An unstoppable force poured into an immovable set of armour. This mouse acts as a wall to stop adventures from progressing any further up the infinite floors of the Rift Gauntlet Tower. With one mighty blow of his shield, this mouse will send you tumbling 10 steps back down the tower.

When you come to this mouse and you can't go through it and you can't knock it down, you know what you found...

The Bulwark! (WHAT?) The Bulwark! The Bulwark!

Mouse ID#: 1000

Cheese Preference


The Bulwark of Ascent mice have been found to be especially attracted to String Cheese, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice.

Hunting Strategy

Only Rift traps are effective against the Bulwark of Ascent, all other power types are ineffective. Bulwark of Ascent can only be encountered in Valour Rift after entering the Tower with the Ultimate Umbra Augmentation active. Failing to catch Bulwark of Ascent pushes you back 10 steps in the Valour Rift Tower, but cannot push you lower than your current floor.

History and Trivia

  • 08 October 2019: Bulwark of Ascent was introduced with the release of the Valour Rift.
  • The "runes" on the Bulwark of Ascent's shield are the same kind found on the back page of Plankrun's Whisker Woods Rift Notes, and can be deciphered to read "YOU SHALL NOT PASS" when read bottom to top and then right to left, with both sides of the shield having the same text. Likewise, the "runes" on its shoulder read "FALL".
