Not to be confused with Rat, a similiar critter which spawns in Graveyard biome.

The Mouse is a critter and cannot harm players. However, unlike most critters, they cannot be harmed by monsters. Mice have only 5 health. They spawn in Underground and Cavern layers. Their small size and speed can make them difficult to spot even in well-lit conditions, although they occasionally squeak. Unlike most other critters, NPCs will prevent mice from spawning.

Rarely, a Gold Mouse may spawn instead of a normal one. Mice can be captured with any Bug Net.
