** The Neptune can just be electrocuted instead of fought.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The original [=PlayStation=] version is notorious for its bad translation and Z-grade acting (both, in the live action FMV and in the actual game's voice acting). Subsequent games, and the ''[=REmake=]'', toned this down, mainly due to better budgets. Some lines actually become iconic and were kept as continuity nods. What's more ironic about this is that, apparently, they didn't have someone on-staff for the original game to provide a proper translation. They just wrote the dialogue in Japanese and translated it into English as best as they could. Adding to the irony was that the game used English voice actors throughout the game, and yet, the voice actors read from a script that obviously had improper English. Supposedly, the English voice actors were given voice directions by a voice director who didn't speak English and was more concerned about the intonation of words rather than their actual meaning (which is why many lines are delivered with odd emphasis on certain words).

** In the ''[=REmake=]'', The radio from the original becomes unused. Hacking it in and checking the description gives out the message "It hasn't been used"



** Chris, Jill, Barry and Rebecca all survive the Mansion Incident. This is 100% accepted canon in the sequels. However, in every iteration of ''[=RE1=]'' available (the original, the ''Director's Cut'', ''[=REmake=]'', ''Deadly Silence'', the ''[=RE1=]'' scenarios of ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles The Umbrella Chronicles]]'' and the HD remaster), it is impossible to have Barry and Rebecca in the scenario simultaneously, and Capcom has never offered a concrete explanation for what happened in their surviving aside from, "They just ''did''." A pachislot adaptation of the game exist that finally features all four of them together at least.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Yawn is described as being poisonous. Since it bit Richard and not the other way around, this would make it venomous.

* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: The Japanese version uses [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQk53jFSA-g Icy Gaze]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52mytd4pMts I Won't Let This End as a Dream...]] as the opening and ending theme, both sung by Fumitaka Fuchigami.

A pachislot adaptation of the game exist that finally features all four of them together at least. Funnily enough, having Rebecca die/disappear during the Mansion Incident would not have changed the following story at all, because she was [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome never mentioned again]] post-''[=RE2=]''. Barry cameos at the end of ''Resident Evil 3'' and is mentioned in that game's epilogue, and he is also a main character for ''Resident Evil: Revelations 2''.
*** [[TheBusCameBack She's finally making a return]], having appeared in a 2015 stage-play set before the events of ''[=RE6=]'' and is set to appear as one of the main characters in the third CGI ''RE'' movie, [[Anime/ResidentEvilVendetta Resident Evil: Vendetta]], which is due to be released in Summer 2017.
** A comic book adaptation of the game took a {{mind screw}} approach. During a recap with all four S.T.A.R.S. members present, Chris states that he found Jill in a cell in the Umbrella lab. When Jill tries to correct him, he cuts her off.

* YouFailBiologyForever: Multiple times the Yawn is described as poisonous. Since it bit Richard (and potentially Chris or Jill), and not the other way around, this would make it venomus.

** In the ''[=REmake=]'', if you attempt to enter the password [[spoiler:MOLE]] instead [[spoiler:CELL]] on the lab computer, you'll hear a couple of [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2 Tofu]] soundbites.

** When you encounter a fountain with hollows on its east and west sides that contain carvings of an eagle and wolf, respectively. By now, you've already obtained the Last Book Vol.1 and Vol.2 but have no clue what to do with them. It turns out that you have to examine them in the inventory screen and rotate it at the right angle to open them (something that no other puzzle in the game requires you to do), revealing the needed medals.

It turns out that you have to examine them in the inventory screen and rotate it at the right angle to open them (something that no other puzzle in the game requires you to do), revealing the needed medals. ''[=REmake=]'' makes it a little easier to guess the solution, given that, ''way earlier'', you had to check the back of a book to get the Sword Key.



** The {{multiple endings}} count towards this in the original version. Depending on your actions and where you explore, you could have your support character killed off as early as mid-game. For example, answering no to both of Barry's questions in the caves will get him killed by a Hunter shortly after you run into Enrico. There's another scene in the game where Jill gets trapped in a hole and Barry runs off telling you to wait until he comes back, which is exactly what you need to do in order to save him and get the good ending. There's one problem: the game lets you control Jill the very moment he leaves and the next thing you find is a secret passage to an unexplored area, and considering it takes a good while for him to show up again, there is no indication you should wait for him to come back.
