* 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.

** That also explains why Mendez, Saddler and everyone else bothers to speak to Leon in a heavily accented English: they thought he wouldn't understand if they spoke Spanish. As for Luis, he knew about the plan to kidnap Ashley, and when he met Leon he just put two and two together ("Americano, si?") and concluded that he was the US agent sent to rescue her. Or probably was just used to speaking with Ada...wait, and what about the two policemen that accompany Leon at the beginning?
*** No problem really, the Spanish police send two English-speaking officers to make things easier for him, a sensible thing to do. Leon may be able to read Spanish perfectly well but, regarding his pronunciation of "Luis" or "Hasta luego", he still needs to polish his pronunciation. The officers either wanted to practice their own English or did not expect a "pretty boy" like Leon to be able to know the language.

** In Darkside Chronicles, it is revealed that Leon´s mission with Krauser was in South America. This gives more credence to Leon having working knowledge in spanish.

** If you have noticed throughout the game, none of the other people infected with the dominant-strain Plaga have red eyes (Saddler, Salazar and Krauser). In Saddler's and Salazar's case, the irises have mutated into a different color (Saddler's are white and Salazar's are yellow) and Krauser maintained his blue eyes from before his infection. It could be the same thing with Mendez. Although, if it indeed was the blue eye that didn't turn and was meant to be the glass eye, it was probably a programming mistake.

* 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 is that [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies are slaves with no freewill of their own]]. Thus, making the entire townspeople and the Los Illuminadoes "zombie slaves" to Saddler.

* Compared to other games the humble knife gets a massive increase in usefulness against the various enemies you encounter. Then you realize that up until 4 most of the mooks you encounter are shambling corpses and unlikely to be concerned with even fatal wounds to anything other than their head. The villagers, zealots and soldiers and the other hand are all living humans and vulnerable to traumatic injury, like the kind committed with a knife.
** Parallel to this. Leon has become quite skilled in the use of the knife. So much that he does not even have to equip it as a separated item or put it in his inventory and he can start slashing just as quickly as he stops shooting. Adding the two points (enemies that react to pain and Leon having more skill with the knife), explains said massive increase in usefulness.
* Perhaps a throw back 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.
