Undead Rats are most often encountered in dark sewer-like areas.
- One Small Undead Rat is found in the aqueduct that serves as the path between Firelink Shrine and Undead Burg.
- Three Small Undead Rats are found in the Undead Parish, below the Hellkite Dragon.
- Numerous rats, both small and large, are found in the Depths.
Small Undead Rats are shy creatures and often run away from the player. Once cornered or pursued, they will attack viciously. Their bites cause very heavy Poison buildup and once contracted, is some of the most potent Poison encountered, at 9 damage per second.
Large Undead Rats are both stronger and more aggressive than their smaller counterparts; however, they inflict minute Poison build up, only causing 4 damage per second once contracted.
Both variants attack in rapid succession, potentially stun-locking players regardless of poise.
Killing Undead Rats is a good way to farm Humanity at an early stage in the game.
