The Rub Rabbits!, known in Japan as Aka-chan wa Doko Kara Kuru no? or Where do Babies Come From? (赤ちゃんはどこからくるの?), is a minigame compilation developed by Sonic Team and published by SEGA for the Nintendo DS handheld video game console. It was first released in Japan on October 20, 2005, and was later released in North America on February 7, 2006, and in Europe on February 10, 2006. It is a prequel to Feel the Magic: XY/XX.


The Rub Rabbits features an all-new protagonist, love interest and female villain. As in the original Feel The Magic: XY/XX, the protagonist sees the love interest in passing, and instantly becomes smitten by her. However, 11 other men also develop an interest in her at the same time, and the hero has to compete with the other men to gain her attention.

At one point early on in the game, the hero lends a hand to another girl who is inconvenienced by the rush of men chasing after the love interest. Even though this was just a brief, chance encounter, the other girl becomes instantly infatuated with the hero, and begins doing everything in her power to steal him away for herself. Her efforts include brainwashing the other men to continue interfering, building various robotic creatures to try to separate the lovers, kidnapping the hero, and poisoning the girl.

After the credits, it is revealed that the hero of the game becomes the leader of the Rub Rabbits, with the other men becoming the members of the troupe.
