**Mark. All we know about him is his brother was killed by Freddy, and he's on the up-and-up as far as the lore goes. He could have explained Krueger's MO and how to stop him to the others instead of their figuring it out in the forced, unlikely way they did.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** When Freddy enters Lori's dream about the others wanting to sacrifice her, disguised as her father, to french kiss her. No reason why he's disguised as her father and no mention of the events of that dream from either of them.
** Why is he disguised as her father? Just to add another level of MindScrew. It adds to her fear and that's what he's all about.

** [[FinalGirl Lori Campbell.]] Some think she's among the worst Final Girls in the series, if not the worst, because of Monica Keena's notoriously poor performance and the character being a very shallow stereotype. Others think she's a very brave and likable girl who manages to become a {{Badass}} at the end.
** [[SassyBlackWoman Kia]] as well. Some viewers very much enjoyed [[KellyRowland Kelly Rowland's]] LargeHam performance and found the character to be both amusing and likeable. Others found her to be nothing more than a grating, poorly written stereotype and felt Kelly's performance was amongst the worst in the movie.

* CompleteMonster: At the end of the day, as Freddy learned, Jason is always going to be a traumatized, disfigured little boy acting out over the loss of the one person who cared about him, while Freddy has always been a twisted psychopathic child murderer who prolongs the suffering of his victims for his own pleasure.

* HilariousInHindsight: See that ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' shout-out on the main page of the movie? It's amusingly prophetic because with the announcement of the first DLC character for ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', Freddy and Jason have appeared in the ''Mortal Kombat'' series, in that order. ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''' for Freddy and ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' for Jason.

** Jason Ritter stars in a story about a TownWithADarkSecret, with a parent who knows more than he seems to and is pretending the mysterious supernatural force in the town isn't real to protect his family? Are you sure this isn't ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''?

* EpilepticTrees: The film's ending generated a lot of WildMassGuessing; Ken Kirzinger(Jason's actor) mentioned in the commentary that a fan had asked him if the ending represented [[AscendedDemon Jason going to Heaven]].
* JustHereForGodzilla: Most people watch this film just for the fight, ignoring the forgettable humans entirely.
** It doesn't help that each character's name is only said a few times (if at all).

* InternetBackdraft: The news that Jason would not be played by Creator/KaneHodder generated a ''huge'' uproar in the fanbase. Flame wars still persist to this day between fans who feel that Ken Kirzinger's greater height made him a more intimidating opponent compared to Freddy, and those who feel that he was an adequate at best replacement and that Hodder would have played the role better. Things have been made worse for the latter group by the next entry being a ContinuityReboot, pissing them off that Hodder couldn't be around for the original version's final outing.
