* AdaptationalWimp: Mowgli doesn't do much besides interacting with the more colorful animal characters and ultimately tying a flaming branch to Shere Khan's tail. In the original book his entire life is full of lessons and hardships about how to become a formidable predator, even though he's at a big disadvantage since he lacks the claws, fangs and muscles of the animals of the jungle, and in the end he's able to survive to grow into a man by becoming one of the smartest and strongest creatures the jungle has seen. ** Also Kaa the python, who is a powerful {{Badass}} and much more deserving of respect in the book. He is the only animal in the jungle that the monkeys fear, and even Baloo and Bagheera are wary when approaching him.

In the book, he's able to survive to grow into a man by becoming one of the smartest jungle's most feared and strongest creatures the jungle has seen. ** Also Kaa the python, who is a powerful {{Badass}} and respected inhabitants -- not so much more deserving of respect in the book. He is movie, where he's more of a [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] ButtMonkey. In the only animal sequel he's become a full-fledged [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] whose sole role is to get beat up a lot. ** Akela and the wolves also get this, as in the jungle that opening of the monkeys fear, and even Baloo and film they give Mowgli to Bagheera are wary when approaching him.because they feel that they cannot protect him from Shere Khan. In the book, Shere Khan himself comes to demand the child, and the pack stands up to him. Akela remains an important ally to Mowgli until the wolf's death.

* Wedgie: Mowgli ends up becoming victim of this twice. ** An impatient Bagherra bites down on his loincloth and pulls at one point, while Mowgli held onto a tree and kicked him in the face until the panther lost his grip. ** After the monkeys drop Mowgli, King Louie hooks his fingers in the kid's shorts and holds him up at arms length while Mowgli tries to hit him.

* LoinCloth: Mowgli's standard outfit. [[MagicPants It's proven to be pretty tough, too, since it didn't get damaged when Bagherra bit down on Mowgli's shorts trying to pull him off the tree. It just stretched three feet back and went back in it's original position when Bagherra lost his grip.]]

* NaiveAnimalLover: The Disney version of Mowgli insists he has all the necessary skills to survive in the jungle when he clearly doesn't, and as such, he thinks he can handle animals that want to kill and/or eat him on his own. The most notable example of this is before the final battle with Shere Khan. Despite the Vultures' insistence to run away, Mowgli refuses to move. Khan probably would have succeeding in killing him, too, if not for Baloo holding him back by his tail at the last second.

** Baloo's personality is basically Phil Harris' comic persona developed on TheJackBennyProgram, minus the heavy drinking. In fact, this movie is much more entertaining if you're familiar with Phil on that show before seeing it.

** Kaa's more villainous characterization has a few notable character traits more similar to, ironically, Shere Khan's book incarnation (a cunning ManipulativeBastard who is, however, somewhat arrogant and pathetic).

** Kaa's more villainous characterization has a few notable character traits more similar to, ironically, Shere Khan's book incarnation (a cunning ManipulativeBastard who is, however, somewhat arrogant and pathetic). His characterization, particularly his snivelling, cowardly personality and the way he sucks up to Shere Khan, also recalls Tabaqui, Khan's jackal sidekick from the book, who is absent from the movie.
