Rikumaru (リク丸, Rikumaru) is one of the Nara clan's deer.
Rikumaru does not seem to be afraid of humans like most animals and he did not flee during Shikamaru's fight with Hidan.
Rikumaru looks like a normal deer with light brown-coloured fur and dark brown eyes. He also has two big black-coloured antlers on his head like a normal male deer.
Akatsuki Suppression Mission
- In the anime, Rikumaru stood by Shikamaru's side while he buried Hidan. In the manga, Rikumaru is not seen until Shikamaru meets Sakura, Sai, and Pakkun at the edge of the Nara forest.
- Antlers, like his, are a key ingredient in a variety of medicines.
