''[[http://www.bladebunny.com Blade Bunny]]'' is a fantasy/humor OELManga webcomic by Eric "Drowemos" Kimball and Erwin Prasetya about [[InsistentTerminology Bunny]], an assassin-for-hire in a mash up of feudal Japan and ancient China. Hired by Lord Farnalan (when his own personal {{ninja}}s failed) to kill the Head Clan of the Asaki Clan.

Things go well at first, until [[ImplacableMan Wolf Fang]] enters the picture. Then things go down to hell, becoming embroiled in a war with spirits? and the journey to find some kind of... pearl?. It's confusing, mainly because the story is told from her point of view and she tends to fall sleep in the long boring speeches.

She wears a pair of bunny ears and a fluffy tail on the back of her skirt, oh and no underwear. While it could be considered SFW, it's very heavy in blood and doesn't pull punches in the most brutal deaths.

''Blade Bunny'' is also published in tankoubon form by Gashu Group. The first volume was released in February 2013. Unfortunately not long after that, [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2013/07/11/well-were-dead/ the comic had to go on hiatus]] because [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/press-release/2013-07-10/viz-media-launches-monsuno-combat-chaos-original-graphic-novel-series Erwin got a job drawing another series]] for Creator/VIZMedia. Then he got back to Drowemos with more pages and indicated they could start up again in September.

Not to be confused with Webcomic/BladeKitten.

* TheDreaded: [[spoiler: Ao-lung]] is the only one so far who can shut up Bunny with a simple [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2011/03/09/book-5-page-9/ glare]].
** The Bounty Hunter is pretty much Bunny's nightmare made real.
** Kyoto's "slip" had made her this for Jin. So far, he trusts Bunny more than her [[spoiler: although it could be because Bunny never lied, or treated him with disrespect]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: The "what could have been" bonus strips [[http://www.bladebunny.com/comic/book-15-page-18/ here]] show what normally would have been Bunny's quick solution to [[spoiler: being attacked by a demon wielding Kyoto's powers.

** [[spoiler: Sherri]] gets called out for killing someone she didn't have to and replies that that's the point of power, you don't have to do anything.
* GenreSavvy: Borderline [[MetaGuy Meta Girl]]. Bunny doesn't put any attention to any exposition... because she apparently knew all the plot twists way before even leaving Ao-Lung temple [[spoiler:down to Jin being the real immortal]].
* GodivaHair: [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2010/11/22/book-4-page-1/ Here]].
* GoodIsNotNice: The Bounty Hunter. Calm, polite and will not hurt an innocent, but if you are suspected to be an accomplice of his "target" he will end you.
* TheGunslinger: [[spoiler:[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot A cowboy robot, infinite ammo, bean canon bounty hunter from ancient Japan flavor]]]]
* HeroAntagonist: The Bounty Hunter. Bunny is a ''remorseless serial killer'' that is working for the "good guys" on penalty of death after all.

* InnocentFanserviceGirl: It may be [[ObfuscatingStupidity an act]].
* InsistentTerminology: "IT'S BUNNY!!!"

--> '''Kyoto:''' I'm sorry, I can't let you leave.\\
'''Bunny:''' [[TalkToTheFist OK]].
* LogicBomb: Averted repeatedly.
--> '''Bunny:''' Calculate this out. Can God make a rock so big he can't move it?\\
[[spoiler:'''Wolf''']]''':''' [[AskAStupidQuestion YES]].\\
'''Bunny:''' ... Really?
** Also:
--> '''Bunny:''' How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?\\
[[spoiler:'''Wolf''']]''':''' 3079 pounds of wood per year.
** Once more:
--> '''Bunny:''' This statement is false. What do you think of that?\\
[[spoiler:'''Wolf''']]''':''' It's stupid.
** And then if finally [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2013/02/05/book-11-page-27/ works]].

* MagicSkirt: Several images appear to look upward at Bunny when she is, by her own admission, wearing a miniskirt and no underwear. It remains SFW. Most obvious [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2012/06/20/book-9-page-12/ here]].

* NoMisterBondIExpectYouToDine: "Free food? Yeah!"
* NoodleIncident: Bunny hasn't seen a zombie horde, but she once saw a zombie political action committee who managed to get in the school council so they could improve the student BRAINZZZZ.
** Whenever Bunny [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2010/12/27/book-4-page-11/ mentions]] her [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2011/12/12/book-7-page-10/ ex]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Bunny can't even work out how to use chopsticks. [[spoiler: Until she gets an opening to use them as a weapon.]]
** [[spoiler: The dream(?) sequence starting [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2013/06/10/book-12-pages-0-and-1/ this]]page confirms that it is in fact all an act, that she is in fact much more intelligent than she lets on, possibly even a genius level intellect.]]
** In Book 5, Bunny sees a cute guy and tries to make out with him, only for Kyoto to drag her away. [[spoiler:Seven books later, we learn that her ''real'' goal was pickpocketing the MacGuffin off of the guy while [[ShowSomeLeg distracting him with all that talk about making out.]]]]
* OfficerAndAGentleman: The Bounty Hunter. Of the southern variety.
* OhCrap: Wolf [[spoiler:survived having a building dropped on him.]]

* PunchedAcrossTheRoom:
--> '''Bunny:''' So what? You got no more [[spoiler: guns]]. You're completely helpless.\\
''[She was'' ''[[http://www.bladebunny.com/2011/07/11/book-6-page-5/ wrong]].]''
* {{Qipao}}: Bunny wears one in the home of [[spoiler: Ao-Lung]].
* Really700YearsOld [[spoiler: Jin]] turns out to have been 10k Years old all along.
* RecklessGunUsage: Yeah, she is kind of an idiot like that.
* RuleOfCute: By Bunny's own admission, it's the reason she wears a fluffy tail on her butt.
* SceneryCensor: When Kyoto blocks her own view of a naked Bunny, she coincidentally blocks the reader's as well.
* ScheduleSlip: Of the hardware failure variety.
* ShesGotLegs: Her outfit from Kyoto.
* ShowSomeLeg: [[spoiler:Bunny's attempt to make out with "Lucky" was just a ruse to get close enough to him to pickpocket the MacGuffin pearl.]]
* SplitPersonality: Don't push Kyoto. [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2012/11/12/book-11-page-2/ Just don't.]]
* SuperStrength: She is insanely strong, far above even SuperSoldiers and warriors [[spoiler:but a complete weakling against robots, who toss her around like a rag doll]].
* SuperReflexes: [[CaptainObvious It comes with being a ninja]].
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Done [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2012/05/07/book-9-page-2/ deliberately]] - she really didn't do anything, she just wants people to slow down while they work out what she did.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Many times, but stopping to taunt your victim's bodyguards with a [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2010/06/21/page-20-in-high-res/ poem]] when they have arrows is not really a good idea.
* TemptingFate: Really, Bunny, you have to stop underestimating your opponents [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2011/07/11/book-6-page-5/ so]] [[http://www.bladebunny.com/2010/09/01/book-2-page-18-in-high-res/ much]].

* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Implied with [[spoiler:Bunny herself]].
* TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard: When told the immortal's true name, the Chrome Cowboy complains that it takes too much drive space to store and too much time to shout in anger.

-->'''Bunny:''' Yeah, you sound like my ex. "All I want to do is talk" and then the bondage gear comes out.
* VaporWear: Bunny claims that she isn't wearing underwear in the first storyline.
-->[[http://www.bladebunny.com/2010/07/05/book-2-page-1b/ "Umů I meanů Look it's laundry day and that's not the point."]]
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Discussed in [[http://www.bladebunny.com/comic/book-15-page-18/ this]] "what could have been" bonus strip.
-->'''Bunny:''' You robots are all defective. All you do is talk about killing me instead of just killing me.
* WhyWontYouDie: Wolf.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Parodied to hell and back with [[SociopathicHero Bunny]] by various characters [[spoiler: but done honestly by Bunny, both real and imaginary, to Kyoto]].
