* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersBeastWars''[[note]]and its sequel series, ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines[[/note]], Rattrap's rat mode is shown being significantly larger than normal rats. This is especially unusual in that Transformers has previously shown a willingness to show characters alternate forms as being significantly smaller than their robot modes would indicate (Megatron, Soundwave, Blaster, etc.).

** In the cartoons, the Maximals and Predacons of ''Beast Wars'' were smaller descendants of the Autobots and Decepticons. The IDW comics have [[CanonForeigner brought in some Beast-era charactersto their G1-based universe,]] made them Autobots and Decepticons, and sized them up to fit in with the general populace. Rattrap is one of them, meaning his rat mode is apparently the size of a ''car''.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'': the Kuma-Nui, a large combiner figure built of two already decent-sized models, was a rat. A rat with an extendable neck, gorilla-arms and tank-threads for legs.

* Lampshaded in the Russian play "The General Inspector" by Gogol. One character ''dreams'' of two "Rodents of Unusual Size" the night before becoming a letter that said inspector is secretly coming to his town - and since he is an ObstructiveBureaucrat, it's a very bad thing indeed.

[[YouDirtyRat Rats]] are probably the most formidable and tenacious mammals in existence, being blessed with swift feet, durable incisors, impressive cunning and intelligence, [[ZergRush numbers]], and an all-consuming sense of self-preservation. The only thing they lack, it seems, is [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever physical size and power]][[note]] and longevity (the average rat is very lucky to make three years) but don't expect to see ''that'' brought up often[[/note]]. Then, given that final boon, they would surely transform from shadow-scurrying scavengers to [[AttackOfTheKillerWhatever feared, flesh-rending predators]] that would have leather-clad barbarians knocking their knees together.

together (but at least they're easier to hit than life-sized rats).

* "Scabby the Rat" is an inflatable mascot used by labor unions in the eastern United States as a picketing display. Court cases in defense of the unions' right to display Scabby have ruled that showing him constitutes protected speech under the First Amendment, striking down attempts to ban such inflatable figures for non-commercial purposes.
