How about Maleficent's horns?
And didn't Regina say (S 1 or 2) something about bringing people to Storybrooke she NEEDED. That's always irked me because why would she need Pongo or Grumpy over say the White Rabbit, or idk... Jafar?
Also, what about how confident Rumple was about bringing Maleficent back from the dead, but he can't bring Bae back? This just doesn't make sense.
Also, how Rumple basically shrugged off the fact that Regina locked up Belle for 28 years, but the straw that broke the camel's back was Regina showing him a false picture of the author's door... Priorities aren't very straight there.
Also, what the hell happened to the magical coal mine thing that apparently had remnants of The Enchanted Forest UNDER Storybrooke? That didn't go anywhere...
I have more when I think about them...
a) It's a horned helmet. People do change their clothes, including headwear.
b) I think she was referring to the deceased (i.e.: not bringing Whale's brother but bringing Daniel and possibly Henry Sr.)
b) Because she wasn't dead to begin with: the failsafe protection spell kept her spirit bound to her remains.
c) It had Snow White's glass coffin, which they just didn't show on screen last time we went down there.

How about the fact that there's 3 Ursulas (Gold, Green, Regina) but a few things are not clear (or consistent):
a) Which one is the Ursula in The Little Mermaid? (Not vital since Once changes everything, see more below...)
b) How is the Green one a villain/Queen of Darkness at all anyway? She didn't ruin Ariel's life, Regina did.
c) Why did the Green one greet Hook so casually when she came into Storybrooke? He basically took her happy ending...shouldn't she have threatened him or SOMETHING?? Actor's motivation was wrong there.
d) Where's the Gold one at?
Also, how about the fact that the show has already referenced authors and their work, and movies, (Mulan, Walt, Thoreau, etc) yet...:
a) Ariel's arc just developed last season, instead of being a backstory.
b) I'm still confused about Cinderella's arc... where Rumple basically kills her Fairy Godmother. No wonder they haven't touched on Cinderella further, they probably know they screwed that one up.
a) Goddess-Ursula gave merepeople legs for one day. Regina-Ursula screwed Ariel over.
b) I agree that we've seen less viallainous heroes over here, but she's been around for a couple hundred years and she might have very well wreaked havoc in that time. Off-screen, unfortunately. :/
c) As I said, she's been around for a couple hundred years, plus thirty years on her own in the Land Without Magic: I guess that's more than enough time to get over it… until Hook opened the wound anew which pissed her off.
d) In the sea minding her own business? Being a goddess, I guess she's not very prone to manifest herself, unless people (i.e.: Regina) cross her.
The others don't seem much of a continuity issue to me.
