Character error 

For such a neat freak, Wasabi's safety precautions around his laser slicing device in the lab are shockingly weak. Anyone walking through it (which Hiro was about to do) would suffer an instant and incredibly gruesome death, and one could easily lose a finger or a limb by being too careless, yet the only safety precaution is yellow tape on the floor.

The logo for "Project Sparrow" is quite clearly a member of the Apodidae family, probably a swift or swallow.

When Callaghan first meets Hiro, he is seen wearing a blue shirt, but when he asks Hiro for is robot, we can see his sleeve is red in color. When we see a full shot of Callaghan later, his shirt and sleeves are blue again.

In the last shot showing Tadashi's San Fransokyo Ninja cap, the colors of the cap logo "SF" and the "N" are reversed from what was shown earlier in the movie.

During the car chase, the headlights are on, but the tail lights are not (evident when the brakes are applied). A few moments later, the tail lights are on.

When Honey meets Hiro, she has earbuds in her ears. She starts talking to Hiro, pulls them out of her ears, and they dangle out of her shirt. The dangling earbuds then disappear in the close-up shot of her and Hiro.

When Hiro and Baymax are in the portal, there are objects floating in zero-gravity. However, Hiro and Baymax are not affected by the lack of gravity and both are pulled downwards.

When we see Hiro's room for the first time, we can see 2 figures on the top of his computer. However, in the shot right after Tadashi's death, the top of his computer is bare. Then, after Hiro and Baymax return from the police station, the 2 figures are on the computer again.

When Tadashi rescues Hiro from the bot fight, Hiro puts Megabot between him and Tadashi on the scooter. You can see Megabot's face is red briefly. When Tadashi jumps the scooter and Hiro looks at his reflection, Megabot's face is yellow. A moment later when Tadashi and Hiro are talking, you can see that Megabot's face is red again.

When Hiro visits Tadashi's school Go Go enters on her bike and hangs it up, removes a magnetic wheel for a moment, and then tosses it back. As it locks into position it slowly rotates clockwise, but when the scene cuts to a closeup of Hiro looking at it the wheel is rotating in the opposite direction.

When the vehicle speedily crashes into the ocean, Hiro's seat belt is jammed. At the bed of the ocean, the viewers are shown Hiro attempting to unlock his seat belt. When Baymax surfaces with the rest of the characters, Hiro is no longer restrained by his seat belt without explanation.

When Hiro is betting at the bot fight, we can see he puts a messy pile of money on the betting dish. However, when he is taking the money in the end, the messy pile of money he put earlier is gone.

Baymax gives Hiro a lollipop, but it is only visible in Hiro's mouth once before it just disappears.

Factual errors 

When Baymax scans Hiro the second time, he states that he has no injuries and that the only diagnosis was "puberty". However, if you look at the blood pressure, it is 113/90 which is considered hypertension (high diastolic blood pressure). Anyone with healthcare knowledge would recognize this as a problem.

The "District 51" arcade game in Fred's room (based on the arcade game "Area 51") is showing a flashing "Game Over" screen every time it shows up. Almost all actual arcade games only display "Game Over" at the end of a game, shortly followed by "attract mode" when the game is trying to get more people to play it. It would be exceedingly strange for an arcade game to display "Game Over" and nothing else for so long.

The villain's mask is referred to as a Kabuki mask, but it is classical Japanese No theatre that features actors in wooden masks. In Kabuki there aren't any masked actors, instead the actors' faces are painted in a stylized form.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Hiro first meets everyone at the college, Honey says her ball of carbide weighs 400 pounds. In reality, a ball of carbide measuring 36" in diameter (judging size from the film) would weigh over 14,000 pounds. This is not necessarily a goof, as it is not stated that the ball of carbide is solid.

When Hiro and Baymax are at the police office, you can see Baymax putting three pieces of tape on on each arm and you only see him take 6 pieces of tape. Yet, when the frame switches, he has a lot more pieces of tape on his hands, arms, and belly. However, an unknown amount of time took place before in that scene, and Baymax could have applied tape then.

Plot holes 

After encountering Yokai, Baymax states that he scans the healthcare needs of anyone he meets and therefore has noted the bio-metrics of the villain. Being created in Professor Callaghan's lab, Baymax would have certainly encountered the Professor previously and should have been able to see immediately that the two had identical bio-metrics.

What type of item gets sucked in to the portal or not is very inconsistent. Some items are sucked in with great force while similar items in the same shot are not affected. The team hides behind a piece of debris that doesn't seem different from the debris being sucked in to the portal, and not only is it motionless but it seems to shield them from the effects of the portal. They can behave normally without any noticeable force acting on them. Earlier, Hiro was not shielded from the effects of the portal even though he was indoors (he was drawn up against the ceiling by the upward force) and much farther away from the portal.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

During his farewell to Baymax, a tear is seen sliding down Hiro's cheek. Tears cannot form in zero-gravity, which the free-floating debris implies exists inside the portal, since there is no gravitational pull there to act upon them.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Even though (as we learn later) Baymax removes Tadashi's care card and places it in his fist when he sacrifices himself for Hiro and Abigail, he is still functioning as if he has it in him right up to the end, for example by asking whether Hiro is satisfied with his care. However, there's a pause right before the rocket fist fires, when Baymax is off camera and Hiro looks away, a moment designed to cover the literal hand-off.

Plot holes 

The entirety of the final confrontation could have been avoided had Hiro used Baymax's scanner to track Callaghan before Krei's grand opening ceremony. The team discovers the truth about his daughter late at night, giving them plenty of time to track him down and apprehend him.
