* {{Woolseyism}}: The series' Japanese name "Biohazard" was changed to "Resident Evil" when first localized in the United States because the Western localizers at the time could not copyright "Biohazard" as that was already done by an unrelated rock band. The name change is actually somewhat fitting in the initial game, as the game took place inside a residential area (specifically a mansion) with stuff that, until a certain point in the game, was initially believed to be supernaturally evil.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: [[InternetBackdraft Fan reaction]] to the [=GameCube=] ports of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis 3]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica]]'' fell under this, as they came after the ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil REmake]]'' and happened to be straight ports of the initial [=PlayStation=] and Dreamcast releases.
** Releasing them at full price instead of making them budget titles, without changing anything about them, did not help either.

'''Note:''' This is for series-wide YMMV tropes. Individual games' and movies' disputable examples go on their own page.
* AcceptableTargets: The evil megacorporation doing research into biological weaponry, and with contacts in the government, Umbrella. The government does drop the hammer on them rather magnificently, though.
* ArcFatigue: The mystery of who or what Ada Wong is has been dragged on for several games, with no concrete answer being given. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplemental materials]] and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' stated that she was part of an Anti-Umbrella organization. Come ''6'', due to the death of Umbrella, we still are no closer to any answers about the character, causing some people to just stop caring about the character and the mystery behind her. The fact her portrayals are inconsistent hasn't really helped.
** What makes it worse is despite the fact that Ada is very mercenary and acts in her own self-interests, Capcom seems quite adamant on portraying her as a Badass Anti-Hero and in a sympathetic light, though her actions in the games are in no way heroic, and based upon her choices and her lack of loyalty to anybody, you probably shouldn't be feeling ''any'' sympathy for her. The lack of reveal about her past or her motivations also makes Leon's feelings for her come off as incredibly superficial, as he knows virtually ''nothing'' about her, including her real name.
** Note how this entry serves to reinforce the entry for BaseBreaker below.

** The series' trademark [[ScrappyMechanic "tank controls"]] have been a divisive issue for gamers for years (case in point: see article and [[http://kotaku.com/key-changes-make-the-newest-version-of-resident-evil-a-1680713415 comments section, here]]). Some defend the controls because they work in conjunction with the series use of pre-rendered backgrounds and fixed camera angles. Others couldn't understand why Creator/{{Capcom}} stubbornly refused to allow for normal 3D controls, until almost 20 years later, when Capcom ''finally'' relented in the HD remake of the original RE.
*** Actually, 3D controls for Resident Evil games is an OlderThanTheyThink trope application because the Nintendo64 [[PolishedPort port]] of ''Resident Evil 2'' actually featured an alternate option for 3D controls, albeit not as refined as the 3D control featured in the HD remaster of the ''Resident Evil'' remake.

** The announcement that ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'' will be returning to the franchise's SurvivalHorror roots has been almost unanimously well-received. It's also going to be a 1st-person horror game, and ''that'' part has had a decidedly mixed reception.

** [[BigBad Albert Wesker]] has the worst case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder in the entire series. In [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil1 the first game]], he sets up his own team, the STARS, to be killed as test subjects for bio-organic weapons, then resurfaces in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code Veronica]]'' to make another attempt on the life of surviving member Chris Redfield. In ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles Umbrella Chronicles]]'' he kills Sergei Vladimir in order to secure control of the Umbrella Corporation's data, and in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' he really goes to town, killing Ozwell Spencer (his creator), transforming Excella Gionne (his girlfriend) into a mutated monster, and brainwashing Jill Valentine into fighting her partner, Chris, before trying to kill ninety percent of Earth's population with his new Ouroboros virus, all as part of a scheme to become [[AGodAmI god of a new world]]. And that's without getting into the revelations that he murdered his mentor Dr. Marcus (''VideoGame/ResidentEvil0''), or the expermients that he and William Birkin conducted on Lisa Trevor (''[=REmake=]''). Wesker's essentially [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]] and treachery made manifest, all wrapped up in a [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]] and [[SinisterShades designer sunglasses]].

* {{Fanon}}: George Romero's unused screenplay for ''Resident Evil'' has Chris as half American Indian. This seems to have leaked into the fan community somehow, and a lot of fanfic authors will depict Chris and Claire as such. The name Redfield is Scotch-Irish, and Claire going full redhead by ''Code: Veronica'' seems to support the notion that she and Chris are entirely Caucasian.
** There are a lot of supplementary sources of information on ''RE's'' settings and characters that can be found in translated design documents and obscure interviews, some of which never make it into a game's narrative. This includes Jill being French-Japanese (this was apparently intended by the original designer, but was quietly abandoned around the time Julia Voth became her face model) and Ada's background (there's a Japanese audio drama that gives a version of her backstory where she's Vietnamese). Whether or not these make it into fanworks usually comes down to individual preference.

** In the Saturn version of the original ''VideoGame/{{Resident Evil|1}}'''s battle mode, the final zombie to face is a zombified Albert Wesker, implying that he was infected with the T-Virus. While the Battle Mode itself was not canon, Wesker being infected with a virus certainly was, and it actually made Wesker even more dangerous than before.

Let's just say that while the battle mode itself was not canon, Wesker being infected with a virus certainly was, and it actually made Wesker even more dangerous than before.
** Wesker might have been the basis for Master Miller's current look (assuming it isn't a coincidence) in ''Franchise/MetalGear''. In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', Wesker is revealed to have a son. His name? Jake Muller, which is one vowel away from "Miller."



** The debate as to whether or not ''4'' and ''5''[='s=] new direction is a good thing rages to this day.
*** ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilOperationRaccoonCity Operation Raccoon City]]'' is brewing up a similar debate. And let's not get ''started'' on what ''6''[='s=] announcement has done to it.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Leon seems to get all of the [[http://tymethia.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/&offset=48#/dv3isy action.]] Of course, his canon lover is Ada, but he also can be found paired with Alfred, Angela, Ashley, Chris, Claire, Hunnigan, Jill, Kevin, Krauser, Luis, Steve, Manuela, Mendez, Mike the Helicopter Guy, Saddler, Salazar, Sherry, Wesker, [[{{Squick}} a Licker, Ganados, an Iron Maiden/Regenerator, a Tyrant, and even in one slightly disturbing story, Mr. X]].

** Wesker's arguably as bad or worse than Leon. He's practically asexual in the games, but gets more ass than a toilet seat in fandom; virtually every major character has a reasonably popular pairing with Wesker, including characters that he's never met such as Leon or even [[{{Squick}} Jake]].

*** Considering that they sent in a team to shut her down, they probably wouldn't have listened anyway. One still wonders why they apparently didn't have any remote monitoring systems in place. There is no way the lab could be run without some sort of telecommunications to the outside world, even if only Umbrella HQ.



* {{Sequelitis}}: The first film at least tries somewhat to resemble the franchise even if it is with original characters. After that, Alice gets increasingly more powerful, killing off any potential drama. The critical response to the films dipped after the first movie as well.
** This becomes more obvious whenever a fight scene happens with a canon character from the video games. In ''every fight'', Alice comes in to make the save, even ''when she doesn't need to''.
** Averted in ''Retribution''; while Alice does end up saving everyone's ass a couple of times, the Strike Team and Ada both kick a fair amount of ass without her help.



* NarmCharm: Early films have some amazing stunts that you can sort of accept if you squint. Later films have stunts so over the top it becomes hilarious.

** Umbrella as a whole runs on this, however, 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.

* VillainDecay: The Nemesis suffers from this HARD. Whereas it was TheJuggernaut in the game, in the movies it loses after a short fistfight with Alice where it goes down from nowhere near what it takes to kill it in the game. Wesker is even worse, as in the games he could survive rocket propelled grenades going off a few inches in front of his face, in the films he's beaten by a shotgun loaded with coins, which according the Mythbusters wouldn't even hurt a normal person that badly.
