It All Comes Down To This

Silent Hill: Arcade: Endings
According to the Konami website, there are four endings to this game: Bad, Normal, Good, and UFO. Enjoy!

Good Ending

How to get it: You get this by shooting the hands off of the final boss before you kill it.
Transcript: The hand from the final boss begins to sink into the water and Emilie is lying unconscious on the ground. “Emilie!” Tina calls and runs up to her. “Emilie.. Emilie, please open your eyes!” Emilie regains consciousness. “Tina?” She asks with a smile, then embraces her. The sinking hand turns into Hannah’s, and Eric quickly grabs it. He looks like the captain for a moment before pulling Hannah out. Hannah looks at Eric. “For a very long time…” she says, “For a very long time… in the water… it was cold… and dark.” Eric gently puts his hand on Hannah’s head. “Oh right.. it must have been very scary.” He sympathizes. “It’s all right now. The nightmare is over.” He tells her with a confident smile. Hannah looks at him for a moment before grabbing him and bursting into tears.

We are taken back to the past, where Hannah is seen crying on a bench on the ship. “Hannah, what’s wrong? Why are you crying?” The captain asks, sitting next to her. “I can’t find my mom.” Hannah replies. “Maybe she doesn’t want me anymore. But she’s..” “Do you hate you mommy?” The captain asks in disbelief. Hannah shakes her head. “It’s the same for her.” The captain assures Hannah. “She’d never leave you.” Suddenly a soft voice calls out. “Hannah? Hannah? Where are you?” The captain smiles at Hannah and nods. Hannah nods as well and waves goodbye.”Mommy!” She cries out and throws her arms around her mother.

Eric gets up off the ground, now back in the normal world, and looks up to see the Little Baroness passing him. The captain respectfully tilts his hat to Eric, and Eric watches as the Little Baroness sails off. Emilie and Frank are shown safely in each other’s arms, and Tina comes up next to Eric. She smiles and nods. “Do you think she was able to meet her mother?” Tina asks. “Of course.” Eric answers knowingly.

Normal Ending

How to get it: Unknown, but the requirements are likely similar or closely related to the Good ending, since the Normal ending is very similar to the Good ending.
Transcript: The hand from the final boss begins to sink into the water and Emilie is lying unconscious on the ground. “Emilie!” Tina calls and runs up to her. “Emilie.. Emilie, please open your eyes!” Emilie regains consciousness. “Tina?” She asks with a smile, then embraces her. The sinking hand turns into Hannah’s, and Eric quickly grabs it. He looks like the captain for a moment before pulling Hannah out. Hannah looks at Eric. “For a very long time…” She says, “For a very long time… in the water… it was cold… and dark.” Eric gently puts his hand on Hannah’s head. “Oh right.. it must have been very scary.” He sympathizes. “It’s all right now. The nightmare is over.” He tells her with a confident smile. Hannah looks at him for a moment before grabbing him and bursting into tears.

Eric wakes up in the normal world and sees the Little Baroness. He observes as the boat goes by and disappears into the fog of Lake Toluca. Tina comes to Eric’s side. “Where are we?” She asks. “It’s all over!” Eric tells her with confidence. “It’s all over…” Emilie and Frank are shown passed out next to each other on the ground. “You know.. where is everyone?” Tina asks. “This is a dream, right?” Eric looks down with a troubled expression.

We are taken back to the past, where Hannah is seen crying on a bench on the ship. “Hannah, what’s wrong? Why are you crying?” The captain asks, sitting next to her. “I can’t find my mom.” Hannah replies. “Maybe she doesn’t want me anymore.

Where are you?” The captain smiles at Hannah and nods. Hannah nods as well and waves goodbye. “Mommy!” She cries out and throws her arms around her mother.

Bad Ending

How to get it: Do not shoot the hands off the final boss before killing it.
Transcript: The boss’s hand sinks down into the water and Tina runs up to Emilie. Eric looks troubled.  “Emilie, Emilie!” Tina says with worry, Emilie in her lap. “Emilie! Emilie!!” Emilie will not wake up. The boss’s hand turns into Hannah’s hand and sinks down into the water. Eric holds out his hand helplessly, unable to do anything. He looks rather upset, then turns around.

He awakens on the shore and stands up, surrounded by fog. “Where is this?” He asks. “Where am I?” He looks around with a frown. “Where is everyone? Tina? Emilie?” Nobody answers. He looks down and sees a radio in his hand. “What’s this?” He asks. He puts the radio to his ear. “Mommy.. where are you? Save me.. mommy…” Eric frowns while he listens, then all of a sudden looks very upset and perturbed. “…Why didn’t you rescue me?” A pitiful voice asks.

UFO Ending

How to get it: As seen on the maps, there are UFOs that appear at certain points in the game.  When you see them, you must shoot them and blow them up. Do this for all of the UFOs in the game and you will be given the UFO ending.
Transcript: The boss’s hand will shudder for a moment, then a UFO will suddenly appear!  “What?” Eric asks.  Aliens come down from the UFO, then a strange man’s silhouette suddenly appears.  “Eric!” The strange man says. “I am so proud of you, that you’ve gone over this crisis!  Everything was all my doing!” The silhouette turns into the captain of the Little Baroness, and Eric and Tina stare in shock.  “…Great Grandpa!?” Eric asks in disbelief.  The captain laughs.  “Isn’t it cool, Eric?  This is my new ship!” He declares.  “.. You were alive??” Eric asks.  “Hey, where’s Emilie?!” Tina demands.  “Emilie and Hannah.. have both fallen in my hands!!” The captain declares.  “If you want them back, come chasing after me.. to the END OF THE UNIVERSE!!” The captain throws a fist in the air.  He gets back into the UFO and flies off.

“Eric.. what is up with you??  Hurry, we have to go after them!” Tina proclaims… “In this space combat ship!” She points to a spaceship.  Eric looks rather confused.  “What??” He asks in disbelief.  “You wait, Emilie!” Tina declares.  “I’m definitely coming to save you!” She and Eric take off in their space combat ship.  The scene cuts to an NES graphical era side-scrolling shooter. Robbie the Rabbit is sitting in front of the screen, enjoying the game.  He traverses to the end of the universe and beats the final boss.
