Revealing mistake: In the scene in the alley behind the museum where Hellboy first encounters Rasputin, Sammael has its tongue wrapped around Hellboy's arm. When Myers enters and shoots at Sammael, look closely at Myers' hands. Not only does the gun fire without him pulling the trigger, but the gun does not even recoil.

Revealing mistake: When Professor Broom's coffin is being carried, it is raining, and the camera is overhead, no rain falls in the centre of the picture, as the camera is in the way. (01:20:00)

Revealing mistake: When Hellboy is running across the path that's being destroyed by the massive pendulum like hammer, at one point he starts to run and you can see he's floating above the rocks as they fall, most likely due to the harness keeping him from falling.

Revealing mistake: When Hellboy is filing down his horns with the small razor/sander contraption, you can tell the small sparks coming off are not coming from the contact of his horns and the sander, but rather are coming right out of the sander, revealing it is a prop. (00:48:20)

Revealing mistake: During the scene in which Rasputin is resurrected, at one point, Ilsa wipes some snow off a wall then checks her book to see if she can match a symbol. When she opens the book, some snow lands inside of it... and it is incredibly obvious that the snow is fake. It looks like pieces of torn up paper.


Revealing mistake: When Kroenen cuts open the statue to get the Sammael container, the slash on the statue is actually at a different angle than he actually slashed it. Probably the actor missing the correct angle, which is admittedly difficult.

Continuity mistake: When Hellboy is walking at one point, holding his gun up in his left, gloved hand (just after one of the agents has said "This place is like swiss cheese"), watch the frame. It switches suddenly so his right hand (the stone one) is his left, and he's holding the gun in his "right." (00:59:40)

Trivia: The BPRD complex was (according to Del Toro) was originally FDR's secret emergency bunker. The library where Professor Broom dies was the president's office and Hellboy's room (with the big vault door) was his fallout shelter, just in case Germany perfected the A-bomb first.
