0000 Hyperflux Armor WM

The Red Hyperflux Armor, with an emblem resembling a trident.

The Hyperflux Armor is the final armor available in A Crack in Time, on planet Morklon in the Corvus Sector for 250,000 bolts, and offers 50% protection from any threats to the wearer. Like all final armours in the Ratchet & Clank Series, the Hyperflux Armour covers up all of Ratchet (however the Pirate Hat skin can remove the helmet and reveal the fur on Ratchet's tail). Visual additions include a new, full-face visor and coverings for both ears and tail. The Armor Vendor proclaims that Ratchet would be "positively unkillable" in the Hyperflux Armor, and describes at "durable, dependable, and stunning to look at". In addition, the vendor states it used an Advanced Apogee Recycling System, a bullet-resistant visor, and double-stitched Troglosaur hide.

A plot hole exists for the Hyperflux Armor in that it is available on Morklon ten years into the past during the Battle of Gimlick Valley, as well as in the alternate present. Unless the armor was in fact available at the time, it should be impossible for Ratchet to be able to buy the armor (buying ammo for weapons also suffer from a similar plot hole).


  • The Armor of A Crack in Time is unique among all Ratchet games in the fact that it is in fact holographic armor. This allows for Ratchet to retain a consistent look throughout cinematics and in-game cutscenes. However, there are some differences between a scene and gameplay. The most noticeable one is that the lights for the armor turn off during scenes, and Ratchet's helmet retracts, leaving his cap visible. A more easily missed difference is that the emblems are always that of the Holoflux Armor no matter what type of Armor Ratchet is wearing at the time. The final difference is that the shoulder pads are always the shorter Holoflux variety.
  • The -flux armor in A Crack in Time resembles the Lombax Armor worn by Azimuth and Kaden, particularly the large circular light on Ratchet's chest, which is placed on the right side.
  • The symbol of the Hyperflux armor is actually very similar to that of the Seeker Gun.
