* TheStoic: Yupa seldom ever loses his cool, or betray any sort of weakness. At one point, he blocks a sword thrust at Nausicaš ''point first''. His expression and voice never changes, but Nausicaš notices he's shuddering from severe pain and blood flows from the wound under his glove.

* ModestyShorts: It ''looks'' like Nausicaš is going commando during the upskirt shots of her flying, but actually, they're skin-colored pants. The fact they flare and billow at the end is almost too subtle.

-> ''"And that one shall come to you garbed in raiment of blue, descending upon a field of gold...to forge anew our ties with the lost land."'' ''Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind'' (''Kaze no Tani no Naushika'') is a post-apocalypic ScienceFantasy manga and anime movie by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki. {{In a world}} dominated by a caustic jungle full of huge (horse-sized to town-hall-sized!) and dangerous insects, one of the few places left habitable is the Valley of the Wind Ė a place where toxic spores produced by the jungle are kept from settling by the incessant breeze. The crash of a gigantic airplane into the valley leads to an invasion by [[TheEmpire Torumekia]] and the revelation of a secret that could destroy what's left of humanity, if not the world... Visually inventive and quite gripping, the heroine Ė the eponymous Nausicaš Ė eventually learns a GreenAesop about living in harmony with Gaia. The success of the movie Ė 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]] Ė 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). Since Miyazaki's only credits up to that point ([[Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro with one exception]]) [[Anime/PandaGoPanda were]] [[Anime/LupinIIIGreenJacket the]] [[Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater television]] [[Anime/FutureBoyConan shows]] [[Anime/SherlockHound that]] he'd worked on with Creator/IsaoTakahata Ė all adaptations of proven-popular works Ė no distributor was willing to give him financial backing for ''Nausicaš'' unless he made a {{manga}} first. So he did, publishing ''Nausicaš'' in the monthly ''Animage'' magazine beginning in 1982. Even after the film's success, he continued to occasionally put out new manga chapters in between working on his later movies, finally finishing the story in 1994. It is worth noting that the manga is very different from the animated version. For one, the manga's story is ''much'' more vast, introducing settings, important characters, and even entire races of people that are never mentioned in the movie (which is understandable for the ĺ+ of the manga made after it). The result is two very different takes on the same basic concept, both by the same man. ''Nausicaš'' suffered a tremendous {{Macekre}} in its first English dub: characters were renamed, the {{aesop}} was turned into a fragfest, and over half an hour of the film that lacked [[StuffBlowingUp any sort of action]] [[ExecutiveMeddling was thoroughly excised]]. The resulting mess was titled ''Warriors of the Wind'', and this particular [[{{Macekre}} hackjob]] led to Studio Ghibli's current policy to not allow their films to be cut for international distribution. (The current English version is provided by Ghibli's North American distributor Ė Creator/{{Disney}} Ė and it is uncut and unaltered.)

* AdaptationalBadass: The Worm-Handlers in the manga were fairly ineffective forest-people used by the Torumekians because their worms could locate items of interest. In the film the group is reworked into an Elite Torumekian fighting squad, and probably the most competent of all the mooks. The group also absorbs some of Kurotawa's competence by being the ones who shoot down Asbel when he engages their airship.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Nausicaa, an ardent pacifist, slaughters an entire squad of soldiers in a murderous rage when she sees that they have killed her ailing father; when she rams her sword into Lord Yupa's hand as he halts the fight, she is traumatized to see she has shed the blood of not just her enemies, but of one of her own friends.

* SwordAndGun: All over the place, including the knife and rifle carried by Nausicaš herself. Guns are used as ranged weapons and swords as melee weapons (and in an interesting twist, the guns are rather archaic but swords are incredibly durable).

* SwordAndGun: All over the place, including the knife The Valley, Pejite and rifle carried by Nausicaš herself. Tolmekian cultures all share this aesthetic. Guns are used as for ranged weapons and swords as melee weapons (and in an interesting twist, the weapons, but everybody carries a sword or knife (or both) for close quarters fighting. As with most ScavengerWorld situations, post-industrial guns are rather archaic but suffer from quality, maintenance and ammo supply issues, while swords are incredibly durable).pretty reliable.
