Stupid Rat

From Pizza Tower Wiki

Stupid Rats are characters in Pizza Tower.


Stupid Rats are stupid-looking, rotund, giant ceil-colored rats, with eyes looking at different directions. Its small version is the same, except for being square-shaped.

Pin Stupid Rats are similiar, but shaped like bowling pins with two pink stripes. These also have a small variant.


Stupid Rats block the way at certain parts in a level, and can only be defeated using transformations and projectiles (though not all of them work). Despite being more of a level asset, it adds to combos, similarly to enemies. Pin stupid rats can be destroyed with the ball transformation (unlike regular ones). Bumping into a Stupid Rat while grabbing or running will make the player slightly bounce off. All Stupid Rats also make a quiet sniffing sound.

  • Before the Rework Build, Stupid Rat had a different function. It would block the path until the player delivers pizza to a gnome.
    • Stupid Rats replaced all of the transformation specific blocks in the Rework Build.
    • In the Rework build, there were still some Stupid Rats which would function that way. These were removed in the Eggplant Build.
  • There were supposed to be more counterparts corresponding to specific transformations, but they go unused.
  • Bowling Pin Rats are called "obj_rattumble_big" In the files.
  • Before the final game, Stupid Rats did not have a bumping anmation and would act as a solid block instead of making the player bounce off.
  • Stupid Rats have a similar function to Prince Froggy from Wario Land 3.
  • Stupid Rat appears playable in a DOOM mod called "Bring Your Own Class", spitting up projectiles and using various objects like cheese and Rat Balloons to fight demons.
  • When getting caught by Pizzaface as Gustavo & Brick, Brick's defeat animation has Stupid rat's defeat sprite used.
  • Despite Pin Stupid Rats being designed only for ball transformation, they can be killed with a few other transformations such as Mort Transformation, Barrel Transformation (only on contact), and Boxed Transformation.
  • This is the only enemy/level asset to have an official plush on Fangamer.
