Grabrats can be found in the later areas of the Steamport City. A Grabrat does not actually deal damage with its attacks, but instead "grabs" onto its foe, preventing them from doing specials. All player classes can attack with the Grabrat "grabbing" them. According to Cypress, even if it shows a clear resemblance to rats, it shares no biological characteristics with them.
Tips & AttacksEdit
When grabbed by a Grabrat, it will grab on to you, draining your skill gauge so you can't jump or escape. One should repeatedly jump to shake it off, making it stunned and an easy target to your attacks. They are most dangerous in timed missions, or near a ranged enemy such as a Pustosser, especially as escape is impeded by lack of specials. Grabrats can also slow down a crag's speed.
Use your steam shot and chip away at it from a distance.
Hit it once, Backdash twice and move back in to hit it again.
Alternative: Jump close enough to it so that it leaps directly at you, then tumble away. If you time the tumble right you should hit it and avoid it grabbing on to you, though if your timing is off then you will only get one of the two results. If you avoided its grasp, it should land on the ground and will not attack for a few seconds. Use this time to kill it. Or, if it does grab onto you, jump (more like a hop while it is on you) a few times (about four) and it will fall off and lie stunned, allowing you to attack it (it helps to hit it once while it is jumping at you).
Move within a short distance away from the resting Grabrat, then jump, attack and retreat quickly, then hit it again quickly while it prepares for another leap.

- This aggressive Mimic patiently waits for an intruder to get near. It then lunges at its prey, holding them down as it attacks.
