Added DiffLines:

* GoodBadBugs: Using the Cord in one of the two shutter panels (one in the southwest corridor next to the filing room, another in the northeastern hall leading to the basement) in the A-game makes it so that, in the B game, there are no zombies in the corridor (and surroundings) you ''didn't'' use it on after the cutscene where it blows out; even the zombies that were already there disappear completely. This makes visiting the basement and the goodie-filled eastern office a completely hassle-free experience for the B-game character, as long as you used the cord in the southwest corridor. If you don't use the cord in the A-game, zombies will break through the windows of ''both'' spots.

** Mayor Warren's daughter. While we never see her alive in the game, or even learn her first name, we do know that her father abandoned her in a zombie infested city to save himself. As if that wasn't bad enough she then ended up in the protective custody of [[AxCrazy Brian Irons]]. From there she was hunted down in the police station like an animal, likely raped, murdered and then stuffed by Irons to preserve her beauty.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: While ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' is often cited for making the series too focused on the action and not enough on the horror, this game is very action heavy compared to the original ''Resident Evil''. Where as in the first game had limited ammo and the player had to strategize on which enemies to deal with, ''Resident Evil 2'' is very plentiful with the ammo (even with the more powerful guns like the magnum). As long you don't waste ammo, you can kill every enemy in the game and still have ammo ''left over'' for most of the guns.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Birkin's fifth form, the final boss in the game, can only attack you if you stand around right in front of him. Meanwhile, you've got a rocket launcher.

** Just like [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis Nemesis]] that would follow him, William Birkin also has an ever growing fanbase simply because what an awesome boss he turned out to be.

* IdiotPlot: There are two instances the characters could've just easily escaped the city, but didn't. Of course, these could be justified in the sense Claire was looking for her brother and Leon was on his first day of being a cop on Raccoon City. Still:

* TheWoobie: Sherry hands down. Caught in the crossfire in Raccoon City, with zombies galore, and is being chased by her insane parents, moreso her father - he implants an embryo within her that will turn her into a monster.. Not to mention she has to live the rest of her life without her parents, William (who died when he was shot and subsequently injected himself with the G-Virus) and Annette (who was murdered by her husband in a horrible fashion). This all happens when she's ''twelve'', then she gets taken by the U.S. government due to hosting a mutated/vaccinated G-Virus within her that gives her a HealingFactor. It's good to see that she grew into a capable agent in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', but still, she acknowledged what happened to her father in that game.

As if that wasn't bad enough she then ended up in the protective custody of [[AxCrazy Brian Irons]].

* CompleteMonster: [[FatBastard Brian Irons]] first [[EstablishingCharacterMoment establishes himself]] as an irredeemable scumbag during his university days when he was accused not once but twice of [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raping a fellow student]]. Due to "outstanding excellence in academics", however, he managed to get away with it, later becoming [[DirtyCop Chief of the Raccoon City Police Department]], where the [[MegaCorp Umbrella Corporation]] would bribe him to turn a blind eye as they perform their experiments on the city's citizens. Not only would Irons gladly accept these bribes, but he would use them to fund his own personal "Taxidermy Sex Dungeon of Evil". The place is filled to the brim with bones, surgical tools, acids, and [[TaxidermyIsCreepy stuffed bodies]]. When Umbrella's T-Virus broke free, spreading throughout Raccoon City and causing massive chaos, Irons decides to use this opportunity to kill whomever he wants, [[TakingYouWithMe before the chaos consumes him].] These targets include zombies, innocent bystanders, [[CopKiller fellow cops]], and even the mayor's daughter. While Brian Irons lacks the vast resources, grandiose visions, and god complexes that many other villains have, he makes up for it by being [[AxCrazy utterly psychotic]], [[TheSociopath sociopathic]], [[ForTheEvulz needlessly cruel]], and, [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters despite being only human, horribly depraved]].
