Added DiffLines:

* GameOverMan: Shere Khan in the Genesis version; Mowgli in the SNES version, as you see him land head-first into some dirt and struggle to get out. In the Genesis version, he acts as a Continue Man, as this animation appears on the Continue screen, instead.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayerDeathIsDramatic: [[AvertedTrope Nope.]] When Mowgli loses a life, you get a sequence of a couple monkeys coming on with a stretcher and a siren sound as Mowgli sways a bit. Then he leaps onto the stretcher and they carry him off-screen. It's pretty comical.


** [[WesternAnimation/{{Bambi}} Friend Owl]] makes a cameo appearance in the SNES version of the game.

* StationaryBoss: In most versions of the game, the final boss, Shere Khan, does not move from his spot.

In the Master System and Game Gear versions, Khan sits on a boulder in the middle of the screen and doesn't attack at all. Mowgli has to dodge the fire around him as he throws fire at Khan.
