* NamesTheSame: One of the Ashford family, Edward, would show up as a MadScientist in ''VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution''.
* NoExportForYou: The UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast version of ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica X]]'' was never released outside Japan.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** In an early version of the story, Alexia and Alfred Ashford were originally known as Hilda and Hilbert Krueger, respectively.
** Jill Valentine was originally intended as the game's protagonist. However, when Hideki Kamiya added the last line to the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' ending to suggest Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield would go on a quest to fight Umbrella, writer Noboru Sugimura was forced to replace her with Claire. The freedom of the character thus allowed the ''VideoGame/{{Resident Evil 3|Nemesis}}'' staff to use Jill.
** Rumor has it that Leon was at one point going to be Claire's partner in this game and also die near the end. Creator/{{Capcom}} quickly realized how bad an idea it would be to kill off such a well-liked character and turned him into the new character named Steve Burnside instead (if true, this would explain why Steve looked so similar to Leon in the original release).
