Continuity mistake: Before Nemo is initiated into the Tank Gang, Brother Bloat introduces the Ring of Fire. Bloat then retreats and goes between the on-looking fish. In the next shot Bloat is on the outside/right. In the following shot Bloat is again in the middle. (00:38:15)

Deliberate mistake: When Dory is inside the whale, she doesn't have the scars from the jellyfish sting anymore. [This is actually a long-standing Disney tradition. The company seems to believe that it is less traumatic to see violence onscreen if the evidence is gone immediately (blood, scars, etc. always disappear). Still an error, but it wasn't the fault of the CGI animators.] (01:09:30)

Continuity mistake: As the fishing net is being pulled up, a fisherman is shown to the left of two wires on the boat leaning on his elbow. Then in the very next shot, the fisherman is in between the two wires, and now he is leaning on his hand.

Factual error: At the end of the movie it shows all of the aquarium fish in the ocean inside of their bags. It also shows the bags almost completely out of the water with only a small portion under water while the bags are almost completely filled with water. With this amount of water the bags should be submerged underwater with only the little amount of air showing on the surface, because water is not lighter than water; water weighs the same.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Marlin gets the fishing net off Nemo and talks to him a little about sea turtles, the rocks and seaweed nearby change between shots.

Marlin: If this is some kind of practical joke, it's not funny, and I know funny. I'm a clownfish.
