Skins are wearable items and collectibles in the Ratchet & Clank series. They change the player character's outfit or body entirely, either replacing it with a humorous twist based on real-life apparel or a playable version of an in-game species or character. Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Dr. Nefarious are the only characters who have different skins to equip. Skins are either unlocked by completing missions or challenges in game, or purchased with skill points, dread points, gold, titanium, or hero bolts.
Multiplayer modes also featured different and unique skins to ensure a variety of looks among competing players.
The Renegade armor is a special case in that to unlock it one must complete Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile, followed by entering the name of your multiplayer character on an end-game screen. After that a screen would appear with a code that only worked on the character with the name you entered.
Secret Agent Clank
with Clank, Ratchet and Qwark being playable in Secret Agent Clank, they all have their own sets of skins. Each skin is either bought with titanium bolts or unlocked via a cheat code, and as with Size Matters, some are exclusive to a specific system, in this case the PlayStation Portable.
