Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Ambush - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the battle droid commander orders the tanks to stop because they can't go any further into the forest, the fingers of the droid nearest to the camera clip through the wall of its tank. (00:07:49)

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?

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)

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)

Rookies - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: During the exchange between Hevy and Cutup regarding Echo's enjoyment of their dull posting, the left pauldron of Hevy's armour is positioned weirdly, clipping through his arm at the bottom. (00:01:34)

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)

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)

Hostage Crisis - S1-E22

Other mistake: When Cad Bane orders one of the commando droids disguised as a Senate Commando to finish clearing the platform, the neck area below the helmet shows human skin even though there's now a droid inside the armour. (00:02:07)

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)

Defenders of Peace - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Rex has a bandage on his left arm for the entirety of the episode after getting injured in the previous one. After Aayla destroys the probe droid, in a shot of her, Ahsoka, Rex and Bly walking over to the destroyed droid, the bandage is missing. (00:07:11)

Star Wars: The Clone Wars mistake picture

Ambush - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: For one shot near the start, the lightsabers on Ventress' belt are behind the buckle, but in all other scenes, they are hung in front of it. (00:03:56 - 00:04:38)

Innocents of Ryloth - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Obi-Wan lines up his commandeered cannon for a second shot and Waxer and Boil load in another charge, they grab the ammunition from the same exact position at the top of a stack that they took the first ammunition charge, used for Obi-Wan's first shot with the commandeered gun. (00:21:09)

Innocents of Ryloth - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: Obi-Wan drops his lightsaber during the run-in with the gutkurrs, and Cody is explicitly shown returning it to him after the creatures are contained. However, when Obi-Wan initially releases his control on the creatures, the weapon is visible on his belt. (00:17:24)

Storm Over Ryloth - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: The Resolute's bridges are missing their red colouration when it arrives at Ryloth and moves to angle its hull towards the Separatist ships. (00:20:51)

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.

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.
