Trivia

The military planes invading the Valley have yellow wingtip undersides. The Nazi Luftwaffe had similar yellow identification markings during German invasions of surrounding countries.

Asbel: Why does everything that's good for you have to taste so bad?


Goofs

Crazy Credits

As the credits roll we see life returning to normal in the valley: Kushana, Kurotowa and the Tolmekian fleet leave peacefully, after Nausicaä has unheard words for Kushana. The denizens of the Valley of the Wind replant trees in the burned-down forest. Lord Yupa and Asbel ride Yupa's beasts to the Toxic Jungle and explore it. When the text "The End" appears on screen we see Nausicaa's discarded helmet in the forest, alongside a green, non-Toxic Jungle sapling.


Alternate Versions

Released in the US and Europe in 1985 as "Warriors of the Wind". This version removed nearly 25 minutes of footage (including the entire opening credits sequence, much of Nausicaa exploring the toxic jungle, Yupa and Nausicaa's discussion in her laboratory, flashbacks of young Nausicaa defending the baby Ohmu, Asbel and Nausicaa's dialogue about the nature of the poisonous forest, several sequences leading up to the God Soldier, and the entirety of the ending credits montage save for the very last shot of Nausicaa's hat). In addition, character names were changed and most of the dialogue was completely rewritten with no regard for the film's plot.
