Arcade Bunny (JP) is the host of Nintendo Badge Arcade. He is an eccentric character that updates the player on what badges they can obtain as well as any other changes. He seems to share a lot of traits with the StreetPass Bunny. Since his first game, he has made a few cameos in other Nintendo properties as well as a major appearance as an Assist Trophy in the Super Smash Bros. series.

Personality and Appearance

The Arcade Bunny is well dressed pink bunny. He is wearing a black vest with a pin saying arcade with a red button-up shirt with white sleeves and blue jeans. He carries a pack on his waist likely carrying additional plays. His default appearance is a simple expression with a quirky smile with one tooth sticking out. However, he is quite prone to changing his expression.

Some of his more eccentric expressions result in him totally changing his build. In some instances, he turns into a serious buff dude that poses while in others, he turns into a realistic rabbit

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Arcade Bunny makes his first appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When summoned, he stands still but brings out a crane claw that will drop and pick up opposing players like the Beetle or Boss Galaga. Likewise, the player can struggle out if they have low enough damage. The claw will try again until either the count runs down to zero and it successfully pulls up an enemy. The Arcade Bunny cannot be KO'd unlike some other Assist Trophies like Waluigi or Alucard.


Since the character is fairly new, he has not made too many minor appearances outside of the Arcade. His first cameo outside of his original game was in Super Mario Maker as a Mystery Mushroom Costume.
