* TheAce: Ashitaka, who goes back and forth between being caring, charming, easy-going, honest prince and an almost absurdly competen fighter (and despite that a pacifist) and [[BrokenAce self-pitting, full of regret drifter constantly talking how he's going to die soon due to an evil curse]]. The fact he's so good is also important for his people - he was the last hope for the tribe and has to leave due to the curse.

** Due to not appearing in person, [[AristocratsAreEvil Lord Asano]] and [[GreaterScopeVillain the Emperor]] presumably get away scot-free too.

The story is set during the 15th or 16th century (late Muromachi period), and begins in a small village of the Emishi, the indigenous inhabitants of Japan who by this time have mostly been conquered or driven into hiding in remote corners of the east. The village's peace is shattered by the attack of a terrible demon; their last remaining prince, Ashitaka, is injured during the fight against it, and even worse, the mortally wounded demon is revealed to be a powerful spirit--a giant boar that curses the Emishi with its last breath and reveals that the wound Ashitaka suffered will kill him too. The village elders decide, with much reluctance, that Ashitaka must leave the village before the curse takes full possession of him, and [[QuestToTheWest travel west]] in [[TheHerosJourney search of his destiny]]. Ashitaka leaves immediately, with only his trusted [[HorseOfADifferentColor red elk]] Yakul. The young prince follows the demon boar's trail of destruction with the only clue he has about what transformed it into a demon: an iron ball found embedded in its body.

* JidaiGeki: Set during the late Muromachi period, though it's a ''very'' atypical example of the genre.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsEvil: While the movie thrives on GreyAndGrayMorality, darkness is still representative of the gods' worst side. Gods who fall to fear or hatred become demonic creatures covered in purple or black worms (who can infect humans and manifest as dark energy on them), the apes are black with red eyes, and the Shishigami becomes a creature made of darkness [[spoiler:once his head is ripped off]]. There are no positive spiritual aspects of darkness seen on screen.

Added DiffLines:

* BigGood: Features a rare example of a Big Good ''Ensemble'', with The Forest Spirit being this for the animals, and Eboshi being this for Iron Town.


Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompCushion: Despite their grievous losses, the boars are shown to have broken through the human lines and killed a fair number of people.


Added DiffLines:

* KillAllHumans: The general attitude of the apes and the boars. Narrowly averted with San, who definitely hates the human race, but only wants to personally kill Eboshi for her actions and doesn't attack people who aren't directly threatening her.

* CanisMajor: The wolf deities are huge. While her brothers are big enough for San to ride on their backs, Moro is about ''twice'' that size.
