Later when the Galactic Rangers launch their first attack on the Deplanetizer, Drek sends Victor to destroy them with his best death ship. However, Ratchet manages to take the death ship down. Victor escapes using his jetpack just as the ship explodes, and in anger at his best death ship being destroyed, boards The Phoenix. The warbot then chases Clank once again, while also trying to destroy the Phoenix. However, his final attempt to destroy Clank ends in his own demise, as Clank activates the sprinkler system, giving Victor no where to run from his weakness to water - causing him to malfunction and be destroyed.

Victor Von Ion (re-imagined)

Victor using the Negotiator

Victor Von Ion served as Drek`s bodyguard. He is first seen when he punishes Stanley by forcing him to call his mother, then eating the phone when she answers.

The Defect

Victor accompanies Drek to a factory in Skorg City on Quartu to oversee the creation of Warbots. The factory is struck by lightning and a defect, Clank, is created. Drek and Nefarious order Victor to capture the defect before he alerts the Galactic Rangers of their plans to invade Aleero City.

Clank used the vents to escape and took off in an escape pod. Victor was able to shoot down the pod with a Negotiator, and the pod crashed on Veldin.


Victor later led the warbot invasion on Aleero City. The Warbots outnumbered the Rangers, and were about to finish them when Ratchet and Clank arrived in Mr. Micron's ship and used a mag-booster to pick up the Warbots and fired them at the Mothership, destroying it. Victor was able to escape in an air taxi.

The defect found a Thundersmack and used it to create a massive storm cloud. Victor, despite his weakness, still attacked Clank but was rusted up by the water.

Character Details

Powers, abilities, and weapons

Victor's favored weapons were his Negotiator rocket launcher, a wrist energy beam, and a built in pair of Razor Claws, although their color and size more closely resembled the Razor Talons. He was also a proficient pilot with his death ship. However, he had one massive weakness, water was capable of damaging him, and if it went inside him it would short circuit and destroy him.

He is also quite fast as he was able to escape from an exploding space ship to the star ship phoenix in mere seconds.

In the Ratchet & Clank movie, he is voiced by Academy Award-nominated actor Sylvester Stallone. In the game, he is voiced by Mark Silverman. His original counterpart, the Robot Lieutenant, was voiced by Neil Flynn.
