** This is also the reason she becomes so attached and protective of Leon ever since [[TakingTheBullet he took a bullet in the shoulder for her]] in [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2 Raccoon]] [[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles City.]]
* BerserkButton: As if it shouldn't need to be said, but there's putting Leon in harm's way (just watch her body language when Wesker insists upon having him executed in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 4]]''), crossing one too many [[MoralEventHorizon Moral Event Horizons]], and [[spoiler:framing her]] (the latter two evident in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 6]]'').

* BeenThereShapedHistory: In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', she's responsible for the way some of the puzzles are orchestrated [[spoiler:(such as the ringing of the church bells that placated the Ganados and closed the gates to Ashley at the beginning of the game, and how she singlehandedly toppled Saddler's military firepower mentioned in a file).]] This trend returns in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' wherein she causes even more events for the central protagonists [[spoiler:such as the bolted gates Jake and Sherry come across in China, how she's the one who knocked Ubistvo off the train and it landed in front of the the duo, or why the passcode-carrying goons in Chris and Piers' campaign are dead.)]]

* ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth: Her signature red dress in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 4]]'' is adorned with golden butterflies and one is present on the outfit she wears in "Assignment: Ada/Ada The Spy" of the same game. They represent her [[RuleOfSymbolism symbolic death from the events of ''2'' and her epilogue in ''3'' and rebirth by the time of ''4''.]]

* CombatStilettos: From ''4'' onwards. This was actually [[AvertedTrope averted]] in ''2'' wherein she wore flat shoes. This outfit was updated in ''4'' which included red heels that also features in ''Umbrella Chronicles'', ''Darkside Chronicles'', and ''Operation: Raccoon City'' (which, strangely enough, replaces the heels with boots, making this another aversion.)

* CrazyPrepared:
** In ''[[Anime/ResidentEvilDamnation Damnation]]'', she is captured by the bad guys and suspended from the ceiling by her wrists... only to reveal a hidden blade inside one of her high heels that she had ready for just such an occasion.
** In ''6'', she anticipates that [[spoiler:Simmons]] will come back for more and leaves behind a rocket launcher for Leon and Helena to finish him off.



** Subverted ''4''. There she's captured by Mendez and his crew and nearly used as a ritual sacrifice... only to come to just in time, easily dodge the [[AnAxeToGrind ax]], and kick their asses. Then she's captured by Saddler and [[UnwillingSuspension suspended by a rope]]. She only escapes with Leon's help.

* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Her evening dress in ''4''. Also in ''6'', where her alternate costumes are a white and gold qipao.

* TheGump: In ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 Resident Evil 4]]'', she's responsible for the way some of the puzzles are orchestrated [[spoiler:(such as the ringing of the church bells that placated the Ganados and closed the gates to Ashley at the beginning of the game, and how she singlehandedly toppled Saddler's military firepower mentioned in a file).]] This trend returns in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 Resident Evil 6]]'' wherein she causes even more events for the central protagonists [[spoiler:such as the bolted gates Jake and Sherry come across in China, how she's the one who knocked Ubistvo off the train and it landed in front of the the duo, or why the passcode-carrying goons in Chris and Piers' campaign are dead.)]]
* GrapplingHookPistol: It's either called this, [[ShoutOut or a Hookshot.]] It's pretty much become a signature tool of hers since the fourth game.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Seriously, nobody knows whose side she's on! It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 6]].

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: In Leon's B scenario and its ''Darkside Chronicles'' recreation, Ada gets slammed against the power generator pretty hard by Mr. X. And it in fact appears that [[HesDeadJim She's dead, Leon]]. But she's back up to throw a Rocket Launcher to Leon during the battle with his final form. It's better than Leon's A scenario, though, where Ada falls down a BottomlessPit and ''still'' shows up to give Claire the rocket launcher.

* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known By Their]] StageName: It's hinted in her [[http://residentevil.wikia.com/File:Resident_Evil_3_Epilogue_7_Ada_Wong.jpg epilogue]] in ''Resident Evil 3'' that "Ada Wong" is not her true name, as she appears to be [[ThatManIsDead casting off the name/identity]] after the events of ''2''. However, she is still using the name in subsequent games, raising the question of the whether the epilogue was canon. [[spoiler:[[AllThereInTheManual Files]] in ''6'' indicate that "Ada Wong" is indeed a pseudonym, and that her true name is still a mystery.]]

*** As noted above, [[spoiler:she also looks after Sherry Birkin and Jake Muller (both of who, especially Sherry, would very most likely be dead if not for her interventions; Ada even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it) [[RecurringBoss during Sherry's and Jake's second (and what marks Ada's umpteenth) encounter with Ubistvo.]]]]

* [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bitch]]: Partially. In ''Darkside Chronicles'', she primarily thanks Leon for saving her a few bullets instead of saving her life from a Cerberus ready to maul her when she wasn't looking. She shows more gratitude later on when Leon takes a bullet for her.

He even has a special reload animation when he wears the costume while equipped with the Chicago Typewriter. His pose in the status menu also changes.

* WasOnceAMan: It was never really made clear where lickers came from in the second game, with the implication that they might have been a B.O.W, like the Hunter. Later games eventually revealed that lickers mutate from ordinary zombies.

** Slightly averted with Licker Betas as they can sexually reproduce, so technically not all of them were once human.

* GenreSavvy[=/=]UnderestimatingBadassery: Inverted on the underestimation part; in ''Darkside Chronicles'' Annette was fully aware of how capable Ada was, how ruthless she was when it comes to retrieving the G-virus, and warned Leon and Claire about her. Of course, [[TheDulcineaEffect Leon didn't believe her.]]
* [[GoodParents Good Mother]]: Despite the amount of focus she placed into her work, it was evident that her daughter was her first priority as she gives Claire all of the needed information to create an antidote for her.

* GenreSavvy: Once the [[ExpospeakGag fecal matter strikes the oscillating rotational device]], Ben immediately locks himself up along with the key and refuses to leave.
** DeathByGenreSavviness: ...It ''was'' a pretty good idea, until it kept him trapped when a mutated William Birkin came along and ripped open the door. Not like it would've mattered as even if William never came across him, he would've died via the missile explosion as seen in ''3''.



* GenreSavvy: He's infected and predicts Claire [[note]]Or Leon, but canonically Claire finds him.[[/note]] will probably come back looking for him, so he bars himself in so he won't be able to attack her or anyone else when he turns. [[spoiler:He's completely right, down to where she finds her way back in anyways, but she puts him down easily, and it's still unusually sensible behavior for a survivor in a ZombieApocalypse.]]

* PowerLimiter: His trenchcoat isn't just to make him imposing; it locks him into a more humanoid shape than the Tyrants before him and slows him down. That still doesn't stop him from absolutely ''wrecking'' your character in a couple of hits, and if he loses it (like, say, after falling into a vat of molten iron), he [[OneWingedAngel grows massive claws and gets about four times as fast when * PunchedAcrossTheRoom: Get in reach, and he will knock you clear across the room with one powerful blow.
