Cut scenes: 3:41 min
The German FSK18 version (later re-classified as FSK 16) corresponds to the export version, which was created for English speaking countres. Compared to the Japanese laser disc and the HK DVD, the following scenes are missing her. On the other hand the Hongkong version of the movie is missing two scenes with Yuen Biao, which can be seen in both the English and the Japanese version.
Only the Japanese Laserdisc had outtakes at the end. The German Blu-ray contains all scenes described here and the two additional scenes of the export version, BUT the outtakes were not included. The British Blu-ray released in 2020 corrected this faux pas. It includes all three versions (English / Hongkong / Japanese version) and here the Japanese one really corresponds completely to the Japanese laserdisc.
Only the Japanese laserdisc has a title card for the introduction.

86:58 The slow motion kick is missing. 1 sec
Right from the first frames showing the court, the Hongkong / English version white credits start to roll over the shot. Several more shots of arriving police cars follow, while Jackie and the others can leave comfortably.
With the Japanese version, however, the first shot is shown without credits. In the last 0.5 seconds, the image becomes smaller. From this moment on the follow-up shots of the HK/export version are missing, instead you can see several outtakes on the left side of the picture. In addition, credits are running off in yellow on the right.

Sidenote: For the "English Version" on disc 2 of the UK Blu-ray by 88 Films, all the credits were redone in their original English export version.
