However, they do not complain, seeing as they have other things to worry about, nor does the cold seem to effect them. In the Battle Game, though, during a certain point of Claire's game, after defeating all the zombies, if you walk back a few steps, she will do a special animation where she shivers.

''Resident Evil'' (known in Japan as ''Biohazard'') is a SurvivalHorror and science fiction video game series. It has since branched off to become a media franchise consisting of comic books, novelizations, a live action film series, and a variety of collectibles (including action figures, strategy guides and publications). Developed by Creator/{{Capcom}} and created by Creator/ShinjiMikami, the series has sold 34.5 million games as of February 27, 2008.

The premise of the original ''Resident Evil'' was that the Umbrella Corporation was conducting sinister experiments in a mansion outside of the [[TheMountainsOfIllinois "Midwestern"]] town of Raccoon City, and a team of SWAT-like police called the Special Tactics and Rescue Service, or S.T.A.R.S., stumbles onto it in an investigation of several cannibalistic murders. Further games expanded on this premise, and it has since become one of the most successful action-horror games series of all time in addition to [[TropeNamer coining the term]] survival horror. This also includes two CGI films, ''[[Anime/ResidentEvilDegeneration Degeneration]]'' and ''[[Anime/ResidentEvilDamnation Damnation]]'', set in the same universe as the games. The latest numbered installment, ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', was released on October 2012.

The movie franchise, starring Creator/MillaJovovich, is also moderately successful and has spawned six movies, with the most recent (and supposedly last) one, ''The Final Chapter'', to be released in 2017.
