Revealing mistake: During the car chase scene, if you watch the speedometer on the car, it never rises above zero. That and the obviously poor image quality of the "road" in front of them shows that they were using projected film in front of the car.

Plot hole: Right after Bond escapes Blofeld and joins Tanaka and Kissy, they say they need to get to the Control Room (that Bond just left from), they look at the "front door" to the Control Room and Tanaka says "Impossible! It's too well defended!". Why did they not go back the way Bond just came from, through Blofeld's "apartment"? Instead, they fight their way across the entire launching complex and go through another entrance, which ALSO leads through Blofeld's "apartment".

Continuity mistake: When Blofeld is just about to shoot Bond with a Webley & Scott Mk. IV revolver in .455 Webley caliber, Blofeld's hand is hit with a ninja throwing star. However, the gun he drops isn't the Webley, but a Smith & Wesson .38 Special.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Kissy jump into the ocean to avoid the poison gas in the cave, you can see Bond's skin through his shirt. When they come ashore on Blofeld's volcano island, Bond takes off his shirt to reveal a grey ninja outfit underneath, complete with huge rubber suction cups for his hands and knees.

Audio problem: In the volcano's control room, there is a husky guy in red uniform whose only purpose is to open and close the crater. Every time he opens or closes the crater he says with a deep voice, "opening crater, closing crater." When Bond kills him with the rocket cigarette to open the crater and let the ninjas in, and the guards have subdued Bond, the guard in white uniform who closes the crater says, "closing crater," and you can hear that it's the dead husky guy's voice.

Audio problem: During the scene where Bond has to make his way back into the control room, he asks Tiger Tanaka to cover for him. Tiger does so with an MP-40 submachine gun. It's the loudest gun on screen when Tiger is firing it and has the MP-40's distinctive clatter. So far, so good. However, watch the gun's muzzle flashes (the MP-38, MP-38/40, and MP-40 as well as the MP-41 all have cyclic rates slow enough to distinguish between individual shots). When Tiger fires the first burst out of the gun, it corresponds perfectly well with the muzzle flashes. However, after cutting to Bond and then back again to Tiger, something went wrong. The muzzle flashes don't correspond at all to the firing noises from this point onward. In fact, when Tanaka takes his finger off the trigger momentarily to presumably prevent muzzle climb or let the barrel cool for an instant, the firing noises keep going.

Revealing mistake: Upon capturing the Soviet spacecraft, SPECTRE's spacecraft does some attitude maneuvering with small rockets on the side of the hull. The rockets fire visible exhaust from screen-left to screen-right, but flecks of the stuff slow to a halt and accelerate backwards, right to left, exactly as if the spaceship model were standing upright with the camera tilted sideways, which is exactly what was done.

Other mistake: Early in the movie, in the shot of the police vehicle screeching to a halt in front of the hotel Bond is staying at you can see a crowd of people huddled together on the sidewalk with a policeman making sure they stay put.

After the roof is closed, all their ropes should be collected to the right side of the screen after the roof is shut. But the ropes are not gathered to the right side. Similarly, ninjas next enter the crater through the hole blown in the crater roof. But in scenes following the crater explosion, you see ninjas descending into the crater on ropes tided to the under pinning of the crater roof instead of ropes coming through the blown out roof hole. Also, the blown out crater roof hole s not visible in the subsequent scenes.

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.

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.

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.

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.
