Slave Island - S1-E7

Plot hole: After Storm's attempt to escape the Genoshan prison is thwarted, she ends up in the ocean right at the shoreline of the beach, where she is captured by a Sentinel. Aside from the fact that it makes no sense for a Sentinel to be hiding in the ocean in the event that a mutant tries to escape the prison, there is absolutely no way that a two-story tall robot could hide in the ocean right by the beach, as the water would be way too shallow. You can even see that the water level only goes up to the Sentinel's ankle area when it is standing upright in the ocean. (00:03:15)

The Dark Phoenix (2): The Inner Circle - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: Rogue rips off Donald Pierce's cybernetic left arm, but when he is first shown running away, his right arm is the one that is missing. When he catches up with Sebastian Shaw in the secret passageway, his left arm is back to being the one missing. (00:18:30)

Out of the Past (1) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Wolverine first enters the sewers by ripping away a fence in the subway. When Jubilee and Gambit follow him, the fence is still intact. When they get closer it is torn again. Odd, really, because on the whole this show has few continuity errors, like self-mending clothes in other cartoons.

Come the Apocalypse - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Archangel is lamenting his actions, the communicator devices from Storm's uniform are missing. (00:20:15)

Come the Apocalypse - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Storm is first watching the World Peace Conference on TV, she is sitting on a couch in a rec room. Moments later, she is watching in a hallway while standing. (00:07:45 - 00:09:00)

Come the Apocalypse - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Storm is watching TV with her arms folded, her left hand shows her index and middle fingers touching. When the shot changes, it is her middle and ring fingers that are touching. (00:08:40)

The Cure - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Rogue puts the dome in place, if you look closely you will see that the dome is resting on thin air (note that you can see the sky through the platform she sets it on, and when she sets it down, the underside of the dome is visible). (00:06:15)

Slave Island - S1-E7

Factual error: When Professor X is calling Moira McTaggart in Scotland, the phone number he uses is shown to have only dialed the exit code of 011, followed by a fictional seven-digit number with a 555 prefix. Since he is calling from the United States, he would have to dial the country code (44) and area code for the right part of Scotland. Plus UK numbers at that time had at least 9 numbers. (00:08:20)

Family Ties - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Quicksilver is fidgeting inside his containment shell, the animators neglected to properly sync his body movement. You can see that his shoulders are not "connected" to his arms, as if his head and shoulders were separated from the rest of his body. (00:16:00)

Secrets, Not Long Buried - S4-E15

Secrets, Not Long Buried - S4-E15

Revealing mistake: Instead of staying in place, the energy surging around Watchdog's head moves down the screen as the camera pans down. (00:02:35)

Love in Vain - S4-E14

Other mistake: The tail that Rogue grows appears out of thin air as if it were magic. Given that she's going through an organic transformation, the tail should have formed gradually out of her coccyx. (00:15:55)

Love in Vain - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: When Rogue's phone is ringing you can see that the phone is halfway absorbed into her mirror. (00:04:15)

Have Yourself a Morlock Little Christmas - S4-E12

Other mistake: Rogue states that this is Jubilee's first Christmas as an X-Man. However, Jubilee was already a member of the X-Men when Senator Kelly declared his candidacy for President in season 1, and the season 2 premiere episode showed him being sworn-in as President. Election Day is in November and the President is sworn-in in January, so Jubilee should have already had at least one Christmas as a member of the X-Men. (00:02:00)
