* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Most of the scenes were actually shot in Vancouver, Canada.

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: The scene of two thugs kidnapping, drugging, and attempting to rape Rennie is far more disturbing than Jason's undead killing spree throughout the rest of the film.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: Jason has this reaction to Julius boxing with him.

* FlatCharacter: One of the teen boys, Miles, who doesn't get a single shred of characterization before he's killed by Jason. He didn't even get to speak a single line in the whole movie.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: After Miles realizes he simply can't take on Jason by himself, he decides to flee... up a mast, where he clearly can't go anywhere else but back down, as Jason proves by following him up and flinging him down to his death.

** In the scene where we see the few students left being taken to the dining hall, Jason is shown peeking in at them through a window. It's likely that small group was killed by Jason offscreen, but nothing is ever mentioned about all the other students left in the ship.
