Army of Darkness

Continuity mistake: When Ash is in the pit and the spiked walls start moving inwards, how far apart the walls are keeps changing but not in a logical order until he crawls out of the pit.

Sandallia

Continuity mistake: For the mini-Ash's only one is Bruce, all the others have fake chins on to make them looks like Bruce. (00:32:15)

Continuity mistake: In ED2 and Army they obviously had no real way to make it look like Ash was missing a hand so they obviously had him put his hand in a fist and put a bandage over it, long wrist, eh? (00:19:30)

Continuity mistake: In one of the scenes where Ash is fixing his new hand, specifically the scene where he is tightening the straps on his arm, you can see a big chunk of his hand past the wrist. (00:22:45)

Continuity mistake: After Evil Ash is killed and Sheila is knocked to the ground, there is a close-up of her beautifully made-up face and coifed hair. Then Ash helps her up and she is grimy and disheveled and sweaty again. (01:24:20)

Revealing mistake: When Ash is in the pit and the Wise One tosses him his chainsaw, as the chainsaw is tumbling through the air the ripcord on it is always hanging down. Shouldn't it be flying all over the place? (00:13:55)

Other mistake: When Ash is splitting into his two halves, he backs into a huge tree and it moves. The tree moves again a few minutes later when bad Ash is shot and flies into it. (00:37:45 - 00:39:00)

Continuity mistake: Ash's hairstyle varies throughout the film. The scene where he get the Necronomicon is the most obvious because in that scene he has very bushy hair.

Deliberate mistake: During the final battle, when Ash is driving around in his car with the giant fan mounted to the front mowing down enemies, some of the evil skeletons he runs into aren't moving at all for several seconds before being hit. This reveals that the were just props designed and set-up to be run over for the effect. Additionally, the first two sets of skeletons he chops up in the fan are the exact same skeletons shot from different angles. (You can tell from the distinct way the one skeleton's arm comes off and ends up on the car's front).

TedStixon

Other mistake: You can see that Ash is without his shotgun after being captured by the knights, even when he's thrown into the pit. However, it appears out of nowhere when he is prompted to shoot Arthur's sword. The only weapon that we saw returned to him was the chainsaw when the wise man tossed it down to him.

Factual error: After coming out of the pit, Ash gets three shots out of a double barrel shotgun. There was a sound of cocking when the shotgun has to be cracked open to re-load.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When Duke Henry's soldier is thrown into the pit, the pair of soldiers holding him stop just short of actually throwing him off the ramp and he very obviously jumps into the pit. (00:09:55)

Cubs Fan

Factual error: When all is back to normal and Ash is back at his job at S-Mart, a witch shows up and starts trashing the place. Ash is knocked behind the sporting goods counter, where there is (of course) a cabinet containing guns. Ash then jumps up and blows the witch away, firing 37 times. He's using a .38 caliber Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with a "Trapper" loop lever. It only holds 9 rounds.

Revealing mistake: When Ash is forced to swallow one of the mini-Ashes, it's obvious that the two mini-Ashes pinching his nose aren't actually touching him and have been green-screened in. (00:31:05)

Cubs Fan

Other mistake: Just after his 'If any of you primates even touches me' speech, Ash yells and then turns to shoot the pit monster. Only problem is, while he's yelling, Ash is turning to his right. But in the next shot, he's turned to his left. (00:18:45)

Continuity mistake: Ash is chased by an evil entity to an abandoned windmill and only prevents it from getting him by barricading the door shut, yet when he smashes the mirror you can see the door behind him and it's wide open. (00:30:10 - 00:31:45)

Continuity mistake: When Lord Arthur shoots the crossbow at the fleeing prisoner near the beginning, the camera angle changes to that of the arrow. For a moment, before the camera changes angles again, the arrow is going slower than the guy running. (00:10:30)

Continuity mistake: Where did Ash's chainsaw go? He uses it once to get out of the pit, once to dismember bad Ash, and then it disappears. Why didn't he use it during the final fight, when a chainsaw would have been much more effective than a sword, even while not running. (00:39:50)

Duke Henry: I am Henry the Red, Duke of Shale, Lord of the Northlands and leader of its people.
Ash: Well hellooo Mister Fancypants. I've got news for you pal, you ain't leading but two things right now: Jack and shit... And Jack just left town.
