Bunnio is a character in Spirit Tracks.[2]

Biography

Bunnio resides at Rabbitland Rescue, a station in the Forest Realm. As the only human inhabitant of the region and owner of the rabbit haven, he rewards Link with Treasure whenever he brings him a certain number, and sometimes pattern, of lost rabbits from the overworld of Hyrule, finally granting Link the Swordsman's Scroll after retrieving and safeguarding all 50 rabbits (10 from each of the five realms).

Later in the game, Bunnio's wife, who once lived with him but now lives alone in Castle Town, will question his whereabouts, and rightly so, as he has been pursuing his rabbit-rescuing dream halfway across the realm for some time. Reuniting her with her husband at Rabbitland Rescue will yield Link a Force Gem that illuminates extra connective Spirit Tracks in the Forest Realm.

Trivia

  • Bunnio remains unnamed the North American English version of Spirit Tracks (and in few other localisations of the game as well). Instead, he is referred to as the "Rabbitland Rescue man."[3] The character's Japanese name, ブニオ (Bunio), was translated as "Bunnio" in the English edition of Hyrule Historia,[2] hence the name's origin.
