* SawedOffShotgun: The means of close-quarters crowd control provided to Harry. [[FridgeLogic How he managed to stuff six shells into a double-barreled boxlock has yet to be explained.]]
** It is actually most likely a Remington 1100 semi-auto shotgun, with the barrel and stock sawn off. Reload animation looks like Harry is loading shells one at a time into the shotgun. It is actually listed in the same link for the S&W Sigma above.

* JustifiedSavePoint: Fish gotta swim, writers gotta write. Harry takes careful notes on his experiences; these notepads come in handy for Heather in ''SilentHill3''.

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

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The Japanese and PAL versions replace the Grey Children (which had already been toned down from their earlier versions) with the decapitated teddy bear/mole-like Claw Finger, which wouldn’t have otherwise appeared until much later in the game. Their attacks are the same, though.

Midwich Elementary School, on the other hand, is named after the Creator/JohnWyndham novel ''Literature/TheMidwichCuckoos''.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Konami jumped on the SurvivalHorror bandwagon (created by the success of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'') with 1999's ''Silent Hill'', the first game of Konami's ''Franchise/SilentHill'' franchise and a far more psychological take on the Survival Horror genre.

In the year 1983, single father Harry Mason and his young daughter Cheryl are driving to the resort town of Silent Hill for a holiday vacation. Suddenly, Harry swerves to avoid a girl standing in the road and [[FrightDeathtrap crashes his car]]. When he regains consciousness, Harry realises he has crashed on the outskirts of Silent Hill, and that [[AdultFear Cheryl has left the car]].
