* CharacterExaggeration: Between movies. Kaa's incompetence and cowardliness are greatly exaggerated in the second movie to the point where he becomes something of a ButtMonkey, whereas in the first he was [[NightmareFuel genuinely menacing]] yet constantly unsuccessful, and his general fear of Shere Khan (the same as everyone else) is exaggerated to not being able to form full sentences around him.
** Which is an especially ridiculous exaggeration considering Kaa was the only character (besides the elephants who Khan would just avoid) that Shere Khan had anything to fear from. Yes, Baloo tried to fight him because he cared about Mowgli, but was clearly [[CurbStompBattle outmatched]]. But Shere Khan was only able to save himself from hypnosis by Kaa thanks to a very quick reaction.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: In the original ''Literature/TheJungleBook'', while Baloo genuinely loved Mowgli, he was a SternTeacher to the man-cub who did not shy away from CorporalPunishment to discipline him. Here, he's a laid-back BigFun character who would never hurt Mowgli.

* AllUpToYou: Bagheera says this to Baloo to take Mowgli to the man-village because he would listen to Baloo.

* AnimalGenderBender: Colonel Hathi leads the troop of elephants. In RealLife elephant bulls are solitary, and only enter a herd to mate, then leave once they've done their business.

** King Louie is drawn without floppy cheekpads or flanges, making him look more like a female orangutan

* ShoutOut: Near the end of the film, [[spoiler:Bagheera delivers a eulogy to the apparently dead Baloo as the background music plays]]. Surprisingly, this background music is a GriefSong called "Chorale for Snow White", a shout-out to the 1937 film ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''.

* DesignatedVillain: King Louie and his posse. While they are [[ThePrankster pranksters]] that kidnap Mowgli, they don't really do anything evil and are just [[LifeOfTheParty party animals.]]

* YellowEyesOfSneakiness: Inverted in Bagheera, who has yellow sclerae but is good. Played straight with Kaa, who has yellow sclerae and is bad (or at least very morally ambiguous / sneaky).
