- A tussock is the classification for a certain biological family of moths. Silent Hill features a moth-like boss, the Floatstinger, which could suggest that the song was once meant to be played during the fight, or to simply allude to the creature. The tussock family's scientific name, Lymantriidae, is derived from the term lymantria, meaning "defiler", something that connects to the Floatstinger's method of attack. Many tussock species also resemble the Floatstinger, specifically the satin moth.
