In Resident Evil, the Umbrella Corporation is an evil biotechnology and pharmaceutical conglomerate. Shanghai Ruilan Bao Hu San Biotech Limited is also in biotechnology and, as Chinese Resident Evil fans point out, has a similar logo.

Update: January 29, 2020 - 2:20 am EST: The Chinese Weibo post (below) mentions that this was for fun. The website seems to have featured these Resident Evil nods as a gag, and it was created before the then-new company’s official site launched. This appears to have been an in-joke. Original story follows below:

Of course, Capcom’s Umbrella Corporation has a red and white logo, and this company has a turquoise and white logo.

As you can see on the company’s official site, the logo appears to be real:

As GetNews points out, commenters online in China wondered if the company’s president was a fan of the games or if Shanghai was really Raccoon City.

Back in 2017, Kotaku reported that a skin care clinic had a similar logo to the Umbrella Corportation’s iconic umbrella, red and white color scheme and all. It has since been changed.
