The Brain Scientist is a character in Ratchet & Clank (2016 game). He was one of Chairman Drek's blarg scientists on planet Gaspar, who collected brains telepathopus brains as a hobby to pursue his passion of amateur neuroscience, and to get revenge on his co-workers. He is a blarg who wears a white lab jacket, a shirt with an image of a brain, a red telescope helmet, and a backpack containing two green canisters containing a green liquid.
When Ratchet and Clank arrived on Gaspar, the Brain Scientist offered the XK-81 Jetpack in exchange for ten telepathopus brains, and an infobot for Batalia in exchange for twenty more brains. After this, Ratchet and Clank collected up to 90 telepathopus brains, for which he offered a reward in bolts for each brain, and once all were collected, he provided the Buzz Blades.
