When a player gets a draw, what will originally happen is Bomberman will fall one by one on the screen in the Japanese version. Getting a draw in the International version will cause the letters of "draw" to come one by one on the screen, but no Bombermen fall on the screen.
Some of the Bomberman sprites seen in the Japanese version have some of the wrong color palettes from previous Bomberman games. The International version fixes many of these sprites color palettes which include the Bombermen from stage 3, all of the Mecha Bombers, and all of the Bomberman victory poses. There is one shading error in the English version on the black Bomberman's victory pose.
Moguchan, an enemy from Stage 3, originally had his mouth opened and his color palette was brown and red. The International version lost his mouth and had his color scheme changed to green and purple. This was probably done because the original design could be interpreted as a negative racial stereotype of African-Americans.
