* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: In ''The Secret of the Swordfish'', two prototypes of the eponymous rocket plane have already been built before the Empire's global offensive, with Blake testing one right away as the episode starts and the other being blown up during the offensive to avoid capture. The Swordfish first appears much later in the comic book album, at the base in the Strait of Hormuz (it is the third Swordfish in the episode). Blake ''does not test it'' in the comics, he inaugurates it by flying it in battle.

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: Minor one. The opening features three Swordfish fighter/bomber jets flying over Mortimer and Blake. At no point in ''The Secret of the Swordfish'' do we see more than one Swordfish flying (unlike the comics, in which a squadron of them nukes the Yello Empire's heardquarters). There's only the mention by Blake that the free world nations plan to mass-produce it at the end of the episode.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the adaptation of ''The Secret of the Swordfish'', the [[YellowPeril Yellow Empire]] becomes simply "TheEmpire", all its members are now Caucasian, they no longer wear UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-[=era=] Japanese uniforms, they no longer wield Nazi-era guns, their flag isn't the Japanese-looking flag from the comic book, and there aren't any references to their geographic origin. In short: the original ones were a transparent {{expy}} of both UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan and UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, explicitly described as being Tibet and refered with a racist name, while the animated version are generic (and politically correct) bad guys. The Emperor is TheUnseen and his hand is that of a Caucasion, so he's very much not the Tibetan Basam Damdu. Also counts as PragmaticAdaptation.
