Killer Rabbit / Live-Action TV

  • In one episode of Xena: Warrior Princess, sidekick Gabrielle must fend off a vicious attack by what is essentially the Rabbit of Caerbannog.
  • The Basil Brush Show: The original Basil Brush.
  • The Furbie-esque Nubbins in Sanctuary are a variant of this — they're only dangerous in large groups and when being directly attacked, but their extremely high reproductive rate and lack of predators outside their natural environment make them potentially highly destructive to the ecosystem. Unfortunately, they're a Hive Mind far brighter than they seem, and are more than willing to sacrifice individual lives to escape and spread. Loook what happens to the large, vicious wolf-like abnormal the team sends after the nubbins. Look at the bones, indeed.
  • In an episode of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids called "Honey, the Bunny Bit It", Nick Szalinski revives the school mascot à la Frankenstein, and chaos ensues as it runs amok.
  • An America's Funniest Home Videos episode features a rabbit fighting a snake. The rabbit kicks the snake's proverbial ass, forcing the reptile to retreat up a low-hanging tree, despite the rabbit attempting to yank the snake down for more.
  • Buster Machine RH-03's rabbit mode in Tokumei Sentai Go Busters, able to send the Monster of the Week flying into the distance with a single kick.
  • The X-Files: The Monsters of the Week in "Teso Dos Bichos" responsible for killing several people are revealed to be household cats (or more like sewer cats).
  • The title creature in "Bunny Therapy", a fourth-season episode of The Middle, eventually takes over one of the Heck's bathrooms.
  • A killer koala guards the entrance to the shrine of the mountain god in The Hero Yoshihiko And The Devil Kings Castle. It's described as "a ferocious beast that kills anyone who steps near it." Luckily, it quickly gets tired.
  • Doctor Who: The Cybermats in "The Wheel in Space". At least one of their victim actually begs them gently to come closer because he isn't going to hurt them before they do, and hurt him.
  • Kamen Rider Drive: Kamen Rider Mach's Signal Danger power allows him to summon a Conspicuous CG creature that looks like a mix between a bullet and a shark; while this might sound scary, it's only about a foot long and has a cute nervous expression on its face. And then it plays the trope straight by growing ten times its normal size and mauling Monsters of the Week.
  • On Good Eats, Alton is doing a recipe that would (or could) call for rabbit meat. But, because of how rabbits are typically viewed in most of the Western world, he has to persuade the audience that rabbits are a viable food option. He does so by having a plush rabbit attack him, to show that they're not as cutesy as people think they are. (However, he does still suggest using chicken (especially the thighs) as an alternative, for people who still aren't convinced that rabbits can be food, or who can't eat rabbit meat for religious reasons.)
  • Life Of Riley: When Maddy goes round to an old woman's house to feed her cat while she's in hospital, it suddenly and abruptly turns into a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock movie. Eventually, all she can do to get out of there in one piece is to open a can of cat food and shove it through the letter box, almost loosing a finger in the process. You can imagine her reaction when she was then asked to go back and change the litter tray.
