Plot hole: Mario is arrested in the beginning of the game after Shadow Mario frames him for the evil paint. But before he is taken into custody, he gets his Super Water back pack called F.L.U.D.D. It is a high pressure water apparatus and a potential weapon. Yet at Mario's trial, and when he's in jail, he still has F.L.U.D.D on his back. The authorities would have taken such a device from him in this situation. Even in a fantasy world such as this, it does not make sense for them to let him keep the artificially intelligent water cannon with him during his trial, much less in jail.Quantom X
Bug: When attacking people in a restaurant, some of them that are sitting will slump over and 'die' with their heads on the table. Yet they are still alive in the game. But you can't lock on to them. You can't kill or hurt them ether. Blood splats, but nothing else. Punching, using melee weapons, shooting, using the chain saw, and even throwing grenades of other uses of explosives doesn't do a thing to them but splatter a little blood. Yet this supposedly 'dead' person will still talk to you if you bump them. Sometimes they'll still do the random compliment or insult and you can still have CJ respond to them.Quantom X
Bug: After the S.S. Anne is gone, go to the guard that says that the ship is gone. After facing him, keep pressing right and then quickly push the START button. Save and reset. If everything's OK, you should continue facing right. Select a Pokémon that knows SURF and use this move. Instead of surfing to the right, you'll surf ON the guard! Press down twice, and you'll enter the S.S. Anne again.Dr. James
Other mistake: In the ending cutscene of Chamber of Secrets, in the background you can see that all of the students are stiffly sitting there with blank faces, and one of them is shaking his head nonstop. In all the other Great Hall cutscenes, each student is moving on their own. The possible issue here is that the animators accidentally submitted an early animation stage.
Bug: If you fall in the water, your hat is temporarily removed, and when you go back to the surface, you have it on again. Well, if you get out of the water, and make Indy fall to the water just in the moment when he's putting his hat back on, it'll fall in the water and you can play the level with no hat.
Continuity mistake: During the Kronos campaign as Chaos, Eliphas the Inheritor can "ascend" to his final Demonic form. However, despite the in-game unit being granted a different, more appropriate voice for his new body, Eliphas still uses his old one for the various bits of communication that go on between him and the other faction Generals.
