* EvilIsSexy: Julia's motivation for choosing bad-boy Frank over his good brother Larry. Of course if she did not like evil then she would have self-loathing issues and for some fans she qualifies as well.

* FetishFuel: If you're into S&M, the entire series reads as this. The design of the Cenobites is even inspired by visits Clive Barker payed to S&M clubs.

* CompleteMonster: Frank Cotton was a cruel [[TheHedonist hedonist]] before he was taken by the Cenobites. After his escape, he shows no remorse in murdering innocent people to drain them of their vital fluids to repair himself. When his niece Kristy Cotton finds him, he tries to rape her. He also murders his own brother and wears his skin as a disguise; Frank also murders his accomplice and lover Julia with no remorse. When he's taken by the Cenobites again, Frank languishes in a private hell and sends Kristy letters begging for help, pretending to be her father so she'll come to save him, solely so he can keep her as a SexSlave.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: Pinhead has very little screen time in most of the films. He generally shows up around the end after very short appearances earlier on, sometimes as a JumpScare.
** ''Inferno:'' Pinhead turns out to be [[spoiler: Joseph's psychiatrist. When he reveals himself as such during the climax, he explains why things have gone the way they have for Joseph, and the behavior he's indulged in to warrant such consequences.]]
** ''Hellseeker:'' Turns up at the end as we learn [[spoiler: Kirsty made a deal with him to take her husband.]]
** ''Deader:'' [[spoiler: During the climax, Winter and the Deaders fail to take over the Cenobite's realm/purpose, and Pinhead takes great pleasure in making them pay for the attempt.]]
** ''Hellworld:'' [[spoiler: It turns out the brief glimpses we get of Pinhead aren't even real, just the main characters hallucinating. It appears that Pinhead doesn't even exist and is only a character for an online RPG based on the Lament Configuration's mythos... until the very, very end, when he turns out to be quite real after all.]]
** ''Revelations:'' This film's plot is patterned after the first one's, but the Cenobytes have their biggest on-screen summoning much closer to the end.

Added DiffLines:

** One interesting aversion is that Inferno and Hellseeker operate on similar formulas. Whichever one the person sees first might make them favor that one over the other. Inferno precedes Hellseeker historically but given the later sequels don't number anymore, plenty of people may not have watched in order.
