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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: Magneto straps Wolverine to the port side of a boat and then drops the boat on a warehouse. When Gambit is freeing Wolverine, Wolverine is suddenly on the starboard side of the boat. After Gambit frees Wolverine, they are both shown to be on the boat's port side.

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Sinister is mocking Jubilee, take a close look at his neckline as he moves his head. The animators moved his neckline as he moved his head, but his shoulders stay in place, so his head and neck look like they are floating above his shoulders.
Continuity mistake: When Cyclops blasts a hole in the floor beneath Sebastian Shaw and causes him to fall through it, Shaw lands on a catering table. Later when Beast jumps down the hole to attack Shaw, Shaw is emerging from underneath heavy rubble rather than a catering table, and he is inexplicably shirtless. The rubble also changes from being brown just before Beast jumps down the hole, and is then white after he lands. Additionally, the floor goes from being black-and-white checkered to a solid brown color.
00:15:55 - 00:17:05
Other mistake: When Apocalypse is holding Rogue upside-down, her belt remains in place despite the fact that her belt is wider than her waist and abdomen (it is not as wide as her hips which is why it remains in place when she is upright). Her belt should have fallen down to underneath her breasts.
Continuity mistake: Beast disarms a member of the Friends of Humanity whilst perched on a street lamp. When the angle changes to a wide shot, Beast is much higher on the lamp post and would have been too far out of reach to disarm the man in the first place.
Other mistake: When Wolverine, Gambit and Beast are battling members of the Friends of Humanity, Wolverine slices through the gun of one of their members. From the angle Wolverine is standing respective to the F.O.H. Member, he could not have possibly sliced through the gun without also slicing off the man's left hand.
Continuity mistake: The exploding playing card that Gambit uses to destroy a few Sentinels and draw the rest above ground is cleverly shown to be the ace of spades (also known as the death card in some folklore), but the card he is shown charging up before the Sentinels see it is the 2 of diamonds.
Continuity mistake: When Gyrich is in the car trying to get Trask on the phone, he is shown to be sitting in the backseat on the passenger side (note the windows immediately to his right and behind him). When his driver crashes the car into a tree, Gyrich is shown exiting the car from the front passenger seat.
Continuity mistake: When Wolverine is infiltrating the Friends of Humanity's headquarters, and later when he is talking to Graydon Creed in their auditorium, some shots show him wearing a gold wristband on his left wrist, and other times he is not wearing one.
00:06:20 - 00:14:30Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Storm is teasing Gambit for damaging the pool table, she is holding a television remote in her left hand, which is yellow (Storm doesn't wear gloves). A couple of shots later, she is holding the remote in her right hand (she had time to transfer the remote to her other hand, so no mistake there), which is colored correctly.
Continuity mistake: When Rogue and Gambit are playing pool and Rogue is getting ready to try and sink the 8-ball, the cue ball is shown to be close to the corner pocket and its rail. When the shot changes, both balls are suddenly further away from the pocket and the rail. It's an instantaneous change, so it can't be a matter of the cue ball rolling.
Continuity mistake: When Cyclops forces his way to the front of the crowd to confront Warren Worthington (Mystique in disguise), the Lady Gardener is standing just behind the mutant with the bowl-cut hairdo. When the shot changes, the two are suddenly standing next to each other.
Continuity mistake: Before the mutants ambush the guards, they are walking in a single-file line, with Sunfire in front, followed by Jubilee, Mystique, Caliban, an unnamed female mutant, and Aurora. A couple of shots later, either Aurora or her similarly-dressed twin brother Northstar is suddenly at the front of the line.
Continuity mistake: Gambit and Jubilee are shown to be grouping together what appears to be several pieces of malleable rebar. When the shot changes to Gambit reassuring Jubilee that Storm is alive, he is shown to be working with a single piece of rebar. When the shot changes again, they are back to working with a bunch of rebar.
Character mistake: When the civilians are fleeing the coffee shop, there are two spelling errors on the coffee shop's marquee. Firstly, the name of the coffee shop is Rip Van Winkle, but on the marquee, Winkle is spelled as "Winkile." To the right of that, Coffee House is spelled as "Coffe House."
Continuity mistake: When the X-Men regain their mutant powers, Jean Grey is suddenly wearing her uniform instead of the casual outfit she was wearing when she was abducted. In the next shot and for the remainder of the episode, she is back to wearing her casual outfit.
Continuity mistake: In the first establishing shot of the Assassins Guild's mansion, there is a stairway leading up to the front door. In the establishing shot of the mansion in the scene where Gambit is in Bella Donna's bedroom, the stairway is missing, and consequently the mansion's porch area isn't as high off the ground.
00:09:20 - 00:13:20Phaneron
Continuity mistake: During Gambit's flashback, the chosen one for the Assassin's Guild is shown to be placing their tithe box on the stump of a tree roughly halfway between the center ring and the outer edge. When the shot changes, the tithe box has suddenly moved to the center of the stump, and the tithe box itself is suddenly wider and shorter and has rotated 90°.
Continuity mistake: The amount of damage to Cyclops' uniform decreases. When his Danger Room session is first terminated, his uniform is mostly missing around his shoulders and chest. A few shots later, the aforementioned area of his uniform is not as torn up.
00:04:15 - 00:04:50Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Red Skull is leaving Wolverine and Captain America alone, he sets Captain America's shield on a table and Wolverine is shown to be hanging from stocks by his wrists with Captain America on his left and the table on his right at roughly a 45 degree angle. In a wide shot after Red Skull has left the room, the shield has vanished from the table and Wolverine is now several feet from where he originally was, with Captain America roughly at his 12 o'clock and the table roughly at his 3 o'clock.
Continuity mistake: When Arkon states that Storm is the conqueror of his heart, he is holding up a goblet with his left hand and extending his right hand towards her. Not only is the bracelet on his right hand gold when it should be silver (the bracelet on his left hand remains silver in this shot), but his right hand looks rather effeminate. Arkon and Storm were sitting right next to each other and no one was shown to be standing between them in any other shot, so the right hand in question couldn't have belonged to another person.
Continuity mistake: When Rogue is talking to Wolverine through her watch communicator, in the closeup shots the watch is shown to be around her glove, on her wrist. In the wide shot, the watch is either around her sleeve just beneath her glove or it has disappeared entirely.
Continuity mistake: When Sarah resuscitates Cyclops, they are by the edge of the swimming pool. When the shot changes to Cyclops blasting through the screen door, the pool is nowhere to be seen, nor is the puddle of water that was under Cyclops in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: The layout of the living room in Killgrave's house varies depending on the shot. Sometimes the half-circle couch is next to a staircase and sometimes it is not. The piano is also in a different spot on the floor each time it is shown. There are also chairs that appear and disappear throughout the scene.
Continuity mistake: When the X-mansion is shown at the end of the episode, the landscaping around it is different than what was shown early in the episode. When the mansion was first shown, there is a shrub in the shape of a circle on the lawn across from the mansion, but at the end of the episode, the circle-shaped shrub has turned into some bushes. The bushes and trees around the mansion are also different looking and at the far side of the mansion the shrubs have grown taller. Additionally, when Wolverine is walking away from the mansion at the end, a hedge-wall has appeared next to the mansion. It's actually common for the landscaping outside the mansion to vary drastically from episode to episode. This is the first time I noticed it changing within the same episode.
00:04:25 - 00:19:25
Continuity mistake: When the group is standing together in a circle at the end, Xavier is sort of in the center of the circle and Rogue and Storm are several feet to his right. When the shot changes, Rogue and Storm are suddenly right next to Xavier.
Continuity mistake: When the group is talking to Cameron Hodge's Phalanx facsimile, sometimes Forge is behind Beast on his left, Mr. Sinister is behind Forge on his left, and Warlock is behind Forge and Mr. Sinister. Other times Warlock is behind Beast on his left and Forge and Mr. Sinister are not in the shot.
00:10:45 - 00:12:45Phaneron
Continuity mistake: After Magneto and Wolverine have been captured, when Wolverine is asking Magneto what is going on, the perspective of the shot makes it look like Magneto is looking down on Wolverine from a considerably taller height when they are both standing on a level floor. Additionally, the square slabs that make up the floor become smaller.
Continuity mistake: For the first half of this episode, Magneto is wearing a red dress-shirt with a black tie under a dark gray trenchcoat. After he is captured by the High Evolutionary, he is suddenly wearing his usual red and purple costume. Even if Magneto brought a change of clothes with him, it's extremely unlikely that the High Evolutionary would change his clothes for him.
00:03:40 - 00:12:40Phaneron
Continuity mistake: The style of the lettering on Magda's gravestone changes after the goat-woman runs away from Magneto. There is also a stone that was next to the grave when it is first shown that has suddenly disappeared in the same shot of the goat-woman running away.
00:09:10 - 00:09:45Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Bova is bringing the baby twins to Django and Marya's house, the arm she is carrying the respective twin in changes depending on the shot. When she is first shown walking towards the house, she is holding Wanda in her left arm and Pietro in her right. When she is walking up the steps to the door, she is carrying Pietro in her left arm and Wanda in her right. When the shot changes after Django opens the door, the twins have switched arms again, and then again when she hands the babies to Django and Marya.
Continuity mistake: When the biker discovers the children hiding in the tree, his motorcycle is parked right next to the tree with the left side of his motorcycle facing the pit. When he gets back on the motorcycle, it is suddenly several feet away from the tree and the front wheel is facing the pit.
Continuity mistake: When Leech is first shown in his sick bed, he is shirtless and under the sheets. When he begins receiving a blood transfusion from Wolverine, he is fully clothed and also wearing a beanie. Given the weak and near-death state he was in, it's extremely unlikely the other Morlocks would bother dressing him.
00:09:20 - 00:14:15Phaneron
Continuity mistake: In the flashback during Magneto's memorial, when the Nazis are approaching his home it says "Lehnsherr" on the door. After they kick the door open, the writing on the door has disappeared and either a hatch or a small window has appeared on the door from nowhere.
Continuity mistake: When Fabian Cortez is scapegoating Gambit in front of the mob, he grabs him by the blue clothing that lines the body armor on his chest. When he says to Gambit "Mark my words X-Man..." the blue clothing is now the same brown color as Gambit's trenchcoat.
Continuity mistake: At the very end of the previous episode after Proteus had messed with Wolverine's sense of reality, Wolverine is shown whimpering in an open area. When Wolverine is shown at the beginning of this episode still whimpering, he has suddenly moved next to a treeline. Given the state of shock he was in, it's doubtful he would have gotten up and moved.
Continuity mistake: When Rogue is attempting to rescue Gambit from the avalanche, Gambit's right hand goes from being gloveless to gloved. There is even a point when she is pulling him out of the snow that a glove instantaneously materializes on his hand and then disappears just as quickly.
Continuity mistake: When Beast says "We appear to be at the mercy of our hosts," he is noticeably further away from Cyclops than he is from the rest of the episode. The captive X-Men are chained to the floor with not much slack, so he could not have simply moved away from Cyclops on his own.
Continuity mistake: When Storm breaks off communication with Beast, the animation suggests that she is removing the communicators from her chest, but they remain in place. A couple of shots later, they are completely gone. They then reappear and disappear throughout the rest of the episode.
Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the episode, Sauron can be seen wearing the necklace of Garokk. Not only is he not wearing the necklace a few shots later, but he isn't even supposed to have the necklace until a few minutes later in the episode when Zaladane gives it to him after he reverts to his human form.
00:01:05 - 00:04:10Phaneron
Continuity mistake: The three tear marks in Wolverine's uniform from when Lady Deathstrike slashes him change position several times. When she first slashes him, the tear marks appear on his chest. Other shots show the tears to be closer to his abdomen.
00:13:50 - 00:16:00Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Wolverine is trying to get to Professor Oyama, he slashes twice at the door leaving six claw marks. When the door is shown again after Wolverine is reacting to the explosion, there are suddenly several more claw marks without him ever slashing at the door again.
Continuity mistake: Magneto reveals to Senator Kelly that he went to Washington, DC to personally witness his assassination. The flashback to the previous episode reveals that Magneto was watching Mystique (masquerading as Gambit) attempt to assassinate Kelly and the real Gambit's intervention through a window. Magneto can be seen as plain as day watching in the window in the flashback, yet in the actual episode, Magneto is never there. The design of the window is also different, as well as the color of the curtains. The room itself also appears to be smaller in the flashback.
Continuity mistake: When Rogue goes to touch Wolverine with her bare hand to stop him, she is shown removing the glove from her right hand. After Wolverine collapses, Rogue is now missing the glove from her left hand, and her entire left arm, including the hand, is solid green.
