Continuity mistake: In the scene where Parker is shown playing golf on the indoor golf course in RDA, the first time he hits the ball, there are two other balls lying on the course side by side. In the next shot, two are distant apart and in the shot after that, they are in their original position.
Continuity mistake: In a scene in the planning room (where the computer model of Pandora is being studied by Colonel Quaritch and Parker Selfridge), Jake is watching them move the model quickly to find something on it and they show his digital watch which says 2:19. Less than a minute later they show his watch again and it says 2:51.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Jake was just in his avatar for the first time, he and the Colonel are discussing things around a holographic 3D map. With each shot, Jake's arms change from being straight out holding the edge of the table, to clasped in front of him, with no time to move the position in between.
Continuity mistake: When Jake is walking up to the Tree of Souls to ask Eywa for help, he kneels and reaches for his braid as if it were hanging over his shoulder when it is lying down his back. The angle changes and it is now over his shoulder. When he stands up as Neytiri tells him that Eywa protects the balance of life, it's suddenly down his back again.
Continuity mistake: When Jake's avatar is running through the garden as he first enjoys having working legs again, he skids to a stop on the loose topsoil in the aisle of the garden. The next shot that shows him wriggling his toes in the soil reveals a pristine path of soil and no evidence of the disturbance his skidding to a stop caused.
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Jake and Grace are tied up by the natives, shortly after they are cut down, Jake pushes Grace over a log to avoid an explosion, the shot changes to something else, then returning to the log, and we see that he's pushing her again. then the shot continues.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jake wakes up from his link and Grace asks him, "Is the avatar safe?" and he replies, "Yeah Doc, and you are not gonna believe where I am," her hand is on top of his shoulder. But as the camera angle changes back and forth her hand switches to the side of his upper arm and back to the shoulder without time to have made the move.
Continuity mistake: (Extended Edition) In the scene we see Tsu'tey badly injured on the ground, he asks Jake to finish him off in the "Navi way". Tsu'tey reaches out for Jake's dagger and Jake assists him in taking the dagger out of the scabbard. In the next shot the dagger is back in Jake's scabbard and a moment later in the third shot the dagger is now out of the scabbard and in Jake's hand.
Continuity mistake: When Jake tames Toruk, he confronts the Na'vi and speaks to Tsutey. While Jake is speaking to Tsutey, Tsutey's braids are over his shoulder. After Jake says "You are Oloektan," all but a single braid are behind his shoulder. After this, when Tsutey looks at the Toruk in the distance, a braid or two fall over his shoulder, in the next cut no braids are over his shoulder.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Neytiri is showing Seze to Jake, Neytiri's ponytail changes positions between shots twice. She puts it over her left shoulder as Seze is landing, it's at her back in the next shot of her, then when she says "Ikran is not horse" it's over her shoulder again.
Continuity mistake: At approximately 15 mins and 15 seconds, Max is looking over the image and info on the activity for the Avatar drivers. When Jake first drives, he is wearing a black "dog tag" with a blue spot. When he walks over toward the viewing window with the portable screen at approximately 15 mins 30 seconds, the "dog tag" is orange with a spot of black.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Grace is talking about the Tree of Souls in the mobile lab, Trudy stands behind Jake with her right hand on her hip and left hand hanging down. After grace says "Outsiders are strictly forbidden," we are shown a close-up shot of Jake and hear Grace continue with "You lucky swine."In the background, we see that Trudy has suddenly turned 90 degrees clockwise and is apparently supporting herself with her left arm on what seems to be the same table Norm is sitting on.
Continuity mistake: When Jake is recording his first video log entry, he moves the recording camera around a little to get a better view of his face, and is looking directly at a screen to his right to see if he's centered his face correctly. In the very next shot, he is staring straight forward at the camera.
Continuity mistake: When Jake is trying to catch up with Neytiri, they get ambushed by Tsu'tey and his posse. Jake pulls out his dagger, but then throws it down to save his butt. He's surrounded. So he has his arms out where they can see it. While Neytiri is confronting Tsu'tey, Jake is in the background with his arms spread out, and his dagger back in the holder.
