* Almost every title of the series contains a sexual joke or pun. "Going Commando", "Up Your Arsenal", "Size Matters", and "Full Frontal Assault" are a few examples. Some were so explicit that Sony shot their idea down and forced them to replace it with one that was less explicit.explicit: the original title of "A Crack In Time" was going to be "Clock Blockers," and "All 4 One" had working titles such as "4-Play", "Bros before Foes" and "Fiends with Benefits".



* The use of mild-to-moderate profanity such as "shit", "ass" and "bitch".
* Some of the titles for the games are quite innuendo-ridden too, particularly the US ones. "Going Commando", "Up Your Arsenal", and "Size Matters" are a few examples. They finally got caught in that part of the world with "A Crack in Time". The original title was going to be "Clock Blockers". And "All 4 One" had working titles such as "4-Play", "Bros before Foes" and "Fiends with Benefits". "Ratchet and Clank: ''Full Frontal Assault''" also got through.

* In Novalis, you can see the plumber's butt crack.
-->'''Ratchet:''' Hey, look! Plumber's crack!
-->'''Plumber:''' What did you just say?
-->'''Ratchet:''' I said, uh, 'Look, the Plumber's back!'

* Swapping the syllables of Planet Kerwan reveals the British vulgar slang word ''wanker''.



* After Qwark's ship cannons are destroyed by Ratchet in Gemlik Base's aerial assault:
-->'''Qwark:''' Why, you son of a- [[CurseCutShort *static*]]
* During Planet Novalis' infobot:
-->'''Chairman Drek:''' And if you don't like it you can take your whiny, snivelling, snot-nosed populations, form a line behind me and kiss my- We're still on? Well turn it off, you idiot!
* The name "[[UnfortunateName Drek]]" seems like a harmless villain name, until you know it's a Slovenian slang word for feces.
** Though this is more likely inspired by the ''English'' word "drek," which means junk or garbage.



* During the commercial for the Hygeniator with Qwark, he states that it can take care of any grooming needs. Qwark then turns it on to "demonstrate" and it cuts to a shot of Ratchet and Clank watching the ad. Ratchet closes his eyes, but Clank is [[HoYay suprisingly into it]]. Cue excessive moaning from Qwark.

-->'''Thugs-4-Less Leader:''' Cause I've got wind!... Err, I mean, I'm like the wind! You never know where I might show up next. '''And I blow hard''', and I can be cooling on a warm summer day...
* During the Giant Clank battle above Dobbo, the Thug Leader tells Ratchet when the battle begins that he's gonna "kick your arse", but because it's quickly drowned out by the subsequent noise of battle, it's easy to miss.

* A cutscene on Planet Notak:
-->'''The Thief:''' If your men aren't here pronto, you can kiss this contract goodbye!
-->'''Thugs-4-Less Leader:''' Er, oh yeah?! Well, ''you'' can kiss your, uh, uh... your, your... Ugh. You know what I mean! Ah, dangit.
* In Planet Todano, when robot Fizzwidget is talking about the model rockets:
-->'''Fizzwidget:''' This is the triple B, or big badass bomb.
* "Son of a Qwark!"
* After rescuing Angela on Planet Greblin:
-->'''Angela:''' Here's my employee card.
-->'''Ratchet:''' 20% off discount at Groovy Lube?
-->'''Angela:''' Oh! Whoops! Wrong one!
** The Groovy Lube grand opening is also mentioned in the game's first cutscene.

* On Marcadia again, you get a skill point for reflecting a laser with a gadget, and killing a number of enemies for a high score. Name of the skill point? [[NerdsAreVirgins Reflect on how to score.]]
* A literal case of Getting "Crap" Past the Radar; On Aquatos in the sewers where you mine crystals for the Plumber, his response to what the sewer crystals are once you're finished collecting them basically states that they're hardened ''Amoeboid Turds'', nothelped that the King Amoeboids make a very questionable expression during their death animation, just before their sewer crystal flies toward you.
-->'''Plumber:''' (sniffs crystal) "Fresh from the bowels of a King Amoeboid..." *cue disgusted reaction from Ratchet*
* Everything about Courtney Gears, from her ultra-revealing outfit, to her suggestive dances and her seductive tone. Ratchet explains this clearly.
-->'''Ratchet:''' She's not the hottest pop star in the galaxy because of her ''singing''.



* On Planet Daxx after infiltrating Courtney Gears' headquarters:
-->'''Clank:''' It seems this computer was recently used to edit one of her music videos.
-->'''Ratchet:''' Oh! Let's watch it! I... uh... mean it...uh... it might contain a clue, or something.
* On Holostar Studios:
-->'''Director:''' Alright, Clank, go kick some a- *speaker screeches*



* In the Crash Site, the Supernova Taxi man smokes a big, thick cigar.
* During the Battle of Red Rock Valley on Aridia:
-->'''Galactic Rangers:''' Go give those four-eyed scum-sacs a whooping!



* Dr. Nefarious' "Galactic Idol" audition:
-->'''Nefarious:''' You are my... ROOOOBOT LOOOOOVER!!!! Makin' my spark plugs go ZAP! ZAP! ZAP! with your love!!! Ooh...



* On Aquatos Ratchet and Clank find Slim Cognito hiding out after ‘A small run in with the cops concerning a Suck Cannon upgrade which was mistakenly sold to a minor’. Now consider what ‘alternative’ uses a teenage boy (Although gender was undisclosed) might have for essentially a supercharged vacuum cleaner and remember that once again this game is supposed to be for kids...

* This:
-->'''Ratchet:''' ...me outta this thing you Blarg-headed Frakmonkey! I can barely breathe and my tail feels like it's shoved right up my a-"



* "It's time to blow S$#!@# up!"
* "He's a pompous B$#%@$ with a charisma of Blargian-gnat cheese!"
* "Well, I'll be damned, that's hot!"
* "Damn, how do you like me now?"
* "Kick his furry ass!"

* Some of the titles for the games are quite innuendo-ridden too, particularly the US ones. "Going Commando", "Up Your Arsenal", and "Size Matters" are a few examples. They finally got caught in that part of the world with "A Crack in Time". The original title was going to be "Clock Blockers". And "All 4 One" had working titles such as "4-Play", "Bros before Foes" and "Fiends with Benefits". Ratchet and Clank: ''Full Frontal Assault.'' also got through.

** The latest Ratchet and Clank game has conquered the radars once again in that department (at least in the US anyway, elsewhere it's title is Ratchet and Clank: Q-Force) with this gem: Ratchet and Clank: ''Full Frontal Assault.''

''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' is a platforming & third-person shooter series that stars Ratchet, a gun-wielding Lombax, and his robot friend Clank. Although the game is animated and is generally rated E10+ or T by the ESRB, they often get away with certain things that defy their kid-friendly ratings. Hell, even developers Insomniac Games stated that Ratchet & Clank's main audience isn't kids, but late teenagers and adults.
