Continuity mistake: When Harry and Cedric are transported to the cemetery, the Triwizard cup lands on the grassy slope, well beyond the Riddle monument, with its luminescent top facing away from the cauldron area. During Priori Incantatem, three shots after Voldemort exclaims, "He's mine!" the cup lies on the corner of the Riddle monument's stone base and it faces the opposite way. The cup is back up on the grassy area in the following shots.

Continuity mistake: After Wormtail performs the Avada Kedavra curse and then raises the "bone of the father," he places Voldemort's wand inside the left side of his coat, before he slices off his right hand.

Continuity mistake: In the cemetery, just after Voldemort shouts, "He's mine!" when he faces off with Harry during Priori Incantatem, in this specific overhead wide shot, which is directly over Cedric's body and the Triwizard Cup in the foreground, the Cup is only a couple of feet away from Cedric's feet; whereas in a previous wide shot, when Voldemort says, "Here you stand before me as though it were only yesterday..." both the trophy and Cedric's body are seen at the top of the screen (with the Riddle monument in between), and the Triwizard Cup is quite a distance away, at least 4-5 feet, from Cedric's body.

In the next shot, when Dumbledore quickly runs up onto the platform to introduce Durmstrang, there is a white mark on the wood which he promptly stands on. This mark is not on the platform in either the previous or following shots.

The first time Ron is sitting up and his head turns as Filch runs past. As Filch continues to run, he passes Ron again, who this time has been lying his head on his arms on the table, and sits up as Filch runs past. The people near Ron also change and keep changing.

Continuity mistake: After the Yule Ball, when Neville walks into the dormitory, his shoes hang round his neck by their laces. While he says, "You alright Harry?" in Neville's first close-up his black collar lies flat, the shoes' laces hang round his white shirt and the heels touch. In the second shot his black collar is flipped up around his neck, the shoes' laces hang round the black collar and heels are about four inches apart. Then, in the third shot it reverts back, as in the first shot.

At the cemetery, when Harry says, "Cedric, we have to get back to the cup. Now! "the tear is not on the seam, and it's smooth with blackened edges. Back in the maze, when Amos approaches his son's body, the tear differs yet again. The dirt on Cedric's shirt changes as well.

Continuity mistake: Whilst Harry is in the bathtub in the Prefects' bathroom, the foamy bubbles on his face and body noticeably differ between consecutive shots, or disappear then reappear depending on camera angle, particularly when Myrtle is being "attentive" to him.

Revealing mistake: On the train to school, when HRH are in their cabin, among the different angles that are presented during this scene are the shots in which the camera either faces the large cabin window or the aisle window, directly opposite it. It is not what is seen that is the problem, it is what we don't see. When the camera faces the large cabin window we should see the scenic reflection of the window opposite it, as the train speeds along (and vice versa the aisle window), but we don't. What we do see reflected is the light colored wall beneath the blacked out window. The camera filming the shots from this angle is positioned at that window and in order not to see the outline of the camera/crew, the window was covered.

Continuity mistake: In the DADA class, whenever there is a shot facing the class room, we can see that Ron and Harry are in the middle of the class room and Parvati and Padma are on the viewer's right side of the room (screen).

Just before the shot cuts, Ginny is just about to move behind a twin, and more to the point, three members of the Irish zoom by on their brooms between Ron and Cedric. In the next shot (from behind), as the Irish are still zooming by, now their positions are Fred/George, Ron and Ginny, with the Irish zooming by between Ron and Ginny. Between shots, Ginny has moved past three people and the zooming Irish on their brooms.

Mortug

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which the Tri Wizard cup is brought into the Great Hall and then Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, pay attention to Hagrid. We first see him move behind Snape and Moody who are in front of the window and standing directly behind them. Then he is further over to the right of the screen in front of the wall, and then back to his original position.

Continuity mistake: When Harry returns from the cemetery, there's a shot of him lying over Cedric's body. When Dumbledore reaches out to put his hands on Harry's face, Harry's left shoulder is higher while he rests his weight on his right arm. The scene cuts to a rear view, and his right shoulder is now higher. When it cuts back to a front view, his left shoulder is once again in the higher position.

Revealing mistake: During the Yule Ball there is a shot of Professor Moody sitting on a bench tapping time with the music. One can easily see a green object beneath the bench. It is apparent that a hole was cut in the cushion with his real leg hanging below the bench covered with a green leg and foot sleeve. The large green object is his foot with a red dot on his toe. In post production the actor's real leg and foot is to be removed digitally via green screen-like technology and replaced with a digitized artificial one. The red dots are to help coordinate the movements and position of the artificial leg with the actor's real one. This shot obviously got missed by the postproduction team. If you look closely you can also just make out his knee peeking below the fringe of the bench.

Other mistake: At the very end, the Durmstrang ship is leaving, it's away from the 'bank', firing its cannon. And then we see the Beauxbatons girls leaving Hogwarts... Followed by Durmstrang students whose boat has already left.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hermione makes Harry stand up after his name has been retrieved from the Goblet of Fire, Ron continues to look straight ahead and has an emotionless expression for that shot. In the next shot when Harry is walking to Dumbledore, Ron's head is suddenly slightly down and moving up towards Harry, and a glare has appeared on his face.

Visible crew/equipment: After Fred and George drink the aging potion and jump within the "age line", right before they say, "Ready?" and drop their names into the goblet, at the start of this shot the actor's T-mark is briefly visible on the floor, just before one of the twins promptly steps to that area. A bit of a second T-mark is briefly seen as well, to its right, also where the other twin soon stands.
