** This is at least partly due to the fact that her mother was very distant while she was still alive. She was probably averse to getting attached since all her other children died from pollution diseases in infancy.

* AdaptedOut: Only the first quarter of the manga–-amounting to about two books out of seven--even existed when the film was made.[[labelnote:†]] Major characters like Chikuku, the Vai Emperor and his sons, Selm and the Forest People, and Namulith would not be introduced until years later.[[/labelnote]] But even within ''that'', some key characters are missing.
** Most notable of course is the excision of the ''entire Dorok race'', i.e. the other side in the war. They had just been introduced in the manga when the movie was greenlit. So, to simplify the narrative for the film, Miyazaki shifted their scenes to involve the Torumekians and Pejiteans instead.
*** Ketcha makes a brief appearance in the movie – she's the brunette girl who swaps clothes with Nausicaä – but she is never named, and is a Pejitei refugee rather than a Dorok.
*** In the manga, it's the Holy Priest of the Mani Tribe who "witnesses" (through Ketcha) the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy, while Obaba takes this role (through an unnamed Valley girl) in the movie.
** The Worm-Handlers are also completely absent, their scenes in the Valley being swapped for a full Torumekian invasion.
** Ohma ''does'' appear in the movie – it's hard to miss him – but is never named and almost immediately [[CriticalExistenceFailure falls apart]] after firing twice. Of course, in the manga he did not awaken (nor was he named) until near the end of the story, years after the movie came out.

'''''Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind''''' (風の谷のナウシカ, ''Kaze no Tani no Naushika'') is a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] ScienceFantasy manga and animated movie by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki. {{In a world}} dominated by a caustic forest full of huge (horse sized to town hall sized!) and dangerous arthropods, one of the few places left habitable is the Valley of the Wind -- a place where toxic spores produced by the forest are kept from settling by the constant ocean breeze. The crash of a gigantic airplane and subsequent incursion into the Valley by [[TheEmpire Torumekia]] leads to the revelation of a secret that could destroy what's left of humanity, if not the world...

** Naturally, much more nuanced in the manga, where Kushana isn't an outright antagonist and Nausicaä, while still fundamentally good, isn't quite as selfless as she lets on. They ''are'' still, as Miyazaki himself said, "two sides of the same coin".

** In the manga, a sympathetic old Dorok woman gives Nausicaä her dead daughter's old dress (which Ketcha admits she wanted, but Nausicaä looked the old woman's daughter). This nearly comes back to bite Nausicaä when she returns to the Torumekians and Kushana recognizes the symbol on the dress and tries to use it as a reason to not help her.

The success of the movie -- Miyazaki's first independent work[[labelnote:*]] (the ''first'' film he directed was 1979's ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', which he did for [[Creator/TMSEntertainment Tokyo Movie Shinsha]])[[/labelnote]] -- led directly to the founding of Creator/StudioGhibli and inspired [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Chocobos]]; it's also where Creator/HideakiAnno got the prototype for the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evas]] (since Anno was handpicked by Miyazaki to be the lead animator for the inspiring scene). Anno would later produce a short tokusatsu film spin-off featuring a live-action version of the creature entitled ''Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo''.
