* SocializationBonus: There are several moments where four of the player characters meet up and have to work together take down a huge monster. Since the game is co-op, you could have a group of two players meet another group of two for a temporary four player co-op mission. Since the player count for the game has all but died off, finding other players for the four player scenarios is downright impossible. Luckily, recruiting more players is optional and you can do the events by yourself or with your own friend instead of waiting on a few strangers.

* AdaptiveAbility: J'avo are supposed to mutate in response to how you've wounded them. They might grow a [[CombatTentacles big nasty tentacle arm]] or two, a [[SinisterScythe sickle-like arm]], turn one arm into a [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe bulletproof shield]], fall flat on their back and start releasing poison gas, grow a thorax with multiple limbs that enables them to WallCrawl, grow grasshopper-like legs that allow them to [[InASingleBound jump high]] and kick, grow moth-like wings under their abdomen, grow two caterpillar-like appendages that wrap themselves and [[ActionBomb explode]], or grow a pincer-like head. That's if they don't cocoon themselves in ooze and pop out as a big nasty monster. [[spoiler:This ability allows Piers to get a new arm when his is lost]].

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: While the viruses in ''Resident Evil'' have always been prime examples of ArtisticLicenseBiology, they always had consistent limitations and abilities. In comparison, the C-Virus has only a few restraints. When dispersed as a gas, it kills, period; living victims (and exposed corpses) who are exposed to a lethal concentration turn into zombies of several different types, some capable of mutation. When injected directly into the bloodstream of a living host, the virus turns said host into J'avo, violent sapient humanoids with a number of extra eyes, freakish strength, and the ability to mutate in horrific and unpredictable ways (from the growth of new appendages to a chrysalis that spawns monsters) in response to damage. [[spoiler:Carla also uses bombs that convert BSAA troops directly into the chrysalis -- justified because, as can be seen in the cutscene, the "bomb" is a ball of syringe-tipped vials of the stuff that are scattered in a FlechetteStorm when it's detonated. The upgraded C-Virus is even more unpredictable; Piers becomes a J'avo (probably since he'd just lost an arm), but Simmons and Carla become full-fledged protean [=BOWs=].]]

* SenselessSacrifice: At the end of Chris's storyline, [[spoiler:Piers locks Chris's escape pod from the outside, sealing his doom in the underwater base's destruction. The thing is, this is completely unnecessary. Even though Piers is infected with the C-virus, he still has his mental faculties and a cure is now in the works using Jake's blood.]]

* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: Simmons and the Family want to preserve global stability by any means necessary. Simmons himself gave the order to [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis nuke Raccoon City]]. He also unleashed the outbreak in Tall Oaks (which infected President Benford and at least 70,000 others in the process) because he believed that Benford's plans to reveal the government's involvement in the Raccoon City Incident would destabilize the world. The game prevents Simmons from becoming sympathetic by showing us his [[PerverseSexualLust sick obsession]] with Ada; his actions in pursuit of said obsession led to [[spoiler:Carla's]] StartOfDarkness -- and, thus, the entire plot of the game. Helena even calls him out by remarking that, to avoid one ''possible'' disaster, he caused another (and killed tens of thousands of innocent people in the process).

* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: Ada repeatedly appears wearing different clothes than we last saw her in, even though she shouldn't plausibly have been able to get changed in that time, especially since she visibly wasn't carrying a spare outfit. [[spoiler:It's actually a hint that one of them isn't actually Ada but her EvilTwin.]]

** During the "hide from Ustanak" portions of Jake and Sherry's campaign, one potential hiding spot is the dumpsters scattered around. Should both characters hide in the same dumpster, they'll randomly start bickering over who is touching whom. Mildly amusing, unless Ustanak is nearby, in which case he'll ''hear them talking'' and promptly kill them.

* HeroWorshipper: A tragic example. Finn Macauley is TheNewMeat in Chris' team where he's actually nice to him (and being the most important, since he's a demolition expert). Near the end of Chapter 2, [[spoiler:Finn becomes mutated by Carla, and puts a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on him]]. In Chapter 3 of Chris's Campaign, Piers gives a WhatTheHellHero to Chris and reminds him of Finn's hero worship of him.

Alongside Chris' and Leon's stories, a third story follows mercenary-for-hire (and series newcomer) Jake Muller as he teams up with [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2 Sherry Birkin]], who wants to find a cure for the C-Virus. As the illegitimate son of the late Albert Wesker, Jake's blood may hold the key to stopping this new threat to humanity, but Jake isn't exactly happy about having that responsibility thrust upon him.
