"Well, hey now. It's good to meet ya! You just hang on and old Baloo's gonna show ya how it's done."
-Baloo, when placed on the Disney Infinity Base
Baloo is one of the main characters in Disney's 1967 film The Jungle Book, the main protagonist of Disney's 1990 TV show Talespin, and a playable character in Disney Infinity: 3.0 Edition. Teased in a tweet by John Vignocchi on January 8, 2016, fans had feelings there would be a representative from The Jungle Book due to the new live-action film coming out April 2016. He was leaked on January 16, 2016 on the website of New York City-based photo and video equipment store, B&H Photo Video, and was released on March 15, 2016. Along with this leak, there was also an up close view of the previously rumored Vision, Ant-Man and Black Panther, as well as Black Suit Spider-Man.
Like many of the new characters, Baloo requires a Wi-Fi connection, allowing an update to be installed on the player's system so he can be playable.
Baloo's basic attack is to slash his his claws and a hit them with his hip. His ranged skill is throwing fruits ranging between Banana bunches, Coconuts, Watermelons, and Pineapples. He can also repel enemies with a roar. His combos include bashing foes with a club and a belly bounce. His finisher is hitting his opponent with a palm tree. His special move makes him dance, and can damage enemies by bumping into them.
