** In the Centennial building you can find a painting of Alex Shepherd's house.

* WrittenSoundEffect: In the Otherworld Monastery, there is a prison hallway made entirely out of cardboard that contains a life-sized string-puppet version of The Bogeyman, LittleBigPlanet-style. A little cardboard SpeechBubble with the appropriate sound-effect written on it appears whenever it swings its hammer.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverGoingBackToPrison: Murphy explicitly says this to Cunningham, and the trauma prison has caused him is visible throughout the game.

* HopelessBossFight: Like in ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'', [[spoiler:inverted in that ''you'' get to be the final, all-but-invincible boss. You ''can'' die, but you basically have to intentionally stand there and let Anne ScratchDamage you to death.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EpiphanicPrison: The most literal example of all the franchise, as prison imagery features heavily. Just like previous installments, the only way for the characters to escape is to deal with their issues.

* ContinuitySnarl: One can say that this entire game is a huge Snarl of Continuity within itself, for example...
** The endings all contradict each other heavily and the plot details that lead up to the ending you get.
** There are cutscenes in the game that don't make sense if the ending you get contracts them (such as Murphy not being guilty of anything in two endings, save for grand theft auto).
** The rules of the town changing based on interpretation that are vaguely presented to you (WordOfGod, or the three creative minds of Downpour each saying that the town has a purpose and or reason on why it does what it does, but all of the ideas from the "Gods" behind the game don't meld together, and of course contradict each other and the game).
** Written details in the games called "mysteries" that vaguely hint to certain detailed aspects in the game that is never outright told, but also go against each other.
** And this is not getting to the other snarls it creates with the rest of the series, which I'll detail one big one now!
*** The game implies that the entire town is purgatory (or may not even be real), and never explains why or how, yet in the original SH trilogy (you know, ''SilentHill1'', ''SilentHill2'' and ''SilentHill3'') the reasoning of how and why the town was the way it is was properly explained as the towns natural spiritual powers having been corrupted by the Cult's perversion of its powers by trying to birth a demon god using the powers of a physic girl, all of which is real and happened.

Like other games in this franchise, the town of Silent Hill takes on a unique personality that preys upon the inner turmoil of the game's protagonist. This time around, the haunted hellscape becomes washed out in torrential rain, representing the prison showers where Murphy encountered and killed a child molester, and electricity arcs across the landscape whenever Murphy travels into the Otherworld, playing into his fears of execution for his crimes. Murphy also sees a lot of fire during his trips to the Otherworld; given the circumstances, Hell might be preferable to an existence in a living nightmare...
