* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: The game heavily implies this trope. [[spoiler:When a player returns to the spot where they killed their first monster later in the game, they'll find it surrounded by police tape. Near the end, the motel keeps shifting between {{bizarrchitecture}} and its normal state. The letter from Mary also counts.]]

** It shifts back to a NightmareSequence albeit with less darkness and more water and [[SceneryGorn rot]] when James leaves room 312, after the revelation that he [[spoiler:killed Mary.]]

* ApocalypticLog: Early in the game, James finds a series of notes written by a dead man, which chronicle his experiences with the monsters and tips on how to deal with them. Chillingly, the second-to-last note say only "Run away." The last only features more repetitions of "Run away!"

* GainaxEnding: Both the Dog Ending and the UFO Ending (the later only avalible in the Director's Cut, Greatest Hits and Silent Hill HD Collection versions). Keep in mind that both are [[PlayedforLaughs supossed to be jokes]] and can only be obtained in a NewGamePlus in normal conditions.

Added DiffLines:

* AlienGeometries: Silent Hill starts exhibiting this more and more as the game goes on. The prison provides a particularly memorable example, where it seems that one of the hallways was somehow inverted so that it turns into a giant pit.


Added DiffLines:

* OminousFog: Naturally. Early on the town is completely shrouded in fog, though it later goes away when the town goes completely dark. It returns near the end of the game right before you go to the Lakeview Hotel.

Added DiffLines:

** Technically in ''[[SilentHillHomecoming Homecoming]]'' it's not Pyramid Head, but rather Bogeyman, thus being more of an {{Expy}}, at least visually, rather than the same monster. There are some minor design differences between the two. Also, Bogeyman is also a manifestation of [[spoiler: Adam's guilt. Not Alex's but his father's]].
** Also, in ''[[SilentHillOrigins Origins]]'' we have the Butcher, who is visually somewhat similar to ol' Pyramid has different symbolism. Whereas Pyramid Head is about the guilt of James, the Butcher is either the cruelty and sacrifice of the Order, or is some manifestation of Travis' psyche, possibly fear and anger.
