* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Early in the film Kirsty sees messages from his father Larry calling out to her, trapped in "Hell" after being killed in the previous movie. This forms at least part of her reason for entering and exploring the Cenobites' dimension. Along the way, this plot thread is just quietly dropped. The reason is that the script for the sequel was already being written when the first film was still in production, and Andrew Robinson who played Larry ultimately did not sign on for the sequel.

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
* {{Hell}}: The film depicts a gothic-looking, otherworldly area of Hell (or, at least, a very Hell-like dimension [[FromACertainPointOfView that promises unimaginable sensations]]) called the Labyrinth, where the people who [[SchmuckBait solve a cursed puzzle box]] end up. [[LikeABadassOutOfHell Escape is possible]], and the first two movies focus more on human villains who've returned to the real world and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent need blood]] [[SelfConstructedBeing to restore their bodies]] than on [[TheLegionsOfHell the cenobites themselves]].

* RedemptionDemotion: The movie presents an extremely glaring example. Near the climax, the heroine talks the four main Cenobites of the previous film- including Pinhead, the series' most popular villain- into a HeelFaceTurn by reminding them they were once human. Minutes later, they are unceremoniously {{Curb Stomp|Battle}}ed by a newly-converted and thoroughly evil Cenobite. The screenwriter received so much hate mail over this, he wound up invoking WorfHadTheFlu.

* MobileMaze: The world of the Cenobites is presented as an infinite, every changing dark labyrinth of stone under the control of a floating rotating silver lozenge called Leviathan.

* BloodierAndGorier: The bloodshed is more extended and brutal compared to the original. To the point six whole minutes of footage are added in the extended version!

%%* EvilUncle: Frank.

%%* EvilUncle: Frank.* GenuineHumanHide: [[spoiler:Kristy distracts Dr. Channard, allowing Tiffany to close the Lament Configuration, by "dressing up" in Julia's shed skin.]]

* RageAgainstTheReflection: Skinless Julia.
to:
* RageAgainstTheReflection: Skinless [[FlayingAlive Skinless]] Julia.

* RageAgainstTheReflection: Skinless Julia.VillainOpeningScene: In a way - it begins with the StartOfDarkness for Pinhead, as Major Elliot Spencer is ensnared by Cenobite chains.

* WorfHadTheFlu: Many fans were disappointed to see Series villain Pinhead and his cronies taken out by the new Cenobite, [[spoiler:Dr. Channard]]. Many have written off his easy defeat due to him being weakened and disoriented by learning he was once human, a notion supported by ''Hellbound'' screenwriter Peter Atkins.

* AdultFear: Imagine being a parent and your young daughter starts showing signs of obsessive compulsive disorder, becoming obsessed with solving puzzles to the point where it is consuming her life. So, being the loving and responsible parent you are, you take her to a reputed psychiatrist in hopes that he can help her. Instead [[spoiler: he brutally murders you ''right in front of your child,'' further scarring her. Then he essentially kidnaps your daughter, taking her into his asylum where he subjects her to torturous “treatments” that basically render her catatonic to the point where she can only focus on solving puzzles.]] Why does he do this? [[spoiler: So he can use her to open a HellGate.]] Poor Tiffany has been through some serious shit.
