* In the few times they encounter each other, Shere Khan is clearly fearful of Kaa and won't dare to lay a claw on his scales, for good reason. This is in stark contrast to the Disney version.

* Just Bagheera in this incarnation, which stays true to the book as a master hunter in the jungle. In one episode, he even ''knocks out a rhino with a swipe from his paw''.

Added DiffLines:

* Akela may be old, but he's still a wolf and completely formidable along with being wise.
** In "Mowgli's Brothers", he implies that three wolves would die before he was taken down due to the wolves' custom of challenging the leader one-by-one. It's enough to make everyone else back off.
** In "Tiger! Tiger!" he helps Mowgli herd the buffalo to kill Shere Khan, is able to pin Buldeo and make him paralyzed with fear while Mowgli skins the tiger, then stands calmly by while he and Mowgli are getting pelted with stones before ushering them both away.
** Akela makes a vicious last stand in "Red Dog" and kills a few of the dhole pack himself before he takes too many wounds and falls.

** Doubly so in the sequel, in which he is more menacing and scary, which is one of the few things the film got right.

* One of the most understated but powerful moments of the film is Bagheera and Baloo's conversation in which the former finally convinces the latter of the severity of the situation. Even before this, we get this exchange:
-->'''Baloo''': I'll take care of him!
-->'''Bagheera''': Oh yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him, huh?
-->'''Baloo''': Can't a guy make one mistake?
-->'''Bagheera''': ''Not in the jungle''.
** The ''moment'' Bagheera mentions Shere Khan, Baloo quits messing around completely and immediately snaps to attention. When Bagheera says Shere Khan hates man's fire and gun, Baloo desperately says that Mowgli doesn't have such weapons, but Bagheera plainly states that Shere Khan won't give Mowgli a chance to get them. Bagheera also tells Baloo that just ''one swipe'' from Shere Khan will kill Mowgli and it thoroughly unsettles Baloo, who begins fearing for his own life as well as Mowgli's. He's immediately on board with whatever Bagheera says is best for Mowgli, and sadly realizes what it means. The scene is only a few minutes long but it's a powerful moment of development for Baloo and maybe even audience members sympathetic to Mowgli's desire to stay in the jungle - if Baloo is responsible enough to realize Mowgli must go, then he ''really'' must go.


** And before that, his fight with Boone. And the primates cheer for Mowgli.

Added DiffLines:

* Bagheera also qualifies. If you are more familiar with the Disney version, you might be surprised at just what a formidable panther he originally is. His cunning, understanding of human nature, and boldness made him more feared than Shere Khan, yet his devotion to the Law of the Jungle made him more respected than the tiger as well.
