''Princess Mononoke'' (もののけ姫 ''Mononoke Hime'') is an acclaimed 1997 film from famed Japanese director Creator/HayaoMiyazaki, with a rather dark, serious plot and ambience (compared to most of his other works), yet lacking none of the trademark stunning visuals of a StudioGhibli production. The score was written by Joe Hisaishi. Also worth noting is that Creator/NeilGaiman adapted the film's English dub.

* EquivalentExchange: When San takes Ashitaka to the Forest Spirit to heal his gunshot wound, she takes a sapling as an offering. The Forest Spirit breathes on the sapling, which withers and dies, and breathes on Ashitaka, who comes back from death overnight.

* HopeSproutssEternal: Though the forest has been ravaged and most of the old gods are dead, the film's final shot shows a single kodama appearing on a tree. Since the kodama are inextricably linked with the forest, living and dying as it does, its presence signifies that the old spirits are still alive to some extent and the forest will eventually rejuvenate.

Ashitaka travels through the war-torn countryside, discovering that his curse has also [[CursedWithAwesome imparted superhuman strength]] along the way. He eventually comes upon Tataraba (Iron Town), a mining settlement on the edge of the wilderness that's in the midst of a three-way war between the strong-willed Lady Eboshi (who protects the town through the use of firearms), the spirits of the forest (who want to stop Iron Town's ex pansion to protect their homes from destruction), and an influential {{samurai}} warlord (who wants to seize the town for the wealth it generates). Ashitaka must endeavour to create peace between the various sides, understand the reason behind his curse, and pursue a relationship with San, a human girl who was RaisedByWolves and fights alongside the spirits as events seem to be heading towards an inevitable disaster.

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Averted. Where most other GreenAesop works make complete caricatures of both humanity and nature, ''Mononoke'' goes to great lengths in [[GreyAndGrayMorality humanizing "villains" like Eboshi and Jigo and highlighting the shortcomings of the nature-themed characters]], such as San's immaturity (her first spoken line is "Go away!") and the barbarism of (some of) the nature spirits.

* {{Badass}}: Ashitaka doesn't brag about it, but boy, can he act the part! Lady Eboshi, San and Moro more than fit the bill too.
** BadassAdorable: Even if she [[RaisedByWolves doesn't act like one]], San is still a cute young girl.
** BadassNormal: Applies to Lady Eboshi in particular. Her enemies are the gods themselves, but it is they who fear her. Ashitaka himself applies; even before receiving his curse, he's able to defeat an enormous boar demon single-handedly.

* SolarPunk: A village in the throes of industrialization clashes with the forces of nature, but they ultimately learn to coexist? Sounds about right.
