* ''Literature/WatershipDown'': Gen. Woundwort, who can fight (and beat) many of the beasts that prey on rabbits. As opposed to Bigwig, who is One {{Badass}} Rabbit. Also of mention would be the Black Rabbit of Inle, the most extreme version of this Trope, being he's basically the Grim Reaper in rabbit-form.

* ''{{Redwall}}'': EULALIA! And that's just the badgers. The other species like hares, mice, otters, squirrels, hedgehogs, and even ''moles'' are also quite capable of fucking up the shit of any vermin that threaten them. (Although a badger isn't exactly in a KillerRabbit scenario when what it's fighting is a rat.)

* The bunnydogs from ''TheWarAgainstTheChtorr'' series by David Gerrold appear to be the only friendly Chtorrans encountered by the humans. Unfortunately they also [[spoiler:represent humanity's future in the Chtorran ecology: as passive, contented creatures who are [[EatTheDog glad to be eaten]] by higher members of the food chain.]] There are also meeps. A mother rabbit will reject her own young to nurse meeps, who will then suckle her to death. One character darkly theorizes that the excessively cute bunnydogs are meant to be the equivalent for humans.

* In Terry Goodkind's ''[[SwordOfTruth Soul of the Fire]]'', an embodiment of evil either possesses or impersonates a chicken. Strangely, the main characters are capable of realizing this... which means you have two badasses who rule the known freaking world and who can alternately make people her slave or destroy armies with a wave of his hand ''scared shitless by a goddamn chicken''.

* The ''{{Sten}}'' series has Doc, an alien who resembles a cuddly koala bear. His species are in fact vicious predators which act cute to lure in prey; Doc is so bloodthirsty that he has to be fitted with a RestrainingBolt in order to interact with his teammates without killing them out of instinct.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Hometown}}'', one of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Heart Eater's]] primary servants is a coydog puppy. It has no more physical strength than any other puppy, but then, considering that it can ForceChoke a full-grown German Shepherd, it doesn't really ''need'' physical strength.

* In "Literature/SixthOfTheDusk", the island Patji features, among other deadly animals, mice with a single venomous tooth which, of course, can kill you. Unusually enough, they've actually been tamed and are one of the few things on the island not especially dangerous.

Martin (of ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' fame) featured creatures called "hellkittens." These were much like the Arduin "killkittens" (see their entry in the TabletopRPG folder). Except rather than secreting their paralytic venom through hollow claws, they ''spat'' it in wads of powerfully acidic saliva.
* Another ''literal'' killer rabbit is the Miraj (also rendered Al-Mi'raj, or various other variations on the two) of Islamic/Arabian poetry and folklore. A yellow rabbit with a single large horn, it can kill and eat things much larger than itself. It appears in early editions of ''DungeonsAndDragons'' -- with a third-party company porting it to 3e -- where some of them have PsychicPowers. It also appears in ''DragonQuest'' where, due to the translators apparently flipping coins, it's sometimes called the "bunnicorn".
* Margaret Atwood's ''OryxAndCrake'' includes wolvogs, creatures that look like friendly dogs, and when they are not ruthlessly killing other creatures, they ''act'' like friendly dogs. They can go from friendly to homicidal, and back, quickly.

* On one of the unknown islands visited by Mael Duin and his companions in the ''Literature/TheVoyageOfMaelDuin'', the voyagers discover a mysterious palace inhabited only by a playful kitten. Everything is fine until one of them tries to take one of the precious necklaces from the piles of treasure lying around; which is when the kitten jumps at him and burns him into a heap of ashes. Then it goes right back to his play.

* Mr. Rabbit from ''Rainbows End'' qualifies as "the next bad thing" in the eyes of one expert character. The previous "bad thing" was a plaque worse than bubonic, and the one before that was the nuclear destruction of Chicago. It's never made clear how much rabbit-nature he actually has.
