Anne - S3-E1

Revelations - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: In 'Revelations' when Buffy and Faith are fighting, the kick Faith aims at Buffy's face right after she says 'We can work this out' very noticeably misses, but Buffy still reacts as though it landed. (00:36:15)

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode Lover's Walk, when Spike is threatening Willow at the factory, in the long shots Willow's hair is up over her face, and in the close-ups it isn't. The pointed bit of the bottle is at the top or bottom in different shots too. (00:19:20)

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: While it is established that Angel doesn't age, it's obvious across both Buffy and Angel that David Boreanaz gets older. More unavoidable than deliberate, but still worth noting.

Checkpoint - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: In the series 5 episode 'Checkpoint' when Buffy has just accidently axed the dummy, watch her blindfold. It goes from being pushed up above her forehead on her hair, to being right down by her eyes. This changes between every shot. (00:27:55)

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When all the vampires are saying "for the dark", and one gets staked, there's a mark on his shirt where the stake's about to come through before it actually happens. Plus Buffy's hands are in the wrong place for her to have pushed that stake through, as well as there being no stake in her hand when the vampire gets dusted. Not only that, but the mark isn't even close to the vampire's heart to begin with. (00:34:50)

School Hard - S2-E3

Vampire: And when I kill her, it will be the greatest event since the crucifixion. And I should know, I was there.
Spike: You were there?! If every vampire who said he was actually at the crucifixion really was there, it would've been like Woodstock!

Touched - S7-E20

Question: How come Buffy can move so fast when she's fighting Kaleb?

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
