In Leaping Lizards, Morton Koopa Jr. sneaks into the palace, vandalizing it and transforming the Mushroom King into a rabbit with his magic wand. Luigi's attempt to change the king back with the same scepter only makes matters worse, changing the king from a normal bunny into a human-sized one. In a later book, Unjust Desserts, Magikoopa sneaks into the palace garden with some enemies he had shrunk by shapeshifting into a rabbit.
Super Mario series
Super Mario 64
In Super Mario 64, a yellow rabbit named MIPS can be found in the basement of Mushroom Castle. If caught, he will give Mario a secret Power Star. MIPS is found twice in the game: the first time after collecting 15 Power Stars, and the second time after 50 Power Stars.
Super Mario 64 DS
In Super Mario 64 DS, rabbits feature much more prominently. They are found throughout the castle grounds (and their locations vary from character to character). The designated rabbits for each character have a specific color - yellow for Yoshi, pink for Mario, green for Luigi, and orange for Wario. If caught, they would unlock mini-games for the player to play in the Rec Room. For the rabbits to appear, the player must first talk to the Toad in the Rec Room.
Special Glowing Rabbits need to be caught to unlock a white door in the character door room, behind which is a secret Power Star. They will randomly appear only after the player has collected 50 Power Stars in place of ordinary ones. After catching eight of these rabbits, they will no longer appear. In the Korean version, the mini-games were removed, and therefore the Rabbits do not appear. At the beginning of the game, Yoshi must find the rabbit with the key, located in the hedge maze.
Super Mario 3D World
Rabbits appear again in Super Mario 3D World, where they can again be chased and caught to receive prizes. Normal rabbits hold power-ups and coins, but rabbits surrounded by a green light have a Green Star. Larger variations known as Big Rabbits also appear and will give Mega Mushrooms or Green Stars to the players when caught. Rabbits can be held in place with the GamePad, allowing the player to catch them more easily.
Super Mario Odyssey
In Super Mario Odyssey, gray and white rabbits wearing top hats can be found in a few kingdoms, such as the Wooded Kingdom and the Lake Kingdom. They will hop away if approached; attacking them will cause it to hand over a Power Moon. These rabbits resemble the ones from Super Mario 64 DS and Super Mario 3D World in terms of body structure and proportion, as well as general purpose. Most kingdoms only feature one of these rabbits, if any; Bowser's Kingdom is an exception, with two; however, the second rabbit only offers coins when captured. After hitting the Moon Rock in the Sand Kingdom, three will appear there, with two giving varying amounts of coins and the third giving the Power Moon; this one is faster than most and has a wider range, and is probably intended to be caught using Jaxi.
Many rabbits can also be found on the Dark Side of the Moon, in a location known as Rabbit Ridge. These rabbits wear top hats, and are entirely white. These rabbits also do not run if approached. They are ruled over by Madame Broode, an enormously-obese anthropomorphic rabbit, who is accompanied by her minions, the Broodals. It should also be noted that these rabbits' hats cannot be removed, possibly to prevent Mario from potentially capturing them.
Mario Party Advance
In Mario Party Advance, Rabbits appear in the minigame Grabbit, in which the player must catch a certain amount of them with the given time limit. They also appear as toys in the minigame Bunny Belt, where the player needs to press the buttons in the right order to make a bunny toy. If they press in the wrong order, the toy will have a rat's body or a pig's snout.
