The March Hare is no longer enjoying the Mad Tea-Party in his garden. The March Hare, along with the Dormouse, has fallen victim to an insane experimentation of the Mad Hatter. He, with his friends, were having a Mad Tea-Party with Alice when the Liddell house caught fire.
American McGee's Alice Edit
He can do little now but lament his predicament and offer Alice some paltry information on how she might be able to confront the Hatter. The March Hare reveals that the Mad Hatter has developed a keen sense of punctuality (similarly to the behavior of the White Rabbit) and that he will certainly not be late to check on his experiments at six o'clock.
Alice: Madness Returns Edit
The Hare takes on a much more antagonistic role in Alice: Madness Returns. He and the Dormouse have taken control of Hatter's domain and used it to build the Infernal Train. Compared to the Dormouse, the March Hare is more articulate and refined, speaking with a thick Scottish accent. His legs are replaced with mechanical legs (although his left foot is still in its original organic state), has screws grafted in his ears, has an iron plate on his head, his left arm is replaced with a mechanical arm with a large hand of the clock replacing his hand and his right eye is bugged out of its socket with a monocle magnifying the eye.
He controls the Cranking Up and Pressing Down sector of the new industry, using Dodos and the Hatter's legs in a system akin to hamster wheels in order to power his section of the factory. When Alice arrives, the Hare tries to kill her with a variety of crushing mechanisms, but she fights through the traps and manages to overload his machinery by freeing the Dodos. With a path to his control room opened, the March Hare retreats into the ceiling, allowing Alice to free the Hatter's legs.
After the Hatter has been completed, the Hare and Dormouse appear in a huge mecha to fight Alice, but the mecha is destroyed almost immediately by the Hatter, killing both of them just before Hatter's domain collapses.
Between the two games, the March Hare's appearance differs extremely due to his disposition. In American McGee's Alice, he is less mechanical and features less metalic abnormalities. However, he is extremely beaten and worn from the experiments that took place on his body. Generally, he has the appearance of a slightly more "humanoid" brown hare.
In Alice: Madness Returns, his body is amended with many mechanical limbs and parts due to the torture that underwent in the previous game. He appears to be wearing a white glove, similar to many interperatations of the White Rabbit. He is also wearing a white shirt with a red tartain waistcoat and a pair of glasses.
- It seems that the March Hare has a mechanical right arm and his real left arm with his right leg mechanical and the foot still organic in American McGee's Alice, he has it reversed in Alice: Madness Returns. He also has developed a Scottish accent and an antagonistic attitude missing from the first game. The differences from the first game may be tied into the Cheshire Cat's statement that "The rules have changed." Alice has changed since the first game, and Wonderland simply changed with her.
- Interestingly, the Hare and Dormouse seem to mix up their similes when threatening Alice. The March Hare announces that he will make Alice feel 'like a lobster that's been tossed into the boiling pot', although his primary methods of attack involve crushing. Likewise, Dormouse tells Alice that he's going to crush her, even though the Dormouse uses tanks of superheated metal to kill Alice.
