** Of course, it's only humongous by mice standards. On the other hand, the Limited Edition [[http://i.imgur.com/Maa9HnJ.jpg Ultra MegaMouser MechaBot Trap]] takes this UpToEleven, being humongous by ''human'' standards. It doesn't make a very good mousetrap though, due to the ridiculous size difference. Its primary use is to attract and combat another HumongousMecha made by the [[SuperSentai Force Fighter Five]] mice during the Fifth Birthday Event.

** On 2010's April Fools' Day, the developers released a news post, telling Mousehunters, among other things, that they have created a [[Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}Random Mouse Generator]]. The mice are given supposedly random names made of numbers and alphabets. They are, however, links to a {{Rickroll}} and a {{Muppet}} version of the Bohemian Rhapsody. They also claimed to have made an "Invisible" power-type mouse, known as the "Stealth mouse", with a picture of the "Invisible"-power trap that could catch them. Using a program, somebody found a rather glitchy-looking mouse in silhouette form from the Stealth mouse. And now the joke is an ascended joke -- the Stealth mouse and the decrypted silhouette are both present and catchable in the King's Gauntlet!

MouseHunt is a passive game. The players arm their trap and bait it with cheese and then sounds the "Hunter's Horn" every 15 minutes. Every time the players sound the horn they are taken on a hunt and have a possibility of catching a mouse. For each mouse the players catch, they get a unique reward, which is a certain amount of points and gold.
