Sing for the Unicorn - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: After defeating the giant Tin Suits, Link catches Zelda while she's falling from the air. In this shot, you can see where a trap door will open up in the floor below Link. Now, it is pretty normal to see doors or other objects that will move being a slightly lighter color than the surrounding things that are the same color in older cartoons, and that in itself is not a mistake. However, this time it is so blatantly obvious because the lighter area on a gray ground is a light pink. (00:08:35)

Continuity mistake: After Zelda touches the first giant Tin Suit statue and it comes to life, she and Link quickly back away from it and then stand their guard. They are standing quite close together. It cuts to a reverse angle just before the Tin Suit kicks Link and they are suddenly further apart from each other. (00:07:45)

Continuity mistake: Trying to track down Ganon and King Harkinian, Link and Zelda enter the front area of Ganon's lair. There are 3 giant Tin Suit statues in the opening room. Link and Zelda walk between them and are a good distance from any of them. It cuts to a different angle as they draw near and suddenly they are much closer to the one on the left, Zelda now in arm's distance. (00:07:25)

Continuity mistake: In his lair, Ganon goes on a quick rant after King Harkinian says that Zelda and Link will rescue him. During his rant, for a couple of frames one of his tusks changes from white to the color of his skin, then back again. (00:06:35)

Continuity mistake: The Tin Suits kick the King into a circular room and close a metal door behind him. Then Ganon teleports into the room and the angle changes. When this happens, the door has vanished. The King is also suddenly further back from the center of the room between shots. (00:06:45)

Other mistake: In Ganon's lair after he is captured, King Harkinian is standing by two Tin Suits that are guarding him. They have an X shaped red strap thing across their chest. The one on the right has his not completely drawn. The strap that meets towards the middle on the back layer towards his upper right has one of the lines not fully connecting. As the Tin Suit turns a little, it suddenly connects to be complete, but then he turns back and the line is broken again. (00:06:15)

Continuity mistake: After Ganon captures King Harkinian, he is seen in his lair gloating over his victory and holding his Unicorn Pegasus. The "Evil Jar" is behind him and the stand is bright orange. It cuts to a close up of Ganon with his horse and the leg of the Evil Jar is still visible, but suddenly changes to a dark brown. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: Falling to his doom, Link is plummeting face first towards the ground after Ganon zaps the bats that Link was holding onto. The shot just before Zelda saves him again shows him falling face first. But it changes to him hitting the wheelbarrow of hay and suddenly he is falling back first. (00:04:55)

Continuity mistake: Link first tries to rescue King Harkinian from Ganon in the beginning of the episode and takes down three of Ganon's bat minions right off with his sword lasers. Then three of the remaining four grab him by the arms. Between shots, the position of the one on the bottom right's hands changes position on Link's arm. Link also changes from looking right to looking left. (00:03:30)

Revealing mistake: As it first shows Ganon on his horse with a rope around the king, look closely at his leg. For the first second or two, it is disconnected from his thigh and below the horse's wing. It then suddenly jumps up to where it's supposed to be. (00:03:10)

Continuity mistake: Link and Zelda rush to her window after hearing the King scream and see Ganon flying in on his stolen unicorn Pegasus with seven of his minion bats accompanying him. Between shots, the formation the bats are flying in changes. (00:02:50)

Sing for the Unicorn - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: After the King gives Link some flowers to help him get Zelda to kiss him, the King wishes him luck and slaps him on the back. This causes Link to lose his balance and fall to swing before he was ready. He shouts and holds out the flowers with his right arm as he falls. The next shot shows him swinging towards Zelda's window, but suddenly both hands are on the rope and the flowers have vanished. Then it cuts again to him swinging though the window and his right arm is extended again holding the flowers. (00:02:15)

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the episode, King Harkinian and Link walk out onto the castle walls. Neither one cast a shadow. Yes it is at night, but there are lights around and other objects like stairs and walls are seen casting shadows. (00:00:55)

Continuity mistake: While Ganon has the King tied up, the rope is on the outside of the Unicorn's wing that he is sitting on. But once Link gets up on the level with him, the rope is suddenly behind the Unicorn's wing. (00:03:20)

Revealing mistake: Ganon gets a rope around King Harkinian and is sitting on his Pegasus Unicorn. In a few frames as the King and rope move around, you can see the rope pass right through the Pegasus' wing. (00:03:15)

Continuity mistake: After Link crashes down on Zelda's table, he is lying flat and the window he just came through is right there beside him. But when Zelda leans in during a close up to try and give Link a kiss, it is suddenly just solid wall on that same side of Link. (00:02:40)

Continuity mistake: When the King first hands the flowers to Link, the detail on them is not drawn out very much. The peddles and center look like almost one solid pink piece. But a couple shots later, and being from the exact same angle and distance, the details on the flowers as Link holds them is suddenly much clearer. Individual peddles are visible, and the centers are more pronounced. (00:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Link is looking down at Zelda, her larger window is separated into two parts by a column between them. When Link swings in and it shows an interior view of that window, the column is suddenly skinnier. The window itself is also smaller. (00:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Link explains to King Harkinian that he is going to swing into his daughter's window to get her to kiss him, the King tells him he should take flowers. He picks 3 flowers from a nearby flower arrangement. But the 3 flowers he ends up with are much larger than any of the flowers that were in the arrangement. (00:02:05)

Continuity mistake: As Link is talking to King Harkinian about giving Zelda flowers so she would kiss him, shots of Zelda through the window show a blue table behind her cot. There is a brown book on it beside a light blue vase. It is slightly difficult to tell, but by judging the thickness of the book, there is only one book there. But when Link swings in and lands on the table, just before the book flies away, you can see it is actually two books stacked on top of each other, and the height of them together is much higher than when seen previously.
