Dark Gadgebots were large, black versions of the Gadgetron Gadge-bots. They were summoned by Drek above the Deplanetizer at the Kyzil Plateau on planet Veldin. They ran toward Ratchet and would bite him if the opportunity arose. However, the Dark Gadgebots would be instantly vaporized if hit by Drek's Ultra-Mech fire ring attack. Despite their relatively large size, they can be sucked up with the Suck Cannon or Gold Suck Cannon.
