** Freddy and Jason are not in the same universe. Jason vs Freddy, like AlienVsPredator takes place in its own continuity. However Freddy has shown in the past to be quite the rules lawyer when he needs to be. The most likely answer is that he either hitched a ride in someone who was descended from the Elm Street kids. Or even though the ships we see in Jason X are named after monsters that could just be that batch and somewhere there's a batch that were named after trees. A nightmare on Elm ship is the exact sort of thing Freddy would find hilarious.

** The expanded universe explains her house was at or near Crystal Lake, her having moved there to confront her trauma. Jason could easily have seen her walking around some day and recognized her (as it's also offical he saw her kill Pamela).

* Even after umpteen movies and umpteen - 1 killing sprees, how do the characters in these movies STILL not know who Jason Vorhees is?

** You're overstating the movies. Friday the 13th 2-4 take place over what appears to be a single summer with 2 and 3 being directly back to back. Friday the 13th 5 doesn't actually feature Jason, the villain that time is the father of a mentally disabled teen who is killed in the first act. 6 features his revival as a zombie (or whatever he is) and takes place years after the first four movies with an adult Tommy. Much of that movie hinges on the locals do know about Jason. He's a dead serial killer who up until then had shown no magical powers at all. Seven has little excuse, eight is takes Manhattan and features kids on a cruise. They weren't even at Crystal Lake for most of the time and that is where he's supposed to be. Nine (Jason goes to Hell) they know exactly what Jason is and send the FBI and if not for a serious case of PowersAsThePlotDemands that would have worked just fine on Jason. Ten (Jason X) takes place centuries into the future and clearly real monsters are sufficiently rare that they didn't really believe he could come back from the dead. Jason vs Freddy involves Jason being where he doesn't belong, in a city that has it's own monster who can only attack in your sleep. It's immediately clear that the police (and probably most of the adults) have concluded that Freddy is back again and dismissed any facts that disagreed with that. In fact they would have been wise to blame the murders on Jason. He's something you can shoot and it would have prevented Freddy from returning. So in closing out of eleven films only 9 feature Jason. Of those 9 four of them take place away from Crystal Lake. 2,3 and 4 are all one long spree that ends with his death. 6 is his revival after more than a decade leaving just part seven as a legit what the hell.

** Adrenaline? Or maybe his rage at being injuries supplemented his strength?

** Well, Jason has always been a rather territorial creature. Maybe he had found her trespassing on "his" turf and just wanted her off of it.

* In Part III Jason is shown attacking Chris in a flashback with a knife. However after he loses it he just keeps chasing her and then... she wakes up at home. So... what did he do to her? He obviously neither killed nor mutilated her and, considering that it's [[SexIsEvil Jason]], it's unlikely he raped her either. Did he just drag her around the woods then dump her when he noticed she'd passed out? Why?
* Since Freddy and Jason are in the same universe, what happened to Freddy Kruger when earth one was destroyed in Jason X? Does he forever roam around in dream world since there are no earthlings to terrorize and kill?

* In part 2 Jason was strong but not insanely strong, his killings were mostly by element of surprise and in the end struggled to subdue the final girl's boyfriend [[spoiler: who survived the fight]]. Come the next movie that supposedly takes place mere days after, he is suddenly strong enough to not only dispatch everyone with easy, but at one point he squeezes a guy's head so hard ''his eye rockets out of his socket''. On top of that Jason was heavily wounded at the end of Part 2, so, if anything he should be ''weaker'' here. He also somehow grew much bulkier between movies, but that can probably be chalked up to TheOtherDarrin. I wonder specifically if there can be an in-universe explanation for this, since I know [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness the real one]].

*** That, or someone had the ''spectacularly'' bad judgment to name a ship after Freddy.
