Bunny Link in the A Link to the Past manga
|Game(s)||A Link to the Past|
|Non-canon Appearances||A Link to the Past manga|
In A Link to the Past, Link transforms into Bunny Link, a fluffy pink rabbit, upon entering the Dark World. This is because the Dark World changes people to reflect their true nature. Although it is never mentioned, Link may have become a bunny because he has the gentle nature and compassion of a rabbit. In this form, Link is completely defenseless and cannot use any of his weapons or his shield. He can retain his original form after obtaining the Moon Pearl from the Tower of Hera.
In certain dungeons, he can be transformed into a rabbit by coming in contact with rotating, golden, star-shaped objects called Rabbit Beams. However, this change wears off after a few seconds or after being hit by an enemy.
