* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: L.J. drops his ModernMinstrelsy shtick in and becomes an actual character rather than a "street flava" joke-dispensing device. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it's only then that he gets killed off.]]

* TheyWastedAPefectlyGoodCharacter: Given that there is a teenage girl in the convoy who gets a lot of screentime, the viewer could be forgiven for guessing she's Angela Ashford after the TimeSkip and then getting surprised when she's revealed to be a new character named K-Mart. Had she been really Angie, it would have opened the door to many interesting storylines due to her lingering T-Virus mutation and family relationship with Carlos and Alice (and even although her actress Sophie Vavasseur wasn't available, the mentioned TimeSkip would have allowed them to recast her believably). Instead, the character is literally forgotten in the film, and unlike Jill she never reappears or is mentioned again in the franchise.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Angela Ashford's absence from the film is explained in the novelization, where Dr. Isaacs used Umbrella's cybernetic control to force Alice to kill her. However, despite being a plot point that should have produced a lot of angst and could have been used to give Alice more depth, nothing of this is ever mentioned in the entire film, and Angie's fate is left unrevealed. Given that Alice and Carlos are positively cheerful in their reunion and that there is a teenage girl in the convoy who goes unnamed for many scenes, the viewer could be forgiven for guessing she's Angie after the TimeSkip and getting utterly surprised when she introduces herself as K-Mart.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Angela Ashford's Alternately to what is proposed above, Angie's absence from the film is explained in the novelization, where Dr. Isaacs used novelization as having been murdered by Alice under Umbrella's cybernetic control to force Alice to kill her. However, despite mind control. Despite being a plot point that should would have produced a lot of angst drama and could have been used to give Alice more depth, depth if the producers were against bringing back Angie, nothing of this is ever mentioned used in the entire film, and Angie's fate is left unrevealed. Given that where Alice and Carlos are positively cheerful in their reunion and that there is never dedicate a teenage girl in the convoy who goes unnamed for many scenes, the viewer could be forgiven for guessing she's Angie after the TimeSkip and getting utterly surprised when she introduces herself as K-Mart.word to their vanished friend.

* 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 they still had somebody to sell their products to. It's not until the last film that [[spoiler:it's revealed all of this was planned.]]

* TheScrappy: This film solidifed Alice's status as such in the franchise due to how her GodModeSue status is taken UpToEleven. At the end of the film, she has not only essentially made all the characters of the games play second fiddle to her, in no small part due to having psychic powers completely alien to the games, but has also gained an ''army of clones with her same psychic powers''. It almost feels like a TakeThatAudience.
