* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Derek C. Simmons. Though one of the major sources behind the C-Virus outbreak, in the past, he took care of the orphaned Sherry and allowed Claire Redfield to visit her regularly. Claire, being GenreSavvy questions this facade and encourages Sherry to do so as well.]].

* CrazyPrepared:
** [[spoiler:Carla]] seems to be prepared for literally ''anything'' and has numerous contingency plans in place, including for [[ThanatosGambit her own death]].
** [[spoiler:Ada]] correctly anticipates that [[spoiler:Simmons]] will keep coming back and leaves behind a rocket launcher for Leon in the event he does. It could just as easily be a nod to their shared past, though.

* GasMaskMooks: [[spoiler:Neo-Umbrella soldiers]]. Averted with the BSAA soldiers oddly, which is jarring considering the C-Virus is spread primarily via ''Gas Form''.

* CrisisCrossover: Of a sort. It's a global threat, and the first game that includes both Chris Redfield ''and'' Leon Kennedy, alongside Ada Wong and a [[TheBusCameBack returned]] Sherry Birkin, all in stories that interconnect at different points. There is also mention of [[BadassNormal Claire Redfield]], though she does not appear.

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Ostensibly takes place in 2013 (released in 2012), but holographic smartphones, laser robot mines, and HollywoodGenetics all feature in the campaigns.

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Most ActionCommands are the same regardless of character, but averted in at least two ways. The male characters can stop Nepads through brute force, while female characters will simply dodge. [[spoiler:In the Leon vs. Chris cinematic, it's made pretty clear Chris has the advantage in raw physical strength.]]

[[spoiler:In the Leon vs. Chris cinematic, it's made pretty clear Chris has the advantage in raw physical strength.]]]] The rear melee attack (performed when you press the melee button with the camera pointed behind you) is different, however: male characters perform an elbow jab, which drops basic enemies into their "heavy stun" stance while female characters perform a version of Sherry's high kick move, which causes enemies to be dropped to the ground for the instant-kill ground finisher.

* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler:Simmons']] idea of preventing a disaster that could ''possibly'' happen should President Benford expose the truth about the Raccoon City Incident was to cause an ''actual'' disaster by infecting the entire city of Tall Oaks, where Benford was going to reveal the truth, with the C-Virus. Helena even lampshades this:
-->'''Helena''': So to avoid one ''possible'' disaster, you create another?!

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: While not humorous, the mannequin room from Jake and Sherry's campaign certainly qualifies. The main characters never talk about the room when they enter, are in, or leave it, it's never brought up later, and while there's a Green herb on one of the shelves there's nothing else of interest in the room besides the mannequins and [[spoiler: the "art" on the wall at the other end of the room]].

* ItCanThink: One of the gimmicks of the new virus this time is the ability to retain intelligence and mental functions post-infection, ranging from Zombies that can wield melee weapons and firearms against you (very shoddily, but still) to the J'avo, which retain almost all their mental faculties except for a nasty case of AxCrazy.

* OffhandBackhand: One of the new melee options.options is an elbow strike that connects before the character so much as turns around halfway.

* ActionizedSequel: Is even [[UpToEleven more action focused]] than ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' or ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', with characters gaining an enormous freedom of movement (sprint, dodge roll, use stop-and-pop cover, move while shooting, and slide on the ground and fire a la ''VideoGame/MaxPayne''), and more melee attacks and counters than your average BeatEmUp. Besides, like in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', the smarter enemies (the J'avos in this case) often also wield guns themselves, creating straight 3rd-person shooter segments.
