* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: While most of the weapons used on-screen are accurately portrayed and rendered, the U.S. Marines deployed to counter the outbreak, [[spoiler:and later to neutralize Curtis Miller]], are wearing U.S. Army ACU (Adaptive Combat Uniform) fatigues and equipment, as noted by the [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Resident_Evil:_Degeneration IMFDB]]. It should be noted that in the Japanese version, the responders are referred to as actually being US Army Rangers.
* ATeamFiring: Greg. In a mild variation, he has a fairly high hit rate. It's just that he's shooting, y'know, ''zombies''. He even holds the barrel shroud in an overhand grip to reduce climb. It should be noted, though, that [[WhatAnIdiot he keeps doing this]] even after Leon tells him to aim for the head. ''Twice''. It's at least justified in context. The SRT isn't trained for dealing with T-virus outbreaks, and years of training for center of mass shots and muscle memory simply can't be overcome in a few minutes. Even after coming face to face with the fact that the hostiles aren't still alive Greg and Angela still have trouble coming to terms with it.
** There may be a bit of TruthInTelevision here. RealLife soldiers are trained to shoot for the center of mass rather than the head. It is also acceptable to miss an awful lot of your shots for the sake of suppressing fire. The obvious problem is that these tactics don't work well against zombies.

it.



** Refreshingly averted with two of the civilians at the airport, namely Senator Davis's secretary and the airport's VIP lounge hostess. They are civilians with no weapons and no kind of training whatsoever, but they survive the airport outbreak unscathed, mostly because they pretty much followed every instruction to the letter, sticking close to the group and avoiding zombies.

The film is set in 2005, seven years after the [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis destruction]] of [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2 Raccoon City]], one year after the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', and brings back the main characters of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''. Claire Redfield, after the events of ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica]]'', has decided she isn't suited for actively combating Umbrella and its bioweapons, instead joining a non-government organization known as "Terra Save", which both opposes bioweaponry and conducts search and rescue of chemical and bioterrorist attacks. She goes to an airport to chaperone a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything little girl with missing parents]] when zombies suddenly infest the terminal. With only a few suvivors, the military calls in an expert on these kind of situations to stage a rescue mission: [[GenreSavvy Leon S. Kennedy]]. HilarityEnsues. Then [[FromBadToWorse not so much.]]

Then [[FromBadToWorse not so much.]]



* GenreSavvy: Leon and Claire, having survived multiple separate bio-outbreaks apiece, ''know'' what's going on and how to survive. If only their allies would listen to them.



** Angela and Greg both make rookie mistakes common to the "police/military official meets zombie" scenario, despite the presence and warning of [[GenreSavvy Leon]]. And unlike every other scenario where this happens, zombies are ''not'' some previously unseen phenomenon; their existence has been common knowledge for years by the time the movie takes place. While they weren't sure it was a T-virus to begin with, and knowledge about what really happened in Raccoon City is a little shakey at best, they still had Leon with them, and he gave them the lowdown on what to expect. While Angela simply settles with telling a zombie to stop and then kneecapping it when it doesn't listen, Greg decides to go Grade-A Gung-ho dumbass, entering the room and spraying everything in sight like the idiot he is. He's even surprised when one of the zombies, absolutely unaffected by his tactics, jumps at him and nearly takes a chunk out of him.

* {{Badass}}: Leon.



* ImprobableAimingSkills: Leon during the escape sequence in the lobby can take out zombies dozens of meters away with clear headshots armed only with his handgun, which doesn't have a scope. Then again, this ''is'' [[{{Badass}} Leon]] we're talking about, so it kinda comes with the package.
