Freedom Fighters: The Ray pictureFreedom Fighters: The Ray mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When The Ray lands on the ground regrouping with the other Freedom Fighters, there is a bridge behind him with many civilians walking in the background. The animators took an obvious shortcut here as the civilians in the background just consist of the sprites of about 5-7 different people just repeated over and over again all in their same poses on each copy as they move. One especially noticeable one is a kid walking in an olive gray shirt with his arms up right next to himself over and over again. (00:01:45)

The Humanity Bureau picture

Revealing mistake: At the beginning as Noah's vehicle is reaching the edge of New America, there is a shot of a drone swooping down over a hill to follow him. As the drone comes onto screen, there is dust and debris animated to come up at the camera as it blows around its environment. However this small bit of superimposed bad special effects is the only thing it seems to affect. It swoops down right next to some tall dead grass and other plants, on a dusty hill. But not one item of the real environment is blown or even moves in the slightest from this drone passing by it from inches away. (00:01:30)
