* 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 laserdisc.

* TheDreaded: Humans, full stop. Every single animal is absolutely terrified of them, and with good reason: they will hunt and kill any animal, big or small. One particularly chilling scene that really hammers this in is when a quail goes crazy with fright that the hunters were coming towards her and tries to fly away. She becomes their first victim.

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Bambi's mother is shot dead by hunters when she and her son are looking for food in the winter snow. A whole generation of kids was traumatized. Now, movies for kids should not be all sanitized pink happy affairs. But the death of a parent is quite disturbing to any six-year-old. This one is fairly famous for all the denial associated therewith. It gets worse. Originally, Bambi was going to go back later, and find his mother ''lying in a pool of blood'', but the idea was scrapped, both because it was too cruel and because it wouldn't make sense for a hunter to score a deer and then just leave it in the woods.

* TheCameo: Bambi himself actually makes an appearance in person in the crowd of toons in the ending of Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit, and in one scene early in the film, Thumper is mentioned by Roger himself [[spoiler: to be his uncle]].
** Also, [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit JudgeDoom]] was originally planned to be [[spoiler: the killer of Bambi's mother in a shocking revelation. It ultimately never made it into the final film unfortunately.]]

** Bambi's mom can also be seen as the deer Shere Khan is hunting in ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', to the bottom right in the first frame of the prologue to ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', and her and Bambi both shows up during the song "Someone's Waiting For You" in the first Rescuers movie. All of these appearances are the animation of she and Bambi eating grass before the infamous death scene.

* EnclosedSpace: the story is set entirely in the boundaries of the forest, which the characters never leave.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Thumper's father, who never once appears on-screen in either films, even though Thumper's mother constantly brings up one of his {{Green Aesop}}s if Thumper is ever giving her trouble or causing it. [[NothingIsScarier Man]] is also included, except in ''Bambi's Children'', where they precense is open and clear.

* {{Jerkass}}: Bambi's father, mainly in the original film. He says barely 5 sentences to his son throughout the entire film and ''all'' of them make him sound distant, demanding and utterly disappointed in his son. The midquel still has traces of this, but make it a plot point that his character softens throughout the film.

* TheLostWoods: The forest of both films.

* MoodWhiplash : "Your mother can't be with you any longer. Come with me, my son." This line cuts directly to the most happiest song of the movie.

* NeverSayDie: The line, "Your mother...can't be with you anymore." Also in the midquel, when the Great Prince outright restrains himself from saying "killed" or "die". This is TruthInTelevision, as many people find it hard to apply these words to people they love. Especially if it was recent and sudden.

* PaleFemalesDarkMales: {{Zig Zagg|ingTrope}}ed. Faline plays this trope straight as both a fawn and a doe, while Bambi's mother {{avert|edTrope}}s it, being colored more or less the same as The Great Prince. Then there are several background bucks that are colored lighter than the others as well.

Both the book and the movie are a ComingOfAgeStory that follows the titular character, a young deer (a roe deer in the book, [[AdaptationSpeciesChange a white-tailed deer in the movie]]), from birth to adulthood in the forests of Germany (in the book) or Maine (in the movie).

* HumansAreCthulhu: The animals believe that humans are some kind of gods. Near the end, the Prince [[spoiler:shows Bambi the corpse of a man who was shot by someone. Bambi then realizes that humans aren't all-powerful beings, but mortal creatures like the animals.]]
** Subverted in ''Bambi's Children''; while the animals are still afraid of man, they are portrayed in a more positive light, although a couple of the antagonists are human.
* KidsAreCruel: A minor antagonist of ''Bambi's Children'' is an unnamed kid who steals his dads hunting rifle to poach fawns. A park ranger catches him in the act and sends him off, but he returns later and comes close to killing Bambi's son Geno, only for Bambi himself to intervene by ramming the kid behind, sending him running back home so scared [[ScareEmStraight that he gives up hunting for good.]]

* {{Sequel}}: ''Bambi's Children'', which offers perspective flips between the animals and human characters, and is LighterAndSofter than the original book. Mankind is also portrayed in a much more positive light, with one of them being a benevolent park ranger who is concerned for the welfare of the animals (even taking in Bambi's daughter and nursing her back to health after she ends up shot) and even fights off a poacher and a cruel kid who stole his fathers rifle to illegally hunt fawns. Perri the Squirrel, who appeared in his own book that was a midquel to Bambi, is also a minor character in ''Bambi's Children''.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Ronno in both films. In the novel, he's actually Bambi's friend and has a larger role in the story. In the first movie, he only appears in one scene and is portrayed as a very one dimensional, non speaking villain. The midquel expands his role, but also reveals he was a cowardly bully and AttentionWhore who is an out and out enemy of Bambi.

* SomethingElseAlsoRises: During the Twitterpated scene. First Flower the skunk becomes red and stiff as a board upon his encounter with a lady skunk; as he falls over the sound effects are certainly wooden. And then there's Thumper, whose romantic encounter leads to stiff ears, a stiff body, repeatedly appearing/retracting claws, and a madly thumping foot.
