Character error 

In the Streamline dub, Jodo is portrayed throughout the film by Jeff Winkless, but in the climax, he is voiced by Kerrigan Mahan. This is due to the localization team believing that these were two separate characters (Mahan's portrayal is credited to "Goemon's Final Opponent" on the cast sheet").
