“Not too often you get a job doing what you love most, am I right?”
Arcade Bunny, Nintendo Badge Arcade

The Arcade Bunny[1] is the mascot of Nintendo Badge Arcade. In the game, he is an employee of the badge arcade of the same name. He is a short, anthropomorphic rabbit with pink and cream fur that fades into red at the tips of his ears. He has beady, black eyes, a pink nose, red eyebrows and a buck-tooth. He wears jeans, brown shoes and a two-tone button-down sweater over a red shirt. He also wears a coin dispenser and a name tag reading "ABCDE". The Arcade Bunny is very casual, gregarious and easily excited when it comes to talking about his interests or explaining something, although he will also apologize earnestly for animated behaviour.


Nintendo Badge Arcade[edit]

In Nintendo Badge Arcade on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, the Arcade Bunny acts as the game's guide, providing information and news to the player. He works in the arcade the game takes place in, a position he openly loves. The Arcade bunny, an enthusiastic gamer, admits that he works at the arcade so that he can play the games as soon as they are released. He is also passionate about the badges up for play in the arcade and often alludes to his boss, telling him to upsell. The Arcade bunny is featured in a number of his own series of badge sets as well, being offered under special promotion times.

After the player first participates in Nintendo Badge Arcade, every day, starting at 2:00 a.m., the Arcade Bunny may initiate small game-related chatter to promote a new set of badges. After this chatter, he gives the player one free play, which is one attempt to get a badge or more. In the meantime, though, the Arcade Bunny makes comments on the themes of the current badge catchers.

Super Mario Maker[edit]

The Arcade Bunny was planned to be a character sooner, having all his sound files in-place as "Pink Rabbit" before they were removed for a time.[2][3]
