* LovingAShadow: [[spoiler: Harry]] turns out to be this. No matter what [[spoiler: he]] was really like, the version presented in game is always [[spoiler: Chery's idealization of him]]. This love is probably not romantic, but then again, [[spoiler: "I LOVE MY DADDY."]].

As part of a new emphasis on "psychological" horror over "survival" horror, the combat system was removed, leaving a player with three options upon encountering a monster: run, find a flare (which wards off the monsters for a short time), or hide. The success of this new setup can vary, but numerous reviewers welcomed this [[http://wii.ign.com/articles/105/1050951p1.html "refreshing change"]] in the genre (as opposed to the [[CatScare jump-scares]] utilized in ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 3'' or the [[ActionizedSequel "fire into hordes of zombies and hope you survive"]] direction ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' has taken in recent years).

* ElectraComplex: [[spoiler:Cheryl]] is emotionally and sexually obsessed with [[spoiler: Harry]], to the point that [[in one of the three possible versions of her personal history]], [[spoiler: she]] even seduces [[spoiler: her]] middle-aged homeroom teacher and later becomes a prostitute whose regular client uses [[spoiler: her]] as an outlet for [[spoiler: his own incestuous feelings toward his own daughter]]. In the said scenario, all of the other major female characters in Silent Hill also expressly state that they are attracted to men who remind them of their own fathers. The [[spoiler: "Dahlia" who seduces Harry also]] looks --- and sounds --- exactly like [[spoiler: Cheryl would if she dyed her hair black]].

** Of the four endings, the one where [[spoiler:Harry and Dahlia]] get a divorce is probably the happiest since its clear they both still love [[spoiler: Cheryl]] regardless of their loss of love for each other, and its the only ending that doesn't portray either of them in a particularly poor light.
* BodyHorror: The Raw Shocks all exhibit more or less of this, especially depending on how you play; Raw Shocks that are [[spoiler: in transition between "states"]] are especially odd-looking..

* RunOrDie: Just before the first chase sequence, Harry is told he can't fight the monsters (Raw Shocks) that he sees in the Otherworld. This turns out to be true for all the chase sequences.

* GuideDangIt: [[ExaggeratedTrope To the point where guides don't necessarily help.]] While in theory the MultipleEndings are simple to get if you have an idea what to do, quite a few players (e.g. LetsPlay/RoahmMythril[[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JUH6Jrl9GQ As detailed here]][[/note]]) have reported getting the "wrong" endings for what they were trying for, or that the game wasn't showing the correct indicators for the ending they were trying for but ''did'' get, suggesting some bugginess with the endings.
