Revealing mistake: Just minutes after Rocky's creation, when he is lifted out of the tank, there is a nice close-up of Rocky's face. The newly created man with the "Charles Atlas seal of approval" has a few silver fillings in his upper right teeth, which are easily visible as he sings, "Over my head and I've got the feeling..."

Revealing mistake: When Rocky climbs the RKO tower, he carries lifeless Frank-N-Furter on his back. In the wideshots facing the stunt doubles' backs, while Rocky has both of his hands on the tower, the very much dead Frank-N-Furter has his right arm firmly around Rocky's neck to hang on.

Continuity mistake: When Janet rips the front of her white slip, the ripped strip of cloth is much larger than the bit she places on Rocky in the next shot. (00:55:45)

Continuity mistake: When Riff Raff kills Columbia, she falls beside the spotlight, whose tripod base is at the aisle, directly behind three beach chairs in the last row. But when Riff Raff turns back around, the spotlight is gone and the last row consists of two beach chairs. (01:30:00)

Revealing mistake: After Frank-N-Furter pulls the lever to immobilize Janet, Brad and Dr. Scott, Janet's feet are positioned close together when Frank-N-Furter shouts, "Planet Schmanet Janet,", but when she screams, "Stop!" her supposedly immovable feet now have a space of about 2 ft. between them.

Continuity mistake: When Frank-N-Furter steps out of the pool, the heart 'tattoo' on his right upper arm (deltoid area) is smudged and runny, but is near perfect in a following shot.

Visible crew/equipment: When Eddie rides his motorcycle on the lab's upper level, in the second shot from behind him, just as he veers a bit to his left, the equipment attached in front of the windshield becomes visible (at the left). It's gone in other shots. (00:44:35)

Visible crew/equipment: On his motorcycle, when Eddie begins to ride to the lab's upper level, in the first shot from behind him, the shadow of the camera/equipment is visible on his back as he is moving. (00:44:30)

Visible crew/equipment: In the lab, just after Brad is Medusa-fide, when Frank-N-Furter steps in front of Dr. Scott, two moving reflections are visible on the surface of Rocky's tank. One is Frank-N-Furter's and the other is the camera moving right behind him. (01:12:35)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie escapes the deep freeze, he wears three rings on his left hand: his middle, ring and pinkie fingers. Bizarrely, the pinkie ring actually disappears in quite a few shots, including when Eddie plays the sax and when he lifts Columbia, just before they mess around on the floor. (00:42:30)

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Scott's wheelchair is being pulled by Frank-N-Furter's magnet, just after passing Magenta and Columbia, Dr. Scott soars up the next flight of stairs. Look between the cobwebby banister bars and you'll notice that the 'stairs' are actually a flat surface. (01:01:20)

Continuity mistake: During dinner, the Stein mug in front of Rocky (not Dr. Scott's) switches repeatedly, from being to the right his plate to the left of his plate. Additionally, plates/serviceware appear and disappear from the table.

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Janet catches the bouquet and shouts, "I got it," as she jumps up and down, she holds it in her left hand in the close-up, but in the next shot it's in her right hand. (00:06:15)
