Bunnykill is a flash series hosted on Newgrounds. The stories follow a white rabbit named Snowball slicing, hacking, slashing, shooting, gunning, and blasting his way through legions of grey bunny {{Mooks}}. The main draw of the series is the juxtaposition of cutesy cartoon bunnies getting shot up and sliced into bloody pieces. Mottis is not attempting to tell a "coherent" story with it; instead, like ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' franchise, each episode is stand-alone, taking the same characters in multiple directions.

The series is commonly described as ''WebAnimation/MadnessCombat'' [[RecycledINSPACE with bunnies]]. In terms of animation and choreography, this is a very apt comparison, [[SincerestFormOfFlattery as admitted by the animator himself]]. More recently, the two series have distanced themselves quite a bit in the story department, with ''WebAnimation/MadnessCombat'' becoming DarkerAndEdgier while BunnyKill has explored more fantastic setting such as a Franchise/StarWars parody and feudal Japan.

Mottis announced on 5/1/13 that he is no longer working on the series and will be moving on to other endeavors.

Characters include:

* '''Snowball''': A white rabbit who is the main character of the series. He is an assassin who wields a variety of weapons, but seems to favor a katana. ''Death Count: 1''
* '''Smoke''': A black rabbit with sunglasses. He first appeared as the BigBad of the first episode, was Snowball's employer in the second episode's prologue, appeared in the third episode as a partner to Snowball, and is once again the BigBad in episode 5. ''Death Count: 3''
* '''Dust''': A brown rabbit with a red mohawk. He appeared as the BigBad of ''Bunny Kill 2'' and was the final enemy of ''Bunny Kill 3''. In ''5'', he's the target of a rescue mission [[spoiler:until Smoke makes him temporarily BrainwashedAndCrazy and he subsequently kills Snowball, and becomes the new protagonist of ''5'', going on one hell of a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the ones responsible.]] ''Death Count: 2''
* '''Professor Sludge''': A tan MadScientist rabbit with wild Dr. Wily style hair and a scar down one eye. He was the BigBad of ''Bunny Kill 3'', and appears as Smoke's partner in ''5'' before being [[spoiler:betrayed by Smoke, who leaves him behind to be the first victim of BrainwashedAndCrazy Dust]]. ''Death Count: 2''
* '''Ruby''': A pink rabbit who is currently the only female cast member. She first appeared in ''Bunny Kill 4'' as Snowball's [[FireForgedFriends Fire-Forged Friend]]. ''Death Count: 1''
* '''Flint''': A tan rabbit with ScaryShinyGlasses who doesn't seem to talk much. First appeared in ''Bunny Kill 4'' as that episode's Big Bad, and makes a small cameo in ''5'' as Snowball's MissionControl [[spoiler:and turns out to be the one behind the PsychoSerum experiment who deliberately sent Snowball to his death on the orders of an as-yet-unnamed figure]]. ''Death Count: 2''
* '''The Minions''': The {{mooks}}. They range from standard mooks, to MechaMooks, to {{Giant Mook}}s and more, but they rarely last more than a few seconds against Snowball [[spoiler:or Dust]]. ''Death Count: 433.''

'''Tropes include:'''

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: All the blades. ''All of them.'' Every blade appears to be strong and durable enough to block bullets.
* ActionGirl: Ruby
* AlternateContinuity: Each episode takes place in its own continuity.
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: [[spoiler:Dust becomes the protagonist of episode 5 after he's forced to kill Snowball while BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* AnAxeToGrind: Some of the mooks in ''5'' use axes against Snowball. For all the good it does them.
* AnyoneCanDie: Even the protagonist.
* ArtEvolution
* AxCrazy: Professor Sludge is pretty much the only character who doesn't like getting his murder on.
* AwesomeButImpractical: The minigun in 5.2 takes a long time to set up (with a progress bar even), but had Dust not had a riot shield handy he'd be LudicrousGibs. Even still, it's knockback was enough to keep him pinned until the ammo belt got jammed due to lack of maintainence.
* BackToBackBadasses: Inverted. In 4, Snowball and Ruby are initially ''front to front'' badasses, and later instead decide to flank Flint.
* {{Badass}}: All over the place. Flint deserves bonus points, given [[spoiler:his reaction to Snowball going all super-anime-glowing-mode is to simply [[DualWielding spawn a second sword]]. His clones attack said Snowball ''unarmed''.]]
* BadassBoast: [[spoiler:"Shut the [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]] up. I'm coming for you next, punk. Expect me."]]
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Smoke, in the first installment. Leads immediately to WreckedWeapon.
* BerserkButton: If you hurt Snowball's girlfriend, he will kill you. If you ''kill'' his girlfriend, he will kill you ''slowly.''
** And as revealed in ''5'', it is not a good idea to [[spoiler:kill Snowball, make his good friend Dust do the same, or betray either of them. Because Dust will stop at ''nothing'' to end you]].
* BitterSweetEnding: The fourth episode. [[spoiler:Snowball defeats Flint, but not before Flint kills Ruby. [[WordOfGod Mottis]] said she'll likely come back if enough people like her, though.]]
* BladeBrake: Done a total of 3 times by Dust in ''5.2'': once to stop himself from falling off a truck into the street, twice to slow down a car.
* BladeOnAStick: Both Ruby and the samurai minions use one in ''4''.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Dust in ''5'', courtesy of Sludge's PsychoSerum. He snaps out of it only after [[DeadSidekick killing Snowball]]]].
* ButtMonkey: Professor Sludge, who goes down like a complete chump in both of his appearances.
* ChaseFight: The latter half of ''5.2'', on a highway. And it is awesome.
* CallBack: The death of the two ninjas in the fifth episode is the same as in the first: [[spoiler: the first is stabbed by his friend, the second gets stabbed with two swords, then lifted bodily up to slide further down.]]
** The second ninja uses teleport spam similar to what Smoke used in 1 and what Snowball himself used during his SuperMode in 4. [[spoiler: Snowball knows the trick by now and correctly guesses where the next strike will come from.]]
* CoolShades: Smoke is never seen without his blue sunglasses. [[spoiler: They're all that's left of him in 5.2 after Dust is done with him, letting off one last shine before getting minced by a helicopter.]]
* CoolSword: Snowball and Dust always get their hands on these: Snowball's trusty katana in 1, 4 and 5, Dust's several katana in 2 (one of which Snowball takes), the lightsabers (including Dust's DoubleWeapon) in 3), and of course Dust's awesome SwissArmyWeapon in 5. Smoke, who normally prefers [[OneHandedIsCool handguns]], uses a [[ShoutOut purple lightsaber]] in 3, and Flint summons katana with a thought in 4.
* DeadSidekick: If Snowball is partnered up with someone in a Bunnykill flash, chances are he or she will be dead by the time the flash is over.
** Smoke is killed by Dust in ''3'' after a battle reminiscent of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan vs. Darth Maul from Franchise/StarWars Episode 1.
** Ruby is killed by Flint in ''4'', taking the shuriken for Snowball and triggering the mother of all {{Unstoppable Rage}}s in Snowball.
** ''5'' looked like it would be going this way too, only for [[spoiler:Snowball himself to end up this for Dust, who recovered from being BrainwashedAndCrazy only after killing him]].
* DeathIsCheap: Thanks to the AlternateContinuity, characters killed in one episode can come back in another.
* DecoyProtagonist: [[spoiler:Snowball himself]] in episode 5.
* {{Determinator}}: The robot walker from the third episode, and Dust throughout the entire second half of ''5''.
* DoubleWeapon: Dust in ''3'' wields a double-bladed lightsaber reminiscent of Darth Maul. Ruby in ''4'' wields a double-bladed staff.
* DiabolusExVacuus: Dust in ''3''.
* DualWielding: Most anyone who uses a melee weapon has a chance of pulling this trope. Snowball in particular is pretty much guaranteed to mow down {{Mooks}} faster and take down EliteMooks in the next few moments once he gets his hands on two [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]].
* EliteMooks: The ninjas in ''1'', agents in ''2'', the jetpack duo in ''3'', the red ninjas in ''4'', and the invisible teleporting bunnies in ''5''.
** Every installment after the first has darker grey bunnies that are slightly more competent and better-armed compared to basic Mooks.
* ExplodingBarrels: Prevalent throughout ''5'' but only utilized on a few occasions.
* ForScience: Professor Sludge's entire character, according to the credits for ''5.2''.
* FlashStep: Various forms of short-range teleportation are used in the fourth installment; Flint's even uses the pose of [[DragonBall Goku's instant transmission]]. Smoke can also do this in Bunnykill 1, leading to a TeleportSpam move that reduces Snowball to YouCanBarelyStand.
* FriendOrFoe: Snowball and Ruby fall into this when they run into each other in Episode 4. As anyone in the [=Bunnykill=] world that stands out amongst [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals the endless mooks]] tends to be a dangerous threat, both of them could be forgiven for immediately attacking each other.
* GatlingGood: Or not so good, as two mooks found out when they only managed to [[spoiler: stall Dust long enough for Smoke to escape to the helicopter on the roof. Smoke would have made a clean escape if the minigun's feeding belt hadn't jammed.]]
* GiantMook: Several
* {{Gorn}}: It ''was'' inspired by ''WebAnimation/MadnessCombat'', after all.
* GunAndSword: Snowball, on occasion.
* TheGunslinger: Smoke.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: well, bunny. But it happens.
* HarsherInHindsight: Invoked. Snowball's final line in the credits of ''5.2'' is "Heroes never die." Wow.
* HelicopterBlender: [[spoiler: Smoke's ultimate end in ''5.2''.]]
** UpToEleven: The helicopter blades damage several cars and shred the underbelly of a cargo truck without slowing down.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: For the most part averted. Snowball has to keep moving and use a lot of ImplausibleFencingPowers. At worst, they shoot where he was a half-second ago.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: Dust's katana-shotgun thing in ''5''.
* InvisibilityCloak: Used by a pair of EliteMooks in ''5''.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: They're the only swords to appear (other than lightsabers in ''3'').
* KickTheDog: Flint in killing Ruby, Snowball's only LoveInterest thus far.
** Smoke gets one in ''5'' by [[spoiler:activating the PsychoSerum injector, turning Dust BrainwashedAndCrazy and ultimately leading to Snowball's death. Leaving his own partner to be killed by the aforementioned Dust was also a serious dick move.]] He's also a ''colossal'' dick to his mooks in the second half, deliberately shoving them into the way of his pursuer to save his own hide.
* KillerRabbit: Well, ''duh.'' Check the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin title.]]
* LaserBlade: The standard sword in ''Bunnykill 3'' is a lightsaber.
** In ''5'', the cyborg ninjas have laser blades that don't seem as reliable, and other EliteMooks sometimes carry stun batons that glow just like a LaserBlade.
* LoweredMonsterDifficulty: Every single variety of EliteMook.
** Averted with the cyborg walker in ''3''.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Some of the mooks in ''5'' use police shields. [[KleptomaniacHero Naturally, Snowball steals one, as does Dust]].
* MadScientist: Professor Sludge.
* MasterSwordsman: Snowball and Dust.
* MechaMooks: Robot rabbits in the third episode.
* MilkyWhiteEyes: Dust. [[spoiler:In ''5'', they're a sign that he's BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Dust, after killing Snowball]] in ''5''.
* NeckSnap: Snowball does it in ''5.''
* NoEnding: Shortly after announcing the series' cancellation, Motis claimed that he was "never going to continue the story" after Episode 5; the next planned animation -- Episode 5.3 -- was a prequel, and then NegativeContinuity would have taken over as usual for Episode 6.
* NonActionGuy: Professor Sludge. Sadly, he's in a WorldOfBadass, so of all the named characters he tends to die the quickest after appearing in person.
* NotQuiteSavedEnough: One mook in episode 5 part 2 who gets his arm ripped off by Dust manages to escape for a few moments while Dust tends to his colleagues. Dust even lets him live once said colleagues are dead. Unfortunately for him, Dust ends up needing to use him as a [[BulletproofHumanShield Bulletproof Bunny Shield.]]
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Dust falls god-knows-how many stories off the roof of a building after missing Smoke's helicopter, and all that happens is he lands on top of a truck, and keeps going.
** The ending implies he broke several ribs.
* OneManArmy: Snowball, obviously.
* TheRival: Some fans consider Dust to be this to Snowball.
* PlayingWithSyringes: What Professor Sludge and Smoke were doing to Dust in ''5''. [[spoiler:And the syringe was full of PsychoSerum.]]
* ProfessionalKiller: Everybody except Professor Sludge.
* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: A jam in the minigun is what [[spoiler: gives Dust the chance to take it out and catch up to Smoke]] in ''5.2''.
** TruthInTelevision; if a belt-fed gun is crew-operated, it's crew-operated for this very reason.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Following [[spoiler:Snowball's death]] in the climax of the first half of ''5'', [[spoiler:Dust]] goes on one hell of a rampage in the second half, [[spoiler:and kills not only Smoke, but Flint, who it turns out was behind the PsychoSerum thing in the first place and deliberately sent Snowball to his death on the orders of an as-of-yet unnamed figure. And Dust is going after ''him'' next!]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Flint.
* SceneryPorn: The city backgrounds in ''5''.
* SequelEscalation
* ShoutOut: Bunnykill engages in quite numerous shoutouts on occasion. ''3'' has the lightsabers, ''4'' has one to ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'', and the Dragon Shrine showdown in ''4'' has several to shounen anime, such as Flint's [[Manga/{{Naruto}} shadow clone jutsu]] and Snowball going into a [[Anime/DragonBallZ Super Saiyan-like state]] after [[spoiler:Flint kills Ruby]], complete with fireball moves and even [[KingOfFighters Rugal's Genocide Cutter]].
** 5 has several to Franchise/MetalGear: The intro with codec screen, hiding in boxes, the exclamation mark warning...
* SociopathicHero
* StabTheScorpion: How Smoke becomes Snowball's ally in ''3''.
* StockScream: Wilhelm joins the FBI in ''5 part 2''.
* TheStoic: Flint. He fights, [[spoiler:kills Ruby, and even ''dies'']] with the same level of calmness.
** He's demonstrating a certain mixture of exhausted panting and attempts to flee by the end.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Dust's [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]]-[[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] in ''5''.
* SuperMode: Snowball's "White Avenger" mode, which is seen by many as a ShoutOut to DragonBallZ's Super Saiyans.
** Fighting game fans may also see references to the [[StreetFighter Satsui No Hadou]] and the [[KingOfFighters Orochi power]]. It's a strange mixture.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Until ''5'', no one spoke, except for rare instances where "conversations" were staged using speech bubbles and pictures. Flint, Snowball, [[spoiler:Dust, and an unknown person]], are all given lines in ''5'', albeit only on a video chat device (and no voice actors).
* TakingTheBullet: Well, taking the shuriken in ''Bunny Kill 4''.
* TakingYouWithMe: One red ninja attempts this after being shot with an arrow by Snowball. It doesn't work, but he gets points for trying.
* [[spoiler:TheseHandsHaveKilled: Dust does this in ''5'' immediately after snapping out of his BrainwashedAndCrazy state and realizing he's just killed Snowball.]]
* [[spoiler:ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: The final kill of ''5''? Dust chucks his ImpossiblyCoolWeapon at Smoke, [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling him]] and sending him [[HelicopterBlender falling into the spinning rotors of his own helicopter.]]]]
* [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMan: Flint and the mysterious figure that he answers to in ''5''.]]
* [[spoiler:TreacherousAdvisor[=/=]TreacherousQuestgiver: Flint in ''5'']]
* UnstoppableRage: Snowball unleashes the fury in ''4'' when Flint crosses the line.
** As does [[spoiler:Dust]] throughout the second half of ''5'' in response to [[spoiler:Snowball's death]].
* TheVoiceless: Everybody. Some get quotes during the credits, though, and Smoke speaks to Snowball with simple pictures in thought balloons.
** Averted thrice in ''5'''. During the intro, characters have text dialogue; and at the climax, a character actually gives a voiced scream ([[spoiler: Dust breaking out of the PsychoSerum trance]]) and in the 2nd half one of the mooks performs the [[StockScream Wilhelm Scream]] [[spoiler: during the highway chase in the finale]].
* WhamEpisode: Episode 5 turns the series formula right on its head by [[spoiler:having ''Snowball'' killed for the first time in the entire series, and subsequently the first episode where Snowball ultimately isn't the main protagonist.]]
* WhiteBunny: The aptly named [[TheHero Snowball]].
* WilhelmScream: Let out by a mook during the ChaseFight scene between [[spoiler:Dust and Smoke]].
* WorldOfBadass: Professor Sludge is the only character, named ''or unnamed'', who isn't a fighter. And ''he's'' a MadScientist.
