Added DiffLines:

* When performing a melee attack on a lone zombie from behind, Leon will occasionally break out a [[VideoGame/DeadRising Frank West Face Crusher]]. Wrestling fans might recognize this move as the "bulldog."
* In another ''Dead Rising'' reference, you can spot a Colombian Roastmasters coffee shop in Lanshiang.
* Completing Chapter 4 of Leon's campaign earns you the Achievement/Trophy [[Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina "Big Trouble in China"]].
* The underground catacomb-like system beneath Tall Oaks Cathedral is seemingly a one-to-one remake of the Trinity Church tunnels from ''Film/NationalTreasure''
* Exploring the empty university in the beginning gives the feeling of ''VideoGame/ClockTower'' and ''VideoGame/HauntingGround''.
* [[spoiler:Piers' sacrifice in Chris's campaign ending is reminiscent of the ending in {{Film/Armageddon}}]].
** This gets even lampshaded by the Let's Players Cry and Cox [[spoiler:who start singing the Armageddon song after witnessing Piers' final sacrifice]].
* One of the bosses is a huge reptilian invisible BOW -- [[Franchise/MetalGear a snake with stealth camouflage]].
* Sherry apparently takes fashion cues from [[VideoGame/{{Uncharted}} Nathan Drake]] with her Lanshiang outfit. ScarfOfAsskicking? Check. Dark brown pants? Check. White dress shirt in a [[FashionableAsymmetry half-tuck]]? Check.
* Many of the Eastern European mercenaries in Edonia wear blue tracksuits with a white stripe, almost certainly inspired by Olek Krupa's character from ''Film/BehindEnemyLines.''
* Zombies on a plane? A direct shout-out to ''[[ Flight of the Living Dead]]'' which is also a homage to ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane''.
* Simons becomes a Tyrannosaur-like theropod in one his boss fights. Particularly, one segment involves Leon and Helena utilizing two [[Main/MoreDakka Miniguns]] on a back of a Humvee being chased by the theropod!Simmons is similar to the T-rex chase sequence in ''Film/JurassicPark''.
