Unusual hares that are born-from, and permanently attached to, heads of lettuce. They can be randomly encountered in Squaresoft's 1994 Final Fantasy VI Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) roleplaying video game [said title was also later ported to the Sony Playstation (1999) and Nintendo Gameboy Advance (2006/2007)]. There are three known species of these floral fauna: Leafer/Leaf Bunny, Rhobite/Chippirabbit, and Nohrabbit/Desert Hare. These hardy animal/plant hybrids can obtain the energy they need to survive through both photosynthesis and foraging (and, yes, the rabbit portion of the creature is not above nibbling on its own leaves if nothing else is available), allowing them to survive in a broad range of environments and conditions where less versatile organisms would suffer or starve. Leafers and Rhobites prefer to dwell in grasslands and forests, while the Nohrabbit, having the misfortune of living in Kefka's post-apocalyptic World of Ruin, has adapted to life in the harsh desert. All three variants reproduce like, well, rabbits, providing a reliable and plentiful source of both meat and greens for the human population and other monster species. If pressed, these critters can deliver painful bites with their incisors, but, in comparison to many of the other horrors that can be found wandering about in Final Fantasy VI, they pose little threat and can be easily slain by even the most green of adventurers.
