These films shouldn't be confused with ''Anime/ResidentEvilDegeneration'',
''Anime/ResidentEvilDamnation'', and ''Anime/ResidentEvilVendetta''. ''Degeneration'', ''Damnation'', and ''Vendetta'' explicitly follow the canon of the games; these live-action films integrate parts of the video game canon, but follow their own unique canon.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Alice makes it through the entire ordeal without getting cut up or bruised. When she emerges from The Hive, she's merely wet. Illustrating how much this trope is in effect: Milla Jovovich talked about being covered in lesions and bruises after shooting the brief moment where Alice is dragged across the grille in the train. Rain also looks very good for someone who has been bitten by multiple zombies and only merely looks like she's got a bad hangover.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Mostly subverted. The team is told that the Red Queen has gone homicidal for no reason, but it is the Queen's job to contain possible outbreaks, which she did perfectly. True, she killed a couple hundred people, but that was required to keep the outbreak from escaping The Hive. And it's ''nothing'' to the destruction that follows in the sequels as a direct result of Umbrella breaking her quarantine. However, as soon as it's revealed she can speak wherever she wants and decides to only do so ''at the very last moment'' before they pull the plug on her, and that the only thing she can say is "''Please, don't turn me off. Get out!''" It's somewhat played straight. [[spoiler:The Queen's "return" in the fifth film has this trope played completely straight, though.]]

* NecessarilyEvil: The Red Queen qualifies big time. [[spoiler:Yes, she did murder the entire Umbrella research facility staff, but she was only following her main directive to prevent a T-Virus outbreak.]] Her actions are probably the most sensible out of anyone in the entire series when it comes to containing a T-Virus outbreak. Her actions are brutal, but effective [[spoiler:at least until Umbrella unseals the facility and lets all the zombies loose.]] [[spoiler:When the series hits the fifth film, however, she seems to have gone full-on evil.]]

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: These zombies exist because of science -- specifically, a virus. A cure exists, but doesn't have much reliability even when administered soon after infection. The T-Virus zombies move slow, and any head trauma (not just a shot to the head) will kill them; Alice kills two zombie dogs by kicking one in the head and smashing the other's head with a paperweight, while Rain kills a zombie by snapping her neck.

* StabTheSalad: The Red Queen computer demands that the remaining protagonists chop off Rain Ocampo's head (because she's infected with the T-Virus) before she'll let the rest of them go. Alice appears to agree. She raises up the axe, the music swells, and...Alice chops into the video monitor the Red Queen has been using to talk to them.

* TooDumbToLive: Each one of Umbrella's security units that show up onscreen are really dumb to the point they have made it very easy for the ZombieApocalypse to happen. One's unit didn't even bother to ask why the Red Queen had gone homicidal until it was too late. Later, Umbrella sends in another unit to reopen the Hive immediately after the first one. When this unit's confronts by Alice, who works for them and knows everything that happened down there, their knee-jerk reaction is to drug her and take her away for testing viral infection. This brings up a question: If they knew the reason why the Hive was locked away was because of the T-Virus, why did they even bother opening it up again? It's like they wanted to have a reason to open the Hive and bring forth TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* VillainBall: The Umbrella clean-up team sent to investigate The Hive reveal that the Red Queen has a timer running on the facility. The T-Virus broke loose and infected everything within the facility, so when the Queen's timer counts down to zero, all of The Hive's entrances will permanently seal shut. Nothing gets in or out. This seems pretty smart so far. [[IdiotBall Umbrella does not agree with this]]. Not only does the system have a built-in override, but the team sent to override the system contains five people. ''[[ZombieApocalypse Guess what happens when they override the system?]]''

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Despite the T-Virus being called a protean virus and mentioned as being capable of switching to airborne transmission, the characters never express concern that merely breathing the air could get them infected. The initial infection spread when a canister of the virus was shattered and the virus entered The Hive's air system, but once Alice and the strike team meet the zombies head-on, the virus has evaporated and bites seem to be the only way for anyone to actually become infected. The novelizations say the T-Virus has an airborne variant with a hot zone, and this is the initial deployment method, but the virus soon reverts to the non-airbourne variant (with all the people-eating that entails). The film hints at this when the Red Queen notes that the transmission method depends on environment, but doesn't say it outright.

** This is sort of nodded to, as Matt seems fixated on an air vent early in the film. There is no specific reason given as to why he spends 30 seconds staring at the vent while ignoring the rest of the team.
