The Rats are enemies encountered in the Cellar of Derceto Manor. Considering their size and deadliness, they may in fact be Rat-things such as those described in H.P. Lovecraft's The Dreams of the Witch House.
There are 3 rats in the cellar.
The rats are invincible, but they are fairly slow and can be trapped between the shelves. They are weak, but if they swarm they can easily kill the player. Each of their bites deals 1 damage.
- The sounds made by the rats sounds like an eagle. The same sound is used in Alone in the Dark III as an eagle's cry.
