- Bebop and Rocksteady's Transport Module has a sliding door rather than flip-up one when they surface outside the GJB Electronics Warehouse.
- When Shredder and the mutants arrive at the stadium, the interior of their Transport Module is drawn a solid grey with no seats to be seen. They're also drawn off model when they exit the module.
- Rocksteady's strap and dagger are missing when he falls onto Bebop after the flies turn into a big hand and toss him aside, and again when he and Bebop watch the Turtles ripping the roofs off the convertibles.
