"Piano 1" is a cutscene in Resident Evil 0.[1]


Billy Coen proceeds to play the "Lament" score on the piano. Upon completing it, the wall slides back to reveal a passageway.

Further notes

  • Unlike other character-dependent cutscenes, this one is actually necessary to advance, as the alternate will force the player to do the puzzle again. After obtaining the Battery, the scene can be triggered again.
  • This scene displays Billy's ability to play the piano, ranking him with characters such as Jill Valentine, Cindy Lennox, and Jake Muller, who also play the piano with ease.
