Tail Whip (Ex): A Raticate may feint, or use any other use of the Bluff skill that would normally require a standard action, with a move action.
Sneak Attack (Ex): A Raticate adds a number of d6s of damage against any foe that cannot properly defend itself equal to its level divided by three. This is exactly as the Sneak Attack ability of a rogue with 2 levels for every three full hit dice that the Raticate possesses.
Hyper Fang (Su): A Raticate's bite threatens a critical on a 19-20 and inflicts x3 damage when it criticals successfully. Raticate's bite can benefit from both Improved Critical and Keen, almost as if there were some ancient power enforcing rules long forgotten.
Skills: A Raticate receives a +4 racial bonus to Hide and Move Silently checks and a +16 racial bonus on Balance checks. It uses its Dexterity modifier for Climb checks.
