The Mangeboots are a gadget in Ratchet & Clank invented by the blarg. They allow Ratchet to traverse specific magnetic surfaces, such as ventilation shafts and undersides of spacecraft, though they grant him limited movement while doing so.

Clank finds a pair while exploring the surface of Orxon, where the boots are among many things left behind, and brings them back to Ratchet. The Magneboots did not reappear, though Ratchet instead made use of the Gravity Boots, with similar functionality while granting Ratchet full movement on surfaces.

Lombax Magnetic

The Lombax Magentic trophy

Obtaining the Magneboots in high-definition re-release (standalone and in the Ratchet & Clank Collection) grants the player the Lombax Magnetic bronze trophy.


The Magneboots are required for Ratchet to explore many areas of the worlds visited, as well as to gain access from secrets. As all of the weapons and gadgets Ratchet uses are made from magnetic metal, only the OmniWrench can be used while using the Magneboots. Additionally, it is not possible to jump (using X will just cause Ratchet to attempt to and fail to jump), and movement is slow and restrictive, being half the speed of usual movement.
