The Thugs-4-Less Brutes were strong lizard-like brutes who worked for Thugs-4-Less. They possessed the traits of being big, strong, and stupid - which was everything a young thug aspired to be.
They either shot Ratchet with green missiles or released MegaCorp Chickenbots to do their dirty work. In close combat, they tried to kick Ratchet with their powerful, but short legs, which could knock him far away. They appeared to be pilots on Snivelak; however, they could only be seen after Ratchet destroyed a vehicle. They are also described as not being very bright.

These enemies preferred to attack with some sort of plasma gun that they had somehow managed to obtain in prison, which didn't fire missiles or Chicken Bots unlike previously. In addition to their gun, they also threw handmade molotov cocktails at Ratchet.
Big, strong, and incredibly stupid, the Thugs-4-Less Brute is everything that a young thug aspires to be. They attack by firing a burst of shots or by deploying MegaCorp Chickenbots to do their dirty work for them.
