It spawns only with commands or spawns randomly in specific outdated screenshots.

If the mode is set to peaceful, the Killer Bunny will not despawn and won't attack players, though it will still attack wolves and tamed dogs. You can actually breed a Killer Bunny with other rabbits with a chance of the offspring being a Killer Bunny.


If the player is within a 16-block radius, the Killer Bunny will immediately attack and will hop fast towards the player. It usually hops faster than a normal Rabbit and moves in a similar style as the spider. Once near to the player, it lunges and deals a fair amount of damage. Killer Bunnies are immune to the Thorns Enchantment.

It will not only attack the players, but also wolves including those that are tamed. The attacked wolf in return will attack the Killer Bunny, resulting in a fight.

When the player successfully strikes the Killer Bunny, it will hop away for a moment before coming back to attack the player again.
