Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Kaa is noted as often being rather moody and is sometimes easily offended, but he treats Mowgli rather well after Mowgli compliments him for his rescue and the two are rather close afterwards.


Added DiffLines:

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent / SnakesAreSinister: Both [[AvertedTrope strongly averted]] by Kaa. In contrast with almost every interpretation of the work, Kaa may be a little ornery and even creepy, but is almost always a heroic character when finally spurned to action.

** The bees, called the Little People of the Rocks. The place they live is called the Place of Death and everyone avoids it.

Added DiffLines:

* PredationIsNatural: All animals follow the Law of the Jungle, which allows predators to hunt for food, but there are specific cases it forbids: hunting for pleasure, killing other animals at a watering hole during drought, and hunting Man. Shere Khan the tiger is villainous due to not respecting the Law of the Jungle.

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.
