Other mistake: When Conan is fighting the Ape-man and his friends are watching behind the mirror, the cold air on their breath is actually cigarette smoke. You can see it swirling every time they speak. In one shot you can actually see Malak's hand move behind the other actor and he's holding the cigarette. I think this is why there are audio problems here, they had to dub the voices in because the actors couldn't speak with the smoke in their mouths. DVD viewing.
Revealing mistake: Conan and his party flee from the temple guards and escape into the crypt, closing the huge stone door behind them. A moment later, the camera shows the leader (Ferdinand Mayne) standing at the foot of the steps holding a torch. He chucks the torch out of sight to his right and begins walking towards the door. If you look closely you'll see the torch disappear nicely out of sight behind the wall as if he had "passed" it to someone standing there.
Trivia: Most people should already know this, but Sven-Ole Thorsen (Titus of Gaul from Gladiator), who played Thorgrim (one of Thulsa Doom's henchmen) in Conan the Barbarian, was given another role in Conan the Destroyer as Togra, the leader of the horsemen who fought one-on-one with Conan sometime in the middle of the film.
