Goofs

Anachronisms 

The motorcycle young Johnny Blaze is working on when he meets the Devil is an Evolution Sportster, introduced in 1986. That particular engine configuration was made between 1991 and 2003.

Character error 

In the end, when Blaze/Rider burns the souls of Blackheart, while they show what Blackheart's seen, and you can hear what he says, in the middle of all chaos he says "Oh My God".

During one of the stunts a character is knocked out hitting the fence. The crew immediately remove his helmet. You should *never* remove the helmet of an unconscious biker unless there are problems with their airway.

Continuity 

Before the big jump Johnny drinks out of a coffee pot, spilling coffee on the front of his jacket. In the next shot there is no coffee on the jacket.

When Johnny and Mack are talking after Mack turns off the chimp video, Johnny has his martini glass of jellybeans. The shot over Mack's shoulder shows the top layer of jellybeans is almost all yellow, most notably the beans nearest to Johnny. In the reverse shot (as Johnny's speaking and the shot switches to a low shot near the arm of the chair) there are red jellybeans that should be visible in the other shot, but are not. This could be due to the glass turning though.

When Blaze Sr. is crashing, in the rear view you see him clear the launch ramp and start to fall to the side and off of his bike, both still well within the flaming hoop. When Johnny rushes in and sees the aftermath the hoop is severely warped at the top and a piece of it can be seen at the side of the ramp. The bike is seen further down the ramp from Blaze Sr. and couldn't possibly have done that kind of damage.

When Johnny is cut by the punk purse snatcher's knife and has to be sewn up by the Caretaker, his leather jacket never shows any place where the knife enters.

When Blaze steps on his bike and says "Let's ride", he turns into Ghost Rider, and you can see his skeletal hands on fire (no gloves). In the very next shot, as Blaze and Slade are riding through the desert, Blaze suddenly has gloves on.

When the birds-eye camera moves through the city, and at several other points in the movie, the cars are on the opposite sides of the road. While the movie is set in America, the film was shot in Melbourne, Australia.

When Johnny Blaze falls while trying to land he slides up and hits his back against a wall. In the next shot he is seen lying on his back several feet away with obvious drag marks made by his helmet when some crew member dragged him away from the wall.

When Blackheart is walking up to the bar and the shot pans to the Angel Killer looking at him you can see several people also out on the porch. When Blackheart kills the biker no one attempted to stop him or alert the others. He also walks in unhindered.

When the adult Johnny Blaze approaches his motorcycle, which is running and revving by itself, he mounts it and his hands are shown stuck to the handlebars, and his left foot (at least) stuck to the footrest. However, after the confrontation with Mephistopheles, as the bike takes off on its own the camera moves to a rear shot, and both of Johnny's feet are on the ground. Then it begins to move and both feet are on the footrests again.

Errors in geography 

The skyline of the city is not of any city in the United States, but of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Factual errors 

Six Blackhawk helicopters cannot fit into a 300 ft span. Each one has a wingspan (rotors) of 54 feet. Allowing for absolutely zero space in between their rotors, that would total 324 ft. However, an actual goalpost-to-goalpost jump would be 360 ft, so they would narrowly fit.

When Ghost Rider is walking towards Roxanne after riding down the skyscraper she is clearly in the line of fire from the cops behind her. They are later seen shooting freely without hitting her.

When Johnny's helmet visor smashes during the stunt in the beginning of the movie the sound effects make it sound like the visor is made of glass. Helmet visors are made of plastic.

When the stadium roof opened up to let the helicopters land, it opened immediately. There is no stadium retractable roof that opens that fast.

When Blaze gets arrested, the Captain shows him a Deputy Sheriff badge but calls the other cop and officer. Police Officers and Deputy Sheriff's badges are totally different. Also the cars said Police on the light bar, but said Sheriff on the side of the car. It is not possible to be both.

The goalposts are misplaced. They can clearly be seen at the goal line, which explains why the jump is measured at 300 feet. In reality, actual goalposts are at the back of the endzone, making them 360 feet apart.

The dialogue referring to the football field jump incorrectly states the jump is from "field goal to field goal" when it should be "goal line to goal line." In American football a field goal is a 3 point score when the football is place-kicked between the 2 goalposts.

Blaze's "Touchdown Jump" is repeatedly referred to as a "300 foot jump". As a "goalpost to goalpost" jump, it would have been 360 feet.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

During his first night as Ghost Rider, Blaze whistles for his bike to come and get him. A neat trick considering he has no lips or a tongue. However, the same lack of lips and tongue does not hinder his ability to speak. One can simply assume the same power that lets him speak lets him whistle.

During the highway scene, both directions of traffic are on the same side of a divided highway, with no cones between them. You can tell by the dashed white lane separating line. When rerouting traffic, there should be cones separating the lines of traffic moving in opposite directions, to make sure the drivers know to stay in their lane.

Plot holes 

When Johnny Blaze first meets the caretaker he has a knife wound that he got from the street punk he confronts as Ghost Rider. Later in the film Ghost Rider is riddled with bullets and yet when he becomes Johnny Blaze again he has no injuries.

When Ghost Rider takes Blackheart's souls, images of the previous kills he made are seen in the fire. However these kills would be credited to Blackheart's own soul, which is in hell (revealed the first time Ghost Rider tries to punish Blackheart earlier in the film). The souls Ghost Rider is taking are those of the villagers, and so the images that Blackheart would see in Ghost Rider's eyes would be their kills, not his.

Revealing mistakes 

After Ghost Rider gets the leather jacket with the spikes on the shoulder you can see his chain pass through one of the spikes in scenes where he wraps his chain around himself, revealing the CGI effect.

In the long shot of the rain in the desert (which later turns to falling fire) the rain is quite pronounced and heavy, yet the splashes in the puddles are only from a light drizzle.

When Blaze and Slade are riding through the desert, they pass a lizard, which then burns up. The lizard's leg twitches after it is a skeleton, which is impossible as there were no muscles left.

In the beginning of the movie when the Devil comes to talk to Johnny in the tent, the Devil's shadow is cast on the side of the tent showing a bent over old man shadow. However the actor's real shadow can be seen to the left of the CGI Shadow.

When Blackheart Pushes Johnny to the ground when he is in his room, you can see the "wood" bend and give in where he fell, obviously showing the rubber "wood" prop.
