Continuity mistake: The red-marked leader of the ARC Troopers sure goes through a rapid succession of field promotions and degradations. In Chapter III, he is addressed by Obi-Wan as a Sergeant; when Obi-Wan arrives at the Banking Clan's HQ in Chapter IX, he calls him Commander; and when Anakin returns from his duel with Asajj Ventress in Chapter XX, he is suddenly a Captain.
Continuity mistake: After Padme drags Threepio away as the attack on the city begins, Mace Windu's fighter swoops across the screen from left to right, and it rolls onto its side to show us the top of the cockpit. We see his canopy is similar to the design found in the 'Revenge of the Sith' film, being comprised of three large panels of glass. Unlike the film version (which has a small porthole behind the pilot's head), there is no glass behind Windu. But when the shot cuts to show him inside, there are three windows behind him. Seconds later, another interior view shows the three 'windows' are now solid panels. (00:28:20)johnrosa
Continuity mistake: When Count Dooku and the disguised Asajj Ventress watch the fighters in the Rattatak arena, the lodge they sit in at first seems almost level with the arena floor. Later, when Dooku floats to the arena floor after Asajj has finished all enemies, the lodge is high above the ground.
Continuity mistake: As the ARC troopers' gunship breaks off from the rest of the ships and as it's flying through the city, its markings are blue. But as the ship is hit and crashing, its markings are the red. (It is definitely the same ship, as we see the ARC troopers emerge from it after the crash.). (00:05:55)
Continuity mistake: When the Sniper Droid zeroes in on an ARC Troopers head, we see them in a ring around the gunship, with 2 ARC Troopers on top of the wreckage, but in the shot after that we see them in a completely different position, with all the ARCs in front of the ship.Matt Lynch
Other mistake: In the Banking Clan's HQ, San Hill assesses the situation: "Those guns are destroying our forward positions. The Republic is breaking through!"; then the ground shakes when the giant cannon outside is blasted, and Hill flinches in surprise. But if you look closely, he flinches just before the explosion and the resulting tremor come in.
Continuity mistake: When Durge fires his in-built flamethrower at Obi-Wan, the Jedi Force-crushes the weapon. but in the scene where Obi-Wan's hand is closing into a fist, the flame stream stops just before that; and when the scene switches to Durge's arm, the flamethrower is still firing just before its muzzle is crumpled up.
Deliberate mistake: At the beginning of the chapter, as the scene switches to the surface fighting on Muunilinst, we see a score of droids blasted before the Republic Army's heavy artillery is brought in. But there are no remains on the droids to be seen after the smoke has cleared, whereas there should be something left.
Oro Dassyne: I wonder how many they'll send. We've got so much firepower in here, these walls are ray-shielded. They can't take this fort. It'll probably be, uh, fifty Jedi. They'll need at least that many. Huh, maybe a hundred Jedi! They'll never take this base with less. Ha, they'll need an army of Jedi!
Battle Droid: I have a visual.
Oro Dassyne: Jedi?
Battle Droid: I think so.
Oro Dassyne: How many? A thousand?
Battle Droid: No.
Oro Dassyne: Eighty?
Battle Droid: No, sir.
Oro Dassyne: What? Fifty?
Battle Droid: Less.
Oro Dassyne: Forty? Come on, how many?
Battle Droid: Two.
Oro Dassyne: What?! Give me those!
