* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'', where the main character is an intelligent, urbane rat with a gourmand's taste in food and the ability to cook like a classically trained chef. Of course, most of the other rats are classless, tactless layabouts, but at least they aren't ''evil''.
** Averted even further in the SpinOff [[PixarShorts short]], "Your Friend the Rat", in which Remy and Emile try to argue for the reconciliation of humans and rats, using historical facts presented to various styles of animation. Among other things, they explain that ThePlague was actually caused by fleas that got attached to black rats, not by the rats themselves, and in fact, the brown, or Norway, rat, the kind of rat that Remy and Emile are, had supposedly helped to end the Plague.
*** And then this is alternately played with and double-subverted during the end credits, when a cautionary message allegedly from the clip's producers scrolls by to remind the audience that rats are vicious, unsanitary, pestilent vermin, and anyone who interacts with them do so at their own risk, as Remy and Emile can be heard vigorously protesting in the background.
** Also subverted in ''Animation/{{Ratatoing}}'', a cheap knock-off of ''Ratatouille''. Rats are both heroes and villains, being a {{Mockbuster}}.

* Again in ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'', where the rats are, as a group, no more good or evil than any other random population.

* In ''{{Enchanted}}'', the rats do a considerable share of the housework while under the influence of [[FriendToAllLivingThings Giselle's]] "Happy Working Song". Only one mouse is seen to help out, and it's only there because a rat wouldn't fit in the bathtub drainhole.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': The plot of "Bass To Mouth" revolves around the kids trying to stop an [[VisualPun evil rat]] named [[TakeThat "Wiki Leaks"]] from posting embarrassing personal stories about them online.
** Though since Wiki Leaks is the brother of Lemmiwinks the gerbil, the kids probably just [[IAmNotWeasel got his species wrong.]]

* Mortimer Mouse, [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse Mickey Mouse]]'s rival, despite having mouse in his name, looks more like an anthropomorphic rat. He's got the [[Main/Jerkass behavior]] to boot, and usually acts as a recurring antagonist of Mickey and his friends, usually in the earlier shorts and in ''[[WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse House of Mouse]]''. His plans usually consist of him trying to take away Minnie from Mickey, and overall being an annoyance for them most of the time.

** Probably not, though. It's been confirmed by the creator of FNAC that RAT is ''not'' a hybrid suit. Doesn't make him any less scary, though.

In ''Anime/EnchantedJourney'', there are friendly rats, like kindly old Gamba who helps Glikko out on his journey, but the duo encounter an entire army of vicious, evil rats who want to tear them apart and eat them.

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtCandys'': in this ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' fangame, one of the major antagonists is a highly damaged, semi-destroyed animatronic aptly named [[ADogNamedDog RAT]], whose name alone seems to be an acronym. Much like Springtrap from the third game, he's strongly implied to be a faulty hybrid suit. And just like Springy, he may very well contain a [[SarcasmMode lovely surprise]] inside...

* The Mice in ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' are all virtuous, loving immigrants. Warren T. Rat, on the other hand, [[spoiler:isn't even a rat, but [[AssInALionSkin a cat]], and one of the bad ones at that]]. It also briefly features a huge, scary rat who is a sweatshop owner.

Rat, on the other hand, [[spoiler:isn't even a rat, but [[AssInALionSkin a cat]], and one of the bad ones at that]]. It also briefly features a huge, scary rat who is a sweatshop owner. On the other hand, rats show up as background characters in the original film and its sequels, and while some do act jerkish, the great majority is just trying to survive alongside the mice.
