For other uses, see Rat.

Rats are aggressive rodents of a very low level. They are among the weakest creatures in Cyrodiil. Rats can be found in most sewers and often in caves. Rarely, they may be found outdoors in the countryside. They are one of the first enemies the Hero encounters along with goblins, zombies, and the Mythic Dawn in the Imperial City Sewers. Rats have no outstanding strengths, nor weaknesses.


Small with brown fur and grey tail and feet, they have two large incisors at the front of their mouth with which they attack. When attacking they will leap at their target while biting them, releasing a sharp screeching sound while attacking.
