** As Moro is probably keenly aware, the Forest Spirit mercy kills the animal gods that are suffering, as it does to Okkoto. The large piles of bones underneath its tree attests to this. Moro preferred to live long enough through her suffering to get revenge on Eboshi.

** Ashitaka is seeking to lift the curse without having to die, or cut off his own arm. Also he might not want to admit it to himself, but having a cursed but super strong arm has its advantages.

**The problem with Moro having lived a long life is less that she is content to die, though there is an element of that, but rather that Moro is certain that due to her long life, if she asked to be healed, the Forest Spirit would instead take her life.

* When the Apes appear to eat Ashitaka while he's unconscious why does San prevent them from doing so? She was pissed off at Ashitaka from preventing her from killing Lady Eboshi and didnt see it as a him rescuing her so it definitely wasnt out of gratitude. Hell, she was even about to stab him before he called her beautiful and passed out. Given San's hatred of humans and the apes wanting to eat Ashitaka so that they could gain his strength when the forest was steadily declining due to Irontown, the apes devouring Ashitaka would be one less troublemaking human and an advantage for the forest side so San defending Ashitaka seems odd.

** Killing someone in revenge/anger is extremely different from killing them so you can ''eat them.'' Moro scorns San's biological parents because they threw their own baby at her so they could get away faster, and it's clear that they thought she'd try to eat San. Instead Moro gets offended at their callousness and ''raises the baby as her own,'' so the gods seem to have an implicit standard of "don't (intentionally) eat other sapient beings."

** It appears that he can't. Cutting off his topknot signifies the finality of his exile.

* Moro explains the reason she doesnt go to the Forest Spirit to heal her bullet wound despite slowly dying is because shes lived long enough and is content to die, however she still intends on killing Lady Eboshi even though her weakened state would make it harder. Why doesnt San who clearly doesnt want her wolf mother to die explain that if she refuses to get healed and dies then Moro may never have her revenge or at least enjoy it if Eboshi was to die by other means?
