Faline is one of the main characters of the 5th animated feature in Disney classics, the 1942 film Bambi and its 2006 midquel Bambi II and is a childhood friend and eventually mate of Bambi. She is a young doe who is more playful as a fawn, but more mature as a young adult. She was voiced by retired actress Ann Gillis (who was fifteen years old at the time she voiced the latter) as an adult, and as a doe, the late Cammie King (who was famous for playing Bonnie Blue Butler from the Academy Award winning 1939 classic, Gone with the Wind' ), and later Andrea Bowen in the midquel.
- Faline is the first love interest of the main character to have known him as a child, separated for a long time, and reunited with them when they are older, the second being Maid Marian and the third being Nala. Prince Phillip may or may not count, as Aurora was just an infant when he met her, and she was not really grown-up (only sixteen) when they reunited.
- Faline is similar to Zoey as both are deer and both are the love interest of the protagonist and the protagonist's rival (for Faline it was Bambi and Ronno whilst with Zoey it was Rudolph and Arrow) but both are more interested in the protagonist and eventually start a relationship with them. However unlike Faline and Bambi, Zoey and Rudolph don't have children together.
