"Why be you, when you can be NEW?"
~ Ratchet changing Bigweld's inspirational slogan.

Phineas T. Ratchet is the secondary antagonist of the 2005 animated film Robots. He was trying to take over the Bigweld Industries over lies and manipulation so that he can recycle all outmoded & discarded robots in town.

Ratchet is voiced by Greg Kinnear.


He hates Rodney bringing Bigweld back to life. His goal is to destroy Bigweld. He has a mother named Madame Gasket, who is the true mastermind behind Ratchet's plot to take over Robot City. He loves Cappy who he wants her to be his wife but she is repulsed by him and his motives. When Bigweld returns to Bigweld Industries, Ratchet was told to get out. Then, in a fit of desperation, Ratchet pops Bigweld in the head with the intercom, knocking him out. Then he ordered his guards to send Bigweld to the Chop Shop and to "put my name on his parking space." Then, during the battle, he activated the moving pails to dump Bigwled and sets his cars to destroy everything and then, his cars are knocked down. When Madame Gasket was pushed into the melter, Ratchet tries to escape on a cable but bumped into the roof and lost all his upgraded parts. His father tries to comfort him with Bigweld's inspirational motto, but Ratchet cuts him off, growling, "Oh, just STOP!"

It is unknown what happened to Ratchet afterwards, though he is most likely to end up in prison for his crimes, or remains strapped to the roof with his dad.
