* KickTheDog: His prototype literally does this in "Prest-O Change-O", using his magic tricks to torment a couple of puppies. Eventually the enraged larger puppy overpowers him and [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom clocks him hard across the room]].

* AmbiguouslyJewish: The Brooklyn accent, among other things, but also subtle things, like when he mentions having grown up playing Pisha-Paysha after being challenged to a game of blackjack (by Blacque Jacques Shellacque in ''Bonanza Bunny'').

* AmbiguouslyJewish: The Brooklyn accent, among other things, but also subtle things, like when he mentions having grown up playing Pisha-Paysha after being challenged to a game of blackjack (by Blacque Jacques Shellacque in ''Bonanza Bunny''). The fact that [[Creator/MelBlanc his actor]] was a Jew might have had something to do with it.

''Bugs Bunny'' is the modern American {{T|heTrickster}}rickster and easily the most famous star of the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies]] cartoons, as well as ''the'' most famous cartoon character in the world (well, [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse second]] most). This character as FunnyAnimal is found in many cultures' mythologies, including Literature/ReynardTheFox, Anansi the spider, American Indian spirit Coyote, and Bugs' great-grandfather, [[Disney/SongOfTheSouth Br'er Rabbit]]. Bugs is specifically a KarmicTrickster: harmless when left alone, but gleefully ready to dish out poetic justice whenever he perceives the need. There is an element of education in his revenge.

More directly, shy, timid prey unexpectedly turning on the pursuer was a common theme at the Creator/WarnerBros animation studios in the early days - WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck made his debut in the same way. Director Ben 'Bugs' Hardaway introduced the notion of this character as a "scwewy wabbit" in "Porky's Hare Hunt" (1938), and the same small white hare appears in various later shorts, notably Chuck Jones' "WesternAnimation/ElmersCandidCamera" (1940). His name, first seen on-screen in the credits for 1941's "Elmer's Pet Rabbit", derives either from Hardaway's -- model sheets were said to have been tagged with "Bugs' Bunny" -- or the contemporary Brooklyn slang "bugs", meaning "crazy". Or both. Creator/TexAvery, Creator/FrizFreleng, as well as Robert Givens, however, adamantly insist that Hardaway's Bugs was a completely separate character from the Bugs we know and love, that the name and species is all he shares in common with the real Bugs.
