250+ Princess Mononoke Quotes For All Anime Adventure Fans

‘Princess Mononoke’ is a not-really conventional Studio Ghibli film that turned out in 1997.

The film rotates around a young lady who was raised by wolves in a timberland. She attempts to save her timberland from people who are attempting to obliterate it.

The message of the film is made sense of in expressions of the illustrator of the film himself: “There can’t be a cheerful completion of the battle between the furious divine beings and people. Be that as it may, even in the center of contempt and killings, there are things worth living for.”

according to his statement, the story doesn’t have a conventional blissful closure. The main bad guys truly do understand their mix-up yet every issue isn’t tackled toward the film’s end.

The film gives us a significant example and numerous incredible characters, including San, Prince Ashitaka, Lady Eboshi, Moro, Jigo, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Look into the statements underneath to get more familiar with the film.

Narrator: In ancient times, the land lay covered in forests, where, from ages long past, dwelt the spirits of the gods. Back then, man and beast lived in harmony, but as time went by, most of the great forests were destroyed. Those that remained were guarded by gigantic beasts who owed their allegiances to the Great Forest Spirit. For those were the days of gods and of demons…

San, The Princess Mononoke: Even if all the trees grow back, it won’t be his forest anymore. The Forest Spirit is dead.

Prince Ashitaka: Never. He is life itself. He isn’t dead, San. He is here with us now, telling us, it’s time for both of us to live.

Jigo: These days, there are angry ghosts all around us – dead from wars, sickness, starvation – and nobody cares. So you say you’re under a curse? So what? So’s the whole damn world.

Prince Ashitaka: Fear and anger only make it grow faster!

Lady Eboshi: I’m getting a little bored of this curse of yours, Ashitaka. Let me just cut the damn thing – *off!*

Princess Mononoke Moro Quotes

Princess Mononoke

Moro: To make them angry. Which makes them stupid.

Boar in Okkoto’s Tribe: The Forest Spirit saved *him?* Saved the life of this loathsome runt? Why didn’t he save Nago? Is he not the guardian of the forest? Why?

Moro: The Forest Spirit gives life and takes life away. Life and death are his alone. Or have you boars forgotten than?

Boar in Okkoto’s Tribe: *You lie!* You must have begged the Forest Spirit to spare his life! But you did not beg for Nago, did you?

Moro: Nago was afraid to die. Now, I too, carry within my breast a poisoned human bullet. Nago fled, and the darkness took him. I remain, and contemplate my death.

San, The Princess Mononoke: Mother, please ask the Forest Spirit to save you!

Moro: I have lived long enough, San. Soon, the Great Forest Sprit will let me rest forever.

San, The Princess Mononoke: All these years, you’ve defended the Forest Spirit! He *must* save you!

Boar in Okkoto’s Tribe: You are not fooling us! Nago was beautiful and strong! He would not have run from anything! You wolves must have eaten him!

San, The Princess Mononoke: Quiet! Watch what you say, you filthy pig!

Lady Eboshi: Does that right hand of yours wish to kill me, Ashitaka?~~~ Princess Mononoke Quotes

Prince Ashitaka: If it would lift the curse, I’d let it tear you apart. But even that wouldn’t end the killing now, would it?

Lady Eboshi: No, it wouldn’t. It would have to kill all of us to be at peace.

Okkoto: Look on my tribe, Moro. We grow small, and we grow stupid. We will soon be nothing but squealing game… that the humans hunt for their meat.

Gonza: Huh?

Gonza: Traitor… *You’re a spy for the wolves, aren’t you?*

Gonza: Stay back…! Uh… Halt – !

Prince Ashitaka: Step aside.~~~ Princess Mononoke Quotes

Moro: Now leave this place at sunrise. Return, and I shall kill you.

Lady Eboshi: Stay here. Help me kill the Forest Spirit, Ashitaka.

Prince Ashitaka: You would do that? Kill the very heart of the forest?

Lady Eboshi: Without that ancient god, the animals here would be nothing but dumb beasts once again. Once the forest has been cleared and the wolves wiped out, this desolate place will become the richest land in the world… and Princess Mononoke will become human.

Prince Ashitaka: “Princess Mononoke”?

Lady Eboshi: Princess of the spirits of ghouls, beasts, and ancient gods. The wolf stole her soul, and now she lives to kill me.

San, The Princess Mononoke: All right, what do you want here?

San’s Wolf Brother: Apes! How *dare* you show such disrespect to the wolf clan!

Ape Tribe: This is our forest.

Ape Tribe: The human… Give him to us.

Ape Tribe: Give us the human and go.

San’s Wolf Brother: *You* go, before my *fangs* find you.

Ape Tribe: We will not go.

Ape Tribe: We will eat the human.

Ape Tribe: Yes… we will eat the man creature.

Hii-sama: My prince, are you prepared to learn what fate the stones have foretold you?

Prince Ashitaka: Yes. I was prepared the very moment that I let my arrow fly.

Prince Ashitaka: It’s a trap. No, wait! Princess of the wolf-gods, don’t go down there! Go back to the forest! Listen to me, please, don’t throw your life away!

Gonza: Shall I stop him?~~~ Princess Mononoke Quotes

Lady Eboshi: Leave him be. Let him do as he likes.

San, The Princess Mononoke: Wolf howls in distance, readies knife and charges down roof towards Lady Eboshi

Amishi Elder: I am the eldest of the Amishi. Our tribe was driven here by the ravages of the Emperor. Now our youngest warrior must cut his hair and go off into the unknown? Sometimes I think the Gods are laughing at us.

Jigo: Give the head back now? Come on, boy. Don’t be silly. Now, when the sun’s about to come up? Look! He’s a brainless, life-sucking god of death. At sunrise he’ll vanish like a bad dream.

San, The Princess Mononoke: No! I don’t wanna become a demon! Please stop, Okkoto!

San, The Princess Mononoke: Go away.

Jigo: Are you selling soup or donkey piss?

Jigo: What do you say we give ’em a little demonstration of how fast we can run, huh?

Lady Eboshi: It’s Moro!

Toki: Big dope. Don’t ask me why I love him.

Jigo: Wanting everything between Heaven and Hell is the human condition.

San, The Princess Mononoke: Are you crazy? Just what happened to make the ape tribe change this way? Since when do apes eat the flesh of a man?

Ape Tribe: If we eat the human, we will steal his strength, and we will drive the other humans away.

Ape Tribe: Give us the man creature.

San, The Princess Mononoke: Stop this. You know you can’t possess the humans’ strength by eating them. All that’ll do is make you into something else, something even worse than human.

Ape Tribe: We plant trees. Humans tear them up. The forest does not come back. If we kill the humans, we will save the forest.

Ape Tribe: You mustn’t give up. We’ll find a way. The Forest Spirit is with us. Go on planting your trees and someday we’ll beat them.

San’s Wolf Brother: ENOUGH! I’ll *bite* your head off, you chattering ape.

San, The Princess Mononoke: Stop! Wait! Come back! Leave them alone!

San, The Princess Mononoke: Don’t worry about them. It’s all right.

Boar in Okkoto’s Tribe: We are here to kill the humans and save the forest. Why are there humans here, Moro?

Moro: Humans are everywhere these days. Go back to your own mountain. Kill them there. The girl is San, my daughter.

Boar in Okkoto’s Tribe: We will kill them here. We will save this forest. What is that other human doing here?

San, The Princess Mononoke: He was shot, and then the Great Spirit healed his wound. This man is not our enemy!
