Before it was home to a swarm of lich fiends, Balack’s Cove was known for its strange tidal patterns. One moment, the tide is so far out to sea that you can see clams going about their business a mile out, and the next, it rushes back in, swallowing anything caught in the spillover. The source of these tidal quirks is the Riptide Mouse, a mercurial character who is seldom seen, but often felt when its waves wash hapless Hunters up on the sandy shores of the Jungle of Dread.
Mouse ID#: 165

Preferred Cheese

Riptide mice have been found to be attracted to both Vanilla Stilton cheese and Vengeful Vanilla Stilton cheese.

Hunting Strategy

Capturing a Riptide Mouse will cause Hunters to be washed out of Balack's Cove and into the Jungle of Dread.

  • During Low Tide and Medium Tide the Riptide Mouse cannot be encountered.
  • During High Tide the Riptide Mouse is the only mouse that can be encountered with its preferred cheese.

Arming any of the various Anchor Charms will prevent a Hunter from being washed out when capturing a Riptide Mouse.
