Kraven is just a big game hunter who hunts for the thrill and to try to beat Spider-Man or some other hero. Occasionally he'll do it for the money or if he's really desperate, but it's pretty much just the World's Most Dangerous Game (Is that the right story?) to him. Kraven isn't really all that violent and generally tries to avoid killing (Unless he's really pissed.). The characters have two completely different motivations.

You're missing the forest for the trees.

Both characters have at their core the idea that social darwinism, the law of the jungle, survival of the fittest is the noble way to be and live.

In Kraven's case this takes a very small-scale, street-level form. He hunts people and seeks out worthy prey both to test himself and to satisfy his bloodlust.

In The Mandarin's case this is displayed on multiple levels. It can take the small-scale form of him forcing Iron Man to fight a duel in the woods, or holding gladitorial games with him as the star, or it can take the large-scale form of him trying to purge the world of the weak-gened. The Mandarin is much smarter than Kraven and therefore usually more grandly ambitious, but the core beliefs are very similar.
