D'artagnon turns around to Gerard and says, "In the meantime, give my regards to your sister." He then turns back round and a red and gold-ish striped blanket is strapped to the back of the saddle which was not there before.

At the end, when Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'artagnan are in their Musketeer gear, complete with light colored hats. When they give chase to Girard and his brothers, the light colored hats are separated. The first light colored hat doesn't come in until midway instead of all four being together at the start.

The copyright date (in Roman numerals) is incorrect in the end credits (it is missing an 'M'). The film shows (c) MCXCIII (1193) when it should read (c) MCMXCIII (1993).

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Aramis is shown quoting Genesis (the first chapter in the Bible) while presumably reading from a Bible, which is open in the middle. Given Aramis' reputation and the subsequent action, it is possible that he was quoting from memory and merely had a book open in front of him to give the impression of piety.

When Rochefort angrily slashes the three candles with one sword sweep, the remaining stumps of the candles are all of different heights.

In the final fight between D'Artagnan and Rochefort, after Rochefort has knocked D'Artagnan down the stairs, we cut to see him rolling. There are no stairs in this shot, he is obviously rolling down a ramp.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Anachronisms 

During the execution rescue scene as Aramis and Porthos assure D'Artagnan that his rescue is at hand, Porthos remarks that the axe was a "gift from the Tsarina of Tokyo." The Three Musketeers story takes place between 1625 and 1628, a full 240 years before the city of Edo in Japan is renamed "Tokyo" by the Emperor Meiji in 1868. Regardless of how far fetched Porthos' claims may be intended to be, there is no historical way he could have known the term "Tokyo," which means "Eastern Capital" in traditional or archaic Japanese.

Continuity 

When the cardinal shots Aramis,he falls to the ground,and Porthos runs to him. When Athos is there too, they discover that Aramis' cross saved his life,yet it is clearly seen that the cardinal shots him in his stomach and not upper, where the cross is hanging from his neck.
