This page includes the controls for Size Matters. It was released on both the PlayStation Portable and the PlayStation 2. As such, both the controls for the standard DualShock controller and those for the PSP handheld will be included.

Ratchet

Ratchet is the main character, who you control for most of the gameplay. Instead of letting you choose between three different modes, Size Matters only offers third-person. Lock-strafe is only an option in the PlayStation 2 version, and does not offer the manually controllable reticule like Up Your Arsenal did. Both versions also include a 'view mode' toggle in the 'Camera & Controls' menu, although this includes a first-person mode, it only lets you change the camera controls, and not actually play the game in first-person.

The PSP version's strafe controls are also locked to either the D-pad or analog stick, due to the lack of secondary shoulder buttons. Crouching is done with both shoulder buttons, which are also used to rotate the camera. Select is used to enter first-person view, while the map and missions option has been moved to the pause menu.

Clank

Clank, Ratchet's sidekick, has a few sections in which he has to act on his own. Sometimes, he can use and control Gadgebots, as well as operate several vehicles during the game. These are primarily Torsos in Clank Challenges, but also the BotFlinger, and a series of turrets within Medical Outpost Omega. The Torsos have very simply controls, letting you use their main ability with either Square or X.
