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.
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. Zed returned to Drek's office, and later instructed Zed to unleash the Mr. Zurkon's.
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 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.
After Nefarious's defeat, Zed appeared as Captain Qwark's cellmate and personal butler in prison.
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.
