- In the 2014 remake, after you defeat General Mikiel, he laughs and says that Hiryu stands no chance because he has a gun and Hiryu only has a sword—despite how he just took down a giant tank using just that sword. Hiryu reflects the General's single bullet and kills him.
- After Hiryu destroys Mecha Pon, Professor Schlange starts ranting about it but Meio shows up behind him and nonchalantly fries the scientist to a crisp. Hiryu then confronts the villain but gets knocked into a pit with the mechanical gorilla's remains. After that massive fall, Hiryu is seen fine and well, cooly standing with crossed arms over the robot, as if to make up for that brief moment of Cutscene Incompetence.
