Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The holding jar's base section has spikes all around it. But when Spryte comes in through the trap door that Link and Zelda fell from, a shot from her perspective shows no spikes on the jar.

00:28:05

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Other mistake: The main part of the holding jar is transparent glass and open at the top. As the crab creature reaches in and begins pulling Link out, the dimensions and physics of the glass are suddenly totally broken. The back part of the glass at the top is curved up down in appearance from what we see and the part close to the camera would appear curved up. But as Link is pulled out, the back down curve over laps him, making it look like he is already outside the holding jar.

00:28:00

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As the crab creature approaches the holding jar that Link and Zelda are in, Link puts his arm in front of Zelda and says "I'll handle this". The shot from beside the crab shows Link's arm stop with his hand about level with Zelda's belt. Then there is a cut to a close up, and Link's arm is now about level with Zelda's chest. It cuts back to a distance shot and again his hand is by her belt.

00:27:45

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: While in the holding jar, Link begins beating on the glass with his sword. While the crab creature shows up, his sword is suddenly sheathed again. Then moments later, back in his hand as he strikes at the crab's claws.

00:27:45

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: A trap door opens up in the secret tunnel and Link and Zelda falls into a holding jar. The base of the jar appears to be a dark green color, with white spikes all around the base of the glass part. But the shot where Ganon walks up and Link idiotically tries to blast a sword laser at him, the spikes have turned to the same green as the stand. Then they go back to white again in following shots.

00:27:15

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After saving Zelda from the roots, Link himself is grabbed by a tree root in the secret tunnel. Zelda breaks in with an arrow and Link falls on the ground. The pieces of the tree root are next to him. Then a trap door opens that they happen to be on at that moment and so Link, Zelda, and the tree root pieces fall through. But the next shot of them falling, the tree roots are gone. And when they fall into the holding jar, no tree roots follow.

00:27:05

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the secret tunnel to Ganon's lair that Link and Zelda are in after going inside the tree, some roots attack them. One wraps around Zelda, which Link then blasts with a sword laser. She falls and there are pieces of tree root on the ground around her. But as Link is then grabbed by a root, Zelda stands up and the pieces of the root that grabbed her have vanished.

00:26:25

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Ganon makes off with the Triforce and escapes to the underground, Link takes Zelda to a different secret entrance that he knows, which is in a tree trunk. As Link is reaching up to pull on a branch to open the door, Zelda is standing next to him and facing directly at the tree. But as Link begins pulling on the branch, the shot changes to a closer view and suddenly Zelda is a little further away from Link, and now facing him instead of the tree.

00:26:00

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When asking Spryte what happened, Zelda and Link are in Zelda's destroyed room. There is a knocked over table behind them with flowers and books on the floor by it. After the Triforce is discovered stolen and the scene goes back to Zelda's room where Spryte decides to help, the books by the table are gone.

00:24:35 - 00:25:10

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Earlier in the episode, Zelda is in Link's room and there is a huge pile of dirty clothes beside Link's bed. Later that same day when they rush back into his room to see if Ganon stole the Triforce, the pile is gone. Nobody was cleaning Link's room since he as faking being sick. And Link sure didn't do it since he faked being sick to get out of ANY cleaning.

00:24:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After being zapped by Ganon, Spryte tries to use her spells to clean Zelda's room. The overload throws Spryte back and she lands in a red chair. She lands n the edge of it and there is a yellow line passing under her foot. The next shot, she is suddenly a little over away from that line and closer to the center. Moments later as the bucket sprouts wings, it shows her in the center of the chair suddenly.

00:21:35

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the courtyard where the castle people are dusting out rugs and cleaning stuff, there is a fountain there. The first shot shows no water pouring out of the fountain, but you can hear it doing so. After Spryte throws down her door mat, there is a further away shot. Now you can see water pouring out of the fountain and hear it.

00:19:20

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Spryte hauls out a blue rug and tosses it on the ground to clean it. The shot of it hitting the ground and unfolding shows it lying on a dark brown surface. The lines on it make it look like it is some sort of brick or possibly wood. But then the shot cuts back to Spryte with the rug in front of her, and now the rug is sitting on a light brown surface that is obviously dirt.

00:19:30

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Zelda scares off the bird, she sits on Link's bed. Link then opens the door and is surprised to see her. He is still standing right at the doorway in the threshold. Shot changes to Zelda sitting up, then right back to Link. Suddenly Link is in the middle of the room, not at the door and he still is standing still.

00:17:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Link first tries to sell the lie that he is sick to Zelda, he is sitting on his bed after attempting to kiss her. Spryte tries to baby him, so Link wraps himself up in a sheet. The close up shot shows that there is some of the sheet under his feet and dangling off the bed. The next shot, there is no sheet under his feet, nor dangling off the bed.

00:18:15

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Zelda is standing in Link's room and complaining about the mess. Just before the Triforce of Wisdom speaks to her, it shows Zelda from behind and there is a window next to her. It is shut, and the doors are wide, have thick horizontal braces, and have O shaped rings on each side as handles. Then after the Triforce speaks, there is a shot from in front of Zelda, and the same window is shown. Now the window is skinnier, the doors on it are darker, the horizontal braces are thinner, and the O shaped rings are gone.

00:16:55

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After his fake sneeze and Spryte comes to investigate, Link is mopping next to a fire place. This shot shows him right up next to it. Then when Spryte says "Oh dear, no." The shot changes to a close up of Link. Suddenly, he is quite a bit further away from the fire place.

00:16:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Spryte hears Link do his first fake sneeze and rushes in to where Link is mopping. There is a bucket beside the fire place now that was not there a moment before.

00:16:30

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Zelda backs up into the castle and kicks the mop to Link, there is a red table and chairs behind her. This shot shows the chairs are small, and have crooked legs. But when Link walks in a few moments later, the chairs and table are larger, and the legs are now straight.

00:16:15

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The crab creature grabs Link's sword while he is in the jar and Spryte fires a magic shot at the crab. This causes the crab to rear back a little and flings Link up and out of the jar, flying over the crab's back. He lands and fires lasers at Ganon. Then suddenly the crab is somehow behind Link when Link flipped behind it.

00:28:15

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: As Ganon is making off with the Triforce of Wisdom, he looks back and sees Link and Zelda catching up to him on horseback. He yells "Blast! They're coming!" He then looks back forward. Watch closely, as he turns his head, the Triforce, which is neatly tucked under his arm, randomly jumps out of his hand for a couple frames, and then goes back.

00:25:30

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Zelda's room was just full of water, up to her windows and everything covered. Her bed even floats in it and buckets are dumping water on top of it. When Link and Zelda get inside the room after it all floods down the stairs, nothing is wet at all.

00:23:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When responding to the sound of Spryte's scream, Link opens the doors to Zelda's room and is washed out by all the water. The door is a double door at this time. But when he and Zelda go back up the steps to the same door and open it, it is now a single door.

00:23:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Quite a bit of water goes down the tower steps and washes Link and Zelda out onto the ground. Zelda's room was about half full when Link opened the door. But as soon as Zelda stands up after they are flood out, there is no water left on the ground or the steps at all. Zelda and Link don't even look wet.

00:22:50

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Audio problem: Link and Zelda are washed out of the tower by the water from Spryte's out of control spells. Link sits up and says "Is that what they call a royal flush?" His mouth does not move as he says the word 'flush'.

00:22:50

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Spryte uses her magic on the cleaning supplies in Zelda's room, unaware that Ganon zapped her and supercharged her spells. A couple mops dip into buckets of water and go down and wet the floor right by the buckets. Couple shots later when the buckets sprout wings, the floor is suddenly dry again.

00:21:55

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Zelda begins telling Spryte what to clean in her room, watch Spryte's hair. Every time the shot changes, her hair keeps changing from blonde to brown and back and forth.

00:21:25

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As the townspeople are doing their cleaning, Spryte brings out a blue rug that is rolled up and tosses it to the ground in front of her. It rolls out nice and neat. The way she threw it, it would have been lying vertical from her perspective. The shot then changes and suddenly it is horizontal to her perspective.

00:19:30

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Ganon goes on a monologue rant after the bird reports to him. There is a half circle design on the front of his helmet just below the front spike. As he moves and says the word Triforce, that half circle vanishes and then comes back. It also did this before only a few seconds earlier. All in the same shot.

00:18:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: During the fight with the deranged cleaning supplies in Zelda's room, Link gets attacked by her bed sheet and gets wrapped up. Once Zelda dispatches the mops that are attacking him, the sheet changes from being wrapped around him to just being draped over him.

00:24:20

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Ganon gets to the Triforce of Wisdom and is about to take it, he says "The Triforce is mine!". He then says "When combined with my own Triforce..." As he begins saying the second part, his mouth stops moving for a second.

00:23:20

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After the water washes Link and Zelda out of the tower, they are by the stairs. During this part while they talk, they keep changing distance and location from the stairs between shots, most notably the far shot when Link hands Zelda some shrunken weapons.

00:23:00

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Zelda has her hand on a large brown rug on a rack as she hears Spryte scream. Buckets with wings fly out and down past her and the shot changes to a closer view. When this happens, the brown rug is significantly smaller than just a few shots before.

00:22:20

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Spyte's spells go haywire and things lose control, a rag flies out of a bucket and takes shape to kick the fairy. As it comes out of the bucket, it is a pale green color. The next shot of it attacking Spryte, it is white.

00:22:05

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Just after Ganon zaps Spryte, Link is in his room practicing with his sword saying 'take that, Ganon'. He is moving past some widows and some flowers come into view between the two windows. The shot cuts to him jumping to kick a chair, and the flowers vanish.

00:25:35

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Other mistake: After Ganon zaps Spryte with a spell to make her spells go crazy, he begins laughing. Watch closely at this point. Just above his hand, the only one visible at this time, a random black line like thing just appears and begins moving up. It has a couple spasms in its movement as well. I cannot tell what it is, and it is definitely not a bug. Whatever it is, it's not supposed to be there.

00:20:20

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Before Ganon gets to the castle, it shows several people by the fountain cleaning. There are two racks beside a doorway, one having an orange rug on it, and the other a blue one. Spryte comes out and begins dusting a different rug. Shot changes back, and now the racks with those rugs are gone.

00:19:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After the bird reports to Ganon, he turns to the 'Evil Jar' and snaps his fingers. The bird is right beside him. But the shot changes to a far view, and the bird is gone. Then, after about two seconds, without the shot even changing, the bird suddenly appears beside him. Just poof, back out of thin air.

00:18:50

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The bird returns to Ganon and reports. As Ganon begins moving and talking, the lines on his violet strip around the top of his robe begin vanishing, appearing, and changing.

00:18:40

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: A bird flies into Link's room and attacks Zelda. As it swoops in, its tail feathers are solid brown, and the tips are squared off. They look this way all the time, except when it lands in the dirty clothes and Zelda forces its head into it. This shot shows the tips of the tail feathers a bluish white, and are pointed.

00:17:15

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Zelda stands next to the pile of dirty clothes in Link's room after the Triforce speaks to her, there is no table standing beside Link's bed. But when the bird attacks and she falls on the bed, there is suddenly a table beside the bed which has a blue vase on it that she smacks the bird with.

00:16:55

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Link begins mopping and pretending to be sick, Spryte flies in. When she goes to him, Link's shadow is gone, despite the sun being behind him. His shadow was present only a couple shots earlier.

00:16:35

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The distance between Link and the door becomes much shorter from when Zelda tosses him the mop, and when he begins walking inside. He is a good length away at first, but shot changes to him walking and he takes only 3 small steps to enter. He also comes through the middle door when he was just in front of the door on the left.

00:16:00

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Link picked a flower for Zelda from a low bush/tree next to the doorway they stood by in the beginning. As Link walks into the room with the mop, that bush has disappeared.

00:16:15

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As Zelda tosses Link a mop, there is a fireplace with a cauldron in it visible behind her. When the shot changes to Link walking into the room, the fireplace and cauldron have drastically grown in size. It then shrinks back down again as he begins mopping.

00:16:15

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After fighting off the bird in Link's room, Zelda sits on his bed for a moment. The sheets are gold when she does. Moments later, Link sees her and tries to tackle her for a kiss but she moves and he hits the bed. Now the sheets are white.

00:17:45

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The establishing shot of Link and Zelda shows a doorway behind them. You can see the floor stretch back a ways but there is nothing visible on it. A few shots later as Zelda is backing into the room, you can now see a nearby table with chairs, as well as a mop right on the doorway threshold that was not there a moment before.

00:15:50

Quantom X

Cold Spells - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The first shot showing Link and Zelda, they are standing in front of some doorways. It is bright out and you can see in the doorways no problem as bright as day. The shot changes to Link handing Zelda a flower and the doorway behind her is now pitch black. The arched stones around the door are also much smaller, and the door is shorter too.
