"A carving of the sun."
— Item description (1996)

Sun Crest is a key item in Resident Evil.


In the original Resident Evil and its adaptations, the Sun Crest is required to gain access to the shed and courtyard.[citation needed]

In the 2002 remake and its adaptations, the Sun Crest is instead used on a gravestone in the courtyard cemetery for the purpose of retrieving the Magnum Revolver.[1]


In the original Resident Evil, the crest can be found inside the Armor room.

In the Director's Cut arrange mode the Sun Crest is in the Greenhouse after using the chemical, replacing the Armor Key from the original mode.

In the 2002 remake, the Sun Crest is retrieved from another gravestone in the cemetery after placing in the Wind Crest.
