Chibi Kumamon's design largely follows the appearance of the bear mascot that she is based on. Most of her appearance in pure black, apparently following the official guideline about Kumamon whose black color is K100. Her eyes are pale grey with black elongated pupils while her eyebrows are white and crescent-shaped. She has a long black hair with Kumamon's facial features: white oval with a black spot on her front bang as the bear snout and nose, two pure red ovals at the sides resembling the mascot's cheeks, and a pair of small Kumamon round ears. Two tails by the sides with a yellow spark hairpin on the right and a pink heart hairpin on the left.
Most of her costume is pure black and hard to distinguish details. By judging from the silhouette she has a sleeveless dress with fur at the skirt's edge and round buttons. She is in a seemingly dark see-through bodysuit beneath the dress. She has a big bowtie, arm-length mittens largely resembling Kumamon's hands, black tights and short boots with fur cuff. Like Kumamon, she has a small ball at the back as a tail.

Kumamon (くまモン) is a mascot created by the government of Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan in 2010 for a tourism campaign after Kyushu Shinkansen line opened. The mascot has since enjoyed tremendous popularity locally and internationally.
- Kumamon generally doesn't speak but occationally he is voiced by a female voice actress, Maiko Irie (入江麻衣子).
- In Kemono Friends 3, Chibi Kumamon's Beat animation is she holding a golden spear rallying three tiny Kumamon in a bee costume to attack. That is in reference to Kumamon's special bee costume, called "Kumambachi" (くまンバチ) for the Kumamon Square's 8th anniversary ceremony in 2021. Her in-game personal fashion is also a reference to the strawberry farmer outfit Kumamon wears in the music video, くまモン うまかモン.
