Star Wars: Clone Wars

Chapter 1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Anakin prepares for take-off, C-3PO and R2 can be seen standing right by his fighter. But as he takes off, they can suddenly be seen standing by Padmé - several floors above.

Chapter 3 - S1-E3

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.

Chapter 3 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Season 1 Episode 3: Chapter III. After the ARC Troopers have destroyed the Droid tank, the Captain waves the team on. In that shot, the red coloration of his helmet's chin is missing (it is white instead).

Chapter 2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Obi-Wan is telling Anakin that he is the Commander of the space fleet, in the overhead shot only Obi-Wan is walking near Anakin's fighter, yet in the next shot Clone Troopers are marching right past the fighter. (00:03:55)

Chapter 13 - S2-E3

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)

Chapter 6 - S1-E6

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.

Chapter 2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the LAAT gunship is shot down by the rocket, it crashes into the street with the upper side (with the cockpit canopies) skidding forward. But it comes to rest with its nose forward, and in these two shots it has made no visible spinning motions.

Chapter 2 - S1-E2

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)

Chapter 3 - S1-E3

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.

Chapter 8 - S1-E8

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.

Chapter 3 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: We see one Clone Trooper get hit by Sniper fire and fall in front of the ship, yet in the shot following his body is off to the side above the crashed ship, not in front.

Chapter 14 - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Jedi Roron Corobb is bellowing at the droids on the pavement, the amount of damage gets bigger and smaller between shots, as does the size of the slabs on the pavement.

Chapter 17 - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The ships' positions change constantly throughout the episode. This is easiest to spot when the troops are leaving their transport.

Chapter 9 - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Durge jets in for the second battle, the puncture and slash wound in his torso and the slash on his arm are gone. He may be able to regenerate his body, but there's nothing to indicate his armor can.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the ARC troopers are on Muunilinst, there is a red trooper, 2 blue troopers and several plain white ones. But on Hypori, there is still the red one, but the rest are blue.

Chapter 14 - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the Nelvaan cave, Anakin looks around a corner. In that scene, the scar over his right eye and the tattoo which should cover it are not there.

Chapter 8 - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: During the first duel with Durge and Obi-Wan, Durge's bike is totalled and Obi-Wan's gets hacked to pieces as Durge swings it at Obi. However, as soon as the fight is over, Obi-Wan picks up his bike, completely undamaged, and goes off on his merry way. None of the other trooper's bikes are ever seen anywhere near them.

Chapter 14 - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Palpatine and his rescuers are in the descending elevator, a wide shot shows the trooper with the rocket launcher standing at the far left of the shot, in front of the hammer-headed Jedi. The shot then tightens in and suddenly this trooper is behind Palpatine, who is behind that Jedi. (00:39:20)

Chapter 4 - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the giant beam gets fired by that lobster cannon, the positions of the ships on the surface change instantly between shots.

Chapter 1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Anakin prepares for take-off, C-3PO and R2 can be seen standing right by his fighter. But as he takes off, they can suddenly be seen standing by Padmé - several floors above.

Chapter 12 - S2-E2

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!

Chapter 15 - S2-E5

Trivia: In Revenge Of The Sith, General Grievous' first appearance was made notable by his rasping cough. In the Star Wars storyline, the crushing of his chest by Mace Windu in this episode was presented as the logical reason; but actually, George Lucas merely wanted to signify that Grievous is not a droid, but a cyborg.

Answer: Her date of birth is unrevealed. What little is known is that she was found as a child (precise age unknown) by a Jedi who crashlanded on her homeworld of Rattatak somewhere around 40BBY (precise year unknown). Realising her Force potential, he took her as his Padawan and trained her for some years, only to be cut down by a local warlord before he could finish, leaving her to seek vengeance on the warlords who had conspired against him, precipitating her fall to the Dark Side. It's difficult to determine her precise age from all this, but if we assume that she was ten when she was found, and that was in 40BBY, then Asajj would be 28 at the outbreak of the Clone Wars. So figure on anywhere in a range a few years either side of that.
