Aside Kaiju, Honda had other films that are easily overlooked. Notably, his film after ''Godzilla''. He is long-time friends with Creator/AkiraKurosawa, and they have directed movies together, such as ''Film/{{Kagemusha}}'', ''Film/{{Ran}}'', and quite a few more. Like Kurosawa, Honda's well-known actors in his films is Takashi Shimura (who is well known as Dr. Yamane in ''Godzilla''), Akihiko Hirata, Kenji Sahara, and a quite more.

* NuclearWeaponsTaboo: His famous one. He will pull a SpaceWhaleAesop for this reason.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Honda is one. After UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, he made ''Godzilla'' with its own shell-shcoked veteran.
* SpaceWhaleAesop: Honda is the friggin' king of this trope. ''[[Film/{{Gojira}} Godzilla]]'' involved nuclear weapons, ''Film/{{Mothra}}'' involved it's not a good idea to let your greed get in a way of disaster, etc. And despite the hate ''Film/AllMonstersAttack'' has received, it deals with you, as a child, must handle the world by yourself even if your parents aren't around to help you.

* AuthorAppeal: Any of his films will have a giant monster with ending their life a complete tragedy. ''Main/{{Mothra}}'' was the only film monster that didn't suffer from this.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Depending on film, you have ''[[Film/{{Gojira}} Godzilla]]'', ''Film/{{Rodan}}, and ''The H-Man'' in one hand with cynicism, but ''Film/{{Mothra}}'', ''Film/DestroyAllMonsters'', and ''Film/MothraVsGodzilla'' on the ideal hand. ''Godzilla'' is very notoriously cynical [[UsefulNotes/AtomicBombingsOfHiroshimaAndNagasaki for a reason]].
