* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: In "8-Ball Bunny", Playboy Penguin is left behind by his troupe and, while trying to catch up with them, meets Bugs, who promises to take him home and then learns penguins come from South Pole. It's only after they arrived there that Playboy shows Bugs a poster of his show.

* ArchEnemy: Of all the characters Bugs goes up against, Elmer Fudd is probably the most frequent. Of course, Elmer is hopelessly outclassed... ** On the other hand, he's perhaps the most frequent to actually defeat Bugs (a total of three times, only Daffy has done so the same amount of times, and none of which were via the original theatrical shorts). *** A common myth; though the rivalry is iconic, there were actually comparatively few Bugs vs. Elmer shorts. Because Elmer is, as mentioned, hopelessly outclassed, it was a delicate dance to make sure Bugs didn't cross the line from merry prankster to outright bully (one they didn't always pull off so well). One of the reasons Yosemite Sam was created was to give Bugs an adversary who was smart enough (or, failing that, belligerent enough) that Bugs still looked like the good guy at the end of the cartoon. **** He was however still one of Bugs' most frequent enemies, only Yosemite Sam really challenges his total bouts against the rabbit, not to mention they consist of what many consider some of the most iconic Bugs shorts to date. **** Part of the reason Elmer gets this treatment is because he's the opponent that [[ThrowTheDogABone got a cartoon where he cleanly outdid Bugs]] - granted, he did so via role reversal (Elmer went crazy and believed himself to be Bugs; psychiatrists then kidnapped Bugs and convinced him that he was Elmer), but Elmer still came out on top. *** Cecil Turtle is not only 3-0 against Bugs, he beat Bugs at his own game. (Technically Bugs won the last one, but it was clearly a moral victory for Cecil.)

* BadassAdorable: Could ''you'' calmly ask "Eeeeh, whatz up, doc?" with a shotgun up your nose? ** Also qualifies as TooDumbToLive.

* [[DependingOnTheArtist Depending On The Animator]]: In the late forties it was easy to tell who had directed which Bugs cartoon just by looking at Bugs's design. Friz Freleng used the design which we all know and love today, Chuck Jones had a slightly different version with larger eyes, larger cheeks and more pointy teeth, and Robert [=McKimson=] (plus, for his sole Bugs Bunny outing, Arthur Davis) had a majorly different version with stubbier legs, a slight pot belly, more slanted eyes, long teeth, and a ''huge'' mouth that flapped around like a windsock whenever he talked. At the end of the decade, the differences became a lot less pronounced.

And Creator/BobClampett had an incredible variety of ways to draw Bugs, since he gave his animators more leeway in deviating from the model sheets. At the end of the decade, the differences became a lot less pronounced.

** Some artists would even play this up for comedic effect. Picking out Rod Scribner's and [=Robert McKimson=]'s animation of Bugs in a Bob Clampett cartoon is considered almost the entry level for identifying Golden Age artists' styles.

** Some artists would even play this up for comedic effect. Picking out Rod Scribner's and [=Robert McKimson=]'s animation of Bugs in a Bob Clampett cartoon is considered almost the entry level for identifying Golden Age artists' styles. "Buckaroo Bugs" is probably the easiest instance to distinguish Scribner and McKimson's styles, because there's a scene late in the film where Scribner's animation abruptly switches to Mckimson's animation in the middle of chewing a carrot!

* BreakoutCharacter: Much like DonaldDuck before him, Bugs' popularity ended up eclipsing his predecessors, Porky and Daffy. The difference however is that Bugs eventually became the face of the company.

* TheBully: In several early shorts, Bugs would harass outmatched opponents for the sheer fun of it. The creative team soon eased out of it, though were fearful pitiful adversaries such as ElmerFudd weren't provocative enough and were still leaning him dangerously into this trope.
