Continuity mistake: When Eboshi is talking with Jigo inside Irontown, Capitan Gonza is seen behind Eboshi. After a close-up on Jigo, the camera flashes back to Eboshi and Gonza has been replaced with a man in a hat.

Suggested correction: Both Gonza and the man in the hat are there the whole time. In the first shot the camera is angled slightly to the left of Eboshi, showing Gonza in the frame. When the camera angle changes it is now more to the left revealing the man in the hat behind Eboshi but you can still see Gonza's back and shoulder in the right hand corner of the frame.

Continuity mistake: When Ashitaka is swimming to Lady Eboshi's fortress, he sees a dead man floating near him. He wasn't there in the previous shot.

Trivia: The dragonflies in the Deer God's clearing (when San brings the wounded Ashitaka to the God for judgement) are - except in size and ferocity - cameos from Yamazaki's and Studio Gihbli's first great hit, "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" (1984). Many of the giant insects look quite alike to their tiny cousins featured here.

Question: What are the lyrics for the song the women sang during their work; the recurring line is "We are the women of the forge." You can barely hear it during the time Ashitaka takes a turn pumping the bellows.

Question: When Morrow bites off Eboshi's arm, the wolf's head has been somehow cut off her body. When the Forest Spirit took her life away, the head was attached. How did the head become detached?

Chosen answer: You can see part of the ooze flowing across Moro's neck, thus it gets severed.
