* {{Disneyfication}}:
** Even with the inclusion of Bambi's mother dying, the film's tone is significantly lighter than the novel's (it was written for adult audiences), which was much darker and more brutal, including graphic death scenes.
** First off, in the original novel Bambi and Faline are cousins, but in the film it was changed so that they're not blood related. However, Faline's mother is called "Aunt Ena" for some reason.
*** Weirdly enough, the fact that Bambi and Faline are cousins has been included in a few storybook adaptations of the movie.
** Thumper, Flower, and Friend Owl were created entirely for the film - Walt wanted to tone down the dark, brutal mood of the novel in the adaptation to allow it to appeal to a wider audience, so he brought Bambi's friends in as comic relief to make the film LighterAndSofter.

** As with many characters of Disney Animated Canon, Bambi and other characters from the original film frequently cameo as audience members in ''WesternAnimation/{{House of Mouse}}''.
** Bambi's mom can also be seen as the deer Shere Khan is hunting in his introductory scene 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.

Man is the second highest-ranking Disney villain in ''"AFI's 100 Heroes and Villains"'', surpassed only by the Queen from ''Disney/SnowWhite'', and is also the only villain on the entire list who is never seen.

It's based on ''Bambi, ''[[Literature/{{Bambi}} Bambi, a Life in the Woods'' Woods]]'' (''Bambi, Eine Lebensgeschichte aus dem Walde'') a 1923 novel by Austrian author Felix Salten.



[[folder: Tropes the original novels provides examples of]]
* AllegoricalCharacter: The hound and fox near the end of the novel.
* AnAesop: Faline's brother Gobo (who is exclusive to the novel) appears to have been killed by a hunter in the same winter Bambi's mother died only to return some time later as a full grown deer, and it turns out a human family had saved his life. (He was dying of starvation by the time he was taken away.) But as a result he had lost his fear of humans. [[spoiler:The next time the hunters came to the woods, Gobo was the first to go. This is Felix Salten's commentary on keeping wild animals like deer as pets.]]
* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler:Most notably, Bambi's mother, Gobo and the Prince at the end. Several minor characters also die.]]
* ContinuityNod: In ''Bambi's Children'', [[spoiler: Gobo's death at the hands of man is brought up early on.]]
* 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.]]
* 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.]]
** {{Downplayed|Trope}} in ''Bambi's Children''; while the animals are still afraid of man and understand human ways dimly at best, humans are portrayed in a more nuanced light with good and evil individuals.
* KidsAreCruel: A minor antagonist of ''Bambi's Children'' is an unnamed kid who steals his dads hunting rifle to poach fawns. The Gamekeeper catches him in the act and sends him off, but he returns later and is about to kill Bambi's son Geno, only for Bambi himself to intervene by ramming the kid behind, sending him running back home in fear and pain.
* KissingCousins: First cousins Bambi and Faline become a couple in adulthood.
* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: Unlike the movie, the paternity of any of the deer is uncertain. While in the movie, Bambi was explicitly to be the son of the Old/Great Prince, in the book there is nothing proving that the two are related at all, although they do come to have a father/son relationship. The closest to confirmation given on such things is only an implication that the pair of fawns Bambi meets at the end of the novel are his own.
* NatureIsNotNice: The novel does not gloss over the cruel parts of animal life.
* ProtagonistTitle: Bambi is the protagonist of the first novel.
* {{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 nuanced light, with one of them being a generally benevolent gamekeeper [[note]]whom the animals call "the brown He"[[/note]] who is concerned for the welfare of the animals (even taking in Bambi's daughter and nursing her back to health after she is attacked and injured by a fox) 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''.
* SpinOff: ''Perri: The Youth of a Squirrel'' is a story about a red squirrel set during the events of ''Bambi'', and Bambi himself makes a cameo appearance. Perri subsequently appears as a named supporting character in ''Bambi's Children''. Disney made a live action adaptation of ''Perri'' for their True Life Adventures series in the 1950's.
* 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.]]
* UnnamedParent: Bambi's mother.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Bambi with Karus and Ronno. Both were friendly to Bambi when he was a juvenile; but when Bambi matures enough to become a rival for does, these two drive him off whenever they see him. After Bambi finally fights and soundly defeats them both, they don't dare come near him anymore. [[note]]According to Bambi, anyway.[[/note]]

* CallForward: When Bambi and co. first meet Ronno, he nervously asks what the hurry is, "Forest fire?"
