Factual error: When 007 is briefed inside the submarine, there would be no space available to have spacious offices, wooden desks, and book shelves. Most of the space within a sub would be taken up by the equipment necessary for it to function. In addition, such features (desks, chairs, etc.) would add a considerable amount of weight and be difficult to get inside in the sub in the first place.
Continuity mistake: The girl drives away from the wrestling arena sitting in the right seat, but when she drives up to the hotel she's sitting in the left seat. Either a flipped shot or a different vehicle.
Revealing mistake: When Bond exits the room after his meeting with M aboard the submarine, he slams the door, causing the whole wall to move.
Revealing mistake: When Helga traps Bond with a smoke-bomb and wooden restraint in the plane before jumping out to safety, you can see the wooden restraint has a pre-made crack down the centre when Bond eventually breaks loose.
Continuity mistake: When the hired thug is driving a disguised Bond to the Osato Building, the thug looks back at him. The forward view does not show the hood, wheel or dash of the car. After he goes back to driving, Bond peeks up to see where they're going, and now you can see the dash, and wheel. Also, when the thug looks around, the mirror shows only a blurred image of Bond, not the face and back of the thug's head. As Bond sees the building, the camera can now see only the thug's reflection in the mirror. Finally, they were in a downtown area with no dead end in sight. Then suddenly, there's the building. With no turns, that's a fast moving car.
Continuity mistake: In the fight scene in the Osato building, Bond uses a couch as a battering ram against the guy that carried him in. After the third hit, Bond drops the couch after the attacker flips over it onto the floor. The next moment, he has the couch up ram-style, and the other man is back up, in the place where he can be hit again, a good five feet from where he was on the floor on his back.
Revealing mistake: When the camera goes to pan to Tanaka and Bond, watch the monitors behind them. The pictures don't stay within the frames of TV spheres, meaning they're animations poorly edited in.
Factual error: At the dock where Bond and Aki are investigating the Ning-Po, there are cylinders labeled as containing turpentine made by Osato Chemical, but which Bond figures out are really filled with liquid oxygen (LOX), presumably to be incorporated with rocket fuel in SPECTRE's mischievous meddling with other nations' spacecraft. To keep the LOX inside cold and liquid, the container needs to slowly vent oxygen to carry away heat which is constantly entering from outside. This venting would be visible as a stream of water vapor exiting a port, such as what's commonly seen leaking from the sides of rockets which are waiting on their launch pads. There is no such venting, which means the LOX inside will no longer be LOX by the time it gets to where it's going.
Continuity mistake: When Bond and Aki are attacked at the docks in Kobe, Bond tells Aki to go and contact Tanaka. Aki then runs to a rope to let herself down to ground level again. When she grabs the rope her long straight hair reaches down to the middle of her back, yet when the shot changes to her starting to climb down, her hair changes in structure and only reaches down to her shoulders. Clearly a stuntwoman wearing a wig. (00:43:30)
Continuity mistake: In the sequence in which Bond and Aki are being chased by the black sedan, they pass a corner with a sign that reads: "Detour, road under construction" with a red arrow above pointing in two directions. They turn right at the next corner and turn again at the same corner with the same road sign. This second time the scene cuts sooner but it is the same corner. The shot was used twice. (00:39:45)
Continuity mistake: As Bond leaves the building of Osato Chemical and Engineering, a black sedan with gunmen is slowly following close behind. Aki, who had been waiting for Bond, tells him to "get down" just in time to avoid the bullets which cause clouds of brown dust as they hit the concrete wall right behind Bond. The scene cuts to a shot in which we see the sedan speed by, but the clouds of dust have completely disappeared. When the scene cuts back to Bond the dust clouds are there again. (00:39:15)
Continuity mistake: In the sequence showing the black sedan being lifted up by the helicopter, the number of driving lanes changes too rapidly between the shots. When the helicopter is approaching the sedan is driving on a highway with at least four lanes. Right in the next shot it is lifted off a road with only two lanes. In the shot from the helicopter we can see the white Toyota on a highway with four lanes, and the shots out of Aki's Toyota show a rather narrow country road ahead that doesn't even have any markings whatsoever. (00:40:45)
Continuity mistake: When Bond is attacked by the ninja while he is training to be a ninja, Bond grabs the staff with the knife at the end, flips the ninja and stabs him on the left side of his lower back, but when it cuts to the next wide shot, it shows all the blood on the front of the ninja's training top. The only way there should be blood there was if the blade penetrated from the back and out the front, but the blade wasn't anywhere near long enough to go completely through a body.
