* EpiphanicPrison: If there's anything GOOD about Silent Hill, it's that the town's RealityWarping powers of making your own personal hell force the characters to face their issues. If they manage to overcome them, [[EarnYourHappyEnding they'll get out stronger and better than they ever were before]]. If they don't, [[DownerEnding they don't get out]].

* UpdatedRerelease: The Greatest Hits Playstation 2 version and Xbox version of ''SilentHill2'' 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 ''SilentHill2'' and ''VideoGame/SilentHill3''. 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. There's so much wrong with it that it takes over two hours to detail it all, as seen in this highly thorough [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wya4XhTPMcc two]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxYkNUyBhS4 part]] review by the Twin Perfect team.

** ''VideoGame/SilentHill1'' - [[spoiler: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. [[FlipFlopOfGod Maybe.]]]] Played with in SilentHillShatteredMemories, which is [[spoiler: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]].

* {{Acrofatic}}: The Insane Cancers from ''SilentHill3'' would trick players into believing they're rather slow -- they even get up from serious injuries quite fast and attack.

* AlwaysNight: A bit unclear, since the fog makes it just about impossible to see. It's certainly always night in the DarkWorld. In ''SilentHill3'', the game starts off at sunset and stretches over two nights: the daylight portion's spent almost entirely inside an AbandonedHospital and its DarkWorld counterpart.

* BottomlessPits: Usually used as an InsurmountableWaistHighFence, but you ''can'' fall to your death down them in harder difficulties in SilentHill3.

** ''SilentHillHomecoming'' pulled a ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' and switched more to an Action Horror gameplay style by significantly increasing the emphasis on the combat and jump-scare startle tactics while decreasing the emphasis on atmosphere and slow-burn horror the series was famous for.

A new entry in the series was announced for Sony's recently revealed Playstation Vita called ''Silent Hill: Book of Memories'', which is a multiplayer hack-and-slash game starring player-created characters. And as if it wasn't horrific enough as a work of fiction, the 2012 ''Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights'' event at both Ride/UniversalStudios Orlando and Hollywood included a Silent Hill-themed haunted house, ''Ride/WelcomeToSilentHill'', based off of the franchise as a whole.

* MothMenace: Floatstinger is a giant moth boss with, as its name implies, a big stinger on its abdomen, which it uses to skewer the player. It can also spew poison. It seems to be one of the moths from Alessa's butterfly collection, which somehow came to life.
