Compare PsychoSidekick. Not to be confused with ACTUAL pet rats, such as [[DirtyCoward Scabbers]] in ''Literature/HarryPotter''.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Judge Fairfox from the "Fall of Deadworld" series was the Chief Judge's "fixer" before the coup d'etat staged by the Dark Judges. This is why Judge Death is interested in turning Fairfax into his fourth main lieutenant.

** Virtually the entire population of Ankh-Morpork seems to be in this relationship to the Patrician sometimes, though some are a little less rat-like than others. The Dark Clerks and Moist von Lipwig at least maintain façades of respectability most of the time, while Commander Vimes keeps Nobby Nobbs in the reformed Watch because of his keen feeling for the streets.

* There are quite a few in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' thanks to the feudal nature of the system... although calling "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Mountain That Rides]]" a "rat" is, frankly, not doing [[AxCrazy Gregor Clegane]] justice, for all he does do some seriously dirty jobs for House Lannister beyond simply killing problems as messily as possible. And, then there is the fact that this is the Brave Companions aka "The Bloody Mummers" whole shtick. Lord Walder Frey is a notable example of the breed, though. He's certainly a [[SmugSnake very slimy rat]]... who occasionally doesn't even bother to turn up to do his job as a pet [[spoiler: and went on to throw in the towel and become a full-on {{Starscream}}, but only with the help of more powerful backers.]] Even when [[spoiler: switching masters to gain the new job]], he still needs to have one to bolster his own position in the world.
* ''HarryPotter'' has Mundungus Fletcher, purveyor of miscellaneous objects of dubious provenance, as Dumbledore's pet rat.

* Beadle from SweeneyTodd, who happens to be played by [[HarryPotter that other rat.]] In the story he does a lot of dirty work for Judge Turpin.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Jaime Lannister calls Locke this by name. Unusually for this trope, the man he works for (Roose Bolton) is a TokenEvilTeammate, so doesn't really need one (especially since Locke doesn't really operate in the shadows, and is quite open about working for Bolton). Consequently, the term comes across more as a simple insult than this trope.
