Added DiffLines:

* The Jackalope was one of the cryptid builds discussed in the AprilFoolsDay episode of ''WebVideo/TierZoo''. In order to unlock the jackalope, a player would need to select a rabbit build and get infected with the shope papilloma virus. While the idea of a rabbit with antlers sounds promising, in reality these antlers are actually tumorous growths. Because the virus significantly reduces the playtime of rabbit players, the jackalope was placed at the bottom of the game's tier list.


* ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' had a basselope -- a cross between a basset hound and an antelope, which bred with a rabbit to make jackabasselopes.

** Could have a grain of truth to it. During that time many dinosaur fossils were being uncovered and labelled as different species. The Hodag sounds a bit like a Stegosaur itself.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Fantasy Bestiary'' includes several types of fearsome critters.
** Cactus cats are very speedy felines with sharp projections of bone growing from their paws. Their favorite method of attack is to run quickly by their targets, slashing them with their blades as they go. They are also known to enjoy eating psychoactive cacti, hence their name.
** Hodags are fierce, swamp-dwelling beasts about as big as a moose, with a ridge of spines down their backs. They have no knee joints, and thus sleep by leaning against trees. People hunt them by partially sawing through the trees they sleep against, so that these break when the animal leans against them and tip the hodag to the ground. They are also known to walk backwards, making them difficult to track.
** Hoop snakes are highly venomous and can outrun any creature alive while rolling with their tails in their mouths, but must straighten out to pass through rough terrain or over obstacles -- as they're much slower when doing this, people pursued by hoop snakes are advised to head for broken terrain.
** Sliver cats, or ball-tailed cats, are puma-like felines with long tails tipped with bony maces. They wait in trees for passing prey, which they brain with their tails. If a group passes by its hiding spot, a sliver cat will strike the hindmost member and hope the rest won't notice.

Added DiffLines:

* The '''Cuero''', an octopus-like creature covered in fur like an otter, with a hooked claw at the end of each tentacle. Said to live in the shallows of streams and rivers, it's an ambush predator that snares prey with a taste for donkey flesh.


* "VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad" described jackalopes as the bastard sons of Piltdown Man.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Jackalopes often appear as background fauna. They get along well with normal rabbits -- at the very least, a jackalope and a a rabbit in Fluttershy's menagerie seem to share a den.
