* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Tachyon's hold over Polaris has a very fascist-like feeling. However, while the [[spoiler:lombax genocide]] and the subsequent conquering of other planets is very much like how Nazi Germany tried to conquer Europe in World War II, by the time of the game, the planets under Tachyon's control have strict rules with death penalties quite common, and a cult of personality around Tachyon himself, similar to modern-day North Korea.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: The game ends with Tachyon banished and the Cragmites defeated for good, freeing the galaxy from their tyranny, but may potentially terrorize the galaxy again. But then [[{{SuddenDownerEnding}} Clank is taken by the Zoni]] and is soon revealed to be in a coma, while under the care of Dr. Nefarious. HappilyEverAfter for Polaris, DownerEnding for Ratchet and his allies]].

* FantasticRacism: Tachyon's hatred towards the [[{{AlwaysLawfulGood}} Lombaxes]], [[spoiler: [[{{SelfMadeOrphan}} despite being raised by them]]]], is so huge, that you can often hear [[{{PropagandaMachine}} anti-Lombax propaganda]] throughout the game.

* ThePurge: [[spoiler:TheReveal in the climax is that the lombaxes were subjected to genocide by Tachyon, and that the survivors used the Dimensionator to flee the universe, thinking if they're gone, Tachyon wouldn't be of a threat to the rest of the universe. [[OmnicidalManiac They were wrong]].]]

* PivotalBoss: Crushto sits in the middle of the arena and tries to shoot you, as well as [[BlowYouAway use his breath to push you off of the platform]].



* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: Emperor Tachyon has finally gotten ahold of the Dimensionator, a device that will allow him to free the cragmites, the imprisoned race of which he's a member. He says, "The time has come for the cragmites to rise again!" puncuating the last word by pulling the lawnmower-like ripcord on the device. Nothing happens.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: The description for the RYNO-4-EVER acknowledges that it's in a video game, since it says that the weapon is "far too dangerous, illegal and downright gameplay destabilizing to ever be used. Ever. We mean it."

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: This excerpt of a quote from Captain Qwark:

* EvilerThanThou: According to Aphelion, the cragmites were this, and Tachyon did not know how evil his race was. Averted however, because once Tachyon released the cragmites from their imprisonment, they accepted him as their emperor.

* LastOfHisKind: In ''Tools Of Destruction'', Ratchet is revealed to be the last of the Lombaxes (though see SeriesContinuityError below) and Tachyon is the last of the Cragmites which, by happenstance were exterminated by the Lombaxes. [[spoiler:All this is revealed to be false by the end of the game. Or at least true for their home universe. Later on, the cragmites are now back in their universe]].

* NinjaPirateRobotZombie: When Ratchet and Clank are being briefed by Captain Qwark on the plan to bust into Zordoom Prison, he claims that they'll have to fight some "Zombie Ninja Panda Bears", although none of them ever appear.



* RecurringRiff: There's at least one that can be tracked through the game-- [[BookEnds in the opening cutscene]] [[IronicEcho all the way through the ending.]] [[note]] It's very obvious right before the credits[[/note]]. If you're listening, you can even hear it in Quest For Booty after being shot to Hoolifar, while Ratchet's still waking up.
