The Thunder Hare (also refered to as Thunder Rabbit) is a powerful rabbit enemy with great control over lightning. It made its first appearance in Etrian Odyssey IV.
Thunder Hare (Etrian Odyssey IV)Edit
Thunder Hares are first encountered in the hidden area of Misty Ravine B3F. Its mastery of thunder magic allows it to rain lightning on the party from the safety of the back row. Should it suddenly find itself on the front row, however, it will panic and do nothing.

Thunder Rabbit (Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold) Edit
Thunder Rabbits are extremely dangerous enemies encountered on the secret area of the Ancient Forest.
In combat it will always start the fight on the back row while raining thunder attacks upon you with the powerful Heaven's Bolt skill, which deals heavy volt-elemental damage to random targets, and hits 5 times. This attack is powerful enough to kill most characters in two hits, sometimes even one-shooting them. The amount of hits also ensures that you won't be able to block the attack with Volt Wall, unless you use more than one Walls per-turn. The enemy is also immune to head bind, meaning that it is impossible to seal the attack. Heaven's Bolt can only be used from the back row however, if the rabbit is forced to move to the front line, it will no longer use the powerful attack.
Ways to counter this include the aforementioned multiple volt wall strategy, as it will block two hits per character, instead of just one. Using skills and items that reduce volt damage also helps, as well as inflicting fear on the Thunder Rabbit, as the enemy is vulnerable to the status, and killing it while it is scared will net you its conditional drop. Other status effects, such as panic and sleep also work, but are not as effective. If you have a gunner, you can also use Shell Shock, which can stun the creature while it is on the back row. However, do keep in mind that this enemy is resistant to stun, so a character with high luck and skills that improve status effects may be required.
