Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Silent Hill is a video game franchise created produced by Konami. Alongside Capcom's Resident Evil, it is considered one of the defining examples of the Survival Horror genre in the medium, being critically-acclaimed for their story, atmosphere, sound design and soundtrack.The series surrounds the various happenings that occur in the eponymous American lakeside resort town; even before the location became known to a slew of disappearances, murders, and mysterious activity (mostly owing to the existence of at least one demon-worshipping cult), Native Americans called the area in which the town stands a cursed "land of the spirits".Perhaps thanks to both that cult's actions and the already haunted nature of the land, Silent Hill is host to multiple "layers." Usually, it's your average Americana tourist attraction. But to select individuals, it becomes a long abandoned, desolate town that's empty of any life save for the lost and damned who stumble onto its streets. And beyond even that lies the crumbling ruin that is the Otherworld: a burning, rusty place that may as well be Hell itself.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In stark comparison to most games in the Survival Horror genre, the game focuses succinctly on psychological horror. Every protagonist has an internal struggle that the town itself takes hold of, altering its very environment and the creatures they'll encounter based on their psyche. The series is quite fond of Nothing Is Scarier, making use of surreal imagery and symbolism, constantly teasing the horrors that may lie in wait just out of sight.The first four entries in the Silent Hill franchise were developed by an internal team at Konami called "Team Silent", which consisted of "outcast" staff members who had failed to work well on other projects at the studio and had planned to leave the company due to clashing with the creative vision of the studio. Work on the first game even floundered because of this, with it only progressing after Konami lost faith in the project and decided to leave the team to their own devices rather than cancel the game, thanks to the title's low budget. Team Silent would use the newfound freedom to switch tracks to a psychological horror experience inspired by director Keiichiro Toyama's interest in the occult and the works of David Lynch. Positive reception to early demos reinvigorated Konami's interest in the project, with the company giving Team Silent more money and personnel to finish the game, which would go on to be a global critical and commercial success; though director Keiichiro Toyama would leave Konami regardless to create the Siren franchise at Sony Computer Entertainment.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Following Silent Hill 4, Konami would disband the team in favor of having various Western studios develop new games in the franchise. Many of these installments, especially the spin-off entries, would see mixed critical and fan reception at best, never getting anywhere close to mass acclaim of the original tetralogy. While the last mainline game released in the series was 2012's Silent Hill: Downpour, the last major project in development was Silent Hills, which would have been a collaboration between Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. Stealth announced via a surprise trailer unlocked at the end of a free, seemingly-unrelated horror game called P.T. in 2014, the project was cancelled after rising tensions between Kojima and Konami over the Metal Gear franchise led to him leaving the company the following year, with the publisher removing the P.T. demo from distribution for good measure. Since then, the franchise has been in limbo, with the only new content since being a crossover with Dead by Daylight in 2020.

Hotter and Sexier: Dahlia gets quite the makeover in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. The developers says this was done on purpose to cue players in that things are not what they seem. In that game, Cybil may also be a Stripperific cop, depending on what choices the player makes.

Chaos Architecture
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_1527e9ae
comment
Chaos Architecture: The few times in the series when you can return to a location that was visited previously, it's usually different, sometimes radically so. Even though the town looks abandoned, it seems that there's still life in it in some way, as if you're in some sort of shadow-dimension mimicking the real world. However, this trope is averted for the most part, until Origins, all recurring areas have the same map layout, with the only difference being item placement.

Spectacular Spinning
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_17afe894
comment
Spectacular Spinning: Industrial-sized fans are a recurring motif. The Lakeside carousel is home to a boss battle each in 1 & 3. A rotating metal ball appears in the background of both the Split Head fight in 1 and the final boss of 4 (complete with deadly gyroscopic discs and a literal bloodbath in the latter). And whether or not Eileen walks into said ball and discs is part of what determines your ending. The other part is whether you get rid of the aforementioned hauntings or leave them be. And then we have this gem courtesy of Dahlia in Silent Hill, made even better by the fact that gyromancy is spinning around in place while in a circle of letters until you fall down, and choosing the letter you fall on. It was probably just another example of her usual gibberish to fake Mad Oracle and The Cloud Cuckoolander Was Right before Harry, though.

All There in the Manual
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_17ce80aa
comment
All There in the Manual: The Book of Lost Memories (1-3), Another Crimson Tome (4), the victim files (4), and the diaries (5). In a sense, the series ironically could provide an inversion of this trope as well as playing it straight, as the additional material sheds a lot of light on the nature of the cult, the history of the town, and the in-game mythology. The inversion comes when you realize that nearly none of the speculation referring to metaphors, symbolism, and the meanings of certain things has ever been confirmed anywhere, yet a great deal of it is accepted as fanon. Mostly, this has been treated with the occasional Shrug of God, but nothing is ever made specific. Arguably, to some, this makes the series even more frightening, as it literally causes you to come to the horrifying conclusions yourself.

Multiple Endings: Some of which are bittersweet at best, real downers, or pure comedy. In general, they are determined by whether you did two things in the game. If you did none of them, you get the absolute worst ending. If you did one of them, you'll get a bittersweet ending. If you did both, you get the best ending.

comment
Dead All Along: Lisa. She is pretty much the same as the Puppet Nurses that stalk the hospital. She retains some of her humanity, as Alessa remembers her as an odd yet kindhearted nurse, but begins to gradually lose it once Alessa's captured by Dahlia. Harry himself is one of these in the worst ending. A major part of The Reveal in Silent Hill: Homecoming reveals this to be true of Alex's little brother, Joshua. From Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Harry died in a car crash more than a decade ago. Which is also how he died in the worst ending of the original Silent Hill. Hmmmmm...

Cruel and Unusual Death
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_1e584efa
comment
Cruel and Unusual Death: Happens fairly often, but one of the most notable is Richard getting slowly electrified to death in 4. Made all the more unnerving by him still trying to talk as he dies. Jasper's death earlier is just as unusual, in that he's apparently being possessed and forced, not only to burn himself with a candle, but also to carve "17/21" on his own chest. Homecoming has Judge Holloway impaled through the jaw with the same electric drill she tortured Alex with. The Movie features Anna getting skinned alive, Cybil getting slowly burned alive (in full-on gory detail), and Christabella being ripped in half with Alessa's living barbed wire - after it has punched through her crotch and come out through her mouth. Ouch. Murphy's son was beaten, raped, and then mutilated. Later on, Murphy gets to watch another boy's neck get snapped, and it takes a LONG time to occur.

Iconic Sequel Character: Pyramid Head was introduced in the second game, and has since become a iconic part of the series appearing in both movies. Wholly averted in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, with Pyramid Head making no appearance. Largely averted in Silent Hill: Downpour; Pyramid Head only appears once: the Surprise ending, Downpour's equivalent of the previous games' UFO endings.

Failure Is the Only Option: In the Otherworld sequence at the very beginning of the first game, you have to let the enemies "kill" Harry in order to continue. Trying to escape doesn't work, as the only escape route is blocked off. Done again in the third game, when it's his daughter's turn to encounter Silent Hill.

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_27ab0123
comment
Offing the Offspring: In addition to all of the instances of attempted Human Sacrifice, Travis's mother becomes convinced that Travis has been replaced by a demon and tries to commit murder-suicide. In [1], it's revealed that Alex's parents had intended to drown him as a sacrifice as required by the town's pact with the Order's God. A sidequest in Downpour reveals that a woman indirectly but deliberately caused her severely autistic daughter to drown. The worst ending of Downpour has Murphy as Charlie's murderer, which would push Murphy into Unreliable Narrator status. Not a lot of players consider this ending as canonical, though.

And Now For Something Completely Different: In the Silent Team quartet, Silent Hill 2 is actually quite different in terms of plot and theme to 1, 3 and 4. The other games all revolve around a heavy theme of the occult, with 1 and 3 directly involving confrontations with a cult that is involved in the hellish creatures/Dark World of the games and 4 being about the fallout of a twisted occult ritual performed by a Serial Killer. 2, however, involves a more introspective sort of horror, with its famous focus on "repressed memories/hidden guilt".

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_294df577
comment
Dark World: The alternate, dark and evil(er) Silent Hill with the air raid sirens and the (tougher) monsters and screaming and blood and the running and the huge gaping holes of fire and rusty steel grating. And hot, demon-on-demon rape action. And breathing organic walls with heartbeats. And... many other things. *shudder* Shattered Memories changes up the formula a bit by making the Dark World be covered in ice rather than rust and blood. And indestructible monsters.

Zombie Puke Attack
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_29fff7f2
comment
Zombie Puke Attack: The "Lying Figures" (the ones that look like they're straitjacketed into their own skin and stumble around like zombies) squirt acid directly from their stomachs. Lore-wise, they are more akin to demons than undead. There are actually several similar monsters - the Lying Figure (Silent Hill 2) sprays a mist of acid; the Armless Figure (from the films) spews a stream of puke; the Straightjacket (Silent Hill: 0rigins) projectile-vomits; and the Smog (Silent Hill: Homecoming) continuously leaks and belches a noxious black gas. This is unfortunately only one example of every piece of Silent Hill media since the fourth game borrowing and copying things from Silent Hill 2.

Awesome, but Impractical
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_2bdae2ae
comment
Awesome, but Impractical: The heavier melee weapons (hammer, great knife, mace, etc.) and the hunting rifle, particularly in the second game (can't move with it drawn, too slow to fire and reload, only useful for the last two bosses). In the hands of a skilled player, though, the hammer is one of the better melee weapons available.

Tank Controls
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_2d2a7825
comment
Tank Controls: The first three games are a notable example. Dropped when the series stopped its use of Dutch Angle and avant garde camera movement, which fans dividedly disagree upon whether this was for the best or for the worst. While the camera work went a long way to making the games that much more unsettling and the tank controls made the player character slower (increasing the player's fear and stress as it was harder to maneuver around enemies), many critics felt the tank controls hurt the games. Unfortunately you can't have Dutch Angle in a video game without tank controls since trying to control a character with traditional controls while the camera's always changing to strange angles becomes incredibly frustrating, which the original Devil May Cry suffered from, and since most critics were so outspoken against the control style, the development team left it behind in Silent Hill 4: The Room. Shattered Memories has been the only game since then that's made use of tank controls.

Ghost Town
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_2dc3e97c
comment
Ghost Town: An unclear example, actually. No one outside of the town ever says it's abandoned, but we never find out just where the hell the townsfolk are. One very popular idea is that there's an unseen "level" of the gameverse town that's normal and inhabited (an idea that, at the least, makes the most sense for the prequel game Silent Hill: 0rigins). The movie and comic books present Silent Hill as being completely abandoned, although they disagree on whether the "foggy" town is reality. The concept of Silent Hill itself for the movie version is originally based off of the real-life ghost town of Centralia, Pennsylvania, which was abandoned after the coal mines beneath the town were accidentally set on fire. Centralia inspiration and backstory only applies to the movie adaptation and is not related to the games with the exception of Homecoming, which twists many elements of the movie into its own narrative and canon.

Tomato in the Mirror: Silent Hill 2 James, you killed your wife. Eddie you did try to kill that man. Angela no, your mom was an asshole, your brother was physically abusive, and your dad molested you. You murdered him and burned down your house. Maria you aren't real. You were made to represent James' dead wife Mary. Heather, you're the reincarnation of Cheryl, who in turn is the reincarnation of Alessa. Travis, you're a sociopath serial killer. But only in the Bad Ending. Alex, you were never in the army, the whole game was just a delusion. But this assumes that Villains Never Lie and that you get the Hospital Ending. Harry, you've actually been dead for about 18 years - you're just a figment of your traumatized daughter's imagination. Murphy, you are the Bogeyman.

Hand in the Hole: A particularly disgusting version is present in 2, and 4 is essentially this every level. Also, several instances pop up in in Homecoming, where something may rip off your hand if you don't pull it back out fast enough. Lampshaded in 3, if you also have a save file for a complete game of 2; Heather's about to duplicate James' brilliant search technique at which point she pulls back with a disgusted noise, looks to the side and asks "Who would even think of doing something so disgusting?"

Something Completely Different

Something Completely Different: Silly bonus endings are a Silent Hill tradition: Silent Hill can end with Harry being abducted by aliens - after he asks about his daughter, of course. Harry makes a cameo in the UFO ending of Silent Hill 2 (complete with retro blocky graphics) to abduct James after a Catch Phrase exchange. Another alternate ending of Silent Hill 2 is a shiba inu dog did it. The UFO ending of Silent Hill 3 has Harry (and James) getting angry about Heather being picked on by the cult members and unleashing lasery death on the town with an entire UFO armada. And then the credits are accompanied by a very cheesy Japanese song. Silent Hill: 0rigins has an alien with a dog - a suspiciously familiar shiba inu - offering Travis a ride in his UFO. Silent Hill: Homecoming can end with Alex and Elle being abducted by aliens while Wheeler watches in amazement. Silent Hill: The Arcade can end with the Big Bad flying away in a UFO and one of the heroes giving chase in a Vic Viper... zooming out to Robbie, playing on an emulator. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories has the biggest Mind Screw UFO ending of all time: Cheryl claims her father was abducted by aliens, saying Silent Hill is really a giant spaceship. Then James comes into the therapist's office having gotten the day of his appointment wrong (he's one of Kaufmann's couples therapy patients; Kaufmann notes how he hasn't seen his wife recently). Then the camera zooms back to Cheryl, who's turned into the shiba inu dog and begins talking about how her mother was a bitch to Dr. Kaufmann, who has turned into an alien. Silent Hill: Downpour has a rather different joke ending: After digging his way into a room, Murphy is suddenly greeted with a surprise birthday party from the other characters in the game and half the protagonists of other games. Then Pyramid Head shows up to cut the cake, and accidentally breaks the table it is on in half while doing so.

Recurring Riff
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_3bbf3fef
comment
Recurring Riff/Leitmotif: Several of the riffs from the first game's opening theme recur throughout the series. Silent Hill 2 does this the most with its own soundtrack, eg. Theme Of Laura, White Noiz, Forest (Angela's theme, also heard combined with Promise, etc.), Null Moon (sort of Maria's theme, reprised in Fermata In Mystic Air), and Promise (itself based on the series's main theme). Dahlia (Claw Finger and Never Again) and Kaufmann's themes from the first game. The music played when Lisa dies is a variation on the series theme. The main theme of the first game is the basis for "Hometown", Silent Hill 3's ending credits song. A melodic line from "Theme of Laura" from Silent Hill 2 is used in a guitar solo in "Waiting for You" from Silent Hill 4. Part of the guitar solo from "I Want Love (Studio Mix)" from 3 reappears in both "Your Rain" from 4 and "Hell Frozen Rain" from Shattered Memories.

Establishing Series Moment: As the first game's Nightmare Fuel page puts it, early in the game after roaming around empty fog-choked streets for a few minutes you explore down a dingy alleyway which twists and turns, walking through a large puddle of blood until you find a skinned and mutilated corpse strung up on a grid of barbed-wire. Turning around, you find yourself swarmed by shadowy childlike figures wielding knives and dragged to the ground, before jerking awake on a seat in the diner, your horrific experience having been All Just a Dream... Or Was It a Dream? This iconic opening sequence instantly set the tone for the entire franchise.

Insurmountable Waist-High Fence: Everywhere you go, you are blocked by doors with broken locks, police barricades, and points where you can't proceed unless you have the right MacGuffin. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories has used the relative lack of these as a selling point. But it's still not a Wide Open Sandbox. There are so many of these, infact, that it should be its own trope of having an inexplicably large number of locked doors. This has carried on into other games that are non-silent hill franchise. Silent Hill Doors indeed.

Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Silent Hill: Poor Harry.

Averted with Silent Hill: 0rigins protagonist Travis — he's shown dropping Alex off at the beginning of Silent Hill: Homecoming. Thanks a lot for nothing, Travis. Or maybe not. In Downpour, Travis' truck can be found while navigating the town, but he's not there.

Action Survivor: All the protagonists of the games and movie, presumably to give the audience sympathetic leads from various mundane walks of life. Doublesubverted in Homecoming, with a protagonist who believes himself to be a trained soldier and actually does exhibit some martial prowess, but is in fact a civilian with serious delusions of grandeur, only skilled in combat thanks to training from his strict father.

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_586589bc
comment
Journey to the Center of the Mind: One of the basic premises of the series. It's hinted that the town itself has the power to manifest people's personal demons literally. So we're treated to Alessa's mental landscape in the first game, James's in the second, a weird mashup of Alessa's and Claudia's in the third, Walter Sullivan's in the fourth, Travis's with some of Alessa's in Origins, Alex and the parents of Shepherd's Glen in Homecoming, and Murphy's in Downpour. Most obvious in Silent Hill 2. Did James really descend about five miles beneath the Silent Hill Historical Society? The entirety of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories turns out to be this for Cheryl.

Evil Is Visceral: Many of the monsters are based on this — if not visually, then with their sound effects. A theme of rust and blood pervades the Otherworld. A notable exception is Silent Hill 2, which opted instead for mold and urban decay. Shattered Memories is another thing again.

Police Are Useless: Generally averted. 1, 3, Homecoming and to a lesser extent Shattered Memories all have policemen/women as secondary protagonists. Downpour has one as a dogged Anti-Villain. In 2, the monsters are Invisible to Normals, and in 4, the police succeed in capturing Walter Sullivan. Not mentioned in Origins.

Distress Call: James gets a letter from his dead wife to kick off the second game. He also gets calls from her on the radio after he picks it up and after watching the tape in the hotel. In the first game, Harry gets a wall of department store televisions with the same image of his own daughter asking where he is. She says the same thing on the phone in the alternate school. Likewise, early on in Homecoming, Alex receives a call for help on his radio intended for somebody else. In the fourth, Henry gets a call on his disconnected phone from Cynthia after losing her mere moments after agreeing to an Escort Mission. Harry gets these quite frequently in Shattered Memories - including one that was, surprisingly, not from Cheryl.

You Wake Up in a Room: Frequently happens when protagonists 'wake up' in the Otherworld. Following an indoor boss fight in Silent Hill 2, James somehow warps to a forbidding-looking outdoor area with insurmountable walls (Labeled "Courtyard" on the real world map). Except in Downpour where Murphy gets the misfortunate to watch reality melt and ooze away then proceeds to get attacked by a sentient blackhole. Fun.

Hell Is That Noise
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_61a503a7
comment
Hell Is That Noise: Radio static (Detected by your handheld radio) is a common sign that monsters are nearby, which often means that while you're battling all sorts of nasty sights, you're also suffering through being bombarded by radio static. Those sounds in the courtyard of the school in the first game. The movie has this in spades: The banshee-shrieking of the burned children; the gurgling, labored breathing of the armless man; the tormented yells of Colin the janitor; the quiet pained whimpers and gasps that the bubble head nurses make, coupled with the wet popping and tearing of their joints whenever they move; and the infamous scraping sound of the Great Knife... watch the movie on your computer with your headphones in and see if the sound effects don't put up the hairs on the back of your neck. And we can't forget the infamous air raid siren.

Guide Dang It!
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_6ec989d8
comment
Guide Dang It!: While most of the puzzles have in-game clues, it's still nigh-impossible to get some of the endings without consulting a walkthrough. Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill: 0rigins avert this by having the canonical ending be impossible to avoid on the first play-through. Special shoutout to the hard mode puzzles in 3, which require you to have a working knowledge of Shakespeare's tragedies, know a specific fact about a particular species of bird, and be able to intuit that a morbid love-poem that involved mutilating the protagonist's face is supposed to represent keys on a keypad. Though even possessing such knowledge may not help much.

Optional Stealth
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_80580ffe
comment
Optional Stealth: In dark areas of all games where you have a flashlight. Going dark makes you practically imperceptible to normal monsters, allowing you to either come close and whack them to death or just sneak past altogether. The games sure don't stop you from bum-rushing into all places with the torch on, however, and depending on how much health supplies and ammo you have, it's also a very valid way to play.

Driving Question
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_8151ec48
comment
Driving Question: At least one per game, usually in the form of "What the hell is going on?" and/or "Have you seen X?" The first game even lampoons it in the bonus UFO ending, as the first thing Harry starts to say to the aliens is "have you seen a little girl around here" (they stun him before he can finish).

Alternate Universe: Silent Hill seems to exist on multiple levels: the normal, unhaunted town, a demon-haunted, deserted town, and a nightmarish Dark World. At least, this is how it works in the movie: how many realities there are and how they're connected in the game is the subject of much debate.

Where the Hell Is Springfield?
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_8504b817
comment
Where the Hell Is Springfield?: The games never explicitly spell out where Silent Hill is, other than somewhere in New England. Circumstantial evidence strongly implies it to be in Maine, but this is only hinted at and not fully confirmed in-game. Most resources state it's in Maine / ME so it is not a mystery anymore. For that matter, where the hell are South Ashfield or Shepherd's Glen?

No Communities Were Harmed
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_87629455
comment
No Communities Were Harmed: The movie's ash-filled setting is inspired by the real-life town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. The whole community of Centralia was mostly abandoned decades ago when the coal mines beneath the town were accidentally set on fire. To this day, smoke billows up from the ground and scientists estimate that the mines will continue to burn for at least another 250 years. Even the local highway, PA Route 61, has been closed down due to the mine fires cracking through the asphalt.

Old Save Bonus
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_87ce64a0

Old Save Bonus: Having a Silent Hill 2 save file on the same memory card as Silent Hill 3 gives you a couple of extra scenes: Inspecting a mailbox will net a joke about having no mail, not even a letter for a dead wife. Inspecting the rail on the top of the roof will get a comment about how unsafe the whole thing looks. A cutscene in which Heather will approach a filthy toilet to retrieve an item, but recoil and wonder out loud who would do such a disgusting thing. The nightclub in Silent Hill will have a poster advertising performances by Maria.

Creepy Doll: Various bloodied dolls are scattered about Silent Hill in 1 and 3. Silent Hill 2 has a creepy voodoo doll apparently left by an insane prisoner, and although it's not strictly a doll, there's a ruined, creepily-staring teddy bear sitting outside what is implied to be Angela's sealed-off childhood bedroom. In Silent Hill 3, Heather finds various dolls next to diary entries written by a Brookhaven Hospital patient with a crush on her. Silent Hill 3 also introduces Lakeside Amusement Park mascot Robbie the Rabbit, who reappears in 4 and Homecoming. Before the end boss in Silent Hill 3, Heather notices some old dolls in Alessa's bedroom and remarks that one of their names is Scarlet. In Silent Hill 4, Walter gives one to Henry that causes an additional apparition to appear by his chestbox. In Homecoming, Scarlet's dolls and herself during her boss fight. The Doll monsters in Downpour. Then hilariously subverted by the sex doll... The mannequins that send shadow monsters at you while crying, moaning, and laughing however...

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_8c8bd091
comment
Fetus Terrible: Heather/Alessa is pregnant with the cult's God in 3. She has to use the Aglaophotis secretly stored inside her necklace for her body to reject it, causing her to vomit it out. And then Claudia proceeds to swallow the aborted fetus and become the new bearer of the god. Done bizarrely in Homecoming, where Amnion is "pregnant" with the corpse of Alex's dead little brother, Joshua. Whether this is ultimately a positive experience for Alex or very, very bad depends on the ending received.

Non Standard Game Over: Harry meets a gruesome death by tentacle if he fails to use an item before proceeding in the original. Heather, in keeping up the family tradition, meets the same fate if she crosses a bridge without first dealing with the tentacle residing in the sewer muck. Heather births the God if she tries to shoot Claudia near the end of SH3. In SH2, if Maria is killed before she's supposed to die, including during the chase immediately before her first Plotline Death cutscene, it's Game Over. And sometimes, when James is killed during the Hanger boss battle, the creatures lift him into the ceiling.

Karmic Death
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_90d44f44
comment
Karmic Death: In Silent Hill, Dahlia gets fried by the very god she was trying to summon, and Kaufmann, if you saved him earlier, gets dragged to hell by Lisa. Done rather bizarrely in Silent Hill 2 when the twin Pyramid Heads commit suicide on their own weapons once James comes to terms with the truth. In Silent Hill 3: Vincent insults Claudia, ordering Heather to kill "this demon", and earns a knife in the back with a cry of "you'll go to hell!" Claudia also earns one, by ingesting the fetal God Heather vomited up, intending to birth it herself. Considering that she fostered the God's growth by subjecting Heather to horror and hatred, the fact that Claudia's literally left as a smear on the ground could qualify. In Silent Hill 4, Andrew DeSalvo is locked into a cell of the prison where he had acted as its sadistic warden, and later is brutally murdered by one of its former prisoners, Walter Sullivan. In Silent Hill: Homecoming, Judge Holloway has her own electric drill shoved through the bottom of her jaw after torturing Alex with it. Implied in Silent Hill: Downpour. In the "Truth & Justice" ending, Anne, armed with a gun, confronts Sewell after learning that Sewell murdered her father.

comment
Suspicious Videogame Generosity: Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill: 0rigins (as a Shout-Out) both have an absurd number of save points arranged in a pattern as a very unsubtle hint that it might be a good idea to save right now. Depending on your interpretation, it's also symbolic. The town as a whole is also suspiciously "generous" with weapons, ammunition, and healing items, considering that everything else is trying to kill you. Then again, there's no fun in having a plaything die horribly within the first 30 minutes of fun, now is there?

Children Are Innocent: Why Laura locked you in a room full of monsters in 2; children can't enter the Otherworld and therefore can't see the monsters. Though Alessa and Cheryl can see monsters in the first game but it's justified since Alessa being forced to birth the Order's God is what's creating all of them in the first place and Cheryl is the other half of Alessa's soul.

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_916c72b3

Rule of Symbolism: Each of the monsters in Silent Hill represent the subconscious fears and issues of those around, and tie into a general theme. The first game's monsters relate to childhood fears, for example, 2's monsters have a theme of suffocation, and Homecoming invokes drowning with its monsters.

Damn You, Muscle Memory!: While the first three games all had pretty much the same controls, the fact that most of the games afterwards were developed by different studios means that each game has its own control scheme. It's usually not too bad, but playing several of the games in succession can throw you off. 4 in particular had very distinct controls from the rest of the games.

Controllable Helplessness: Aside from the portions of the game where the player can't do anything except watch horrific things happen around them, all of the games can be argued to be an extended exercise in controllable helplessness. This counts especially if you get the bad ending, as you're effectively forced to herd the player character to their own doom.

Walls of Text: The reams and reams of information you get from reading stuff picked up in Silent Hill get quite wordy. Even worse, they aren't always quite expository. One LPer made fun of the use of blacked out words in Silent Hill: 0rigins by pretending to play Mad Libs with the blanks. Mostly averted in Shattered Memories, in that while you do get text messages on the cell phone, few of them (the exception being The Experience in the mall) are overly wordy.

Hyperspace Arsenal: Almost every protagonist in the series is capable of carrying an array of knives, holy swords, stamina drinks, and keys with only the clothes on their backs. Since Origins features breakable items, this means that Travis is often stashing quite a number of improbable weapons in his vests. It also introduces heavy throw weapons, so Travis is running around with not only several pipes and blunt objects, but also portable TVs and microwaves. Somewhat averted in 4, where Henry is given a limited inventory system and has to play around with it in order to progress. Averted for the most part in Shattered Memories. All Harry has are the clothes on his back, the flashlight, his cell phone, and any memento he can lay his grubby little hands on. Averted in Downpour. Murphy can only carry one melee weapon at a time and will have to swap for particular weapons needed for puzzles.

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_9d12bbc1

Foreshadowing: All part of the Mind Screw, though most of it isn't obvious until subsequent playthroughs: "Know what you're shooting, and don't go blasting me by mistake!" Spoken by hot cop Cybil, who gets possessed and will have to be killed if you don't have the red liquid to exorcise her. The bits and pieces of what James gets about what happened to Mary before The Reveal. The recurring headaches and flashbacks Heather gets as the third game progresses. The numbers carved on the victims' chests in the fourth game and the corresponding increase in the bloody handprints on the wall. Plus, one of the hauntings can be Henry, with 21/21 carved in his neck staring through the eye-hole on the outside of the door. A recording in Homecoming has Alex's dad stating that Alex doesn't always see things the way they are. The first dog enemy also receives a lot of foreshadowing, starting with the empty dog house in their backyard. Shattered Memories is full of this, right down to the names of the enemies. Raw Shocks = Rorschach, as in a Rorschach test. You are literally trying to fight off the therapy Cheryl is receiving (or perhaps fighting off the resistance she is giving to the therapy itself?) In Downpour, the series-wide motif of abandoned wheelchairs foreshadow Frank Coleridge's fate.

 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_9dab0a6e
comment
Continuity Nod: In the Silent Hill 2 bonus scenario "Born From a Wish" (which shows Maria's point of view just before she meets James), Harry's name is written on a dumpster as graffiti. In Silent Hill 3, Heather will stumble across Harry's notes in the exact style of the Silent Hill save points just before the last section of the game. She will also comment that there are "no letters for dead wives" in the apartment mailboxes, and refuse to search a toilet for an item, both references to Silent Hill 2; while driving her to Silent Hill, Detective Cartland mentions working on a missing persons case in the town, likely referring to James Sunderland. The UFO endings of each game typically have some nod to the previous games (see below). Homecoming has some interesting nods with its achievements. Beating a Feral is Eddie's Legacy, using health-enhancing Serum for the first time is Kaufmann's Handiwork, beating a Siam is Shades of James, refusing to forgive your father is Angela's Choice, and beating the game on Hard means The Old Gods haven't left this place. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is full of these, mostly to the original game, but also to 2, 3, and Origins. The plot of the fourth game and The Arcade are based around minor articles from the second game about Walter Sullivan and The Little Baroness.

Subverted in Homecoming, where the game starts in an Abandoned Hospital that is also a Continuity Nod, but it's just a dream. Later on, you can find an item or two on the grounds of the familiar Alchemilla Hospital and it's labeled on the map, but you don't actually go inside.

No Canon for the Wicked: The series usually follows this, with the occasional exception. Silent Hill - The third game follows either of the best endings, where both Harry and Cheryl escape the town. In the best ending, Cybil survives as well, but according to developers, she dies. Maybe. Played with in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, which is a remake of the game, but explicitly remaking the worst ending, where Harry dies in a car wreck and the entire game was a dying dream. The game's director claims that Cybil living is the true ending. So this is either averted or played straight depending on which you subscribe to. Silent Hill 2 - James's fate isn't stated for certain, but in the fourth game, his father notes that he and his wife disappeared after visiting Silent Hill. Silent Hill 3 - The fifth game reveals that not only did Douglas survive, he also took down most of The Cult. Which is actually a perfect lead into Homecoming when it is revealed that Judge Holloway is trying to restore the Order, albeit mostly for the sake of breaking the curse that is on Shepherd's Glen, though she does take a certain... glee in torturing Alex and does not care at all about having her daughter tortured and murdered as well. Silent Hill: 0rigins - The main character Travis makes a brief cameo at the beginning of Homecoming.

And I Must Scream: Several of the monsters, particularly the humanoid ones. Silent Hill 2 is pretty much dominated by these guys; Even Pyramid Head, the most invincible of the bunch, was animated to suggest great pain under his helmet. Downpour: After being beaten to within an inch of his life, Frank Coleridge spends the rest of his life as a vegetable before succumbing to organ failure.

comment
Breakable Weapons: Silent Hill 4 has the golf clubs that hog inventory space after they break. There was also the wine bottle, which actually became a slightly better weapon after it broke (though it was still quite weak). Every non-special weapon in Silent Hill: Origins is breakable. Played with in Downpour, as while the melee weapons break after prolonged use you can use the metal parts of objects as more durable weapons.

Always Night: A bit unclear, since the fog makes it just about impossible to see. It's certainly always night in the Dark World. In Silent Hill 3, the game starts off at sunset and stretches over two nights: the daylight portion's spent almost entirely inside an Abandoned Hospital and its Dark World counterpart.

Dull Surprise: The voice actors sometimes don't emote very strongly compared to the horrors their characters are facing, and the animators often choose not to give the cast a wide variety of facial features. Henry from SH4 in particular is considered the worst offender, as he reacts to his situation with nothing more than a mild "What the hell?" The instruction manual for SH4 lampshades this quirk of Henry's: "he never shows his emotions," indeed! Completely averted in Alex's case, who reacts with the appropriate (and usually sweary) exclamations and facial expressions. ("Oh, you gotta be shitting me!") Downpour also averts this now - Murphy is considered the most identifiable protagonist thus far in the series due to how frequently he screams, swears, and just generally exclaims out of fear, surprise, and confusion.

Idle Animation: Every protagonist has one or two. Henry's will change depending on his equipped weapon. In the second game, James will strike a pose reminiscent of Ash in Evil Dead II if you're holding the chainsaw and - according to some - standing over a dead enemy. He'll laugh/yell, too. It's unsettling if you've had to set the controller down to concentrate on something else for a minute. Even some monsters have a version of this. Downpour's Screamer monster hits herself, cries, and makes a rocking motion as if cradling a baby when the player is at a distance.

Shout-Out: The first four games take heavy inspiration and make many references to works by Stephen King, David Lynch, and other known horror authors and directors. Special mention goes to the 1990 film Jacob's Ladder for its influence holding the heaviest presence throughout the games, from the way the monsters look to the way they move, to the foreboding and stressful atmosphere, to the themes, to the Mind Screw storytelling. Silent Hill 3 even copies exact location names and scenarios from the film in its subway area.

Unholy Ground: A textbook example. The land where the town is built was considered a haunted place by the local Native Americans before the settlers came, and after the town was built eerie things occasionally happened. Then a whole lot of evil went on and as a result the dark force inhabiting the land became much more active. Now the town summons anyone with a Dark and Troubled Past and torments them with monsters and visions.

Eileen's is the worst, since the ending you get depends in part on how much she got attacked throughout the whole freaking game. The more she's been attacked, the faster she'll walk towards Walter's death machine, making it nigh-impossible to beat Walter before she's killed if she's been beaten up badly.

Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts: Alessa is the apparition whose sudden appearance causes a car crash in the beginning of Silent Hill and its film the movie, and causes Travis to stop his truck at the beginning of Silent Hill: 0rigins.

Gaiden Game: The Silent Hill Play Novel revolves around Cybil's adventures in Silent Hill during the course of the first game. The game's not referenced by the rest of the series and generally isn't considered canonical, though. Supposedly, The Room was originally meant to be one, before being integrated into the main series early in production.

Bad Samaritan: In the first game, Dahlia turns out to be a dark version of this trope. To a first time player, she seems enigmatic and obtuse, but her advice and clues tend to steer you onto a path to progression regardless. That she turns out to be pure evil after Harry has given her the benefit of the doubt is a pivotal point in the plot.

Updated Re-release
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_df1793de
comment
Updated Re-release: The Greatest Hits Playstation 2 version and Xbox version of Silent Hill 2 were released not too long after the original, adding a new playable scenario and several other extras. The Silent Hill HD Collection for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 features ports of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. It has, however, caught a lot of criticism from both fans and the original developers for changing the look, sound, and feel of the games too much and having many stability related bugs.

Closed Circle
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_e2a6ebc1
comment
Closed Circle: Played straight most of the time, except in 2 and Homecoming. In 2, the player can pretty much always backtrack to the starting area with James's car, but James himself refuses to leave until he finds out what happened to his wife. The developers stated that they made the path from the parking lot to the town in 2 "so long that you wouldn't want to go back". In Homecoming, you can backtrack almost anywhere, but occasionally you're trapped in an area until you find the exit; similar to the second game, the character simply refuses to leave until he's found the person he's looking for.

No Sidepaths, No Exploration, No Freedom: Many outdoor areas, where the player is herded along a linear path from Point A to Point B by locked doors, impassable roadblocks and Bottomless Pits, as well as the Abandoned Hospital in most games, and the alternate mall, sewers, and amusement park in the third game. Made worse by dead-end rooms that don't contain anything important but ammo-consuming Goddamned Bats. While you could wander about outside, you'll eventually run out of ammo and get killed.

Lost in Imitation: As mentioned above, Silent Hill 2 is both very different to the other three games in the original quartet and the most popular of them. Consequently, ever since Team Silent split up, other designers who have worked on Silent Hill games have tried to emulate 2 more than the other three.

In the fourth game, Eileen's extra outfit has her wearing a very skimpy nurse costume. Cynthia also has an extra outfit which further accentuates her assets (if you don't immediately approach her and trigger the introductory cutscene with her while she's in her costume, she's even dancing!) Both outfits come complete with Jiggle Physics.

All Just a Dream
 Silent Hill (Franchise) / int_ea85d6ea
comment
All Just a Dream: Harry is killed in the nightmarish Otherworld at the very beginning of the first game. He then wakes up in the Fog World inside a diner. The worst ending from the first game reveals the entire game to be Harry's Dying Dream. Heather in the third game wakes up in a restaurant just after getting run down by a rollercoaster car in the nightmare, mirroring her father's experience in the first game. Later Heather visits the amusement park for real and narrowly avoids getting hit by the rollercoaster. Played with in the fourth game. The opening sequence initially gives this impression, but it later becomes clear that the player is seeing through the eyes of Joseph Schreiber, Room 302's previous occupant and Walter's 15th victim. Alex in Homecoming wakes up in Travis' semi-trailer truck after being skewered by Pyramid Head's knife in the Nightmare Hospital. The "Hospital" ending of Homecoming. Murphy wakes up from a dream (later revealed to be a flashback) about beating and (possibly) killing Napier at the beginning of Downpour.

One Steve Limit: The Pyramid Head of Homecoming is officially named the Bogeyman; a different monster in Downpour is also known as the Bogeyman. SH4 has Frank Sunderland; Downpour has Frank Coleridge. SH4 has Richard Braintree; Origins has Richard Grady. Surname example: James's wife Mary's maiden name is Shepherd, which she shares with Alex and his family. The developers state that there's no relation.
