* About six months after this film was released, animation director Yoshifumi Kondo died suddenly of an aortic aneurysm. It's sad knowing that this film was his last work as an animator.

* What about when Okkoto, limping away from the catastrophic loss against Jigo's men, confuses the skin-wearing people for his warriors and tries to lead them back into combat? Only to be poisoned by them and become a senseless monster? His blind hope and desperation is terribly sad. What makes it worse is to see this once proud, albeit stubborn god be driven utterly insane.

* The fate of some of residents of Iron Town. When the black ooze of the forest spirit washes over the town, they flee to the river. Some of them go the wrong way. You can briefly hear Toki scream "No, not that way!" just before they are instantly killed.

** This merits elaboration. When Okkoto, wreathed in the wrath of demonic tendrils, happens upon the Forest Spirit in his glen, ''all of the worms wither and die'' as his rage is immediately extinguished, and it even seems he can see again; though this is combined with an expression of fear so great that it almost qualifies him for [[{{Woobie woobie status}}]]. Then the Forest Spirit kisses his nose, and the mighty warrior's eyes drift closed, and he just collapses where he stands. Moro, weakly propped up nearby after having delivered San to Ashitaka, follows suit. The world had just lost two forces of nature like they were nothing.

* The film can be viewed as a Creation Myth for ''industrialisation'': It's the moment where humanity, not understanding the damage it's causing, started taking more than nature had to give. Until then the forest had been able to hold its own but it had been weakening the whole time. And the natural world no longer has its gods to protect it. As San says, ''"The forest god is dead"'', and it won't be the same any-more. The death of the forest god can be said to be the beginning of our climb into the present day world, and it's come at a terrible cost.

* The scene where Ashitaka is too weak to eat by himself, so San chews the food up first and then [[IntimateHealing gives it to him]]. Ashitaka actualy begins [[ManlyTears tearing up]] at this display of unconditional care, it may be a factor...

* When San is knocked out by Jigo's hunters and trapped in Okkoto's demon flesh. Her groggy, terrified realisation of her plight as she wakes up along with the agony she's enduring as she tries to escape is just heart-wrenching. What's worse? It's inferred that because of her resistance to the caustic qualities of demonic corruption; she would have slowly become an avatar of hate and vengeance if Moro and Ashitaka had not saved her.
