I also imagine the rainbow prince as a rabbit but ... The irony of the matter is that he is usually an enemy of rabbits in the book. Well, he does not want El-ahrairah
  make pranks and eat lettuce where you should not.     :rabscuttle    :prince-rainbow
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I have always considered Prince Rainbow to be a human figure because he always seemed to be trying to stop El-Ahrairah from raiding gardens and doing other rabbity things that are a pest to man. He seemed to control dogs and is a rather challenging figure to El-Ahrairah, which I don't think that a rabbit would do.

King Darzin, I always imagined to be a hare, or some other kind of lapine as Rabscuttle was able to disguise himself as one of the children.
