T-Virus lookalikes in real life[]

Anyone notice those late night Cindy Crawford infomercials for "'creme de serum' meaningful beauty by Cindy Crawford" ? The container is a double helix structure, like the canisters found in the live-action movie.

And like the trailer advertising anti-aging for the T-Virus, it's antiaging. -- 07:58, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Avon had the same idea, which was deemed to be hilarious to its YouTube commenters. It's since been removed from YT (but a mirror might have been reuploaded). -- Forerunner 11:42, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Gorillaz Trivia?[]

Should it be noted in the trivia section that a member of Gorrilaz wears a virus with the words "T-Virus" in this music video? The Milkman | I always deliver. 17:02, November 20, 2013 (UTC)


What's with spelling it "t-Virus"? I'm not as up with the canon as I used to be since I fell away from the series after RE5 and was only brought back by RE2 Remake, but I remember it mostly spelled "T-Virus" or "T-virus". Nomad416 (talk) 09:44, April 13, 2020 (UTC)

In the early years they went back and forth between the capital and lowercase, and finally settled on “t-Virus”. The English localisation of every game since has gone with T-Virus in the meantime, with even the remasters being retroactively changed to conform with what the English localisation team preferred.— Forerunner 13:10, April 13, 2020 (UTC)
So, then, I'm guessing "t-Virus" is the original Japanese spelling? Nomad416 (talk) 03:40, April 17, 2020 (UTC)

Cannibal disease?[]

I keep seeing this phrase pop up all over the wiki. The only known usage of the term "cannibal disease" I'm aware of is in the S.D. Perry novelizations, which while borrowing from Capcom's notes are non-canonical to the Prime universe. Yet, it repeatedly crops up on pages relating to Capcom's prime timeline as well. Is this perhaps something that was lost in the English localization but still present in the original Japanese texts?

More importantly, even if it's proper terminology regarding the disease that afflicts those infected with the t-Virus (similar to how "Coronavirus disease" [COVID-19] is the disease afflicted by the SARS-CoV-2 virus or "acquired immune deficiency syndrome" [AIDS] is the disease afflicted by human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]) in the Prime timeline, I don't see particular justification for the use of the phrase "Cannibal Disease" in regards to any pages concerning the Anderson, Roberts and/or Netflix canons unless the phrase is properly established in material for those timelines as well. Especially when, in most cases, the terms 'T-Virus' or 'Undead', 'Zombie', or 'Zero' could easily fill in-as synonymous.-- JurassicTimes (talk) 19:56, July 19 2022 (UTC)

"Cannibal Disease" is used once in the series - the "Reporter's Memo" file in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. The Kana name is hitogui byou (人食い病?), which translates the same. I'll look into the possibility of making CD a Prime-only thing.-- Forerunner (talk) 21:37, 19 July 2022 (UTC)
