* CatsAreMean: Played straight with Shere Khan, a man-eating tiger and the [[BigBad main villain]]. Zig-zagged with Bagheera. Wise and honorable to be sure, he's still devious and cunning in a way neither Baloo or the wolves are, not to mention one of the most feared animals in the jungle. Yet he firmly remains on the side of the Jungle Law.

* CatsAreSnarkers: Again Shere Khan and
Bagheera the black panther is who, despite their different alignments have a wise and trustworthy friend.similar, rather dark sense of humor.



* OpposedMentors: Baloo and Bagheera. While teaching Mowgli the law, Baloo is very strict and beats him lightly (by bear-standards) whenever he gets something wrong, while Bagheera, who teaches Mowgli things like climbing and hunting believes more in 'learning by doing' and is a tad more relaxed. Ironically enough, when Mowgli is in danger and/or has seriously messed things up, Bagheera is the one who keeps his cool instead of Baloo who starts to panic, as well as being more strict with carrying out punishments, where Baloo urges the panther to be more lenient.



** Shere Khan, despite being regarded by the rest of the jungle as a bullying coward
** Bagheera, who can saunter into a wolf pack during one of their meetings and have their immediate and respectful attention

* ScavengersAreScum: While Shere Khan the tiger is the main villain, Tabaqui the jackal is shown as his lackey, reporting to him in the hopes of eating his leftovers and avoiding fights, in contrast to the wolves who are presented to be honorable hunters. In fact, wolves who side with Shere Khan are compared to jackals by Mowgli.

* SmugSnake: Shere Khan, who always talks with the wolves in an insulting, condescending tone. Not [[OldMaster Kaa]], despite being literally a snake.
