Pyramid Head, also known as the Red Pyramid Thing, is a monster (and in two cases, a duo of monsters) that debuted in Silent Hill 2 as arguably the main antagonist. Pyramid Head is one of the most well-known and iconic monsters in the Silent Hill series.

It is likelier that Pyramid Head is a type of monster rather than a single entity. In Silent Hill: Homecoming, a monster known as the Bogeyman closely resembles (or actually is) Pyramid Head, which furthers the theory that he has multiple incarnations and is frequently associated with feelings of intense remorse.

The Child's Drawing also states the Bogeyman is also known as the Shadowed One. He is in both of the Silent Hill films as Red Pyramid, and appears in other various Silent Hill media. They are usually portrayed as, at the most basic, violent monsters.

A deeper meaning given to them explains their existences as punishers and executioners. In Silent Hill 2, one Pyramid Head proves his acts of violence are not aimed solely at sinful humans, as he has also brought harm to the other creatures that inhabit Silent Hill.
