombax.

* RunningGag: Several, such as "[[NoAnimalsWereHarmed No <animals of the game> were harmed in the making of this game.]]", the inclusion of Dan Johnson (before it became out of respect), Dr. Nefarious malfunctioning, Dr. Nefarious yelling someone's name (usually Lawrence or Qwark), Qwark's crudely drawn "plans," et cetera.

* {{BFG}}: Way, way too many to count--most games start you off with a basic rapid-fire gun and a slow-firing area effect weapon (usually either a grenade launcher or a shotgun), but by halfway through you'll be toting half a dozen guns bigger than you are, with effects like "portable black hole launcher, aim away from face" or "fires missiles which split into mini-missiles which launch bomblets that squirt lightning". In addition, there's usually an [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity+1 Gun]] (usually in the form of the RYNO) which decimates everything but requires lots of money or collectibles to get.
** Even the starting weapons sometimes count. One game's starting weapons included [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "The Mini-Nuke"]] and yes, things escalated from there.

As per TheWikiRule, Ratchet and Clank have their own wiki at [[http://ratchet.wikia.com/wiki/Ratchet_%26_Clank_wiki Ratchet and Clank Wiki]]. There is also a second, independent wiki that is walkthrough-oriented called [[http://ratchetpedia.net/wiki/Ratchetpedia Ratchetpedia.]]

** In ''Going Commando'', after Ratchet and Clank fail to catch up with Angela again, they take a few seconds to wonder why they're always late. They both proceed to look at the player accusingly.
