Revealing mistake: When Rocky climbs the RKO tower, he carries lifeless Frank-N-Furter on his back. In the wideshots facing the stunt doubles' backs, while Rocky has both of his hands on the tower, the very much dead Frank-N-Furter has his right arm firmly around Rocky's neck to hang on.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: Just minutes after Rocky's creation, when he is lifted out of the tank, there is a nice close-up of Rocky's face. The newly created man with the "Charles Atlas seal of approval" has a few silver fillings in his upper right teeth, which are easily visible as he sings, "Over my head and I've got the feeling..."Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Rocky lifts Frank-N-Furter's body Rocky is barefoot, wearing only the stockings. When Rocky is climbing the RKO tower, carrying his creator, evidently Rocky is wearing a type of thin shoes under his stockings. The stunt double did this as a safety precaution.

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Scott's wheelchair is being pulled by Frank-N-Furter's magnet, just after passing Magenta and Columbia, Dr. Scott soars up the next flight of stairs. Look between the cobwebby banister bars and you'll notice that the 'stairs' are actually a flat surface. (01:01:20)Super Grover
Revealing mistake: After Frank-N-Furter pulls the lever to immobilize Janet, Brad and Dr. Scott, Janet's feet are positioned close together when Frank-N-Furter shouts, "Planet Schmanet Janet,", but when she screams, "Stop!" her supposedly immovable feet now have a space of about 2 ft. between them. (01:10:50)Super Grover
Revealing mistake: In the laboratory, when the tank is unveiled, fishing lines are visible strung across the top of the tank (probably to keep the red sheet from dipping down into the water). Watch closely in the reverse shot after Magenta and Columbia throw off the sheet. (00:33:45)
Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when the castle shoots into space, if you look just as it gets really misty, in the background (it's maybe just centimetres off) you can see the real castle. The one that blasts off is a cutout. (01:34:10)
Frank-N-Furter: Oh, I just love success.
Riff-raff: He's a credit to your genius, master.
Magenta: A triumph of your will.
Columbia: He's okay.
Frank-N-Furter: Okay? Okay!? Well, I think we can do better then that. [Takes Rocky over to Brad and Janet.] Now, Brad and Janet, what do you think of him?
Janet: Well, I don't like men with too many muscles.
Frank-N-Furter: I didn't make him for you.
