* MeanBoss: When he gets a phone call late at night in "Citizen Khan":
--> '''Shere Khan''': ''(sigh) This will teach me to let my employees go home after a mere sixteen hour workday.''

* 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.

* AdaptationalVillainy: 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.

* TheFinickyOne: Especially when acting as a Foil to the lazy, slovenly Baloo.

* HumanoidFemaleAnimal

to:

* HumanoidFemaleAnimalHumanoidFemaleAnimal: Much less bearlike than Baloo.



* BewareTheSillyOnes: Something of a narcisistic oaf, and prone to PokeThePoodle on many occasions, but he is a genuine menace to those flying in his realms.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: He's not terribly bright.
--> '''Kit:''' ''Giant mirrors!'' How'd you build ''them?!''
--> '''Carnage:''' Do not be ''ridiculous!'' [[MathematiciansAnswer We did not build them: we stole them!]]



** In "I Only Have Ice for You", when he just can't find rubies on the Sea Duck that he was positive Baloo was carrying, he and his pirates disembark and leave Baloo unmolested, assuming his info was wrong. Hilariously enough Baloo DID have them, he just hid them very well.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainBall: His ego and narcissism is the cause of many of his defeats, even when he has victory in his grasp. In one instance he was smart enough to refit the Iron Vulture so it could fly above Cape Suzette's anti-aircraft guns, succeeding without so much as a fight - but then decides to make his demands in person because it's more glorious that way, despite his minions insisting that the radio is safer. Unsurprisingly, this causes the whole plan to go sour ''despite him having already won.''

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalMisnaming: No one can seem to remember Col. Nossel's true name, which is a common frustration for him.


Added DiffLines:

* BerserButton: It's Col. Spigot! Not Nossle. Or Drainpipe. ''Spigot!''
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His first appearance is the only instance he isn't victim to his usual misnaming.


Added DiffLines:

* GloryHound: Will steal credit, create corruption or even attempt family friendly genocide just to further his good name with the High Marshall.

Added DiffLines:

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Buying the Sea Duck back from Rebecca, at least permanently.
* FriendOrIdolDecision: Several times an ideal opportunity to get back the Sea Duck comes into view, another character (usually Kit) will come into harm's way. As much as he wants his plane back, it can wait a little longer.


Added DiffLines:

* YankTheDogsChain: Every single time he is in a position to buy the Sea Duck back, something will happen that leaves him back at square one.


Added DiffLines:

* SubordinateExcuse: Reversed example. Rebecca is Baloo's boss, though unshrewdly values him as a friend. The one time it seemed he'd finally managed to buy back the Sea Duck and leave her employment, she was clearly saddened for more reasons than losing a serviceable business pilot.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHeroism: He wasn't necessarily evil in ''The Jungle Book'', but he nevertheless served as an antagonist who was opposed by Baloo. In ''Talespin'', he and the bear are best friends.
