Kemonomimi (獣耳 animal ears) is an anime and manga terminology that describes characters that possess animal like features. The characters will be predominately human and any real animal characteristics are minimal, unlike kemono characters who possess a large percentage of animal parts in ratio with their human parts. Generally kemonomimi characters have ears and a tail which is animal-like. Often this is just part of their attire and can be removed at will.

Some specific types of kemono are common enough to be known by their own terms:

  • Nekomimi / nekomusume - 'cat ears' or 'cat daughter', cat-girls are the best-known.
  • Kitsunemimi / kitsunemusume - 'fox ears' or 'fox daughter', the second most common variant after cat-girls.
  • Usagimimi / usagimusume - 'rabbit ears' or 'rabbit daughter'.
  • Inumimi / inumusume - 'dog ears' or 'dog daughter'.
  • Umamimi / umamusume - 'horse ears' or 'horse daughter'.
  • Ushimimi / ushimusume - 'cow ears' or 'cow daughter'.
