Delenda Est - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: When Dylan and Tyr head to a bridge where supposedly the power source is located as well as Rommie, they start to cross the bridge. As the camera is facing Dylan and Tyr, the next scene two aliens teleport in. Rewind the video to facing Dylan and Tyr and play in slow motion. Watch the bottom portion of the screen and notice the top portion of one of the alien's head go into the camera as if the aliens walked into position for the teleportation.

The Scarab Lives! - S1-E1

Plot hole: There is a "scarab alarm" when the blue scarab arrives, Shaggy even comments on hearing this. The problem is, The Blue Scarab is a comic book, so the villain and Shaggy wouldn't know what the Scarab alarm sounded like.

Remembrance - S1-E1

Character mistake: Picard and Data are playing poker at the beginning of the episode. Before the actual faces of the players are revealed, we are shown close-ups of their hands as they put down the chips for the bet. When Picard says his first line in the series it's "See", and it is literally true, because in the previous shot, Data put his 5 cards down on the table and face up. (00:00:50)

Worlds Collide: Part 3 - S3-E6

Plot hole: In their previous encounters with the Triceratons, the Turtles had to learn the hard way that the Triceratons breathe not oxygen but a combination of nitrogen and sulfur, which is detrimental to most Earth lifeforms, and thus had to wear special rebreathers. When the Turtles, Splinter, April and Casey enter Zanramon's throne room along with Traximus, none of them wear any breathing equipment to protect themselves from the hostile atmosphere.

Suggested correction: "Wirewolf" originally aired on October 28, 2000 while "Revenge of the Monsters" originally aired on November 14, 2000. In the context of the show, there's no continuity mistake. When they reordered the show and put them into Season 1 and Season 2, the first 7 episodes of season 2 are out of order (according to original air date). For example, s02e01 aired after s01e14.

Even though "Revenge of the Monsters" aired on November 14, 2000, and as a season one episode, the episode "Wirewolf" is a Season two episode so it still constitutes as a continuity error.

No. You missed the point completely. "Wirewolf" was produced BEFORE (production code 011) "Revenge of the Monsters" (production code 045). Therefore, there is no continuity error for the show. The order of the episodes were then later changed, which isn't the fault of the show. If you watch the episodes in order they were produced instead of the order they're listed in IMDB, there isn't a mistake.

Power Broker - S1-E3

Factual error: Every guard in the prison has the emblems of Hamburg on his/her shoulders of the uniforms. Zemo is said to be imprisoned in Berlin, so they are wearing the wrong emblems.

Monkey Fun - S2-E13

Other mistake: Season 2 episode 13 "Monkey Fun": Just before the enlarged Titano appears at the zoo, there is a family watching normal-sized monkeys in a cage. The family father (farthest on the right) has a drawing disorder with his eyes: their pupils look up and down, respectively, giving him a rather goofy expression.

Yesterday's Lie - S2-E10

Plot hole: During Vee's flashback, she sees that Luz is a human, and then sneaks through Eda's portal door while Eda and Luz are distracted by the crowd. However, during the first episode when this flashback takes place, Eda closes the portal door way before the crowd even shows up. (00:12:27)

Whinfrey's Last Case - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: The opening scene was shot twice, complete with a rear-end automobile collision in the foreground for both takes. The initial collision destroyed the taillights of the first car and the headlights of the second car and ruptured the second car's radiator on impact, spilling its contents into the street. The production crew attempted to sweep away the debris with a broom before the scene was reshot. If you examine the roadway before the two cars appear in this scene, you will see a prominent splatter on the pavement that has been swept with a broom almost precisely where the cars impact again moments later.
