Skill+1, Ddg+10. Can't inflict criticals or trigger offensive skills.



First game

Fire Emblem Fates

Rat Spirit (Japanese: 鼠神・子 Rat God - Ne) is a scroll introduced in Fire Emblem Fates, and is the first of the scroll hierarchy of Hoshido. It serves as the most basic, weakest, and lowest-rank scroll in the game, obviously lower in the hierarchy than even the Ox Spirit. Although it has low power, it is the easiest scroll to wield as a result of its low weapon level, and it is very cheap.

Other appearances

Fire Emblem Cipher

Rat Spirit is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B02-034N Mischievous Diviner, Orochi. It is a manual-activation skill which, for a cost of flipping 2 bond cards, allows Orochi to expend her turn in exchange for drawing one card from the deck and adding it to the player's hand.
