* [[spoiler: Luther averting ''Afterlife'' opens with one of these: [[MagnificentBastard Wesker]] versus [[GodModeSue Alice]]. During the second and third films, Alice transformed from the BadassNormal she was in the first film to a full-blown GodModeSue (even BlackHoleSue by ''Extinction'') who could win a fistfight with the friggin' [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis Nemesis]], use PsychicPowers gained from bonding with the T-Virus, and [[SpotlightStealingSquad stole the spotlight]] from canon [[BadAss badasses]] Jill Valentine and Claire Redfield. She even [[spoiler:assembled [[MesACrowd a clone army]] developed by Umbrella to take on the company itself.]] So, what happens in ''Afterlife''? [[spoiler:The clone army strikes at Umbrella's Tokyo HQ, but Wesker manages to kill two of the clones, evacuate to a CoolPlane, leave the facility, and annihilate both the facility and the Alice clones with a nuclear bomb. The original Alice jumps him on the plane, but he catches her off guard and injects her with a serum that destroys the T-Virus (which removes her God Mode powers) before ''[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he kicks her ass from one end of the plane to the other]].'' Yes, you read that right: Wesker ''beat the Sue out of Alice.'']] And for everyone who wanted to see that moment? It. Was. '''''Glorious.'''''
** You have...probably made some mistakes with your story if your hero getting the everloving shit beaten out of them by the villain in a CurbstompBattle is considered an Awesome Moment worth celebrating as if it were the villain receiving the beating. Then again, [[spoiler:an AuthorsSavingThrow combined with a TakeThatScrappy]] was a definite step in the right direction for the series.

* ''Afterlife'' opens with one of these: [[MagnificentBastard Wesker]] versus [[GodModeSue Alice]]. Let's put this into context, shall we? Over the course of movies 2 and 3, Alice has gone from the BadassNormal she was in film 1 to a full-blown GodModeSue (even BlackHoleSue by the third film), who could win a fistfight with the friggin' [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis Nemesis]], had PsychicPowers that she got from the T-Virus, and constantly [[SpotlightStealingSquad stole the spotlight]] from canon [[BadAss badasses]] Jill Valentine and Claire Redfield. She even [[spoiler:assembled [[MesACrowd a clone army]] to take on Umbrella.]] So, what happens in film 4? [[spoiler:As the clones go into Umbrella's Tokyo HQ, Wesker guns down two clones, evacuates to a CoolPlane, leaves the facility and ''nukes'' the entire clone army. He's then jumped by the original Alice on the plane...and he proceeds to tell her that it's nice to finally meet her, catches her off guard and injects her with a serum that permanently removes her God Mode powers, and then ''[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown kicks her ass from one end of the plane to the other]].'' Yes, fans, Wesker literally ''beat the Sue out of Alice.'']] It. Was. '''''Glorious.'''''
** You know you've made some misteps in the franchise when your hero getting the everloving shit beaten out of her is considered the most awesome thing in the film.
*** Well, yes, but AuthorsSavingThrow + TakeThatScrappy = a definite step in the right direction.
* As further evidence that writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson is learning, Claire goes from doing... pretty much nothing in the third movie to having a legitimate Moment of Awesome of her own here, namely her fight against [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 the Executioner Majini]] in the prison's shower room. The fight ''tears the room apart'', and climaxes with Claire grabbing Alice's dropped sawed off shotgun, sliding toward the Executioner and shooting him point blank in the chest. True, [[spoiler:it only puts him down temporarily]], but it was still awesome
** Followed by Alice reawakening and the two pulling of DeadlyDodging to disarm the creature, and then proceeding to [[YourHeadAsplode blow his head off]] with the other shotgun
* Wesker headshotting an Alice clone while she was freefalling!
** And then coolly walking away from the explosion caused by the second Alice clone trying to invoke a TakingYouWithMe with only a few bruises
* Wesker's epic combination of BadassBoast and PreAssKickingOneLiner before utterly stomping the Redfield sibling duo:
-->'''Wesker:''' " Well isn't this one big family reunion? Chris and Claire Redfield, you've really become quite an inconvenience for me. "
-->'''Alice:''' " I told you I'd be bringing a few friends. "
-->'''Wesker:''' " ([[TheGlassesComeOff removes sunglasses]]) You should have brought more. "
* [[spoiler: Bennet]] grabs a nearby scalpel and stabs Alice in the her forearm with it. [[LodgedBladeRecycling Alice pulls it out and uses it to stab]] the BigBad in the forehead
** [[spoiler: Wesker is only inconvenienced for few seconds due to that injury]]
