Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Kato and Britt are being chased by the police, the police fires a gun into the window of the car. Britt pushes the bullet out of the window and a sound is played of the bullet bouncing on the ground .

This is wrong because they are in a chase for speeding, at that speed you would not hear the first bounce let alone the second or third.

The sound does not match up with what is happening around them.

When Chudnofsky is about to shoot Kato at point blank range his gas mask is raised off his face resting on his forehead. An instant later as he flies backwards it is covering his face. An instant later as he stands it is gone completely.

When Kato and Britt are fighting in the pool house, Britt tumbles over the knight and knocks over the wooden weapon in his hand. The wooden weapon falls on the couch behind Kato. The camera changes from Kato to Britt and when it changes back to Kato, the weapon is gone.

On the roof when Chudnofsky is telling Popeye about his new name "Bloodnofsky," there is a tree directly behind Popeye. When the camera position changes, the tree disappears, and then reappears later, several time.

When the Black Beauty is being chased by the police, Kato uses the car's weapons to slice open the police car body and front left tire, causing it to crash. However, when the police car flips and the front left tire is easily seen in front of the camera, the tire is intact.

Factual errors 

In the segment where Britt and Kato are in the buried car Kato sets off the rockets. This blows the dirt off the car and tosses the bulldozer to the side in one piece and allows them to escape. The TV show MythBusters tested this idea. The result was that both the bulldozer and the car were totally destroyed and anyone in the car would have been killed.

The car is shot full of holes and this allows it to be cut in half on the elevator. The TV show MythBusters tested this and proved that (1) no matter how many bullet holes were in the car it would not be cut in half, (2) the roof would crush down and not stay intact as it does in the film and (3) cars of that era were rear-wheel drive, not front wheel.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Some people think that when the Black Beauty's back half is cut off in the elevator, and Kato continues driving it by switching it to front wheel drive, Kato and The Green Hornet forgot that the gas tank is located in the back of the vehicle and as there is no room for a gas tank anywhere else in the car especially since it is stuffed full of weapons in the doors and engine compartment and it could not continue to drive without gas. This is not true for two reasons, firstly the TV show MythBusters proved that a car cut in half could run for a short period with the fuel in the gas line and secondly Seth Rogen said on MythBusters: Green Hornet Special that a secondary gas tank had been fitted under the hood of the car.

Revealing mistakes 

When Chudnofsky presses the detonator as he leaves Crystal Clear's office, the sign on the wall can be seen to explode before the main explosion comes through the wall (particularly obvious as the scene is in slow motion).
