Headgear that hugely improves your jump and movement abilities. True to its name, the hood comes with a pair of cute, fuzzy ears. On the right characters, they're as cute as can be, but on the wrong ones, they're...scary. Of course, that adds to the item's charm. The sudden speed increase you get is responsible for more than a few self-destructs, so be careful.

The Trophy Description states that the sudden speed increase is responsible for multiple Self-destructs. This is because Sonic wearing a Bunny Hood makes him extremely fast, even faster than Wario-Man's Wario Bike which is also stated responsible for Self-destructing.
