Skills & Modifiers[edit]

A dire rabbit uses its Dexterity modifier for melee attack and damage rolls as well as for Jump skill checks.

A dire rabbit gains a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Escape Artist, Hide, Move Silently and Survival. A dire rabbit gains a +8 racial bonus on Jump and Listen. A dire rabbit has 5 skill ranks in Jump.


In combat, a dire rabbit kicks with all its might, preferring to knock pursuers down and make a hasty getaway. They'll fight to the death to defend their young or mate.

Gnaw (Ex): A dire rabbit's teeth are sharp and designed to chew through tough bark and woody plants. A gnaw attack bypasses hardness of 5 or less.

Rabbit Kick (Ex): A dire rabbit that hits with its kick attack may initiate a free bull rush attempt, gaining a +2 bonus as though charging and an additional +4 bonus from Improved Bull Rush. If a dire rabbit exceeds the defender's opposed check to allow the dire rabbit to move the defender back additional spaces, the defender is instead knocked prone and is dealt 1d6 bludgeoning damage for each 5 points by which its check result is greater than the defender’s check result.

Rabbit Run (Ex): A dire rabbit ignores difficult terrain while running. A dire rabbit can make a bull rush or overrun as part of a run action. A dire rabbit that fails its overrun attempt is only ever made flat-footed until the start of its next turn instead of being knocked prone.

Low-Light Vision (Ex): A dire rabbit takes only half the penalties associated with viewing under conditions of dim illumination.

Leap of the Lepus (Ex): A dire rabbit is an excellent jumper. When jumping, roll a d10+10 instead of a d20 for its Jump skill check.

Training & Mounts[edit]

A dire rabbit can be trained to serve as a mount trained for war for a Small rider. Such trained mounts cost 400 gp. A dire rabbit can serve as a Small paladin's special mount.
