* AdaptationalVillainy: Kaa was one of Mowgli's allies and mentors in the original book, saving him from the Bandar-log, giving him advice for battle against the dholes, and never threatening to harm him. In fact, Mowgli was the only character able to resist his hypnotic dance. In the movie, he's a more comical villain, but is a genuine threat to the level that Bagheera is afraid of him when he's angry. In the sequel, he's a ButtMonkey and loses almost all of his original menace. All the while, the python threatening to predate Mowgli sounds for all the world like Franchise/WinnieThePooh with a lisp, and well he should considering they're both voiced by Sterling Holloway and (currently) Jim Cummings.

Added DiffLines:

* ScavengersAreScum: Averted with the vultures. They are good-natured, somewhat lazy individuals who are introduced when they can't agree on an activity to do. They later try to stand up to BigBad Shere Khan. The keyword being "try".

* MassOhCrap: The vultures when Shere Khan interrupts their song and [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom thanks them for leading him to his "victim"]].



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A subversion, as they didn't know he was listening in, but it's because of Bagheera telling Colonel Hathi about Mowgli running away that Shere Khan found out about the man cub's presence in the jungle in the first place. A similar incident happens just before the climax as well. Shere Khan overhears the vultures singing to Mowgli and that draws him to their presence. In both situations, Mowgli would have been safer if his friends had kept silent.

* PleaseWakeUpPleaseWakeUp: Mowgli tells this [[spoiler:to Baloo, after Shere Khan knocks out the latter.]]



* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the original book Shere Khan was killed by Mowgli, to the point of he almost DroppedABridgeOnHim. However the tiger survives in ''all'' of Disney's adaptions of the stories and character to date.
** [[spoiler: Not in the 2013 stage version]].

* StatingTheSimpleSolution: Mowgli on hearing that Shere Khan thinks he'll grow up to be a hunter with a gun suggests telling Shere Khan that he would never do that. Bagheera shoots that down because he says Shere Khan ''won't'' listen.



* TemptingFate: Mowgli does this a lot. The most obvious example: Kaa first appears ''immediately'' after Mowgli tells Bagheera "I can take care of myself", and he nearly gets himself (and Bagheera) killed.

Mowgli ''does'' save Bagheera from Kaa by pushing the snake off the tree, so he's not completeley wrong.



* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom:
** Bagheera tells Colonel Hathi about Mowgli running away, not knowing that a hidden Shere Khan is nearby, so that he knows about the man cub's presence in the jungle in the first place. A similar incident happens just before the climax as well.
** Shere Khan overhears the vultures singing to Mowgli to cheer him up, and that draws him to their presence. In both situations, Mowgli would have been safer if his friends had kept silent.



* VillainsNeverLie: Inverted; Mowgli suggests telling Shere Khan that he'd never grow up to be a hunter with a gun, which actually makes a lot of sense given Mowgli as RaisedByWolves likes most of the animals. Bagheera tells him bluntly that Shere Khan wouldn't believe him.



* {{Wedgie}}: Mowgli is victim of this twice.
** When Mowgli wraps his arms around a small tree while refusing to go to the man village, Bagherra bites down on his shorts and tries to pull him off and drag him there. The underwear stretches about three feet behind him, and Mowgli is just barely holding on and trying to kick Bagherra in the face. Good thing Bagherra slipped and lost his grip, or things might've gotten worse.

* KavorkaMan: How Shanti and Ranjan's hirsute, obese and middle-aged dad ever ended up with his very attractive young wife is a mystery. Partly justified in that he's an InkSuitActor of his voice actor, John Rhys-Davies.
