Star Wars: The Clone Wars picture

Revival - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When the two factions of Hondo's pirates are fighting each other, the ones who sided with Maul and Savage are using blasters that fire red bolts, while the ones that stuck with Hondo shoot blue bolts. When Hondo persuades the traitors to work for him again and they attack the two Sith, all of the pirates' blasters are now firing blue bolts. This is Star Wars, not G.I. Joe, and weapons don't just change colour like that.

Samson & Delilah - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: All shots of the Jeep Cherokee prior to it crashing (and during the process of flipping over) show that it wears factory-optional silver steel wheels of a 'star' style. But as the wreck settles upside-down, it's wearing plain steel wheels (like those found under full wheel covers or on a spare tire).

Triumvirate of Terror! - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: After the opening title sequence, it shows Batman and a reporter tied to a giant bullseye target. She and Batman are equal distance from the center bullseye, and it is about waist level on her. It then cuts to a perspective from Batman's angle, and suddenly the reporter is much closer to the center, and the bullseye is level with her calves. Then when the giant pie is flying towards them, the center bullseye is level with her and Batman's feet. (00:05:05)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season: 1, episode: 16 "Bloodline". As two soldiers of Darken Rahl approach the plains of Morrow, they break a magical shield which catches them on fire. Two frightened soldiers run away, and the commander shoots one. Keep an eye on the commander - he is still pointing the crossbow even after the soldier dies. The next shot, however, has his crossbow loaded with another arrow, daring anyone else to run away.

The Pack - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Mitchell first visits McNair's van, Mitchell's reflection is visible in the window on the left side of the screen during the shot where he first opens the van door. The vampire lore of the show informs the viewer many, many times that vampires (such as Mitchell) and ghosts cannot be seen in reflections, pictures, or videos (their image "cannot be captured"). The reflection can be seen for roughly 20 seconds. (00:23:20)
