Continuity mistake: At the front door of Sao Feng's, after Elizabeth removes her hat, it cuts to the removal of her decorative vest (totally skipping her jacket), revealing her weapons' holster harness underneath, and she then tosses her vest at Sao Feng's man. Problem is the man doesn't catch her vest, he actually catches her empty weapons' holster harness. But, in the next few shots she's still wearing that holster harness, as she removes her lovely weapons.

Continuity mistake: When Beckett boards the Dutchman and speaks to Jones, he has very noticeable dark facial stubble, but bizarrely, in his next close-up he is actually clean shaven, his wig curl has shrunk and his eyebrow hair is neater.

Continuity mistake: The cord necklace Will wears, which has several things dangling from it - particularly a distinctive white shell, flips round the opposite way between shots within a scene, several times during the film. For example, before and after the maelstrom, including the ceremony Barbossa performs.

Continuity mistake: The worn areas of Jack's leather hat drastically changes throughout the film. Additionally, the hat has a threaded 'X' on both its right and left side. In numerous close-ups extra thread holes are visible in different areas near each of these Xs; such as in the Locker, when Jack lies on the ground as the Pearl passes by and later, on the little island, before Jack switches places with Will. In other shots those extra holes are gone, such as when Jack sets sail for the Fountain of Youth. The actual sizes of the Xs also change.

Continuity mistake: When Barbossa and Elizabeth go to meet Sao Feng, she is asked to get rid of all her weapons. When she places the homemade grenade on the table, it gets placed on the edge of a red cloth where you can see the table at the end of the cloth, yet when she places her final weapon, the red cloth is now almost completely covering the table.

Continuity mistake: When Barbossa is talking to Calypso on the Black Pearl, right after he says, "Masters Pintel and Ragetti, take this fishwife to the brig," there is a shot of Pintel and Ragetti leading her down the deck's steps. The Black Pearl is pitching strongly up and down. In the next shot, where Barbossa looks at and flexes his hand, the ship is barely pitching at all.

Continuity mistake: Elizabeth has a beauty mark above the corner of her right eyebrow which actually disappears in some of her close-ups. For instance, when she is with Norrington and asks, "Know what? Which side you chose?" and later, when he kisses her. Later, in the scene with her son, the beauty mark is gone in one close-up and then just reappears in the next one, as she glances at her son.

Continuity mistake: When Sao Feng's ship fires on Beckett's ship (when Beckett's captain asks if Sparrow has a plan or just makes it up as he goes along). Endeavour, Beckett's ship, loses her mainmast due to battle damage. In reality, as no ship carried a spare mainmast, Endeavour would have had to limp slowly back to port, refit a new mast and rigging, and then return to battle. This would most likely take weeks. Endeavour is spotlessly repaired a few scenes later.

Continuity mistake: Just before Pintel and Ragetti are about to fire Jack, the monkey, out of a cannon, the monkey and barrel point out of a partially destroyed gun port, with its hinged port lid missing. Once Ragetti lights it, in the close-up just as Jack blazes out, the frame of the gun port is perfectly intact, as is its hinged port lid above it.

Yet when Elizabeth and the three henchmen turn to look at Barbossa, the guy's hat is now cocked upwards, so the camera can see a lot more of his face.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is in Davey Jones' locker, and he is messing around with the rock, there are a few close up shots of his face and there is a bump, probably a pimple, on the left hand side of his face, by his lower lip, and a few shots later it is gone. It disappears without enough time passing for it to have gone away of its own accord.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the crabs in Davy Jones' Locker are helping to move Jack's ship, the camera does a close-up of Jack's face, in which he has a very amusing expression. In the next shot, the camera has pulled back from him, and his face and angle are entirely different.

Continuity mistake: After Jack and crew are brought back to life, Elizabeth looks out to sea and says "it's a sunrise". Then there is a shot of Barbossa looking at the sunrise. In the next shot he quickly turns around and points his pistol at Jack. The lighting in these two shots changes significantly, where the first is warm, red, sunrise-type light, and the next shot looks as though it was filmed in the middle of the day.
