Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Rats were small rodents found on Earth. They were considered a pest by the Humans.

According to folklore, in 1284 the Pied Piper rid the German town of Hamelin of its rats. (TVC: Challenge of the Piper, SJA: The Day of the Clown)

In the 14th century, rats carried the bubonic plague throughout Europe by their fleas. Terileptil prisoners who found themselves near London in the 1666 exploited the fact, and infected the rats to carry with an enhanced, especially lethal version of the plague, so that they could have the planet to themselves. (DW: The Visitation)

Rats were used in experiments as test subjects, since they could be bred quickly. In the late 19th century, Magnus Greel made some rats into giants in order to guard his underground laboratory, which he accessed via the London sewers. (DW: The Talons of Weng-Chiang) A lab rat was used by Owen Harper to demonstrate to the Torchwood 3 team the ultimately lethal effects of the "Sex Gas" on its host. (TW: Day One)

In the 1970s, Arthur Linwood, who had a morbid fear of rats, was killed when the Keller Machine turned his fear against him. His fear was so great that rat bites and scratches manifested on his face and neck. (DW: The Mind of Evil)

In the early 2000s, undercover Krillitane at Deffry Vale High School freeze-dried rats in order to eat them later. (DW: School Reunion)

Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Rat refers to a type of rodent, on Earth originating in family Muridae, although the species does exist in otherworldly forms.

Brown rats (Rattus norvegicus) originated in Central Asia and arrived in Great Britain in 1730, reaching the United States of America in 1775.

Rats were considered extinct - though by uncertain means - by 2267; however, this was proved to be incorrect when Hikaru Sulu brought one on board the USS Enterprise, which he had acquired on Vishnu and named Mickey. (TOS novel: Mission to Horatius)

Q once turned Jean-Luc Picard into a rat, in order to unobtrusively watch the events of an alternate timeline. (TNG comic: "The Gift")

Odo would often disguise himself as a rat when needing to eavesdrop on others. Odo once disguised himself as a rat in order to listen to a conversation between the Kohn-Ma terrorist Tahna Los and the Duras sisters Lursa and B'Etor. He later disguised himself as a rat while hiding on a Kressari freighter, and while in that form witnessed a Cardassian gul transferring weapons meant for the Bajoran Alliance for Global Unity movement. (DS9 episodes: "Past Prologue", "The Circle")

In addition to eavesdropping, Odo would adopt the form of a rat when needing to move rapidly through areas where his regular humanoid form would not fit. Odo used the form of a rat to catch Nog in a crawlspace after Nog played a prank on the station security forces. (DS9 novel: The Siege)

Rizzo (in the coat) and the rats in episode 503 of The Muppet Show.

The Rats were often seen scuttling around the Muppet Theater on The Muppet Show. Their unofficial leader is Rizzo the Rat.

The first Muppet rats were built out of plastic bottles by Don Sahlin for the 1972 special The Muppet Musicians of Bremen. Those puppets were used later for The Muppet Show. They were redesigned and refurbished for future use.

A dead rat in Crow's Nest.

Rats are a species of rodent native to Earth, with the first "true" rats originating in Asia.

They are distinguished from mice in their larger size and are often kept as pets or used for scientific study. Rats originally ate plants, but they can eat many things such as meat (mostly carcasses or each other) and garbage. Rats usually have from 5 to 10 offspring in each pregnancy, which is one of the reasons their population grows so fast.

Appearances

Dead rats in Rat's Nest.

Rats appear on most of the Campaign levels set on Earth, most notably Crow's Nest, as well as the Multiplayer map Rat's Nest in Halo 3, to tie in with the map, though all the rats found on Rat's Nest are already dead, likely due to the fact that they would appear on radar and confuse the players.

In Crow's Nest, it is possible to kill the rats, and when killed they will roll around in a prone form. When they are shot at or encountered they will squeal characteristically and will appear as small yellow dots on your motion tracker.

Rats have been noticed around the butchered area of the barracks on Crow's Nest, most likely feeding on the dead Marines.

Eloise was Daniel Faraday's lab rat at Oxford University's Queen's College Physics Department in 1996. Her consciousness was sent forward in time, allowing her to run a maze perfectly, having supposedly been taught the course by Faraday one hour in the future. Later in the day, Eloise died. The cause was unknown, but Faraday hypothesized she had suffered a brain aneurysm. According to his theory, not having any constant, her consciousness couldn't differentiate between the future and the present. ("The Constant")

An Oxford janitorial custodian had the job of incinerating Faraday's dead subject rats so that no one would discover the purposes and results of his experiments. ("Jughead")

Trivia

  • The name "Eloise" may come from the movie The Million Dollar Hotel, the movie in which Jeremy Davies (Daniel Faraday) stars. He plays the character of Tom, who is in love with a woman named Eloise.
  • Daniel presumably named Eloise after his mother, Eloise Hawking.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Rats are small animals which can be found almost anywhere. They are best found inside the Lumbridge Castle (Floor one). Their tails are most commonly used for the completion of The 'Witches Potion' quest. They're also one of the weakest creatures on runescape.

Contents

Cats

Players who have a cat or a kitten can tell it to chase vermin, in which case it will try to attack any rat in range. Also, if you have a Rat pole, a rat will be added to it each time a rat is caught by your cat.

Drops

100% Drops

Other drops

A player has to be doing the quest to even get these drops and a player can only have one of each at a time. (Except for the tail) l

Trivia

The Class Pet
  • The examine text is based on the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett, who goes into detail describing the ways dwarves eat rats.
  • A Rat bone, which differs from the usual bones dropped by rats, are rare drops used in the Rag and Bone Man quest. This bone cannot be buried. Surprisingly, rats in the Stronghold of Security drop bones, while rats everywhere else in RuneScape do not. It is unknown if Jagex meant for this to happen or if this is a glitch.
  • There is a rat in Surprise Exam!, however it is the "class pet" and you cannot attack it.
  • Rats do not appear on the minimap.
  • Rats are, perhaps, one of the weakest monsters in RuneScape, along with the level 1 Spider.
  • The rats in the Stronghold of Security are one of the weakest monsters to drop bones. Strangely enough, rats in other places do not drop bones.

Glitches

When attacking a rat and the game has lagged, the rat's health bar shows that it was dead. However, the rat is still alive. The rat stayed alive until attacked again, when it immediately died.

(this has happened more than once, it's happened to me in my experience at Brother Galahad's house)
