Added DiffLines:

** A big complaint in the original game was William Birkin being handed the IdiotBall and not simply giving HUNK's unit a vial and just saying it was the G-virus, considering that he knew they were going to kill him no matter what. In this version, HUNK's team is ordered to bring him in alive, so there's no way he's going to be able to fool them for long.

Added DiffLines:

** As another minor example, the famous "Wellcome Leon" mistake has been corrected for this version. As an EasterEgg, an extra "l" can be found on one of the desks, suggesting an officer noticed the mistake and corrected it.

Added DiffLines:

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wbbdu5b5Sp0 Collapse]], which plays during Leon's escape from the self-destructing NEST. The frantic strings and ominous horns create the perfect sense of urgency. To top it off, it gets even more intense when Mr. X appears.


* BaseBreaker: The zombies themselves. While it generally agreed that is a good thing that the zombies are a significant threat who are not to be taken lightly, the degree to which they simply ''refuse'' to stay dead is where the contention exists. While this durability both increases the terrifying nature of the zombies and encourages a stealthy play style that revolves around conserving ammo, it comes across as FakeDifficulty to some, in that the only reason the zombies are any threat at all is because they are next to impossible to actually kill. Additionally, their abilities to power through your gunshots and to lunge at you from much farther than they really should be able to in order to grab you largely throws evading them out of the question, so if you have expended all your ammo, then good luck.

** The sudden helicopter crash comes out of nowhere and is left up in the air, since no context was provided as to ''why'' it happened. One can assume that Nemesis tried to shoot down Jill's rescue chopper which caused the pilot to lose control and crash into the RPD. [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis The sequel]]indeed confirms that it was Nemesis' doing, who shot down the helicopter while Jill was desperately trying to reach for it at the beginning of the game.]]

* FountainOfMemes: The vast majority of the fandom's jokes about this game revolve around Mr. X. [[Administrivia/TropesAreTools And for good reason]], as his exceptionally imposing frame and [[ImplacableMan dogged pursuit of the player]] have resulted in him being the most memorable part of the game.

* CrackPairing: There is a ''significant'' segment of the fandom who ship or make erotic memes featuring Mr. X and one of the game's protagonists whom he [[FoeYay "chases" after]]. YaoiFangirls and [[LGBTFanbase bi/gay men]] like the GuyOnGuyIsHot implications of [=Mr.X/Leon=], and both heterosexual men and women show interest in the fantasy of a [[WomenPreferStrongMen strong man chasing a vulnerable young woman]].



* LGBTFanbase: Leon has gained a sizable admiration from bi/gay men (and YaoiFangirls) who [[CrackPairing fantasize about he and Mr.X]] being an {{Uke}}[=/=]{{Seme}} pair. Game mods and fanart in which Leon undergoes severe {{Ukefication}} have given rise to the FanNickname "[[TheTwink Twink Leon]]" in the LGBT community.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyWeapon: The Acid Rounds found here are a far cry to their devastating iteration in the past. To their credit, they can melt off zombie limbs (making them easier to evade) and can be used to stunlock Lickers and several Birkin fights fairly reliably. The problem is that the only way to get them is to combine regular gunpowder with white gunpowder, significantly limiting your supply of handgun and MQ11 bullets when both can blow off zombie legs just as well, if not better. Additionally, most lickers can be evaded by simply walking rather than running, the suppressor for the MQ11 causes it to not alert zombies anymore, and against Birkin, flame rounds and the Spark Shot can prove to be just as, if not more effective.

* {{Narm}}: For some reason Ada decides to wear a dress and high heels with a trench coat to a zombie infestation. One has to wonder what she was thinking wearing something that would offer so little protection and restrict her movement. She seems to be wearing it simply to provide FanService when she inevitably ditches the trench coat for Leon to use as a blanket which is the only thing she has that will actually protect her from bites or sharp objects. Unsurprisingly, she gets injured and ends up needing to be saved.

* MemeticLoser: Agent GHOST from the ''Ghost Survivors'' DLC ended up becoming a favorite subject of mockery due to his resemblance to HUNK and for the fact that he's the ''only'' survivor whose story doesn't end on a triumphant note. Jokes have quickly spread around the notion that he's basically HUNK with ''none'' of the badassery... or the competence. In response to HUNK's awesome codename of "Human Unit Never Killed", fans have dubbed GHOST the unflattering equivalent of "[[FunWithAcronyms Generic Human on Suicidal Task]]."

* CompleteMonster: [[DirtyCop Raccoon City Police Chief Brian Irons]] is secretly working for Umbrella. A raping, murderous human [[TaxidermyIsCreepy taxidermist]], Irons prefers [[SerialKiller killing women]] and having their bodies converted into stuffed dolls for him to admire. Moonlighting as the city's [[OrphanageOfFear orphanage]] director, Irons, under Umbrella's orders, has [[WouldHurtAChild hundreds of children]] painfully experimented on for the Birkins' scientific research, with most of the children dying. When one of the children manage to escape, Irons has Umbrella soldiers execute every child at the orphanage to cover the company's tracks. Kidnapping Sherry and holding her hostage, he tries to gun her down once she escapes.
