* DroolHello: A Licker's tongue slithers around Mackenzie in the church.



* HandCannon: Being ''Resident Evil'', you know they had to include one at least one example. ''Apocalypse'' has three specific examples of ridiculously large handguns: Carlos' Desert Eagles as duty weapons, LJ's gold plated Desert Eagles, and one random survivor with a Smith & Wesson Model 629 in .44 Magnum.

* SupportingTheMonsterLovedOne: A priest tied up his zombie sister and fed her people, not knowing what else to do.


* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: There's no freaking way Umbrella could have built those enormous walls around the city in any amount of time lesser than ''weeks'', not to speak about the short time allowed by the virus outbreak, which is supposed to be less of a day.



* TheCameo: {{Music/Evanescence}} guitarist Ben Moody has one as a zombie who gets a knife thrown at his head, while drummer Rocky Gray is among the dead that mob the building before the missile hits.

* HeroesFightBarehanded: Alice and Carlos knock out one Umbrella soldier after another with martial arts because they have run out of ammo, but they still don't make any effort to collect their weapons.

* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Our heroes get to the helicopter that Ashford directed them to, and despite his warning about the armed sentry and their successfully capturing our heroes ([[spoiler:Ashford is even killed for his part in it]]), Carlos and Jill somehow break out of their bonds, ''and'' have LJ replace the pilot to stall Cain further. Presumably any plan they had was set up while Cain was busy watching Alice and Nemesis fight it out.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'', Jill spent the game in a skimpy outfit despite the danger of doing so because her apartment was overrun and she had no time to put on something else. No such explanation is given here, so her fighting zombies in revealing clothing (which makes it easier for them to bite her) comes off as her making things riskier for herself without any benefit, as well as undermining her apparent knowledge.



* BeneficialDisease: Alice has gained superhuman abilities because the T-Virus has bonded with her on a cellular level. The film points out that Dr. Ashford designed the T-Virus to reanimate dead cells for medicinal purposes (such as allowing a paralyzed person to walk again by reanimating the dead muscle cells in their legs). The virus has such extreme potency that one must administer it in small, carefully controlled doses alongside periodic injections of an antiviral solution to prevent the virus from spreading into other parts of the patient's body. When the virus gets out of control and spreads too far...well, the film shows what happens.

It becomes somewhat jarring to hear GenkiGirl Jovovich and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] Fehr laughing and having fun, then suddenly hear Guillory's deadpan serious commentary, which makes clear the fact that she actively tried to translate her video game character (Jill) completely from the games to screen.
