* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Great detail in the enviroments and texture work, excellent-looking and shot cutscenes, great animations, some really good effects and well-done lighting make Resident Evil 5 look fantastic, especially by modern standards.

** Rebecca. Yep, [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_r1ykeCIP4Fo/SwEA62DJBtI/AAAAAAAAABU/r6QXGlWK9vs/s1600/RE2.jpeg that]] Rebecca. With an auto shotgun that can one shot most enemies and a MP5 for long range work, a good player can kill everything before time runs out.

** DCDouglas, Wesker's voice actor, facetiously mentions in a ''Resident Evil 5'' [[https://youtu.be/3YzMIs9h5Hg?t=9m41s interview]] that he would have liked to see Wesker gotten laid. Then ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' came out, and players are treated to Jake Muller, Wesker's son.

* UnfortunateImplications: As the WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxmvKj3SJGw review]] of the game put it when discussing how the game itself compared to the pre-release accusations of racism:
-->[=RE5=] actually does a lot to defer that accusation. Your partner is black ([[ButNotTooBlack a bit]]), quite a few whiteys are scattered throughout the early hordes, and real effort has been put into a somewhat realistic and sympathetic depiction of modern Africa. ''And then...!'' Halfway through the game, we suddenly find ourselves in a succession of mud hut villages fighting crowds of jabbering black people in loincloths and war paint, chucking spears. ''Oh, dears!'' [[OutOfTheFryingPan Talk about sidestepping a pothole only to fall off a bridge]].

** The same line also becomes hilarious with the release of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and its climax, where its main villain, RedSkull (himself a Comic Book Villain), enacted a very similar plot to Wesker in this game, complete with a large bomber jet and delusions of godhood.

* VillainDecay: For almost the entirety of the series, and most of the game, Wesker, being the resident MagnificentBastard of the franchise, seems to be the exact ''opposite'' of this trope -- until his motives are revealed to be nothing more than generic SocialDarwinist bullshit (influenced by Spencer). Chris even calls him out on it, saying that "He's taking his plans from comic book villains". This is HilariousInHindsight now that Chris AND Wesker will both be in a crossover with [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom Marvel characters]]. Funnier still is that Wesker [[spoiler:is in cahoots with DoctorDoom, so Chris may as well have been prophetic.]]
** Could be justified given his rather... Poor reaction to certain revelations from Spencer.

* UnfortunateImplications: The game was accused of racism in it's depiction of white Americans killing African enemies.

** Reapers. Giant, vaugely humanoid insectoid creatures that resist most of your gunfire, [[HealingFactor regenerate]] what you can damage, including their heads, spew noxious gas, and have a [[AttackItsWeakPoint very tricky weak point]] that you need to hit. The best part is that they have a OneHitKill. If you get close to them, they will ''kill you'', full stop, no calling for help. As bad enough as this all is, it gets worse playing on single-player, when [[ArtificialStupidity Sheva]] decides the best thing to do is to [[TooDumbToLive rush in and close the distance]].
