Factual error: As a trash compactor Wall-E does not function logically. When he fills his chest compartment with garbage and runs his internal compactor, the cube that exits his body is the same volume as the trash he puts in, despite that trash having been compacted. He does not add extra trash to fill the empty space after running the compactor - there are three scenes that show him filling up only once with loose garbage and then ejecting a densely compacted cube. (00:02:30)
Continuity mistake: After the escape pod scene (but before the 'dance'), Wall-E uses a fire extinguisher to fly back and forth. Between every camera shot except one, all the extinguisher particles disappear instantly. (00:56:50)
Continuity mistake: When Eve fires a shot at the tanker they show an overhead view of the scene - there are three other tankers sitting on the starboard side of the exploded tanker. When the tankers fall like dominoes there are now four of them next to the exploded tanker.
Continuity mistake: The sky over Wall-E's city is totally covered, from horizon to horizon, with thick brown clouds. When the Earth is seen from space at the beginning of the film, there is no such cloud cover anywhere on the planet. It looks more like the old Universal Studios logo than the actual Earth. The clouds appear out of nowhere as the camera zooms down. (00:01:30)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eve meets the cockroach and Wall-E, after blowing up the tires Eve approaches Wall-E. We get a shot from Wall-E looking down Eve's gun, and her eyes are squinted and challenging. The shot changes to the side so the cockroach can jump to Wall-E, and her eyes are softer and more neutral- then the shot changes back to looking down the gun and they're challenging again. (00:18:30)
Continuity mistake: When EVE is heading to the holo-detector with Wall-E and MO, Auto tilts the ship/alters the gravity field so that everyone on board (basically the entire human race) slides across the lido deck and piles up on the starboard bulkhead. When Captain McCrea takes control and rights the ship everyone is still piled against the bulkhead, with just a few people falling off the pile and some attempting to walk for the first time. Five seconds later when tossing the plant to EVE and going into hyper jump everyone on the ship is now equally distributed across the entire lido deck area. (01:19:10)
Other mistake: When Eve repairs Wall-E, she uses a jack to push him back into shape, putting it in one side, and separating it. Then she slides it to the other side. The jack collapses instantly as she slides it; if jacks collapsed that easily they wouldn't be very useful. The sort of jack she uses doesn't have a release mechanism either. (01:22:30)
Character mistake: Captain McCrea tells the passengers that it's the 700th anniversary of the Axiom's first flight. The Axiom has been in flight for 255,642 days. Actually, 700 years is 255,675 days. That figure includes the additional day in 175 leap years.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene on the lido deck when Auto alters the ship's gravity the people mover falls off it's tracks and barrels towards the passengers, smashing a huge path through the hover chairs. When normal gravity is restored and they hyperjump to earth most of the chairs are back in place. (01:20:40)
