The Ringer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The steps Zelda was sitting on while judging the amateur magician contest were a brownish red color. As Link is fighting the dragon on the same bricks that is made of, they are still that color. But one shot just after he pulls out his shield those same bricks are shown as gray like concrete, then back to brown again. (00:09:55)

Continuity mistake: Af the amateur magicians contest, there is a fountain in the court yard. There are some statues in the middle of it. But after Zelda screams and Link looks out the window of his tower, the view from above shows no statues in the same fountain. (00:07:20 - 00:09:30)

Continuity mistake: The shot where the birds fly up to the castle shows that the tower Link is in has windows. There is one visible towards the top, and a few more on the second level. Later, when Link whistles at Zelda, it shows another exterior view of that same tower with Link in the top window. Now there are fewer windows on the lower level. (00:01:00 - 00:01:50)

Continuity mistake: After Ganon is blown up inside the secret entrance, the Triforce of Wisdom bounces out and lands next to Link and Zelda who are strapped together with his belt. There is no visible buckle at this time. Shot changes to a closer view on the same side and the buckle instantly appears. (00:14:15)

Continuity mistake: Zelda and Link fall through a tree and land on the road after being slingshot. Both the shot of Link landing, and the shot of Zelda landing in his lap show leaves falling next to them and on the ground around them. When the shot cuts to Link laughing, all the leaves that fell vanish. (00:12:00)

Continuity mistake: The magician that explodes the tomato is standing in front of the stairs that Zelda's throne is on. The view from her angle shows a black magician dressed in pink and purple standing beside him. Judging by the clothing, I will assume it's a girl. A few shots later after Ganon is heard laughing, the tomato magician and this girl turn around and you see them from Ganon's angle. Suddenly the black girl is now a white girl. She is black again in later shots. (00:07:45)

Continuity mistake: As Ganon is yelling in anger at the Moblins, repeating the word "blast" over and over, you see the pedestal that the Triforce of Power is on sitting in front of the Evil Jar. It is shown as skinny and a solid shape. Then when Ganon is telling the Triforce his plan to join the amateur magician contest, the pedestal changes significantly. It is now shorter, has spikes all over it, and is fatter. (00:06:10)

Continuity mistake: As Zelda knocks on the door and Link goes to it, he has a satchel draped over his shoulder with the buckle to his back. As he turns to open the door, you see the buckle at the very end of the strap with nothing running through it. The shot changes to him opening the door and leaning in to kiss Zelda, right before he is slapped, and you see there is some of the strap now running through the buckle and hanging past it. This changes back and forth a couple more times during this scene. (00:04:05)

Continuity mistake: Link puts the pillow over the Moblin's head that has the staff and jumps back. The Moblin with the sword runs into the other Moblin and they both fall over. Link then holds up his sword to change his zap laser and begins blasting the Moblins. The shot cuts back to those two Moblins lying down on the ground trying to get up. The staff, sword, and pillow have all vanished. (00:03:30)

Continuity mistake: The Moblin that was hit with the pillow is seen standing next to the door in one shot with a mouth full of feathers. He is standing with a slight hunch and his head is bent down slightly. The very next shot cuts to him spitting the feathers out, but he is already leaning back to inhale between the shots. (00:03:05)

Continuity mistake: Link smacks one of the Moblins in the face with a pillow and it sends feathers flying all around. The shot then cuts, still having Link in the frame, and now there are no feathers in the air or on the ground next to him. (00:02:40)

Continuity mistake: When Link gets out of bed, you can see there is nothing on it but his sheets and pillow. But when Link throws the Moblin at the bed and hits it, suddenly Link's sword is on the bed where he was sleeping just moments before, and it gets launched. (00:01:20 - 00:02:30)

Continuity mistake: Link sits up after he awakens. The shot from behind his back as he is sitting in his bed shows a table with a blue vase on it sitting next to the wall by his bed. It is out of his reach, even if he leaned. But then the shot changes as he is stretching and now the table is only just outside of arm's reach. Also the portrait of Zelda is closer and bigger.

Continuity mistake: Link and Zelda try to kiss after they defeat Ganon. Their faces get very close together when Spryte interrupts them. They both look at Spyte while their faces are close together. Next shot from a little distance, and suddenly Link and Zelda's faces are further apart. (00:14:45)

Continuity mistake: Zelda and Link sling shoot through the air to catch Ganon. They land in the road and Link's back is towards the side of the road as Zelda lands on him. Next shot, his back is going along the same direction as the road. They turned 90 degrees in an instant. (00:12:00)

Continuity mistake: Ganon escapes with the Triforce of Wisdom and Link says "We'll never catch him now". As he says this, he raises his right fist into the air. Shot changes to Zelda grabbing a seed behind him and his fist is still in the air. She turns and bends down to plant the seed and the shot changes. Suddenly both Link's hands are behind his back. (00:11:20)

Continuity mistake: The bat tells Ganon that Link is guarding the Triforce. He then aims his hands at Zelda and the perspective switches to showing her through his hands as he uses it like a scope to zoom in on the lizard in her hands. His hands are up for this, but the very next shot, his hands are suddenly back down on his arm rests, and he then raises his left hand again to blast the lizard. (00:08:55)

Continuity mistake: During the fight with the Moblins, the one with the staff breaks the vases on the table next to Link's bed. This also causes the painting of Zelda to fall and break. A few shots later, the vase and painting are back where they are supposed to be and perfectly fine. Throughout the fight, the painting keeps changing from fixed to broken, and even how much it's broken constantly. (00:03:10)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Right in the beginning of the title sequence, Zelda and Link walk into a room and see the Triforce of Wisdom. Zelda even says it is the Triforce of Wisdom. It is green. But throughout the entire show in the episodes, the Triforce of Wisdom is shown as blue. (00:00:05)

Question: Once Zelda and Link confront Ganon on the road, he summons more skeletons up and they surround Link and Zelda. 7 Skeletons against Link and Zelda. So what's Link's plan of action? He takes off his belt and wraps it around himself and Zelda, strapping them together back to back to fight the 7 skeletons. This to me seems like it would just hinder their mobility. So my question is what is the really point of Link strapping himself to Zelda like that while surrounded? does it actually make sense to do that?

Chosen answer: It'll be to ensure that they're always facing directly away from each other, 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock, meaning between the two of them they've pretty much got 360 degree coverage. Otherwise there's a chance they might end up at say 12 o'clock and 3 o'clock, leaving themselves exposed from another direction.
