Closat key

The costumes are unlocked.

The unlockable costumes in Resident Evil can be worn by Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield upon meeting certain requirements in the game. On occasion, Rebecca Chambers will wear a costume as well.

Resident EvilEdit

To gain these costumes, the player must complete Jill or Chris' story modes with the best endings. After the ending, a screen will display showing that the Closet Key is unlocked. The key unlocks the closet door in the costume room. Inside, Jill and Chris can choose between costumes.

"Please note that the PC and Saturn Versions of the game includes different costumes."

1996-Original VersionEdit

1997-Director's CutEdit

In Resident Evil: Director's Cut, these costumes are worn by default in Arrange Mode. In this mode, the closet is already unlocked. In Chris' story, Rebecca also wears a new costume.

2006-Deadly SilenceEdit

In Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, these costumes are unlocked by completing Jill or Chris' story modes with the best endings on Rebirth Mode. In Chris' story, Rebecca also wears a new costume.

Resident Evil (remake)Edit

In the remake, these costumes are unlocked by completing Jill or Chris' story modes once and then twice on the same save file. After the ending, a screen will display showing that a costume is unlocked. The Closet Key can be found in the item box and will unlock the secret door in the exhibition room, leading to the art supply room where the costumes can be chosen. In Chris' story, Rebecca also wears a new costume.

2002-Original VersionEdit

2015-HD RemasterEdit

On October 1, 2014, Capcom launched a video on the official Resident Evil YouTube channel announcing the inclusion of Chris and Jill's BSAA uniforms in the Resident Evil HD Remaster, following the success of the Raccoon City Contagion promotional campaign.[1][2] These uniforms were worn by Chris and Jill in the Lost in Nightmares DLC from Resident Evil 5, as well as in Resident Evil: Revelations. The models used represent their appearance in 5 instead of the models used in the remake. These outfits are available in all versions of the game.

These outfits do not need to be unlocked and, like the costumes from the original version, can be selected from the character select screen. They can also be accessed in the costume room after you obtain the Closet Key by beating the game once. Only the character selected to wear the BSAA uniform will wear it in the main game. The unselected character will be in their default S.T.A.R.S. uniform.


Unused conceptsEdit


Further notesEdit

  • The Made in Heaven design on the back of Chris' jacket has become an iconic part of the series. His sister, Claire Redfield, wore a vest with the same design in Resident Evil 2.
  • Chris' Sega Saturn costume bears a resemblance to the Raccoon City Police Department uniforms seen in September.
  • In the remake, Jill wears her original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis outfit for her "Casual" costume, while Chris wears his original Resident Evil CODE:Veronica outfit for his second "S.T.A.R.S." costume.
  • Rebecca's cowgirl costume is also featured in Resident Evil Zero.
  • In the HD Remaster, previous costumes can be selected from the character select screen once unlocked.
  • One of Rebecca's unused costume concepts was later created for the Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster. This new unlockable costume is named "S.T.A.R.S. 1997" in reference to the original Director's Cut costume it was based upon. Her costume from Deadly Silence, "Cheerleader", is in the game as well.
