The Alien Queen was a giant Alien Snapper, encountered at the Blarg Tactical Station and the first boss in the Ratchet & Clank franchise. It summoned smaller space mutant enemies and attacked Ratchet with a lunge. It was defeated by Ratchet so that he could obtain the Grind Boots from Fred the scientist. A skill point could be obtained by defeating the Alien Queen with only the OmniWrench 8000.
It was unknown exactly why it was referred as "Queen"; most likely because of its large size. While it was most certainly not the Queen of all Aliens, it was likely that the creature was the Queen of all the mutants coming from Orxon.

This "Trivia" section, or part of it, needs improving and should ideally be integrated into a "Behind the scenes" section and/or the main article, with the trivia section eventually reduced or, ideally, removed entirely.
- A skill point named Girl Trouble could be obtained by defeating the Alien Queen only with the wrench.
- It was the only boss in Ratchet & Clank that could be transformed into a chicken by Morph-O-Ray. In fact, for some reason it left behind two chickens.
