This article is about the current Easter Bunny. For previous ones, see Easter Bunny
The current Easter Bunny, also known as Easter Bunny Jr, was first introduced in the Easter 2009 event. He is the son of Harvey, the previous Easter Bunny, and was initially a very lazy rabbit before taking his father's job. Since then, he has appeared in the 2010, 2011, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2020 Easter events, and also received a small reference in the 2012 Easter event.
During the 2009 Easter event, players had to persuade Easter Bunny Jr to take over his father's job so his father could retire. However, he showed himself to be very lazy and would rather spend his time sleeping. By fixing up the Egg Plant, which had fallen into disarray after Harvey went on holiday, the player was able to convince Easter Bunny Jr to take over his father's job, after which he put on one of his father's spare suits, officially becoming an Easter Bunny.
In the 2010 Easter event, now having taken over his father's job, he needed help distributing Easter celebrations to the various different races and cultures of RuneScape, as he had been modernising the factory and had ambitious plans that he was unable to fulfil. With the player's help, he was able to meet the order and get his plans back on track.
In the 2011 Easter event, the Easter Bunny could be found arguing with Jack Frost at the annual battle between Spring and Winter. For players who fought on the side of spring, he gave out bronze hatchets and tinderboxes to help cut down the evil holly trees.
During the 2012 Easter event, the Evil Chicken and Chocatrice claimed that the Easter Bunny had met with an accident and was in hospital recovering. The details of this accident are contradictory, as one claims that he fell down White Wolf Mountain while the other claims that he fell into a pit of lava. Nevertheless, he was apparently able to hide eggs around Gielinor before the accident occurred.
During the 2015 Easter event, imps had overrun the Easter bunny's hole in attempt to get one of the pet jadinkos that the Easter bunny was breeding. The player had to use the egg machine to breed the perfect jadinko for Ringleader Vyvyan so the Easter bunny could get back to his work.
Sliske and the Chocolate Factory[edit | edit source]
During the 2016 Easter event, the Easter Bunny is suspicious of Sliske's chocolate factory and he needs the player to investigate it. He tells the player that he found a chocolate butterfly, but could not catch it and asked the player to. Once the player grabbed the butterfly and used the ticket, the Easter Bunny shrunk down onto their shoulders as his arrival would be extremely suspicious.
Suspicious of Sliske's motives, he tells the player how to get rid of the other tourists without arousing suspicion on themselves. When they reach the T.A.R.A. room, the Easter Bunny is surprised that he never thought of a chocolate duplicator before. When Sliske reveals that he turned the tourists into wights, the Easter Bunny tells the player that they should give them an overdose of the chocolate to return them back to normal. He stays behind with the other tourists after Sliske escapes and asks the player to dismantle Sliske's machines before they fall into the wrong hands.
During the 2017 Easter event, the Easter Bunny is lamenting about his father's absentmindedness leading to the mislaying of several presents. He hands the player a list of cryptic notes made by his father and asks them to track the presents down. After obtaining divine eggs from Falador, Draynor, Dwarven Mine, Taverley and Burthorpe, the note reveals that the Easter Bunny set up the trail in order to test his son and leaves him a final message. He thanks the player and hands them a reward for their help.
The Guilded Eggstravaganza[edit | edit source]
During the 2019 Easter event, the Easter Bunny, along with Duke Horacio and King Roald, throws an Eastertime Fete as a celebration of both Easter and Spring. Several guilds are also invited to take place in a competition to use their skills and show off their guild's best way to represent celebrating Easter. The winning guild would be awarded a mysterious egg. However, several of the guilds' apprentices need the player's help to complete their entry. The player helps the Cooks' Guild Apprentice make a lemon pie, the Fishing Guild Apprentice make a swordsharkahuna, and the Crafting Guild Apprentice make a Gilded imperial egg. The player then chooses which guild wins the competition, although when the mysterious egg turns out to be alive, the Easter Bunny awards it to the player instead.
During the 2020 Easter event, imps have stolen the Easter Bunny's eggs, and the player must find and return them to him.
