** For instance, take his appearances in the Labyrinth. Picture this: you're running along, and then you see Pyramid Head coming your way, and there's no way out. You can leave, but that'll risk the chance of Pyramid Head being in another place. The only safe spot is a nook in the wall, mere inches away from Pyramid Head's path. Then Pyramid Head walks by, and it's a moment of "Oh God, don't see me". Thankfully, the nook works...that time.

*** That circular walkway...THAT CIRCULAR WALKWAY. You may spend most of your time running from him screaming "I CAN'T FIND THE LADDER, I CAN'T FIND THE LADDER!" Not to mention the fact that running from him only takes you around the walkway and right into him again.

** One disturbing fact is that you never see Pyramid Head's face. Underneath his metal helmet you can see a tumour-like growth and when he attacks James, a [[OverlyLongTongue long tongue]] or a [[CombatTentacles tentacle-like tendril]] emerges from a hole in is helmet. What exactly is his helmet hiding?
*** Looking closely you can see that the flesh growth appears to be fused to the edge of the helmet. It may be possible that his metal 'mask' is actually part of his head.

** How about the room where you have to go in to get a tablet...then find the door to the cell inexplicably locked? You spend several moments huddled in that cell trying the door over and over again until...it inexplicably opens.

** Oh yeah, well take a closer look at the heads of those 436 people, notice how a lot of them are very...angular.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz9bwW0djZg A cleaned up version of the whisper]] seems to say something like "See my dead wife come home to do some laundry to save me see two cars two.." It's pretty difficult to make out the last bit.

** Near the end of the jail-cell section of the Toluca Prison, one of the places James can enter is the female bathroom. The stall on the far right side is the only one that's closed. The player has the option of knocking on the door, to which nothing responds. When the player walks back to the door to leave, a very loud crash and scream will come from that stall. Sometimes.

** Mannequins in general are terrifying considering they...just...stand...there. They don't move until you get close, don't emit static, and seeing one standing motionless in the middle of an empty hallway? Oh. God.

* The collection of diary entries spread out in the street. Reading through them, you find someone had written down what they knew about surviving the monsters (saying that they'd probably be dead by the time you found their notes). After reading through 3 of the 5, you go to read the 4th, which simply says "Run away". While creepy, curious players will still be wanting to know what the last note says. [[spoiler:"RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!"]]

* In the Lakeview Hotel, if you go up to the third floor at the gate which halts your progress to the room James and Mary stayed at until you get the key, if you stay a couple of seconds, you can hear a female voice (possibly Mary) whisper "James".

** As he is leaving the prison yard, James hears the sound of galloping horses and finds a horse shoe on the door. This may suggest that alternative to being executed by hanging from the gallows, some prisoners may have been [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanged,_drawn_and_quartered quartered]]. Just suggesting the act and letting your imagination take over is so much worse than actually showing a quartered corpse, because you think about it happening (sounds included) instead of brushing it off as some horrible act of the past.

As this is one of the most haunting video games of all time, expect to see a lot of Nightmare Fuel in this section.

** More random plot-irrelevant events that may necessitate a change of pants: The locked bathroom stall in Toluca Prison - you can't get it open, but if you knock on it, there's a chance you'll hear a horrible screaming noise as you leave the room. The room in the alternate Brookhaven Hospital where you periodically hear the sound of glass breaking, if you stick around after killing the nurses. The diary entry from the patient who was locked in the "basement's basement", and the basement itself - there's a barred-off area you can't get to, but when you walk past it, you hear a repeated noise that sounds either like a child screaming or a pig being slaughtered. Oddly, when you actually find the "basement's basement", there's nothing unusual in it except an item you need to solve a puzzle, which is arguably [[NothingIsScarier just as bad]].

** Even worse, his description of the [[KickTheDog dog he shot]] is [[TearJerker absolutely gut wrenching]] is you're an animal lover.

*** The sound of the Great Knife as he approaches is like nails on a chalkboard UpToEleven. You'll be minding your own business when suddenly ''*scree* ... '' ''*scree* ...'' ''[[OhCrap *SCREE*]]''

** In the first apartment building near where James first meets Eddie, there is a bit of graffiti that reads "To Hell", with an arrow pointing towards a door. The door in question can't be opened.

*** Similarly, there's a certain intersection of rooms with several Mandarins in them, and while you're busy trying to run past them before they can grab you, you're most likely to [[JumpScare run straight into him]], allowing him to get a free hit before you finally notice that '' [[ FridgeHorror he's been standing there the whole time ]].

** On a related note, some may find Walter Sullivan far more disturbing in ''Silent Hill 2'' when he's only mentioned in a newspaper article ranting about the "Red Devil" than he is as an out and out serial killer in ''4''.
