* OneOfUs: Perhaps the filmmakers took a cue from Creator/LucioFulci's ''Film/{{Zombi 3D}}'' (which was inspired in part by the first film, mind you) when writing the zombies of this film; in both films, it takes just a few hits to off a walking corpse.

!!This film has the examples of:

* CaptainErsatz: Hydra Tech is pretty much [[Franchise/ResidentEvil The Umbrella Corporation]].
* {{Meganekko}}: Becky from ''Necropolis'' ([[UnnecessaryMakeover but not]] ''Rave to the Grave'')
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The fourth film had zombies with ''[[{{BFG}} miniguns]] and circular saws for arms.'' Unfortunately, [[spoiler: they were also the main character's parents who died about a year before.]]
* OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo
* OneOfUs: Perhaps the filmmakers took a cue from Creator/LucioFulci's ''Film/{{Zombi 3D}}'' (which was inspired in part by the first film, mind you) when writing the zombies of this film; in both films, it takes just a few hits to off a walking corpse.
* RaisingTheSteaks: A number of rats are affected.
* VillainDecay: The zombies in this movie and the sequel are nowhere near the invincible juggernauts of films previous; whereas those zombies could only be killed by burning or by electrocution (''[[AshesToCrashes preferably]]'' by electrocution), here it takes just a few hits to kill them.
