In the famous scene of the Karate Kid when we find out Mr. Miyagi is a karate expert, he saves Daniel by beating up the Cobra Kai. He does so using knees to the stomach on two of them, a groin kick on another and finally on Johnny, he flips him over and karate-chops him. The next day in school though, the Cobra Kai are shown with their new injuries in places where they were never attacked. Johnny has a black eye and Tommy has a sling on his shoulder to name a few.
Ali has her hair in a clip when at the arcade,and when Daniel tries to say sorry a few seconds later her hair is in a hairband.
When Daniel first fights Johnny on the beach Johnny is holding Ali's radio. The speakers are facing Daniel and he forcefully shoves the radio into Daniel's chest causing him to fall down on his back. When he lands the speakers of the radio are facing Johnny. They should still be facing towards Daniel's chest.
When the girls at school ask Daniel what kind of bike he has, he replies "A Miagi Turbo". This is apparently refering to the fix up job Mr. Miagi did on the bike that Daniel wrecked and threw in a dumpster. However, it's not until a later scene that Mr. Miagi presents Daniel with the salvaged bike.
If you notice, Mr. Miaygi is wearing the headband in the beginning of the movie, then he uses it as a rag to wipe off Daniel's face and later Daniel is wearing it on his head.
Karate Kid 1
In the final fight between Johnny and Daniel, just before Johnny grabs Daniels left leg to elbow it and injure it more, I can see Daniel take his right hand and motion 3 times to his left leg-injured left leg to remind Johnny to grab his leg and elbow it. This makes Daniel fall to the ground and thrive in pain again.
When he is training and kicking the tree you can see blood pouring down his leg....but after he falls to the ground and his "girl" comes to clean it up, there isn't much blood at all.
In the final fight scene (where they've dipped their hands in glass you know that would naturally leave some nasty lacerations to any part of the body when hit, but you never see any really blood or anything after quite a few of the punches.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
When the main character's girlfriend is in the bathroom and the little clown comes out of the toilet, you can see the puppeteer's arm in the toilet.
