** Could be justified by the fact that, when he was alive, Jason had both his eyes, even if his face was deformed. Since his resurrection, he only has one. Perhaps his depth perception was off.

* OhCrap: Par for the course in this franchise but a particularly funny moment happens when Jason while chasing the Lazarus survivrs through New Yor, (by way of Granville Street n Vancover, accidentally knocks over a boom box. The street toughs who ere grooving to it get up and start threatening Jason. Rather than kill them and risk letting his real targets escape he simply turns his back to the camera, looks at them, and lifts his mask. The tough guys immediately back off wide-eyed saying "It's cool man!" Doubles as [[RuleOfFunny Rule of Funny]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: While not exactly evil, BetaBitch Eva is clearly uncomfortable with Tamara pushing Rennie off the boat, and stops hanging out with her afterwards. Though Eva does try to find Tamara when everyone is told to get together, and finds her body. And Jason.

** Also present behind the scenes. Originally, a scene called for Jason to [[KickTheDog kick Rennie's dog]], but Creator/KaneHodder refused to do it, stating that while Jason may have no qualms against killing humans, he's not bad enough to hurt animals.

* CassandraTruth: Despite all the chaos that ensues on the boat and off it, and the deaths of several characters, Charles adamantly refuses to believe that Jason is alive and after them until Jason comes after him and drowns him in a barrel of sewage.

* WellDoneSonGuy: Established between the captain Robertson and his son Sean in their initial scene. He shows regret over it later on and tells Jim to avoid putting too much pressure on his own son.

* WaterIsDry: When Rennie goes to the bathroom immediately after her near-drowning, her hair is still wet, but her clothes have dried out entirely, even though hair dries out a ''lot'' more quickly than clothes do.

* KickTheDog: Averted. Jason was supposed to kick a barking dog at some point in a film, but Creator/KaneHodder decided it wasn't in his character.
** Which is an example of canonical AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, given it is strongly implied in ''Film/FridayThe13thPart2'' that Jason disemboweled a dog with his bare hands offscreen.

[[note]]However, it was a different dog's body that had been found earlier, as Muffin (the dog thought to have been killed at first) is shown to be alive at the end of the movie.[[/note]]



* LetsSplitUpGang: While the previous films in the series had averted this trope (usually because characters tended to die before they could alert anyone as to Jason's presence), this one embraces it. After the ship's captain is found dead, Julius organizes a hunt-down for Jason, which leads to the death of two other students. Then, when the boat survivors arrive in NYC and Rennie is kidnapped, Charles suggests doing this again to find her, which leads to the death of Julius.

* SinkOrSwimMentor: Charles is quite literal one in Rennie's flashback.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Somewhat justifiable considering Jason isn't in the best shape by this point in the series, but it's still kind of jarring that he misses two people with a harpoon gun from just a few feet away, especially considering that one of his most famous kills (back in the third film) had him skewering a woman right in the eye with a harpoon from a much greater distance.
