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.)

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]].) 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.

* ''VideoGame/ThemsFightinHerds'' plays with this with the Deer of Reign. While they're pampered and fussed over as pets by their elves, they are depicted as just as capable in a fight as the other ungulates of Fnum.

* The leader of TheWildHunt in ''{{Literature/Moonflowers}}'' wears a deer-skull mask with red eyes, [[RuleOfScary explicitly to terrify his victims.]] Turns UpToEleven as he uses an ''Irish Elk'' skull to hunt Alima--the Irish Elk is a prehistoric relative of modern deer, known for its massive size and equally gigantic ten-foot antlers. He also uses his mask [[UseYourHead as a weapon to ram/gore his opponents.]]
