Continuity mistake: When O-ren chops of Boss Tanaka's head, the head is going in the direction of the boss to the left of Boss Tanaka. It is already on its way down and at eye level before the shot changes. The next shot we see the reaction of that boss and the other bosses but the head is no where in the shot. The head then reappears in the next shot and lands in front of him.
Continuity mistake: During the fight at Venita's house, she overturns a large shelving unit onto the Bride. A shot from the floor (behind the Bride's head) shows nothing on the floor to the right. As the shelving begins to fall, a basket of magazines suddenly appears and the left edge of the unit is seen falling to the outside of the basket. A moment later Venita bolts for the kitchen and the shot cuts back to the Bride. The basket is now outside the edge of the unit (and some of the shelves themselves have disappeared as well).
Continuity mistake: In the fight scene with Vernita Green when she and the Bride are staring each other down as the school bus pulls up Vernita is holding the knife horizontally with her index finger along the top. The angle of the scene changes and she is holding the knife in the opposite way. When the scene changes back her finger is along the top again.
Continuity mistake: When Vernita Green takes her daughter's picture from the notice board in the kitchen she holds it at the top left corner when the camera is behind her. The shot changes to in front of her and she holds it by the bottom left corner, the shot moves behind her again and she holds it by the top left corner.
Continuity mistake: The Bride kills Vernita in the kitchen then pulls out the knife. When Vernita's daughter enters the kitchen there is a front shot of The Bride holding the knife behind her, hiding it from the child. The camera switches to a reverse angle and The Bride is holding the knife in front of her, in full view of the child.
Continuity mistake: After Black Mamba leaves Vernita's house, she looks at the "Death List Five" notebook page and crosses off Vernita's name. The handwriting on this page (sloppy) differs greatly from that of the list written on the plane (neat) after killing O-Ren Ishii, which is supposed to be the original list. Even if she re-wrote the list, the handwriting wouldn't have changed THAT much. It is a different person's handwriting and not just a difference between sanity and madness.

Continuity mistake: As Earl McGraw tells his Son Number One the massacre at Two Pines house of worship must have been "the work of a salty dog," he gingerly moves in for a closer look at the carnage. Even though the side shot maintains a close view on the upper half of the body, the posture of his movements indicates that he starts stepping forward with his right leg. Yet in the immediate next shot from behind, it is with his left leg that he makes his advance.
Factual error: In the beginning of the anime sequence we see O-Ren's father from behind, along with his Army rank on his left shoulder. The rank in the movie has two chevrons on top (the upside down "V"s), three "rockers" on the bottom (the bowl shapes) and a star in the middle. The real Army rank of Sergeant Major has three chevrons on top - no rank except corporal has only two chevrons, and corporals have no rockers or other insignia.
Factual error: Near the end of the anime sequence when O-Ren murders the crime boss, there's a shot of the wall/ceiling behind her as she pulls the sword out of his stomach and you see the outline of O-Ren in the blood on the wall. In the next shot of O-Ren's face and body she only has minimal amounts of blood on her. Considering there was enough blood spraying out that you can see her outline on the wall behind her, shouldn't the front of her be covered in the blood as well?
Other mistake: In the anime scene, after the two men empty their magazines onto the back of Matsumoto, from under the bed, O-Ren shoots the leg of the guy wearing brown, then blasts his head. Then she fires a third shot that hits a brown leg, but the guy wearing blue falls instead.
