* ''TabletopGame/MiceAndMystics'' has this as a central conceit. Through an EmergencyTransformation, the heroes battle evil as mice, and the regular mice they encounter are just as sentient, upstanding, and heroic.

* An expansion of TabletopGames/BigEyesSmallMouth, called ''Big Ears, Small Mouse'' allowed role play in a MouseWorld, similar to ''TheSecretOfNIMH'', ''TheRescuers'', and ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''.

* As mentioned under YouDirtyRat, the common stereotypes are inverted. While rats can be well-trained, friendly, loving, and compassionate, even trained mice will bite their owner anyway and will escape if given half the chance, unlike the more loyal domestic rats. They also tend to have less desire to keep themselves clean than rats do. Wild mice also ''love'' the taste of blood and if they can get to an incapacitated living creature ([[ParanoiaFuel like, say, a sleeping human]]) have even been known to drink their body weight in blood if they can get away with it.

While rats can be well-trained, friendly, loving, and compassionate, even trained mice will sometimes bite their owner anyway and will for no obvious reason. Mice also tend to escape if given half the chance, unlike the more loyal domestic rats. They also tend rats, which usually return to their cage after exploring a bit. Mice often have less desire to keep themselves clean than rats do. Wild Finally, male mice also housed together usually end up killing one another, unlike male rats which can co-habit peacefully.

* Played straight in ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNimh'', where the main character Mrs Brisby and her children are your standard animated mice, though somewhat fearful and skittish due to their small size and large amount of natural enemies. Unfortunatly, the majority of the Mice of NIMH were killed during the escape from the research facility, leaving only Mr Aegis and Jonathan, Mrs Brisby's husband. The movie also averts YouDirtyRat however, as all the rats in the movie, aside from the main villain, are benevolent uplifted creatures.

* Subverted in ''Discworld/MovingPictures'' with Definitely Not Squeak, a mouse who began talking under the influence of Holy Wood cinemagic. Told of this trope, he was outraged that humans consider his kind sweet and delicate, as he was the most badass mouse in the house and proud of it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Drastically'' subverted in ''WesternAnimation/{{Epic}}'', in which Mary Katherine's expectations about this trope nearly get her killed. Only her leafman companion's quick reflexes save her from discovering that, to creatures the size of insects, an ordinary field mouse is a ''predator''.

* The mice in ''Disney/TheRescuers'' and ''TheRescuersDownUnder'' are so nice they form a society to rescue children in need.

Very small and cute, yet wild, the mouse is an animal often used as a metaphor for someone easily underestimated. Thus, mouse characters and humanoid mouse races tend to be heroic and really good people, yet easily underestimated. In many works, this last trait is something they have grown to deeply resent. It's hard to demand respect from someone when you can't even reach his knees and your voice is very squeaky - no matter how brave you are.
