Errors in geography 

Ramírez walks through modern-day Scotland, yet no one he speaks with is Scottish. The confused actor uses a Cockney accent, the man on the street complimenting Ramírez's clothes has an American accent, and the tailor has an upper-class English accent.

Factual errors 

The subway Katana hijacks is traveling at over 400 MPH (235 KPH) when it crashes through the wall, yet stops only a few feet from the impact point, violating the Law of Acceleration. Additionally, the subway system would have protective barricades inside the subway or tunnel to prevent the crash.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Katana, who has never visited Earth, knows about league draft rules and the Wizard of Oz. He monitors McLeod through a screen, and he could have learned about them through it.

Plot holes 

In the Renegade version, the closing credits list Bruno Curichelli as "Zeist Chief Justice" even though that version eliminated the Planet Zeist plot.

Revealing mistakes 

When Katana throws Blake out of a window, the figure that hits the ground is a very, very obvious dummy.
