Continuity mistake: When Bill is cutting the crusts off a sandwich towards the end, he cuts two off, goes to remove the third, then the angle changes and he's now cutting it in half. After that we hear him sweep the crusts off the board and see him hand the sandwich to BB, then a shot or two later crusts are back on the board and he cleans them off again to make another sandwich.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where The Bride is buried alive, she is shown trying to punch her way out of the coffin. Her knuckles and the top of the coffin are bloody. In the very next scene where she escapes, she goes to a diner for a glass of water and her knuckles show no evidence of punching their way out of the coffin.

Continuity mistake: After the bride has been crying in the bathroom near the end of the film, while BB is watching cartoons, the brides hair is much longer when she cuddles BB on the bed. It was shorter, shoulder length the evening before when she killed Bill and its the same again when she drives away happy with BB.
Continuity mistake: When Budd mixes an icy drink in his blender, he pours some into a couple of jars and then takes them over to Elle. When the jars are on the counter, they are no more than a third full, but when he takes them across the room, they have a lot more drink in than before
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the diner owner sees Beatrix walking towards the diner after getting out of the graveyard, you can see a CLOSED sign in the window and is pushed to the left corner of the window frame. When Beatrix is walking in you can see the same sign in the left window but is right up against the right of the window frame. You can actually see by the green pipe outside the diner that they have changed the sign's location. In the first shot the green pipe is outside the window. In the following shot where you can see the sign in the left window, the green pipe is outside the right window.
Continuity mistake: When Budd is in his boss's office being fired, after the boss scribbles out his name on the diary, he puts the pen onto the table in front of him. In the next shot the pen has suddenly disappeared but the pen lid is still there. Also, the lines of cocaine on the mirror on the table change throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: When Beatrix and B.B. are in the bed together the pillow under Beatrix's head changes position between shots. First her head is in the middle of the flowers then the flowers are totally visible. This changes a few more times without Beatrix actually moving her head.
Continuity mistake: When Budd is mixing drinks for himself and Elle in his trailer he pours them into two jars on his counter. When he pours the drink into the second one you can see him miss at first and spill the icey slush on the counter, but in the next shot (taken from behind him) as he picks up the drinks, the counter is clean.
Factual error: In the deleted scene where Bill kills the black guy and his henchmen, Bill slits the throat of the black man, and then sheathes the sword immediately. This would cause the blood to clot the inside of the scabbard, making it sticky and difficult to draw the sword. And if left long enough, it would rust the blade. The scabbard will have to be taken apart to be cleaned properly, which would be a lot of meaningless extra work, instead of simply taking 5 seconds to wipe the blade. A swordsman of Bill's caliber would never have mistreated his weapon like that. It is like seeing a soldier deliberately burying his rifle in mud to give himself a nice, long job of cleaning afterwards.
Continuity mistake: While waiting for the truth serum to kick in, Bill talks at Bride from a bar stool. When he stands up and moves to the couch, the white handled pistol in his belt is holstered wrong (handle facing out). Next shot (after a cut to bride) the pistol is holstered correctly.
Continuity mistake: When Elle and Beatrix are fighting in Budd's trailer, Bea throws the contents of Bud's jar spitoon on Elle's face and she says, "Gross." It's all over her face yet later in the fight, just BEFORE her head goes in the toilet, Elle's face is all clean and she has fresh lipstick.
Continuity mistake: When Elle is talking to Bill after killing Budd, she is packing the money away in the suitcase. When she tells Bill "She put a black mamba in his camper", all the money on the floor to her right is gone and the only money left to pack is on the small table to her right. The next shot she is taking money from the floor to the left (her right) of the suitcase, and there is a considerable amount of money still on the floor.
Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the scene where The Bride is fighting Elle in Budd's trailer, Elle swats her back towards the back of the room with the sword. The Bride then takes one of the TV antennas as a weapon; notice the green bottle of beer on the TV. As she yanks out the antenna, she hits the beer bottle which falls. In mid-fall, however, the shot changes and the bottle is back on the top of the TV again.
Continuity mistake: When Elle and Beatrix have their big showdown in Budd's trailer, Elle kicks Beatrix into some sort of room and turns around to get Beatrix's sword. She picks it up and throws the case of the sword behind her and it hits the hanging light, putting the light out. However, when you see a frontal of Elle holding the sword, the light's back on and it's motionless.

Continuity mistake: After Budd shoots the bride with rock salt he turns her over to inject with a drug. When he aims the needle to inject her it is from her left side and aimed at her left buttock. When they show a closeup of the injection Budd's arm is coming from the direction of her feet and injecting her in the right buttock.
Continuity mistake: About 10-15 minutes from the end, Bill and The Bride are talking in a room with a round couch with pillows on it. The Bride goes to sit down on the couch and directly behind her there is a striped pillow. As she sits, you can see that when she leans back, she will lean onto the pillow. However, the shot changes and as she completes leaning back, the pillow is no longer behind her, but to the side so that she leans against the back of the sofa.
Continuity mistake: A deleted scene in the Kill Bill 2 menu reveals a showdown between Bill and a black man with four henchmen. First henchman goes down then the remaining three attack. Bill slashes at them and they go down. As Bill approaches the black man, the positions of the three recently slaughtered henchmen changes everytime they are in shot.
Continuity mistake: When Budd is done making margaritas, the margarita mix bottle has the full label facing Elle. After he walks around the counter to give her a margarita, the bottle has spun halfway around and now the full label is facing where Budd was and the half label on the back is facing Elle.
Continuity mistake: When Beatrix is putting Elle's head into the toilet bowl in the fight you can see Elle is holding the toilet basin near the left edge with her left hand very tightly (you can tell its hers by the black sleeve). In the next shot she is bringing her hand up from below the basin around the middle of the left side and grabbing Beatrix's arm. Even if she dropped her hand there was not enough time during the shots for her to drop her hand from the basin and bring it back up.
Continuity mistake: When Beatrix squishes Elle's eyeball with her foot she is in the threshold of the door. The next shot she is halfway down the hall and picking up the Hanzo sword. We do hear Elle in the background and her screaming is continuous. Beatrix could have never gotten from the threshold of the door to halfway down the hall that quickly.
Continuity mistake: When Uma Thurman is at the trailer and is shot by Budd, then injected with a drug, there is a close up of her face and hands as she is injected. she clutches some sand in her hands which are under her head and her head drops onto her hand. However in the next shot when Budd is calling Elle on his mobile, if you look at Uma in the background her hands and arms are either side of her head and quite widely spread apart.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bud is getting lectured by his boss (at the MY-OH-MY CLUB) and he turns and marks out Bud's name on the working schedule, from one shot to the next shot the pen marks on the calendar change - sometimes neat lines (the ones we see him do), other shots they're messy scribbles.
Continuity mistake: After Beatrix plucks out Elle's other eye, Elle begins to kick and flail in the bathroom. A shot of the toilet has magazines and bottles neatly on top of it. The next shot the bottles are tipped over and the magazines are on the toilet seat. Elle never got close enough to the toilet to knock these items over. A few shots later and the magazines that were on the toilet seat are no longer there.
Continuity mistake: During the fight in Budd's trailer, the Bride tries to drown Elle in the toilet. As she's falling to the right, you can see that the magazines (that were previously on top of the tank) have somehow moved to the seat. An instant later, they're gone.

Continuity mistake: After Budd is done pouring the two drinks and the little speech to Elle about comparing Hanzo swords, he closes the door of the overhead cabinet with the blender in his right hand, then he puts the blender down, practically throwing it to the counter next to the Margarita Mix bottle. When he walks over to hand Elle the drink, the shot from behind the counter shows the blender is not where it's supposed to be, only the bottle.
Continuity mistake: When The Bride is in the coffin, various aspects of it keep changing. When the lid's being nailed on, one shot shows the wood a bit warped to the left of her head (where a nail's too close to the surface) but in other shots it's fine. The grain also changes in places, most noticeably when she's punching her way out - in different shots there's a knot to the left on the blood stain, above it, or right under it.

Continuity mistake: In the Face-to-Face chapter, Beatrix walks into the apartment wearing a black leather jacket and a blue dress. Later, after recalling the time when she found out she was pregnant, they show her standing in the doorway to the backyard wearing an orange shawl which didn't appear prior to that shot.
