- Internal NPC ID: 656
- The Bestiary entry for the Town Bunny: "Guaranteed to keep the vegetable supplies in check. Might possibly become a hat."
The Bunny is a Town pet. It arrives at dawn (4:30 AM) the day after the player uses the Bunny License, which is purchased from the Zoologist for
50000*5. The Bunny's only use is to be petted, or to activate Pylons without 2 houses.
There are 6 breeds of bunnies, with one randomly being chosen when it arrives. If the bunny is killed it will respawn within 1–3 days. Like the Angler, the bunny's message upon reaching zero health is "<Bunny's name> has left!". It will also respawn with a different bunny skin, making it useful if you want a specific type of bunny.
The only requirements for the Bunny to spawn is the use of a Bunny License and the presence of a valid House. The Bunny's house can be changed, as with any other NPC, and it can share the same house as another NPC.

Since written English lacks popular onomatopoeias for bunny noises (unlike "Meow" or "Woof" for the other pets), the in-game text uses the following quotes instead:
- "*Rabbit noises*"
- "*Bunny noises*"
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite the Flemish breed of rabbit being one of the giant breeds, the sprite is the same size as the others.
