Both these movies are set in a similar kinda time period (the beginings of guns and gunpowder) with Princess Mononoke being more fantasical Also they both deal with the conflict of ideals and loyalty.

Armies clash around two characters, who, while they don't trust each other at first, try to make sense of the world. Both deal with the same themes during approximately the same time period. Mononoke is more fantasy, Stranger is slightly more realistic/grittier.
Both movies are set during the late Middle Ages in Japan and feature action with a good variety of pre-modern weapons (e.g matchlocks, spears and bows). Their differences lie in themes; Princess Mononoke is a semi-historical fantasy that focuses on nature vs man conflict (between a forest's denizens and a society of outcasts), whereas Sword of the Stranger is a ronin adventure that focuses even more on action and on feudal wars (including conflict between Ming mercenaries and locals).

Both take place in same period. There is a relationship between the MCs of not trusting each other at the beginning. There are fights, not only duels but also with armies, which are well animated. Princess mononoke is more fantastical and sword of the stranger, more realistic
