Conan the Destroyer

Continuity mistake: When Zula is fighting Bombaata, she leaps from the saddle and throws herself on him, knocking his head-circlet off from the impact of collision. In the very next shot, Bombaata's circlet is back on his head as he struggles with Zula.

Continuity mistake: Inside Toth-Amon's icy castle, just as the heroes climb up onto the steps from the water, only the thief is soaking wet as he emerges; the other heroes seem to be relatively dry.

Continuity mistake: When Conan is fighting the half lizard/man monster, the first two times Conan smashes glass panes, you see large gashes appear across each of the monster's pectoral (chest) muscles. Later in the fight the wound on his right pectoral disappears and reappears numerous times.

Continuity mistake: When the Dagoth-monster manifests and kills the Queen, Conan is already covered in blood from having fought guards, but as the battle with Dagoth continues he gets progressively cleaner.

Continuity mistake: Watch the shot where Bombaata is smashing a hole in the rock wall with his mace-axe weapon. From the outside it appears as though an entire section of the wall is giving way, then the camera cuts to Bonbaata on the inside and he is smashing at a rather small hole in the otherwise intact wall. (01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: Two horsemen try to entrap Conan in a net during the opening fight sequence. He rolls under the net, grabs it and gives it a mighty heave, sending both horsemen sprawling, and then drops the net over Valeria's stone altar. A few shots later, the altar is bare and the net is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film, Conan is attacked by several horsemen. As the first one comes riding past him, he grabs the man from the saddle and flings him to the ground. The next shot shows that same man flying through the air screaming.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the fight in the temple, Conan throws his dagger and kills a soldier. The huge fight kicks off and the heroes collect the jewell and escape up the secret passage. When Conan remounts his horse, the dagger is in its sheath in his belt.

Continuity mistake: In the shot of Conan and his party riding horses through the woods on the way to recruit Akiro the wizard, at one point Akiro is visible riding along with them (he is last in line). The next shot then shows Akiro bound and tied over a fire where Conan rescues him.

Continuity mistake: Before entering the room with the wizard leader, Zula tosses the torch into a cubbyhole in the wall, but the cubbyhole isn't lit up by the torch as if it went out (or fell down a shaft). However, when escaping, Akiro grabs the lit torch out of the same cubbyhole, which is lit up by the torch (and he didn't use his magic to relight the torch).
