* AdaptationDyeJob: The series was never consistent as to which Lee brothers had which hair color. In the first arcade game, Player 1 (or Hammer, as he was originally named) wore the blue outfit and had the blond hair, while Player 2(or Spike) had the red outfit and brown hair. This was changed in the NES version, where Billy wore the blue outfit and had reddish brown hair, while Jimmy wore the red outfit and had blond hair (aside from a brief scene where it's blue). Their respective sequels followed suit, although the arcade version of ''Double Dragon II'' deviated from this pattern a bit by having the Lee brothers wearing black and white during gameplay while depicting them with their "switched" hair colors from the NES version during the ending photograph. Later games in the series tend to switch back and forth between one set of hair colors or the other, depending on the developer.

Added DiffLines:

* BroadStrokes: Even when games are in the same continuity, continuity is not a strong suit of the series. ''II'' had [[spoiler: Billy and Jimmy both alive and working together]] despite the events of the original, while ''IV'' (a direct sequel to ''II'') has [[spoiler: Marian alive to be kidnapped]].

** The boss characters in the first arcade game. The Mission 1 boss is a black head-swapped version of Abobo with a mohawk, slightly larger eyes and a beard who could easily pass himself off as MrT, while the Mission 2 boss is a head-swapped Lee brother in green clothing.

** An unrelated ''Double Dragon II'' was released for the Game Boy in 1991. It is actually a localization of a ''KunioKun'' game.

** The NES version of the first game took a cue from ''[[KunioKun Renegade]]'' and added a Sit-on Punch to Billy's attack repertoire, allowing him to pin down fallen enemy grunts and punch them while they're down.

** The end of Mission 1 in the first arcade game has a billboard for ''[[KunioKun Nekketsu Koha Kunio-kun]]'', the Japanese version of ''Renegade'' and Technos Japan's previous beat-'em-up, in the building just before the first boss battle.
