Rabbids are rabbit-like creatures that appear in the Rayman universe. The name is a portmanteau of 'rabid' and 'rabbit', though in the games, they are often referred to as Bunnies. They primarily appear in a spin-off series known as Rayman Raving Rabbids. They are seen as 'anti-mascots' to Ubisoft.
In the main series, not much is known about where the Rabbids had originally come from. Rabbids Go Home suggests that they do not even know themselves. However, at an early point in the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman Raving Rabbids, Ly the Fairy explains that the Rabbids were once peaceful creatures in Rayman's world that had gradually been bullied by other creatures, therefore going bad and taking their pain out on the entire world. The back cover of the main game also suggests that the Rabbids used to be peaceful but had turned bad, though the game doesn't explain how. This explanation of the Rabbids' origin was also used in official Ubisoft press releases regarding the original Rayman Raving Rabbids platformer, before that game was scrapped.
