* FranchiseOriginalSin: While the first film avoided stepping on the games thanks to having its own original characters and playing with them in manner that was realistic to the franchise's universe, ''Apocalypse'' based itself on ''[=RE3=]'''s storyline and imported characters from it, ensuring the rest of the film saga would mandatorily intrude in the games's canon and butcher it with its increasingly contemptious Alice arc. Most notably, this film was the one who turned Alice into an unbeatable GodModeSue and kicked off the tradition of including fan favorite characters from the games to be outlcassed and overshadowed by her in every possible field.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: LJ is either an offensive EthnicScrappy or someone who's ActuallyPrettyFunny.
* ContestedSequel: ''Apocalypse'' is either a good follow-up to the first film (or at least about the same quality) with increased action and improved visual effects, or an overall step down in quality that gleefully stomps on the games's canon.
* CriticalDissonance: The film is the lowest ranked installment of the franchise in Website/RottenTomatoes yet the ''highest'' ranked in Website/IMDb.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Sienna Guillory spent a lot of time studying Jill's movements in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'' and putting a lot of effort into her role. Notably on the DVD commentary, she keeps things serious while Creator/MillaJovovich and Creator/OdedFehr are goofing off.

to:

* MemeticMutation: The line "My name is Alice".
* {{Narm}}: The action sequences try just a bit ''too'' hard to be spectacular, to the point that the storyboarding feels like it was done by an overcaffeinated fourth-grader. WebVideo/RedLetterMedia's ''Half in the Bag'' analysis of the series includes several clips of Mike, Jay and Rich reacting to these scenes with raucous laughter.
* SignatureSong: Even though it is only heard in the marketing, Music/PapaRoach's "Not Listening" definitely counts.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: ''Apocalypse'' kicks off the tradition of including fan favorite characters from the games, and proceeding to have [[BlackHoleSue Alice completely outclass and overshadow them]].
* JustHereForGodzilla: Many watch the movie simply to see Nemesis blasting people away with a minigun and say his CatchPhrase "S.T.A.R.S."
* {{Sequelitis}}: The first film is recognized as a decent action-thriller that, while different from the games, is still entertainingly watchable and doesn't go out of its way to step on the games' canon. This film, however, marks Alice's turn into GodModeSue, the aggressive alteration of the source material's plot and characters to the point that both make ''even less'' sense in the film's context, and an overall step down in quality. In Website/RottenTomatoes, ''Apocalypse'' is the lowest ranked film in the franchise.

** Jill Valentine. Be honest, you wanted ''her'' to be the protagonist.
** Nemesis counts to a degree.
* IdiotPlot: Umbrella kills the population of an entire city just so they can find out who would win in a fight between Alice and Nemesis. Even better, they cover up their nuclear strike with a story about a nuclear power plant melting down, because somebody at Umbrella apparently thinks that a catastrophic nuclear meltdown looks anything like a city-leveling explosion, and isn't going to be investigated by the U.S. government. Or that all those civilians who ''did'' evacuate the city before Cain ordered the bridge closed wouldn't have first-hand stories to tell about the zombies. Ironically it works and the evacuees [[CassandraTruth stories are considered hoaxes]].
