** The game mentions the events of ''Size Matters'', however, making the ShowWithinAShow theory more difficult. Both games, however, are in an AlternateContinuity.



** One cam blame Dr. Nefarious for that. He's probably let the universe know of the clock from Axiom City.



** Maybe before Ratchet arrived, someone else made them a better offer. That was how they abandoned Angela for [[spoiler:Qwark]] in the second game.



** I would suspect it is for either publicity, or having a dimwitted superhero be his bodyguard through manipulation. One must remember that when Qwark announced to Ratchet and Clank that he's an orphan (which is not true, since his mother is alive in UYA), [[TheMole the Luna puppet]] was present with them. It probably would've told Otto about Qwark's parents, and lead to his manipulation.



* In the beginning of Up Your Arsenal, Ratchet and Clank manage to get all the way back to Solanna using something called the 'Gravimetric Warpdrive'. Obviously, it's just a one-off plot device to explain why they're in Solana again, but Clank explains that the GW was built using Blargian scrapmetal. Here's my question: Where did Ratchet get the Blargian scrapmetal in the Bogon galaxy when the Blarg are still all the way over in Solana?

** Maybe the RYNO Salesman sold them to Ratchet? After all, the Levitator blueprints were in Blargian. Alternately, Ratchet might've started on the warpdrive before heading for Bogon, and finished it there. Remember that [=MegaCorp=] allowed him to bring some of his old gadgets (such as the swingshot and graveboots) into Bogon.

* 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.

* 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?

* 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?

Added DiffLines:

*** 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.

*** 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.
