This article is about the critter. For the pet, see Bunny Pet. For the town pet, see Town Bunny.

Bunnies are harmless critters that can be caught with a Bug Net and do not normally interact with the player in any other way, except in that they can be killed by both players and enemies. They have 5 health and usually serve as ambient entities in Terraria.

Bunnies usually spawn only in the middle-third of the above-ground world, and only on ordinary Grass, though they can also spawn near NPCs in other locations. Bunnies are less likely to spawn in Hardmode and can be spawned by using a Bunny Statue attached to a Lever, a Pressure Plate or a Switch. During a Blood Moon, or when hit with Vile Powder or Vicious Powder, Bunnies will turn into Corrupt Bunnies or Vicious Bunnies, which have much more health and are aggressive.

During the Halloween seasonal event, Bunnies spawn wearing Green Slime costumes, during Christmas, Bunnies will spawn wearing Santa costumes, and during a Party, Bunnies can spawn with Party Hats.

On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, Nintendo Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader, the Gold Bunny has a 1 in 150 chance of spawning instead of a normal one. These gold critters sell for 10 each. Gold critters are rare creatures which are detected by the Lifeform Analyzer. Visual identification is helped by the sparkles they emit when alive in the world.

Most naturally spawned Bunnies can be caught with a Bug Net, and carried in the player's inventory (or placed in storage). If a critter caught with any Bug Net is taken from inventory and "used" (placed), it is again released into the environment at the cursor and behaves as usual.

On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, Nintendo Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader, Bunnies can be sold to any NPC vendor.

All caught Bunnies can be crafted into Bunny Cages to create animated display furniture. Once crafted, the critter cannot be released. A captured Bunny can also be used to craft an Explosive Bunny to be fired from the Bunny Cannon.

On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, Nintendo Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader, Critters spawned from statues cannot be caught with the Bug Net; attempting to do so will cause the critter to disappear in a puff of smoke.

Gem Bunnies spawn near towns in the Cavern layer.
