Another of Malik's twisted experiments, the giant rats were a offshoot of the doctor's use of the growth serum on the local vermin found on his island hideout. The creatures acted as guard dogs for the doctor's hideout, fending off anyone who should trespass close enough to their location. The malice of the beasts is put to the test, though, when the crew of the Alpha accidentally stumbles upon their cave while making their way toward Malik's fortress. The crew quickly rushes outside, while the rats give chase. Caught between the creatures and a pool of acid, McKenzie and his crew are forced to unleash their flamethrowers on one of the nearby rats, incinerating it, before being able to fly off to safety.
