Harengon 5E: Rabbitfolk from Wild Beyond the Witchlight

Harengon 5e

While I love a trip into the Feywild as much as the next person, one of the most exciting parts of Wild Beyond the Witchlight is the new character options. One of those options is a new rabbit race known as Harengons. learn all about them with our Harengon 5E Guide.

Harengon 5E Guide

The Harengon are a mobile DND bunny race with the ability to get out of a tight spot. While they make natural rogues, the strengths of this race fit well with any class.

Harengon Lore

Harengon are humanoid rabbitfolk that originated in the Feywild. Over time, they have spread throughout the other planes of existence thanks to their spirit of freedom and love of travel.

Rabbitfolk 5E Traits

The traits of the Harengon are a strong fit thematically. They focus on a rabbit’s keen senses and jumping ability to create a character that is mobile, quick, and able to avoid danger. Unlike with most characters, you can choose to be either small or medium and your walking speed is 30 feet.

Ability Score Increase

The Harengon does not have a set racial bonus for ability score increases. Instead, when determining your character’s ability scores, increase one score by 2 and increase a different score by 1, or increase three different scores by 1.


Hare-Trigger is a simple but effective trait. Each time you roll for initiative, you add your proficiency bonus to that roll. This is great for strength-based melee characters who would ordinarily lag in initiative rolls. As we mention in our Paladin 5E guide, offsetting low dexterity is a nice option when it is time to roll initiative.

Leporine Senses

This gives you proficiency in Perception. It is also a very thematic choice for the long-awaited DND bunny race.

Lucky Footwork

You get a bit of fey luck each time you fail a dexterity save. For every failed Dexterity saving throw, roll 1d4 and add it to your total. You could change a failure into a success if this pushes you over the DC. You can use this on every dexterity saving throw unless you are prone or your speed is zero.

Rabbit Hop

Rabbit Hop can get you out of a jam, especially at higher levels. Using your bonus action, you can jump a number of feet equal to 5 times your proficiency bonus. When you jump in this way, you do not provoke attacks of opportunity. You can use this a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus unless your speed has been reduced to zero. While great in combat, this has a variety of uses, especially as you level.

Wrapping up our Harengon 5E Guide

That’s it for our Harengon 5E guide. This rabbitfolk race might be overshadowed by the Fairy 5E race in Wild Beyond the Witchlight, but it is a solid addition that fits well with most classes. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
