* AdaptationalBadass: Disney's Shere Khan was already a badass compared to the original version, but ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' version was implied to be afraid of bullets. This one ain't. See TheStoic below.

* AffablyEvil: Or "Ambiguously Affably Evil". While not the nicest person in the world, it's debatable whether he's evil or not. In any case, he's still genuinely polite.

* BerserkButton: Never, ever, ever, EVER try to lie to him. He takes that as more offensive than cheating him out of money.

* EveryoneHasStandards: The episodes "Citizen Khan" and "Louie's Last Stand" proved this quite nicely.
* Fiction500: He outright states that "Khan Industries is the biggest corporation in the world." In the pilot, he offers Baloo $100,000 to recover some stolen treasure; by his tone, this is barely a drop in the bucket to him.

nicely. Khan only wants money or power, and avoids intentionally hurting others because it's bad for business.
* Fiction500: He outright states that "Khan Industries is the biggest corporation in the world." In the pilot, he offers Baloo $100,000 a hundred thousand dollars to recover some stolen treasure; treasure (which, given the time period, would be almost $1.2 million in late 1980s money); by his Khan's tone, this is barely a drop in the bucket to him.



* PragmaticVillainy: Khan is merciless to those that get in his way, but savvy enough to know the consequences of [[KickTheDog Kicking the Dog]] too many times, and is generally tough but fair to his associates. His stated goals are money and power, and his villainy (or lack of it) is directly proportional to how much it will help him gain either or both.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: While he will partake in the odd corrupt scheme every once in a while, his moral code prevents him from doing anything exceptionally heinous. His personal code is "Always repay your debts, and never go back on a deal." Although occasionally, he leans into...
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: ...this trope. When you're the CEO of the world's biggest corporation, you can pretty much do whatever you like. As he explains in the pilot:

* GenreSavvy: While not immune to being suckered in himself, Baloo can be rather streetwise and observant at times, he is wary to some of the shady clients Rebecca naively takes offers from, and is more willing to listen the kids' explanations at times (once debunking Rebecca's NotNowKiddo moment with Kit).

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he's a ruthless individual who mainly seeks money and power, he has a sense of honor and generally won't cross the line. However, he does have his more outright crooked moments, such as when he collaborated with Don Karnage to create a fake oil shortage so that he could overprice his fuel.

* AdaptationalJerkass: While still a clearly heroic character, ''Talespin's'' rendition of Baloo can also often be more self serving, bad tempered and egotistical than his ''Jungle Book'' rendition, albeit nearly all DependingOnTheWriter.
