* AdaptationalHeroism: Whilst a good guy in both versions, Baloo was much more [[GrumpyBear grumpy]] and stern in the books, instead of the kind, friendly GentleGiant of the Disney version.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Whilst a good guy in both versions, AdaptationalComicRelief: Many characters get this treatment, with Baloo, Kaa and Hathi being the most obvious examples. In the book, all three are serious characters and mentors to Mowgli. Here, Baloo was much more [[GrumpyBear grumpy]] is a lazy, laid-back BigFun friend of Mowgli, Kaa is a LaughablyEvil ButtMonkey antagonist, and stern in the books, instead of the kind, friendly GentleGiant of the Disney version.Hathi is a bumbling, absent-minded military commander.

* KavorkaMan: How Ranjan's hirsute, obese and middle-aged dad ever ended up with his very attractive young wife is a mystery [[note]] Considering that they are in India, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arranged_marriage_in_the_Indian_subcontinent arranged marriage]] is a likely answer.[[/note]]. Partly justified in that he's an InkSuitActor of his voice actor, John Rhys-Davies.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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''.
