Continuity mistake: At the Crematoria mountain, Kira gets stuck in a small hole after the sunrise. She tries to climb again, but the rocks are so hot, she can't even touch them. She crouches and talks to Riddick for a while. Then, while standing up again, she touches the rock wall, but doesn't appear to experience any discomfort from the supposedly baking hot surface. (01:16:05)
Continuity mistake: The character Imam has a large animal tooth on a necklace. Later than 5 minutes and less than 25 minutes into the movie Riddick and Imam are having an argument where in different shots of the same scene two different necklaces switch back and forth. The first, which is a significant plot point later on, is longer and plainer then the embellished, more curved second one.
Continuity mistake: When Riddick meets up with Jack/Kyra in Crematoria, she comes up behind Riddick and asks him if she should go for his sweet spot, Riddick grabs her wrist with his left hand and swings her into the bars. When she hits the bars he is holding her wrist with his right arm. Then a few seconds later you see his left arm again holding her wrist. With Riddick's left arm holding Kyra's wrist, his forearm is forcing her head to the side. This is made more obvious as Riddick then takes his right hand, grabs the bars and lifts Jack/Kyra up so she is now straddling his right arm. (00:51:05)
Visible crew/equipment: When Riddick's team reaches the crematoria hangar with the Necros already there, there are two "lensers". As the camera pans to the first lenser full frontal it turns its head, and in the glass of its face plate you see the banks of studio lighting and camera crew. But when the scene cuts to what it is looking at, you see rocks. The effect also occurs when the second "lenser" turns its head , but the visible equipment is less. (01:24:45)
Continuity mistake: While Riddick is being scanned by the Quasi-Deads, his anger causes the glass jars to break and the liquid to spill. At least seven distinct breaking sounds are heard. But during his escape, the glass jars are intact and there is no black liquid on the ground. (00:42:45 - 00:43:20)
Continuity mistake: When Riddick is with the Imam and remembers a previous event of saving young Jack from an alien, it shows a clip from the previous film, Pitch Black, in which we see him yell Jack's name before attacking the creature. He never did that in the film Pitch Black. It was added audio to show the viewers that he cared about her.
