* [[OvertookTheManga Overtook The Games]]: The fourth S.D.

* GoodIsNotSoft: Most of the playable characters would qualify: they are either good decent people who just happen to be BadAss and are in law enforcement or the military, or normal people who are an example of RousseauWasRight and fully capable of surviving an outbreak, the main exceptions would be Ada (having a large role in ''4'', morally ambiguous and GoodIsNotSoft) and Alex who starts out as a mercenary.

* NumberedSequels / StoppedNumberingSequels: A weird combination. Completely 100% canon games which meaningfully advance the plot are numbered; subtitled games are spinoffs or one-offs that haven't received any follow-up. The exceptions to this rule thus far are ''Code: Veronica'' and ''Revelations''. The latter got a numbered sequel of its own.

The exceptions to this rule thus far are ''Code: Veronica'' and ''Revelations''. The latter got a numbered sequel of its own. The canon doesn't only extend to the numbered games (with ''Code: Veronica'' and the ''Revelations'' games), but to various side games as well. ''Gaiden'' and ''Operation Raccoon City'' are not canon, The ''Chronicles'' games are partly, and more or less the rest is 100% canon.



* PlotHole: Quarantining Raccoon City, to keep the virus inside its walls. Makes sense, until the moment you realize. "What about the crows infected with the T-Virus? Who are free to fly outside of the city at any time." Unless they put a giant dome over the city, the virus should have spread across the entire midwest.

Kinda justified with Raccoon City being mostly in the middle of nowhere and the infected crows focusing more on eating the survivors and zombies in the city, rather than flying away somewhere. Also the introduction of an antitode to the virus.



** Rebecca Chambers had, in canon, escaped from the mansion with the rest of the team in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'', but has not made any future appearances in the storyline (other than being playable in a mini-game for ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'') within the story and is never even talked about at all by the other characters who survived with her. She was the star of [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil0 her own game]], albeit a canon "prequel", but it was still made much later in the series.
