Rival Ulala
Doctor Nefarious is the main antagonist of the Ratchet & Clank franchise. He appears as one of AdamGregory03's DLC characters for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. His in-game rival is Ulala.



During the 9th grade, Nefarious was constantly bullied by Copernicus Qwark, which involved the classic wedgies, pouring lab beakers on his head, and using his pants to clean the chalkboard (while he was still wearing them). But to throw salt in the wound, Qwark beecame Captain Qwark, mayor of Metropolis. Seeking revenge, Nefarious transformed into the robotic being he is today and continously vows his revenge on Captain Qwark... oh yeah, and that Lombrax.

Nefarious is in his space station working on another romance sci-fi novel, when Lawrence comes in and startles him. After Nefarious yells at him, Lawrence informs Nefarious about the radars picking up a strange, new power source that is actually alive. Nefarious likes the sound of this, and he decides to go after this special power.


Name: Ulala

Reason: Nefarious is in the rival arena when he notices Ulala, who wants to do an exclusive on him. Nefarious at first tries to ignore her, until she asks him about the rumor of him dating a washing machine. At his boiling point, Nefarious confronts Ulala and states she will be sorry.

Connection: Both character's games take place in futuristic locations. Plus, both characters have something to do with spacecraft, where Nefarious lives in his own space station, Ulala was the survivor of a spaceship crash.


Nefarious returns to his space station, where he is greeted by Lawrence. Lawrence asks him how it went, though Nefarious states it's none of his buisiness. He gets into the command center and says that now he has absorbed this new power source, he is ready to return to Metropolis to get his revenge on Qwark... and that Lombax.


Nefarious is a little slow, though he makes up for it by being able to use his jet thrusters as a third jump. He can use bombs and traps.
