Playing With / Hair-Raising Hare

Go To

Basic Trope: A rabbit/hare is portrayed as evil, frightening, and/or dangerous.

Straight: Rodney the Rabbit is a dangerous sadist.

Exaggerated:

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.

Justified:

  • Rodney had abusive owners (or parents/family, if he's a Funny Animal).
  • Advertisement:
  • 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.

Parodied:

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.

Exploited:

Defied:

Discussed:

Conversed: "How can such a cute creature be so evil?"

Deconstructed:
