Jungle Book Shōnen Mowgli is a Japanese anime adaptation of Rudyard Kipling' s original . fact that the character was voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, a common practice in animation voice work for younger or cute characters.
They are only cubs when Mowgli is first adopted by the wolf couple but are fully grown in subsequent episodes. They are both very close to Mowgli and stay that way throughout the series, even after they leave home and find mates. Akru has a tendency to be hot-headed and does not always look before he leaps, whereas Sura tends to be calmer and more collective.
In the French version of the show, Akru was actually female and Mowgli's adoptive sister; this later became a problem when the character becomes mates with Maki, and due to his voice actor being a woman, many mistook Sura as female in the English version initially. Sura's efforts to court Lala are, at first, incorrect, but in Episode 24, he proves his worthiness to her by keeping a trio of crocodiles away from her long enough for Baloo to finish them.
In the ninth episode, Akru was briefly exiled from the pack, but re-welcomed after Mowgli conjures a remedy to ease his injuries.
Sura becomes a father of two cubs, making Akru and Mowgli uncles. Vermillion - Lala's father and Alexander's great friend. He competes with Alexander to be the next leader of the pack, when his father, Akela, chooses to step down. He acquires a scar on his left eye afterwards. His fur is red in color. It is later revealed that they had also fought previously to decide which one would marry Luri.
He later moves away, apparently leaving his daughter behind, and becomes the leader of a pack of wolves in a rocky desert area.
Feats Of Technical Magic Bring Disney's New 'Jungle Book' To Life
Bacchus - A fat wolf who can never hunt properly. He is more fitted to babysitting the wolf cubs. He appears more often in the first half of the series, and is occasionally used for comic relief. He is mentioned later on however, when everyone was discussing the topic of a new leader one of the wolves said Bacchus should lead the pack, much to some of the other wolves' dismay , though no further mention of him occurs after that.
Fargas - An old wolf who was saved by Alexander from a pack of dholes. His fur is pale blue or fully white. He steals food from the pack's storage in his first few appearances due to apparently being brainwashed by demons; he soon leaves on a journey after being purified by Bagheera, and has not returned since.
Lala - Vermillion's daughter and Akela's granddaughter. She has orange fur, though slightly lighter than her father's. She acts like a tomboy early in the series, and refuses to accept Mowgli as a member of the pack.
Later in the series, she matures and becomes more fond of Mowgli, even developing a crush on him ep; "Mowgli Has a Sweetheart". She soon switches to Sura when he saves her from a trio of crocs. By the end of the series, she and Sura are the parents of two cubs, one of whom is given the name Rusty in the English dub.
He is navy blue in colour. Sandah hates the humans after they killed his sister, Dulia and resents Mowgli for being a human. He eventually comes to terms with him, and even though he leaves with Vermillion and his pack, he and Mowgli appear to share a close camaraderie. Sandah seems to be a lieutenant, or beta wolf, to Vermillion.
Certain translations portray him as female.
Maki - A golden-yellow and cream, female wolf and Akru's mate. Maki is a great singer and, at one point, she's seen giving singing lessons to Akru. She is a minor character and appears very late in the series. In the German version she was actually male, due to the fact that Akru was female in that version of the show.
She still retained her feminine looks though. Kichi - Mowgli's red panda friend.
His parents are killed by humans. After Mowgli accuses Kichi of causing trouble which he unintentionally does and being a nuisance, he has a harder time fitting in with the new crowd due to already being an outsider and decides to get on the wrong foot.
But his friendship with Mowgli would be put to the test when they're prompted to work together. Later in the series he lives together with Mowgli in his hut.
In the English version, Kichi is referred to as a male. In the German version, Kichi is called Kiki.
The confusion is due to the fact that the character was voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, a common practice in animation voice work for younger or cute characters. He exhibits a similar protection towards her and her family as he did to the English family in the original short story, and extends this protective behavior to Mowgli. Rikki-Tikki kills Buldeo's pet Indian cobra after it tries to attack Mowgli in the middle of the night and later alerts Mowgli that Jumeirah and her family have been holed up by the villagers.
Hathi - The great Indian elephant who serves as the ruler of the whole forest of Seeonee. He is usually seen accompanied by his two sons. Hathi first appeared in the series proclaiming the Water Truce at the Peace Rock during a drought and told the animals the story of How Fear Came.
Hathi shows up occasionally afterwards, appearing once to help drive Grizzle away, another time to help raze the village, again to show Mowgli the Elephant Dance, and one final time in the series finale when the animals bid Mowgli farewell.
“The Jungle Book” reboot thrives on nostalgia
Chil - A Brahminy kite who served as the messenger for Akela's pack and Hathi. Linda - A benevolent English girl although in the American dub, neither her nor her dad speak with English accents who adopts Bagheera as a cab and keeps as a pet.
Bagheera tells Mowgli a story about her and we meet her through flashback sequences. She has a love for not just any animal, but him especially it seems. She also seems to have a grand understanding of animals through some connection. When her father attempts to whip Bagheera while Linda gives the cat milk, she defends him by shielding him and is slightly injured when he accidentally whips her instead, when she gets in the way.

But even if the new movie is amazing, Disney's original Jungle Book will always have a piece of my heart. Here are some memorable Jungle Book quotes that show why.

They'll ruin him. They'll make a man out of him. Bagheera: "Had I known how deeply I was to be involved, I would've obeyed my first impulse and walked away.

Bagheera: "Birds of a feather should flock together. You wouldn't marry a panther now, would you? Come to think of it, no panther has ever asked me.
Kaa: "I have It's simply terrible.Walt Disney Records. When Baloo finally comes around, Mowgli runs off into the jungle where he survives a second encounter with Kaa the snake and finally, with Shere Khan. Bagheera and Baloo take Mowgli to the edge of the Man-Village, but Mowgli is still hesitant to go there. Tabaqui - Shere Khan's sidekick. Ganshum is not seen again after Mowgli helps Jumeirah and her family escape, but it can be presumed that he fled with the other villagers following the animal attack on the village.
