Character error 

When Yugi uses Kaiba's "Return from the Different Dimension", he mentions how Kaiba wanted 'a perfect victory', but Kaiba never said that - he only thought it.

When Kaiba and Anubis argue over how to defeat Yami Yugi, they both mention they could win the duel there and then, but with the way the field was, there's no way Kaiba could have won on that very same turn.

When Peten the Dark Clown attacks the Pharoah, he stabs him through the back; however, Kaiba calls the attack "Bloodlust slash"; this is incorrect as a slash leads to a cut, not a puncture.

Continuity 

When Kaiba uses the 'Shining Nova' effect of "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" to destroy "Pyramid of Light", although the attack failed, "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" disappears, and later Yami Yugi activates "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon it from the Graveyard. However, "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" is shown to appear next to Anubis for a short time, after it had already been destroyed following the activation of its 'Shining Nova' effect.

In the Japanese version of the movie, when Yami Yugi Summons "Magician's Valkyria" and attacks "Peten the Dark Clown", he's briefly shown to have "Magician's Valkyria" with "Premature Burial", "Mage Power" and 2 face-down cards. However, that's the field he has 1 turn later, when he revives "Magician's Valkyria" to face "Blue-Eyes White Dragon".

Errors in geography 

Right after the opening title, many people are watching a television screen showing Yami Yugi dueling Seto Kaiba , which shows him drawing Exodia's head, but the card is in Japanese.

Factual errors 

When "Peten the Dark Clown" is destroyed by battle, Kaiba activates "Deck Destruction Virus", which can only be activated when a Fiend-Type Monster with 500 ATK or less is destroyed by battle. "Peten the Dark Clown" is a Spellcaster-Type monster.

When Kaiba stated that the ATK of "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" increased by 300 for each Dragon-type monster in his Graveyard, he forgot about "Paladin of White Dragon", which is Dragon-Type as well. So the ATK of "Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon" should have increased to 4800, which would have been more than enough to destroy "Sorcerer of Dark Magic", causing Yami Yugi to lose the Duel.

According to the novelization of this movie, Yami Yugi also possessed a "Gemini Elf", 2 "Skilled Dark Magicians" and an extra "Magician's Valkyria". However, even after having most of his Deck sent to the Graveyard by "Deck Destruction Virus", "Sorcerer of Dark Magic" only had used 3 Spellcasters to weaken Seto Kaiba's monsters.

When Anubis activates "Inferno Tempest" and "Fallout" to make Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba drop all of their cards, 2 copies of "The Winged Dragon of Ra" and "King's Knight" are shown flying out of Yami Yugi's Duel Disk. There should only be one of each Egyptian God card in existence, and Yami Yugi is never shown to own more than 1 "King's Knight" in the anime.

When "Sphinx Teleia" destroys "Obnoxious Celtic Guardian", "Sphinx Teleia's" effect wasn't activated, which would have decreased Yami Yugi's Life Points to 0. However, when "Andro Sphinx" destroyed "Watapon", its effect was activated (this was not changed when it aired in Japan, though Yami Yugi did mention it). In addition, "Obnoxious Celtic Guardian" should not have been destroyed thanks to its effect; the ATK "Sphinx Teleia" was higher than 1900.
  • However, in the original film, Anubis said that it was too soon for Yugi/Yami Yugi to lose the duel so quickly, which may imply that he could control the effects of his monsters.

Miscellaneous 

In the English version of the movie, during Yami Yugi's final turn after his Draw Phase, "Exchange" and "Diffusion Wave-Motion" are visible in his hand though he later activates a card called "Double Spell" which he was never shown to possess in his hand ("Diffusion Wave-Motion" was shown by mistake). In the Japanese version of the movie, it was fixed to show "Exchange" and "Double Spell".

When Kaiba has his computer run a simulation of a duel between him and Yugi, Yugi is listed as using "Paladin of White Dragon".

Plot holes 

Seto Kaiba's plan for a 'perfect victory' by Summoning all 3 of Yami Yugi's Egyptian God cards would not normally work, as "Return from the Different Dimension" only affects cards removed from play that you possess. Since they were Yami Yugi's cards, Kaiba would be unable to Summon them. It is possible that Kaiba probably had another strategy to make "Return from the Different Dimension" work with Yami Yugi's monsters.

When the duel between Seto and Pegasus begins, the latter is shown with 4 cards in his hand. As per the trading card rules you must begin the game with 5 cards (though the next shot shows the correct amount of cards in his hand).
