* BizarroEpisode: One of the stories in Wildstorm's anthology comic series based on the games had the S.T.A.R.S. team taking on a werewolf. Not a B..O.W. that resembled a werewolf but an actual one.

** Steve. He meets Claire at Rockfort Island and starts to develop feelings for her. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Steve dies after he finally tells Claire that he loved her.]]
** Manuela. The circumstances surrounding the attempts to cure the disease that she and her mother had is tragic.

** Umbrella as a whole runs on this with their goals and aims being borderline unfathomable; especially with their virus rendering the world a parched, dying desert... And meanwhile they're still expending resources on Alice clones and holding board meetings like an actual trading company.
* MoralEventHorizon: Alice herself crosses this in ''Retribution'' when she destroys the cloning facility and all of the clones in it, even though she kept one of the clones, a little girl, with her, but apparently considered the rest of them worthless. She also apparently never sees the potential in a cloning factory where you can manufacture an infinite number of normal people and give them whatever skills, personality or knowledge you desire, like say, maybe restarting human civilization?
* NarmCharm: Early films have some amazing stunts. Later films have stunts so over the top it becomes hilarious.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: L.J. drops his ModernMinstrelsy shtick in ''Extinction'' and becomes an actual character rather than a "street flava" joke-dispensing device. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he gets killed off.]]

company. They then expend untold billions (Or possibly ''trillions'') of dollars on perfect replicas of cities, fully staffed with perfectly-cloned humans implanted with artificial memories, for the sake of unleashing zombies on them and using the footage as advertising for their T-Virus-- even though [[CutLexLuthorACheck marketing those miraculous technological wonders could have made the company incredibly wealthy without any need for bioweapons at all]].

** The first movie reaches its peak of silliness with the infamous wall-running, Doberman-kicking scene.
** The action sequences in ''Apocalypse'' try just a bit ''too'' hard to be spectacular, to the point that the storyboarding feels like it was done by an overcaffeinated fourth-grader. Each subsequent movie then tries twice as hard to top the previous one. WebVideo/RedLetterMedia's ''Half in the Bag'' analysis of the series includes several clips of Mike, Jay and Rich reacting to these scenes with raucous laughter.
* NarmCharm: Early films have some amazing stunts. Later films have stunts so over If you don't take the top over-the-top action seriously, it becomes hilarious.
absolutely ''hilarious''.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: L.J. drops his ModernMinstrelsy shtick in ''Extinction'' and becomes an actual character rather than a "street flava" joke-dispensing device. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it's only then that he gets killed off.]]

* FirstInstallmentWins: The general consensus is that the first movie is the only one that doesn't suck, due to a variety of reasons. To name a few: Alice wasn't ridiculously overpowered, the movie didn't go overboard on action, there was virtually no relation with the game's canon aside from Umbrella and the fact an outbreak had occurred within one of their labs, etc. ''Apocalypse'' throws all that out of the window and imports several characters from the games and makes them unrecognizable, makes Alice an unbeatable super-human who steals all the spotlight and tries to connect with the games' canon by basing itself on ''[=RE3=]'''s storyline.

* EthnicScrappy: LJ, who is a [[UncleTomFoolery stereotypical black guy]] in ''Apocalypse''. Thankfully, he drops this in the third movie.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The writers have made a few attempts to rein in their more absurd twists and turns, such as removing Alice's story-breaking super powers in the fourth installment and quietly ignoring the ludicrous "T-Virus dries up the planet" scenario in the previous movie (wisely, too, seeing how ''that'' film forgot this plot point before the credits even rolled).
