The Chimp-o-Matic is a weapon first found in A Crack In Time. It was originally designed as a gag weapon for parties by some GrummelNet employees, but was later released as a marketed weapon that anyone could obtain - provided they jumped through the right hoops. To obtain the Chimp-o-Matic, Ratchet had to fight through the Overkill challenge in the Agorian Battleplex, released as part of the Raritanium Cup after Ratchet defeated the valkyries on Planet Vapedia alongside General Azimuth.
This weapon is similar to other transmorpher-style weapons in the series, such as the Morph-o-Ray from Ratchet and Clank. However, it is the only one to morph enemies into multiple styles - robotic enemies became monkeys with cymbals, while organic enemies became just simple monkeys.

"The Chimp-O-Matic was originally designed as a party gag by bored GrummelNet engineers. Simply point it at the poor shlub you want to transform and pull the trigger. Presto! Instant monkey-fication! The Chimp-O-Matic! Available only at GrummelNet!"
