Righteous Rabbit
Rabbits are usually presented as the good guys in fiction. This is result of What Measure Is a Non-Cute?. Cute fuzzy animals are usually the good guys, and ugly creepy ones are usually the bad guys.

This is a subtrope to Good Animals, Evil Animals and Herbivores Are Friendly and is also a type of Animal Stereotype.

This positive portrayal of rabbits is by no means universal, however it is common enough that subverting it has become its own trope. Aversions and subversions are usually a Hair-Raising Hare.

Contrast with Reptiles Are Abhorrent, as well as with closer mammal tropes Cats Are Mean and You Dirty Rat.
