Team Nefarious is a villain organization founded by the evil Doctor Nefarious after his defeat and death in Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time left him in the Banished Realms. Upon escaping due to feeling left out, he now plans to conquer both the Shell Lodge Squad and the Villain League. He currently has control of the UUniversal Boundary Generator which he intends to use to blackmail the Villain League into forsaking Malefor and the rest of the Darkspawn and leave them with no one else to go but them. However, to this day, they still search for the key to doing so. Nefarious rebuilt his space station, only making it a bit larger, and recruited several villains across the UUniverses to aid in his plans.
