Rabites, known as Rabi (ラビ) in the Japanese versions of the games, are cute, fictional, rabbit-like creatures appearing as a common enemy in the series since its beginning. The Rabite has become a sort of mascot for the Mana series. Rabites are most commonly simply minor enemies, but some variants are "superboss" characters and even friendly units and pets.
Rabites have appeared prevalently in several pieces of Mana merchandise, including plush dolls, cushions, lighters, mousepads, straps, telephone cards, and T-shirts.
Physical Description[edit | edit source]
The Rabite resembles a limbless, one-toothed rabbit with large ears that curve upward and form a point at the tip and a round, puffy pink tail. Rabites move by hopping along the ground. They are most commonly yellow colored, but there are also variants of different colors, such as pink, lilac, black, green, and white
Affinities[edit | edit source]
Being usually the first enemy encountered in every game, rabites don't have particular elemental affinities nor do they have weaknesses. As for their natural habitat, they are almost always roaming in grassy plains or lightly wooded areas.

Rabites in other media[edit | edit source]
Rabites are also mentioned in Final Fantasy X-2 with an accessory comically named "Rabite's Foot" which increases a character's luck statistic. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance also mentions Rabites, where they are listed in the description of one of the game's optional missions as an endangered species due to being poached for good luck charms.
Notes[edit | edit source]
One of the first accessories available in Secret of Mana is the Rabite Cap, presumably made from a skinned Rabite. Donning it gives the wearer an extra +5 protection level.
