|This mouse cares not for cheese. To say the Eclipse Mouse commands the forces of darkness would be to underestimate its power, for it commands the very fear of darkness, liquifying hunters’ souls with a constant barrage of nightmares. It also turns traps against their owners, sending knives, lasers and even giant squid sailing through the air after opponents. It has only been trapped once before, and after it reached the King’s gauntlet, the hunter disappeared. Good luck.|

Eclipse mice have been found to be especially attracted to Gauntlet Cheese Tier 8, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice.
Eclipse mice are quite weak to Forgotten type traps. They may also be caught with high power traps of other power types but due to the high value of the cheese, hunters are advised to use the most effective powertype.
