** About half of Alexia's dialogue, [[FridgeLogic some of which she will turn to a camera that she cannot possibly know anyone is looking at]], laugh, and turn it off. The novel explains it by giving Alexia psychic powers (to the point that the narration from her point of view really gives the impression of her being omnipotent). The fact that she could project herself in an island half around the globe, or the fact that she knows that an agent of Umbrella is there, scares the shit out of Wesker.[[note]]The novel is based on the original version where Wesker is utterly dominated by Alexia unlike in ''X''.[[/note]]

''Code: Veronica'' marked the series' leap into full-3D environments, with nary a pre-rendered background in sight. ''Resident Evil'' veterans were fairly nimble at the {{tank controls}} by now, but ''Code: Veronica'' is probably the hardest game to control due to the [[CameraScrew awkward camera]]. The key is to dodge enemies and use the knife, which is [[BalanceBuff crazy-strong]] for this very reason. The alternate scenarios of the [=PlayStation=] era also bid their farewell (they wouldn't return until ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6''): Rather than picking which {{player character}} to control at the start, ''Code: Veronica'' starts from Claire's perspective and spends most of its latter half with Chris.

Despite its status as an {{oddly named sequel}} (a result of the game being developed for a brand-new platform), it was once considered to be one of the greatest games for the Dreamcast, and it's still a cult favorite. It had the misfortune of sitting between the old-school trilogy and the twin juggernauts ''[=REmake=]'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', which caused most people to forget about ''Code: Veronica''.

Three months after the destruction of Raccoon City, Umbrella is still producing bioweapons despite a [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating minor setback or two]]. Claire Redfield, still on the hunt for her missing brother, Chris, is captured while infiltrating an Umbrella facility in Paris. The company promptly ships Claire to Rockfort Island, a prison complex located somewhere in the South Seas; while Claire rots away in solitary, an unknown party bombs the island and sets off yet another T-Virus outbreak. Aided by fellow prisoner Steve Burnside, Claire searches for a way off Rockfort while being stalked by the island's other survivor: Alfred Ashford, the demented former warden of the prison.

* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Averted in the main game,[[note]]The reason is that unlike the prior games, ''CV'' uses different, more detailed character models in its cutscenes, and the development team evidently didn't feel like going to the extra trouble of crafting new ones to go with alternate costumes.[[/note]] but the Battle Game mode has an alternate version of Claire who wears a tank top, hot pants, and go-go boots.

* {{Badass}}:
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: This is the game that reveals that Wesker's had some enhancements since the first game.
** TookALevelInBadass: Claire, to a surprising degree.



* BigBad: Alexia.

to:

* BigBad: Alexia.Alexia is the main antagonist of the game.



* ColonCancer

to:

* ColonCancerColonCancer: Due to the unusual placement of the colon in the title, the game is also referred to as ''Resident Evil: Code: Veronica''.



* EnterSolutionHere

to:

* EnterSolutionHereEmpoweredBadassNormal: This is the game that reveals that Wesker's had some enhancements since the first game.
* EnterSolutionHere: A code to open a sealed lab. The code won't work until the contaminated laboratory finishes venting. Learning the code, [[spoiler:by reading it off of a painting in the lab via a surveillance camera,]] also causes the venting to finish. The player still has to enter the code manually. Subverted in another case where the player can enter the temperature setting for the refrigerator to identify a needed chemical without having to learn it in-game.



* TookALevelInBadass: In terms of weapons, the Combat Knife -- normally a JokeWeapon in earlier ''[=RE=]'' games -- gets a big boost in efficiency here, as it can easily floor zombies, and each swipe that hits a zombie or dog does multiple hits. More so if you swipe a downed zombie. As a result, it now does a better job of helping you save ammo ([[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 A sign of things to come?]]), and it's helpful for clearing out hordes of zombies and dogs deep into the game.

* ArtisticLicenceBiology: Alexander Ashford [[spoiler:created Alexia, as well as accidentally creating Alfred]], by discovering a gene that raises intelligence. In reality, intelligence is governed by thousands of genes, each of which only has slight influence. Considering this is a franchise centered around a virus reanimating corpses and mutating humans into gigantic monsters beyond the realm of mortal understanding, [[{{Understatement}} this is a pretty mild subversion of real life biology]].

* BoringButPractical: ''Resident Evil: The One Where the Knife Was Actually Useful.'' With practice, the player soon discovers that the knife in ''Code: Veronica'' is unusually effective and knows how and when to use certain weapons, which makes the game seem a ''lot'' easier.
