* ChivalrousPervert: A minor example. He flirts with Jill for a brief moment after they first meet, but he keeps the relationship professional afterwards. His partner, Doug, teases Jill a bit more with his flirting, though he's likely just goofing around as a part of his personality.

PressXToNotDie.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: You can only kill one of these things by shooting it in its head (less effective) or by going for the soft, fleshy underbelly of its insect-like abdomen. Bullets will just bounce off of its armored carapace otherwise.

Added DiffLines:

[[/folder]]

[[folder: B.O.Ws]]
Though Majini make up the bulk of the enemies you face in this game, Tricell has a few artificially engineered monsters to face off against as well.

For the tropes pertaining to the Majini, see the "Las Plagas and Hosts" folder in Characters/ResidentEvil4.

!!Popokarimu
A genetically engineered hybrid of a giant bat and an insect, created by Tricell as a conventional B.O.W. Chris and Sheva fight two of these creatures, one prior to entering some caves, one within the ancient city of the Ndipaya tribe.

* AdvancingBossOfDoom: If you try to flee the second Popokarimu, it will chase you up the stairs, and you need to PressXNotToDie.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: You can only kill one of these things by shooting it in its head (less effective) or by
* BewareMyStingerTail: They can bodyslam, sweep, pincer-bite and launch SuperSpit from their tail.
* GiantFlyer: A flying bat-bug thing the size of a large car.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Half bat, half insect, looking like a giant, deformed bat with a grub replacing its lower body.
* SuperSpit: They spray gouts of HollywoodAcid from their tail.

!!Uroboros
Three different mutants that Chris and Sheva encounter art different points of the game; Test Subject, Mkono and Aheri, but all are fundamentally identical where it matters. All are humans infected with the Uroboros virus, but unable to control themselves after the infection, resulting in them transforming into out-of-control mindless abominations.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Those big vaguely glowing yellow-orange blobs are their "cores". Only by shooting them will you stand a chance of putting these things down.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Comparing Aheri to the ship you fight it on suggests it's about seventy feet tall, one of the biggest monsters in the entire series.
* BlobMonster: They have certain similarities to this. They can absorb flesh and use that to grow bigger and bigger, which is how Aheri managed to get so huge.
* BodyHorror: Phase one of Uroboros infection; you are eaten alive from the inside out by writhing, pulsating black worm-like shapes which knot together into once larger whole. It gets worse from there.
* KillItWithFire: The best way to get rid of an Uroboros is to burn it to pieces. You can instantly dispatch the Test Subject by trapping it in an incinerator, you can kill Mkono more easily with a flamethrower provided for just such a situation, and you can kill Aheri with a satellite laser.
* WasOnceAMan: Every Uroboros was originally a single human who was infected with a virus. You really, ''really'' can't tell anymore.
* WormThatWalks: Uroboros have this sort of look, seemingly being made of countless black worms all swarming together.

!!Reaper
Common African household cockroaches accidentally exposed to Uroboros, the Reapers demonstrate that virus' extreme potential for deadly mutation, having transformed into killing machines.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Literally; they grow back their limbs/head and their torso is armor-plated. Only attacking the swollen white organ-sacks sprouting from their shoulders and chest will kill them.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: Cockroaches mutated into a bipedal, man-sized format.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Of the "blade for a hand" variety. Each arm is serrated scythe-blade.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: It will take a ''lot'' of damage, but, if you continually blow off their head and arms, they will eventually die from the strain of growing them back.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: As said, these things used to be ''cockroaches''. You know, the creepy-crawly bugs that run away and hide when you flick the lights on? Now, they're some of the most lethal killing machines in the Resident Evil universe.
* GlassCannon: They actually can't take that much damage before dying... but, they will ''end you'' if you're not careful.
* HealingFactor: They can regenerate their head and arms, which is why you gotta aim for their organ sacks.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: They have four arms, all of them giant reaping sickle-claws.
* OneHitKill: Their primary attack, if they have all four limbs, is to grab you and them ''disembowel you''.

* ActionGirl
* BadassNormal

to:

* ActionGirl
ActionGirl: She can and will kick just as much ass as Chris does.
* BadassNormalBadassNormal: She's just a girl with a gun, she doesn't even have the experience fighting [=B.O.Ws=] that Chris does, and yet she doesn't back down for a second as she faces deformed psychopathic killers and horrible mutations.



* ButNotTooBlack

to:

* ButNotTooBlackButNotTooBlack: Despite being a native African, she's surprisingly pale-skinned, as her picture here shows. It's possible she's a "White African" (a "White" by race but "African" by nationality) or that she's mixed-race and favors her lighter-skinned parent.



* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her parents and village worked for an Umbrella facility as menial laborers. When she was a child, Umbrella used the workers for experimentation; her parents died and she was taken in by her uncle, who lived in poverty with his seven children. Unable to feed herself and convinced her parents were still alive, she ran away, but almost died wandering the savanna. She was rescued by anti-government guerrilla fighters, who explained how Umbrella had destroyed her village and killed all the survivors when she was done, with the help of the government, so she joined with them to make Umbrella and the government pay. When she was a teenager, she found out that her "friends" were actually going to buy bio-weapons from Umbrella to overthrow the government, which was all they really cared about, so she helped sabotage the deal. For this, she ended up being taken to America and adopted, after which she eventually joined the BSAA and returned to her native country to continue her quest.

* NonActionBigBad: Par excellence. All the evil that Umbrella inflicts can be laid at his feet, yet he never actually does anything on his own; he just gives orders from behind a cushy desk, far, far away from all the blood and tears.

He's reduced to being confined to wheelchair and life support system three years before ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' due to his old age.
