The 2016 re-imagined game and movie are in-universe fictional accounts of the original Ratchet & Clank.
The re-imagined game describes Captain Qwark's account of events, while the re-imagined film is an in-universe holofilm. As Qwark is an unreliable narrator, and the holofilm is fiction, any events that contradict the original are non-canon (though those which correspond still apply). Please see Project:Bulletin board/Canon for the wiki's coverage of canon.

Zed is a minor character in the Ratchet & Clank 2016 re-imagined game and the Ratchet & Clank movie. He is a small service robot who worked as Chairman Drek's attendant until he was captured by the Galactic Rangers.

History

Zed is first seen accompanying Chairman Drek on both the Deplanetizer and on Quartu, heading to Quartu when the Galactic Rangers attacked. When Clank infiltrated the factory, Zed attempted to lay down traps and sent Chompers and warbots to stop Clank from progressing further into the factory, until Clank eventually cornered him into a container and activated Zed's computer to disable the factory's security.[1] Zed returned to Drek's office, and later instructed Zed to unleash the Mr. Zurkon's.[2]

Drek escaped Quartu in a shuttle, leaving Zed behind, for the Galactic Rangers to interrogate him. Cora Veralux eventually threatened to drop him off a ledge, and forced him to reveal Drek's next target, Novalis. He was then placed in a prison cell on board the Starship Phoenix. When Clank defeated Victor Von Ion in front of him, Zed asked if he could switch sides.

Zed and Grimroth

Zed later helped Grimroth Razz and the Rangers install Mag Boosters into their class-g Star Jumpers, and explained how Dr. Nefarious would betray Drek and the blarg, attempting to destroy an entire star system by blowing up Umbris' unstable core.[2]

After Nefarious's defeat, Zed appeared as Captain Qwark's cellmate and personal butler in prison.[1]

Characteristics

Zed is a small flying robot with a single yellow eye in the form of a visor and two arms, with his paint resembling a butler. He is apparently incompetent, and given little respect by Drek, who left him at the first opportunity. He tends to talk too much, which annoys others, much less Drek.

Zed's email is SpaceGangsta_72@Zed.com.[2][1]

Behind the scenes

Zed's character model is based on the maintenance bots that appeared in Full Frontal Assault and Into the Nexus. Zed in particular resembles Bleep.
