Pyramid Head was once the executioner in the old cult of Silent Hill. James Sunderland's subconscious used the image of him to punish him for what he had done. He was seen throughout Silent Hill, stalking James tenaciously. He later started to torment as well in the hospital. In a narrow corridor, James and Maria were being chased by Pyramid Head, and attempt to make it to the elevator. James makes it to the elevator, but Maria doesn't. As James tried to open the door, Maria was impaled by Pyramid Head, and screamed in agony as the elevator door closed.

Pyramid Head appeared in the Labyrinth of the Toluca prison, chasing James with the Great Spear.  At one point in the prison, James ran into Maria on the other side of a prison cell. By the time he went around the building and found the door that led to her, Pyramid Head had already killed her and left her corpse on the cell's bed.

Pyramid Head made his final appearance just before the final battle, where two Pyramid Heads (a 'red' one, for new blood, and a 'brown' one, for old blood) took part in the encounter. They killed Maria a third time, and then attacked James. After relentlessly pursuing James around the room for a while, both Pyramid Heads eventually commited suicide by impaling themselves on their spears when James finally realized Pyramid Head's purpose and started to seek vengeance as opposed to punishment.
