The {{Trope Namer|s}} (unrelated to the term used by some critics of vegetarianism to describe [[StrawCharacter how they see]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute the vegetarians' philosophy]]) is a [[{{Fictionary}} term]] used offhand to criticize this trope in Douglas Coupland's novel ''Generation X''. What's especially bizarre is the fact that ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' is often accused of spreading the idea that "deer are innocent". If you feel this way, ''please'' go and watch the movie again. In actuality, the film does not shy away from the "Deer can be Bastards and, Really, Sometimes You Can't Blame Them" / "NatureIsNotNice" world of Felix Salten's original novel (which, needless to say, is a bit closer to reality). Bambi himself [[TookALevelInBadass goes from]] cute little fawn to {{Badass}} Prince who kicks (antlers, rather) butt for [[ThePowerOfLove love]].

As far as how this trope has affected RealLife... let's... not even go there. (If you must, take it to this here [[Headscratchers/WhatMeasureIsANonCute Headscratchers page]]. We don't want this to turn into [[Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike Complaining About Hoofed Mammals You Don't Like]].)

* UsefulNotes/AztecMythology applies [[BondCreature nagual]] to most of its deities, and yes, one has a deer; Itzpapalotl, goddess of among other things, motherhood and the stars. So, straight example, right? [[SubvertedTrope Haha]], [[HumanoidAbomination no]]. The other things she's a goddess of are war, death, and the same [[LightIsNotGood stars]] she's a queen of regularly try to eat the sun during an eclipse so they can invade Earth. Part of the whole HumanSacrifice thing was to keep the Obsidian Butterfly ''far, far away''.

* ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'' features a recurring [[TheObiWan shaman character]] who claims to be the forest god Herne; he wears the head of a deer as a cowl.

Deer are a menace when cars are in use. They're "edge animals," suited to environments where forests transition into grassland, like suburbia; they also can't gauge the speed of anything going over 40 miles an hour, ''but they think they can''. And, they have no particular fear of cars. Between these three factors, deer kill more people than any other large land animal: all those traffic accidents add up. (Drive carefully in the evening and at night.)

We don't want this to turn into [[Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike Complaining About Hoofed Mammals You Don't Like]].) It is worth noting that deer cause more human deaths than any other large land animal, due to their cute propensity for mimicking speed bumps on highways (so please drive carefully especially around dusk and at night.) Also, if deer happen to give you problems in your backyard, there are [[http://newfs.org/publications-and-resources/barring-bambi.html easy ways]] to thwart them. Try planting sages and onions. The latter will keep squirrels from digging at your tulips too. Alternatively, put in TheThingThatGoesDoink. [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle The more you know!]]

Perhaps it's because they are the most common large animal one is likely to run into if one goes out in the wild. Perhaps the buck's antlers reminds us of a king's crown. Perhaps it's just because they were (and still are in many places) a staple of humanity's diet in the Northern Hemisphere and therefore became a key figure in folklore (CarnivoreConfusion is nothing new). In any case, in older fiction, deer are often employed as a symbol of nature in general and forests in specific. All well and good.

* There's [[http://deer-s-revenge.software.informer.com/ Deer's Revenge]], also a parody of the ''Franchise/DeerHunter'' series that also swaps the roles of predator and prey.
