The Emishi wise woman riding in on the back of some random villager.
When San tells her brothers to take Ashitaka back to their home, one of them wonders what they should do with Yakul. The second brother's suggestion? Asking his sister if they can eat him. To which San replies with a simple "No, you can't."
The insane feats of archery performed by Ashitaka. Especially beheading a man and ripping a man's arms off, with one arrow each.
Particularly, close to the climax when a couple of samurai are riding towards him: Ashitaka fires an arrow at one, decapitating him, and the other just turns around and leaves; the guy may as well have said "Screw this, I'm gone!"
As Ashitaka is catching his breath while carrying an injured Koroku piggyback through the forest, a Kodama trudges by carrying another one on its back. The Kodama being carried looks ecstatic— the one doing the carrying, not so much.
