Rat enemy line

Jump to: navigation, search
A Rat as they appear in Dark Dawn.

The Rat, Armored Rat, and Plated Rat are enemies that are randomly fought throughout each game in the Golden Sun series. Like most enemy lines, they are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the games. In the Game Boy Advance games, they resemble small, back-plated rodents, but appear larger in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn and have maces on their tails.

Rat[edit]

Rat.png

A Rat (よろいねずみ Armor Mouse) is an orange variant with green plating, and it is level 6 in Golden Sun and level 9 in The Lost Age. In Golden Sun, they are located in the overworld region of Angara encompassing the towns Bilibin and Kolima, as well as throughout Kolima Forest and Tret Tree. In The Lost Age, it is fought in the southern portion of Indra in the overworld.

As should be evident, the Rat is about potentially taking several extra hits to fell in comparison to the other monsters it is fought alongside, at least in the area it first appears in the first game. Its Defense rating is always the highest wherever it appears, making physical strikes from low-level parties seem rather ineffective. This hardly contributes to its very weak capacity for inflicting damage, since offensive Psynergy bypasses its defense easily, and in later areas it is fought you should be concentrating on far more relevantly strong enemies like the Troll.

Armored Rat[edit]

Armored Rat.png

An Armored Rat (アーマーラット Armor Rat) is a green level 18 variant with pink plating. In Golden Sun, they are fought in the overworld region surrounding the city of Tolbi, as well as throughout nearby Altmiller Cave.

In the overworld area where it is fightable, it has the best defensive capacity as expected, but is similar to the Rat in that its focus on defending prevents it from actually doing any damage a lot of times, so it merely becomes a target. In Altmiller Cave, it is exceeded in all statistics by the Clay Gargoyle.

Plated Rat[edit]

Plated Rat.png

A Plated Rat (シェルラット Shell Rat) is a purple level 25 member with yellow plating. In Golden Sun, they are located in the road to Babi Lighthouse and the subsequent Tunnel Ruins.

The Plated Rat having a somewhat more proper blend of strong defense and occasionally strong offense does not raise its threat level enough that it is not completely outperformed by the Ice Gargoyle, the random monster with the single highest Defense in the first game. It should be relatively easy to defeat this with area-of-effect Psynergy targeting other monsters.
