A player in a cabbage field.

The 2009 April Fools event was released on 1 April 2009. If a player tried to pick a cabbage from the Falador cabbage patch, the cabbage would come to life, say a random phrase (such as "All hail Brassica Prime!") and hop around, or the player would pick a cabbage seed. The players could tap, kick, or catch cabbages. Once they were caught, they could be used as a weapon, thrown to other players, or be eaten. Players needed to have Accept Aid on and both hands free to toss a cabbage. Draynor Manor cabbages did not work; no other cabbages moved or got the tap, kick or catch options (including the cabbages from the Lumbridge cabbage patch). However, all cabbages, with the exception of Draynor Manor cabbages, could be wielded. The "wield" option for cabbages was apparently removed when the Easter event began.

There was talk of a hidden message. Mid-afternoon, a Jagex Mod confirmed it was this: Those who were bored enough to kick one of the bouncing cabbages from the cabbage patch north-west of Draynor Village all the way to Oo'glog were thanked and rewarded with a cabbage by the one and only Brassica Prime!

Another joke appeared on the official forums when Mod Emilee said the seagull was added to the Hunter skill and that you could catch it with a butterfly net.


  • When trying to enter the Soul Wars lobby with a cabbage equipped, a message appeared saying "Cabbages are not trusted in this arena".
  • The quote "This is not the hidden message you are looking for" could be a spoof on a line in the Star Wars series, "These are not the droids you are looking for."
  • When this event was released, all cabbages received a graphical update.
  • Since 8 April 2009, all of these April Fools cabbages have been removed and those in players' inventories/banks became normal cabbages.
  • Brassica Prime is a reference to the 2007 April Fools joke when he was mentioned and was an enemy for the fake update.
