Chariots of War - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Xena leaves Darius' house, where she forgets her chakram. Then there's a shot of her riding Argo, with the chakram attached to her hip. Later Darius shows up to bring the 'missing' chakram to her.

Jack's Revenge

The Greater Good - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: When Gabrielle is hitting her staff against the tree and screaming, if you look carefully for the last hit, the staff is bent. Most of their props were rubber with a metal rod inside them. The actress bent the metal rod because she was hitting so hard.

Callisto - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: When Xena is explaining to Gabrielle what happened at Cirra, her native New Zealand accent can be plainly heard when Xena says "ordinary".

The Reckoning - S1-E6

Factual error: The error begins in this episode and continues in Season 1 Episode 12: "Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts." Near the end of The Reckoning, Xena and Ares are talking about making Xena "the architect of a new world". Xena says that she'll need an army. Ares tells her she can have anyone she wants. She mentions Achilles and Agamemnon in her list of warriors and then follows up by saying "they're long gone." In "Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts," the Trojan War is going on. This is historically inaccurate as Achilles was killed in the Trojan War and Agamemnon was the leader of the Greek forces in the Trojan War and wasn't killed until after it was over. (00:36:25 - 00:37:00)


Callisto - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: When Callisto and Xena first battle on horseback, Xena knocks Callisto's sword to the ground and Callisto escapes. When Callisto is training with Theodorus and the army at their hideout, her sword has reappeared, although she didn't pick it back up at the village.

Callisto - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: When Xena starts chasing down Callisto after the attempt on the Oracle's life she has her sword in the sheath on her back, as can be plainly seen when she jumps on Argo. A couple of seconds later, there are a few shots of her charging after Callisto without her sword, which comes back in the sheath once the chase gets in open field. (00:23:00)


Mortal Beloved - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: When Marcus is hanging off a wall in Hell and under attack from a harpy, there's a shot of Xena jumping on said wall to help him. When she lands, you can see the pavement give in a little, like it's made of rubber instead of stone. (00:35:45)


Hooves & Harlots - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Xena is fighting Celano, right after he grabs his knife to try and kill her, the shot changes to Xena, who after dropping back to the ground is supposed to be unsheathing her sword, but actually has it out already and just pretends to. (00:39:00)
