- ―Comic Narrator on Booty is in the Eye of the Beholder. [UYA]
Booty is in the Eye of the Beholder was the first Qwark vid-comic. Big Al gave it to Ratchet and Clank at the Laser Defence Facility on planet Marcadia. It took place on a space pirate ship during the beginning of Qwark's career, where he faced Captain Blackstar and his Robotic Space Eel.
During the early parts of the "Fifth Solarian Equinox", the Solana Galaxy was terrorised by the notorious Captain Blackstar and his crew of Robotic Pirate Ghosts. Although he was entering his adulthood, Qwark already was a living legend, yet no adventure beforehand would prepare him for the assault on Blackstar's ship. He fights his way through the ship, eventually defeating Captain Blackstar and his giant robotic space eel.
Afterwards, he "reluctantly" accepted an extravagant sum of bolts via check and then donated it all for the Qwark for Tots Scholarship Fund, which provided Qwark with luxury. Later on, Qwark gets a call from the Galactic President regarding a fruit basket the former received as a gift (which Qwark dumps, claiming he is allergic to prunes), then answers the call to action when the President tells him Blackwater City is under attack.
Health upgrade location
The location of the health upgrade is just before the final boss. The way to get this health upgrade is to walk the normal pathway of the vid-comic and before the door opens for the final boss you will see it, go up to it and you will get increased health.
Behind the scenes
The name of the vid-comic is a reference to the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
