Similar in many ways to BeneathTheEarth, MouseWorld exists in secret on the fringes of human society; the difference is scale. This is an entire class of stories built around tiny protagonists operating just out of sight in the human world. These come in a few flavors, but all share some important common elements. In any case, the lives of the little folk draw eerie parallels to the lives of the big-folk.

If they deal with human opponents directly, expect clever trickery, stealth and the odd ColossusClimb or GulliverTieDown. They may become DinkyDrivers to operate human vehicles. If humans aren't aware of them in the slightest (as in most cases), it's usually because they either have a strong WeirdnessCensor, the tiny species is keeping a complex and clever [[TheMasquerade masquerade]], or they simply regard talking and/or clothed {{Funny Animal}}s or tiny humanoids as an UnusuallyUninterestingSight. In some cases one lucky human ([[ChildrenAreSpecial usually a child]]) SpeaksFluentAnimal and is the only human character in the story aware of the tiny species. In combination with an IncredibleShrinkingMan, you can have a TrappedInAnotherWorld plot. Other slightly larger animals such as cats and dogs may also play a role in this world, but expect AnimalJingoism to come into play, along with examples of CatsAreMean.

* The tiny stitchpunks of ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'' live in a [[ScavengerWorld Scavenger]] MouseWorld AfterTheEnd. Noticing everything they've used for their technology, such as a sextant for a telescope, is a lot of fun.

* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'''s Sackpeople are 8cm tall. This becomes obvious when you compare them to the backgrounds, and some of the real-world objects (e.g. the ruler).

* ''Webcomic/{{Scurry}}'', where the main characters are talking mice who inhabit in a ruined human house and live by screening human food -- though, as fitting the tone of the (possibly) post-apocalyptic setting, they have very little of the usual comforts of the trope.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'' is one of the few ones where an unnamed and [[HumansThroughAlienEyes unseen boy]] serves as a minor antagonist. Also, Insectopia is made out of trash and the end-reveal, which isn't much of a reveal thanks to the poster, shows that the Z's whole adventure happened in [[spoiler: Central Park]] making it more specific than usual about the human world.
