Deliberate mistake: When Tarzan fights with the leopard, it scratches his chest. However after they fall into the pit and Tarzan comes out carrying the dead leopard, the scratches on his chest have amazingly healed. [It is a long-standing Disney tradition that no evidence of violence is shown on screen. Still a mistake, but there's why].
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jane is telling her father about Tarzan, and Clayton calls it a "girlish fantasy", Tarzan jumps into the camp. Throughout the entire scene, Jane's hair was slightly tied back, but when Tarzan comes very close to her and says "Jane", it's down. The next shot it's slightly up again.
Continuity mistake: As young Tarzan fixes his spear, he's sitting on a moss covered branch, and just behind him on his left is another branch growing from the one he's sitting on. After the shot of the yellow fruit, it returns to Tarzan. Assuming he hasn't moved from his spot, the branch that was behind him should still be there, but isn't.HulkObsessedChick
Plot hole: Kerchak is mad with Tarzan because he showed Jane, Porter and Clayton to the gorilla's current location. Yet he does not move the group even though he obviously knows they're no longer safe there.
Continuity mistake: When Tarzan brings the group to where the gorillas are and they come out from hiding you can see the biggest Gorilla in the middle looks exactly like Kerjack, at a point when Terk and Tantor are suppose to be distracting Kerjack away from the camp.
Factual error: The weight of an elephant is nowhere near that of a large cargo ship so even if Tantor was able to climb up the side of the ship the ship shouldn't have moved.
Continuity mistake: During the fight with Sabor, Kala receives two claw marks on her right cheek. Later, when she reunites with the gorillas, the claw marks are gone.
Continuity mistake: When Sabor's right leg gets caught in some rope, her tail disappears. When Sabor is seen tangled up in rope, her tail reappears.
Continuity mistake: When Sabor attacks Kala and Tarzan, her ears change from black and white to yellow and white when she focuses her attention on Tarzan and to black and white again when she jumps off Kala.
Continuity mistake: When Tarzan is climbing the tree as "Son of Man" starts, the continuity of the bark, vines and moss on the tree doesn't match between shots. Example: Just before he begins to climb, there's no bark on the tree. When he reaches up, there's bark. After he slips, he stops in a barkless area, but it's the same area where there should have been vines and moss as there was previously. After Kerchak passes him, there's more bark on the tree than there was in the previous shot, and so on.HulkObsessedChick
