Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Assassin - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: The intro states Aurra Sing is presumed dead on Florence by the Jedi, but the Aurebesh writing in the archives states she was 'last seen on Coruscant'. Impossible. Perhaps the archives are incomplete? (00:03:33)

Revival - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: When the two factions of Hondo's pirates are fighting each other, the ones who sided with Maul and Savage are using blasters that fire red bolts, while the ones that stuck with Hondo shoot blue bolts. When Hondo persuades the traitors to work for him again and they attack the two Sith, all of the pirates' blasters are now firing blue bolts. This is Star Wars, not G.I. Joe, and weapons don't just change colour like that.

Rookies - S1-E5

Other mistake: The battle droids - including the commando droids featured here - habitually have two broad fingers and a thumb. So how can a commando droid squeeze itself completely into clone trooper armor without its broad fingers tearing open the gloves, since it can't separate its fingers?

Nightsisters - S3-E12

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning, Asajj Ventress is wearing an outfit with a long skirt. When she is rescued from her damaged starfighter by the scavengers, the skirt has vanished. This was done because the animators found the skirt too difficult to animate. This is also why she receives a brand new outfit that never had a long skirt later in the episode. (00:08:20)

Duel of the Droids - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Grievous has received R3's message, he assures the dismembered R2 that he will not come to harm. We see R2's head lying on the dissection table with his electronic eye dangling from a cable. When Grievous stands up again, just before his MagnaGuards enter, R2 has his eye back in place. It's a brief shot, so you'll have to be quick to catch that glitch.

The Deserter - S2-E10

Plot hole: When Lawquane spots the droids in the field, he identifies them instantly as commando droids. But as he had left the Republic Army shortly after the first battle on Geonosis (the one which started the war) and has lived as a farmer ever since, and since the commando droids are relatively new (see "Rookies"), how can he know what they are? With his lack of battlefield experience, he should simply call them battle droids.

Crisis on Naboo - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When Cad Bane is taken into custody by a clone trooper, the trooper changes from a shock trooper to a standard trooper between shots. (00:14:40)

Pursuit of Peace - S3-E11

Other mistake: During Padmé's big speech to the Senate, Duchess Satine is visible in the background watching at one point. Satine is the ruler of Mandalore, a neutral planet, not a Senator, and thus has no reason to be present at a normal session of the Galactic Senate.

2

Mystery of a Thousand Moons - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, the Republic troops blasted huge holes into the Separatist lab to enter it. In this episode, in which the highly contagious airborne virus is unleashed into the facility, the holes are conveniently nowhere to be seen, so it can't get loose onto Naboo.

2

Counter Attack - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Besides Obi-Wan, Even Piell and Commander Cody, the exact number of people in Obi-Wan's group keeps changing.

2

Ambush - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After the droid advance force has split up to hunt down Master Yoda, the Jedi Master and his clone escorts attack each group on their own. When Yoda ambushes his group, it has six battle droids; but he is seen finishing only four of them. The remaining two just vanish from the scene. (00:10:10)

1

Rookies - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: During the end scene, when Echo and Fives are honored for their services, in the first shot, Echo's helmet is missing, despite his arm being positioned as if he's holding it. When his helmet appears, it's missing the red binocular attachment, which only appears later in the scene. (00:22:00)

1

Holocron Heist - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ahsoka leads a captive Cato to Jocasta and asks if she's all right, before they head off to call security, Ahsoka's lightsaber is absent from her belt in the first shot, but present in the second. (00:20:31)

Rookies - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Rex pulls off the helmet of the disguised commando droid, Cody is missing the piece of armour protecting his right thigh. (00:09:37)

Children of the Force - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: The opening scene after the narration shows the end of "Cargo of Doom" again, focusing on the clone troopers, but the details are different, including Anakin and Ahsoka disembarking the shuttle with R2 and some of the clones removing their helmets before leaving, when that didn't happen in the previous episode.

Downfall of a Droid - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Rex's kama (the black kilt-like thing he wears) is missing twice: first when he, Anakin and Ahsoka are looking at a hologram of an AT-TE on the Resolute's bridge, and second when Anakin's trap for Grievous is revealed, and Rex orders the AT-TEs on the asteroids to fire. (00:01:12 - 00:04:10)

The Zillo Beast - S2-E18

Audio problem: When Anakin says, "What? Uh-oh," his mouth does not move. He just looks shocked that his lightsaber could not cut The Zillo Beast.

The Mandalore Plot - S2-E12

Other mistake: Obi-Wan Kenobi discovers the Mandalorians and gets into a fist fight with them, punching one in the face a few times, who reacts with obvious discomfort. But the one hit is wearing Mandalorian armour, famously resistant to all kinds of weaponry, and Obi-Wan is barehanded! The Mandalorian should be laughing off his attempts. Not to mention that later he surprises another armed guard in Mandalorian armour and knocks him out with two barehanded blows to the helmet.

Suggested correction: It must be pointed out that unlike the Mandos he's fighting, Obi-Wan explicitly has supernatural powers, powers that most certainly help with things like punching out people in full armour. Seeing this as a "mistake" is kind of ridiculous in a space fantasy series.

The Gungan General - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: After the shuttle has crashed, there are four surviving clones accompanying Jar Jar. From the beginning of the fight with Turk Falso's group to when they escape out of the large geyser before it goes off, the number of clone troopers keeps fluctuating between four and three, before it stabilizes back to four when they go after the pirates. (00:10:34 - 00:12:03)

The General - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When the 501st are pushing towards the Umbaran Airbase, most of the injured clones Kix drags away are missing their 501st markings, then in the next shot, they have the markings. (00:01:28)

Mystery of a Thousand Moons - S1-E18

Obi-Wan: Very impressive. You just destroyed seventeen defenseless battle droids without suffering a scratch.
[Another battle droid falls apart.]
Anakin: Eighteen, actually.

Clone Cadets - S3-E1

Trivia: Commander Colt watches Domino Squad do their test and says, "Start The Citadel challenge, version THX, variable 1138," which is a reference to THX 1138, another film by George Lucas.

Dooku Captured - S1-E11

Question: When Palpatine sees the hologram of the pirate leader with Dooku, he says that a hologram can be faked, but then he believes the pirate when he sees Dooku's lightsaber. If he thinks that the pirate could have faked the hologram of Dooku, wouldn't it also be reasonable to accuse him of faking the hologram of the lightsaber?

Answer: It is to note that Count Dooku's lightsabers have a very characteristic curve handle. If you wouldn't know what this particular item looked like, you would have a hard time faking it. The sight of Dooku's lightsaber, therefore, had to convince the Jedi about the veracity of the pirate's claims.
