Added DiffLines:

* The Wise King of the Forest in ''WebNovel/{{Overlord}}'' is very similar to a hamster, with the exception of a long scaled tail that resembles a snake's more than anything. [[SheIsTheKing She]] is also enormous enough for a human to ride her like a horse, and powerful enough to be worshiped as a legendary beast (though no match against [[AlwaysABiggerFish our ridiculous main character]]).

* Trench rats in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI were often reported to grow to the size of house cats, because of their constant engorging on the corpses in No Man's Land and the soldiers' food. And when feasting on the corpses, these bloated rats [[EyeScream ate out the corpses' eyes first]]. [[http://www.firstworldwar.com/atoz/rats.htm This site]] has a little article about the trench rats in UsefulNotes/WW1. Imagine sleeping with overgrown, bloated rats the size of a house cat running across your face. Nightmare fuel, no?

Added DiffLines:

* In the Creator/JimHenson TV adaptation of ''Literature/EmmetOttersJugBandChristmas'', the members of Emmet's band are all similarly-sized Muppets, even though one of them is a ''muskrat'' and should be less than a quarter as large as the other three (an otter, a porcupine and a beaver).

* "Dire rats" are a common low-level monster in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' that often show up in caves and city sewers. They're scavengers who won't hesitate to attack live prey if they think they can get away with it and carry disease more often than not. There are also [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent wererats]], humanoids cursed to change into dire rats much like werewolves.
** Related monsters include rat swarms, skeletal rat swarms, corpse rat swarms (Zombies!!!), spectral swarms (incorporeal undead that typically result from careless fireball-flinging adventurers inflicting large amounts of collateral damage on the local rat population), cranium rat swarms (psychic rats!!!), moonrats (rats that become more or less intelligent depending on the phases of the moon), and the Tamer of Beasts prestige class from the book Masters of the Wild, who is depicted in the artwork as controlling a massive army of rats.
** And there's the Rylkar from Version 3.5's ''Monster Manual V''. They're basically a nest of giant, evil rats who are connected via a hive mind to their harridan, the huge, disease and corruption spreading, blind matriarch of the nest.
