Gaming mice aren’t the most colorful peripherals out there. You get the odd white mouse here and there, but it’s generally a market dominated by tried-and-true gamer blacks. But the rise of a much more diverse audience means the need for varied color options. And so it’s time for the pink gaming mouse to get its turn in the spotlight.

Make no mistake, pink mice still aren’t that common, especially at the high end. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to settle for a cheap, no-name product; Logitech, Razer, and Xtrfy all have pink options that will both look great and perform excellently. So whether you need something for high-end competitive play or just want something that looks great with your gaming setup, our list should have something for you.

The Best Pink Gaming Mice

A quick word about mouse measurements before getting into our mice picks. We’ve tried to list grip widths wherever possible, but some manufacturers don’t provide that information. Instead, they measure the width from the rear, which is often wider than the grip width. We’ve marked out rear mouse widths with an asterisk (*) in the spec tables.

1. Logitech G Pro X Superlight

Best Pink Gaming Mouse

Weight63 grams (2.22 oz)
Dimensions (L x W x H)4.92 x 2.32 x 1.57 inches
SensorHero 25K
DPI Range100 - 25,600
Battery Life70 hours

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight has long been one of the best wireless gaming mice available, especially for those who prefer lightweight gaming mice. It was only available in black and white until very recently when Logitech introduced this eye-catching magenta color option.

To be clear, this isn’t your average light pink paint job. The new G Pro X Superlight is a rich, dark pink that stands out on any desk surface. It looks great in person, and I should know; I bought one the moment it became available in my region!

The G Pro X Superlight uses Logitech’s top-grade HERO 25K sensor in an impressively light 63-gram (2.22-ounce) solid body. No honeycomb cut-outs here, thank you very much. What’s more impressive is that Logitech managed to squeeze in a 70-hour battery life in the G Pro X Superlight.

The G Pro X Superlight sports an ambidextrous shape, albeit with right-hand-only thumb buttons. Presumably, dual-sided thumb buttons are one of Logitech’s sacrifices to cut down on the Superlight’s weight. Other sacrifices include the lack of a DPI switching button, so you’re stuck with a single setting (which you can set in Logitech’s G Hub software).

The latter might seem like a drawback if you’re used to them, but I found that I didn’t miss a DPI switch button after a few weeks with the Superlight. Your mileage may vary, though, and it’s worth trying to go without the button first before you commit to the G Pro X Superlight.

In my opinion, the magenta Logitech G Pro X Superlight is the best pink gaming mouse on the market right now. It’s pricey and lacks a charging dock or USB-C connection, but the core experience is as close to perfect as you’re going to get with a pink mouse.

2. Razer Viper Ultimate

Best Pink Gaming Mouse Runner-Up

Weight74 grams (2.61 oz)
Dimensions (L x W x H)4.99 x 2.27 x 1.49 inches
SensorRazer Focus+
DPI Range400 - 20,000
Battery Life70 hours

Razer’s Viper Ultimate is another great high-end wireless pink gaming mouse. However, unlike the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, this pink Razer mouse has a more subdued color that should work better with other pink peripherals.

The Razer Viper Ultimate is a top-spec wireless mouse in every sense of the word. It has a high-quality Razer Focus+ sensor (every bit the Logitech HERO sensor’s equal), a 2.4 GHz wireless connection, and Razer’s durable in-house optical switches.

Razer equipped the Viper Ultimate with thumb buttons on both sides, making this one of the few truly ambidextrous premium gaming mice. The extra buttons probably play a part in making the Viper Ultimate heavier than the Logitech G Pro X at 74 grams (2.61 ounces), but that’s not a huge disadvantage. We think most users won’t feel the difference during daily use.

The shape might be a bit more of an issue, though. Despite both being symmetrical mice, I found the G Pro X Superlight much more comfortable than the Razer Viper Ultimate. Based on discussions I’ve had, it seems like the Logitech has a slightly “safer” shape that appeals to more people. So the extra $10 you pay for the Logitech might be worth it for a more agreeable body.

It’ll all boil down to the shape, as the two mice are generally on par with each other. You can’t go wrong with either, and it’s just a matter of which fits your hand better. For what it’s worth, you also get a matching (and cute) charging dock with the Viper Ultimate. It’s a nice value-add that might sway you in the Viper Ultimate’s favor.

Despite my issues with the shape, I still think that the Viper Ultimate is an excellent mouse. And best of all, the cheaper wired Razer Viper also comes in pink. It’s our pick for the best wired pink gaming mouse.

3. Xtrfy M42 RGB

Best Small Pink Gaming Mouse

Weight59 grams (2.08 oz)
Dimensions (L x W x H)4.64 x 2.20 x 1.49 inches
SensorPixart PMW3389
DPI Range400 - 16,000

Both the Logitech G Pro X Superlight and Razer Viper Ultimate are excellent mice, but both cost a pretty penny. They’re also slightly on the large side (as far as medium-sized mice go), which isn’t ideal if you prefer smaller mice.

The Xtrfy M42 RGB solves both problems in one fell swoop with its smaller, lighter body and sub-$70 price point. Well, as long as you’re OK with its shockingly pink color, that is. Thought the magenta Logitech G Pro X Superlight was bright? You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Thankfully, the pink Xtry M42 RGB has the specs to back up its lurid pink. The M42 packs a top-grade Pixart PMW3389 sensor, a matching paracord cable, and a safe symmetrical design. All the good things we’d expect from a modern gaming mouse are present and accounted for here.

But the Xtrfy M42 RGB has one feature that sets it apart from the pack: a detachable back. The Xtrfy M42 comes with two backs, each slightly differently shaped. Try both out to see which fits your grip style best.

If neither of the default backs works for you, you can download and customize the 3D files off the Xtrfy website and 3D print your own mouse back. It’s a bit of a niche feature, for sure. But if you’re very picky about your mouse shape, the M42 RGB’s interchangeable back might make it the perfect mouse for you.

The Xtrfy M42 RGB is the best pink gaming mouse if you have small hands. But it’s a great mouse overall, too; the great price, excellent specs, and modular back make it worth checking out even if you usually prefer larger mice.

4. ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin

Best Ergonomic Pink Gaming Mouse

Weight110 grams (3.88 oz)
Dimensions (L x W x H)4.96 x 2.64* x 1.77 inches
SensorPixart PMW3360
DPI Range100 - 12,000

Most of the mice on our list are symmetrical or ambidextrous, which leaves out those of you who prefer a sculpted, right-handed shape. Worry not, though, as there’s a solid ambidextrous pink gaming mouse for you in the ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin.

Let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way first: yes, it’s a heavy mouse. At 110 grams or 3.88 ounces, the Gladius II Origin is nearly double the weight of our top pick, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. There’s nothing objectively wrong with that, but we don’t think it’s ideal in a world where ultralight ergonomic mice like the Glorious Model D exist.

Of course, the Model D isn’t available in pink, so that old-school 3.88-ounce weight is just something you’ll have to live with. Great features such as the top-tier PMW3360 optical sensor and detachable braided cable will definitely help with that.

The ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin does have an interesting trick up its sleeve, though. The Gladius II Origin’s left- and right-click switches use a push-fit system that lets you easily swap the switches depending on your preference.

It’s essentially hot-swapping for mouse switches, a great little feature that we wouldn’t mind seeing on more mice. Niche? Sure. Great to have? Certainly. The ROG Gladius II Origin comes equipped with Omron D2FC-F-K switches, and ASUS includes a couple of Japanese-made Omron D2F-01F switches in the package.

Overall, ASUS’ ROG Gladius II Origin is a solid ergonomic pink gaming mouse with no serious flaws. The weight holds it back from being a top-tier mouse in our book, but those who prioritize an ergonomic shape above all else likely won’t care.

5. Cougar Minos XT RGB

Best Budget Pink Gaming Mouse

Weight96 grams (3.38 oz)
Dimensions (L x W x H)4.92 x 2.67* x 1.49 inches
SensorPixArt ADNS-3050
DPI Range100 - 4000

Cougar’s Minos XT RGB isn’t a high-end mouse, no matter how you slice it. But that’s not why it’s here, and buyers on a tight budget will appreciate the Minos XT’s sub-$30 price. You make many sacrifices, but it might be worth it if you’re on a tight budget.

A quick look at the specs table should explain why the Minos XT’s priced the way it is. The ADNS-3050 is an entry-level sensor that can’t compete in precision and quality with PixArt’s high-end optical sensors.

Aside from the basic sensor, the Minos XT RGB is also relatively heavy and, unlike the ASUS mouse above, doesn’t offer any high-quality features to make up for it. The white cable is old-fashioned and stiff, far from the flexible sleeved and paracord options common nowadays. You’ll likely want a mouse bungee to avoid cable drag when using the Minos XT.

There’s also the question of durability. Cougar only rates the left- and right-click switches for 20 million clicks, much lower than the 50 to 70 million that most other top-grade mice claim. 20 million sounds like a lot, sure, but that’s a good indicator that the switches are lower quality and will likely fail much sooner than those on pricier mice.

But while those are all obvious drawbacks, you have to look at them through the lens of the Minos XT’s affordable price. So, even if it’s not a mouse we’d recommend to the general buyer, the Cougar Minos XT RGB fills the budget pink mouse niche admirably enough.

A Word About Budget Pink Mice

Before we move on, it’s worth pointing out that we’re aware of the dozens of cheap pink gaming mice available on Amazon. If you just need any old pink mouse for browsing the internet, then most of them will be fine. But you may want to do a bit more research before buying one to game with.

Once you start shopping at this price point, issues with click and sensor latency, mouse feet, and build quality become more evident. So while you can get a good deal on a cheap pink mouse, you could also end up with something truly unpleasant if you’re unlucky.

A Couple of Oldies

While we think that these five mice are the best pink gaming mice for most users right now, they aren’t the only options available. Razer has a couple of other, older, pink gaming mice you may want to seek out.

However, there’s one main issue with both: they’re old and relatively rare. The rarity makes for increased prices on new units, making them not worth the cost. So, for most users, used or refurbished units are the only way to get either for a reasonable price. But we’re aware that not everyone is keen on that, so we opted to leave them out of the main list and discuss them here instead.

First up is the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition. It’s a symmetrical, nine-button mouse with Razer’s much older “True 5G” optical sensor. As you might expect from an older mouse, it’s heavy at 111 grams (3.91 ounces) and sports an old-school stiff rubber cable.

That’d be fine if new units weren’t selling for more than $150 from the official Razer store on Amazon. At those sorts of prices, you’re better off buying a Viper or a G Pro X.

The Lancehead TE is an OK option if you’re buying used, though. There are a couple of used units available at around the $70 mark as we write this. We wouldn’t call that a great deal, but it’s definitely justifiable.

The other pink Razer mouse is the Razer Basilisk. It’s an ergonomic eight-button mouse with support for Razer Hypershift. Hypershift gives you another layer of button mappings, similar to how a Function key works on a mechanical keyboard. It also has customizable scroll wheel resistance, a nice touch that you don’t often see on newer mice.

It’s about the same weight as the Lancehead TE at 107 grams (3.77 ounces) and has the same older sensor and Razer mechanical switches as its stablemate. It’s a decent mouse, but the newer Basilisk v3 is much better. The catch, of course, is that the v3 isn’t available in pink.

The pink Basilisk has been selling above $200 on Amazon since January 2021. That’s way too much for a mouse, even if it is pink. However, you can buy refurbished units from Newegg for around $50 at the time of writing. That’s a solid deal, provided you’re ok with a refurb mouse.

Both the Lancehead Tournament Edition and Basilisk were great mice back in their day and are still usable today. But new-in-box units just aren’t worth the money they’re going for right now. So go used, or just go with the options in our main list.

If you’re willing to buy used, we should note that pink versions of the Glorious Model O and O- exist. They’re no longer available new, so your best bet is the used market. eBay usually has quite a few for sale, albeit with the predictable reseller markup.

Closing Thoughts

It’d be easy to mistake a pink gaming mouse for one that offers more style than substance. But that’s thankfully not the case, as our top mice picks should have shown. If you’re a hardcore gamer looking for a pink gaming mouse to match your peripherals or decor, then the Logitech G Pro X Superlight and Razer Viper Ultimate are the mice you should look at first.

If you’re not willing to spend that much, the wired Razer Viper or Xtrfy M42 RGB are great options too. But before you rush off to buy a mouse, don’t forget to measure your hand size to figure out what size mouse is perfect for you. Once you figure that out, finding a suitable mouse should be a relative breeze. Happy fragging!
