Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' will rarely have a jackalope show up in the wilderness; not capturable, no less difficult to hit than regular rabbits, but with the added bonus of skinning it for extra antlers and an achievement.

* ''TableTopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' has the [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/skwunk.htm Sqwunk]], based on the Squonk, a useless byproduct of monster creation. Incredibly ugly, it weeps openly if its face is seen and dissolved into tears if it sees itself in a mirror.

* Several of Creator/ManlyWadeWellman's Literature/SilverJohn stories; particularly "The Desrick on Yandro", which features several varieties of Critter. John himself is the only man ever to have seen the Behinder and lived (it was concentrating on being behind someone else at the time); he declines to describe it, saying only that he'd have been happier not to have had to look at it.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'': In ''The Titan's Curse'', Artemis offhandedly mentions turning a boy into a jackalope [[DisproportionateRetribution for having stumbled upon her Hunt]] (and considering what happened in the original myths to people that did this, that's getting off light).
