The Wind Crest is used here.

The Wind Crest serves as two different functions between the two versions of the game:

  • In the original Resident Evil, Chris and Jill needed the Wind Crest, along with the other three crests, in order to enter the Courtyard from the mansion.
  • In the remake version of Resident Evil, the Wind Crest was an optional pick up and was only needed to complete a puzzle involving the Magnum at the Courtyard Graveyard.
