Courtney and Backup Dancers

Backup dancers[1] were dancers who worked with Courtney Gears in her music videos. They also helped Courtney to fight Ratchet and Clank in the Courtney Gears boss fight. Backup dancers fought by spinning around and trying to hit Ratchet. Appearance-wise, they were very similar to Courtney. The only difference were their main color, purple, and their hairstyle, which were pigtails.
