Downpour Easter Eggs & References
Report filed by Jul 30th, 2015

Juke Box
In the diner, you can get some money out of the cash register and use it
on the jukebox to play the theme from the first game. The juke box also
resembles the juke box in the hotel in SH2. The coins can also come in
handy in other parts of the games.

The DJ
When talking to you, the DJ plays a few songs from previous games.

While these also are related to at least one of the bosses, they
do remind me of Alessa, and the wheelchairs scattered throughout the other
games, especially SH1 and SH3. Of course, SH4 had wheelchairs as enemies,
and the doll in the wheelchair, too.

The Radio
The first gas station radio plays “Magdalene” from SH2, but only a few bars.

On the topic of radios, sort of, there is a walkie talkie on the table in
the diner. In Silent Hill 1, a diner is the first building you’re in, where
the game really starts, and you find a radio on the table. In Downpour, you
come to a diner and there is a walkie talkie.

TVs were also pretty important in previous games. There is one in the diner
basement that Murphy can interact with. It just plays static, but even this
could be a reference to the radio in earlier games.

In previous titles, there were a lot of dogs, many of them either
dead or they were enemies. There was a disembodied dog head under
the basketball court in SH1, dog enemies in 1/3/4/SHH, and a lot
of dog references in SHSM (Cheryl’s pet dog, the dog run over by
Harry, the dog toys, etc.)

In Downpour, Murphy passes a “Have you seen this dog?” poster
in the beginning of the game, on a gas station wall. It also
brings to mind the missing cat poster in SHSM. In the hotel,
there is a dead dog laid out on one of the beds right before
you get to the room with the safe. This is also reminiscent
of the dead dog in the restaurant in SH3. Later, you see a
dog in a police car that is killed by a monster.

Silent Hill 4
In Pearl Creek apartments, one of the rooms is exactly like
Henry’s room, complete with the chained-up door.

Murphy’s cell number is 302, which was also Henry’s apartment

Silent Hill 1
There is a Queen Burger, and there is an Agloaphotis reference
in a side mission.

Silent Hill 2
A flyer in Devil’s Pit asks, Hey kids, is Silent Hill a special
place for you? Reference is to Silent Hill being James’ and
Mary’s “special place.”

There is a Welcome to Shepherd’s Glen picture.

There is a book in the library by someone named Holloway, a
reference to Elle and the judge.

There is also a Homecoming save logo thing in the Otherworld
St Maria’s, on a bell.

One of the prisoners in the Dead Man’s Hand sidequest resembles
Adam Shepherd. Additionally, there was a dead man’s hand in
the first game’s science lab.

Shattered Memories
In the theater, there are posters that were playing in the
Cinema in Shattered Memories. Shattered Memories had four
possible movies playing, and the movie playing changed based
on your actions in the game.

“Demon Samael”
There is an image of the last boss from SH1 labeled “demon
Samael” in the Centennial building. Of course, it is implied that
this boss isn’t really Samael. The same boss is also referenced
in Shattered Memories. In the school, one of the possible images
on the projector is the SH1 final boss.

Shepherd House
A picture of this is also in the Centennial Building.

Real people
MENTON3: A newspaper clipping mentions a tourist named Menton,
referring to Menton3 who illustrated the Past Life comics.

RYALL: The name of the prison is taken from Chris Ryall, who
worked on Past Life, as well.

ROBERT BLOCH: Some of the orphanage notes are signed by a
Roberta Bloch. There was a street in SH1 named after Bloch,
as well. He is the author of Psycho. It is probably also a
reference to the character of the same name in the film
From Beyond, but given the existence of Bloch St. in SH1,
I’d say it’s a reference to both.

Surprise ending
Contains various characters from SH2 and SH3. This is
obtained by completing the Digging up the past sidequest
your second time through the game.

Queen Burger
This fast food joint also appeared in the first game.
It’s also a reference to Burger King.

There is a painting of a girl dressed like Alessa in one
of the rooms in the hotel. It is titled “When you lose
someone you love.” It’s hanging on a wall above a bed.

Law & Order: SVU
Sewell, the prison guard you meet right in the beginning
of the game, bears a large resemblance to Detective Stabler,
played by Christopher Meloni in Law & Order: Special Victims

Additionally, a memo regarding Murphy’s son mentioned an
Elliot Benson. The two main detectives on SVU are named
Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler. It’s also worth mentioning
that in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, one of Cybil’s looks
bears a strong resemblance to Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay)
from SVU.

The name “Napier” could be a reference to the Joker
from Batman, whose real name was Jack Napier.

“Born Free” playing in the diner level could be a reference to the
show, which is likely because Daniel Licht is known for his work
on Dexter. However,it could also be just a reference to Murphy
being in prison.

Past Life
The Silent Hill Past Life comics have tie-ins with the game, and
were both written by Tom Waltz. Howard appears in the comics
as well as in the game.

Murphy can flush toilets, probably to bring to mind the
importance of bathrooms in previous games. SH2 starts in a bathroom,
and James reaches into one to get a wallet. There is a bathroom
easter egg in SH3. Henry isn’t “brave enough” to check out his own
toilet in SH4, etc. Bathrooms are also pretty important in the first
game, because Harry finds a lot of items in them, like shotgun, ammo,
puzzle items, and one of the bathrooms in the school works like an
elevator. Heather refuses to stick her hand in the toilet, and also
finds items in bathrooms. Besides Henry’s own toilet, there’s the
mannequin thing holding a coin in the subway toilet, and Henry
spends the first half of the game using the bathroom hole in the
wall to transport to different areas.

In the Making of Silent Hill 2, toilets are said to be important
in Japanese horror. That’s why that game starts off in the toilets.
It also mentions that the toilets were the first area modeled for
the game. The James/toilet scene later in the game has become
infamous, since no other characters would stick their hand in a
nasty toilet.

Roger Howarth
Murphy bears a striking resemblance to actor Roger Howarth, an actor
who’s appeared in many tv shows (mainly soap operas) and played Todd Manning
on One Life to Live and then the same character on General Hospital,
described by wikipedia as “often selfish and acting the villain but
also compassionate and devoted to protecting his loved ones.”

One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest
A novel by Ken Kesey set in a mental asylum. The main character’s last
name is McMurphy, and the institution is called Pendleton.

This is an important theme, but I will add more later.

Secret messages
Usually, the loading screen shows normal hints about enemies, items,
and so on, but sometimes it shows creepy messages:
* Everyone knows what you did.
* They’re in the room. You just cant see them.
* Stop lying.
* They never loved you.
* Are you sure you’re alone?
* She’s lying to you.
* I know you’re lying.
* It knows you’re alone.
Bonus Weapons
The following codes can be used on the green lockers in the
game to obtain bonus weapons.
* Unlock Nail Gun and Double Headed Axe: 171678
* Unlock .45 Pistol and Baseball Bat: 353479
* Unlock Rifle and Golf Club: 911977

Prison Break
from Anthony Bregante:
“One Easter egg I found that I didn’t see in the guide was
the Psychological Report found in the prison. It references
a Dr. Wayne Sara,which is a shout out to the actress Sara
Wayne Callies who played Dr. Sara Tancredi on Prisonbreak.”
