Arrow

Season 1 generally

Deliberate mistake: Whenever Deathstroke is on screen, he has three grenades for a launcher strapped to his chest. But on closer inspection, you can see these grenades are actually BB-gun grenades: You can tell by the very distinctive holes at the tip. They did this because launched grenades are A) very expensive and B) not very safe to walk around with on set. A few of the most noticeable times are when Yao Fei is fighting him when he is freeing Oliver in episode 5 and when Oliver is talking to him in episode 14.

The Magician - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Oliver meets Thea at the Grind and Jot Cafe (Which looks unsurprisingly like CC Jitters) you can see the cups on the table are from CC Jitters. (00:20:50)

Guilty - S3-E6

Trivia: Oliver sticking an arrow in a boxing glove to knock out Ted without harming him is a nod to the comics, where a boxing glove arrow was quite common in his arsenal of trick arrows. (00:26:20)
