This sinister elf makes not toys for fun and entertainment, but rather constructs toys for destruction and chaos! The Mad Elf Mouse has long lost his sanity and now uses his toy assembly knowledge for evil by creating horrible abominations bent on destroying hunters and ultimately the Kingdom of Gnawnia!

To ensure his victory, the Mad Elf Mouse has created a protective field to disable all equipment other than his own toy technology, including a hunter's trap. Only a trap made of toy parts will be able to maintain power and potentially capture him.
Mouse ID#:

The Mad Elf Mouse is a breed of mouse that can only be found during winter Events. During the Great Winter Hunt 2011, it was found in the Snow Fortress, and dropped 50 Ice Coins. During the Great Winter Hunt 2012, it could be found in the MegaBuy Mart only after obtaining Letter to Santa, Age 11, and dropped Gnawnia Winter Gift, Ice Coin, and Scarf Parts.

Preferred Cheese

Mad Elf Mouse have been found especially attracted to Festive Feta cheese, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice. Additionally, during the Great Winter Hunt 2012, it was only attracted if a Winter Charm was armed.

Hunting Strategy

During the Great Winter Hunt 2011, Mad Elf Mouse could be attracted only after using Festive Feta cheese to capture 30 other mice in the Keep area within the Snow Fortress.

The weaknesses of Mad Elf Mouse differ from the other mice in the Event Mice group. Nutcracker Nuisance Trap is the only effective weapon against Mad Elf Mouse in the Snow Fortress. In the Great Winter Hunt 2012, the Mad Elf became susceptible to all Arcane weapons, as well as Physical weapons, but other weapon types remained ineffective. In the Great Winter Hunt 2013, the Mad Elf also became susceptible to Law weapons.
