The Macro Corporeal Geo Fragmention Ion Negator (or the MCGuFIN, for short) was a gadget used to transport objects to and from HoloVids made by the MegaCorp division, Microcorp. After Ratchet and Clank had accidentally been transported into the digital world, they contacted Al in Communication Station. He promised to send a MCGuFIN to them so that they could return to the real world; however, a malfunction in the technology caused a power surge which split MCGuFIN into six parts when it arrived in the digital world. Ratchet and Clank collected the pieces and rebuilt the MCGuFIN. They tried to use it to return to real world but Maximillian appeared in his Security Cannon trying to steal the device from Ratchet and Clank to go to the real world add spread havoc. Ratchet and Clank defeated Maximillian and transported themselves into the real world.
