WARNING: Spoilers of a game released in 2003.
I'm writing this to summarize the information about the influence of Buddhism in Silent Hill 3. I was reading the wiki and I found out on the Closer article that the creature possess the text "南無妙法蓮華經" written in the head. In Buddhism, the rebirth life gets affected by the past actions, this is known as karma. In the case of Heather, she has not solved his problems with the God of Silent Hill in her "womb" and the cult of the town, so this themes appear in her new life. The book even goes further in saying that the story is inevitably similar to her past life, from the first game, and explicitly mentions a cycle of rebirth, and states that Valtiel is an angel that governs this cycle. It adds tha…
Hello there. I wanted to share a theory I developed about the God character from the Silent Hill franchise, taking into consideration the Silent Hill 2 mythology.
It is based on the name of the lake of Silent Hill, Toluca Lake. The second game claims that the town known as Silent Hill originally had a different name, but that name was changed to "The Place of Silent Spirits" and finally to Silent Hill. Here's the link to the memo.
My theory starts claiming that the original name of the town was Toluca. If a town is called Toluca, then the lake of that town could be named Toluca Lake.
Now here's the important fact: the name Toluca means "The place of the god Tolo".
If the town was originally called Toluca, and Toluca is confirmed to mean "place…
Started replaying the series last month after I got myself a PS3 and jailbroke it, and this is the order I've chosen thus far:
- SH0 (PS2 port)
- SH4 (I'm here at time of writing)
I'm leaving Shattered Memories out, I think, because it's noncanonical and is just a retelling of the first game, but I may change my mind and play it last. I also don't have a PS Vita so can't play BoM, but we sell them where I work so I'm planning on grabbing one at some point literally for the sole purpose of BoM (and remote play).
It's done nothing to change my ranking of which games I prefer, which is on my profile, but I did enjoy SH0 more this time than I did when I played it on my PSP when I was younger. But I'm definitely having fun! And am also en…
Hello Silent Hill Wiki, I'm Thatawesomecat, your Wiki Manager here! As Jr Mime had to step down, I'll be acting as a liaison between you and Fandom Staff. For any questions or issues related to editing here, please feel free to reach out to me!
You can read more about Fandom Wiki Managers here: https://community.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:MisterWoodhouse/Introducing_the_Fandom_Wiki_Managers_and_Content_Team
I will be around to check your Recent Changes occasionally, but if you need me, please feel free to send me a message on my talk page here. I look forward to working with you!
Heya guys, I think a great apology is due on my part for how unattached and lazy I've been when helping in caring for our wiki. After our name was soiled in the eyes of pretty much the entire horror community (thanks, blogs), I've been extremely passionate on keeping it as tidy and reliable as possible, but over the past few months, I know my attention has really strayed. I'm back in school, so I've been pretty focused on that, and now other, more important demands have entered my life. However, I don't want to excuse my negligence when it's my job to keep this wiki as perhaps the first place a person goes when they have questions about this spectacular series.
That being said, I'm going to be doing my best to become more active again (but …
Trying to update my list, so what's the worst out there? Right now I've got it as the 2019 Jacob's Ladder. I could also see an argument for Old Boy being a Silent Hill movie in the same way people count stuff like Shutter Island, in which case the American remake is a strong contender.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 15 years or so, I'm sure you've read Lost Memories: Silent Hill Chronicle, the special document contained on the reverse side of the Silent Hill 3 Official Perfect Capture Guide. The document is the first concentrated effort by Team Silent staff to compile all of the information from the first 3 Silent Hill games and its related media into one source, including several new details that hadn't been revealed until its release.
The document has been presented in many different formats and languages over the years, but one thing I've noticed has never really been too elaborated upon is James Sunderland's career. It's translated pretty clearly on most sources as "clerk". Now, while "clerk" is corr…
here is the first of the few creatures encountered by steven wilcox, in my silent hill fan story
So! I went to an arcade today and it was super fun. I got first place on Silent Scopes 2 (good old 2000 Konami) and played DDR:SN which was awesome. It had Your Rain on it, which surprised me, but it was awesome. I did terribly because I'm bad at rythm games, but I had a load of fun. How are yall?
I mentioned in my recent announce that we now have 8 infobox templates that we can use to replace the old infoboxes on our pages. So I'd thought i'd give a more detailed update on this, specifically about pages left to update.
Template:Infobox_Character - Character Infoboxes - Done
You can use this to replace game, film and comic book character templates
Use the following links to find pages that use the old templates (makes it easier to find what we need to replace)
Not sure what the intention behind writing this is, but I think I want to have the plan written down somewhere in case it actually happens one day and to get feedback from the people who'd be most affected by this kind of decision.

Fast forward to 2038 when Konami is finally forced to declare bankruptcy. They start selling off their IP to dig out of that hole because fucking what are they doing with any of it to begin with? Kojima gets Sony to help him buy back Metal Gear just to fuck with them, either Nintendo or Capcom or maybe even just Netflix straight up goes for Castlevania, etc.
So here I come, rockstar game developer with three succes…
Hi! Sorry I’ve been gone for a while, life is crazy and kinda bullshit. I hope yall’re doing well! Happy New Year :)
Haha well since other folks were showing off their gifts I guess I'll show mine. I had a friend get me this goofy-ass Silent Hill 2 dad hat with my cast favorites on it. Personally I'm lovin' it, whadda you guys think?
i'm 222 edits in, 1/3 of the way to officially becoming a demon, so that's cool! (bad) joke obviously, but just wanted to say thanks for being a cool community and creating such a detailed site. y'all're* really nice & I'm glad I joined :)
- double contractions are cool and probably valid
We did sibling gifts and my brother got me a Halo of the Sun necklace, figured I'd share it here.
Hey all! Good morning (if it's morning for you) Today's xmas eve and it's holiday break, so that's nice. I'm gonna be spending it with family mostly, maybe hanging out/gaming with a friend, which is exciting. I hope y'all have someone to spend it with, too. I should also be hearing back from my dream school very soon, probably today or tomorrow. So that's super nerve-wracking. I've heard back from and been accepted to 3 schools so far, so I'm kinda proud about that, but this one is my top choice so I'm ff nervous. But, regardless of if my hopes and dreams get shattered by a rejection letter, happy holidays!
First of all:
- x6 Bullet adjust is preferred!
- Remember the entire game. (Of course.)
- Never EVER use the Shotgun (Excluding bosses!) otherwise missed shots (no aiming shots) will increase too high and ruin your score.
- Only use special weapons when you have enough uses for them. (Uses can be earned by beating the game over and over again.)
- I prefer the first save should be in the infirmary room in the school as for new people in hard mode will have big troubles due to the bullet spongey grey childs. And the second save should be in nowhere.
- You should start doing shooting kills once you get the rifle.
- Stomping on enemies counts as melee kills, duh. Atleast not on SH3. I think.
Well that's all I can offer. Now here comes the requirements! (Stau…
So I'm playing Homecoming, but had to go through the graveyard without a map. and then all the progress saved to my brother's account. and then the game didnt save when I got to a new chapter. what game doesn't do that?? So, fuck me apparently. Do I start over on Nightmare on my own account or just refinish Missing Persons on my brothers and move on again?
This summer I had to read Pride and Prejudice and write about it. One of the topics/specific assignments was “creative choice” so I decided to compare P&P with another source, and I chose SH4. I also called Lydia “trampy” and got away with it, and said she had “daddy issues” in another. Anyways: “Lydia’s elopement is like Silent Hill 4: The Room- challenges are unexpected and come from the past, and characters are stuck because of others’ actions. Lydia is stuck in a family that doesn’t much care about her, so Wickham is her escape; Henry Townshend, The Room’s protagonist, is physically trapped in his apartment by chains, so fighting monsters is the escape. While in Austen’s novel, challenges can come in the form of trampy daughters running a…
A game I play (Identity V) has new skins they just debuted and they're a crossover with their characters and Ito characters and it's pretty exciting (+ expensive tbh)
they have Souichi(the little shit) and The Intersection Bishounen (forgive my spelling)
put here because it doesnt seem to warrant a discussion but it's still cool; I'll remove it if its an issue
I have a slightly-less-than-legal download of the RAGE mix of Your Rain and my phone messed up. The song’s volume mutes and then spikes and it pauses randomly? I think I cursed my phone, please send a holy candle ;/
I have holiday break next week, so that's nice! Im thinking of using the week to go through and beat Homecoming as it's the only game I have so far. I also have a friend who lets me play her SH: Downpour but the progress syncs to her profile + I dont have Xbox gold :-/ I have started Homecoming but the combat is kind of tricky (learning curve, probably) and the manual save is killing me, as I hate not being able to load where I left off. I'm currently still near the beginning. Specifically, in the Missing Persons chapter, right before the coffin puzzle. Although, Im thinking of starting over so I can do it in a more linear path rather than with large time gaps. Sorry for the longish post. Any advice or thoughts?
I know I jus made a discussion post related to this, but.. I love OSTs a lot, specifically vocal ones (though I’m partial to Snow Flower, too.) I listen to Shot Down in Flames, Your Rain + its RAGE mix, Love Psalm, Now We’re Free, When You’re Gone, Hell Frozen Rain, One More Soul to the Call, and the Machine Head mix of Alex’s Theme way too often. I also may or may not have a playlist just made of Not Tomorrow covers.. They’re such good songs, with or without the series. (Though some don’t make much sense without the games.) I feel like OSTs are so crucial to gameplay experience and I appreciate them. Similar to the discussion post: which is your favorite song? Do you like OSTs to begin with?
I wish the SH games were redone to improve graphics and, honestly, voice acting. Specifically SH1 has very grainy and rough imaging. I love the series and plot and wish the visuals were equal in quality. Anyone else?
The amount of rank stars generated on the results screen in Silent Hill are listed below. These numbers and equations were taken from the Silent Hill Official Guidebook (Complete Edition) and Silent Hill Perfect Navigation Book guidebooks.
- 1 Overview
- 2 Scoring
- 2.1 Walking/running distance
- 2.2 Defeated enemy
- 2.3 Shooting style

- 3 Examples
- 3.1 Japanese release
Each value must be added together and the sum determines the amount of stars earned.
In Japanese releases, decimal numbers are rounded down before being calculated (i.e. 50.5 = 50). Also, large stars represent 10 points, while small stars represent 1 point (i.e. 46 = ★★★★★★★★★★).
In Western releases, decimal numbers are rounded up before being calculated (i.e. 50.5 = 51) and large stars represe…
Silent Hill 2 is considered by many to be the gem of the Silent Hill franchise. Likewise, its main antagonist, Pyramid Head, is just as beloved by fans of the series, if not more. Due to the admiration and success of the character, he has appeared several times throughout the series in many different forms, has represented Silent Hill in various crossovers, and has been continued to be drawn regularly by the man who created him, Masahiro Ito. A common thread in these varied appearances is the diversity of his names. He has been referred to as the "Bogeyman", "Red Pyramid", and even the "Holy Apostle". However, one set of names in particular stand out among the rest—the names he was given from his first appearance in the franchise.
Many of us a…

Along with writing the actual story,I also have a draft of basic notes to run over.So, if I need to add or change anything in the process,I can.A lot of time and effort goes into my drafts because I love to go in depth.I can give myself notes as to what the characters are doing, what they are saying, and what else is going on.
As of now,the official story stands at four chapter with a fifth following.However, I am in the sixth chapter in my rough draft.So, please, follow along the journey of Steven Wilcox, and also the journey I go through in order to provide a fun, terrifying, and exciting adventure.
If you think this project has any hope at all and think others would like it, too, then spread word about it.It would be a world of …
I really want this meeting I asked for to be held as soon as possible. Please comment here what would be a convenient time for you, and what medium would you like to discuss things with, i.e the chat here in the wiki, Facebook, or something else.
i don' want to hold off on this any longer.
This is a fan made project produced by myself and an awesome artist named Joash Britto.I came up with the idea of a proper Silent Hill story, after the initial cancellation of Silent Hill P.T.It seemed as though everyone had given up on the series after the announcement and pretty much left it at that, but that's where I came up with the idea of adding another entry into the series.Obviously saddened by the series sudden and abrupt end, things seemed bleak and hopeless.I thought that if I can create a written entry into the series for all of the community to enjoy, then what's the harm?This project is all about getting back to basics.It will include many details that the original games had, being combat, item management,…
Just a thought I'd post a little site update for some of the changes this weekend:
- New character infobox template and .css layout finished
(well pretty much)
- Character Infobox Template
- More info on this can be found further below
- New bureaucrat, admin and site moderator page widgets based
off existing template. Please add them if you don't have one on
your user page. I want to make some minor tweaks, but they are
usable as is.
- Bureaucrat Widget
- Admin Widget
- Site Moderator Widget
- Some minor changes to the background, site colors and theme
with help from Riley Heligo & Staurophobia
- This is by no means finished! So apologies if some of the site looks a little odd during transition
- Improved visibility on current administration/moderation team/…
It's been a while since I've logged in.. and looking through the list of available admins, a fair few have been inactive, myself included, for a fair amount of time! Not helped by the fact that Silent Hill has pretty much ground to a halt over the last few years (thanks Konami...)
This place has a special place in my heart.... so I intend to be available over the next few months to help out with anything.
First though... for those of you, new or old, who are still around... A couple of questions...
- What other Admins are still regularly active?
- Who are our current frequent content updaters (you can list yourself ofc)?
- Is anything broken on the wiki, that needs fixing which is outside your ability/wiki rights?
Additionally if you a…

The most iconic and well known figure from the series, Pyramid Head is also one of the most misunderstood. All too often, he is reduced to a mindlessly violent and abusive creature that actually perpetuates the behaviors his character was created to condemn.
His actions in Silent Hill 2 are specific to his role as James' punisher. The crimes he commits are meant to force James to remember his own darker impulses and actions, and those crimes are later punished when Pyramid Head kills himself. They are not characteristic of him in general - they are specific to his interaction with Jame…
HenryXEileen- rated PG-13 for Swearing, Violent descriptions/Imagery, and mentions of sex. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think...if there's still people on here...and if there are...I might post my psychoanalysis of Murphy if anyone is interested, but for now, here's this:
It had been nine months since she had been attacked by the man in the coat. Nine long months of healing and adjusting. Her arm and cracked eye socket had healed, but sometimes Eileen had problems with her vision. The gashes had scarred over along with the numbers on her back. Those fucking numbers- the constant reminder of the horror that pushed her towards Henry.
Henry was agreeable when she suggested moving in together and splitting the rent on a…
I was expecting more creativity on my own behalf when it came to writing, and secretly asking myself for my first blog entry not to be about Walter Sullivan because that'd just be too obvious, being that I've clearly indicated him as my favorite character, but honestly, I can't think of a better topic to write about as a start.
When I first read about Walter, I kept thinking about how he was a cold-blooded murderer, and how his acts could not be justified, being that he did kill innocent children and animals, but reading about his past and how hurt he was, I kept thinking about how it's Psychology 101, it's a common theme for serial killers to let their childhood form their adulthood, but was I merely trying to make excuses for his trauma to b…
I'm not sure how to go about adding this information onto the articles themselves, so I'm using this blog to archive parts of the Silent Hill game scripts.
Hey guys, as some of you may have noticed, the wiki has been seeing a fair amount of spam in the Discussions Board from random sock accounts posting absolute nonsense. I know it isn't necessarily a huge deal or anything, but it does irk me that it seems to be a continuous affair.
So, I decided to create this blog to see if we could brainstorm ideas on how to prevent it, so the admins don't have to go through and delete each thread individually. If anyone has any knowledge in how we might go about this, please chime in with your thoughts - I haven't much experience when it comes to this sort of thing, and all of the individuals who might aren't always super active, so I figured the best thing to do would be to take it to you guys.
I am not sure if everyone was aware of what went on a few months back, but our good admin AlessaGillespie is on a much needed extended vacation and has thus handed the reins of the wiki over to myself. This means that as of this moment, I am the only active Bureaucrat admin.
What does this mean? Well, it essentially means she's "passed" ownership over until she either feels inclined to come back, or another crat admin comes in from their VERY extended vacation and tells me they are going to be active again. This also means that when it comes down to it, if I feel it absolutely necessary, I will supercede all decisions and release a final one.
Now, things will have to be fairly extreme for this to happen. I do not like to overrule the other…
I was pretty distracted for the time being due to personal reasons, but I'm back. I'll be making minor grammar corrections.
Yesterday i was talking whit a friend about Silent hill, when i mentioned to him that i wanted to contribute to This wiki, he told me that the Silent hill Wiki had a "bad" community. he wanted to Troll the wikia editing the pages to offend some admin he called a Nutcase. During the Afternoon and maybe even before he had done some vandalism and then he was banned, I suppose. I know that because when I tried to do my first acces to the wikia I was "blocked" because my IP was used by some Douchebag who vandalized the wikia .. And that's was because he used my internet connection to do his Vandalism. I told him that the only reaction he would gain from his Douchebaggery was a Ban, but he wasn't listening, he was giggling about how he was …
Hey guys, I thought the old theme was getting a bit stale so I decided it could do with a change. I picked the Halo of the Sun because it was the first thing which came to mind, but the theme is in no way fixed. So, any thoughts for what the theme should be? Let me know your thoughts.
It's me Gjlewis - I'm well alive and I'm back. It's been a very long time. I already made my new account back when after the hacking incident of the FNaF Wiki last year at August causes my first account's password to be scrambled up afterwards, and I'm forced to create a new account. I've been super busy contributing in other Wikis (especially The Binding of Isaac Wiki), and I finally want to re-join this Wiki since I really missed you guys.
Silent Hill is such a magnificent horror game, and despite Silent Hills's cancellation from last year, we hope if there will be another Silent Hill game which wouldn't be as bad as Downpour. Also, I'm sorry for expressing my anger on the forum thread to show my reaction about Silent Hills's cancellation last y…
I see that the wiki has had an... interesting... day. I have already removed and/or edited all abusive posts, and I would like to remind everyone here that the Silent Hill wiki has rules in place governing the behavior of its users. We welcome debates and discussions, but antagonistic and abusive postings will not be allowed. This means no name calling, personal attacks, or offensive remarks aimed at minority groups or the mentally disabled. I have seen several such remarks made over the past hours, and let me be clear that this will not continue to happen. Abusive posters will be banned and their posts removed from here on out. This extends to our chat room: no personal attacks or open mocking of others will be allowed in chat either. Simp…
When I try to move pictures around, like in my Profile, they end up on top of each other. How do I align them to be on the side?
Alright, so I thought of this awhile back, and working on the Maria page reminded me of it again. I'm sure someone may have already pointed this out but here we go.
Maria's being is sort of left a mystery. How she was formed, who she is, her properties. She has memories of working at Heaven's Night, and of Laura. So the two main theories seem to be that either a) Maria is completely made up or b) Maria is a real person that Silent Hill is using. (B seems to be the one I see the most.)
But I think both ideas may be wrong.
I think Maria was created just like Pyramid Head was.
Ito has confirmed that the town has a large impact on the form of the monsters, not just the person's mind. And Pyramid Head takes the form of the executioners that were th…
Silent Hills wouldn't be that good though... That Walking Dead guy is like an action icon, I feel like bringing him to the franchise would also bring the action-focused gameplay to it. I mean, the protagonists of the Silent Hill franchise are portrayed as "everymen", like common people who could even be your neighbor, there's nothing special about them, they're pretty common. Norman Reedus is like this badass figure because of The Walking Dead so I think the producers would explore this on the game and it would totally ruin the franchise, just like Resident Evil. I feel bad that they cancelled the game but it's also a good thing because we won't see that guy in the game. Nothing against him, he is a pretty good actor but he just wouldn't f…
