* From ''NoMoreHeroes'', supported by the fact that Travis can get a luchador costume.

* His family had a thing with mirrors, because Travis' mother claimed to hear from a being in a mirror. Very possibly, they are related to the founders of the town.

** That is referring to the Missionary and the Scrapers, who are actually cult hitmen dressed as monsters or altered by the power of their god.

***When you're in the hospital and solve the mannequin riddle by putting in the plastic parts, you come back to the room and find a body with no eyes -you took the plastic eyes to open another door- I don't know how many commented on this before, but it is probably the moment that made me feel more uncomfortable of the whole series -not the creepiest but it made me doubt what I was doing and Vincent's voice came to me directly-,

Travis father looks like he could be [[HalfLife Gordon Freeman]]'s long lost twin brother or something, and Travis himself is a badly done attempt at TheStoic (except, like in the case of [[SilentHill4 Henry]], the animators missed the mark and ended up with DullSurprise), and all three men have severe underlying psychological problems that very well might be running int he family. (If I recall correctly, one of the weapons you can pick up in ''Origins'' is a crowbar, or at least a wrench...)

** Since their first name is thus their family name, which is (among others) a Japanese naming convention, along with the Mexican masked wrestler costume, does that mean he's [[{{Bleach}} an arrancar]]? It might account for the weirdness increasing thanks to his spirit power, and why he was attracted to such a "spiritual" place.

** Assuming OP means that Travis may be Alessa's father, some more evidence is the fact that Dahlia also knows his name. He even asks her how she knows it...
** Then there's incriminating lines in the game's opening song, O.R.T., which is from Alessa's point of view:
---> ''Is it lonely where you, in there, Dad? Does the darkness know your name... does Mom?'' (Considering the above, yes, Mom may very well know Dad's name.)
---> ''She said, "Her blood turns to ash," laughing... Dad, do you know what you've done this time, to me?''
---> ''Did you have that dream again? Release. Breathe. "You're receiving what you sent," said she.''

The "kid" theory is at least a popular meme on deviantart. ThisTroper could also see [=PH=] as an AscendedFanboy / JackTheRipoff who liked the Butcher's methods, but thought the headgear was lame, so he did some research and decided to base his costume on the executioner outfit instead. Or, alternately, [=PH=] studied under the Butcher (like how Amanda studied under Jigsaw).

** This troper believes Pyramid Head to be a creation of Silent Hill based off of the Butcher, which was created by the town by pulling it from Travis Grady, and which the town is thus unable to create without Travis present. Pyramid Head is, in fact, stronger than the Butcher, as Pyramid Head is unkillable, but the Butcher is not.

** This troper actually got the impression that Vincent's "They look like monsters to you?" remark was actually the somewhat more benign but still unsettling implication that the cultists actually saw the "monsters" of Silent Hill as more angelic or divine beings, since they're ostensibly servants of the cult's god and therefore, see them in a better light.
** This troper would hope that whatever law enforcement is on hand in Silent Hill would do a better job of stopping all these mass murderers before their kill counts hit the third digit.

** This may be inadvertently [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the backstory with Travis's mother considering Travis a "demon". [[spoiler: She even attempted to end Travis's life, but for different reasons than The Cult intended for Alessa's case.]]
