* BloodlessCarnage: Many people throughout the film are stabbed, chopped, or shot with arrows. Yet not a single drop a blood is ever seen.

** In fact, there are only two scenes with any blood whatsoever; [[spoiler: under Broken Sword after he's killed by Flying Snow in the first version of the story and on the sword Fading Moon throws at Flying Snow the scene after.]]

* ImportationExpansion: The opening and closing sequences of the American version was changed. Changes for the opening sequence include the addition of a map of ancient China and a different description; the line "In any war there are heroes on both sides..." is not present on the original Chinese version. Also, the closing sequence have a different description; in the original Chinese version, it was not outright stated that [[spoiler: Nameless was executed as an assassin but buried as a hero]]. That line was presumably added to make it [[ViewersAreMorons easier for viewers to understand]] that [[spoiler: Nameless was given a hero's funeral]].

* AnachronismStew: In the North American promotional poster, the sword held by Nameless was [[http://i.imgur.com/rV5o8ki.jpg replaced]] by a Japanese katana. Katanas were invented around 1600 years after the period in which this film is set.

Jet Li plays Wu Ming ("[[NoNameGiven Nameless]]"), ostensibly a minor official who claims to have vanquished three assassins out to kill the King (Broken Sword, Long Sky and Flying Snow) before he has a chance to declare himself Emperor. As he [[WholeEpisodeFlashback tells his story]] to the terminally paranoid King, [[MagicalRealism things turn out]] [[RashomonStyle not to be as]] [[GambitPileup they seem]].
