Changes From The Original

  • In the beginning Lelouch and Nunnally as children are shown bidding farewell to their siblings before they head off into exile.
  • There is no Kallen shower scene where Lelouch deceives her into believing he is not Zero. Instead there is a scene where Kallen is on the phone with Ohgi and she says she no longer suspects Lelouch because he has a crippled sister whom he takes care for, so he cannot have time to be Zero.
  • Suzaku’s first encounter with Euphemia and Arthur goes differently.
  • The one who shoots Villetta Nu in the movie is Diethard Ried instead of Shirley Fenette.
  • Mao's arc is omitted in the movie.
  • Instead of learning about Suzaku killing his father from Mao, Lelouch sees a memory fragment of the incident when he touches C.C. during the Battle of Narita.
