Hug-Me-Tight Nanny Bots were big electric machines with immense arms, built originally built by GrummelNet and later sold to Tachyon's Empire. Qwark revealed they were built by GrummelNet as a children's toy but were recalled due to "packing 10,000 volt punch." They were later sold to the Tachyon's Empire as gladiators or heavy duty security forces for the Imperial Fight Festival on Mukow. Their strength was strong and armor moderate and only attacked at close range. These behemoths attacked by hovering over a target before attempting to crush them with their arms. If being even a meter away from them, their arms could slam into targets and could kill them instantly if on low health.
Behind the scenes
- Before Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction came out, they were mistaken as Crushtos due to their massive crushing hands. 
- Much like Captain Slag, a Swab or Zorthan, they were electrified and touching them resulted in Nanotech loss.
