The golden rule of the Clank! series thus far is this: Any Clank! symbol (or group of symbols) means "Add Clank!"
Only a modifier such as a "minus sign" changes that.
Right, the confusion is about the target of the penalty. The only time the clank symbol is referenced in the rule book is under Major Secrets - Sonic Grenade whereupon that symbol means "your opponents immediately make clank".
