I assume yes but just making sure:
Malodor certainly looks like a Rat; does he count as a Rat for the purpose of Filch's Pilfer ability?

I don't have the book here so I can't check atm, but I would say no.

Pilfer doesn't work on Vurst, so it likely shouldn't work on Malador either.

Oh.. Huh. It looks like this is a rule I missed as well, but now I see it in the base rulebook explicitly.

For example, Captain Vurst is unaffected by any rules or powers that only affect rats.


With something that explicit, I guess it answers my question that no, Malodor is not a "rat", mechanically speaking.

I haven't faced off against Malodor with Filch yet, but I have a replay of a failed Chapter 3 coming up and I was thinking of changing the team around, so it could become relevant.

I seem to remember that somewhere in the rules or faq it says that rules pertaining to minions do not affect boss versions of those minions.
