Lore[edit | edit source]

From Hearthpwn:

It’s not his fault… Someone keeps stealing his soap!
Our card reveal for Mean Streets of Gadgetzan is the dirtiest, blingest, smartest, and unfortunately shortest Kobold in Gadgetzan. Don't let his short stature fool you though, he packs a powerful, gem-filled punch.
What are Kobolds?
  • You no take candle! Kobolds have an unhealthy obsession with candles due to their poor nocturnal sight, although our friend seems to be missing his.
  • Kobolds enjoy seclusion from the other races of Azeroth. Caves, Mines, and Quarries are some of their favourite spots.
  • Aieee me run! Kobolds are cowards and they're dumb enough to start fights with others that they can't win. Dirty Rat certainly didn't make his way up the chain being cowardly though!
  • Fists and small weapons are the primary combat methods used by Kobolds. Those gold knuckles on Dirty Rat must have cost a fortune, but damn he blingin'.[1]

Kobolds are a race of diminutive, rat-like subterranean humanoids who dwell in and around caverns and mines throughout the Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor and the Broken Isles. They are not particularly intelligent and are notoriously cowardly, preferring to keep their distance from other, larger races. Kobolds are famous for being obsessively protective of the candles they wear upon their heads and which help them light their way through the dark tunnels they call home.
A race of arctic kobolds known as snobolds make their home in the frozen wastes of Northrend.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Former Senior Vice President of Story & Franchise Development Chris Metzen came up with the name and "flavor behind the card" for Dirty Rat, as one of his last collaborations with the Hearthstone team before retiring in 2016.[1][2][3]
  • Dirty Rat is the first collectible kobold minion to not possess Spell Damage.
  • This minion is wielding  Brass Knuckles on its left hand.
