Continuity mistake: Archangel's alumni status (or lack thereof) with the X-Men varies throughout the series. Later episodes showed him to be an original member of the team just like in the comics, yet when he first appeared in Season 1, none of the other original members in the show (Cyclops, Jean Grey and Professor X) seem to know who he is. The time traveling mutant Shard also states in Season 4 that he is destined to eventually join the X-Men.

Red Dawn - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The magnet Jubilee uses to attach her note to the fridge is green and then is red when Wolverine discovers it. The note is also higher up on the fridge when Wolverine sees it than it was when Jubilee originally placed it.

A Rogue's Tale - S2-E9

Plot hole: In episode 1-9 "The Cure", when Pyro and Avalanche are in the bar on Muir Island waiting for Mystique to arrive, Avalanche says "This friend of yours better show up soon or I'm going back to jail, just for something to do!" Rogue then comes in and Pyro suggests to Avalanche that Rogue could be Mystique, to which Avalanche responds "What do you mean it could be? Don't you know what she looks like?", leading Pyro to tell Avalanche that Mystique is a shape-shifter. This dialogue implies that Avalanche has no idea who Mystique is, which is further substantiated when Pyro and Avalanche kidnap Mystique later in the episode while she is in the guise of Dr. Adler, and Avalanche didn't recognize Mystique when she revealed her true form. However in this episode it is shown that Pyro and Avalanche were both previously members of Mystique's Brotherhood of Mutants, so Avalanche should already know who Mystique is without Pyro having to tell him. Rogue was also a member of that group yet neither Pyro nor Avalanche recognize her.

Deliberate mistake: There's at least two episodes (Season 1's "Captive Hearts" and Season 4's "Sanctuary, Part 1") in which a character shows video footage of the X-Men and various supporting characters in action, but the footage is merely clips from previous episodes.

A Rogue's Tale - S2-E9

Factual error: During a flashback, Rogue is shown absorbing Pyro's mutant power and then creating fire out of thin air. However, Pyro does not have the ability to create fire, he can only control it. That's why he wears a flamethrower on the back of each hand.

Obsession - S3-E10

Audio problem: When Professor X says "For centuries it was though to be a myth..." his mouth is completely closed for the words "For centuries it." (00:06:15)

The Unstoppable Juggernaut - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Gambit is the central character in the previous episode "Slave Island", and is on the Blackbird with the rest of the team when they arrive at the destroyed X-Mansion. However, the very next episode begins where "Slave Island" left off, and Gambit is conspicuously missing from the episode.

Reunion: Part 2 - S2-E13

Other mistake: When Gambit is consoling Rogue just before she is taken to be tortured, he tells her that he loves her, and states that he has never said that to anyone before. But as we learned earlier in the season, Gambit was engaged in his youth to Bella Donna. Surely he told her he loved her at some point. Rogue is aware of this aspect of Gambit's past, so he would have nothing to gain by lying to her about it.

Beauty and the Beast - S2-E10

Plot hole: After Beast and Dr. Bohlson leave Carly's room, they briefly chat in the hallway just outside the door for less than 15 seconds in real time, and then discover that in that brief time frame, the Friends of Humanity abducted Carly from her second-story room via the window, managed to incapacitate the nurse, security guard and Carly's father, toss around furniture and spray paint "For Humanity" on one of the walls, all without any of the victims making a sound or the Friends of Humanity making a sound themselves. The Friends of Humanity aren't ninjas, rather they are shown to be somewhat bumbling, so there's no way they could have done all that as quickly and quietly as shown. (00:12:30)

Audio problem: Cable, Erik the Red and Captain America all have the exact same voice.

X-Ternally Yours - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In Gambit's flashback it is shown that the chosen one from the Guild of Thieves is banished to a "darkness never-ending" for breaking the covenant of the tithe. However, the same character can be seen later in the episode fighting alongside his fellow guild members.

Night of the Sentinels: Part 1 - S1-E1

Other mistake: In the scene where Professor X uses his psychic powers to deduce that Jubilee is trying to escape the mansion, there is a semi-dissolve edit that simultaneously shows a close-up of Professor X with his left hand on his forehead and a counterpart image of Jubilee hiding around the corner. If you look closely at Professor X in the counterpart image of Jubilee, his left arm and hand are shown to be on his hover-chair's armrest and not his forehead.

The Phoenix Saga (1): Sacrifice - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: After the X-Men rescue Dr. Corbeau and retreat back to the shuttle, they come upon a room with crew members passed out on the floor. Keep an eye on Wolverine in the background on the right side of the screen and you will see him literally walk through a door panel.
