** After the first couple murders, Wadsworth plans on locking up the remaining weapons so they can't be used to murder anyone else. This is all great in theory ... but he doesn't lock up the Candlestick or the Knife that have already been used. Just because they were used once to kill someone, it doesn't make them any less deadly to be used again.

Just because they were used once to kill someone, it doesn't make them any less deadly to be used again. Alternately, the killer in all three endings ''also'' never thinks about this, and has to steal the key from Wadsworth (or plan on breaking open the cupboard) instead of just picking up one of the previously used weapons.

* WhatAnIdiot: A point could be made for [[spoiler:Miss Scarlet in her ending as the murderer. Not so much for anything to do about miscounting the bullets, but that she made her case to extort secrets from the other guests at gun point with the threat of blackmail to keep them in line. Problem is, she then plans to kill Wadsworth on the spot ... with a gun that only has one bullet left. The moment she wasted her bullet on him and loses her immediate leverage, what was to stop any of the other guests from just grabbing her and subduing her?]]

* PlotHole: [[spoiler:In her murderer ending, Mrs. Scarlet plans on blackmailing all of the guests for government information, including Mrs. White just because her husband was a nuclear physicist. Ignoring the fact Mrs. White's husband is dead and (seeing as she's had 5 husbands and this was her second) has been for presumably a while, why would the wife of a nuclear physicist have access to any of his highly classified secrets regarding a secret fusion bomb?]]

* UnwinnableByInsanity: An incorrect accusation takes a player out of the game. This trope comes into play if every participant except one does this at which point a botched accusation must be avoided at all costs.

** There's a good deal of debate surrounding Mr. Green's actual sexuality. [[spoiler: In the third ending his last line is "I'm going home to sleep with my wife." A joke that he was straight all along, or is he just keeping up the facade now that other people are around?]] Though considering he outs himself, the latter might be unlikely.
** Wadsworth. [[spoiler: In the Scarlett and Peacock endings where he's working for the FBI is he deliberately making it harder on Boddy's victims and not protecting the accomplices out of some sense of justice? In the ending where he's Mr. Boddy is he behaving the way he does throughout the movie to torment his victims?]]

** Seeing the film again, one will notice Wadsworth's reaction to Mr. Green revealing his blackmail without letting Wadsworth out him. He's confused and checks the blackmail to see if Green's there, [[spoiler: the blackmail unfamiliar to him and possibly planted by the FBI.]]

** Wadsworth, the butler. In all three endings. [[spoiler: In the first two endings Wadsworth, actually an FBI agent, set up the entire scheme in order to implicate the killer in a conspiracy and take her down. In the third ending, Wadsworth is actually Mr. Boddy and used the guests to kill off the informants who gave him everything he used to blackmail them; with each of the guests now guilty of murder and his informants all dead, he then plans to extort even '''more''' blackmail money from them.]]
