Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAce: The Great Prince is as gallant and badass as he was in the first film, but has inner struggles due to the recent death of his mate and his concern over how to raise his son.


Added DiffLines:

* StockFootage: Though the entire cast are given new voice actors for the Interquel, the recreation of the first film during the ColdOpening uses clips of Bambi and the Great Prince's original actors.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Bambi's upbringing becomes this as a result of his mother's death, due to tradition and his standard stoic disposition, his father is completely unadjusted to raising him, [[ParentsAsPeople leading to a much more contentious relationship between father and son.]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Bambi and Thumper. This was already heavily implied in the first film, but it's in full throttle here. Thumper does everything to help Bambi connect with his father and greatly prefers his company over his sisters.

* BerserkButton: Ronno intentionally pushes Bambi's to anger him into fighting him, mocking his father's disapproval and intent to send him away. [[BewareTheNiceOnes It works very 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: The film focuses on Bambi's transitioning of such as a fawn, starting off a timid, bumbling child crippled by fear, to stealthy and formidable in outdoing prey and bullies. This comes to a full display when he risks his life to save a trapped doe from hunting dogs.
