* HarsherInHindsight: At the beginning of the game, Ratchet jokes with Sasha, who is now the Mayor of Metropolis, over if the city is still in once piece. The beginning of [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction the very next (canon) game]] shows Metropolis being attacked by a genocidal Emperor who's looking for Ratchet for ''what'' he is. No doubt Sasha would take these jokes with good humor again.

* MoralEventHorizon: Ace Hardlight had certainly crossed it a long time before the events of ''Deadlocked'', but him not only murdering Captain Starshield on-screen, and almost [[spoiler: killing Al]], all with [[BloodKnight sadistic glee]], makes it clear he's a irredeemable villain.

** On an opposite note, Deadlocked brought in its own group of fans that prefer it over the other, more light-hearted titles.

* VindicatedByHistory: When first released, ''Deadlocked'' got a lot of flack for being so different to the previous three games with having a more combat-action playstyle. Today, it is seen as one of the best games of the franchise for its unique gameplay, having quite an entertaining story, and for giving Ratchet plenty of CharacterDevelopment. A few elements of the game (such as weapon modifying and the styles of several arena challenges) returned in ''A Crack in Time'', to the joy of many fans.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: In spite of their CompleteMonster and HateSink status respectively, Gleeman Vox and Ace Hardlight are among the most popular villains of the franchise. Vox is well-liked for his LargeHam advertisement at the beginning of the game ("It's time to blow $#@% up!"), and Ace has a devoted fanbase on [=DeviantArt=].

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Dallas and Juanita; though their commentary is funny at times it really gets kind of annoying when they always try to put Ratchet down during the fights. Dallas sometimes gets impressed with Ratchet's skill but Juanita rarely compliments the lombax.

Dallas sometimes gets impressed with Ratchet's skill but Juanita rarely compliments the lombax. [[spoiler:Of course, their last few appearances show that they're just as much as hostages as Ratchet, and were forced to slander him at the threat of death. In the final mission, when Vox finally snaps and puts them both in Deadlocked collars, the two support Ratchet]].

* TheWoobie:
** Green had a terrible past prior to the events of the game. He was forced to fight in a war, and watched many of his friends die. He lost both of his legs in battle, and was sent to a repair bot, whom he fell in love with, but they were not allowed to date. [[spoiler:They were caught, and she was turned into a park bench]].
** Even Dallas becomes one towards the end. [[spoiler:He and everyone else in [=DreadZone=] were taken hostage by Vox to be used as a raitings stunt when Ratchet tries to free them, which if he fails, will result in the entire station being blown up, and no one would survive because of their Deadlocked collars. Dallas is completely ''terrified'', citing that he has his whole life ahead of him, and still has a lot of goals for his future.]]

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Ace Hardlight is '''not''' a good person, but was he really the [[SellOut willingly]] [[BloodKnight bloodthirsty]] [[TheDragon dragon to Vox]] who had a sudden HeelFaceTurn after Ratchet beat him to a pulp, or was he just as much a victim of Vox as Ratchet who had long crossed the DespairEventHorizon and [[ThenLetMeBeEvil convinced himself that he had no future outside of Dreadzone, and decided to just embrace its dog eat dog nature until his time was up?]]
