1. I ended up with the hero as Nefarious with Ratchet as his sidekick. QWARK was the love interest with Cronk and Zephyr as comic relief. The villain was Rusty Pete who also had Qwark as a minion… Poor Nefarious.

    • Rusty Pete: Once upon a time, there was a fearless young Lombax who gained fame and fortune by ridding the galaxy of Emperor Percival Tachyon and Captain Romulus Slag.
    • Slag: 'Twas a cheap shot, I tell ye! Someone unplugged me controller!
  2. "My gripe is not with the people of this archaic planet, but with you! Surrender your… deathbot, and simply allow us to kill you. No one else need be harmed."
    Emperor Tachyon, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
  3. "The Lombax will die
    A fiery, awful death.
    Cupcakes are yummy."
    Emperor Tachyon, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
  4. "Oh, some old pilot I met way out in the Vorox Nebula years ago. The Emperor had shot his ship down after attacking Fastoon, and… Hey! Come to think of it, you look a bit like him! Oh, it’s a small universe, ain’t it?"
    The Smuggler (when asked where he obtained the Gyro cycle), Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
  5. Ratchet's purpose is to save the galaxy whenever it gets into trouble.

    • Ratchet: Do you think he was telling the truth, Clank? About my father? About my purpose?
    • Clank: I detected no lie in his voice, but I believe your purpose has already been filled. You vanquished Tachyon, something even the Lombaxes could not do.
    • Ratchet: Thanks, Clank.
