** The mist originates as a practical solution to a hardware problem in the first game; the original PlayStation didn't have the power to adequately render a whole town, so the developers filled it with mist to facilitate this. The effect proved so chilling that it was maintained even when more powerful systems became available.

* IrishMythology knows of the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A9th_f%C3%ADada féth fíada]]'', the fairy mist (also known as ''ceo druidechta'', druid mist). Supposedly, the ''féth fíada'' was used by the Tuatha Dé Danann to conceal themselves from observers; they also could travel in this mist -- even over the sea. In stories set in later times, druids and even Christian saints are reported to make themselves invisible with magic mist.
