Lying Figures are skulking humanoid monsters in Silent Hill 2.
The Lying Figure is the first creature James Sunderland encounters, after following trails of blood through Silent Hill. He confronts it in a closed tunnel after retrieving the radio, where it is seen feeding on a corpse.
They also appear in the Born from a Wish scenario and torment Maria.
Lying Figures appear on an alternate cover of Sinner's Reward, Issue 4 and in the short film Fukuro as well.
The Lying Figure should not be confused with the Straightjacket in Silent Hill: Origins, to which it shares many similarities, but the latter has some significant changes.
An incarnation of the Lying Figure monster appears in the Silent Hill film, credited as the Armless Man. This version of the Armless Man likely represents Alessa Gillespie's hospitalization.
