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.

* {{Fanservice}}: If you unlock the Dog ending (or just watch it [[http://youtu.be/cJL_L5_4vso on You Tube]]), the credits end with a shot of Maria in her underwear.

** Presumably [[spoiler:James is also driven to madness in the Maria ending, where I decides to forget about Mary and live with Maria, who isn't real, being just a manifestation of his guilt.]]
