* ShootingSuperman: Armed characters ''will'' insist on shooting, stabbing, clubbing, or punching Jason over and over, even when it's clearly not doing jack-squat to stop him. Usually he'll just stand there and soak up the blows, then finish them off once they've gotten it out of their system. ** It finally works in JasonGoesToHell and JasonX. [[JokerImmunity But not for long.]]

Off The Rails is a tabletop RPG trope
* '''''Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday'' (1993)''' -- The government ''finally'' kills Jason, but his evil heart helps to partially resurrect him. Jason, now an evil spirit, jumps from body to body as he seeks out his last living relatives so that he can kill them before they can kill him. Along the way, he kills a bunch of people. This film became ''another'' SeriesFauxnale, and went completely OffTheRails thanks to the "body jumping hellspirit" gimmick and an entire supernatural backstory it made up for Jason. In the final scene of the film, the bladed glove of [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] drags Jason's hockey mask down to Hell, which set up the crossover film that would come ten years later. Jason, in his own body at least, only shows up twice during the film ([[BookEnds at the very beginning and at the very end]]). The first movie made after [[ChannelHop New Line acquired the rights]] to facilitate the long-planned crossover with Freddy Krueger.

** It was going to be subverted in ''Jason X'' where he was supposed to kill the image of his mother in the holographic display showing Crystal Lake just to show how evil he has become. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen The idea was scrapped.]]

* ''His Name was Jason'': An hour and half-long documentary done in the 'house of horrors' style and narrated by Tom Savini. While not exactly bad, its relatively short length meant there wasn't much focus on individual films and once ''[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Never Sleep Again]]'' (made by the same guy) came out, a demand arouse for a similar documentary about ol' Crystal Lake resident. Which led to...

Very similar to ''Never Sleep Again'', this definitive documentary gives in-depth information on every movie in the franchise (reboot included) and the TV series and touches upon nearly everything Jason-related. It lasts [[UpToEleven six and half hours]] and is narrated by Corey Feldman.

The franchise also slapped its name onto a horror anthology series -- ''Series/FridayThe13thTheSeries'' -- which had very little to do with the films.
