* WhiteHairBlackHeart: It is a downplayed trope. Shunack has white hair and is the BigBad but so does TheHero and his father, TheHeroOfAnotherStory and two other heroic characters (Yolda and Hajan). Shunack himself is a WellIntentionedExtremist.

* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: The Forest and Ragna, though which side is which is debatable. On the one hand, there's the whole nature vs. science thing; on the other, Ragna and especially Shunack are obsessed with the past while the Forest is a genetically engineered HiveMind of plants (possibly a biotech [[{{Transhuman}} Posthuman]]) that brought down the old order.

* ArtMajorBiology: Pretty much everything Everything involving The Forest.Forest is a sight to be behold: beautiful, mobile and dangerous.



*TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Shunack is motivated by a desire to fix his mistake by overstimulating the genetic experiment that turned into the Forest as it exists in the present. He describes activating E.S.T.O.C. as erasing "centuries of guilt".]]

* BigNo: Toola after Agito inadvertently wakes her up.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: At first the entire point of the film seems to be an {{Anvilicious}} GreenAesop; however, it also kind of appears to be a {{Deconstruction}} of one as well. Ragna is a seemingly anti-environmental ruthless empire, but they first-and-foremost only want to live independantly from the Forest and avert the AlwaysChaoticEvil trope. On the other hand, the altered "eco-system" of the Earth is a sentient, animalistic, mass-murdering, force of literal nature that demands that its protectors be turned into trees.

* ClingyJealousGirl: Minka is strongly implied to be this, she has a crush on Agito so naturally Toola is competition.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Near the end of the movie, Agito runs down an exploding volcano with Toola in his arms while being closely pursued by a very fast (and presumably very hot) lava flow. The ground he's running across is glowing red and actually looks molten in some places and yet neither of them suffer so much as a singed hair.
* CreepyTwins: The twin forest spirits. Especially the one with the high, squeaky voice.
* CursedWithAwesome: Those who become enhanced by the forest gain extraordinary super-strength, but using that power can gradually cause {{Metamorphosis}} and effectively an early death. When their time comes, they mostly accept their fate, claiming to finally be in peace with nature and themselves.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Until she joins Shunack in Ragna, Toola wears nothing but her short hospital gown was wearing in the medical facility where she was in suspended animation. Minka's family gives her something wear over it but her short skirt is still visible.
