We’ve heard a lot of chatter about the height of a certain horror villain recently, but an unknown Silent Hill fan wants you to remember that Pyramid Head was here first. The apparently fan-owned website Silenthill.com now shows a picture of Silent Hill 2’s Pyramid Head with a height chart for scale, which confirms that he is actually nine meters tall. The message “he was first” is included in the picture, which makes the intended effect quite clear.
Your love for Lady Dimitrescu is loud and clear. 👒
Here is a message from RE Village art director Tomonori Takano, along with a very curious fact you may have wondered about: pic.twitter.com/Lj4m5pN2dJ

This is clearly a response to the popularity of Resident Evil Village’s Lady Dimitrescu, a very tall vampire lady who really wants to kill the main character Ethan Winters. The game’s art director Tomonori Takano confirmed that Lady Dimitrescu is about nine and a half meters tall when you include a hat and high heels, which triggered a flood of fan jokes and interest.
While the unknown tab certainly has a point about Pyramid Head, it is likely that Konami or another party may want this domain back at some point. Recently, serial composer Akira Yamaoka gave an interview in which he said that a new project he is working on is “what you hope to hear about.” The interview was pulled shortly after the clip went viral. However, rumors of a restart of Silent Hill have been swirling for years at this point, and are being dismissed again and again by Konami, so it is unclear if this is reliable.
