Introductory Tagline

Bucklers are Rabbid enemies in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. They are large Rabbids that carry shields and blast guns. These guns fire in a cone-shaped arc, doing increasing damage based on how close their targets are. Their shots are capable of destroying Giant Brick Blocks and inflicting status effects. Their shields protect them from frontal weapon attacks, forcing the heroes to attack from their unprotected sides and back; alternatively, they can bypass the shield with dashes, Team Jumps, and splash damage attacks. Bucklers can also use an ability similar to Yoshi's Super Chance, giving themselves and nearby allies an aura that guarantees a critical hit on their next attack. However, Tropical Bucklers instead have the technique of Protection, shared with Valkyries and Princess Peach, reducing damage dealt to nearby enemies through partial absorption.

Variants[edit]

There are four Buckler variants, one for each area apart from Ancient Gardens. As an exception, several Sherbet Bucklers do appear in Challenge 8 of said world.

  • Sherbet Buckler: Encountered in Sherbet Desert, this Buckler has 195 HP. Its gun, shield, and scarf are cactus themed with darker stripes. The shield also has ice and a fan on it.
  • Spooky Buckler: Encountered in Spooky Trails, this 295 HP Buckler appears to be undead, with a pale body, glowing blue eyes, and black accessories.
  • Lava Buckler: The final Buckler variant is encountered in the Lava Pit, with a charred appearance, glowing orange eyes, orange accessories including a Bowser Jr. scarf, and 445 HP.
  • Tropical Buckler: The Buckler variant for Donkey Kong Adventure. It wears a feathered headdress resembling a skull and shoulder plate resembling bones, and 170 HP. They can be encountered before their actual introduction in Sherbet Desert.
