* FalseFriend: [[spoiler: Gobo fatally assumes that because he was rescued by Man, they would all be a friend to him. Unafraid and ignoring Bambi's and Faline's urges to flee, he approaches a hunter in the meadow, only to be shot at moments later. Gobo, realizing what's happening, tries to run but it is too late. Poor Gobo.]]

* StrangerInAFamiliarLand: [[spoiler: Gobo. When Bambi and Faline reunite with him after long thinking him dead, Gobo explains his absence: During the past winter siege by Man, Man found the injured young Gobo, nursed him back to health and was treated like a member of his family, and released him back into the wild in spring. Now sporting a horsehair braid around his neck, Gobo regards Man as a personal friend and no longer recognizes the cautionary practices the rest of the forest dwellers use, much to their - and Bambi's - consternation.]]

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Thumper's sisters for some reason aren't present during the final scene where Feline's new child is born let alone shown as adults. Instead we see Thumper and Miss Bunny with there newborn children. They were last seen eating greens with Thumper when they encounter Bambi for the second time and don't show up for the rest of the film.

* BrickJoke: While Bambi and friends are practicing roars, Flower sincerely says that he thinks turtles are scary. [[spoiler: Just near the end, Ronno has an unfortunate run in with a turtle clinging to his nose, which Flower saying it proved his point.]]
* CallForward: When Bambi and co. first meet Ronno, he nervously asks what the hurry is, "Forest fire?"
** Near the end, Friend Owl grumpily mentions Twitterpation when [[spoiler: Bambi and Faline kiss]]. When Flower asks, Friend Owl says he'll tell him about it when he's older. Before that, Friend Owl remarks to Bambi that he almost didn't recognize him without his spots, similar to a scene midway through the first film.

--> '''Bambi''': I wish mother was here ''instead of you''!
* CharacterDevelopment: While the midquel humanizes the characters more than the original, it also makes the characters personalities a little more rounded and three dimensional than previously. Bambi becomes more assertive, but without losing his demure qualities. Thumper becomes more of a BrattyHalfPint with a MotorMouth, and the Great Prince becomes less cold and distant and more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. Even characters who barely had any characterization in the first film, such as Faline, Flower and Ronno are fleshed out in it.

* ColdOpen: Besides that the film literally starts off in the dead of winter, it takes place ''immediately'' after the midway point in the first film where Bambi's mother died, setting up Bambi moving in with his father, and Friend Owl persuading him to take care of Bambi until he can find a suitable doe, taking several minutes before we even get to the title.

* ContinuitySnarl: A minor one, but just near the end when Bambi loses his spots, Friend Owl remarks that he almost didnt recognize him without them. It's meant to be a CallForward to Friend Owl meeting a grown up Bambi in the original film, but it makes it seem like he forgot he ever saw Bambi without spots in the first place!

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Bambi willingly puts himself in danger by distracting a pack of hunting dogs away from Mena and having them chase him instead.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Ronno and the Porcupine, the latter of whom is exclusive to ''Bambi II''. In the porcupines case, he's just very grumpy and territorial, while Ronno is an out and out bully.
* KickTheDog: Ronno does this to Bambi just near the climax of the film, [[spoiler: deliberately goading him into a fight by openly mocking him by insinuating that he's such an embarrassment to his father that he would "give him away" to another doe. [[BerserkButton Bambi does not take it well.]]]]

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Friend Owl eventually finds a suitable doe to raise Bambi far away, but unintentionally drops the news to Bambi and his father at the worst possible time, just when they started bonding, which causes a brief rift between Bambi and his father before he sends him away. [[spoiler: Bambi does reconcile and accept his fate, even before his father sends him off though.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: If Ronno hadn't goaded Bambi into fighting him, which in turn unintentionally caused Mena to fall into a hunters trap and prompt Bambi to rescue her by distracting a pack of hunting dogs at the risk of his own life, Bambi wouldn't have reunited with his father and friends.]]

** The midquel only extends these hardships to greater heights! Bambi [[spoiler: is forced to cope with the loss of his mother and he tries to earn the love of his father, only to be given away to a stepmother (on the grounds that his father believes that he has no business raising children, ironically). He also ends up getting stung by a porcupine, ''and'' he risks his life to save his would-be-stepmom from a pack of hunting dogs, and after a long chase scene it ends with the dogs defeated...and him falling off a high cliff. Despite early impressions, he survives and finally earns the [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments love and affection of his father, who finally accepts Bambi as his child, without any words being spoken.]] The film also ends with Bambi getting an accidental smooch from Faline, and his father showing him where he and Bambi's mother first met.]]

* ShooOutTheClowns: Moments before Bambi mother is shot. The last we see of Thumper as a kid is after Bambi and him are done ice skating and tells Bambi "That he should go home now." in a very worried and nervous tone. This also sets the tone for the oncoming scene.

Added DiffLines:

** This is as nitpicky as it gets, but several times male northern cardinals (the red birds) are shown together, including at one point a whole flock. Cardinals are so territorial they will relentlessly attack even their own refection, so this is very unlikely.

** Series/SaturdayNightLive TV Funhouse has one with Bambi and Disney's reputation for their direct to video sequels, with ''Bambi 2002'', [[HilariousInHindsight which surprisingly was conceived several years before the real Bambi II came out.]] SNL's ''Bambi 2002'' however includes Bambi's mother being alive, Bambi riding a skateboard, rapping, performing BulletTime and fighting terrorists, and Thumper being voiced by Creator/DavidSpade. A picture of the "Rapping Bambi" also made a brief cameo in another TV Funhouse skit, specifically one taking jabs at the infamous Disney Vault (it appears in the background, hanging from a wall).

* ProductDisplacement: Unlike its four predecessors in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, none of the [=DVDs=] or Blu-Ray Discs contain a logo for Walt Disney's then-distributor, [[Creator/RKOPictures RKO Radio Pictures]]. Currently, the only home video version of the film to contain its RKO logo is the 1997 ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection'' laserdisc.
