The Battle-Hawk was a flying female DreadZone contestant. It was unsure whether she escaped the station after Gleeman Vox caused it to explode.

Lucy was a big fan of Battle-Hawk, going so far as to dress up like her.

Captain Lightspeed

Captain Lightspeed was a DreadZone contestant who was killed after attempting to enter another hero's living quarters.

Agent Zero

Agent Zero was a DreadZone contestant. Along with Ratchet, Kid Nova and Hydro Girl, Agent Zero is one of the four known contestants to escape the DreadZone Station explosion.[3]

Behind the scenes

Agent Zero from the Spyro series

Agent Zero is presumably an in-joke by Insomniac Games, as a spy called Agent Zero appeared briefly in one of Insomniac Games's earlier games, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. A mission in the game involves you needing to follow closely behind him without him noticing, in order to gain access to his secret club.

Quaternion X

Levithan Flail

The Leviathan Flail, Quaternion X's favorite weapon

Quaternion X was one of DreadZone's greatest contestants, who had been abducted from his home of Metropolis, Kerwan, and forced to fight for Gleeman Vox at around the same time as Captain Starshield. Almost rivaling the latter in dread points, Quaternion X was killed in the Battledome before he could surpass the Captain. His favorite weapon was the Leviathan Flail, which he referred to as "the old ball and chain."

Quasar Flare

Quasar Flare was one of the gladiators on board the DreadZone. He was "terminated" before Ratchet's arrival to the station.

Mobius Man

Alright fresh meat, enough chit chat. Your next up in the Battledome, after "Mobius Man." And from the way he's fighting it won't be much longer. Now move it!
Gleeman Vox, informing Ratchet that he is up next in the Battledome  [Deadlocked]

Mobius Man was a long-running DreadZone contestant, whom was finally eliminated from the show when the Eviscerator cut him down in the Battledome on the same day as Ratchet's first arena challenge. Gleeman Vox stated to Ratchet that the way Mobius Man was fighting, he wouldn't be around much longer. This shows that Mobius Man might have been a clumsy fighter, and the way he got all the way to the Vindicator Tournament might have been through mere luck.

Plasma Ray

Plasma Ray was one of the longest running DreadZone contestants until he was killed by one of the Exterminators.

Mad Monkey McKnight

Mad Monkey McKnight was a popular DreadZone contestant, whom Ace Hardlight killed during the same season that saw the end of Captain Starshield and The Brown Ranger. He was larger than Captain Starshield and the Brown Ranger. He seemed to have a large gun for a right hand; with many tube-like devices around his body, suggesting his weapon was some kind of liquid shooter.

Space Pirate Issue 2

The Buccaneer

This Buccaneer was a Space pirate imprisoned on the Vartax Detention Facility.


The Buccaneer was imprisoned in the Facility for unknown reasons. The pirate later met Clank and recognised him, helping him to escape from his cell.

Clank later returned to free the Pirate and the Pirate started an uprising by leading the other inmates in battle against the Prison Guards, allowing Ratchet, Clank and General Glahm to escape.

It is likely that he was released after Artemis Zogg's defeat.

Dave and Pete were Thug members of the Thugs-4-Less. Both owed another Thug ten bolts each but were separately killed by Ratchet in battle and was never able to pay the Thug which they owed back, who was also killed by Ratchet soon after.
