Ugliest mouse?

I have seen quite a lot of ugly mice over the years. Sometimes function over form is taken too literally. What is the ugliest mouse you have come across?

I actually owned this mouse 10 years ago, when it was owned by Saitek. This mouse was ugly for a reason, but ugly nonetheless.

Actually I like the adjustability of the RAT mice.. never owned one tough.

I dislike the appearance of Sharkoons mice, as the LEDs can’t be turned off :(

Nah. I would say that the RAT mouse is an acquired taste, but I would not call it butt ugly. Its aesthetic might right in into some theme. But what the Elle is the scale on the top for, if there is no pointer to it?

Would ugly mice that were made to look like something else apply?
I have seen lots of novelty mice: mice with ears and tail, female torso with boobs, airplane, cars, dogs, cats, pigs, bugs, hamburger, etc. not to mention various artists' one-offs, some of which are disgusting.

James Donkey mice. It sucks too because the modularity of them is super cool, I want to like them and support indie input device folks, the mice just have that over-the top angle-y Gamer(tm) look.

They're having a sale on now though... Dang the $10 one... Why's it gotta be yellow

That RAT mouse was 10 yrs ago?! Damn! I had that (wired and wireless) and love it. Very functional and comfortable. All that gimmicky stuff (thumb scroll, thumb rest and button, adjustable weight and palm) was actually very useful as far as I remember. Though the look is something you need to overcome; too gamer-y but guess if they toned that a bit the overall funtionality of it might be negatively affected.

It used to be made by Saitek.

I never claimed it was a bad mouse. I loved it. But I thought all the features and adjustability made it look hideous, but obviously, 'ugly' is subjective :)

In my opinion, here is another that is hideous

The Magic Eagle looks like someone's rage quit and beat the mouse to death with a hammer.
