* TenMinuteRetirement: Difficult to say where this falls into this trope. Apparently, Ratchet and Clank are still retired throughout the game... but it doesn't seem like much of a retirement. [[spoiler: By the ending, Ratchet comments on how it didn't exactly work out and the both of them agree that they prefer hero work.]] [[ZigZaggingTrope Still, they claimed to be retired throughout two separate adventures...]]

* AllMythsAreTrue: [[spoiler: The fairy tale about the Loki and the Cragmite hero.]]
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[spoiler: The Loki.]] Interestingly, the BigBad goes on to ''subvert'' this where the [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Cragmites]] are concerned. During the final battle, he even laments the fact that they're gone. [[spoiler: He wanted to take revenge on them for the cragmite hero who sealed the Loki away in the first place.]]

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Qwark and Nefarious get a moment like this late in the game. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in that Nefarious is insulting Qwark even as the latter is apologizing... and throughout his own apology. [[spoiler: Possibly played straight by the very end, when Nefarious is thoughtfully looking at a photo of the group.]]

** Then there's Dr. Croid. Oh boy. [[spoiler: Turns out that he's not entirely sane, and fancies himself a Lombax Whisperer. [[EpicFail This ends as well as one might expect]]. He translates Ratchet's request for help as "He's hungry".]]

However, look on the back of the cover jacket of your game, and you will find an alternate cover with that very title, scribbled awkwardly by [[TerribleArtist Qwark]] himself.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: For those already used to the controls from the Future trilogy, this game may be a pain to re-adjust to, such as the Triangle button being used for the swingshot instead of selecting a weapon, as that's assigned to the Right Stick instead, and the game won't pause when you select a weapon (unless you're playing in Single-Player mode).
