Hell was once ruled with an iron claw by its undead ruler, King Hare, but even in Hell no one on lives forever. When King Hare passed on, his duties of ruling Hell were passed onto his son, Prince Ash. Ash ruled the underworld with his tyranny, and all was good for the new ruler. But Ash has one embarrassing secret he wishes no one to know about: he has a thing for rubber duckies. Then on one fateful night, a paparazzi snuck into Ash's bathroom while he was taking a bath and took pictures of him playing with his favorite rubber duck (named Ducktator) and posted the tabloids on [[TheInternet the Hellternet]] for all to see.

With his good name being slandered all across Hell, Ash sets out to recover the evidence, find the 100 monsters who had seen the incriminating photos, and [[GottaKillThemAll kill them all]].

'''''Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit''''' is an indie action-platformer developed by Arkedo Studio, the makers of ''VideoGame/BigBangMini'' and the ''Arkedo Series'' of Xbox Live Indie Games and [=PlayStation Network=] titles, and published by Creator/{{Sega}}. In this game, Ash must repair his reputation in Hell by finding the monsters that know about his secret and disposing of them in a variety of [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill over-the-top ways]]. To do that, Ash must outfit himself with an arsenal of guns and his father's old jet pack/giant buzzsaw/drill to access new areas. Along the way, Ash can pick up loot scattered across the stages of the game and [[SarcasmMode waste his money]] on upgrades, guns, clothes and skins for his jet-pack.

The game was released onto [[PlayStationNetwork PlayStation Network]] on September 25th, 2012 and the day after for XboxLiveArcade. A PC version of the game was released through {{Steam}} on October 3rd, 2012; the PC version can also be found on Sega's e-Shop and Amazon's download service.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Quite violent for a T-rated game. Also, Ash was called a "pussy". [[spoiler:Twice!]]

* KillerRabbit: A skeletal one riding a sawblade, no less!
* LighterAndSofter: Zone 8, with [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter happy and cute critters]], bright colors, and [[EarWorm a happy song]] to go along with it. All this sickens our rampaging hero.
* LoadingScreen: They give you "[[SarcasmMode Random Not So Useful Advice]]" with some elevator music playing as you wait for the game to load.

* MiniGame: Performing these is how you kill your targets.
* MoonLogicPuzzle: One of the monsters wishes to see his nearby beloved, but both of them are inaccessible at the time. The trick is to [[spoiler:zoom out so they're both on screen simultaneously.]] A similar situation is present for an alien who is waiting for his lover to come home in space.
* MoreDakka: One of Ash's finishing moves has him shooting Cupid's arrow at an enemy and then finishing it off with a ''swarm'' of arrows.

** Zone 4 has a playing card enemy called Forkinayse. [[AllThereInTheManual His name in life was Asa Hertz.]]

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Sweet, sweet, absurd revenge.
* RuleOfCool: The only possible reason Ash's jetpack is a flying buzzsaw monocycle that also acts as a drill.

* [[spoiler: [[TheDogWasTheMastermind The Sentient Handpuppet Controlling Ash's Cousin Was The Mastermind]]]]

[[folder: Hell Yeah! News Flash! The Price is STILL a pussy!! ]]

*** A possible answer to the "Which labyrinth must end right now?" question is "[[Film/PansLabyrinth Pan's]]". [[spoiler:[[CreatorWorship It's also not the right answer.]]]]
*** Another asks "Which gaming character is obviously the best one published by Sega?". The possible answers includes VideoGame/{{Ristar}}, [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Shadow]], and [[VideoGame/SuperMonkeyBall AiAi]]. [[spoiler:None of them are the right the answer.]]

** There is a finishing move which involves Ash wearing [[Film/GameOfDeath a yellow motorcycle suit]] [[Film/KillBill with a black stripe down the side]].
** The aforementioned ''Space Invaders'' shout out finisher.
** In Zone 2, there's an enemy that resembles a moai from ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}''. To further drive the point home, its real last name is "Gradius".
** After killing an enemy from the '''FIRE STARTER!''' mini-game, a toasted toast pops up to say "''[[Franchise/MortalKombat Toasty!]]''" or "''Roasted!''".
** The sound of Ash entering a boss room sounds like [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros a plumber going into a warp-tube]].

** One of the minigames is called [[ChuChuRocket Chew Chew Racklette.]]
** Failing the '''GOOD DOG!''' minigame has a [[VideoGame/DuckHunt familiar dog]] taunt you for it.
** The '''ROCK & ROFL!''' minigame obviously pays homage to [[VideoGame/GuitarHero Guitar Hero]].

* ThisIsTheFinalBattle: Right before you fight the last monster, the words "FINAL BOSS" appear on the screen. Just so you know.
* TitleScream: '''''"Hell yeaaaaaaah!"'''''
* ToiletHumor: There are butts that you can jump on that will propel you by farting. Also, one of the enemies you meet earlier on in the game is a pile of poo with a chainsaw attached to it.
** Later you meet a butt couple named [=BadAss=] and [=BadAssette=] (and they're not {{badass}}).
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The minigames. This is the sort of game where you're firing missiles at an enemy, and the moment their health hits zero -- '''QUIZ OF DOOM!'''
* UndergroundLevel: Zone 5.
* VillainProtagonist: Ash is a lord of Hell who aims to kill stuff to save his own reputation after all.
* WaveMotionGun: Ash's Beam-O-Blaster.
** He also has access to a laser-mounted satellite [[ItMakesSenseInContext by hitting it with a shark-shaped missile]].
* WeakButSkilled: Ash can't even attack when he's out of his jetpack, which doesn't stop him from racking up kills using the environment to his advantage.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: One of Ash's finishers puts his victim in a wrestling ring while Ash lays the smackdown in a luchador get-up.
* [[spoiler:[[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Son]], PrepareToDie: Pengoredad and Ma Buzzby in Zone 8 are out for Ash's blood -- er, bones after killing their son Kwakalot back in Zone 6. Although Kwackalot isn't exactly dead, so much as he's been banished to an island doing slave labor for Ash.]]
