What Resident Evil Wiki is not


For biography sections on content pages, because there are multiple canon interpretations of events within the Prime universe canon that do not allow a linear continuity to be written, pages should be set up in a way to accommodate discrepancies while also retaining readability.

The main biography section should be written in accordance with the canon policy while a following section using a level 2 heading called "Lore discrepancies" can be used to summarize canon but contradictory-continuity material or what isn't included in main biography.

Pages implementing this format rule should have the Lore discrepancies template under their Biography section heading.

"Lore discrepancies" should cover these groups of sources;

  • The branching paths of the original Resident Evil and its remake but not PACHI-SLOT biohazard or the "Mansion Incident" scenario Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.
  • The 4 scenarios of the original Resident Evil 2 and its remake but not the "Memories of a Lost City" scenario from Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

Currently the Ada Wong is the most up-to-date page written in accordance with this policy.
