This is a list of commands that Clank could issue to Gadgebots, Microbots, or Zoni. Each command would normally sent to all active controllable robots within range of Clank, provided that they accepted that command. In a Gadgebot Survival challenge, the commands were issued to individual robots. Ratchet also at one time had the ability to use commads for his Combat Bots.

The Microbots were MegaCorp's advancement towards Gadgebots. Along with bots similar to Gadgetron's Gadgebots. Microbots could each do a specific ability that Clank and the Gadgetbots otherwise couldn't. Similar to the Gadgebots, the Microbots had each command coordinated under its own specific color which Clank's antennae would turn into to give that specific command. All commands had their own color except for the 'salute' command which would be blue, just like the 'enter' command.

  • In Ratchet: Deadlocked, Ratchet could control the Combat bots in a similar fashion to the way Clank could control the Zoni with the use of sound.
