* ButForMeItWasTuesday: A rare heroic example of the villainous variant. [[spoiler: Courtney Gears]] has a VillainousBreakdown in the middle of their boss fight, when Ratchet kills their favorite [[spoiler: dancer]]. Of course, to the player (and presumably Ratchet as well), said [[spoiler: dancer]] looked completely identical to any of the number of mooks they'd been mowing down for the entire fight.

* WidelySpacedJailBars: There is a containment area on the Starship Phoenix with bars like these. The PlayerCharacter actually can walk between the bars, but the [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] in there never think of escaping this way. To be fair though, the area is used to contain Quark, who is much bigger than Ratchet and can't escape from it, meaning it's also TailorMadePrison.

** [[WhipItGood Plasma/Quantum Whip]]. It is a melee weapon that ''needs ammunition'' and it is very weak even among starting weapons. Needless to say, it won't see much use.

* BareYourMidriff: Courtney Gears.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: An in-game meta example. The Annihilation Nation announcer says that most people know Ratchet as Secret Agent Clank's bumbling chauffeur. Said bumbling chauffeur then goes and blows a ton of crap up in the arena with weapons as big as he is.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: One of the vid-comics shows Qwark stowing away on Nefarious' spaceship by clinging onto it for dear life, and survives the six-day space travel by ''holding his breath the whole trip.'' While it sounds like something Qwark would embellish, the game ''Size Matters'' would retroactively reveal that he could actually do this.
