Monty Python's Killer Rabbit Scene is Hilariously Recreated by a Minecraft Player

A new user felt obliged to replicate the classic scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail after discovering a deadly rabbit in Minecraft.

A new Minecraft user has successfully recreated the killer rabbit scenario from Monty Python and the Holy Grail in the game. Replicas of well-known intellectual properties have become a hallmark of the enormously popular sandbox game, even ones that span whole Minecraft worlds, such as a massive reproduction of Star Wars’ Tatooine.

Apart from players, Minecraft’s AI-driven entities known as mobs populate these vast blocky landscapes. Players can encounter a variety of monsters, ranging from neutral to hostile, with rabbits typically falling into the former category. However, a feature peculiar to the Java Edition of the game might bring a particularly nasty version of the mob into a player’s area. The Killer Bunny can only be summoned with a precise order, but it poses a serious threat to more than just players once released. This red-eyed murderer has been a part of Minecraft for a long time, but it has recently inspired one new player.

As soon as they realised they could summon this deadly swarm, Reddit user Atillion felt compelled to recreate the legendary Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog sequence from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The Reddit user matches the whole build-up and combat with the white-furred creature using sophisticated editing and identical audio from the film. Atillion confessed in response to one of the comments on their post that they were surprised by the tremendous favourable response because their primary motivation for getting into Minecraft was to bond with their child.

Noob here. Once I realized you can summon the Killer Rabbit, I knew I had to make this. I’m sorry for what I’ve done. from Minecraft

Even though Atillion humorously apologised for their creation, they accidentally brought everything full circle. The Killer Bunny was designed from the start to be a direct homage to its Monty Python cousin. The Caerbannog Killer Rabbit has also appeared in other areas of popular culture, including a suitable tribute in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.

There are few situations where a single construction is not the centrepiece of a showcase, even though there are numerous outstanding recreations from the Minecraft community. Players will be reminded by videos like Atillion’s that, as simple as the game may appear, there are so many options for what may be done in-game that it might feel very daunting. Minecraft is all about being creative, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it in the way the game suggests. Several hidden layers can only be revealed through human inventiveness, resulting in unique creations like a Minecraft Clue game. The possibilities in those blocky universes will continue to develop as long as technology improves.

Minecraft is now available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android, and iOS.
