* When people think of the word "zombie", they usually think "undead creatures that feasts on the flesh of the living". The most common complaint is that ''4'' doesn't have flesh-eating zombies, but rather parasite-infected people. The term itself is OlderThanTheyThink because another usage of the word (indeed, the ''original'' usage) is that [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies are slaves with no free will of their own]]. Thus, making the entire townspeople and the Los Illuminadoes "zombie slaves" to Saddler.

** Gameplay-wise, the Villager Ganados are less resilient than the Zealots in a number of ways. They're just commoners, involuntary victims of infection, and aren't as used to creating heavy-duty traps like the Zealots or Militia, instead preferring to ambush Leon with sheer numbers and weaponry, which in itself is rudimentary at best (pitchforks, dynamite, etc). Meanwhile, the Zealots and Militia Ganados are far more resistant to damage and are physically stronger, probably having been trained by Saddler to handle more complex tasks and battles. Logically, Leon would save the more dangerous, damaging moves to the enemies that deserve it.

* J.J., the gatling gunner, aims by starting firing to one side of Leon, then "walking" the bullets onto his target. J.J. has an eyepatch, which means no binocular vision, which means no 3D depth perception. With Aim Down Sights, this wouldn't affect accuracy, but since the gatling gun is offset from his vision, he's forced into the makeshift procedure listed above.

* Why does the Merchant help Leon, despite showing obvious signs of Plagas control (pale skin, glowing red eyes at night)? Saddler mentions that a Plagas reflects the consciousness of its host. So through either heroism or greed, the Merchant's original consciousness is influencing the Plagas to rebel!

** While now regarded as non canon, Leon A scenario from Resident Evil 2 shows she has past form for it.

** Except that you will run into villager ganados after that and then meet the significantly tougher mercenary ganandos later on, and he won't suplex them either.

* Speaking of the scene where Leon fought Ada and won by using his knife? He dropped the magazine, then Ada uses a gadget, recovers her pistol but leaves the magazine. [[FridgeLogic Why is there no ammo to pickup then?]] Because Ada wouldn't kill Leon and probably has enough knowledge of guns to know how easy it would be to [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace accidentally pull the trigger]] should he not give into intimidation and fight back, something he would be likely to do. So she left the gun unloaded to avoid [[DefiedTrope accidentally shooting Leon]].

* Perhaps a throwback to the earlier games, but look at Krauser when you defeat him as Leon. No blood puddle. Then who shows up to fight Ada in her scenario? Krauser. And what happens when Ada defeats him? Blood puddle. In the first few games, zombies and other creatures weren't dead until there was a blood puddle, so this may explain why Krauser wasn't dead. There was no puddle.

** I'll do you one better; "Zombie" means "a corpse [[DemonicPossession possessed by a serpent-demon]]" in Voodoo mythology; created for the use of a Bokor (the proper name for a "[[EvilSorceror witch-doctor]]"). Certain Plagas organisms look very snake-like; and Saddler definitely has an "evil wizard" vibe that nicely compliments his SinisterMinister schtick.

** This very well may also just be why you never find Regenerators and Iron Maidens around other enemies; given that they seem to have lost sapience, it's entirely possible that they're quite prone to cannibalism to fuel that metabolism and thus are as much of a danger to the Ganados as they are to Leon. This would also explain why you find multiple Iron Maidens in the trash disposal, as it's entirely reasonable to assume that they became more trouble than they're worth because of this.
