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.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'' is generally held up as the very best of the games from the original quartet produced by Silent Team. It's certainly had the biggest impact; every game since ''4'' has tried to replicate or take from ''2'' in some way.



** Also played with in 2. [[spoiler: If Maria dies it's game over, but take [[DoWellButNotPerfect too good care of her and you get something of a depressing ending]].]]

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: In any of the games (including the films), the members of the Order are shown to be more evil than any of the monsters in the town.

Added DiffLines:

* JigsawPuzzlePlot: While in some titles you can get a gist of what is going on just by playing them, some details (major or not) are never explicitly told to the player, you can only piece together the entire plot by playing through the game multiple times, reading the notes you find, examining the locations, getting multiple endings, etc.

** There are fans who argue that this misunderstanding of the series and/or obsession with just ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'' has been to the detriment of the series as a whole, and that the failures of post-Team Silent games are due to this. Perfect examples of this can be seen in [[Silent-Hill-is-about-cult.aspx this fan-article here]] and in this [[watch review of Downpour by Twin Perfect]] (relevant segment starts at 1:39:00).

* LostInImitation: As mentioned above, ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'' is both very different to the other three games in the original quartet and the most popular of them. Consequently, ever since Silent Team split up, other designers who have worked on Silent Hill games have tried to emulate ''2'' more than the other three.
