|Bonnie just before her true nature is revealed to the player.|
Bonnie (known as Bunnie while using her killer persona) is the titular main antagonist of the 2022 horror game Bonnie’s Bakery, the main antagonist of its prequel video A Day With Bonnie and the main villainous protagonist of its prequel DLC Hunt.
She is the titular founder and owner of her bakery and lives in a town populated by anthropomorphic animals. Although she appears as a sweet and affable young woman, Bonnie lives a double life as a psychotic serial killer who kidnaps the townspeople, brings them to the basement of her bakery and murders them before baking their remains into her food products to sell to the unknowing residents of the town to keep her business afloat. She later comes under suspicion from the unnamed Protagonist, who is later kidnapped and forced to find a way to escape the bakery.
Bonnie is a woman with short blonde hair wearing a pink bow and shirt, a green skirt and yellow shoes. She also wears a green collar with a carrot.
When under her alter-ego of “Bunnie”, she dons a white rabbit mask with orange eyes.
Seemingly an innocent and all-loving girl, Bonnie is in truth a psychopathic animal abuser who has no problems with kidnapping and killing others for the sake of her own bakery, which seems to be the only thing she truly cares about. While aggressive to those who try to escape her, she acts kinder to the compliant ones, not attacking them on sight. She also seems to somewhat enjoying killing, humming in her basement as she turns them into ingredients. While usually acting calm, Bonnie can become aggressive after having a bad day of work, going as far as killing all her prisoners.
Despite this, Bonnie originally was kind and sweet when she first opened the bakery. However, her optimism and cheerful demeanor began to diminish once she began to face the risk of closing up after very few customers showed. This, combined with her inability to save an injured rabbit that appeared near the bakery, sent Bonnie over the edge as she then cooked the rabbit in one of her recipes, causing her to seek more meat.
The DLC teaser also seems to show that she has a sadistic personality, at least judging by how gleeful she is when getting into her killer persona “Bunnie”.
Bonnie does seem to have a competitive side, displaying jealousy when people start attending a different bakery during the DLC. Bonnie also does not seem register the people she’s hunting as individuals, and seems to dehumanize them by referring to them as “it”. Bonnie shows no remorse for her victims, particularly when it comes to those supporting her competitors.
That being said, the DLC does show that in the present day, Bonnie does have standards, particularly around children. She states that she does not use any school children for ingredients, and seems genuinely shocked to discover that one of the mouse children outside of the school has gone missing. She also seems to find children adorable. She also seems to show some empathy towards the Town Hall Cat having to deal with her first victim. Bonnie also tends to leave businesses alone, so long as they don’t start selling pastries.
Long ago, Bonnie’s family mysteriously disappeared, leaving her to live on her own. How long she had her family before they went missing is unclear.
Sometime in the past, Bonnie opened her bakery to follow her dreams, but said bakery didn’t go well as she expected. Customers were rare, and despite her best efforts, her attempts to advertise fell flat. She did, however, meet Bear, who she describes as the closest thing she had to a family ever since hers disappeared.
One day, an injured bunny showed up to her, and she took care of them as best as she could, only for the bunny to die. Deciding to cook their remains, Bonnie started having hopes for her dream once more when the smell attracted customers.
Starting to kidnap the townsfolk, Bonnie killed and used their remains for their recipes, becoming quite successful. One day, one of the hostages she kept alive trapped in her basement tried to escape.

Meanwhile, the townsfolk decide to go see the rest of the horror that was hiding inside the bakery.
Secret End: Pirate
During the night segments of Hunt, Bonnie can enter a room with a pirate in it, alongside a singular chest. Should she steal the contents of the chest, a single coin with a code will appear in the basement. Entering the code on the back of the coin into the safe will cause the protagonist to flee, tracking down the pirate. The pirate, outraged by Bonnie stealing earlier, helps the protagonist sneak into the bakery at night and kill Bonnie. Later on, the two, alongside all of Bonnie’s captives, roam the seas together.
Secret End: Moose
Should Bonnie listen to all of the Moose’s dialogue during the daytime segments of Hunt, the protagonist later on can use the numbers to form a code. After inputting the code, the protagonist flees before encountering the Moose, who was heading to the bakery.

Bonnie has many roles in the DLC, particularly as the playable character in Hunt. Each day revolves around Bonnie stalking her target of the day in order to learn their nightly routine before kidnapping them and stuffing them into her basement.
Throughout the four days, it’s revealed that another bakery has sprung up, taking away customers from Bonnie. This, combined with investigations against her bakery, has led to Bonnie targetting four individuals in order to gather more ingredients for her resturaunt.
