Added DiffLines:

* UnexplainedAccent: For whatever reason, the vultures somehow have an Australian accent and use un-American words like "blimey", "lads", "bloke", in contrast to the rest of the cast that speaks in American accent and dialect.

Added DiffLines:

* CreepyGood: He's one of the most dangerous and feared animals in the books for good reason, and the scene where he hypnotizes the Bandar-log to eat them is deeply unsettling. He's still one of Mowgli's most powerful allies and saves his life twice.

* SnakesAreSinister: A complex example - the original book averted the trope, but all three Disney adaptations play it straight. As a result of AdaptationDisplacement, this has bled into other portrayals of his character. However, more book-faithful adaptations like ''Anime/TheJungleBook'' and ''{{Animation/AdventuresOfMowgli}}'' also avert the trope by presenting Kaa in his original role as an ally.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: AdaptationalVillainy aside, the Disney movie's goofy if NotSoHarmless villain is quite different from the wise, serious python from the books.



* BadassBoast: Gives one in "Red Dog":
--> '''Kaa''' ''(to Mowgli):'' I have seen a hundred and a hundred rains. Ere Hathi cast his milk-tushes my trail was big in the dust. By the First Egg I am older than many trees, and I have seen all the Jungle has done. [...] [[BadassBoast I have seen all the dead seasons, and the great trees and the old elephants, and the rocks that were bare and sharp-pointed ere the moss grew.]] Art thou still alive, Manling?



* BigDamnHeroes: In the books, his arrival at the Cold Lairs completely changes the tide of Bagheera and Baloo's battle against the Monkey-people.



* CoolOldGuy: In the books, Kaa is over a hundred years old and thirty feet long. His age hasn't slowed him down one bit.



* HypnoticEyes: Kaa the python has these type of eyes, as shown in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T0I5UepXMA this clip, starting at 0:20]].

* MassHypnosis: In the book, Kaa uses a hypnotic dance called "The Dance of the Hunger of Kaa" to hypnotize and consume a large number of monkeys. Only Mowgli is unaffected.



* OldMaster: In the books, Kaa is over a hundred years old, and is considered one of the wisest and most powerful animals in the jungle. He is the only animal the monkeys truly fear, and helps Mowgli defeat a pack of dholes who threaten the Seeonee wolf pack.

He's also every bit as much a mentor to Mowgli as Baloo and Bagheera are, engaging in friendly wrestling matches.
