* AscendedMeme: The "Lead Cenobite" of the first film was given the nickname of Pinhead by the film's fans. In the second film, Pinhead became his official name, and remained such through all the other sequels.

** "Pinhead" actually started out as a FanNickname (and creator Clive Barker did not like it, saying that it was undignified). He was referred to as "Priest" in scripts and "Lead Cenobite" in the credits of the films. It wasn't until the third film (when a backstory for the character was given) that it was revealed that the name he had when he was human was [[spoiler: Elliott Spenser]]. Barker revealed his actual name as a Cenobite in the novel ''The Scarlet Gospels'': [[spoiler: Hell Priest]]

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityCreep: Inverted. The first four films follow a linear plotline, with each entry contributing to the series' mythology. All the subsequent films pretty much have NegativeContinuity.

* LegacyCharacter: The Lemarchand family, though the Chatterer's more visible and continuously invoked. It's debatable whether it's the same character throughout the series.

to:

* {{Interquel}}: All the movies released after ''Bloodline'' take place in between the 1996 and 2127 segments of that film.
* LegacyCharacter: The Lemarchand family, though the Chatterer's more visible and continuously invoked. It's debatable whether it's the same character throughout the series.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainsOutShopping: All the films after ''Bloodline'' involve Pinhead just performing his day job. It's still evil, but contributes nothing to the series' overall mythos.

''Hellraiser'' is a film series based on Creator/CliveBarker's novella ''The Hellbound Heart''. The first film has gone on to spawn eight sequels (only one of which--the second--Barker was directly involved with) as well as a remake. The series has at its heart a puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration, which when properly solved summons the Cenobites, a cadre of sadomasochistic {{Humanoid Abomination}}s. The mascot of the series is the only recurring Cenobite after the second film, the iconic Pinhead, played by Creator/DougBradley. He was given a choice, when filming the first movie, to play either the Cenobite or a workman who showed up for all of ten seconds--bet he's happy he went with the Cenobite.
