** For the [[GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion 2.0 version]], some roles were recast with more current actors (at the time) from ''[=SAC=]''. The Puppet Master's original actor, Creator/IemasaKayumi, was replaced by Prime Minister Kayabuki's actress, Creator/YoshikoSakakibara. There's also the Section 9 operators who were voiced by Atsuko Hayashida in the '95 cut but were redubbed by the [=SAC=] actress Eri Ono for 2.0.

* TheOtherDarrin: The [=PS1=] video game replaced everyone on the Japanese side of things, most notably with Creator/HiromiTsuru replacing Creator/AtsukoTanaka as Motoko herself. Bizarrely, Shinji Ogawa, who appeared in the first movie as a foreign minister, replaced Creator/JojiNakata as Batou. Soichi Ito replaced Tamio Oki as Aramaki, Creator/HirotakaSuzuoki replaced Creator/KoichiYamadera as Togusa, and finally, Creator/KiyoshiKobayashi replaced Yutaka Nakano as Ishikawa. Mostly averted with the English version, which kept most of the original movie's cast, the only exception being Ishikawa, whose original actor, Michael Sorich, was replaced by the late Creator/BobPapenbrook.

** In 2002, Mimi J. Woods, the original English Motoko, moved away from Los Angeles, effectively retiring from acting altogether, so Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn replaced her in ''Innocence'' and most of everything else in the ''[=GITS=]'' animated franchise. Many consider Mary's take to be the one they prefer on the English side of things, feeling that Mimi's was too flat by comparison.
** For whatever reason, Michael [=McCarty=] replaced Michael Sorich as Ishikawa in ''Innocence'' and all other bits of L.A.-dubbed ''[=GITS=]'' media. Sorich had already been replaced before in the [=PS1=] game by Bob Papenbrook as noted above.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: While most of the original manga has aged surprisingly well, there are a few bits besides the Soviet Union still existing that remind you this was made in the late 80s/early 90s. The Etorufu storyline features records of illegal real estate deals being stored on half a dozen big ol' CD ROM disks; non-wireless connections are made using thick, industrial-looking cables though this gives the work a nice tangible quality and a lot of the computer equipment is big, boxy and covered in dials, switches and oscillographic displays.

** Weirdly, both of the anime films had different co-producers from Hollywood. The first film was co-produced by Creator/PolyGramFilmedEntertainment through Creator/MangaEntertainment, which retained its share of the rights as it was acquired first by Palm Pictures and then Anchor Bay Entertainment. ''Innocence'', on the other hand, was co-produced by the name you'd least expect to be associated with violent, artsy mecha product, and indeed had no share in its distribution: Creator/WaltDisneyPictures.

* CreatorsFavorite: In the Latin American Spanish dub, Motoko Kusanagi is this for her voice actress, Gabriela Willert, who not only voiced her in the original movie, she also voiced her in the dub of ''Innocence'', despite that movie was dubbed in Cuernavaca, while the original movie was dubbed in Mexico City. And she is working in the dub of the [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex TV series]] as well, despite it wasn't originally dubbed at first.
