In the Remastered version, the Rat is one of the escaped rats from the spaceship. After eating the Green Cheese of Longevity, the Moon Rat grows into a giant rat. It still tries to pounce on Scrooge, but with some new powers. With the Green Cheese, the Rat can teleport and use enhanced speed to attack Scrooge. After he is defeated, the Rat turns back to its normal size and scurries away, allowing Scrooge to acquire the Green Cheese.
