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)
