Professor Barranco 3 is, as one can tell from his name, a third clone of Professor Barranco and is the supreme commander of all the Rabbids. He is a major character that appears as the main antagonist of Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, a minor antagonist in Raving Rabbids: Travel In Time and a major character in Rabbids Invasion. He is Rabbid with one eye blue and one eye red for unknown reasons.

Backstory

Professor Barranco 3 was, just like the other Rabbids, created through cloning thanks to an unknown mix of chemicals. He spawned from the first Barranco and most likely got his intelligence along with another unknown Barranco, causing him to become only a little bit smarter than the others, while Barranco 3 used his intelligence to dominate over his race and start his own obsession of controlling by taking over everything and everyone in sight.

Appearance

In Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 he has a red and blue eye, originally his red eye lacked a pupil, he was also shorter than many of the other Rabbids and had a deeper voice as well.

His red eye would later be given a pupil and he was also given an army helmet with four silver stars along with a scar in Rabbids Alive and Kicking.

His design was later simplified in Rabbids Invasion dropping the army helmet and scar as well as making him the same size as all other Rabbids.

He wouldn't make another reappearance until Artificial Stupidity which was a short made by the "Rabbids Team" and was part of a collaboration between 10 artists, in the short he was given one gold tooth and his left ear was pierced with one gold ring. The phrase "THUG LIFE" is written across his stomach, and he is shown wearing a ski mask with holes cut for his ears as well as upside-down cross drawn across his back.

Personality

In the Raving Rabbids Games, he is shown to be a cruel dictator who lets nothing get in his way, causing his subjects to be afraid of him. In the (TV series), he is a lot nicer to his minions but is still rude. Other than that, he is very persistent and doesn't like Rabbids who turn out better than him. Barranco 3 also has a really big ego, being a huge control freak. It is this obsession controlling others that makes him want to conquer other planets and lands.

Appearances

Games

He first appeared in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, as the main antagonist where he was seen leading the Rabbids towards their invasion. His base was infiltrated by Rayman, who fooled the commander by disguising himself as a Rabbid and performing a Rabbid scream.

He returned as the villain in Raving Rabbids Travel in Time during the ending cinematic, where he is coming up with a new scheme to take over the universe, which is to change the course of human history by using a washing machine that travels through time, and in that scene Professor Barranco 3 does not look happy to his minions. However, his plans are foiled by a blue-underweared  Rabbid who literally pulls the plug on one of the machines and accidentally destroys the other ones in the process, much to the commander's frustration.

Barranco 3 made another appearance in Rabbids Alive and Kicking, as the main antagonist once again, where he and the scientist Rabbid where trying to find a way to reproduce the Rabbid community in order to begin a massive invasion. He does so by throwing a cow into the mix, beginning the invasion. Oddly enough, the commander does not appear in any of the mini-games. He does, however, host the party game mode.

He is the secondary antagonist of Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV show video game.  

Rabbids Invasion

In the episode Rabbids Say Cheese as the main antagonist in which he has the other Rabbids imprison and hurt a dog and sabotages a man's photo taking so he can get his turn. He tries to take a photo of himself on the photo booth and forces the others to get him a coin (for the picture taking) but doesn't let them take a picture with him, he later manages this and puts his picture in front of his face and mocks the others, however, Bob The Dog (who he trapped in a shopping cart previously) comes to him, the others disguise themselves by taking previous pictures of Barranco 3 and putting them in front of their faces backward, Barranco turns to see why. Because of this, Bob sees his picture (which wasn't backward) and recognizes him, Bob then attacks him. He is redesigned and acts more immaturely and childish.

He also appears in Elevatorus Rabbidinus as an anti-hero, and in Schnoz Rabbid as the secondary antagonist, where his mean nature causes a Rabbid to turn on him and overthrow him. He manages to get his leadership back at the end.

He appears in Super Rabbid were he is the main protagonist. The Rabbids thought he was a superhero. After getting injured so many times, A police officer gives him a mask. He then walks to the Rabbids, who thinks he's a lady.

In Flight Of The Rabbids he is the anti-hero again, he tries to learn how to fly, which will grant him fame. After numerous tries, he ends up on a light pole and then falls off of it.

In Rabbidmobile he was the main antagonist. Two of his Rabbid helpers become annoyed by him because he keeps forcing them to take him places with a skateboard and plungers (used for rowing). They find and get in a Car without letting him in. After a long fight, while driving it, they destroy it. They then use the skateboard again for transportation.

He was at first the main villain of Hypno Rabbid but then his minions turned the tables by hypnotizing him.

In Rabbid Mozart, he was the main antagonist again. He competed with a Rabbid who got hit on the head badly and became better than him in everything. However when the Rabbid made a rather disturbing picture of him and the other Rabbids. He drew a circle around him and forbade him to pass it. In the end, the Rabbid became normal by drinking a potion that the made. He told him to come back at the circle but he didn't listen and started hitting him with a sugar stick. After that, all Rabbids started hitting him with other stuff as he ran away, while they followed him. Finally deciding to not listen to him anymore. This is his last physical appearance in the series.

He makes a small cameo in Safe Deposit Rabbids, where the painting from the previously mentioned episode is seen.

Rabbids Short Stories

In Artificial Stupidity, he is seen robbing a vending machine with a Rabbid wearing a sort of bib. He is shown to have multiple dangerous weapons, including a grenade launcher and a laser flower gun. After shooting a police car with a laser gun, he alerts his accomplice to get the car. He's shown to be violent and destructive, assaulting police vehicles and officers while his accomplice starts the car. When the car starts, he's shown to ride on the roof, continuing his tirade of destruction. At the end of the episode, after flirting with Kiko, the artificial intelligence to the self driving car, he is flung off the car to somewhere off-screen.

Abilities

Other than great intelligence, he is able to climb a building with nothing else than his own hands, as seen in the Rabbids Invasion episode Schnoz Rabbid. He can also sing.

Relationships

Rabbids

He is sometimes shown to care about their safety, but sometimes overreacts and hurts them.  In any case, he cares for them, and they care for him, as they were willing to make him a funeral after they thought he died. It is unknown how he treated his cloning predecessors.

Humans

He hates the entire human race and is more than willing to wipe them out of existence.
