Bloody Bunny is a Thailand-American animated series produced by 2Spot Studio. There have been four versions of the series:

  • Bloody Bunny (2008) is the first series. Never having been completed, it focuses on the rabbit plush belonging to a human girl who is killed by sentient dolls that are taking over the world, causing the doll to come to life and seek vengeance, accompanied by another doll named Mumu.

  • Bloody Bunny: Don't Be My Enemy was produced by Kachidoki Studio around 2012. There is no official English translation, but it can be watched in Korean on YouTube.
  • Ayupan x Bloody Bunny is a crossover with the animated idol character "ayupan", the cartoon avatar of Ayumi Hamasaki. This time around, Bloody Bunny is a guardian spirit of humanity sealed away 600 years ago, until ayupan unseals him with her singing— as well as the monsters which had sealed him in the first place. This series ran for five episodes on YouTube starting from February 2014, with all episodes reuploaded to the website in 2015. In addition to 2Spot, it is co-produced by the Japanese Avex Management and Thai animation studio RIFF CG.
  • Bloody Bunny: The First Blood, produced with help from Riff Animation Studio and Juthathip Niramonpisan, is the longest and most complete version of the story. This version takes cues from the original 2008 series, but with the catch that Bloody Bunny is controlled by the restless soul of the human girl, and Mumu is the same situation for the girl's sister. Upon awakening in her new body, she sets off on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge, hunting down each of the "Dark Bosses" who lead the armies of dolls that rule the world.

A hack-and-slash video game based on the series, Bloody Bunny: The Game, has been released for the Nintendo Switch on March 11th, 2021. It is an adaptation of The First Blood.


The series as a whole provides examples of:

  • Depending on the Writer: Bloody Bunny and Mumu's genders have been switched around a few times. In the original flash short Bloody Bunny (2008), both were genderless as shown in the old site's description here. In Bloody Bunny: Don't Be My Enemy, they were male with Mumu's name being changed to Nitoru. In Ayupan x Bloody Bunny, Bloody Bunny was referred to as a male. In Bloody Bunny: The First Blood, the most recent and final incarnation, they were changed into females with Mumu's name being changed back as well as a more feminine redesign for her.
  • Living Toys: Most characters are one of these. In First Blood they're the end result of Soul Jar's that are made from humans. Almost all of them are evil.

Ayupan x Bloody Bunny provides examples of:

  • All Part of the Show: The duo's first major fight with the Vampire Lord's minions is considered a bunch of flashy effects for Ayupan's performance. When the Lord proper appears before them in his powered up form, their fight happens just as Ayupan's supposed to perform an encore.
  • An Ass-Kicking Christmas: Episode 1 takes place during one of Ayupan's Christmas concerts. At first Bloody Bunny does all the fighting as he tries to prevent Ayupan's concert from being ruined, but the idol joins the fight soon after and uses her singing to support Bunny in battle.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: While the first episode, with the exception of the music, is spoken entirely in Thai, the second episode and on feature the cast speaking in English.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even though the Vampire Lord’s a vampire and also the antagonist, he does not drink people’s blood because he finds it unsanitary.
  • Magic Idol Singer: Ayupan serves this role. She's explicitly shown taking self defense classes, but her main power is her singing voice, which also boosts Bunny's performance in battle as well as obstructs villains.
  • Meta Origin: Virtually everything can be traced back to Ayupan's magical singing. Bunny activated from just hearing her, while the Vampire Lord was unsealed from the same music.
  • Lighter and Softer: While there's still plenty of action to go around, this installment is certainly more lighthearted than the ones that came before and after it.
