WarioWare series[edit]

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$![edit]

Space Hares appear in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! in Orbulon's story. As their ship passes by Orbulon's UFO, they notice its distress signal. A Space Hare lowers an elevator into the UFO to rescue Orbulon. During gameplay, they serve as the life counter for microgames. Failing one causes a hole to appear under the leftmost Space Hare and cause it to fall into space. Gaining a life causes one to rise back from a hole. After seeing Orbulon, they drop him back into the UFO. They dance with Orbulon during the intermissions. The spaceships of both Orbulon and the Space Hares appear in Space Escape, one of Dribble & Spitz's microgames.

In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, the Space Hares have their own minigame in Wobbly Bobbly where up to four players have to keep away from a larger Space Hare in a girl's wig. For the Staff Roll, they are seen on the elevator doors. After flipping over the letter panels and revealing the staff names in each section, they nod. At the end, the wigged Space Hare clings onto the "T" in "The End".

WarioWare: Twisted![edit]

Alien Bunnies (called as such for the first time) show up during Orbulon's story in WarioWare: Twisted! as his minions. He asks them to massage him which causes him to fall asleep. After 30 minutes, the two Alien Bunnies are also asleep. They are only awakened by the ship warning them of a black hole. After Orbulon's UFO gets eaten and spat out by Space Monster Gabriel, the Alien Bunnies swim through space.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

In WarioWare: Touched!, the Alien Bunnies appear in various places. Two appear floating in space in the ending of Dr. Crygor's story when he flies into space. Mike goes to a planet inhabited by many Alien Bunnies in his intro cutscene; after Dribble & Spitz come to return him home in the ending, the Alien Bunnies wave goodbye as he leaves.

Game & Wario[edit]

In Game & Wario, the Alien Bunnies make a brief appearance during the epilogue of Captain Wario's story as they fly through the sky. They also make a brief appearance in the tutorial for Sketch, where they are shown playing the game with Orbulon.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

In WarioWare Gold, the Alien Bunnies appear in all of the Wario Bowl-related cutscenes. Two Alien Bunnies also appear during the intros of the Mash League, Twist League, and Touch League, where Wario explains how to use the buttons, gyro control, and touch screen. In the cutscene "I Love Gold!", the Alien Bunnies attempt to ask Wario for some gold, but fail to get his attention.

An Alien Bunny holding a box appears in the intermissions of all the Mash League characters' stages, including Wario Deluxe. The player can control it to collect coins.

Two Alien Bunnies show up during the intro of 5-Volt's stage, where they appear with Mr. Sparkles on TV and hold frying pans.

WarioWare: Get It Together![edit]

In WarioWare: Get It Together!, five Alien Bunnies can be seen in the shot of Diamond City in the opening. Alien Bunnies can also be seen in a field with Doris 1 when Penny flies off with the Jet Tank One in the intro to Penny's Mix. They appear in Orbulon's character gallery as well.

Rhythm Heaven series[edit]

Space-Rabbits appear in the Japan-exclusive game Rhythm Tengoku for the Game Boy Advance, its internationally released sequel Rhythm Heaven for the Nintendo DS, Rhythm Heaven Fever for the Wii, and Rhythm Heaven Megamix for the Nintendo 3DS. As these games were made by the same team who develop the WarioWare games, many characters from both series cross over in this manner.


WarioWare Gold character cards[edit]

  • Rank CThese critters are the perfect staff at Wario's tourney. They're not cheap, but they really, er... hop to it.
  • Rank BThey prefer to feed on fresh carotene and buy it by the log at home. Every bit of currency goes into carotene.
  • Rank AThey are beyond adorable, but they aren't into warm fuzzies. Their faces also don't emote all that much.
