In the "Overtook The Games" section, it talks about S.D Perry introducing a character called Trent... however, Trent and his modifications to the storyline actually were introduced from the start of Perry's writings, with the Resident Evil novelisation. This is part of the reason why some fans hate the RE novels. So, yeah, somebody who has a better handle on what tropes apply should probably fix that entry.

I think we ought to rename the first game's page to "Resident Evil 1," which will make it easier to differentiate between the franchise and the first game and managed the subpages such as Character, YMMV, and Tearjerker. As it stands, they are both named "Resident Evil," with the only difference being one is "Resident Evil" and the other is both Franchise/ and Main/, so they share their subpages.

In particular, I would like to make the Character page for the franchise an index that links characters to the character pages they can be found in, as it is in pages for other ongoing series, which is currently impossible.

If nobody protests this change within a couple days to a week, I may assume unanimous agreement and decide to get started.

Sounds like a good plan to me, except it will break a lot of links.

Less than you might think; most of the links go to Resident Evil—which defaults to the series, not the first game's page. A Google search of the site with "VideoGame/ResidentEvil" in quotation marks turned up less than thirty results, most of them in reviews, discussions and something to do with inbound count.

If you're up for it, I'd say go for it this weekend. That will give a week or close to it since your first proposal.

Page has been moved, as have sub-pages. Any idea how to redirect the old page?

Also, I know some of the listed characters under "Index by Character" aren't on the character pages yet. I plan to add them, though I won't be upset if anyone does it first.

Ok, about my edits:

  • Natter: Oh, so freaking much. Many unneded spoilers and story-details not necessary to explain the usage of a trope.
  • Many examples only belong to a single game. I'll move them there.
  • What Could Have Been is Trivia.
