Rufus is a Fiddler Crab. He does heavy damage to aliens that you lure to the ground. He is unlocked on Level 2-3.
When you lure an enemy to the bottom of the tank, Rufus will proceed to swipe at it with his claws, doing heavy damage. He is very good against Destructor and Ulysses, as he attacks them immediately. He is one of the 4 alien killing pets, the others being Itchy, Gash, and Stanley.
"RUFUS started his career as a dance instructor, teaching people how to do his patented pop and lock arm routine. When his dance studion burned down in a freak accident, RUFUS became a mercenary for hire, using his dance skill to amplify his already potent fighting ability."
Rufus is relatively useful against ground aliens, but there are better pets. If you want a pet to better fight aliens, pick Gash. Otherwise, there are plenty of other pets to choose from.
