Continuity mistake: In the scene where they're in the air close to the end of the movie, when Margo tries to jump to Gru's plane, Vector grabs her and points the squid launcher at Gru, then the moon hits Vector, knocking him and Margo off his ship. When Vector climbs back up to his ship, the moon's gone. It couldn't have rolled away because Vector's ship didn't move in that short time.

Continuity mistake: In the very first shot of inside the orphanage, the tape mark on the floor is at least 3 feet away from the desk. The three girls stand behind it and 2 shots later we can see they are standing about an inch away from the desk. Then when Miss Hattie stands up, the tape is now a foot away from the table.

Continuity mistake: After Gru tells the first minion "Minions assemble", that minion slides down a pole and relays the instructions to other minions. After he does this you can see a minion standing on the right of a blue tube and he jumps in, after the camera begins to pan to the left, that same minion instantly appears back at the entrance of the tube. Probably an error in the animation sequence which returned the minion to his starting position when his animation was finished.
