At the Statue of Liberty, Remo wraps a rope around a boomer's neck and throws him out of the lift, and the rope jerks taut with a sound that implies the man's neck has broken. Afterward, the man is shown hanging from the rope by his foot.

At the beginning of the elevator fight on the Statue Of Liberty, Remo opens the top of the elevator and hits the first guy with some sort of pole and we see him fall to the floor.

At the Coney Island ring toss, Chiun throws five rings; we hear and see six rings land on the bottles. In the shot of the six rings, all of them have come to rest, yet we can still hear one ring whirling around the neck of a bottle.

When Remo is first approached by the thugs, we see that he is standing on the scaffolding even with Lady Liberty's face. He then gets forced backwards, grabs onto a pole that breaks free and swings out away from the statue. The shot from below shows Remo, hanging from the pole, at the height of Liberty's feet. He then slides down the pole to the next lower level, and then is back on the scaffolding even with Liberty's face.

When Remo climbs down the hill to search the wreckage of the logger's truck in search of Chiun, we see the truck wreckage in a different setting (more trees, different topography, different placement of scattered debris, etc.) than the setting in which we just saw the truck come to rest a moment earlier.

When the Dobermann follows Remo across the wire, the Dobermann's feet disappear behind a matte painting used to conceal the flat surface. The wire itself is invisible, with only the division between the matte and the background defining it. At the end of the shot the Dobermann even starts to run across the "wire".
