* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' depicts moon rabbits as a LittleBitBeastly race of servitors to the {{Lunarian|s}} people. Most of them are slackers with no love for any Lunarian but [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chang%27e Chang'e]], and their [[TelepathicSpacemen minor telepathic abilities]] make them notorious for GossipEvolution (they not only believe that Earthlings are aware of the [[FantasticNatureReserve Lunar Capital]]'s existence, but that hundreds of rabbits have died fighting off Earth invaders). The most prominent moon rabbit in the series is Reisen, a runaway from the Lunar Defense Corps who has since [[GoingNative tried to integrate herself into]] Earth's {{youkai}} rabbit population.

* The [[http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/arcana/665 Soratami]] from the MagicTheGathering ''Kamigawa'' block; they aren't as obviously rabbitish as some of the examples, but you can definitely see it in the ears. Plus, they were directly inspired by the Japanese rabbit/moon legend.

* Unsurprisingly due to its penchant for Asian myth, the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series contains moon rabbits. Also unsurprisingly due to its penchant for {{Cute Monster Girl}}s, the moon rabbits are bunny girls. The most famous of them is Reisen Udongein Inaba. Ironically, she's being made the ButtMonkey by an Earth Rabbit named Tewi. The elixir of life, known as the Hourai Elixir, is the reason that Kaguya and Mokou are immortal.
** And there is a rather large group of Moon Rabbits dedicated to mostly pounding mochi in the moon; some serve in the Lunar Defense Corps. They're a bunch of slackers, and not even [[GodModeSue the Watatsuki sisters]]' TrainingFromHell is enough to whip them into shape. A single one tried to flee the moon to escape her mochi-pounding duties and actually reached Gensokyo, but was quickly sent back by Eirin, adopted by the Watatsukis and turned into their ButtMonkey ''du jour''.
** ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'' introduces two more moon rabbits, Seiran and Ringo, who serve as the first and second stage bosses of that game.
