Monster Rat is a monstrous counterpart of the regular RAT and an antagonist in Five Nights at Candy's 3.

Appearance

A line of stitches can be seen on his forehead and two going down from the waist. Parts of his body and his limbs also sport metal pieces resembling iron nails.

He sport few stereotypical rat-like features including both fixed round ears, long whiskers, and a long pink tail filled with metal pieces. His hand possess long pointy claws. Each feet sport three large, sharp scythes for toes. His wide smile seems to sport with razor-sharp fangs and two-front teeth. His staring eyes look glossy black with piercing red iris and visible pupils. His nose also sport nostrils, unlike his original counterpart.

There are no sign of visible endoskeleton parts, but there are metallic parts can be seen from his knees, elbows, shoulders, and a neck.

Monster Rat starts outside the Bedroom. If the player hears thumping, and sometimes knocking, it means he is either hiding at the door, in the wardrobe, or in the closet. The player must shine their flashlight at these locations to force him back.

If the player does not force him back in time, he will enter the room. He will stand in one of 3 locations in the room, and purple-blood like effect will appear around player's view. The player must shine their flashlight at his eyes. This is easier said than its done, as Monster Rat will try to dodge his head around to avoid the flashlight beam. After about 15 seconds of this, the flashlight will flicker, and Monster Rat will go underneath the bed or if the player shines it on his face enough Monster Rat will leave the room instead.

When Monster Rat is under the bed, the player must look underneath the bed to figure out which side of the bed he is hiding under. If he is on the left, for example, the player must quickly stop looking under the bed and look to the right side of the bedroom. When they hear the sound cue, they must shine the flashlight in the eyes of Monster Rat. Doing this will play an animation of Monster Rat leaving the room, and the cycle repeats.

Monster Rat will jumpscare the player, resulting in a game over, in any of these situations:

  • The player fails to shine the flashlight in his eyes enough.
  • The player fails to force him to peek out from underneath the bed.
  • The player looks under the bed for too long while Monster Rat is hiding under it.
  • The player fails to shine the flashlight at Monster Rat's eyes when he pokes out from under the bed.

Tape Recorder

If the music from Recorder is playing, and Monster Rat hides under the bed, there is a chance that he will mess up with the recorder, playing unique animation while looking on it. Once done, Recorder will emit loud, annoying tape-glitching sound. This can be dangerous as it can make the sound cue made by Monster Rat while peeking out of the bed unhearable. Stoping the music or Rewinding the tape will fix the Recorder.

Trivia

  • The name "Nightmare Rat" was at first confirmed by Emil Macko in this post on Gamejolt page.
    • Emil Macko said that he called the animatronic this way, because "nightmare" describes it pretty well, though it does not look like "typical nightmare animatronic" from FNaF4.
      • However, on Reddit, Emil have said he changed to names of Nightmare Rat and Nightmare Cat to Monster Rat and Monster Cat for two reasons: One - they are not meant to be animatronics. Two - they're meant to be living creatures.
        • Starting from 2016-11-25, Nightmare Rat's name has officially be changed into "Monster Rat".
  • Monster Rat is seen in his first, unwithered/non-monstrous version on a picture with a boy, in the trailer of Five Nights at Candy's 3.
  • Monster Rat can be considered an opposite to his animatronic counterpart, since in the previous installments, Rat was always the last to become active.
  • Just like the Five Nights at Candy's teaser image of Rat, one can see what appears to be Vinnie above Monster Rat at the end of the Demo.
    • This may be the reference to how the Puppeteer from Rat's & Cat's Theater accidently murdered employee in the Rat's suit.
  • Much like Candy in Five Nights at Candy's, Monster Rat has 3 jumpscares.
    • This can be a reference on how Monster Rat is main antagonist of the game, same as the Candy in first one.
    • He also have 3 different jumpscare sounds, that correspond to different jumpscares.
  • Scott Cawthon, the creator of the FNaF series, found Monster Rat to be scary as well as praising for his design.
