The Miner is a character in Ratchet & Clank, with a cameo in Up Your Arsenal. He is a construction worker on planet Hoven who jammed his drill when attempting to drill Raritanium. The Miner is a large, bulky figure, who like many in the Solana Galaxy, is of a species with blue skin and black spikes. He speaks with a thick country accent.
Ratchet and Clank encountered the Miner during "Explore the Icy Wastes". The Miner's drill was stuck, though Ratchet managed to fix it. He thanked Ratchet by granting him the Raritanium, which Ratchet gave to Fred on Pokitaru in exchange for the Persuader.
The Miner later appeared in Up Your Arsenal, watching the premier of the Secret Agent Clank film.
Behind the scenes
The Miner does not appear in the 2016 re-imagined game, as Hoven is absent.
