* ExactTimeToFailure: Usually played straight in the third game, but [[AvertedTrope mercilessly averted]] when it comes to Stage 2. "Alright, I beat the Giant Boreworm with (any time limit below 2 minutes) remaining, I-- wait, JENNIFER DIED?!"



* TimedMission: The third game is all about this. You have to complete each mission within a certain time limit if you want Jennifer or David to live. While failing to do so doesn't harm Rick, you can only get the one Good Ending if they both survive.

* VillainProtagonist: In the first game, Rick is dressed like a hospital patient. This is because originally, he was supposed to be an escaped psycho ''chasing'' Jennifer. Him being a standard good guy and her boyfriend was a case of last-minute ExecutiveMeddling.

* BonusStage: The Strange Zone (Stage X) in the third game, they're essentially bonus stages with no timer where you fight off some enemies and pick up some 1-Ups and power stones.

** In the second game of the original trilogy, it was made clear that Rick did in fact kill Jennifer and in the second game had to fight his way into the underworld and bring her back to life. The US version states that the creature from the first game wasn't her and she was trapped in the other house the whole time.

* CameBackWrong: When Dr. West used the information given to him by [[EldritchAbomination an extra-dimensional creature]] to both prolong his life and bring back his dead wife Lenora. While West didn't die, it's implied that the life extension process affected his mind and transformed him into [[HumanoidAbomination something else]] while the resurrection process he used on his wife (which he based the life extension process from) plays this trope straight as while she has brief moments of lucidity, most of the time she's a slavering, beastial, monstrosity that's been implied to have, on one occasion, killed and eaten children.

** Some critics noted that if the developers had given as much attention to the gameplay as they did to the cheesecake, the game might have received better scores.

** The Terror Mask veers towards this and AntiHero in the remake, as it does have justified reasons for wanting to destroy the Corruption (see NobleDemon below) but was still manipulating Rick into its unknown agenda.

The series sat dormant after ''Splatterhouse 3'', and fans clamored for a new game for years. Namco Bandai delivered that game in 2010 with ''Splatterhouse'' (released for the {{PlayStation 3}} and the {{Xbox 360}}). This remake[=/=]re-imagining of the first game essentially works as a modern-day version of its 16-bit predecessors, with all that description entails (one example: if Rick takes a lot of damage, he'll lose massive amounts of skin and ''body parts'' until he can heal). Namco Bandai also included [[EmbeddedPrecursor the entire original trilogy]] (including the uncut arcade version of the first game), which turned the disc into the ultimate ''Splatterhouse'' collection.

*** Almost certainly a coincidence, but Rick's bones sticking out in his mutant form bare an uncanny resemblance to Trent Fernandez/Mikoto Nakadai's Super Dino Mode/Abare Mode in ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder''/''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger''.
