Rabbit, from Ultima VII manual
First appearance: Ultima VI
Last appearance: Serpent Isle

Rabbits are peaceful animals, and usually not a threat to people. They are, however, a serious threat to the carrots which farmers grow in their fields.

They can be found in the wilderness.

Lore[edit]

Though quite shy and non-threatening, these long-eared creatures are the bane of farmers, whose crops attract them in hordes.
This fast, long-eared animal lives primarily on the carrots grown by local farmers.
Another scavenging rodent, the rabbit is quite fond of the carrots found on many farms.

Notable examples[edit]

Sutek's Killer Bunnies
  • Sutek the mage did numerous experiments on animals on Terfin in Ultima VI. One of the results are the "killer bunnies," a horde of rabbits, who are extremely aggressive and attack the party on sight. This may be a reference to the killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, considering past Monty Python nods in the series.
  • Buggs: a rabbit-shaped animal appearing in the menagerie of the insane Lorthondo the magician
