* Why on Earth did Umbrella drop a T- 00 (Mr. X) upon Leon (or Claire) [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill to pursue and kill them from the very beginning?]] Capcom tried to retcon this by saying it was an attempt to cover up the disaster. But the Tyrant's orders were already clear: Retrieve the G-Virus at all costs. Anything or anyone else, was irrelevant in the otherwise doomed city. Leon and Claire could not have possibly known Umbrella's involvement in the disaster to start with, indeed they were a little bit more preoccupied in ''surviving the whole nightmare''. As far as they were concerned, any few survivors discovered were effectively boned, about to be killed by the masses of zombies. The Tyrant should have ignored them, until they began to interfere with its mission later on.

** Well first off, Ben IS something of a coward, so he's probably not thinking that far ahead. But his plan is basically to sit it out for a short while till the military comes to clean up the whole mess. It's a short sighted, panicky plan yes. BUT Ben does have the key to his cell, so he can leave any time rather than being so stupid he locked himself up to die (Irony) Granted, I can't help but think that if the game was rendered today, we'd see a case of bottled water and foodstuffs stashed in the corner of the cell.

* Ben Bertolucci's brilliant plan is... to lock himself up in a cell whilst the rest of the city is consumed by the ZombieApocalypse? Okay, technically it keeps him away from the zombies, but what about dying of thirst or starvation?

** [[OccamsRazor Those weren't G-Virus samples the rats consumed at all]], but T-Virus samples that just happened to be in the case]]. Note the color of the spilled liquids (G was purple, T was green).

* In the [=ClaireA/LeonB=] scenario, [[spoiler:Sherry is implanted with embryos by her mutated father]]. It's established by a document Claire finds that if the embryos are not genetically compatible with the host, they'll [[ChestBurster chew their way out]] and grow into a G-Imago. If they ''are'' compatible, however, they slowly transform the host's cells, turning the host into a true G-Virus monster like William. So [[spoiler:the vaccine Claire gives to Sherry will stop hedsr from becoming an eyeball-covered monstrosity... but since it will stop the cellular infection, won't it just ''cause the embryos to chest burst?'']]

*** Wait, that would mean the G-Virus ''actually works'' for it's intended purpose. Miracles will never cease.

* WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay point this out: Leon never mentions his encounters with Mr. X to Claire. Though she never encounters the big guy (in the canon scenario), you would think that since they both have a radio, Leon would contact her and say "Claire watch out for a huge monster in a green coat" or something like that. The encounters with William Birkins (constantly changing) multiple forms are a bit more understandable due to Leon figuring it out in the files lying around the precinct and in Umbrella's Labs. Claire was outright told by Annette, but still, you think they would try to at least warn each other about their respective monsters or encounters with them.

*** Considering that there's at least one specific encounter with Mr. X depending on whether you're playing as Leon or Claire for Scenario B, they still could've had Mr. X appear in Scenario A for the first character's specific encounter, and have the rest happen as they do for the other character in Scenario B.

*** It's a weapons locker, it's probably full of weapons - and it would be just stupid for a single person to take a locker-full of guns with him. The rest is just gameplay and story segregation.


Added DiffLines:

**** Given the situation the city is in at that point, it's not weird for there to be weapons and ammunition lying around on the streets, for example, being spread around by survivors. It's not like storing heavy weaponry in a power station was standard practice for the city beforehand.
