Silent Hill Games
|Trevor the lovable trucker, is forced through the town by Alessa and his haunted past,but can only see the darkness of the town via what?||The Many Faces of "Silent Hill"
mirrors . He uses mirrors to traverse the world of Silent Hill, unknowingly being led along by Alessa.
Director. He is the director of Alchmilla hospital and supplier of the drug White Claudia. He is also the one responsible for the care of Alessa, but he passes that job on to the poor nurse Lisa.
Money. He believed that the order would get no where without money, and he was right. Unfortunately, he was outnumbered by the those who believed otherwise.
|Poor Alessa, she lived such a hard life, then as if to add insult to injury, she is sacrificed in a (painful)ritual that didn't even work. Now I can't quite remember, how old was she when this happened?||The Many Faces of "Silent Hill"
7. It was her very own mother who sacrificed her, but knowing that she would give birth to a god, Alessa split her soul in half and created a new self, Cheryl. Cheryl returned to Silent Hill when she was 7 and Alessa is 14, so 14 minus 7 is 7.
A pizza van. It's never shown during actual game play, but we see this on the making of DVD and in the games intro movie. Perhaps he borrowed it from work...
|Walter Sullavin grew up in 'Wish House' back in Silent Hill but would make weekly visits to South Ashfield Apartments and soon makes a new friend, Eileen. What did she give him?||The Many Faces of "Silent Hill"
A Doll. She gave him a doll because she didn't want him to be sad. Walter mentions this on the stairway in the Alternate Ashfield apartment building on your first time there. He puts a doll next to him and tells you that Eileen gave it to him when they were younger and that you could have it now. You can either take the doll or not, but it has a bit of an effect on how some of the game runs. Truthfully, it's not worth it.
|Life just isn't fair as Angela Orosco learned at a very young age and sometimes things just happen that you can no longer deal with. How does Angela decide to end her own life?||The Many Faces of "Silent Hill"
Unknown. Although many people say that she took her own life via fire (She is seen walking up a stairway of fire, signifying her death), but it is never actually proven. The stair scene is more metaphorical then fact.

3. When she was 3, Cheryl's adoptive mother (her name isn't mentioned) died of an illness, but we don't know which one; perhaps the one that killed Mary...
|Frank Sunderland, the superintendent of the South Ashfield Apartments is related to another Silent Hill character, James Sunderland. What was Frank to James again?||The Many Faces of "Silent Hill"
His father. Henry mentions this when he is looking at a picture in his apartment that was given to him by Frank. Frank had told him that "His son and daughter in law disappeared in Silent Hill years ago." This is later confirmed by the producer.
The water tower prison. You don't see the double head until you get to the water tower prison. They don't make any noise until they attack you, so it'a kind of a surprise.
In "Silent Hill 4" Walter Sullivan's 7th and 8th victims Billy and Miriam Locane they were killed while playing in the street, and according to the newspaper clip Billy was killed with and axe and Miriam was dismembered. In death they fused together and became the Double Head Victim; a very hard enemy to kill.
Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear. Oh, I forgot your name.. In the mens locker room you get a call from an unknown person who sings happy birthday to you. This takes place in The Dark Brookhaven Hospital, on the second floor.
Lakeside Amusement Park. Robbie the Rabbit is the mascot for the Lakeside Amusement Park and he makes his first appearance in "Silent Hill 3" in Heather's dream. He's sitting there on the bench with blood around his mouth and Heather makes a comment wondering if it's still alive.
All of these (Pipes, Pistols, Scalpels). The original nurses had parasites in the them; that's what gave the hunchback look to them. In the first "Silent Hill", they would slash at you with the scalpels, then in "Silent Hill 2" they would try and bash you with their lead pipes. When the third game came out they would shoot at you with their guns.
"Silent Hill 2". James in "Silent Hill 2" first sees Pyramidhead through the grates at the apartment complex. Also later in the game you have a mini boss fight with Pyramidhead in room 307 which James fires off a couple of rounds that don't harm him.
Cybil Bennett. Cybil Bennett is a boss fight in the amusement park on the carousel later in the game. In the beginning of the game when Harry passed out and woke up in the restaurant, Cybil was in the restaurant with him. He explained why he was there and that his daughter had gone missing and that he needed her help. After hearing his story Cybil gave Harry a pistol and she was on her way.
YES. Centralia, Pennsylvania is the name of a town that has had undergound coal mine fires for more many years. It's got everything besides the creepy monsters, but it's a real place. The video game is loosely based on this town, and as of reports from 2007, their were eleven people that still live in Centralia, PA.
True. Harry Mason's wife died of an incurable illness several years before the game. Harry and his daughter Cheryl decide to go to "Silent Hill" for vacation, because that's where Harry and his now dead wife used to go. Harry, right outside of "Silent Hill", swerved off the road to avoid hitting Alessa Gillespie. His daughter then disappeared and the survival horror began.
This all happens in the introduction. After he awoke he chased a little girl thought to be Cheryl, then got attacked. Now in the restaurant with Cybil Bennett the police officer, Harry told his story and introduced himself.
Brown. Cheryl, in the beginning of the game, has what looks like black hair but it is in fact brown. The screenshot of the game clearly shows that Cheryl has brown hair instead of black hair.
16. Cynthia was the first victim that Henry encountered during the course of the game but despite his efforts her assumption of that the whole thing was dream ended in her being killed. When you encounter Cynthia's ghost later on in the game her special ability is that she slithers across the floor but cannot get up.
4 . "Silent Hill 4: The Room" is the first "Silent Hill" to not have a UFO ending or a joke ending of any kind. The four endings you can receive are entitled Escape, Mother, Eileen's Death and 21 Sacraments.
South Ashfield . None of this game takes place directly in the town of "Silent Hill" but there are areas that are very close such as "Silent Hill" Forest and the Water Prison under Toluca Lake which is also part of "Silent Hill". The reason for the game not taking place most of the time in "Silent Hill" was because it was originally planned to be the beginning of a new series of its own but it was decided it couldn't be sold to the public without an established background.
Wheelchairs. Wheelchairs, after having a disturbing role as a prop in "Silent Hill" and "Silent Hill 3" became an unstoppable enemy which could only be delayed by shooting them before they resumed their attacks. Unlike the appearance of the Wheelchairs in "Silent Hill" and "Silent Hill 3", where they were from the dark mind of Alessa Gillespie, in "Silent Hill 4: The Room" the Wheelchairs are from the mind of Walter Sullivan because they are an effective tool of fear in the correct setting.
Hometown. Hometown is the song played over the credits if you obtain the normal ending along with a picture of Heather visiting her fathers grave. The song was sung by Joe Romersa and composed by Akira Yamaoka. Akira Yamaoka not only is the composer to "Silent Hill" games he has creative input, which allows him to put together a musical score he feels is more than appropriate.
3 . "Silent Hill 3" was the first "Silent Hill" game to only have definite good or bad endings instead of having endings that have pros and cons. The game has two serious endings entitled Normal and Possession and one joke ending called Revenge which is the traditional UFO ending.
Missionary. Heather fights the Missionary after following a trail from her father's apartment up to the roof. There, after confronting Claudia Wolf, who tells you that if you survive she will see you in Silent Hill, the Missionary attacks. The Missionary can be killed by targeting the weak spot on his back. This is best done with the shotgun.
Pistol Silencer. In the construction site in "Silent Hill 3" there is a corner of a wall which appears to be bleeding, if you proceed to break the wall with a strong melee weapon you will discover a silencer which can be attached to the handgun to suppress the noise of firing which doesn't attract other monsters.
It starts to show it true form. The more of "Silent Hill 2" you complete the more the town starts reverting back to what it truly looks like. An example of this is after finding more evidence of what happens to Mary at the Lakeside Hotel the more it starts to look like the burnt down building it is. Also James' letter from Mary gradually disappears as you solve the mystery showing you that James is imagining what he is seeing around the town.
6 . Three possible endings can be seen after completing the game for the first time, while the other three can only be seen after acquiring items that are unlocked through completing the game once and then using the items when needed. Four of the endings were serious and were called Leave, In Water, Rebirth and Maria while two endings were jokes and called Dog and UFO.
David Lynch. One of the David Lynch references in "Silent Hill 2" is when the main character meets a woman that looks like his dead wife and afterwards finding a video tape that proves he killed his wife, this is in reference to "Lost Highway". Another reference is when James Sunderland hides is a closet after finding the Pyramid Head raping one of the monsters, this is in reference to "Blue Velvet".
Good- Saving Kaufmann only. The ending titled Good is proven to be the correct ending in "Silent Hill" by the process of elimination. Obviously the Bad ending, where you fail to save either Cybil of Kaufmann, cannot be the correct ending as Harry Mason dies in that ending while he is still alive 17 years later in "Silent Hill 3". Bad+ cannot be the correct ending as it ends with Harry Mason being trapped in "Silent Hill" and also resulting in his death. Good+ is proven to be an incorrect ending as in "Silent Hill 3" there is no mention of Cybil from Heather or Harry Mason's diaries which tells you he escaped "Silent Hill" on his own. This leaves Good, in which Harry Mason at the end is given a new child by the final boss and manages to escape from "Silent Hill".
5 . There are four serious endings and one joke ending that can be found in "Silent Hill". The serious endings are titled Bad, Bad+, Good and Good+ while the joke one is called UFO. Bad is the easiest to get as it requires no extra exploring while Good+ and UFO require extensive exploring and experimentation.
