* BadassPrincess: San doesn't control a human kingdom, but is the main representative of a great forest that is still revered in a holy sense by the common people who still practice Shinto. She and her clan are the only one of two forces which have successfully held off human encroachment and continue to keep the vast majority of their territory secure; [[PyrrhicVictory even as their numbers dwindle to near nothing...]]

* BreakoutCharacter: San pretty much stole the entire film. She probably stole the show for the animation team as well, because when Miyazaki took a vote on the film title; his favourite 'The Legend of Ashitaka' was outnumbered by those who wanted it to be titled 'Mononoke Hime'. And the rest is history.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She resents humans, but she deeply cares for her adoptive wolf family, the denizens of the forest even if they insult her to her face and later Ashitaka.
* JunglePrincess: She is referred to by the people of Tataraba as "The Princess of the Vengeful (forest) spirits". She dresses the part.

* LeitMotif: Not only does she have both an instrumental and a vocal track iteration of the same piece of haunting music to her name provided by Joe Hisaishi but she also has a personal sound effect, which is of her ivory disc earrings chiming together off her canine tooth necklace myriad times during her first few appearances.

* UnresolvedSexualTension: By the end of the film, San admits that Ashitaka's love means so much to her but she cannot quit her home to live with him in Tataraba; there's too much bad blood between her and the settlers; not to mention Eboshi. Where their relationship will go from there... Her final smile suggests that it will hold hate at bay for many years to come.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Unlike the other boars who are ready to kill a wounded Ashitaka for being a human and ready to jump to conclusions about Nago's death even accusing the wolves of eating him, Okkoto listens to Ashitaka's story and accepts it after Ashitaka shows him proof, namely the cursed mark on his arm. He then allows Ashitaka to leave the forest in peace though he does warn him that he will kill him if he sees him in the forest again, if only because [[EndOfAnAge they'll meet under different circumstances]].

The last prince of the Emishi tribe. A prepossessed and earnest young man; he is as skilled in war as he is of strong moral fibre but one day his ethics and his soul will be tested from within as well as without. After his exile he journeys to the lands of the west in an odyssey to lift the curse that has befallen him and to see with eyes unclouded by hate.

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Being weaned by a god and raised in a place of magic has put her far ahead of what any fifteen year-old girl should be capable of. She endures head trauma that would bust a skull inwards, can leap incredible heights, slice a thumb-thick quarterstaff in half with a back-hand swipe of a sharp stone knife and endure falls that would kill an ordinary human. Even surviving Demon Corruption with little to no scarring until the decapitated head of the Forest Spirit's own exuding ooze touches her skin. May overlap with CharlesAtlasSuperpower.

* DentedIron: Although she survives a close-range blast of a black-powder cannon, being bathed in a jet of Greek fire and falling about three hundred feet off a massive cliff, clipping the side at least once and being swept downriver; Eboshi's bullet condemns her to be greatly weakened and eventually paralyses her hind legs.

The de-facto ruler of Tataraba (Iron Town). With help from the Emperor's religious sect she gained the firepower that secured the fledgling outpost against Nago and his tribe; wiping them from the face of the earth. Her men clear the forest back inch by inch to further mine the ore needed for weapon production in order to protect her burgeoning community; made up of the disenfranchised as wars between the Daimyo ravage the country.
