* Why is there a noticeable drop in Rebecca Chambers' abilities between RE 0 and RE 1? When RE 0 starts, it's night. When it ends, it's dawn. When RE 1 starts, it's night again. When RE 1 ends, it's dawn. It's likely the poor girl was starting to suffer from serious starvation, thirst and sleep deprivation to such a degree that being functional at all takes a big kind of {{Badass}}.

*** It still counts for people playing the game for the first time, since it has unfortunate implications for his teammates. After all, if Brad's dead, where are everyone else? A file later reveals Chris, Jill, and Barry are in Europe dealing with Umbrella's HQ (this is then retconned bafflingly into just Chris and Barry to make way for ''Resident Evil 3''), but that still leaves us with our next question:
*Where's Rebecca? She's not mentioned in any files post ''Resident Evil'' until ''Resident Evil 2'' for the N64 added a file tying into the as-then unreleased (and planned for the N64) ''Resident Evil Zero'' which more or less summarizes that game. Still, this is just a port of the game outside the series proper (although the files are still canon, as they also allude to ''Code Veronica''), meaning the next ''mainline'' reference to Rebecca wouldn't come until ''Resident Evil 5'', a full ten years after the first game. Since only Chris, Jill, and Barry are mentioned in the supplementary files in Re2, one could be forgiven for assuming Jill's scenario is canon, and Rebecca either didn't survive the Mansion...or Chris wasn't around to meet her and she was left behind.
**Even though it's canon she survived the mansion (both in ''Resident Evil 5'' and ''Umbrella Chronicles'') there's no evidence she survived the destruction of Raccoon City, since she never linked up with Jill, Leon and Claire, the cast of ''Outbreak,'' or even the Echo Six squad (and further, she's not even on the Wolf Pack's shitlist, just Chris, Jill, and Barry again), meaning it would've been very possible for her to have been left behind ''again'' in Raccoon City. Talk about bad luck.

** He's also given up smoking recently. Think about it: he's carrying gum, which former smokers carry to ward off nicotine cravings, although this in and of itself isn't a sign. However, he immediately offers gum to Luis when he asks him for a smoke, a jump most people wouldn't make unless that's what they use gum for.

** RE 7: The decision to go back to the series' horror roots and remove most of the combat is justified by players taking the roles of civilians and none of the series' main protagonists.

* People tend to forget that Resident Evil is not only about zombies and never will only be about zombies. Why? The original title is "Biohazard". And what do biohazards do? They turn people into not only zombies but also monsters. Even animals like dogs as well as elephants can be infected. Of course, there's those deadly plants as well. And what do people do when facing such monsters? They fight for survival, something which is present in all Resident Evil games, especially Resident Evil 4, 5 & 6.

** And even if you're become an uncontrollable and insane abomination hellbent on destroying everything around you, in some cases they maintain their sentience - particularly the Ja'vo forces in ''6'', and implied with Mutated Deborah when she merely pushes Helena to the side to get her out of the way rather than kill her outright.

* With both ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' delving into the effects of viruses on more fortunate individuals alongside less fortunate ones, it becomes clear that those who are frightened or in fear [[BodyHorror become the abominations and monsters throughout the series, as well as zombies]] and the contamination can just spread from there. Those who are particularly vengeful or controlling mindsets and filled with at least some sort of acceptance for their infection gain some sort of monstrous factors while still maintaining their sentience. And those who can accept and come to terms with their situation altogether but maintain HeroicWillpower and a steadfast mindset in accepting both life and pain all the same can use the virus for good, thus Manuela's and [[spoiler: Piers']] more beneficial transformations compared the norm.

** Even though Leon B is the canon plot direction (where Ada doesn't fall to her "death"), this still can explain how she was able return to throw the rocket launcher to Claire in her B game.



* Taking into account AllThereInTheManual, it's clear why Leon kicks so much more ass in ''4'' than in ''2'': The reason he's late to his job in ''2'' is because he was up all night drinking -- so he spent the ZombieApocalypse ''hungover''. ''Videogame/ResidentEvil4'' is what happens when Leon's sober and ready -- and he's more agile, more physical, and stronger all around.
