Down Under
The rat has a normal hood, Berkshire, or variegated marking, and the same marking matches on their belly.

There should be an even line between the top and bottom color. The white markings should be a pure clean white, and not extend up the past the sides *Past the sides is a Variberk*
Dalmatian
Dalmatian rats may be shown in any recognized color. Markings will be similar to the Variegated mice with color splashes on a white background, free from any solid/clear-cut markings. The splashes should be numerous and ragged in outline, but about equal in size, and well distributed over the entire body.


Hooded
The sides, legs and feet should be a pure clean white, free from spots or brindling. The hood should cover the head, neck and shoulders without a break, showing no white on the throat or chin, and should run in an even line around the body. The spine marking should extend in an unbroken line from the hood to the tail, be of moderate width (approx.1/4 the size of the back), and be free of ragged edges or brindling. The tail should be colored at the base, then white to the end.


Mask
The body is to be a pure, clean white, free from spots or brindling. A colored mask to cover the face, to include just around the eyes and above the nose, not to extend down the sides of the face onto the jowls, under the chin or past the ears.

This is actually mismarked as a Masked rat should not have the color touch all the way to the nose.
Merle
Merle rats may be shown in any recognized color. The unique feature is a pattern of dark splash-spots distributed evenly throughout the entire lighter background color so as to resemble a merle dog. The splash should be numerous and distinct. Splashs will be less prominent on a non-silvered background color. Eye color to correspond to the body color.
