* ForegoneConclusion: This game takes place before ''Resident Evil 4''. It has [[spoiler: Krauser]] in it, in a heroic capacity. 'Nuff said.

Fans have more trouble placing ''The Darkside Chronicles'' on the [[{{Canon}} canon]] scale than they have with its predecessor, since ''Darkside's'' adaptations change things more than ''Umbrella's'' adaptations.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Alexia Ashford (the real one, not [[spoiler:Alfred]]) in her [[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica debut game]], was a more classical high-class villainess who enjoyed a good dose of EvilLaughter and spoke fairly maturely. In ''The Darkside Chronicles'', she's still got the evil laughter but she's now more along the lines of a psychopathic little girl who refers to the T-Veronica virus as a separate person (calling it "Veronica" and referencing how its "angry") and even kills Alfred outright, a stark contrast to how she cradled his body gently and attacked Claire and Steve in the original game as ''revenge'' for his death.

* {{Determinator}}: The T-078 in Game of Oblivion gets caught in the waist by an activated missile. It ''wrestles'' with the rocket-propelled explosive, almost succeeding in holding it at bay until its ignition sequence stops but loses its footing and is carried out of the cargo bay. This is after being shot to death once, left behind on an exploding island, and then it somehow clung onto the escape plane's ''exterior'' until it was halfway over the ocean.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Some of the final bosses are ridiculously huge and powerful. The player may need a special storyline weapon for some of them, but most will go down to the player and their pistol. Specifically, the player needs to use a rocket launcher to defeat Combat Mode Mr. X (a.k.a. "The Super Tyrant"), the Linear Launcher to defeat Alexia, and a missile to defeat the T-078 Tyrant. [[spoiler: The biggest and nastiest of them all, Javier's T-virus forum, goes down quickly to Manuela's flammable blood, but could theoretically be taken down by the player alone.]]

* FakeDifficulty: The creatures, particularly in Operation Javier, keep having their health boosted as the chapters go by. A maximum damage handgun will take out a Gamma Hunter with one shot in the first chapter, but half a maximized clip is needed in the fourth chapter. Couple this with the increasing amount of helmeted zombies who need two shots to remove their helmets and the fact that they seem to get even ''tougher'' in the special Krauser missions. The Hard difficulty reducing the headshot zone to the same level as ''The Umbrella Chronicles'' or worse does ''not'' make things any easier.

* FreakyIsCool: The secret chapters, a retelling from Krauser's perspective after finally reaching Javier's mansion, reveal he has begun to admire the Umbrella viruses and the power they can bring, particularly after seeing what Maneula can do with her T-Veronica infection.

* GiantSpider: This game has the most variety of any ''Resident Evil'' game to date. Giant jumping spiders called Jumping Maneaters in Operation Javier, the tarantula-like Web Spinners in Memory of a Lost City, and giant Black Widows in Game of Oblivion. Did we mention you encounter these all in first person? [[NightmareFuel Meeeeeep.]]

** In the case of the Super Tyrant near the end of Memory of a Lost City, the player needs to time the rocket shot so that it hits when it leaps and lands. Shooting it at any other time causes it to swat away the rocket or catch and return it at the player.
** Third Form Alexia needs to be shot with the Linear Launcher to end the battle, but she moves too fast for the player to get a proper shot. She can be stunned with any other weapon when she launches her needles, giving the player a brief opportunity to switch to the Linear Launcher and hit her.

** The ending cutscene of Memory of a Lost City shows why Leon joined the government to become their agent prior to this game, and where Sherry is. While Claire somehow wandered off after Raccoon City was destroyed, Leon and Sherry were captured by the government and Leon was given the choice; work for them, or be imprisoned while Sherry is taken off for experimentation, due to being the last source of the Devil Vaccine.

* ShoutOut: In the ending of Game of Oblivion, Wesker is seen looking up from the flames of the island facility that Alexia was inside as he watches Chris's helicopter flying away, similar to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]].

** Being forced into very dangerous combat service or else risk having a little girl be killed/vivisected/experimented on/etc. by ''your'' government. The epilogue to "Memory of a Lost City" reveals that this is ''why'' Leon is working for the U.S. Government. Making things worse? [[spoiler: As ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' reveals, the government secretly went and experimented upon Sherry ''anyway''.]]

** ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: That very high stopping power is all but necessary to survive some bosses, who need to be stunned during very short windows of opportunity in order to avoid damage. The wide spread also helps with the tricky aiming on those very important shots.
