Mouse Groups are groups of mice which have similar weaknesses or exist in similar locations. No mouse is currently in more than one mouse group, even if that mouse exists in many locations. The mice of each group are listed roughly in order of weakest to strongest.

Please see the Effectiveness page for detailed information on which mice are weak to which trap Power Types, as not all mice in the same group have the exact same weaknesses.

Mouse Groups

Indigenous Mice

Known Weaknesses: Physical, Shadow, Tactical, Arcane, Forgotten, Hydro, Draconic

Indigenous mice live in the core hunting areas, such as Gnawnia, The Harbor and The Mountain. Physical traps work best against indigenous mice, and they prefer normal flavours of cheese, such as cheddar, marble, swiss, brie or SUPERIbrie+.

A list of Indigenous Mice can be found here.

Gauntlet Gladiators

Known Weaknesses: none officially listed

The legion of mice swarming the King's Gauntlet comes from diverse and untold regions, and therefore their individual taste in cheese, and their power type differs as greatly as their lands of origin. Hunters seeking to take their trapping skills to the next level should look for special potion drops from the mice they are currently hunting. Only then will they possess the proper bait (and the proper knowledge of power types) to reach the top.

Forest Guild

Known Weaknesses: Physical, Shadow, Tactical, Arcane, Hydro

Members of the Forest Guild dwell in Whisker Woods, and their traits reflect their green surroundings. Physical and tactical weapons work quite well on members of the Guild, but normal bait may not always work. While weaker Forest Guild members enjoy normal cheese, the powerful Silth mouse will only respond to something. . . extremely gnarly.

The Shadow Clan

Known Weaknesses: Shadow, Arcane, Forgotten

These spoo-oo-ky mice like to shamble around graveyards and catacombs, looking for their favorite snack, Radioactive Blue Cheese. If you've come to the graveyard in search of the infamous Lycan Mouse, however, Moon Cheese might just make it howl.

Digby Dirt Dwellers

Known Weaknesses: Physical, Shadow, Tactical, Arcane

The Digby Dirt Dwellers all share a love of subterranean life, whether they're building tunnels, hanging out in the sediment, or just picking up shiny stones they find on the ground. They are weak against physical traps, and are only attracted to the subtle vibration of Limelight Cheese.

Followers of Furoma

Known Weaknesses: Physical, Tactical

These martial mice are weak to tactical traps. Most of them are attracted to normal cheese, but if Hunters want to navigate the Dojo, there are some things they should remember. Students will leave their training for Maki cheese any day, but Masters are only attracted to specific cheese made from the tokens dropped by students. As for the Master of the Dojo, Hunters should try hard to make his stomach rumble. Still looking for a challenge after defeating the Master? Bait your trap with the rare Onyx Gorgonzola, and you might meet the Sensei himself.

The Forgotten Mice

Known Weaknesses: Shadow, Arcane, Forgotten

Forgotten Mice have served the will of the Acolyte Mouse for untold centuries, working to release him from his prison in the Acolyte Realm. Forgotten minions prefer Radioactive Blue or Ancient Cheese, but the overlords of the Acolyte Realm are only attracted to Runic Cheese.

A list of The Forgotten Mice can be found here.

Aquatic Order

Known Weaknesses: Physical, Tactical, Hydro

The Aquatic Order inhabits the vast blue seas of Rodentia, and a few other related waterways around Gnawnia. Normal cheese will suffice to tempt them out of the deeps, but make sure to equip a Hydro trap, or the Aquatic mouse you're after may well end up being the one that got away.

The Elub Tribe

Known Weaknesses: Hydro

Notable for their blue garments and love of the seashore, the Elub Tribe can only be caught using Hydro traps. Normal cheese does not interest them, so keep plenty of Gouda or SUPERIbrie+ on hand. The village elders are quite elusive, but rumor has it that Shell Cheese can bring them out of hiding.

The Nerg Tribe

Known Weaknesses: Tactical

The Nerg tribe are masters of disguise, and only a tactical trap can penetrate their defenses. The younger tribe members prefer Gouda or SUPERIbrie+, but the elders will only pit themselves against your trap if a piece of Gumbo cheese is on the line.

The Derr Tribe

Known Weaknesses: Physical

The Derr Tribe have managed to survive for centuries in a harsh desert, growing stronger to combat the dry wind and the heat. As a result, only Physical traps can hold them. The tribes-mice of Derr enjoy Gouda or SUPERIbrie+, but Crunchy cheese is required to draw the attention of the tribal elders.

The Dreaded Horde

Known Weaknesses: Shadow

These monstrous mice live deep in the Jungle of dread. Horde members respond only to Havarti, and each mouse prefers a different spice mixed in with their cheese. The Horde may be a picky bunch, but catching them is well worth the effort, for they are the guardians of the parts to an ancient trap capable of catching mice older than Gnawnia itself!

Draconic Brood

Known Weaknesses: Draconic

From the depths of the volcanic rock around Dracano spring the Draconic Brood, a rare and dangerous group of mice who share a love for fire and destruction. A Draconic type trap, equipped with insanely spicy Inferno Havarti Cheese, has the best chance of ending a Draconic mouse's rampage.

Balack's Banished

Known Weaknesses: Shadow, Arcane, Forgotten

These accursed mice have been twisted by the dark enchantment surrounding Balack's Cove. The sweet smell of Vanilla Stilton will draw them in from beyond the grave, but if you seek the Lich Elders, or Balack himself, Vengeful Vanilla Stilton will give your trap extra bite. The Banished can be caught using Shadow, Arcane, or Forgotten traps, but Forgotten traps work best against Balack and his Elder minions.

Event Mice

Known Weaknesses: Physical, Shadow, Tactical, Arcane, Forgotten, Hydro, Draconic

These mice are released occasionally during various parts of the year. Each is fairly unique, often requiring a specific hunting strategy.
