Clank is one of the titular protagonist game characters in the Ratchet & Clank video game series by Insomniac Games.

After a high-speed chase, he crashes near a plateau on planet Veldin and catalyzes Ratchet’s adventure. Clank has many attachments including a helipack, thrusterpack, and hydropack. Under certain circumstances, he can grow into a giant form to fight much larger enemies. He is mostly used as a character for tight spaces or areas in outer space without air.
