* 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. And then, Umbrella sent in another unit to reopen the Hive immediately after the first one. When this unit's confronted 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. But that 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.

* JerkassHasAPoint: The Red Queen orders Alice to kill the infected Rain in exchange for opening a locked door, and while there is an Anti-Virus, it's not guaranteed to work. Rain is visibly extremelly sick from her wounds and could turn into a zombie at any rate, and considering what happens later, you can't really blame the Red Queen for doing this.

* 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.]]
