** Josh Stone. Reasons include his accent, his knack to save Chris and Sheva multiple times, especially from [[spoiler:Jill]], the spectacular wrestling moves he performs in the Mercenaries Reunion Mode, and the fact that [[spoiler:he's the only minor character in the whole game that makes it out alive and was there to save Jill after she was released from Wesker's mind control and piloted the helicopter to rescue Sheva and Chris along with her]]. By the way, did you know that he's [[MemeticMutation A LEGEND]]!!!

* ArcFatigue: The mystery of who 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 ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', due to the death of Umbrella, we still are no closer to any answers about the character. This has caused some fans to stop caring about the situation. The fact that her portrayals are inconsistent hasn't really helped. What makes it worse is despite the fact that Ada acts in her own self-interests, Capcom seems quite adamant on portraying her as a sympathetic badass anti-hero, 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.

** Rebecca is either a character who deserves another game or a completely annoying [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] whom some fans are glad was never seen or mentioned after the first game.

** There are fans who want Steve back [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead from the dead]]]] in a sequel. But a ''lot'' of fans also find his whiplashing moods, brashness, and oftentimes his [[{{Narm}} voice]] rather obnoxious and annoying.
** Sheva generally is very polarizing with most ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' fans. To some, she's a typical bland, one-dimensional, and uninteresting character whose main purpose in the game is to be EyeCandy and to push the new "partner" system in the game.[[note]]Which, judging by how the AI was negatively received, failed in that regard.[[/note]] She is also a victim of the racial controversy of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''. On the other hand, Sheva also has a few supporters who liked her characterization as a loyal soldier who had been pushed into a situation that was way over her head. She is completely locked out of Chris and Wesker's history and provides a fresh perspective against the monsters that Chris is so jaded with fighting. Perhaps due to her reputation with fans, she has yet to make any other appearances in the franchise.

** Nemesis is one of the series' longest standing popular monsters. He is highly regarded as the best thing about the game and for contributing a ParanoiaFuel feel to the game that was unlike the series ever had before.

* AudienceColoringAdaptation: The series has permeated popular culture to such point that people whose only contact with ''Resident Evil'' was through the movies often believe Alice is a character from the games and/or the games are all about her as well. Alice being somewhat of TheScrappy has effectively turned this into a BerserkButton for fans of the games.
