Corrected entry: Near the end, the satellite SOL shoots its first blast to Tetsuo and harms him very badly despite his great powers (he even loses his right arm). But Kaneda, who is only a couple of meters away from Tetsuo and has no special powers, manages to survive in perfect condition.

Correction: The blast was directly on Tetsuo, so Kaneda probably got lucky and was sheilded by flying debris from the actual "power" of the blast.

Continuity mistake: When Kaneda shoots Tetsuo with his laser gun, it makes a hole on his shirt. In the next scenes, the hole is gone.
