* CutAndPasteEnvironments: ''The Umbrella Chronicles'' reuses assets from the [=GameCube=] installments (''[=REmake=]'', ''[=RE0=]'' and ''[=RE4=]''), as well as the ''Outbreak'' spinoffs. This is why the scenarios "Train Derailment" and "Mansion Incident" are relatively faithful adaptations of ''[=RE0=]'' and ''[=REmake=]'', whereas "Raccoon's Destruction" vaguely resemble the actual events in ''[=RE3=]''. Since neither ''[=RE2=]'' nor ''[=RE3=]'' were remade, and the original UsefulNotes/PlayStation versions were too outdated compared to the other titles, "Raccoon's Destruction" instead uses areas from several ''Outbreak'' scenarios, namely "Outbreak", "Underbelly", "Desperate Times" and "Hellfire". This is also the real reason why ''The Umbrella Chronicles'' glosses over the events of ''[=RE2=]'' and only focuses on what happened to Ada and HUNK (since they already had character models in ''[=RE4=]''). Only Carlos and Nemesis were remade completely for this game.

* "Raccoon's Destruction" -- This file covers, in vastly abbreviated form, the events of ''[=RE3=]''. It contains two one-chapter mini-files: "Fourth Survivor" adapts 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 Kennedy and Claire Redfield from Mr. X.

* 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. Like the other side scenarios, Nightmare is meant to be a one player scenario. Despite this, she still gets a partner, Richard Aiken, 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.

* "Mansion Incident" -- This file follows Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine through the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil''. It contains the two chapter mini-files "Nightmare" and "Rebirth". ''Nightmare'' -- set between the events of ''[=RE0=]'' and ''[=REmake=]'' -- cover Rebecca and Richard Aiken's attempt to discover fellow survivors of Bravo Team (before Yawn eventually attacks them). "Rebirth" -- set in the last minutes of ''[=REmake=]'' -- follows Wesker (awakened from death by Birkin's prototype mutagen) as he fights his way out of the mansion and enters a running battle with the NighInvulnerable Lisa Trevor.

Arguably a BadassLongcoat during the opening cutscene for ''Dark Legacy''. He goes to more of a BadassInANiceSuit for that level.

* 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 ''Raccoon'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.
* FormerRegimePersonnel: DragonInChief Sergei is a former Red Army colonel.

** Usually, the only way to avoid being hurt by a boss is to shoot it and disrupt its attack.
*** This makes it nearly impossible to beat certain bosses unless you have a weapon capable of disrupting attacks. For example, Nemesis has one attack that can only be avoided by disrupting it, one attack that will continue to choke you to death until you shoot him enough times to break free, and one attack that can be avoided only if you shoot all of the tentacles before they make their way to you. If all you have left is a handgun, it is impossible to survive the fight because of his first two attacks.
** Almost all chapters have at least one quick time event during a cutscene, which is telegraphed by an inverted-color fade-in. Missing has consequences ranging from heavy damage or having to fight another enemy, to instant death that even a First Aid Spray can't avoid.

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.]])
