Continuity mistake: When we first see Deckard he is sitting down and reading a newspaper. After a little bit of time a seat becomes available at the restaurant across the way. The cook calls him over. Deckard then folds the newspaper once and places it over his head to shield himself from the rain. We see him run across the thoroughfare and off camera. It then cuts to him making his last couple steps to the waiting seat and the newspaper is now folded twice.

Continuity mistake: As Deckard is giving Rachel the V.K. test, it shows that her eyes are a shade of green. Her eyes are actually dark brown.

Continuity mistake: After he finds dead Pris, the blood smears on Roy Batty's lips change. He touches her bloody wound with the fingertips of his right hand and then presses them to his upper lip. You will see two parallel smears of blood. Moments later there is only one smear going from his upper lip all the way to his chin.

Continuity mistake: Just after Rachel asks Deckard if he ever took the VK test himself, she walks in after no response and sees that he has fallen asleep. Before the camera shows him sleeping, she is shown walking into the room, clutching a drinking glass with both hands in front of her. The camera switches to Deckard for a couple seconds, then back to Rachel. She is standing in the same spot, with no immediate area to set the glass down at, but her pose has completely changes where she has one hand on one hip, and the other arm limp at her side. At which point she then reaches forward with her left hand to grab a picture off the piano, and the drinking glass has vanished.

Continuity mistake: As Deckard steps off the trolley when he is chasing down Zhora, a guy with weird sunglasses having flashing lights all over it bumps into him. The next shot is from a different angle, and that guy has vanished.

Revealing mistake: When Deckard has the dream of a unicorn, it races towards the camera and you can see its horn. The horn is wobbly, revealing it's just stuck to a regular horse. [Note: this has been cleaned up for the Final Cut release, but can still be seen in earlier versions of the film.]

Continuity mistake: After Pris and J.F. Sebastian startle each other, they begin to talk for a moment. Watch J.F.'s hands as he says "Don't worry, I won't hurt ya." In the side angle, his left hand is hidden and his right hand is fidgeting with the bag he is holding at his chest. It then cuts to a view from over Pris' shoulder and suddenly his right hand is now hidden from view and it's his left hand fidgeting.

Continuity mistake: After Leon puts his hand in the freezing liquid holding the eyes, warranting several angered scolds from Chew, Chew looks at Roy in puzzlement. Between this shot and the shot after Roy says "Yes... Questions." The head gear on Chew's head moves up on his hat. The position of it changes several times during this scene.

Continuity mistake: After Gaf takes Deckard to his police car to go see Captain Bryant, he looks at a screen that is blue, then turns red and says PURGE. He looks down and to his right when he sees this. Moments later as they are flying in the vehicle, a view from the back seat shows the front dash with two screens. The one in the center, which would have been the one he was looking at since he was looking down to the right, is now much skinnier than it was moments before. It's the one showing green and orange text now.

Continuity mistake: When about to question Leon, Holden asks him "Please don't move." When he does, his right arm is up and he points at Leon for a moment. It then cuts to a close up of the VK and suddenly his right arm is down in front working on the VK. The folding black flap things on the VK are also suddenly up and moving where they were not in the previous shot.

Other mistake: Just before Leon's questioning starts, Holden turns on the VK and the eye monitor censor piece flips out. There is a view from Holden's perspective showing Leon's eye in on the screen, meaning the eye piece has already zoomed in on Leon's eye. Then just after Leon says "Care if I talk?" it cuts to a side angle as he says "I'm kind of nervous when I take tests." This view shows Leon is looking towards the wall at a 90 degree angle away from the VK, meaning the view screen and eye piece could not have been seeing his eye at a frontal view as show in the previous shot.

Continuity mistake: The scene where Roy saves Deckard's life and then dies takes place on a very dark and rainy night. After Roy says his final line, "time to die", the white dove in his hand gets loose and flies away. The next shot shows the bird flying in a totally clear cloudless sky, with lighting that suggests that it is becoming morning. The next shot is of Deckard, back in the heavy rain and total darkness.

Continuity mistake: At Sebastian's place, when Roy kisses Pris on the nose, the powder covering her face and her nose transfers from Pris to Roy, so now Pris's nose is void of powder, but a few seconds later, the powder returns.

Other mistake: When Joanna Cassidy hits Harrison in the neck with the side of her hand, Harrison doesn't react immediately as he should; he reacts, falling backwards, a few seconds after he is hit.

Continuity mistake: Just before Roy kills Tyrell, he says "Nothing the god of Bio-Mechanics wouldn't let you into heaven for." A drop of sweat begins to hang down off Roy's nose, about to fall. The camera changes angles and suddenly the drop has vanished.

Continuity mistake: As Deckard is setting up the VK to test Rachel, one shot shows him adjusting the eye piece with his thumb as she asks if she can smoke. The view from behind his hand shows his thumb up towards the top of the eye piece. But then the film cuts to a view of the other side and Deckard's thumb is now towards the middle of the eye piece.

Audio problem: There is a part in the original version's audio that was changed for the Director's Cut. When Bryant tells Deckard that there are "5 Skin-jobs" walking the streets. It was changed to "4 skin-jobs." However, the change can be heard, the sound of Bryant's voice is noticeably different in the new dubbed line than in any other point during him speaking. The change is jarring and very noticeable. It almost sounds like a totally different person saying the line. This has been fixed in the final cut but exists in all other versions.

Continuity mistake: The Asian chef calls Deckard over to order his food once a seat becomes available. There is a guy in a yellow shirt sitting next to the open seat. A blue bottle of some sorts is right next to this guy's arm. When Deckard comes over, the blue bottle has vanished. It appears again once Deckard sits down to his left by the yellow guy's arm. And then after the chef gives Deckard his food, the blue bottle is suddenly on Deckard's right.

Continuity mistake: While waiting in the rain for his food, the chef across the street calls Deckard to come over. Deckard folds his newspaper and puts it over his head to shield himself from the rain. The paper is folded messily and the crease side is in his hand. When he gets to the other side of the street, the fold is suddenly much cleaner and neat, and the crease side is on the outside, no longer in his hand.

Quotes

Batty: I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die.

Trivia

At the end, Batty gives his 'a time to die' speech on the roof. Rutger Hauer made up the speech himself, between an hour and half an hour before filming the scene.
