* DestructiveSavior: In the course of trying to avert a biohazard in New York, our heroes blow up several tankers[[labelnote:*]]that are full of and used to spread the virus, but they behave almost exactly like gas tankers[[/labelnote]] in the street, cause a series of major collisions during a chase on the freeway, and fire a gun that blows through four buildings and partially collapses two of them with one shot. However, since they manage to [[spoiler: secure and spread a vaccine that turns back the infection and makes the usual NukeEm response to a biohazard unnecessary]], it's highly unlikely that they would be blamed.

* DisposablePilot: In true ''Resident Evil'' tradition, MauveShirt heroes D.C. and Nadia perform a GunshipRescue to save Leon from a BOW only to draw its attention and get leaped upon, with Nadia getting impaled in the process. [[spoiler: Then Leon returns the favor by launching his bike at it and blowing it up, Chris follows through with an explosive round, and the helicopter and both people on it actually manage to survive the conflagration, subverting the trope.]]

** Leon carries his Sentinel Nine handgun with an extended magazine, so he's able to fire a lot of shots before reloading.



* GunFu: Leon, once again pulls off moves with a handgun that would make Film/JohnWick proud. Chris is no slouch either, combining this trope with BayonetYa and the occasional UnorthodoxReload. Even [[BigBad Arias]] gets in on the action too.

* HandCannon: As a nod to the usage of Magnums in the games, Leon switches from his Sentinel Nine 9mm to a Desert Eagle .50AE when fighting the mutated Arias.



* RealityEnsues: Chris takes a 3 round burst to the back from a 9mm handgun at near point-blank range. His body armor takes the brunt of the impact, but he's effectively out of commission for the rest of the scene and presumably requires some time to recover afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

*{{Fanservice}}: {{Downplayed}}. Rebecca spends the latter portion of the film barefoot in a wedding dress, with her wrists bound behind her back.

** Leon responds to losing an entire squad almost the exact same way Chris did in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 RE6]]'': [[DrowningMySorrows holing up in a bar and drinking]], and grumpily blowing off the person who tries to tries to draw him back into the fight before grudgingly agreeing.

** The scene near the end with Leon, Chris and Rebecca flying in the back of a helicopter as the sun comes up is strongly reminiscent of the good endings to the original [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil1 Resident Evil]]. Rebecca even {{Lampshades}} it.

** The razor hallway that slices the soldiers is very evocative of the ''laser'' hallway that does the same in ''Film/ResidentEvil'' (and also got a nod in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'').
* NotSoDifferent: Even when they're butting heads, Chris and Leon are very similar, as Rebecca rightly points out. Chris argues with Leon for doing the exact thing in the aftermath of his squad being killed that he did in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil6 RE6]]'', [[DrowningMySorrows drinking]] and refusing to get drawn back into the fight; their interactions are even similar to Chris's argument with Piers, except Leon is a bit more morose and less belligerent when he's drunk. Rebecca also very pointedly points out that they're both not the kind of person to simply sit back and let someone destroy the world.
