Rusty Pete was Captain Slag's first mate. He usually appeared alongside his captain singing a pirate melody.
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of DestructionEdit
In Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, he accompanied Slag in his campaign to find the fabled Lombax Secret. After many fights against the space pirates, Ratchet and Clank found the Lombax Secret, the Dimensionator, on Jasindu, only to have Slag and Pete arrive. Ratchet refused to give Slag the Dimensionator, but was forced to by the threat of Pete slashing Clank with his sword and sending him to the locker. Ratchet then infiltrated Slag's Fleet in Ublik Passage and defeated him. Slag's body exploded and his head landed in Pete's hands. Slag told Pete the goodness of the afterlife and passed on. After briefly mourning his captain he named Ratchet as new pirate captain as per the code. At the end of the game he tried to teach Qwark to talk like a pirate with an "Argh!" phrase. He was angry and frustrated that Qwark couldn't do it right, so he shook his head and said "I'm gonna need more Grog".
Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for BootyEdit
In Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty, he narrated the story along with Captain Slag. Ratchet searched for Angstrom Darkwater so he could reach the Zoni dimension using the Fulcrum Star, which Darkwater used to communicate to the Zoni. Rusty Pete accompanied Ratchet and Talwyn to find the star, aiding with some of the clues and puzzles. During the game he carried the head of Slag on a stick, calling it "Slag on a stick". Later he betrayed Ratchet and resurrected Captain Slag, his ultimate plan all along, by attaching Slag's head to Darkwater's body. He accompanies Slag (who had to share the body with Darkwater). After Ratchet defeated Slag and Darkwater, Slag's head fell to the depths, with Pete going to save him, unwittingly throwing the Fulcrum Star to Ratchet. He and Slag were last seen on a crate stuck in the middle of the ocean. Pete was revealed to have been reading the story to Slag, who didn't want to hear it the first time. He told Pete he would stop yelling when he found him a new body. He then ordered Pete to row for the remainder of the scene. They would most likely be reappearing in the next game.
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in TimeEdit
In A Crack in Time, Pete was one of the radio-hosts in the radio channel, Pirate Radio. Rusty Pete also appeared in the arcade game, My Blaster Runs Hot, as the character controlled by the second player in co-op mode.
