Buru Babirusa Nexon Game

Buru Babirusa is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Buru Babirusa has striking, violet eyes which peer over red, half-frame glasses. Her gray hair is long and wild, with four curved, white locks that represent the real life animal's four tusks. Her bangs are dotted with puce spots of varying sizes, and a pair of gray ears with reddish brown tips protrude from her head. Her tail is straight and medium in length.

She dresses in a long, white labcoat, befitting of the nickname "Doctor Babirusa". Beneath the coat, she wears a "seifuku"-style uniform which is purplish brown in coloration, held together by a red ribbon. Her legs are covered in gray stockings with puce spots, matching her bangs, as well as a pair of flats.

The Buru babirusa is a beast of many names, also known as the Moluccan babirusa, golden babirusa and hairy babirusa. Until 2002, all babirusas were considered to be part of the same species, although since then a designation has been made between different members of the genus.

On the general level, the babirusa is a unique wild pig endemic to a handful of remote islands in Indonesia. The name "babirusa" means "pig deer" in the Malay language, referring to their set of four unique tusks, protruding through the skin of their snouts, somewhat resembling antlers. Only male babirusas have the full set of four, however the females still boast the lower pair. They are omnivorous foragers that will eat just about anything, from berries to fish to smaller babirusas, living diurnally in an environment free of natural predators. Poaching and habit destruction, however, have given the babirusa its "Vulnerable" status on the IUCN's Red List.

Compared to other members of its genus, information on the Buru babirusa is limited due to the remote nature of its dwelling and small numbers. It has been hypothesized that humans introduced the species to Buru Island at some point in unrecorded history. Females give birth to one or two piglets at a time, which in turn reach sexual maturity within five to ten months. While the species has been protected by Indonesian law for nearly a century, it is nevertheless poached because its meat is valued as a delicacy.


  • Buru Babirusa is the only Pig Friend that doesn't have the pig nose represented in her design.
  • Despite their imposing and impressive appearance, the tusks of a Buru babirusa (as well as any other babirusa) are brittle and not suited for battle. When two males fight over a mate, they prefer to stand on their hind legs and "box" with their forelegs.
