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

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* IWasNamedMyName: Averted. Mowgli is usually called "little brother" by the other animals, at least until he gets bigger. The humans who adopt him call him Nathoo, after their long-lost son. (His new mother believes that he really is Nathoo returned at first, but it is clear that Nathoo was lost at a later age than Mowgli was - she recalls giving Nathoo shoes, but Mowgli was lost before he could walk, and she sees from how his toes are splayed that he has never worn shoes.)

** Tabaqui's death at the hands (sic) of Brother Wolf is also absent in the Russian adaptation, and is shown having a conversation with Shere Khan prior to his own death (granted whether Tabaqui survives the stampede just after is left ambiguous).
