** [[spoiler: Not really. After the end of Crack in Time, a news broadcast mentions that Angela Cross is, in fact, a Lombax... and was last seen with Max Apogee. Sequel hook?]]

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Everyone Ratchet talks to in ''Tools Of Destruction'' considers the Cragmites to be this and consider the Lombaxes as "saviors of the Universe" due to having [[spoiler:apparently]] completely exterminated the Cragmites. It could be argued that Tachyon, who is trying to bring them back, is really LawfulEvil though, after all, he is an ''emperor''. Even with Tachyon gone, [[spoiler:the Cragmites are still around and can still potentially become a threat again, but they won't cause trouble anytime soon.]]

* ItMayHelpYouOnYourQuest: The Plumber gives Ratchet and Clank a 3 3/4 Centicubit Hexagonal Washer in his singular appearance. [[spoiler:They use it to fix the Dimensionator and escape from a collapsing alternate dimension at the end of the game]].



* KickTheDog: In ''Tools Of Destruction'', after Emperor Tachyon reveals that the Lombaxes fled their own dimension to escape his wrath, with the hope he would spare Fastoon if they did so, he continues with this; "Only two stayed behind... The keeper of the Dimensionator... and his infant son. " *waits a moment to let to the realization sink in for Ratchet* "I took great pleasure in destroying ''your father'', Lombax- pity he sent you to Solana before we could meet."
* 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]].

* 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.
