Princess Mononoke is one of the few feature films that strongly execute many omnipotent beings in various angles: Eboshi, the ruler of Iron Town; Ashitaka, the exiled prince; Moro, the wolf goddess; Okkoto-nushi, the boar god; and lastly, The Forest God.

In the end, both parties learn that brutality will not resolve their differences.
