Aranos was an icy planet in Sector Seven, whose surface is covered in seemingly endless mountains. Angela Cross owned a large flying laboratory hovering in the atmosphere of Aranos (likely part of the generous bonus packages she got when working for MegaCorp), which was guarded by MegaCorp's own MSR (MegaCorp Security Robots) versions I and II. When Angela stole MegaCorp's Experiment no. 13 from MegaCorp's testing laboratories, she went to her flying lab and prepared to head to Canal City to buy explosives to destroy the experiment. Ratchet, a newly hired MegaCorp Commando, tracked her there and nearly got the Experiment, but Angela and her MSR cornered him and Angela fled with the experiment. Later, Angela's lab was taken over by Thugs-4-Less, who had previously been working for her. They turned the lab into the new Thugs-4-Less Prison, which was meant to be a high security prison for Thugs-4-Less's opponents (complete with fitness trainers, life coaches and nutritionists to help the prisoners feel comfortable). Ratchet and Clank were imprisoned in the prison for a short time, but managed to escape with the help of Clank's Infobot friend.

Aranos was one of the planets stolen by the Markazian planet-thief, Artemis Zogg, for his own galaxy. The theft of a planet in a galaxy completely different from Polaris signaled that whole universe was under attack.
