* HilariousInHindsight: The character Crystal Waters is an actress before the Zombie Apocalypse. The name sounds unintentionally like a nod to Clear Rivers from ''Franchise/FinalDestination'', who is portrayed by Claire Redfield's actress Ali Larter.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The writers made a few attempts to rein in their more absurd twists and turns, such as removing Alice's story-breaking super powers and clone army, and downplaying the ludicrous, virally-induced desertification from the previous film. If they succeeded or not is up to debate.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: It's clear that Shawn Roberts tried to make Wesker's mannerisms and acting as close to the character's video game counterpart as he could.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Controversial as the idea could be, the previous film has it to where Alice stumbles upon an entire storage unit of her clones, and [[TrailersAlwaysLie the build up to this movie was pretty much based around the fact there was an army of superpowered women taking on Umbrella]]. However, in the first five minutes of ''Afterlife'', all of them are killed after the [[SelfDestructMechanism base in Tokyo self destructs]]. A lot of fans looking forward to this were obviously ticked off.

* TakeThatScrappy: Alice gets brought down to normal, ends up on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle and has all her clones wiped out. For many, it was considered to be the best thing that the directors did to try and redeem the films. But since Alice is improbably overjoyed by it, is still the only character to actually do anything, and remains somehow still capable of doing rather ludicrous stunts even without superpowers, it's ultimately kind of a moot point.

* BrokenBase: Should have the clone army received more screentime? Some think it was good to remove it, while others would have wanted the plot to use it for anything better than a gigantic SacrificialLion.



* IdiotBall: The world has been all but destroyed with a tiny population of still living humans remainin, yet Umbrella is still pissing about with bio-organic weaponry, hosting board meetings and generally acting as if it still had someone to sell it to. It's not until the last film that [[spoiler:it's revealed all of this was planned.]]
