* 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]].

* BaseBreakingCharacter: LJ is either an offensive EthnicScrappy or else someone who's ActuallyPrettyFunny.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jill Valentine. Be honest, you wanted ''her'' to be the protagonist.
** Nemesis also counts to a degree.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Many saw the movie simply to see Nemesis blasting people away with a minigun and say his CatchPhrase "S.T.A.R.S."

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Sienna Guillory spent lots 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.

-->Because every fan when they played ''Resident Evil 3'', every single one of them, when they saw Nemesis killing people and being a scary enemy, all of them said in unison: You know what would make him better? '''A tragic fucking backstory'''. [[SarcasmMode Because he's not a scary, inhuman monster unless you care about him.]]

* {{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, however, marks Alice's turn into God-Mode Sue, 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.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: ''Apocalypse'' kicks off the tradition of including fan-favorite characters from the games, and proceeding to have [[BlackHoleSue Alice completely outclass and overshadow them]].
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Sienna Guillory spent lots of time studying Jill's movements from the game and putting a lot of effort into her role. Notably on the DVD commentary, she keeps things serious while Creator/MillaJovovich and Oded Fehr are goofing off.
