** The dholes/Red Dog from the eponymous story also function as this, and in a much more ecologically damaging way.


Added DiffLines:

** Occasionally crosses over with TheSmartGuy, as Kaa is the brains behind two of the larger-scale plans: rescuing Mowgli from the Bandar-Log, and diverting the Red Dog.

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.
