The Final Decision - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The exploding playing card that Gambit uses to destroy a few Sentinels and draw the rest above ground is cleverly shown to be the ace of spades (also known as the death card in some folklore), but the card he is shown charging up before the Sentinels see it is the 2 of diamonds.

The Final Decision - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Gyrich is in the car trying to get Trask on the phone, he is shown to be sitting in the backseat on the passenger side (note the windows immediately to his right and behind him). When his driver crashes the car into a tree, Gyrich is shown exiting the car from the front passenger seat. (00:08:00)

The Final Decision - S1-E13

Plot hole: Magneto states that he went to Washington, DC to witness Senator Kelly's assassination. But Magneto had no way of knowing about the assassination plot. Mystique was the one who was attempting to assassinate Kelly, and Apocalypse was the one who carried out the order. At this point in the show, Magneto had not worked with either Mystique or Apocalypse, and it's highly doubtful that Mystique would leak the plot, since it was supposed to be covert.

The Final Decision - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Cyclops is running through the mine to search for Wolverine and Gambit, he uses his visor to track their location. When the shot changes to a first person view through Cyclops' visor, the background is merely moving up and down. If he was running as the previous shot had shown, the objects in the background from his point of view would become larger as he got closer to them. (00:16:50)

The Final Decision - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Magneto is battling the Sentinels after they have rescued Senator Kelly, bandages suddenly appear on Magneto's right arm, something that's not supposed to be there until after the X-Men have rescued Magneto and patched him up. (00:04:25)

The Final Decision - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Magneto reveals to Senator Kelly that he went to Washington, DC to personally witness his assassination. The flashback to the previous episode reveals that Magneto was watching Mystique (masquerading as Gambit) attempt to assassinate Kelly and the real Gambit's intervention through a window. Magneto can be seen as plain as day watching in the window in the flashback, yet in the actual episode, Magneto is never there. The design of the window is also different, as well as the color of the curtains. The room itself also appears to be smaller in the flashback.

More trivia for X-Men

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why Gambit was featured less and less in episodes as the show went on? He was one of the most popular characters in not just X-Men, but all of Marvel Comics around the time this series first aired, so unless it had something to do with his voice actor's contract, it seems odd they wouldn't have utilized him more.
