* TheDogBitesBack: Lisa Trevor attempts to get revenge on Wesker for experimenting on her.

* FakeDifficulty: Zombies take a lot of damage unless you hit them in the head. Unfortunately, the game defines "head" as "directly between the eyes and nowhere else." If you hit ''anywhere'' else in the head, it doesn't count, ''and'' makes it harder to actually score a proper headshot with subsequent shots. In ''Racoon's Destruction'', on the Normal difficulty, zombies are strong enough to survive the blast radius from either of the two grenade launchers that you have at that point, though a direct hit will still usually kill them.

Rebecca's [[StephanieSheh voice actress]] also voiced Natalia in ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Tales of the Abyss]]'', who happened to be a princess ([[spoiler:albeit a fake one.]])

'''''Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles''''' is a [[LightGunGame light gun game]] set in the continuity of the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series. Released in 2007, it consists of four stages or "files", covering events depicted or alluded in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil0'', ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' and ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis Resident Evil 3: Nemesis]]'', as well as a new storyline set in 2003. Each "file" does either of two things. It covers, in a compressed, somewhat modified format, one of the original ''Resident Evil'' games. Alternatively, it covers an "untold story", something that happened during that period of time, but which was not seen during the events of the original game. This makes ''The Umbrella Chronicles'' rather hard to place on the {{canon}} issue, though a general rule of thumb could be to consider the files that cover original games to be examples of AdaptationDistillation, with elements that can be considered "canon" if they don't contradict, and the new stories to be {{pragmatic adaptation}}s; the basic details of them are canon, but they probably didn't happen precisely that way. Files consist of: "Train Derailment" -- adapts the struggle of Billy Cohen and Rebecca Chambers through the events of ''[=RE0=]''. Contains the two chapter mini-file "Beginnings", which reveals Albert Wesker's actions during this time after departing the makeshift lab he and William Birkin have established. Knowing that Birkin is activating the self-destruct for the former Management Training Facility, Wesker hurries to escape in order to rendezvous with S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team to carry out his mission, fighting his way through B.O.W.s, zombies, the T-001 Proto-Tyrant, and finally a face-off with his direct superior in Umbrella, Sergei Vladimir, who is not yet aware of Wesker's treachery, but dispatches his bodyguard, the Ivan model Tyrant, to teach Wesker the consequences of failure. Wesker fights Ivan to a standstill, then vanishes when the first explosions start ripping the facility apart. "Mansion Incident" -- follows Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine through the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil''. Contains the two chapter mini-files "Nightmare" and "Rebirth". ''Nightmare'' is set between the events of ''[=RE0=]'' and ''[=REmake=]'', covering Rebecca and Richard Aiken's attempt to discover fellow survivors of Bravo Team, only to be attacked by Yawn. "Rebirth" is set in the last minutes of ''[=REmake=]''; awakened from death by Birkin prototype mutagen, Wesker fights his way out of the mansion, including a running battle with the NighInvulnerable Lisa Trevor. "Raccoon's Destruction" -- covers, in vastly abbreviated form, the events of ''[=RE3=]''. Has two one chapter mini-files; "Fourth Survivor" is an adaptation of the minigame of the same name from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', while "Death's Door" covers Ada Wong's escape from Raccoon City's imminent nuclear annihilation after saving Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield from Mr. X. "Umbrella's End" -- set in 2003, five years after the destruction of Raccoon City (and a year prior to the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''), Umbrella's End shows Chris and Jill's assault on the last known remaining Umbrella facility, a disguised oil rig somewhere in Russia's borders, under the command of Sergei. Though the seemingly inevitable bio-outbreak has occurred by the time they get there, the two survivors of S.T.A.R.S. are prepared and fighting alongside the troops of an anti-B.O.W. group, allowing them to penetrate deep into the heart of the facility, kill the infected, and destroy Umbrella's last hope of revitalising themselves as a bio-weapons supplier; Project T-A.L.O.S. Shortly afterwards, Umbrella is finally found guilty of the destruction of Raccoon City, and officially finished. The mini-file ''Dark Legacy'' reveals that it was Wesker who tipped off the organization that Chris and Jill have signed up with, using them as a distraction to penetrate the facility for his own purposes: to steal the collected data of Umbrella and deliver it to the Agency that he works for, as well as to kill Sergei. It was he who anonymously supplied the incriminating evidence to the media, for his own purposes. A sequel, ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles]]'' came out in 2009.

* LazyBackup: If there's no "player two," your "partner" is perfectly fine with watching you get eaten alive/beaten to death. This is particularly awkward in Rebecca's side scenario, Nightmare. Unlike the main game, Nightmare is meant to be a one player scenario. Despite this, she still gets a partner, Richard, who is clearly seen following her with a gun at the checkpoints and yet does nothing until she gets attacked by crows in a cutscene before the boss fight with Yawn.

Badass Abnormal has been renamed to Empowered Badass Normal. Make sure you check out the new page and its definition before adding the trope.
** BadassAbnormal: Wesker after taking Birkin's mutagen. He manages to finally kill the NighInvulnerable ImplacableMan Lisa Trevor, and in ''Dark Legacy'', he takes on ''two'' Ivans at once and destroys them both. Arguably a BadassLongcoat during the opening cutscene for ''Dark Legacy''. He goes to more of a BadassInANiceSuit for that level.
