Clank's mother is a character in Ratchet & Clank. She is a computer on the blarg robot factory on planet Quartu which produced Clank, who harbored disdain for Chairman Drek's plans for destruction. While she normally produces Sentry-bots to serve as blarg security forces, she instead created Clank through what appeared to be a deliberate malfunction, and also appeared to be able to create infobots containing Drek's plans, releasing infobots twice. She is only capable of communicating through text on her screen.
When Clank was born in the factory, a nearby infobot that revealed to him Chairman Drek's plans to destroy planet Novalis convinced Clank to flee and look for help. When Clank returned to the factory with Ratchet in the mission "Infiltrate the secure area," she briefly spoke with Clank, congratulating his progress thus far, and releasing an infobot revealing Drek's plans to destroy Veldin with the Deplanetizer. This infuriated Ratchet, encouraging him to take revenge on Drek.
Behind the scenes
Clank's mother did not appear in the 2016 re-imagined game or 2016 movie, though Clank does return to the robot factory that produced him on Quartu. Clank is produced when the factory malfunctions after being hit by a lightning bolt, which is implied to be caused by the Zoni's lightning.
