Père David's Deer is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Père David's Deer has gray eyes with long light brown hair that fades to brown towards the bottom, with several sandy blonde and brown spots in her hair, including her animal ears, the sides of her forehead and her middlemost bang. As other Friends, she has a few hairs on the top of her head that represent antlers, a pair of pointy animal ears and a long tufted tail. She wields a brown lance modeled off a pair of antlers.

Her upper clothing consists of a black beret and a red masquerade mask. Père David's Deer wears a white shirt with a red bow tie, a light brown long sleeved square neck shirt with its sleeves being half beige, a black capelet with a red collar, and beige gauntlets that fades to brown towards the tip of the fingers. She wears a red short circular skirt and black over knee boots.

In Real Life

Père David's Deer on Woburn Deer Park, Woburn, Bedfordshire.

Père David's Deer is a species of deer extinct in the wild, currently surviving in a semi-wild state in the Beijing Milu Park and the Dafeng Milu Natural Reserve, China, and found in captivity in many zoos around the world. The species survived in the wild only at the Imperial Park of Beijing until 1900, during the Boxer Rebellion, when the garden was occupied by troops and the remaining deer were shot and eaten. Nevertheless, the deer had been introduced into private deer collections in the United Kingdom, Belgium, France and Germany, and could be saved thanks to 18 specimens kept by zoos that were brought together and bred successfully by the Duke of Bedford at his property in Europe, eventually being reintroduced in the area of the old Imperial Park.

Those deers live in low-lying grasslands, swampy areas and reed-covered marshlands. Their head and body reaches a length of up to 190 cm, their pelage is reddish brown in summer, while being grayish brown with darker areas on flanks and throat in winter. They have long antlers, with the long hind prong extending upwards, and the front prong branching off with the prongs facing backwards. The tail is long with a dark tuft at the end.

Père David's Deers are herbivores, feeding on grass, reeds and leaves of bushes. They are very social, living in large groups, and are very fond of water, being known for being good swimmers and spending lots of time in the water.


  • Named Père David's Deer by Milne-Edwards, in 1866, after Père Armand David, the French missionary who discovered the deer in the Imperial Hunting Park in 1864.
  • The Chinese call this species "sze pu shiang" which means 'none of the four', referring to this deer's supposed ownership of the neck of a camel, the hoofs of a cow, the tail of a donkey, and the antlers of a deer, without resembling any of them more than the other.
