* 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.

* SpaceWhaleAesop: Honda is the friggin' king of this trope. ''[[Film/{{Gojira}} Godzilla]]'' involved nuclear weapons, ''Main/{{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.

* 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]].

* BreakTheCutie: He was a very optimistic man despite having to fight one of the second biggest wars of the 20th century. As he went home after being released as a war prisoner, well... He saw Hiroshima. The man he once was did not survive.

Ishiro Honda (本多猪四郎 Honda Ishirō, 1911-1993) is one of the well-known directors of Toho, perhaps famous for his Showa Era Franchise/{{Godzilla}} films.

Born in 1911, Honda was raised by a Buddist father, in which he had a positive outlook in life. As a film director, majority of his career, he directed propaganda films. He was eventually drafted in World War II, in which he was a foot solider (putting his movie career on hold for a while). His ultimate life changing experience was the destruction of Hiroshima caused by the atomic bomb, thereby haunting him forever. Poor guy. When ''Godzilla'' was being produced, Honda decides to turn the movie into what it is today, and it's popular amongst the Japanese and fans of the series.
