The Carefree Bear
Baloo is an Indian sloth bear who acts as a friend and companion to the wild boy Mowgli. Usually carefree and jovial, he is not afraid to battle Shere Khan and the other villains who threaten his home in Disney Heroes vs Villains.
Disney Heroes Vs Villains War
After secretly murdering his brother Mufasa, the lion Scar ascended to the throne as king of the African savannah. Scar was supported by his hyena lackeys Banzai, Shenzi, and Ed and the conniving tiger Shere Khan, but the Indian man-cub Mowgli didn't trust the predator. Seeing Mowgli as a potential threat to his rule, Scar ordered his hyenas to dispose of Mowgli and his caretakers, the bear Baloo and the panther Bagheera. When the hyenas tracked the three down and went to kill them, Bagheera slashed Shenzi across the face, angering her. Baloo tried to usher Mowgli to safety, but Scar cut off their escape. Baloo tried to fight Scar himself but Scar knocked him to the ground. Scar then leapt at Mowgli, but Mowgli knocked him to the ground with a stick. Taking advantage of Scar's weakness, Mowgli, Baloo, and Bagheera escaped into the jungle, leaving Scar and Shere Khan to look on in annoyance.
Vs Zira and Clayton
Returning to the Pride Lands, Ratcliffe and McLeach told Clayton they had concocted a scheme to punish him for double-crossing them and advance Scar's plot to play Tarzan and Simba against each other, all at the same time. To this end, Yzma and Zira arrived and explained that Scar wanted it to appear that Simba and the lions had launched an unprovoked attack on gorilla territory. To make the illusion possible, Yzma used one of her potions to transform Clayton into a lion with the appearance of Simba. With Ratcliffe and McLeach satisfied, Clayton and Zira set out. Clayton and Zira arrived at the gorilla nesting grounds with Zira's lioness militia. However, Mowgli and his friends had also arrived, seeking refuge from Scar's attacks. Thinking fast, Mowgli knocked sand into Clayton's face, stunning him. As Zira pursued Mowgli, Tarzan jumped in to face Clayton. Bagheera tried to protect Mowgli, but Zira knocked him aside. As Clayton tried to join the fray, Baloo tackled him, knocking him to the ground. Tarzan and the other heroes assembled, presenting a united force against Clayton and Zira. Realizing that they had lost the element of surprise and the battle, the lions retreated, but the job had been done. Tarzan swore that any further incursions into gorilla territory would be met with lethal force.
Battle with Forces of Nature
In the jungle, as Tarzan and Simba discussed their plan for an attack on Pride Rock, they spotted the smoke from the burning savannah. They immediately set out to investigate, but Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed separated Tarzan and his friends from Simba's group. The hyenas attacked from all sides, but Tarzan managed to keep them back. Switching targets, they attacked Tarzan's allies, but they managed to fend them off as well until Baloo and Tantor scattered them.
