Clank (Ratchet & Clank, 2002)

Clank (Ratchet & Clank, 2002)

More of a backkick than a sidekick, Clank rides piggyback on Ratchet for most of Ratchet & Clank, a burden apparently accepted on the strength of the robot's aptitude for getting the protagonist out of tight spots, usually by turning himself into some sort of back-mounted jetpack. Much less worrisome than having a monkey on your back.
