|Appears in||Rayman 3, Rayman Legends|
From infancy, the Rat was tortured by the Knaarens. He's a melancholy soul and he just loves it when folk remind him of his earliest days by beating the hell out of him.—In-game description, Rayman 3
A rat is a small background creature, which can usually be seen crawling along the ground in Rayman 3. Like turtles, they can be kicked by Rayman, sending them spinning though the air. They appear mostly in the Desert of the Knaaren, but one can also be found on the floor of the Fairy Council, and several others can be seen in Count Razoff's mansion in the Bog of Murk. As a result of their tormented upbringing under the Knaaren, rats appear to derive some form of masochistic pleasure from pain – when kicked by Rayman, they usually comment with perverse sentences.
Rats also appear in Rayman Legends, but merely as background elements and unable to be interacted with.
