Power of the verse
Not so strong, is one of the weakest Capcom's universes. But, it is almost as strong as Resident Evil, almost because Resident Evil has more tech and better monsters.
The average zombie is as strong the George Romero´s Zombie. But they are a lot more contagious (if they bite you, scratch you or even spit on you, you will become infected sooner or later; and some of them can make you infected if you inhale their putrified bodies), and in night time they become faster and stronger. They can even mutate into Gas Zombies, getting the ability to shoot gas and vomit so hard that it can stunt and even kill someone (no kidding), they can mutate into King Zombies, making them stronger and more durable.
The Army featured in Dead Rising is as strong as the real life one.
