YMMV: Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters


  • Alternate Continuity: A lot of fans see the game and it's sequel as this, due to the lack of references in the Future trilogy and beyond. Into the Nexus confirms this.
  • Broken Base: Though it did sell well on the PlayStation Portable, and got plenty of positive reviews, fan reaction to the game is mixed.
  • Contested Sequel: Some fans consider Size Matters to be the worst game in the franchise, mainly due to Ratchet returning to his jerkass roots and Otto's plot to extract intelligence, which Clank considers "pure evil", to be quite narmy. Not to mention the amount of glitches in the game, and Luna being a difficult boss.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Some fans pretend this game and it's sequel never happened. Of course, Insomniac themselves never mention the canon status of the games, no matter how many times people ask.
    • Into The Nexus confirms that Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank are non-canon.
  • Good Bad Bugs: The Fire-Bomb Armor allows the player to shoot a fireball out of their wrench on the third swing of a combo. If the player kills enough enemies with it, the Scorcher will upgrade. If the player hasn't bought the Scorcher yet, they can now get it for free! note 
  • Moral Event Horizon: Luna may have been a jerkass when we found out what it really is, but it crosses the line for good when it tries to KILL the heroes with farming equipment.
    • And Otto is soon revealed to be over this line when Qwark finds out that the technomites killed his parents.
  • Narm: Clank's line: "That is pure evil". Of course, Otto Destruct's plan to extract intelligence from people using an army of clones isn't as evil as many other villains, especially in the canon games.
  • Sequelitis
  • That One Boss: Luna. It takes a long time to go down and her attacks are tough to avoid. And if you die, you have to go through the running-through-the-field sequence and cutscene again.
  • The Scrappy: Luna
