Lavagirl flash burns numerous things when she holds them yet when she holds the ice she is sucking on it doesn't melt in her hands.

When Linus captures the three heroes, Max asks "How did you get so powerful?" Linus shows that he has his dream book, which he shows upside-down. In the next shot it is still held at arm's length, but right-side-up.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Lavagirl's hair is on fire, Sharkboy cools it off by putting water on it. A few shots later, her hair isn't wet at all (it's not in a face shot, so it's hard to see). However, she is supposed to be hot enough to flash-burn anything she touches, so it would make sense that her hair gets dried exceptionally fast.

Plot holes 

At the beginning of the film Max tells the class that Sharkboy grew gills, but when he is attacked by the electric eels they claim that he'd drown. If he had gills he would have been able to breathe.

Revealing mistakes 

When Sharkboy is carrying Lavagirl towards the volcano, you can easily see it's a dummy he's holding.

When Max's parents are going through the tornado to the school to get him, the tornado has enough force so that his dad has to hold on to a tree while the mum gets lifted off the ground. When she's sucked into the tornado, Max's dad lets go of the tree and stands there, not being pulled in at all.

When Lavagirl jumped into the water to save Sharkboy, the height of the splash is not proportionate to the height of her leap.

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

Towards the end of the movie when Max is back at school fighting Mr. Electric with his classmates, after he's defeated, there's a wide shot showing all the students in the demolished classroom with Mr. Electricidad, the teacher. It is obviously not George Lopez standing there, but a much younger man with a goatee.
