* NoOSHACompliance: Seems to be a running theme at the OSS; the office belonging to the head of the agency being a desk sitting atop a high-rise platform which is only reachable by moving steps, all within the center of a large ''chasm''.
** The OSS lab in the third film is equally egregious, with dozens of "cubicles" jutting out from the walls for several stories upward with zero room to move or any practical way to get down. Even worse, they're ''not enclosed''.

Right after he opens the doorway to the fifth and final level, The Real Guy is struck by lightening which [[OneHitKill One-Hit Kills]] him instantly (in-spite of his 100 lives). Judy is then reinstated as The Guy shortly after.
