Hood the Rabbit has become quite popular for its ability to complete most levels without the aid of other units. To accomplish this, the player should upgrade the Rabbit early, as soon it is unlocked, and focus on the skills Cultivation, Leadership, Skill Aura, and Haste Aura. Improving Aura Power can be beneficial, and War Aura is necessary for later levels.
With the proper upgrades, the strategy is simple enough; summon as many Rabbits as possible, and keep the front line within aura range. The hail of arrows will stop most enemies from advancing, and will often kill groups with a single volley. This is also a suitable tactic for defeating most early-game bosses with minimal effort. In most cases, new Rabbits will be summoned faster than old ones can be killed, with the Rabbit's low production cost and high summon speed contributing to building an army quickly.
However, should be noted that Hood has the lowest HP of all units, being one-shot by most enemies later in Chapter 2 onwards. If the player does not have all of the upgrades needed for the Rabbits to hold the line on their own, summoning one or two Defensive Tortoise will allow the player's Rabbit horde to build substantially.
Additionally, for extra late-game support, the player can summon Penguin the Wizard to supplement the Rabbit army, further delaying enemy advance and dealing additional damage. If food supply permits, a horde of Penguins is both stronger and even more effective than a horde of Rabbits, at a much higher cost to the player.
Alongside Penguin, Hood can be used for a farming strategy against bosses. It works mostly effective against the Zombie King from the Mind Forest or the Mummy King from the Forest of the Dead, since they continually summon minions to attack.
The strategy relies on keeping a specific amount of Rabbits and/or Penguins to attack the summoned minions and the backup enemies without killing the main boss, allowing the player to collect many items, gold and experience points in a single run.
Equipping rings that boost item drop rate, gold and EXP are valuable. It's advised to also equip certain maces, such as Fist of Fury Mace, Wind Mace/Lightning Mace/Turn Undead Mace, to help with crowd control. Heal Mace is also valuable in later stages of the game to keep tanking units up.
