Angel - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Vampires can't enter a house unless invited. Throughout Buffy this appears to be some kind of force field, as if the vampire has run into a brick wall. But in this episode, the vampire chasing Buffy and Angel gets its arm through Buffy's front door.

Same Time, Same Place - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: In episode 'Same Place, Same Time', Gnarl cuts Dawn across the stomach paralysing her and ripping her shirt, but when Buffy and Xander are carying her home there is no tear in her shirt or any blood.

The Pack - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Willow hides under the table in the classroom after fleeing The Pack, we see that it is on legs and doesn't touch the floor. Yet when Xander comes in and scans the room, he sees the table but Willow's feet aren't visible, even though they should be judging by the height of the table from the floor.

Witch - S1-E3

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
