* ThisWasHisTrueForm: The Cenobites, [[DemonOfHumanOrigin demons who were once human]] summoned by the Lament Configuration, turn back into their human form if they're killed. This is first shown happening to Pinhead and his entourage in ''Film/HellboundHellraiserII'' when Channard turns on them.

** ''Pinhead vs. Marshall Law'', which came out during a period when Clive Barker attempted to launch a Pinhead-centric comic book for Marvel, attempts to {{Retool}} Pinhead within the context of the then-pending third film by suggesting that while the Cebonites are agents of Hell, they believe in order over chaos and that Pinhead's various schemes to conquer Earth are all an elaborate {{plan}} to scare humanity, make them stronger, and ultimately more fearful of evil.

* OrderVersusChaos: According the comics, the Cenobites are order. In one of the more comedic stories, an obnoxious, lazy office worker spends all his time tinkering with one of the puzzle boxes, distracting his fellow employees and annoying his borderline ClockKing boss, who easily solves the puzzle for him, summoning some Cenobites. The Cenobites prepare to take the boss to the Labyrinth, only to be told off by him; the boss says he only solved the puzzle because it was disrupting the order, productivity and perfectionism he constantly strived for, which the Cenobites are now doing. The Cenobites mull this over for a bit, eventually decide the boss is essentially "doing Leviathan's work" and decide to take the employee, who the boss had earlier described as "a gear that has become misaligned", in his place.

Added DiffLines:

* BondageIsBad: The Cenobites are literal extradimensional monsters (who were once human) dedicated to exploring the boundary between pleasure and pain on anyone stupid enough to summon them. Physically they look like leather-clad corpses with horrible bodily mutilations. This was made during the height of the '80's disapproval of bondage, and writer/director Clive Barker is very interested in the transgressive.

''Hellraiser'' is a series based on Creator/CliveBarker's novella "Literature/TheHellboundHeart". The novella has a novel-length sequel, ''The Scarlet Gospels' by Barker himself, but the movies based on the novella have garnered the most attention. The first film, an adaptation of the original novellas, has inspired eight film sequels, only one of which (the second), had any direct involvement by Baker himself. A {{Remake}) of the first film languishes in (no pun intended) DevelopmentHell. It has also spun off into countless comic books, some of which have had input from Barker.
