** [[spoiler:Lisa can't even just die. She is apparently just forced to hide in fear of the Otherworld forever, trapped within. When Harry finds her, she's hiding under a desk. She's just a manifestation of the town, but all the same she can't even just die after the horrors she witnessed alive.]]

* ImColdSoCold: Lisa Garland tells Harry Mason that she's "scared and cold" in a futile attempt to convince Harry to stay with her. When he meets up with her again, she reveals her discovery that she's [[spoiler:been DeadAllAlong, and begins bleeding from every pore as Harry watches in horror.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: A common thread running through the games is that everyone that enters Silent Hill perceives reality differently. You better hope that monster you just beat to death is, in fact, a monster.

* BadPowersGoodPeople: Alessa has the power to control the Otherworld, which is somewhere below "ability to kill puppies by looking at them" on the good/bad power spectrum. [[spoiler: Her goal in using this ability, though, is to keep herself from birthing the cult's god through self-destruction. The main character is the unwitting lackey of Alessa's mother, whose actions could easily bring about the end of the world]].

*** 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.
