|“||And I saw, from eyes that were not mine.
And I felt, with a fear I could not reason.
They watch us, they invade us.
And keep us happy, committing treason.
To a King we didn't deserve.
To a Son who waits weeping.
That I knew, from knowledge gained while sleeping.

|~ Specimen 8's CAT-DOS entry.|
Specimen 8, also known as the Deer God, is the eighth specimen and a major antagonist from the 2014 indie video game Spooky's Jump Scare Mansion.
It was voiced by Jessie N.
As the name says, Specimen 8 appears to be a tall, floating humanoid-deer creature. Specimen 8 has deer antlers which are very symmetrical, sharp, and long having the structure of the typical deer would. Specimen 8 appears to have two white eyes and a lowered jaw while its teeth are rapidly sharp.
Under Specimen 8, it appears that it is wearing a black coat around itself, while its rib bones are also seen with different human-like faces.
Before seeing Specimen 8, the player enters first a forest filled with small deer. The deer appear to be peaceful until the player approaches them. If so, the deer starts attacking the player. Once the player escapes the forest, they find a dark-greenish room with violin music playing in the background, as Specimen 8 appears starting to chase the player.
Specimen 8 can go through walls, while it starts saying numerous demonic words. If the player is close to Specimen 8, on the screen flashing images of it would appear. Once killed by Specimen 8, the player finds themselves zooming down a red dirt path until Specimen 8 appears and draws them into its cloak. Upon approaching it, a quote appears which says that Specimen 8's reason to kill the player was because he isn't one of the deer.

Specimen 8 now appears to be having a giant black ring surrounding it with particles below it. Also, the static effects have been changed in-game. During the death screen, the player is allowed to move around, but is not allowed to exit the game until they approach Specimen 8.
Either Specimen 4, Specimen 6, or Specimen 8 can be sacrificed to the Hellgate to shut it down. Its chase sequence consists of a corridor similar to where Specimen 8 was first encountered, with the only difference being windows that reveal a black forest. Violent Deer can be encountered during the chase. If killed by either Specimen 8 or the Violent Deer, Specimen 8's death sequence plays, only with a different poem at the end, which reads:
"And as I slept, and as I grew.
Something stirred, both root and sinew.
I cannot eat, nor can I starve.
A face on the great tree did I carve.
It spoke to me, it whispered things.
It demands more life, demands more rings."

- It is based on The Beast from the cartoon Over the Garden Wall.
- Specimen 8 also could of been based on:
- Specimen 8 most likely inspired the 2017 deer "cursed image", made by the freelance illustrator known as Jadetior. Considering the image consist of deers, and a tall humanoid deer-figure, which looks exactly the same as Specimen 8.
- Specimen 8 makes a cameo in Lost in Vivo, one of Akuma Kira's other games where it can be seen out a window near the end of the third Lost Tape.
- Its death screen is most likely inspired by SCP 860-1.
- Specimen 8 is often speculated to be related to Unknown Specimen 4 due to the fact that both have deer antlers. However, Tirsiak is based on a wolf while Deer Lord is based on a deer.
