Easter eggs are secret things put in the game by the developers. Some Easter eggs were not meant to be found and some were easily found. In the Future series, "teddy bears" appeared as Easter eggs.

Easter eggs in the Ratchet & Clank series

Ratchet & Clank

  • During the Infobot commercial for Al's Roboshack, when Qwark says "knee-high to a sand mouse", you can see a "wanted" poster showing Ratchet and Clank on the left side of the screen, behind Al's desk. However, this might not actually be an easter egg as in the demo of the game there are wanted posters all over Metropolis and it's possible Insomniac forgot to take the poster out the cinematic.
  • If you look at Blarg Space Station's lights you will see an Insomniac logo.
  • In the Blarg Station, you can see Dan's face on the monitors of the computers located in front of your ship near the window and other places throughout the station.
  • Dan was seen on Pokitaru, where all starfish scattered on the beach showed his image.
  • Dan's face could also be seen on the blue mushrooms in Eudora if you entered look-mode.
  • When entering the hoverboard challenge, if the player repeatedly does flips around the spokesperson, her breasts will slightly grow.
  • The planet in our solar system Neptune can be seen from many planets/stations where space is visible.

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

  • The Insomniac Museum could be accessed on planet Boldan. Find the fountain and enter the teleporter. The teleporter is only active from 3:00 AM to 4:00 AM. You can also set your PS2's internal clock to 5 minutes before 3:00 AM to get there without having to worry.
  • On planet Damosel and in Clank's Apartment one could find posters of Jak and Daxter.
  • A picture of Dan was to be found on the cereal boxes, located in the super market area on planet Damosel.
  • When one was watching the start menu background animation, one could see Ratchet sitting on a couch playing video games, while Clank sat next to him, reading a book. Every fourth game Ratchet plays was not a Ratchet & Clank title, but instead being either of the Jak and Daxter- or Sly Cooper series.
  • If one zapped the Game Pyramid in Clank's apartment with the Dynamo, one could play Sheep Invaders. Alternatively, it could be smashed for 1024 bolts.
  • On planet Todano, repeatedly killing the Robot Tourists, as they emerge from the tour shuttle, results in a series of increasingly serious HelpDesk messages urging you to stop.
  • When getting to the Hypnomatic part in Allgon City on planet Damosel, Clank did a short dance, just like Daxter of the Jak and Daxter series is known for doing, with the same music playing also.
  • In the Insomniac Museum, Dan was found as a floating face shot outside, on the opposite side of the Grav-Ramp tower.
  • Dan's name was featured in binary code on one of the signs at Notak.
  • On planet Siberius, there is a snowman behind one of the rooms with enemies which has Dan's face on it. Destroying it gives a skill point.
  • The floating screens found around Maktar Resort have a hidden image of Jak and Daxter that can only be seen by breaking them and looking at the debris. The image is hidden on the third side of the triangular prisms used to switch between the Megacorp and Thugs-4-Less logos.

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

  • The Insomniac Museum is featured in this game. In there, you can fight enemies cut from the game, play Qwark Vid-comics that did not make it, and more. One way to get there is to win the six floor trophies in the Phoenix's trophy room. The other way to get in the Insomniac Museum is that there is a transport pad that goes straight to the museum in Metropolis, but it's only active from 3 AM to 4 AM. To do this, you can either wait until that time or set the PlayStation 2 internal clock to that time, to do this have your PlayStation 2 turned off and either have no game in the disc slot or have the disc slot open, turn on your PlayStation 2 and it should bring you to a screen where it says 'System Configuration'. Go into System Configuration and set the time to 2:59 A.M. Insert Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, turn on the game and load it then travel to planet Metropolis. Once you get out your ship, continue as if you were going to play but instead go into the first room, turn to the left, break the window and go into the next room. Turn to the left again and break the other window. You should see a transporter that normally says, "Teleporter out order. Come back another time." Instead it will now say "Triangle Insomniac Museum."
  • After finishing the fourth vid-comic, Al says "Aren't you going to unlock Qwark's secret costumes?" then he says: "up up down down left right circle square square." He then laughs, points, and says, "He's in a tutu!." If you do this pattern while playing a vid-comic, Qwark will show up dressed in a tutu.
    • If you do this in the Unnamed Vid- Comic, he will be a silhouette of himself.
    • If you die as 'Tutu Qwark,' in any stage, and repeat the code, his lighting will be darker. It is likely a glitch.
  • When fighting with Dr.Nefarious at Mylon, All the pieces of debris look like it came from a giant burnt up Clank/Klunk.
  • At the main menu, if you press L1, L2, R1 and R2 together you will get to play a Sly 2: Band of the Thieves demo although this is only in the PS2 version and is not in the HD collection.
  • If one pauses the game and presses circle, square, cirlcle, square, up, down, left, left in that order, it will replace your wrench with a "ninja sword." To disable this go to the cheats menu then disable wrench replacement, or enter the code again. Until you enter the code this will be labelled as 'DEMO CODE' in the Cheats menu.
  • At Holostar Studios in the second room that is raining (not the graveyard) there is a circular button to your right that will change it from raining to snowing.
  • At the PDA vendor in Qwark's Hideout you can see a Crotchitizer and a Personal Hydgenator.

Ratchet: Deadlocked

  • When you are driving any vehicle including the Hovership, tap the L3 (left analog stick) button to sound a horn.
  • If you morph a flying enemy, there is a 1 in 4 chance that it will become a pig with wings.
  • On Catacrom Four, there is a flying vehicle that shows whatever is on your screen. Best noticed when in the landstalker.
  • In the DreadZone Station, there is a screen in Al's room that also shows what is on your screen. However, the screen on the screen is blank (when looking at the screen).
  • When fighting Gleeman Vox, he has cameras and tvs and you can see yourself jumping, running, and attacking him in part 2 of the battle.
  • In Multiplayer mode there is a Jak skin available for player 2.
  • Agent Zero from Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! appears on the scoreboard.

Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters

  • The High Impact Games Treehouse is a secret level in Ratchet & Clank Size Matters. The planet looks a little bit like Pokitaru and there are only two ways to get there. The first way is to go to planet Metalis between 2:42 AM and 2:47 AM and a teleporter will appear at the Titanium bolt place. The other way is to get all skill points. There is a weapon in the Treehouse that was cut in the game. It's called the CUT.
  • Dan was seen on one of the computers at the Treehouse (the one with concept art of Luna on it) at the end, where his face appeared as a cartoon.
  • Also in the HIG Treehouse on one of the desks, if you enter look-mode or first-person mode, you can see a framed picture of Courtney Gears in a heart and xoxo and CG.
  • In the Treehouse on a desk similar to the easter egg above there is a picture and if you enter First-person mode, it's a picture of the whole High Impact Games crew.

Secret Agent Clank

  • The Treehouse is a secret level in Secret Agent Clank; the way to get there is to find all the Alien Codes. There are bosses, Qwark's opera ending, a cheat code to Tools of Destruction, and many other things cut from the final game.
  • If you find the message that says 'Play a game of 'Robot Finds Kitten on a desk, near it should be a picture of a woman. If you press O, O, ∆, O, and then X, you will view a memorial for an Insomniac Games designer's mother.

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

  • Using the Razor Claw, bug-climb to get on top of IRIS, then walk up a little and turn around. You will see a little teddy bear sitting on IRIS.

  • Before Ratchet and Talwyn are shot out the cannon by Sprocket, the Insomniac Games'ss moon is seen in the background.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

  • During space exploration, there is a depot in every sector with Vullards working at it. At almost every depot there is a teddy bear somewhere there.
  • There is also a teddy bear at the Agorian Battleplex. Before you teleport into the arena, there are two glass walls with Agorians behind it. If you look through the glass at the floor, there is another teddy bear.
  • In the Agorian Battleplex, just before you enter the arena behind the right pane of glass, there is a Terachnoid quivering among the Agorians.
  • Dan could be seen in the Insomniac Museum outside staring into space.

He is also wearing a Q-Force T-shirt.
