* MirrorScare: Both played straight and averted. In the advanced mode in the Director's Cut version, looking in the mirror in the bathroom causes a zombie to sneak up behind the character. In the REmake, reflections are almost the only way to see a monster in Invisible Enemy mode.

* DecapitationRequired: In the [=REmake=], zombies that are killed can come back to life as a [[DemonicSpiders Crimson Head]], which run faster, hit harder, and can take more punishment before dying for good. Lighting a zombie's body on fire (whether by the Lighter or from the flame rounds in the Grenade Launcher) will prevent its resurrection, but blowing the head off is also the other requirement if fire is not available.

* OffWithHisHead: Hunters in the original game can [[OneHitKill slice your head off in a single stroke]] and Rebecca can suffer the same fate if she is not rescued in time. The [=REmake=] changes this for a SlashedThroat instead.

* ConvenientlyInterruptedDocument: The letter written by Martin Crackhorn is normally missing its top half. Subverted if you find the letter quickly enough, as it will still be intact and you can read the first half to find out [[spoiler:that the author couldn't meet with the note's intended recipient because a "guy in sunglasses" forbade it]].

** The ''[[UpdatedRerelease Director's Cut]]'' contains many improvements over the original 1996 version. However, despite what the subtitle implies, it still retains all the censorship of the earlier version.

** The intro cut scene was heavily censored and altered by taking out scenes with blood in the Western releases. The PC version, some PAL releases of ''Director's Cut'', and some copies of the North American Saturn version contained the original FMV. Notably, Chris' intro and ending were altered, both which originally has him [[SmokingIsCool lighting a cigarette]]. The Japanese version, however, did have the uncut FMV albeit in black-and-white to hide the amount of blood and gore.

** In REmake, the map for the Guard House is pinned over a hole in the wall that the character will take note of. Said hole happens to be right next to the giant hornet's nest. It's best that you don't examine that hole.

* SelfDestructMechanism: The mansion is rigged to explode in order to either prevent a major bio-hazard outbreak or destroy evidence. Naturally, this is triggered at the game's end.

* WorstAid: When Rebecca offers to treat Chris's wounds in the ''[=REmake=]'', the cut scene basically consists of her looking at Chris's arm, a brief blackout, and then her telling him he's all better now.

** The first gameplay trailers for the ''[=REmake=]'' ended with a Hunter beheading your character just like they can in the 1996 original. This was censored out in the final version and they kill your character via a SlashedThroat instead. This change is present in all versions of the ''[=REmake=]'', and is speculated to have been made due to the Japanese CERO rating guidelines becoming stricter.
** [[AllThereInTheManual A Japanese-only book]] about the process of remaking the game reveals that they had to change certain staircase camera angles in order to keep players from looking up Jill's skirt while she was wearing her ''[=RE3=]'' costume. When faced with the unavoidable water reflections, they outright gave her black underwear.

* DescendingCeiling: The origin of the immortal "Jill Sandwich" quote. Jill can grab the shotgun and escape with Barry's help, whereas Chris (who has no backup up to this point) will have to replace the shotgun with a broken replica, ''Raiders of the Lost Ark''-style.

** Clearing the campaign ends with a picture of Jill or Chris continuing with their normal lives after the Mansion Incident along with the player's accumulated play time and total number of saves. Jill is shown relaxing in her apartment with her hair down, while Chris is watching a news report about Umbrella on a giant screen in the city.

* FacialHorror: Lisa stitched together the faces of her assorted victims, wearing them like as a mask. In later playthroughs, you do get a brief peek at her real face. [[http://www.crimson-head.com/lisatrevor.htm This fansite article]] has extracted renders of her model, including versions without the mask of faces.

* FauxActionGirl: Rebecca, in both the original version and ''[=REmake=]''. Although the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil0'' justify it in the ''[=REmake=]'': she's pretty much wiped out by the time Chris finds her.

** The HD Remaster even included an online leaderboard for showing everybody's fastest completion times. Unfortunately, the sheer number of people using mods to keep the timer at absolute zero means that it's nothing but a wall of people tied for "first place" with a completion time of absolute zero.
