Zanifar was a planet in the Breegus System of the Polaris Galaxy. Its weather varied from sunny to snowy as shown when Ratchet traveled through time.[1] It was inhabited by the fongoids, who were concentrated in the Tombli Outpost. The planet had many oil derricks, and had once been a vegetated area. Nefarious continued his Fongoid kidnapping on the planet as well, he also created the Tombli Barrier to stop ships from reaching the planet.

In Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, Zanifar was the planet on which Nefarious' asteroid crash-landed, after the final boss fight.


Zanifar had a temperate climate with cold, snowy winters and warm summers with evening thunderstorms.[2]

  • Vine Seeds were known to grow in the area.
  • It was called Tobolia, but was renamed Zanifar. [citation needed]
  • The present takes place during winter, while the past takes place during summer. This was most likely done to emphasize the change that the area had undergone.
  • It is possible that the "Zanifarian Death Weasel" mentioned in Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction originated from this planet. [citation needed]
  • The original name for the Tomboli Outpost was The Klunk Memorial Day Spa and Resort. However, after several legal battles with Klunk's lawyers, the name was changed.
  • Zanifar was a popular Spring Break location.
