Resident Evil, also known as BIOHAZARD (バイオハザード Baiohazādo), is a horror fiction video game-based media franchise created by Shinji Mikami and owned by the video game company Capcom. The franchise focuses on a series of survival horror video games but has since branched out into comic books, novels and novelizations, sound dramas, a non-canonical series of live-action films and animated sequels to the games, and a variety of associated merchandise, such as action figures.

The overarching plot of the series focuses on multiple characters and their roles in recurring outbreaks of zombies and other monsters, initially due to the release of the T-virus, a biological weapon created by the fictional Umbrella Corporation.

Power of the Verse

The verse is relatively strong, boasting many superhuman characters and creatures, as well as weapons and futuristic equipment that is much stronger than a lot of real-life weapons.

The monsters, typically known in-universe as Bio-Organic Weapons or B.O.W.s demonstrate a plethora of superhuman abilities ranging from extreme endurance to pain, super strength and speed as well as minor regeneration. Also, many of them often carry extremely dangerous strains of the many viruses involved in their creation, which gives them the ability to infect people and in turn add them to their ranks.

Notable foes such as the Tyrant boast Wall to Small Building level attack potency and durability, coupled with superhuman speed and extreme resilience, which allows them to endure and function despite being extremely injured.

Certain types of B.O.Ws reach up to Building level power, often by sheer virtue of size, and require the use of futuristic weapons such as satellite lasers and railguns to be defeated for good.

Humans in the series boast Street to Wall level physical prowess and durability, as well as superhuman to supersonic reactions. With access to weapons and equipment, they become able to take out many of the B.O.W.s they encounter.

The verse is also riddled with many types of Viruses that can easily be spread through air or water and cause anyone infected by them to either become a B.O.W or die due to the many types of mutations they cause.
