Mysidian Rabbit from Final Fantasy VI
Mysidian Rabbit (ミシディアうさぎ, Mishidia Usagi?), also known as Lagomorph, Mindia Rabbit, Dread Beast, or Rabbit Medium (口寄せの術, Kuchiyose no Jutsu?, lit. Summoning Technique), is a recurring ability and creature in the Final Fantasy series.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Mysidian Rabbit, also known as Mindia Rabbit, is an Animals ability for the Ranger job class. It appears randomly when the player uses the Animals ability, and has no effect. The higher the caster's level, the smaller the chance is to get Mysidian Rabbit, due to the way the game calculates which skill to use. The game draws a random number between 0 and the caster's level, and Mysidian Rabbit is called only if the number is 0.
Mysidian Rabbit (Lagomorph in early English releases) appears as one of Setzer's Slot abilities whenever he loses a combination. Its Spell Power is 10, and it restores a small amount of HP as well as removes the Blind, Poison and Sleep status effects. It does not ignore Magic Defense, characters with a high Magic Defense stat are healed for less. It also does not damage the undead.
Thumpity thump thump, thumpity thump thump...
A Mysidian Rabbit appears when a Ninja executes the Rabbit Medium Ninjutsu action. Rabbit Medium serves as a failure ability and will only occur when the player inputs a non-existing mudra combination. When the ability is used, the Mysidian Rabbit will appear and hop atop of the player's head.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
The rabbit is named after the recurring mage town Mysidia, and the Mysidian Rabbit is dressed in standard Black Mage attire. Both likely allude to the common concept in modern magic of "pulling a rabbit from the hat".
Lagomorph is a word for the order of animals to which rabbits and hares belong.
