Continuity mistake: On the bridge, when Cedric speaks with Harry about the golden egg, in the shots facing Cedric, the wind is blowing Harry's hair back, yet in all the shots facing Harry his hair is still. (01:22:00)

Continuity mistake: In the cemetery, just after Voldemort shouts, "He's mine!" when he faces off with Harry during Priori Incantatem, in this specific overhead wide shot, which is directly over Cedric's body and the Triwizard Cup in the foreground, the Cup is only a couple of feet away from Cedric's feet; whereas in a previous wide shot, when Voldemort says, "Here you stand before me as though it were only yesterday..." both the trophy and Cedric's body are seen at the top of the screen (with the Riddle monument in between), and the Triwizard Cup is quite a distance away, at least 4-5 feet, from Cedric's body.

Continuity mistake: After Fred and George drink the aging potion, when the twins jump over Dumbledore's Age Line, in this overhead shot Hermione sits at the edge of the long bench, with the closed book and crossed legs. Yet, in the next shot, as Fred and George begin congratulating each other, Hermione sits a few feet away from the edge, still with the closed book and crossed legs. (This is before she moves her seat and opens her book.) (00:29:00)

Continuity mistake: Whilst Harry is in the bathtub in the Prefects' bathroom, the foamy bubbles on his face and body noticeably differ between consecutive shots, or disappear then reappear depending on camera angle, particularly when Myrtle is being "attentive" to him. This is not due to his moving the bubbles about. (01:23:45)

Continuity mistake: After Harry overhears Snape and Karkaroff, when Snape confronts Harry and mentions the Gillyweed, the shelves behind the ladder in the store room are quite visible. Once Snape finds the bottle of Veritaserum things behind the ladder differ.

Continuity mistake: After Barty Crouch Jr. says, "I'll show you mine, if you show me yours," when Dumbledore grabs Harry's injured arm, the wound and the way he grips Harry's arm differs between shots. (02:11:20)

Continuity mistake: At the Yule Ball, when Harry, Ron, Padma, Parvati, and eventually Hermione, are sitting at the table, Ron's awful dress robe is lying on the table behind him, and it changes position between shots. (01:17:00)

Continuity mistake: In the Triwizard champions' tent, after Fleur picks her dragon, in the overhead shot Fleur looks up as Madame Maxime stands directly behind her, with her hands on the champion's shoulders. However, in the next shot Madame Maxime leans over as she stands toward Fleur's left, and her hands are off the shoulders.

Continuity mistake: In the cemetery, when Harry stands trapped at the statue, the ripped sleeve and arm cut are visible as his hands grasp the sickle handle, and they both differ between shots.

Revealing mistake: When Dumbledore, Barty Crouch, and the rest are in the Triwizard champions' tent, as Madame Maxime stands behind Fleur with her hands on Fleur's shoulders, in Fleur's close-up it is rather apparent that they are not Madam Maxine's hands.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the Yule Ball, when Ron and Hermione walk to the staircase, seated on the stairs are two girls who are comforting a third girl in the center. When Hermione shouts, "Ron you spoiled everything," the girls' positions change between shots. (01:18:20)

Visible crew/equipment: In a number of shots within various scenes, the reflections of the reflector screen and set lights are briefly visible in the lenses of characters' glasses, such as Rita Skeeter's, or in characters' eyes.

Revealing mistake: In the dining hall, when Dumbledore speaks to the students about the Triwizard Tournament, Hagrid is prominently seen in the background, but it's clearly not Robbie Coltrane in some of these shots and in other scenes throughout the film.

Continuity mistake: At the cemetery, when Harry is trapped at the statue, Voldemort raises his right arm and places his finger on Harry's forehead stating, "I can touch you now." While Voldemort's arm remains raised his sleeve slides down towards his shoulder, but is back up at his elbow in the close-up. He seems to have the same problem in other shots during this scene. (02:01:10)

Continuity mistake: At the Yule Ball, Hermione's hair is done up with the long curl at the back, and at times that long curl is either in front of her shoulders or at her back depending on camera angle. Additionally, even when her hair is normal, it changes in some consecutive shots throughout the film. (01:18:35)

Continuity mistake: In class, when Moody shouts, "And hear across classrooms!" he throws the chalk at Seamus, and the way Seamus ducks over his desk noticeably differs between the two shots; he first leans down on his right arm, then on his left. (00:23:10)

Continuity mistake: At the Quidditch World Cup, when Cornelius Fudge welcomes everyone, the way he is holding the wand to his throat differs in the two shots facing him and the shot from behind. (00:09:10)

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Weasley, HRH, and the rest reach the boot Portkey, to take them to the Quidditch World Cup, in the first close-up of the boot (with the sky behind it) there are many very tall blades of grass on the mound around it. In the next shot, just as they start to encircle the Portkey there are much less single tall blades - before anyone has had a chance to stomp on them.

Continuity mistake: In the Prefects' bathroom when Harry is in the bathtub, just before Harry touches the golden egg and then when he puts his hand on it, both the egg's and his hand's positions differ between shots. (01:23:50)
