Bugs Bunny is an antagonist who is originally from Looney Tunes. He appears in the episodes Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout, Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle, MEGA MAN Games, Spawn Games, and Garfield. Bugs Bunny is portrayed by Mike Matei.


Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout[]

While the Angry Video Game Nerd is reviewing the game Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout for NES, Bugs Bunny appears, with carrot in hand. The Nerd, surprised at first to have Bugs Bunny in his house, proceeds to beat him up (possibly because he stars in a "shitty fucking game"). Throughout the video, the Nerd was playing the game, with Bugs Bunny bothering him constantly, by appearing randomly and kept on saying "What's up Doc?" at points when the Nerd was very frustrated with the game, which lead to the Nerd beating him up each time. After the Nerd finally beats the game, he fully takes out all his frustration at the game on Bugs, and pummels him to the ground, then shits on his face.

Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle[]

Two years later, Bugs Bunny returns. He hits the Nerd with the Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle game for NES. Surprised, the Nerd proceeds to hit him, only to have Bugs block his punch and hit him back, apparently having become a much better fighter. As the Nerd plays the games that Bugs gives him (more like forcing/tricking him), he gets-up to fight him in his frustration (even having Kyle Justin join in for breaking "his" couch and guitar), succumbing to losing to Bugs in multiple Looney Tunes-like ways (like the "Duck Season, Rabbit Season" gag, Giving him a gift-wrapped dynamite stick, hitting him with a custard pie, etc.)

Bugs even gets back at the Nerd for shitting on him by returning the favor in the form of baseball-sized rabbit shit. While playing Woody Woodpecker in Crazy Castle 5, he makes a strange comparison of Bugs Bunny with Woody Woodpecker. This was proven when the Nerd was able to tear Bugs' head off, revealing Woody Woodpecker under it. Due to a bomb Woody lit, the Nerd ends up in Hell, alongside a hysterically laughing (and knife holding) Woody Woodpecker. The episode ends with the Nerd holding up a sign which says "Fuck!". However, both the Nerd and Bugs manage to escape back to the land of the living.

Mega Man Games[]

When the Nerd returns to the present-day after visiting his 2004 counterpart, he finds that his show is now being hosted by Bugs Bunny who is wearing his Nerd outfit and learns that he quit his show and Bugs has been filling in the void ever since. While at first seeming to accept Bugs' comments that he would never have to play another bad game again, he punches Bugs in the stomach and fights him, destroying a shelve of games and punching Bugs through the wall as he puts his white button-up shirt back on and sits in front of the camera to resume hosting his show.

Spawn Games[]

After Violator ratted the Nerd out to Malebolgia for cheating through the Spawn games, Malebolgia sent them both back up to play against each other in Spawn: In the Demon’s Hand, along with allies to make sure they don’t cheat: respectively R.O.B. for the Nerd and Bugs Bunny (with Woody Woodpecker’s head) for Violator. The Nerd and R.O.B. win, and both R.O.B. and Bugs disappear in a puff of green smoke as Violator rages.

Suddenly, this, R.O.B., the Nerd, and Violator is combined into a demon and scares Tony at the Cinemassacre store.


Towards the end of the review, the Nerd talks about how Garfield Labyrinth for the Game Boy is loosely connected to the Crazy Castle series. This leads into the actual character appearing once again. When Bugs Bunny enters the Nerd's room, he sits next to him on his couch, while making the longest "nyeeeeeeeeehhhhh!!" sound (before following that with the standard "What's up, Doc?"), much to the enraged annoyance of the Nerd. The Nerd angrily and hesitantly drinks a rolling rock, and balls his right fist, making it look like he's going to hit Bugs. In actuality, the two perform a friendly fist bump instead and seemingly turn the situation into a friendly one, fitting the moment with the Christmas theme of the episode.

The Nerd then hands a controller to Bugs, letting him play the Nintendo. The Nerd then quickly drops his friendly facade and begins to beat up the rabbit as the credits appear. The Nerd decapitates each head off of Bugs' body with a punch, revealing the heads of Woody Woodpecker, Mickey Mouse, Egon Spengler, Kid Klown, Roger Rabbit and finally Garfield.
