* OvertookTheManga: The fourth S.D. Perry novel (''Underworld'') was set after the events of ''[=RE2=]'' and featured plot elements that diverged from what was revealed in later games. Perhaps the biggest offender is the original character "Trent", who is [[spoiler:the son of the scientist team who created the T-Virus and were murdered for it]] and who thusly serves as the ManBehindTheMan for ''all'' of the good guys (including Ada) out of his desire to bring Umbrella down, being quite effective at helping because [[spoiler:he's secretly working amongst the upper echelons of Umbrella]].

* ContinuitySnarl: Capcom's attempts to set at least four different games during the fall of Raccoon City leads to a lot of continuity errors about the shared locations. Specifically the Raccoon Police Department, which players visit in ''2'', ''3'', and ''File #2'' with critical differences each time. There is actually only a single genuine continuity error with the Police Department, that being the window that Nemesis breaks in RE3. It's not broken in RE2, although it takes place before RE3. The rest of the events from the games featuring the department fall in line with each other with no actual errors, from Outbreak to RE3, and then to RE2.

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Sure, B.O.W. (bio-organic weapon) [[XMeetsY combines]] FunWithAcronyms and NotUsingTheZWord, but apparently no one at Capcom realized that ''all'' bioweapons are organic -- at least until Umbrella starts weaponizing [[Franchise/StarTrek Vulcans]].

** It's worth noting that Wesker's evilness increases in direct proportion to his Britishness as the series goes on. Also rather interesting to note that in many of the later games, his voice has an uncanny resemblance to [[HarryPotter Severus]] [[AlanRickman Snape]].

* EqualOpportunityEvil: Umbrella has absolutely no issue hiring just about anyone for any position in their organization. They have hired scientists of multiple nationalities, male and female. They've even hired teens and ''pre-pubescent children'' and made them the heads of important bioweapons projects. It seems to Umbrella, the only thing about you that matters to them is how well you can serve the company.

* UpdatedRerelease: ''Resident Evil: Director's Cut'', ''[[ColonCancer Resident Evil: Director's Cut: Dual Shock Version]]'', ''Resident Evil 2: Dual Shock Version'', ''Resident Evil Code: Veronica X'', the [=GameCube=] remake of ''Resident Evil'', ''Resident Evil 4: {{Wii}} Edition'', ''Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD'', ''Resident Evil 4 HD'', and now ''Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection''. For a while there, it seemed it was Capcom's goal to release every game in the series for every platform available.
