Shere Khan is the main antagonist of the 1998 direct-to-video film The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story. He is the vicious and homicidal lord of the jungle who seeks to kill and devour humans, especially Mowgli.
He was voiced by Sherman Howard.
Shere Khan is first seen attending the jungle meeting called by Hathi. He then contemplates on who he is going to eat, with his sidekick Tabaqui telling jokes about it, much to the tiger's annoyance. He then decides to hunt man, claiming to have a craving for "Indian food".
He and Tabaqui then ambush some humans visiting the river, but when he is shot at by hunters, he flees and is assumed dead.
Years later, he reveals himself alive to the wolf pack and demands that Mowgli be given to him, but Akela refuses, and Shere Khan swears revenge. He is later seen conspiring with the wolf pack bullies about separating Mowgli from the pack, which succeeds.
He and Tabaqui then conspire with the chimps about separating Mowgli from Bagheera and Baloo.
