Attack of the Killer Rabbits: Attention, Writers!

Writers have a deep bag of tricks to use, creating stories and characters. One of these is the Killer Rabbit.

"Killer Rabbit"
Television Tropes & Idioms

"...It's small. It's fluffy. It's adorable. And if you get on its bad side, your death will be painful, but swift.

Related to but distinct from Fluffy The Terrible, the Killer Rabbit is any monster that's far more dangerous than it looks....

The Killer Rabbit is (almost) part of the real world, as a former American president learned:

"President Carter and the Killer Rabbit"
The Presidents Blog (January 17, 2008)

"Jimmy Carter faced many problems when he was President of the United States of America. Problems such as a poor economy, hostages in Iran, and Billy Carter kept him busy. However, one that he (and the Secret Service) failed to anticipate was a vicious Georgia swamp rabbit...."

But, be careful when using the Killer Rabbit. You probably don't want to have something like this on your record:

"Night of the Lepus" (1972)

Or, "Giant mutant rabbits terrorize the southwest!!"
