This is a list of ratchet and clank’s foes and their stats from the guide book.

TESLADRONE:

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kerwan
INFO:  These pesky robotic guards charge towards their targets in an attempt to 
shock them with their electrified arms. More irritating than deadly, 
Tesladrones pose a minor threat when found in numbers. Because of their weak 
armor, use a few quick swings from ratchet’s omniwrench to dispose of them.

DROPHYD SENTRY:

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:   moderate
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kerwan
INFO:  The bead and butter of the Emperor Tachyon’s attack force, sentries are 
lacking in the brain category. With more durable armor than the tesladrones, 
attacks against these enemies using the omniwrench are not recommended. 
However, the combuster is a good choice for long range fire, and a fusion 
grenade or two can wipe out a small group of these sentries before the knew 
what hit them.

DROPHYD TROOPER:

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kerwan
INFO:  More advanced than the drophyd sentry, these enemies come equipped with 
an arm cannon that can fire from long range. While they didn’t exactly graduate 
at the top of the sharpshooter class, when multiple foes are group together, 
they become a moderate threat. Use the strafe maneuver and side flips to avoid 
their projectiles while nailing them with the combuster from afar. Take note 
that more advanced trooper sport heavier armor, jetpacks that allow them to fly 
and hover, more powerful ammunition, and some even have the ability to enter 
stealth mode.

DROPHYD:

STRENGTH:  zero
DEFENSE:  laughable
RANGE:  none
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kerwan
INFO:  It’s hard to imagine the galaxy being overrun by a bunch of creatures 
oddly resembling a goldfish. Yet, after destroying a trooper, ratchet will find 
their mechanical bodies are really just life support systems for the drophyd 
contained inside. Without their bio-suit for protection, these amphibians are 
utterly defenseless and can be destroyed by the sheer  destructive force of 
ratchet’s foot.

TACHYON TRANSORT SHIP:

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kerwan
INFO:  Tachyon’s massive transport ships hover down into the front lines and 
deploy troopers onto the battlefield. While they pose no threat early on in the 
adventure, they are combat-ready and soon use no discretion when firing if 
ratchet gets within range. It’s possible to take one of these flying transport 
down, but you will need some major firepower to do so (a.k.a. the RYNO 4 EVER).

TACHYON GUNSHIP

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  moderate
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kerwan
INFO:  Tachyon  gunships attack with two searing-hot laser cannon that cut 
through the ground, or lofty bombs that exploded with a wide blast radius. 
Watch where they are aiming , then strafe or jump to the side before their 
projectiles can connect. Long-range weapons are highly recommended for use 
against these fling hostiles, as getting too close can result in death, 
maiming, and dismemberment-not necessarily in that order.

CERULLEAN SWARMER

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Cobalia
INFO:  Swarmers are more than happy to turn ratchet into a tasty pre-dinnertime 
snack. Using  only their razor-sharp teeth to attack, these enemies charge in 
for the kill. Although they are easily dispatched with most weapons , beware of 
these nasty critters when they appear in larger groups. If ratchet gets 
surrounded, perform a hyper strike to knock them back and clear them away.

CERULLEAN CENTIPEDE

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Cobalia
INFO:  These multi-legged insectisoids belch up nasty stomach acids that they 
hurl at their targets with surprising accuracy. Sporting hard outer shell, it 
takes repeated firepower to dispatch them. Strafe to avoid their projectile 
vomiting and blast them from a distance.

BASILISK LEVIATHAN

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE :  strong
RANGE:  moderate
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Cobalia
INFO:  These flying territorial behemoths put up a tough fight. They have a 
spitting attack that they can launch from a moderate distance, as well as an 
electrical, full body charge and a shock bubble drop that dispenses several 
bouncing balls of crackling energy that can zap ratchet on contact. Keep these 
foes in sight at all times, avoid their attack at all costs, and send a stream 
of continuous fire.

TUMFOIDS

STRENGTH:  zero
DEFENSE:   invulnerable (to ammo)
RANGE:  close 
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Cobalia
INFO:  Located were gelatonium is abundant, these small creatures get crazed at 
the mere sight of the substance. While they’re not aggressive towards ratchet 
in any way, there are some was to deal with them. Toss a decoy cube, launch a 
groovitron, in case them in gel, or whack them into the nearest gel pool.

DROPHYD CYCLOCANNON

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kortog
INFO:  The ambitious amphibians of tachyon’s army, these drophyds are rewarded 
with a deadly cannon on wheels. Although lacking mobility, the shoot a powerful 
and steady stream of firepower from their front cannon, sweeping from one side 
of the battlefield to the other.

DROPHYD DEFENDER


STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Kortog
INFO:  The only difference between these foes and the ones found earlier in 
Ratchet's adventure is that these versions come equipped with a strong shield 
that is capable of reflecting

BOMBER NANOPHYTES

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  moderate
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Fastoon
INFO:  Much more deadly than their brethren, these Nanophytes toss powerful, 
noxious grenades that can cause major damage if they make contact. Uncaring 
toward their own kind, they often stand in the back and relentlessly toss 
grenades toward Ratchet, even if it means taking out a few of their own on the 
front line

CLUBBER NANOPHYTES

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Fastoon
INFO:  Clubber nanophytes aren't the most threatening enemies by themselves, 
but when several of them get together, their speed, sharp teeth, and 
persistence can pose a moderate threat. When surrounded, use the Shock Ravager 
to provide some breathing room.

HUG-ME-TIGHT NANNY BOT

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  These hovering robots have no qualms about smashing Ratchet between 
their oversized electrical hands. To avoid a shocking migraine, shoot down 
these enemies from a distance before they get a chance to reach Ratchet. And 
whatever you do, don't use the Omniwrench on them, as it simply serves as a 
conduit that sends their electrical waves coursing through the wrench and into 
Ratchet!

PALADRONES

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  These squiggly-armed gladiators shoot at Ratchet from afar during the 
arena challenges. While their projectiles and rate of fire are fairly slow, 
they can be a nuisance and threat in large groups. When hit by the Omniwrench, 
they become stunned for a brief moment, thus creating the perfect opportunity 
to finish them off with either more melee power or a blast to the face with a 
close-range weapon.

TERRAKLONS

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  These gladiators are as deadly in the battle arena as they are skillful 
in the kitchen. Each arm is outfitted with a sharp blade and, while they can 
only attack at close range, they are agile, quick and possess various attack 
patterns. They also tend to fight in large groups, serving to distract Ratchet 
while their long-range cohorts bombard the Lombax from afar. Getting in their 
face with the omniwrench is a viable option, but it's safer to fight from a 
distance and pummel them with explosive weaponry

DETONOIDS

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  Detonoids have just one objective programmed into their system-blowing 
up their targets! These explosive robots make a beeline toward their opponents 
and begin a short countdown once they get close, ending with a deadly 
explosion. With very weak armor, these robotic foes are susceptible to a single 
shot from the Combuster.

ARGONOIDS

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  These gladiators like to keep their distance and lob grenades toward 
Ratchet. White targets appear on the ground where the explosives will hit, so 
move out of the way before they land. With no other form of attack, these 
baddies are actually quite vulnerable at close range. Try long jumping in close 
between volleys and using the Shock Ravager to attack several at one time!

CUSHTO

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  moderate
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  Hailed as one of the Galaxy's most feared gladiators, Crushto is 
equipped with a rocket launcher on one arm and a rapid-fire cannon on the 
other. Strafing is the best way to avoid his rocket fire, and be prepared to 
side flip when he sweeps the arena floor with his cannon. In addition, he will 
occasionally attempt to blow Ratchet off the arena floor, or even suck him into 
his mouth, chewing him up and then spitting him back out. Move in the opposite 
direction of the flow when this occurs and keep up the firepower.

ZORTHAN THE IRRITABLE

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Mukow
INFO:  Crush to isn't the only solo act in the Imperial Fight Fest! This 
phantom gives his competitors a run for their money. His attacks vary from long 
to short range. The most lethal attack consists of laser fire from each eye 
that crosses back and forth, forcing Ratchet to playa deadly game of jump rope. 
Zorthan also throws down electrical charges that multiply and spit out more 
charges, all of which damage anything that touches them. Finally, Zorthan will 
twist and twirl himself into a whirling dervish, knocking the sense out of 
anyone it comes into contact with. Stay mobile and keep up the offensive!

THERMOSPLITTER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Nudac Asteroid Ring
INFO:  These small, speedy Thermosplitters shoot two powerful lasers into the 
ground while chasing down Ratchet. Their attack range is minimal and, like most 
melee combatants, they tend to attack in groups. However, if they surround 
Ratchet, their powerful lasers will make short work of him. The best way to 
deal with these pesky guards is to backpedal while blasting them with a 
powerful weapon that can take out several of them at once, such as the Predator 
Launcher or Fusion Grenade.

FUSION TURRET

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Nudac Asteroid Ring
INFO:  It's a good thing that these turrets can't move, because these elite 
defense systems really pack a punch. Capable of firing from long distances, 
these defensive Fusion Turrets unload a steady stream of firepower. Do not 
attempt to destroy them at close range, as their sturdy armor enables them to 
withstand a large amount of punishment. Use explosives, or even a few Plasma 
Beasts, to quickly dispose of them from afar.

BUCCANEER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Ardolis
INFO:  These grog-guzzling Buccaneers keep it classy with saber in hand, aiming 
to chop up Ratchet into sizeable portions. While they must get in close to 
inflict damage, their massive swords can take a major chunk from Ratchet's 
health meter should they connect. Attack them with steady, long-range firepower 
as soon as they begin to advance to keep them from getting too close.

CORSAIR

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Ardolis
INFO:  These foes have opted for long-range firepower instead of the 
traditional sword. It's entirely possible these goons are too sloshed to fire 
quickly, as they have a slow rate of fire. Avoid their projectiles and return 
the favor with a strong, long-range weapon.

HARDY BUCCANEER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Ardolis
INFO:  Hardy Buccaneers carry large shields that make them more difficult to 
eliminate. A solid crack of the Shock Ravager renders their protective shield 
useless, as will any other explosive weapon in Ratchet's arsenal.

THWOGS

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Ardolis
INFO:  Thwogs are found in large groups, usually inside dank, wet caverns. 
These flying foes attack intruders on sight, swarming them in an attempt to 
feast on their Nanotech. With very little armor, it's quite possible to 
eliminate several of them by tossing a Fusion Grenade or using a short-range 
blast from the Shard Reaper.

SWAB

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Ardolis
INFO:  Never play tag with one of these robotic beasts! Finding joy in the art 
of disguise, Swabs often hide in the shape of a raritanium chest, then pop out 
and head toward their unsuspecting prey. Supercharged with high-voltage 
electricity, do everything in your power to stop these maniacs before they 
reach Ratchet. Due to their extensive armor, you may have to do some back 
flipping to avoid their touch while relentlessly blasting away at them.

ROGUE

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Ardolis
INFO:  Large and in charge! These huge, relentless, ape-like Rogues like jump 
into battle and shoot explosive cannon that roll and bounce around the 
immediate are, exploding on contact. The Rogue also occasionally shoots out a 
time bomb that sticks to the ground and expands a short blast wave on 
detonation. Don’t even think to move in close to avoid the explosives, as these 
beast can slam their massive arms and send out a shockwave that badly injures 
anyone caught within its radius. The best way to deal with a Rogue is to throw 
down Nano-Swarmer Hive to slowly chip away at its health while continuing to 
blast it with a long-range weapon from afar.

GRUNTHOR

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close, moderate and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Sargasso
INFO:  These mammoth creatures are the keepers of Leviathan Souls on Planet 
Sargasso. With powerful attacks, Ratchet must stay light on his feet to avoid 
the possibility of rapid death that this monster is capable of inflicting. To 
make matters worse, Grunthors are very durable. Try laying down a Nano-Swarmer 
Hive and calling on Mr. Zurkon for backup. This, along with any additional long-
range firepower, should make quick work of this beast.

ANTHROPOD

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Sargasso
INFO:  These burrowing Beetles pop out of the ground in groups to attack 
Ratchet when he least expects it. A single whack with the omniwrench can turn 
these critters into fertilizer, although it's possible to become overwhelmed by 
several of them. Keep an eye out for them, especially when fighting a Grunthor, 
as they can serve as a deadly distraction during more difficult fights.

GRUBSNUCKER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  moderate
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Sargasso
INFO:  As fierce as they are unattractive, Grubsnuckers like to hang out in 
small groups and attack in full force when threatened. Don't mistake their 
small size for a lack of power, however, as their attacks can be quite deadly. 
When their bodies start to expand, they are preparing to launch a projectile 
toward Ratchet.

KERCHU ROLLER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Sargasso
INFO:  These guys spell trouble when they get an a roll! They may not seem like 
a threat when they are standing around, but once they caver up with their 
bladed armor and start rolling, they became deadly mobile weapons that are 
nearly invulnerable to non-explosive firepower. The best strategy is to avoid 
their speedy attacks and fire at them when they emerge from their caver. 
Consider these foes as a very dangerous enemy. 

KERCHU PYROGUARD

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Sargasso
INFO:  These mechanized enemies came equipped with twin flamethrowers that can 
rain dawn a hail of fireballs from a long distance, as well as spew a stream of 
molten flame at close range. Heavily armored, these foes can be quite difficult 
to defeat. Stay far away and attack with the most powerful long-range weaponry 
available.

ENFORCER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Viceron
INFO:  These towering mechanized enemies resemble a turret with legs and pose a 
serious threat to any combatant in their line of sight. Sporting two rapid-fire 
cannons, Ratchet must dodge their projectiles if he wishes to survive. Couple 
this with very heavy armor ,you have quite the force to reckon with. Blasting a 
barrage of negotiator rockets their way should do the trick, as weaker weapons 
take some time to effectively destroy these machines. And don’t even think of 
running underneath their body to attack between their legs, they will simply 
smash dawn and crush Ratchet like a tin can

KERCHU MECHWREKER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Jacinou
INFO:  Some Kerchu are forced to live their entire natural lives groveling over 
their small size and stature. The Mechwrecker, on the other hand, decided to 
remedy this curse by riding around in a massively oversized, death-dealing 
mechanical body suit! Its massive arms can smash the ground, sending out a 
large shockwave that damages anything it touches. The Mechwrecker can also fire 
volleys of rockets into the ground that detonate after a brief moment. If 
Ratchet gets below the Mechwrecker, Kerchu Rollers will deploy from its gaping 
maw and attack on sight. Double jump its shockwave attacks, call in backup in 
the form of Nano-Swarmers and Mr. Zurkon, then fire away with a strong weapon 
like the Negotiator.

CRAGPOLE

STRENGTH:  weak
DEFENSE:  weak
RANGE:  close
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Reepor
INFO:  To think that Emperor Tachyon used to be one of these nasty nuisances! 
Young Cragpoles tend to hang out in large groups and swarm toward any nearby 
prey. As unintelligent as they are ugly, they don't pose much of a threat aside 
from being a distraction. While their main mode of attack is to get up close 
and chomp on Ratchet's ankles, they can also belch out short-range projectiles. 
With such weak armor, a few whacks with the Omniwrench or a swipe with the 
Shock Ravager can easily clear out a small group in no time.

CAPTAIN ROMULUS SLAG

STRENGTH:  strong
DEFENSE:  strong
RANGE:  close and long
1st APPEARANCE:  Oblik Passage
INFO:  Captain Slag fears no enemy and his plank feels no remorse! The large 
Cap'n has several deadly attacks in his arsenal, including volleys of two blue 
missiles that loosely lock-on to Ratchet and bounce around the battle arena. 
When these missiles appear, pull out the Combuster and shoot them down. In 
addition, the grog-thirsty Slag can take a swig of the stuff from his mug and 
breathe fire onto the battlefield, leaving small areas on fire. On occasion, he 
will also jump out of attack range and send in some goons to do his bidding. He 
also has the ability to transform his hook into a giant hammer that smashes 
into a painful shockwave throughout the surrounding area.

CRAGMITE WARRIOR

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Reepor
INFO:  The Cragmite Warrior is a fully grown form of the Cragmite species, and 
is known as the deadliest creature to exist within an eight galaxy radius. The 
Cragmite Warriors once terrorized the entire galaxy, extinguishing hundreds of 
species and obliterating entire planets in their headlong rush to conquer the 
galaxy. The species was declared extinct at the end of the Great War, but many 
throughout the galaxy still live with the fear that the Cragmites would somehow 
return.

CRAGMITE HUNTER

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Reepor
INFO:  Something significant must occur during a Cragmite's growing process, 
because these older beasts are much fiercer and combat-ready than their younger 
siblings. With the ability to de-molecularize into thin air then transport a 
short distance away, these Cragmites can be very difficult to eliminate. 
Equipped with long rang weapons, they move into the offensive immediately upon 
reappearing, giving little time to set up an attack. Your best bet is to wait 
for them to teleport, then fire at them the moment they reappear.

EMPEROR PERCIVAL TACHYON

STRENGTH:  moderate
DEFENSE:  moderate
RANGE:  long
1st APPEARANCE:  Planet Reepor
INFO:  The meanest foe of the bunch! The scummiest of the scum! The crabbiest 
of the Cragmites! Emperor Percival Tachyon would like nothing more than to see 
every last Lombax wiped off the face of the Galaxy. The Emperor's highly 
technological exoskeleton is outfitted with a wide range of deadly attacks. 
These attacks include firing a searing laser down at Ratchet, deploying large 
quantities of spider bombs, and jumping up and stomping down on the ground. 
Plus, he hurls comets down at our intrepid heroes and even unloads a large 
number of missiles that detonate a few seconds after sticking into the ground. 
In other words, Tachyon embraces mayhem. It's best to stay mobile, take evasive 
action often, and call on Ratchet's strongest weapons to fell the would-be 
ruler of the galaxy.
