* In Size Matters, Otto Destruct's plan is to record the fighting styles of Ratchet and steal his DNA in order to create an army of Ratchet Clones. He explains that he is going to use them to capture every intelligent lifeform in the galaxy and transfer their intelligence to himself. However, for some unknown reason, he tricks Qwark into believing that he is his father. Not only does this not help his plan, but it eventually leads to his downfall. In short, why did Otto Destruct want Qwark to believe he was his father?

* How exactly does Gaspar, a volcanic planet filled with oceans of lava, have ''life''? As far as we know, life can only exist if conditions are just right for liquid water to exist, and life needs water to survive. Gaspar is totally devoid of water and is really, really hot, so the presence of complex life like plants and animals that can live just mere ''inches'' from the lava is really baffling.

* Did the Zoni de-modify Aphelion in between ''All 4 One'' and ''Full Frontal Assault''? You may recall that in the intro to ''[=A4O=]'', Aphelion still has the blue paintjob and fancy patterns, but then the ship looks like it did in ''Tools of Destruction'' when you see it in ''FFA'' and ''Into the Nexus''. What happened there?

*** I think that the battle of Gemlick Valley was done out of desperation, since at that point Lawrence could get back and deliver Nefarious to the Great Clock at any moment, where he'd then proceed to willingly and deliberately cause hundreds of time paradoxes until the universe ultimately suffers cataclysmic events, so at that point risking the same once in a single battle is their only option.

** It's explained in the 2016 [[RatchetAndClank2016 game and movie]].

*** I always thought Ratchet was 14 in the first game. Well, I can say that Ratchet was no older than 2 when he was sent to Veldin. This makes sence, as very few people have memories from even the age of 3 (and if we remember the [[{{JakAndDaxter}} rival series]], the hero was barely 3 when he was sent to safety, but does remember "the light").

** Well, it could be fate, as I see Orvus as a living [[{{God}} God]]. He knew that Ratchet was a lombax (and the only one left in Solana), and he foreseen the plots of Chairman Drek, and [[spoiler: Qwark]], and Dr. Nefarious, and Gleeman Vox, being foiled by a lombax (well, he IS a Zoni, and it's possible that they can [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 see into the future]]). He wanted his heir to be with a lombax, so that's why he caused Clank to be created in Quartu. If you read the trivia in A Crack in Time, Orvus actually ''went'' to Quartu, around the time Clank was created.

** I don't think it's a matter of scale. For Gimlick Valley, 10-years is not a short time and there could be more than hundreds of casualties including civilians; they are not small numbers. Considering that the Great Clock's time-slipping ability is for 6 minutes maximum, the Clock could be damaged by turning time back for even more than few hours or days. Changing the past of Gimlick Valley could damage the Clock with similar scale of saving the Lombaxes back. I think it's just a [[PlotHole plot hole]], in my personal opinion.

** Considering that Gadgetron also made a ''Black Hole Gun'', robot suicide drones and whatever else, the {{Mega Corp}}s of RatchetAndClank are basically [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Umbrella]] played for laughs.

** Well, the first case is plainly literal -- the servomotors in Clank's arm need repair. The latter is likely a bit of slang for GettingCrapPastTheRadar, given just how biological these robots tend to act.
