** [[{{Tropers/Sharysa}} This Troper]] wonders if it's a stealth reference to CelticMythology--Miyazaki was inspired by ''The Great Boar of Bel Gulben,'' an Irish folktale, and many European fairies are noted to be weak to ''ColdIron''. The animal-spirits are called gods, but they act MUCH closer to TheFairFolk due to their Shinto nature. Plus, the "poisoning" takes effect for Okkoto almost immediately after getting shot, and even the best physical poisons probably won't work against a fucking ''god.'' ColdIron weakens European fairies because it's a symbol of human civilization: Once a Shinto forest-spirit gets shot, it poisons them because they've got a piece of civilization ''stuck in their flesh and they can't get it out.'' San may have [[SuckOutThePoison tried to suck the poison out]] from Moro's wound because she mistook the magical "poisoning" for literal poison, but Moro wouldn't have known to correct her because [[YourMindMakesItReal it's the same thing to a god.]]

* When she's talking to Ashitaka about her, she seems to talk in a somewhat melancholy tone, almost... regretful.

** This would be tragic whether she knows or not--if she knows San's heritage and regrets both defiling Moro's forest and leaving her infant daughter as wolf-food, [[FridgeHorror what happened to her husband]]? Moro mentions that ''both parents'' were there when they threw San at her in a panic. And if she ''doesn't'' know about San, then she's unknowingly trying to kill/subjugate her own daughter.
