Basic Trope: A rabbit/hare is portrayed as evil, frightening, and/or dangerous.
Straight: Rodney the Rabbit is a dangerous sadist.
- Rodney is an outright villain who often murders just for fun.
- All rabbits/hares are portrayed in this way.
Downplayed: Rodney is a Jerkass, and can prove to be a force to not be trifled with if he needs to be. However, he's not necessarily evil.
- Rodney had abusive owners (or parents/family, if he's a Funny Animal).
- Despite being cute, lagomorphs can be fairly dangerous, especially undomesticated/wild ones.
Inverted: Righteous Rabbit
Subverted: Rodney brandishes a knife, but is soon shown to just be chopping a carrot.
Double Subverted: Afterwards, Rodney stabs someone.
Zig Zagged: Some rabbits and hares shown fit into this trope, while some don't.
Averted: There are no rabbits in the work.
Enforced: The creator of the work thinks that it would be interesting to see the contrast of a cute animal being dangerous.
Lampshaded: "Have you ever met Rodney? Be glad if you haven't."
Invoked: Rodney is violent to fend off animals that want to eat him.
Conversed: "How can such a cute creature be so evil?"
