Character error 

Riddick "forgets" the exact number of stars which surrounded M-344/G, the planet on which he crashed with John's during the initial film in the trilogy, Pitch Black. He tells Boss it two stars, when the film clearly showed that it had three,

Continuity 

When Riddick is trying to get past the creature to the other side of the planet, the water in front of the stairs is deep enough that two of the creatures (one very large) can be fully submerged in it. However, when he runs back with the dog, it is shallow enough that he can slide across it without trouble.
When Riddick is about to push over the obelisk, to create a hiding place so he can sleep, there are a few rocks in the hole he will hide in. In the next shot, as the obelisk is falling, the hole is empty. He wouldn't have had time to clear out the hole as the obelisk was falling.

Factual errors 

A character claims to track Riddick using some device that has detected human pheromones. Since Riddick has been established to be Furian, he wouldn't have human pheromones.

In the opening sequence a pterodactyl-type creature (with a ferocious beak/bite) pecks at Riddick's fingers. However, after 5(?) bites, the fingers are undamaged.

Miscellaneous 

Right before Dahl punches out Santana, it is evident that her charcoal gray "performance-T" has short capped sleeves with loose elastic, that fit high on her Deltoid muscle. They are so loose they cast a shadow. She punches Santana. Then moments later, as he is wiping blood off his nose and asking for help, the camera cuts to a static close-up of Dahl, just for a split second. She is now wearing a different, fresher performance-T. The cap sleeves are longer now, with more pronounced ribbed, elastic bands that fit below her Deltoid muscle. When the camera goes back to action shots, her sleeves are short again, and remain so for the entire scene.

Revealing mistakes 

We're lead to believe the power nodes for the two ships are different, both by dialog and in physical appearance. When Riddick spies on Vargas using Dahl's mirror, the nodes in the rack indicates that Vargas is on the wrong ship.
When Dahl readies her pistol, a Springfield XD Tactical, the chambered indicator is flush with the ejection port, indicating there is no round in the chamber.
When Riddick first grabs the tooth/claw at his chest you can see it is not solid.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Character error 

When asking Riddick about the events of Pitch Black, Johns mentions that the system has two suns. In that film, the system is shown with three suns.

Continuity 

Dahl shoots Riddick four times despite only having three tranquilizer bullets. The case is shown to be empty after she picks up the bullet to load for the third shot.
When loading the tracking rounds, Dahl has to move the sights on the rifle each time to clear the chamber and load the next round. Later, using the same rifle and the tranquilizer rounds she is able to eject and reload without moving the sights.

Plot holes 

When Vaako reveals that the world he'd visited as a young Necro was Furya, he does so by stating that the Furyan warrior had eyes just like Riddick's. However, all previous lore in this universe accepts that Riddick's eyes look the way they do because of a surgical procedure ("a surgical shine-job") - they are not a species/race trait.
