Continuity mistake: Atreyu climbs up a tree and talks to the Ancient One. There is a series of face-on shots of the boy alternating with ones from behind him. In the face shots, Atreyu's left hand is below shoulder height on a branch. In the shots from behind, his left hand is holding the branch well above head height.
Continuity mistake: When Atreyu first sets out on his quest, his horse Artax is grey with dark mane and tail. However, when they stop to rest and eat by the stream, Artax is white with white mane and tail. By the end of the film, when Bastian and Falkor flies over Fantasia,they spot Atreyu and Artax - low and behold - Artax's mane and tail are dark again.
Audio problem: When Nighthob and Teeny are talking to the Rockbiter near the beginning of the film, Teeny says to Nighthob "This could be serious", then turns to Rockbiter and calls out his name. Watch Teeny's mouth as he calls out "Rockbiter". You will see a very blatant editing mistake as Teeny is not actually saying 'Rockbiter", but is saying the next line that follows. (00:16:40)
Rockbiter: They look like big, good, strong hands. Don't they? I always thought that's what they were. My little friends. The little man with his racing snail, the Nighthob, even the stupid bat. I couldn't hold on to them. The nothing pulled them right out of my hands. I failed.
Atreyu: No you didn't fail. I'm the one who was chosen to stop the nothing. But I lost the Auryn, I can't find my luck dragon, so I won't be able to get past the boundaries of Fantasia.
Rockbiter: Listen, the nothing will be here any minute. I will just sit here and let it take me away too. They look like good, strong hands. Don't they?
