The original work has long since fallen out of copyright in the United States[[note]]In 1951, to be exact. In Kipling's native UK, the copyright originally expired in 1986, 50 years after his death, but then copyright was extended to 70 years so his works went back into copyright until the far more recent 2006.[[/note]], so Mowgli and friends are now {{Public Domain Character}}s.

* BeeAfraid: Used as a battle tactic against the dholes in the story "Red Dog."" Mowgli [[IShallTauntYou provokes the dholes into chasing him]], and leads them to a gorge where a number of massive beehives overhang a fast-flowing river. Mowgli, running ahead of the dhole, riles up the bees by throwing stones at the hives and then escapes both the pack and the angry swarm by diving into the river, where Kaa the python is waiting to save him from the current. The dhole are not so lucky and many are either stung to death or drown in the river.

* ChekhovsSkill: At the opening of "Kaa's Hunting", Baloo is teaching Mowgli what to say to strange animals, birds and reptiles to establish cordial relations. After he is abducted by the Bandar-log, he draws on his lessons to improve his situation, asking a passing bird to let Baloo know where he's been taken and establishing a truce with the inhabitants of a snake-infested pit the monkeys drop him into.


Added DiffLines:

* CubCuesProtectiveParent: One of the lessons Baloo teaches to young wolves:
-->Oppress not the cubs of the stranger, but hail them as Sister and Brother,\\
For though they are little and fubsy, it may be the Bear is their mother.

* AnimalStampede: Mowgli engineers the demise of Shere Khan by receiving news that the tiger is prowling in a canyon, hoping to surprise a herd of water buffalo. Mowgli and his wolf pack allies launch a mock attack on the herd from the opposite side, driving them into the same canyon as where Shere Khan is staying. [[spoiler: The stampede results in a gruesome overkill.]]

* HypnoticEyes: From the reaction of the beasts, Mowgli seems to have a mild version. The trope is played full-force with Kaa (though curiously, the book claims that Kaa hypnotizes through ''dance'' rather than eye-contact).
