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 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.
  • Black Adder: Not quite a killer rabbit, but a joke on the trope. In the Black Adder millennial special, the Roman version of Rowan Atkinson character jokes that Hadrian's Wall that he is guarding is as frightening an obstacle as a rabbit with the word "boo" painted on its face.
