When Sen steps in the Black Slug in the boiler room, the slug goes all over the bottom of her foot. When she kneels down next to Haku, the black slug remains are no longer on her foot.
The credits have a series of still images from the film. The last image before the film fades is Chihiro's shoe in the river.
All international theatrical releases, as well as all worldwide home video releases, omit the Toho Company, Ltd. logo seen at the beginning of the Japanese theatrical version; the film simply begins with the Studio Ghibli logo.
