This a little guide I compiled together just to provide all information
for Ratchet & Clank at GameFAQs. This was the only subject I could find
missing. Most of this FAQ has been written by others which is noted where
it says "Credit". The glitches show just how bad the QA Testers were at
finding these things.

Anyway, I hope you like the guide.

A glitch is a minor malfunction, mishap, or technical problem. In this
case it is where something happens that wasn't intended by the programmers
of Ratchet & Clank.

    If you are able to recreate a glitch, please e-mail me! There is
        no point in having a guide full of things that don't work!

This is a way to swim outside of water in nothingness under the level. 
You basically escape Tobruk Crater. Enter the really dark cave near your 
ship. It's in the pool right after the second door. Now go past the three 
circles, and you will come to a supposed dead end.  I somehow slipped 
between the tunnel and the pool. I was outside of the level and I could 
see the things inside the factory moving from outside, and the flying cars 
went right through me! I tried to descend to the ground, but I was still 
swimming and didn't have enough air. If you jump while on the surface of 
the non-existant water, you will fall to the ground and the glitch will
end. I have not been able to recreate this glitch. 

This is a polygon seam. It's where the polygons weren't excated together, 
which leaves a hole into a separate area, but not really an area, just a 
change of character actions. 

Note: This could be the same as Glitch 16. Glitch 16 includes a much
better explanation on how to do it.

Go to the edge of the second level of the Training Course. Look around
and find where you got the gold bolt. Now stretch jump as far as you can 
to try and land on the top level. If you do, you'll be floating on air.

Go to the area where you turn into Giant Clank. Tturn into Giant Clank 
and go to the circular arena where you previously battled the mechs 
and the helicopters. Fall off the circular platform that is right before 
you enter the arena. You should restart at the same place.

This is a great way to gain bolts.

Take the taxi at the start of the level to the racetrack, then turn on the 
hologuise. Enter the race with Triangle. You should have no hoverboard, 
and be able to walk around. If this isn't true, sorry, you have the wrong 
game.

Follow the track until you reach the biggest jump.  It is where you 
first see the Green Amoebas. Equip your taunter. Position yourself a
little after the jump under the platform of boxes in the air.  You will
know if you are in the right place, becuase a stream of bolts will
come down. Once you find the right spot, look straight ahead and weigh
the circle button down with something. Leave on overnight for up to
1.2 million bolts! (It really depends how long you sleep)

I was doing the Hologuise trick and racking up bolts from the 2 by 2 by
2 box set after the 2nd turn. Anyway... I found something on the part
where there is an area like this (in a clockwise direction):

L = Land

X = Where I stood for this

So, what I did was stand about on the X, then did a Boost Jump, then the 
Super-Man stretch jump in mid air, and then did the rocket glide onto the 
island, or really, INTO the island! I kept gliding through the ground
and the texturing of the surface of the "island" covered my screen. Then
the camera went through the "island" surface and I was standing on the
ground like 200 feet below with a bunch of blue circles where the
track's blue circles would have been had it been 200 feet down. Weird...

I could walk around, but couldn't get out! I had to save it and then
load it. Oh well, it is cool to go down there, and there is also a
ramp down there.

I found a glitch at Veldin Orbit. You have to have the temporary
invincibility cheat unlocked to do this. Once you get to the end of the
water course (Without getting hit once), the electricity will come
back on. Now, make sure you have the cheat on. Go get the health to your
left. You'll now be invincible. Now before it runs out, jump into the
water then quickly jump out. Normally doing this would automatically
kill you, but you're invincible. After you jump out most objects will
be white-ish and you'll constantly hear a shock sound. This will stop
once you leave the level.

While taking a ride on the train, I noticed an area that looked like it 
might contain a Gold Bolt (two buildings right after the train starts
with two sky walks connecting them). Deciding there was no other way to
reach the ledge, I eventually decided to jump there from the train.

It took some decent timing, since Ratchet moved with the train, but I
managed to get on the ledge without fail after a couple tries. Here's
what I discovered about this place (Just in case this isn't old):

1. You can walk into the corners of the arcs where you'll be landing as 
though they weren't there.

2. If you walk to the sky walk just around the coner, you can jump onto 
it.

3. From there, you must do a high-jump and push the X-button to lunge 
forward. For some reason, Ratchet will only grab the ledge when you
push X after the High Jump. Once on the ledge, you can jump from wall
to wall to get on the higher ledge. (If you fall from the second level
accidently, glide slowly and you can get back to the first).

4. When on the second level, you can walk across the sky walk to the other 
building, but you cannot get on the building. Trying a High Jump followed
with the jet burst forward caused Ratchet to hit an invisible wall.

5. On the second level, you can go around the corner and get onto the
lower sky walk you saw on the way to the building. Nothing special, but
it's there.

6. You can leap to the red building next to the one you'll land on.
You'll go through the walls, and then through the floor that's displayed
and onto a floor that's an inch underneath. From there you can run around
on the air, and even walk outside of the walls (stay in the middle of the
wall so you're in the indented area of the building) and look around.

It's nothing overly special, and it's probably old news, but finding 
this area and looking around felt really satisfying, so I thought I'd
share my experiences. :)

[der Mouse could not recreate this glitch. Perhaps it does not exist?]
[Update: This glitch was confirmed by lmk357. Thanks for clearing it
 up]

On Qwark's Course, go through the course until you get to the second
swingshot part. Jump into the pool, climb out and you will see a black
wall on your left. If you walk through it, you'll reach a small new area.
If you jump into the water, you can swim around the whole level underwater.
Some pretty crazy stuff can happen. It is best to do this once the level
is fully complete. For some reason they didn't program in a polygon for
either of those two places, I guess they figured nobody would stop there.

Gaint Clank, defeating all the enemies in the ring, and then jumping off the 
cliff to make yourself invincible. If not, look up. Well if you go back to

This is a swimming on air glitch that I have been able to repeat many 
times. Location is Tobruk Crater, Planet Novalis. In the mushroom cave
next to the ship, second room with the three pools. The bottom pool where 
there is a corner facing the doorway, press forward and jump at the same 
time. Now you are swimming through the cave, you can dive down under the 
"water" and jump, too. You come back to earth when you swim over the water 
in the next room.

Go to Fort Krontos, on Batalia. Go to the building on the left near
the start - the one protected with a Trespasser lock, the one with a
gold bolt on its roof.  Don't go in, though; instead, go to the corner
on the right.  The curved part of the corner wall is purple; from the
purple part, running outward to the edge of the floor, are two parallel
lines, about as far apart as Ratchet's foot is long.  Stand between
them, as close to the purple as you can get, but with the camera facing
off to the right, in the direction where the floor ends.  Hold L1.
Voila, most of the landscape disappears; you can see the water flowing,
a lot of plants, a few distant moving things, but it's all floating in
midair, visually.

Hologuise. If you hold still, you'll bounce as if on a trampoline.

Swingshot your way along to the last floating ledge in the water before
the tunnel. Equip your Hologuise, then change back to Ratchet. You will
see a small rock inbetween two large rocks in the water. Try to jump
to this small rock while repeatedly pressing Circle and holding Forward.
If successful, you should go underwater. Quickly use the Direction Pad
to move out of the way of the rocks. If you aren't underwater, keep
trying. It takes myself about 20 times to get under. It helps to have
the Hydro-Pack and 02 Mask, though they're not strictly necessary. 
Anyway, now you can swim all over...or rather, under Rilgar! The bay
area is rather boring, since if you surface, you won't be able to dive
back under (unless you just repeat the instructions), but you can go
interact with the fish/dinosaur things - safely, I might add, as long
as you stay under the water. Also, if you head out of the bay (towards
the main part of the city), you can look at the underside of the buildings
and other structures. There's a lot of places where if you climb too
much, you'll suddenly start falling to your death, but if you're lucky
you can hover back to the "safety" of the sometimes invisible water.

But perhaps the most fun thing to do is to head northwest, to the actual
water areas. The light-colored horizontal areas (they look like light-blue
paper) represent a different water level. There's actually several of them.
Though you'll get confined to that level (i.e., you can go no higher than
that) once you touch it, I still recommend it for the following reason.
Once you enter the lower water, the screen's colors will switch to
abovewater, so it won't be all blue anymore. Now, swim out of the visible
water plane, so you appear to be swimming in midair, and dive. Apparently,
if you don't pass through a visible water membrane, the game doesn't know
to turn everything blue. There's other ways to do it, but this is the
easiest. Now you can explore the outsides of the water paths in living
color! You can also enter them by swimming right through the walls, but
you'll usually get confined to the path once you do. It's also worth
mentioning that you can't see the tunnels and exteriors if you're too far
away. You can follow the lights that line the insides, though, and the
tunnels will appear when you approach them. The exteriors are suprisingly
detailed for something you weren't really meant to see. But be careful
that you don't swim too far up - if you reach the invisible surface,
you'll start to fall - usually to your death if you can't hover back to
an area with a visible surface (you don't have to hit the surface, you
just have to be under it, I think).

Other than swimming around the outsides of the tunnels (or inside with an 
abovewater look), there's not much point to this. All I've actually gotten 
from is a few bolts that were attracted to me by swimming close enough to 
the walls. It's fun, though.

Finally, if you stuck inside the tunnels, there's one other seam I know
of. It's hard to get through, but I've repeated it several times. At the
top of the dirt tunnel that you originally get "flushed" down, there's a
place where you can swim through and end up outside. When you're in the
tunnel, facing the top room, it's on your left, at the very top of the
water. Just keep pushing through at that spot, and wiggle around a little.
The same place (or near it) once resulted with me in the room, above the
water, functioning normally, but with the underwater look and sound
effects. Ratchet wasn't wearing his 02 mask or swimming, but it looked
like it was underwater. I couldn't repeat it, though.

Enter the tunnel on the left (the one where you use the Hydrodisplacer)
and continue through until you come to last one. Go inside the tunnel.
Destroy the boat-steering-wheel-thing and stand where it was. Equip your
Taunter and face it to the right side. Start using it and bolts will
come flying at you, and they won't stop! This is very similar to the
Hologuise Trick.

[For some reason, this worked on one save file of mine and didn't work on

Enter the Rilgar track with the Hologuise and you should be walking
around. Unequip the Hologuise and tap R1 twice to hover with the Thruster
Pack. If you hover all the way to the water you should be hovering above
it. Normally you wouldn't be allowed to do this.

Head backward where there are two force fields that require you pressing
on those three green buttons...or so I thought. One time I wasn't able to
press all the buttons while wall jumping up to the force field, then
decided for fun to run into it...except, I ran through it. So I
decided to try this again, and it still worked. I then tested the first
force field, and found that it too allows you to walk through it without
having to press the buttons. I guess the programmers forgot to program
the part where the force field prevents entry until the buttons are
pressed.

After opening the final Invinco-Lock, the one that gets you into the
room where you can kill the Blarg gunners, if you go the farthest window
in the room and jump, Ratchet will go through it and appear outside.

In the same room, if you Boost Jump and attempt to land on one of the
green lights in the room, Ratchet will continuously do his falling
animation. You will be unable to move him, and a few seconds later, you
will be back at the last Continue Point, as if you died.

I'm not sure if this is a glitch, but if it is I very highly recommend
that anyone who attempts to do this glitch (as if they would want to...)
to not have auto-save enabled. In fact, they should just take out the
Memory card and leave it out. This glitch occurs on Planet Orxon. While
playing as Clank, and following the first path, when you get to the end
you're SUPPOSED to go and get the Magneboots...but, it is possible to go
AROUND them, skipping them entirely. Then you can go and get the Infobot
for Pokitaru, and play the game normally. When you get the O2 Mask,
you'll need to return to Orxon. Now, I thought that since I did not
pick up the Magneboots that you would still play as Clank so that you
could get the Magneboots, since to get the Infobot you'll need them.
However, this was not the case. Therefore, since the paths that Clank took
are closed off until you get the Infobot, the only path I could take was
the one to the Premium Nanotech dispenser, and while I could go down and
get back to the ship, there was a closed gate in front of the room where
you would send the Gadge-Bots into the Bot-Device, and therefore I could
not get the Magneboots, which meant that I was stuck. Thankfully, I did
not save my game throughout this series of events, so none of my save
files had to be replaced.

I was playing Planet Rilgar, Blackwater City. You know the Raceway Plaza, 
where you have to talk to the hot looking purple and green chick in order 
to get into the race? Well, I was shooting her with all kinds of weapons 
to try to get a response out of her. Nothing worked, but I noticed she was
watching me. So I stood in front of her and just started doing side flips. 
I did about 8 or 10 side flips, back and forth, and I couldn't believe my 
eyes... her breasts were moving! I tried some more side flips, and again, 
couldnot believe what I was seeing...her boobs were getting bigger! This 
is not a joke folks - try it out yourself. Stand in front of her, and just 
do side flips back and forth, back flips also work. Do several, and you 
will see it for yourself. Her breasts get as big as her head!

To make them shrink again, crouch under them. This will not work on Edwina, 
or any other female character. Her breasts stay like that even in the movie 
with her, but her hands go right through her breasts.
