R.A.L.P.H. (short for Robotic Arachnid Lithium Photo Helper[1]) is a robotic spy bug belonging to Juni Cortez.


Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams[]

In Spy Kids 2, R.A.L.P.H. was first seen in helping putting on Juni's bowtie. Later, when he and Carmen needed R.A.L.P.H. to gain information on the assignment the Giggles kids were assigned on. The little robot completed its mission, but got stepped on by Gary Giggles. He returned it to Juni, saying it was an "accident".

In the credits, it was shown that R.A.L.P.H. was fixed and for now walked on crutches with a cast, though it's presumably non-canon.

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over[]

In Spy Kids 3, R.A.L.P.H. was shown to have been completely fixed, and was seen at the Cortezes' tree house, where Juni asked him to write a thank-you note to Romero for the miniature sharks. While writing, R.A.L.P.H. got into a fight with Juni's new pet, a miniature Spider Monkey. At the end of the film, R.A.L.P.H. and the Spider Monkey joined their hands along with the Cortezes' big family. As the hands parted, the robot was flung into the air and crashed on the screen. R.A.L.P.H smiled nervously at the audience.

Freeze Frame[]



  • Six legs with suction tips for climbing
  • Grappling cables from the front legs, with suction tips that can grip walls, allowing him to swing without hitting the ground
  • Broadcast mode
  • Built-in camera
  • Built-in miniature computer that acts as a "brain", containing an A.I. that allows him to think, act, function, and react to physical and/or mental stimuli. It also seems to give him semi-sapience.
  • Miniature brush


  • The way he swings with his grappling cables is similar to how the Marvel superhero Spider-Man swings on his webs. 
  • The "A" for R.A.L.P.H.'s name stands for "Arachnid". Though R.A.L.P.H. contains six legs so he should be considered an insect. Arachnids in real life have eight legs.
