*** Worth noting is that in the first four canonical games, only two of the protagonists have repressed memories, and one of them is (VideoGame/SilentHill3 spoilers) [[spoiler:a reincarnation, which justifies her not remembering her past life or past self.]] Harry and [[VideoGame/SilentHill4 Henry]] are both perfectly normal men who get caught up in Silent Hill's madness. All other games after VideoGame/SilentHill4 have simply tried to copy or borrow from VideoGame/SilentHill2, which is why amnesia about some terrible event in the protagonist's life has become a cliché in the series since.

* UnwinnableByMistake: At the end of the game, a player gets to see their stats; while the game features a certain number of items, it hides one of these items by making it invisible, which means players who don't know about this item will never get everything.

* AdultFear: You get to play a parent who is desperately searching a dangerous city for his missing child. You get to spend a lot of time in the dark where monsters are lurking.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything - In the dark Harry is safer with the light off, so monsters cannot spot him at a distance. For traveling long distances Harry is better off running without the light on, consulting the map as necessary. But if it's dark, the game won't let Harry see the map without the light on. ''Too dark to read the map.'' is the message. Harry also won't pick up items in the dark. One post-Game Over hint flat-out states that it's impossible to complete the game with the light off.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: For whatever reason, the dev team decided to avoid a particular UnwinnableByInsanity moment. If you somehow make it to the final boss (who flies and is thus immune to melee) without any ammo, [[spoiler:[[https://youtu.be/Ud39KTWnguU?t=6m4s it will run a special script, rapidly take damage, and die anyways]]]].

** Harry, unlike other protagonists, isn't a mentally disturbed person who may have repressed memories. He hasn't gone through any trauma (depending on the ending of some other games like Downpour, this does still happen from time to time) unless you count his wife dying prior to the game. He's just a regular man caught up in some insanity he doesn't understand and doesn't really hit a life changing revelation. He just gets [[spoiler:Alessa]] out of the deal.

* BookEnds: The GOOD+ ending [[spoiler:has Harry and Cybil find infant Cheryl in the cemetery]] just like in the opening cutscene. After saving, the opening cutscene of a [[NewGamePlus Next Fear]] game begins with [[spoiler:Cybil in the place of Harry's wife]].

Added DiffLines:

* BadCopIncompetentCop: Cybil. Read above statement, substituting "[[StrangerSafety In an act of stupidity]]." She also [[spoiler:[[ExtremeDoormat takes little persuasion]] to let the same civilian explore a mysterious hole before her, a ''police officer''. "Must be on drugs," indeed.]]

* AgentScully: Harry and Cybil seem to think Dahlia's words about the darkness covering the town are nothing but gibberish and a result of drug intake. Nevermind the fact that by the time they say it, they are in a foggy, snowy, desert, monster-infested town with all roads cut off and no means of contact with the outside. Furthermore, by the time they say it, Harry has seen the transition to the Otherworld and Cybil had just seen Cheryl walking in thin air.
