Tabletop Game / Rap Rat

Go To

Rap Rat is an infamous board game released in the early 90s; along with the board, dice and puzzle pieces, it was an "interactive" game that came with a VHS tape, and had to be watched along gameplay, so that the titular Rap Rat (played by a puppet) would give instructions... while doing very embarrassing "rap" and being Totally Radical.

It is now more famous for its creepypasta and cringeworthy video clips.


This board game provides examples of:

  • Broken Record: Rap Rat's basic way of "rapping".
  • Cartoon Cheese: Most of the scenery.
  • Jive Turkey: Rap Rat.
  • The '90s: It could only be a product of the early part of this decade.
  • Piss Take Rap: Any self-respecting rap artist wouldn't really call Rap Rat's rap real rap.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: How most of the "rapping" is done.
  • Stock Animal Diet: Rap Rat is surrounded by Swiss cheese that he chomps to during game sessions. What else would he eat?
  • Totally Radical: The game tries too hard to be "cool" and "hip with the kids". Not just Rap Rat, but also the voiceover narrator.
  • You Dirty Rat!: Averted; Rap Rat is supposed to be a sympathetic character... but we can bet many will find him annoying or borderline creepy.

How well does it match the trope?
