|Jafar says: Read my lips and come to grips with the reality!|
Ace Hardlight is the secondary antagonist of Ratchet: Deadlocked. He is a former Zordoom prisoner, champion of DreadZone, and Vox's right-hand man. He also serves as one of Ratchet's archenemies (alongside Captain Qwark, Dr. Nefarious, and Emperor Tachyon).
He was voiced by Andre Sogliuzzo.
Ace Hardlight was from an orphanage on the planet Bolden 3. He eventually became part of the superhero group Sonic 7.
Hardlight was taken by Gleeman Vox and has been killing many heroes such as Captain Starshield. He was the highest ranking contestant and became the leader of The Exterminators. Over time, Ace Hardlight's former heroism evaporated, as he was driven to kill heroes for fun and DreadZone completely corrupted his sanity.
Fall And Redemption
Ace Hardlight is ready to defeat Ratchet at the Liberator Tournament. Even though Ratchet only defeated Hardlight, Dallas and Juanita scapegoated Ratchet for 'killing' Ace Hardlight.
After he left the DreadZone station, he was sent to Zordoom prison and was known as Inmate #510D.
Escape From Prison
- "This is as far as you go, Lombax. I am the star around here."
- "You little rodent...you're gonna pay for that!!!"
- "If a Lombax can't see, he can't think. How about a little flashbang?"
- Ace serves as a dark counterpart to Ratchet in the first game. He represents of what Ratchet would've become if he didn't see the error of his ways and fix his mistakes.
