The EX Files (EXファイル EX fairu?) are a series of in-game files found exclusively in the Nintendo 64 version of Resident Evil 2.

The files serve to bridge the gap between the events of Resident Evil and 2, while also introducing plot elements from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil CODE:Veronica, and the cancelled Resident Evil Zero (N64 version).


There are 16 files scattered throughout both the "A" and "B" scenarios. Unlike the standard files in the game, only 8 are present in either scenario. The files share the same location in each scenario, regardless of who the player is controlling.

All "A" scenario files will be carried over to the "B" scenario upon completing the game. However, upon completing the "B" scenario, all files will disappear from the inventory and will have to be obtained again.

In the official localization, all 16 files are given a number (which lists them out of order). The following table disregards these numbers and lists the correct order.
