* FauxSymbolism: The scene where Bambi goes with his father after learning about his mother's death symbolizes the end of his childhood and innocence. This was exactly what Disney was going for with that scene.

* FirstInstallmentWins: While ''Disney/BambiII'' is at least considered to be a decent or even good follow-up by fans, the original film is considered an animation milestone and is usually the one everybody remembers. Thought in fairness, the original [[ToughActToFollow left really big shoes to fill]], so any follow-up was inevitably gonna fall short, no matter how good it would've been.

* UnfortunateImplications: Try not to think too much about why part of "[[LoveTheme I Bring You a Song]]" is playing during Bambi's first romp in the meadow [[ParentalIncest with his mother]].

* PeripheryDemographic: It's well documented that his film was popular with, of all people, men shipping out to fight in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Pictures of the characters were common as the nose art of planes and tanks. A few munition factories even stamped pictures of Thumper to blockbuster bombs.
* SignatureScene: The death of Bambi's mother.

bombs. And to top it off, Donnie Dunagan, Bambi's original child voice actor, would grow up to become a Marine Corps {{drill sergeant|Nasty}}.

The death of Bambi's mother.mother, [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure if you've actually seen the film for yourself]].
** Bambi discovering Flower in the flower field and looking at the butterfly on his tail are the two most often bits used to officially represent the film.

* MemeticLoser: Bambi is frequently the poster child for TastesLikeDiabetes, and often exemplified whenever mocking Disney's cutesy, cloying image. This is despite the fact that only half the film has Bambi as a naive MommasBoy fawn getting into cutesy antics ([[ItWasHisSled and losing his mother]]), with the latter half taking on a much darker tone and focusing on [[TimeSkip Bambi growing into a]] [[TookALevelInBadass formidable stag]]. Counting [[Disney/BambiII the much later midquel]], even the fawn-era Bambi had his badass moments.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: What's weird is that the infamous death scene is the only scene anyone seems to remember. Also, it seems that nobody is aware that Bambi ever grows older. Disney isn't particularly helping, however, as there is almost ''no'' merchandise portraying Bambi as an adult, and ''Bambi II'' is actually a midquel and not a sequel as already mentioned.
** Which is ironic, given that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLvX-erABqY original advertisements for the film in 1942]] did the exact opposite, showing only the third act and playing up the romance between Bambi and Faline as well as the final confrontation with the hunters. In this case, it is the child Bambi that is not even mentioned.

* NarmCharm: The child voice actors aren't the best actors, but their performances are certainly cute. Their acting skills are ''just'' unpolished enough that they sound refreshingly like the little kids they really are -- Bambi's "Mother? Whatwegonna~dotoday?" line is a prime example.

** Some "behind the scenes" footage reveal that this was invoked with the voice cast for young Thumper. Children trying out for the part were asked to deliver the line "Did the young prince fall down?", which they all did in a fittingly worried manner, but one child instead comically said "Did the young prince fall doooown!?" Most of the crew dismissed the young Peter Behn, but one of them got curios and suggested they had him try more lines as he, similarly to above noted, talked like how children often do.
