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.

* AdaptationalVillainy: While still a very sympathetic 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.

to:

* AdaptationalVillainy: While still a very sympathetic 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.


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.

Added DiffLines:

* BadBoss: Spigot doesn't treat his loyal aide, Dunder, very well. He forces him to work long hours without additional pay and [[NeverMyFault pins all his failures onto the big guy]].


Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: He's a genuine NiceGuy who's on very good terms with Baloo and company, even when their two countries are at odds with one another.


Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeVillain: He usually serves this role in episodes where Spigot serves as the antagonist. He seldom ever crosses paths with the heroes, but Spigot's villainous actions are usually driven by the High Marshal's threats to execute him for every petty little thing.


Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveFailedMe: Fail in your task or disappoint him in any way? You will be shot. With how often he gives Spigot this threat, it's a miracle the little guy is still alive and kicking.

* BookDumb: Baloo can barely read or write, but is extremely resourceful and street wise at times.

to:

* BookDumb: Baloo can barely read or write, but is extremely resourceful and street wise at times. One episode shows he was a high school dropout.

* TheDreaded: Among Thembria's military and civilian populace. Mess up in anyway and you will be shot, or he may even come up with a worse punishment. It's unclear what his reputation outside of Thembria is however.
