Rangers

    Cora Veralux 
Cora was born and raised on Novalis, she dreamed of becoming a Galactic Ranger and spent her entire life trying to achieve that goal, becoming the youngest to be accepted into the team.
  • The Ace: She's portrayed as hyper-competent in just about all areas; the worst you can really say about her is that she's a little rough around the edges sometimes, and even that eventually falls away. So why is Qwark still the leader? Rule of Funny, most likely.
    • She designed and built the Flux Rifle while doing her math homework and eating breakfirst at the same time in the holocard description.
  • Action Girl
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Though initially standoffish, she eventually warms up to Ratchet and Clank. This is in contrast to Qwark, despite their similar status: she worked her tail offnote  to get into the Galactic Rangers at a young age, while Ratchet just sort of blundered in. But while Qwark becomes jealous of Ratchet's new-found popularity, she comes to respect him, probably because fame is less important to her than actually getting the job done.
  • Determinator: She wanted to be the youngest member of the Galactic Rangers, and got in through sheer grit.
  • Flat Character: Due to the movie's Compressed Adaptation, her characterization largely boils down to "I'm gonna shoot it and maybe make a snarky comment."
  • Ineffectual Death Threats: She threatens to shoot just about anyone who annoys her (Ratchet, Zed, etc.). The number of people she actually ends up shooting is quite a bit lower.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Something bugging you? Shoot it. Problem solved.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Some fans have compared her to Talwyn from the Future games, though it's unclear whether Talwyn also exists in this reimagining.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Elaris's girly-girl.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: While she's impulsive, striving to get into one of the top military groups of the galaxy all her life has given her a bit of maturity beyond what you might expect of a teenager.

    Brax Lectrus 
The muscle of the Galactic Rangers. Like Cora, he likes to shoot first and ask questions later, preferably with big guns.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He enjoys fighting and telling tales about fights.
  • Competition Freak: A lighter example.
  • Dumb Muscle: His general purpose. Of course, with Qwark on the team, his status as "Team Dummy" is highly debatable.
  • Flat Character: Like Cora, his movie self suffers from the Compressed Adaptation rendering him largely a trigger-happy brute.
  • The Big Guy: He's listed as the Rangers' muscle and is physically larger than most of the rest of them (only Qwark is of a similar size).

    Elaris 
Elaris is Qwark's second-in command of the Galactic Rangers. She provides support via com station.
  • Closet Sublet: Her com station appears to double as the janitor's closet, with mops and brooms standing in the corner.
  • Gamer Girl: She's introduced while playing what appears to be Up Your Arsenal online and shouting into her headset at the kid on the other end.
  • Mission Control: She helps with support from the relative safety of the Rangers' ship.
  • Motor Mouth: On occasion, sometimes almost slipping into Talkative Loon territory.
  • Only Sane Man: Despite her quirks, she's also the only one of the team who wants to use strategy instead of running into everything guns blazing.
  • Reluctant Psycho: Of a very mild sort. She's aware that her position as support drove her predecessor crazy and promises that she won't end up the same way, though she does show hints that her sanity is a fragile thing.
  • The Strategist: Not that anyone (besides Clank) ever listens to her strategies.
  • That Came Out Wrong: She's keenly aware of when something she says sounds a little crazy, even when no one else has noticed.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly-girl to Cora's tomboy.

Villains

Chairman Alonzo Drek can be found in Ratchet And Clank Villains.

    Zed 
Drek's assistant.
  • Dirty Coward: He's an assistant, not a fighter. When push comes to shove he'll fold easily.
  • Flight: He hovers around quite a few feet of the ground.
  • Forgot About His Powers: When Cora threatens to drop him, he squeals about Drek's plans. The thing is he can hover so falling shouldn't be that bad.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He eventually switches sides after his capture.
  • Robot Buddy: More like "personal assistant". He's Drek's assistant, secretary, and lackey.

    Victor Von Ion 
Drek's muscle and leader of his warbots. Played by Sylvester Stallone in the movie.
  • Co-Dragons: With Dr. Nefarious, though Victor serves as The Brute. He's Drek's go to guy for destructive operations, general ass kickery and cellphone eating.
  • Kill It with Water: In both the game and the movie, we're informed that Victor has an aversion to water; in the game, it happens on Quartu when he busts open a water pipe while chasing Clank and gets held up rather than dashing through it, and in the film, he busts open another water pipe on the Phoenix and nervously backs away. This is eventually what Clank does to kill him, also in both the movie and the game; in the game, Clank activates the fire suppressant system on the ship, which is a bunch of ceiling sprinklers, while he uses the All 4 One Thundersmack (not the thrown pod one from Full Frontal Assault) in the film.
  • My Greatest Failure: Clank getting away at the beginning was his first and only one and it reeeally bothers him. Rightly so as they probably would have won if Clank had been stopped their in the factory.
  • No Water Proofing In The Future: Actually an aversion: most robots, including Clank, are waterproof; Victor has just been damaged in combat enough times to expose his wiring.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Unlike just about every other robot in the galaxy, he isn't waterproof.

Others

    Grimroth Razz 
An aging mechanic who mostly raised Ratchet after an incident in which the young Lombax stole his Rocket Sled and took it for a joyride.
  • Always Identical Twins: He has a twin brother named Felton who looks identical to him, right down to the broken tusk.
  • Canon Foreigner: He is a new character created for the movie and it's tie-in game—Ratchet lived completely alone in the original game.
  • The Cynic: He believes Ratchet's idealism will get him in trouble and encourages him to dream smaller; it's harder to be disappointed that way.
  • Gentle Giant: He's a big guy, particularly in comparison to the main characters, and has a rather gruff appearance, but is actually quite nice.
  • Mr. Fixit: Like Ratchet, he's mechanically inclined. Unlike Ratchet, he's less inclined to make modifications purely for the fun of it.
