Star Wars: The Clone Wars

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.

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.

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)

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.

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)

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)

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)

Assassin - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: The intro states Aurra Sing is presumed dead on Florrum 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)

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)

Destroy Malevolence - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan Force-pushes the second droideka in the hyperdrive room, it rolls a considerable distance down the catwalk before striking an approaching squad of droids. However, in a following shot from below, the collision is much closer to where Obi-Wan was standing. (00:15:03)

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.

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)

Ambush - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Yoda cuts a hole in one of the droid battle vehicles, and throws the droid out, the following scene returns to Asajj and the Toydarian king. When their backs are shown, Asajj is standing close beside the king, but in the very next shot (showing them from the front), she is obviously a few feet farther from him. (00:17:08)

Voyage of Temptation - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Satine and her guards along everyone else who entered the shuttle at the end of the episode disappear - you can easily see inside the shuttle and through the other window.

The Phantom Apprentice - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: Rex, escorting a captured Gar Saxon, is holding a pistol in his left hand when he stops because he sees where Ahsoka and Maul are fighting on the underside of the city dome. In the next shot, when he points at the fight and orders his men to get the gunships, he's holding a pistol in his right hand instead. (00:23:05)

Grievous Intrigue - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan duels Grievous on the bridge of his Arquitens cruiser, the cyborg General slashes up several computer consoles with some of his four lightsabers. Later, when Obi-Wan sends two clone officers to the bridge to try to detach the ship, the consoles are in the background with no visible damage.

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)

[Another battle droid falls apart.]
Anakin: Eighteen, actually.

Ambush - S1-E1

Question: Why did the king think that Yoda didn't get a fair fight? He agreed to see if Yoda could fight the droids, so why did he think Ventress broke her word after she sent out a bunch of droids?

Answer: I guess that 1) the King assumed that Ventress' droids were meant to capture the Jedi, not kill him outright. When she yells at OOM-224 to shoot Yoda, she evidently failed that expectation. 2) Sending out a bunch of Droidekas after it is plain that Master Yoda has clearly won is not a sign of good sportsmanship, either.
