Continuity mistake: When Deckard shoots the snake-woman in the back and she falls through several layers of glass she lands on her stomach, with her head lying on the left side. In the next scene Deckard is standing beside her, but now she has turned her head, lying on the other cheek. Her arms also change position. (00:58:30)
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. (00:09:00)
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. (01:37:20)
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. (00:05:20)Quantom X
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. (00:28:40)Quantom X
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. (00:10:25 - 00:11:10)Quantom X
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: 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.

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. (00:09:00)Quantom X
Other mistake: When Deckard visits the Tyrell Corporation, he prepares to test Rachel with the "VK" machine. He is shown putting his briefcase of the table and lifting the "VK" machine out and onto the table. If you look closely, the "VK" machine is already on the table and Harrison Ford is miming the lifting - there is nothing in his hands! (00:19:45)
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.
