The comic book miniseries ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'' and its sequel, ''The Nightmare Warriors'', follow up on the events of ''[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]] [[Film/FreddyVsJason vs.]] [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]]'' and tosses [[Franchise/EvilDead Ashley J. Williams]] into the mix to create a horror crossover that fans could only have dreamed about before its publication. Creator/DCComics, Dynamite Entertainment, and Wildstorm published both series from 2007 to 2009, with James Kuhoric (writer) and Jason Craig (illustrator) helming both series. Kuhoric based the original series on the original ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'' film treatment by Jeff Katz; Katz himself helped pen ''The Nightmare Warriors'', which he and Kuhoric designed as a horror film parallel to DCís various Crisis events, right down to combining the three franchisesí continuities and turning the Nightmare Warriors into a Justice League-style Ďsuperteamí.

* ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash''

After the events of ''Freddy vs. Jason'', Freddy Krueger manipulates Jason Voorhees into retrieving [[Franchise/EvilDead the Necronomicon ex Mortis]], which Freddy plans to use to revive himself and cause more carnage. Ash happens to have moved to Crystal Lake for the opening of a new Super Ultra Mega S-Mart, which serves as his cover while he keeps his own search for the Necronomicon alive. Once the triumvirate of terror meet, chaos ensues.

* ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors''

Following the events of the previous series, the United States government resurrects both Freddy and Jason in an attempt to exploit their supernatural powers. The government soon discovers that it canít control the titans of terror, who now seek to take over the world using the Necronomicon. In the meantime, Ash stumbles upon the existence of the Nightmare Warriors, a support group for survivors of the two killersí supernatural rampages. Once Ash and his new allies learn of the resurrection of Freddy and Jason, the Nightmare Warriors make it their mission to stop the deadly duo once and for all.

!!''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'' provides examples of:

* BigDamnVillains: [[spoiler:The Dream Demons]].
* BishonenLine: Crossed by ''Jason'', of all people, when Freddy decides that Jason's undead form won't be able to withstand the coming battle and so uses the Necronomicon to completely restore him.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead:
** '''Blonde:''' Tina
** '''Brunette:''' Stephanie and Alice
** '''Redhead:''' Rennie
* ChainsawGood: Ash gets a new, "chain lit" chainsaw, which proves to be a lot more useful than any other weapon.

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Presumably Maggie, though how it happened isn't revealed]].
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: Freddy]]. See YouHaveFailedMe.
* ClippedWingAngel: Dream Master Jacob, Freddy after absorbing Jason's soul.
* ContinuityPorn
* DarkReprise: "Freddy's Coming For You" returns as [[spoiler:Freddy and the Deadites attack the White House]], only this time the last two stanzas are replaced. Rather than singing about staying awake, the [[CreepyChild creepy children]] sing about how Freddy will bring about [[spoiler:TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt]].
* DeathBySex
* DemotedToExtra: While he still plays a central role in the plot [[spoiler:Jason]] receives little attention compared to [[spoiler:Freddy and Ash]] and mostly serves as [[spoiler:Freddy's]] errand boy.
* DoNotAdjustYourSet: How "President Freddy" announces his "No Kid Left Alive" act to the world.
* DualWield: Tommy with machine guns, Alice with handguns, Jason and Stephanie with machetes, [[spoiler:Maggie]] with two bladed gloves.
* TheDragon: Jason, sometimes.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Stephen, Rennie and Maggie (in Maggie's case, it's more of [[TankGoodness a tank]]).
* TheEndOrIsIt: Both series end on this note, though only two stories seem to have been planned.
* EvilCostumeSwitch[=/=]EvilIsSexy: [[spoiler: After her FaceHeelTurn, Maggie switches from a psychologist's business suit to a supervillain costume consisting of black latex pants and a bra, with dual knife gloves. Her outfit seems to be a Shout-Out to ComicBook/{{X 23}}]].
* {{Expy}}: Intentional or not, Stephanie bears a lot of similarities to [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Jamie Lloyd]].
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Dr. Maggie Burroughs aka Katherine Krueger]] in Nightmare Warriors.
* GrandFinale: These comics pretty much serve as this for all three franchises' original continuities before being rebooted.
* HijackedByGanon: Director Russell Gordon, set up as a major villain in ''Nightmare Warriors'', is killed halfway through the series.
* NotSoDifferent: Tommy's NoHoldsBarredBeatdown against the rejuvenated Jason ends when he [[spoiler:breaks Jason's mask and sees that Jason's human face looks very much like his own]].
* OnlyAFleshWound: Happens to Ash, Neil and Jacob.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Tommy feels this way towards Jason, and it's possibly reciprocated.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:Freddy Krueger has read the [[Franchise/EvilDead Necronomicon]]. ''Freddy Krueger'' has read the ''[[Creator/HPLovecraft Necronomicon]]'']]
* PantyShot: Early in the first comic, while [[spoiler:Lori]] is being chased by [[spoiler:Jason]], we see a couple of shots of her underwear peeking above her pants
* ParentalIncest: [[spoiler: Freddy and Maggie.]]
* {{Retcon}}: This comic combines the ''[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Elm Street]]'' and ''Franchise/EvilDead'' continuities, but in the original ''[[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984 Nightmare On Elm Street]]'', Nancy Thompson could be seen watching The Evil Dead and Freddy's glove could be seen in ''Film/EvilDead2''. The latter example could be interpreted as subtle Foreshadowing, although it's more likely that Creator/WesCraven and Creator/SamRaimi were simply sending {{Shout Out}}s to each other's work and did not anticipate the two films seeing a crossover around 20 years later.
* ShoutOut:
** ''Potentially'' in the first issue of ''Nightmare Warriors''. As the government agents surround the ice pond where Jason was dumped at the end of the first series, one agent calls the applications of an "un-killable soldier" more plausible than the Necronomicon; at the beginning of ''Film/JasonX'', the military wanted to take Voorhees into custody (instead of putting him into permanent cryogenic suspension) to study his seeming immortality for their own purposes.
** Legit shout-outs in ''Nightmare Warriors'' include a scene from ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'' which shows up in a dream sequence, Ash is listening to the Music/AliceCooper song "He's Back (the Man Behind the Mask)" during a car drive, and there's even a reference to Hypnocil.
** Also, in the original ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'', during Freddy and Ash's first confrontation, Freddy makes a wise-crack about playing "pin the tail on the Elvis impersonator". This could very well be a reference to Bruce Campbell playing not only Ash in the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' series, but also Music/ElvisPresley in the movie ''Film/BubbaHotep''.
** The hotel that Jacob and Stephanie stays at in ''Nightmare Warriors'' [[spoiler: at least in the dreamscape]] and the house next to it looks almost exactly like the Bates Motel and house in ''{{Film/Psycho}}''.
* SignsOfDisrepair: The last letter on Stabe motel's sign is broken.
* SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat: Thanks to the [[spoiler:Necronomicon]], Freddy and Jason escalate from their usual Local Area Threat Level to Planetary Threat Level
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome:
** [[spoiler:Lori and Will]] and in the second one, [[spoiler:Caroline]].
** [[spoiler: Jessica and Steven from Jason Goes to Hell]] don't fare much better in the Nightmare Warriors. The former is revealed to have died behind the scenes while the latter is [[DroppedABridgeOnHim abruptly killed]] near the end of the second issue.
* ThanatosGambit: [[spoiler: Alice]] pulls one in The Nightmare Warriors. [[spoiler: She's revealed to be terminally ill which has also made her unable to use her powers as the Dream Master, so she lets Freddy kill her so they can be passed to her son, allowing him to use the Dream Master powers and unleash his full wrath on Freddy.]]
* VersusTitle
* WashingtonDCInvasion: Freddy stages a surprisingly successful one with a Deadite army (and Jason leading the troops). When the government's dumb enough to bring [[EvilIsNotAToy Freddy, Jason, and the Necronomicon itself to Washington...]]
* YouAreTooLate: In the first series, Ash personally goes to stop Freddy from reading the Necronomicon -- then discovers that [[spoiler:Freddy already read from the book and gained all its powers ''ten minutes prior'']].
* YouHaveFailedMe: When Freddy defiantly declares himself a [[AGodAmI "dream god"]] [[spoiler:even after Jason and the Deadites have been defeated, the Dream Demons decide that they've had enough]].
-->'''[[spoiler:Dream Demons]]:''' You lied to us! We gave you power and now we have ''nothing!''
