** Jason never used a {{chainsaw|Good}}, despite the fact that he is often depicted in parody work doing so. In fact, it is the preferred weapon of [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]]. Jason's canonical weapon of choice is his machete.
*** To the point that one of the most in-character actions of ''Jason X'' is him hunting for his machete for the first third of the film and abandoning the future machete he's been using up until that point when he retrieves it.
*** In ''The New Blood'' Jason did use a gas powered underbrush cutter on one of his victims. Not a chainsaw, but still...
*** In fact, the only time an actual chainsaw is used in the series is when one is used ''against'' Jason and it runs out of gas before he or the survivor can put it to any real use.

In fact, Jason's weapon of choice is a machete, but he is just as infamous for using the environment to spear, slash and crush his victims. He has ''never'' used a chainsaw; it is in fact the preferred weapon of [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]]. Jason's canonical weapon of choice is his machete.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterTiers: The counselors are easily divided up in terms of utility, and the game rewards ''speed'' over every other trait they might have. That, by itself, puts Mark and Crissy right at the top of the list, with Laura trailing behind them since she can't jump as high. George, Paul and Debbie will count themselves fortunate to be used by any players who aren't specifically making a point to actually use each counselor's individual strengths, or who aren't playing a SelfImposedChallenge.

* {{Fanon}}: Absolutely zero official sources have bothered to comment on the nearly unanimous fan theory that ''Film/JasonX'' takes place after ''Film/FreddyVsJason'', despite being released before it. Regardless, it remains a nearly unanimous fan theory, because it just makes the most sense.



* CompleteMonster: Caleb Carson, the BigBad of ''The Jason Strain'', CorruptCorporateExecutive whose pride and joy is ''[[DeadlyGame Xtreme Elimination 2]]'', a [[BloodSport reality show]] in which {{Condemned Contestant}}s are pitted against each other and "special guest" Jason Voorhees in the jungles of South America. After Jason is kidnapped from the "set" and unintentionally given the ability to [[PlagueZombie spread a zombie plague]] by a group of scientists, Carson becomes psychotically obsessed with salvaging his series, going as far as having his mercenaries massacre the facility that had developed a cure for the virus so that he can abduct Jason and the other remaining competitors from it and start over in America, not caring that Jason was still highly contagious and could potentially end all life on the planet if not given the vaccine. Carson afterward reveals that he had [[FrameUp framed]] "star contestant" Butch Malone for the double homicide that landed him on death row, knowing that the only way he could get Malone to agree to compete on ''Xtreme Elimination 2'' was by ruining his life and leaving him with no other option, with the worst part being that Butch never had a chance of winning anyway and was set up from the start to die a "dramatic" death in the final round of the game.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Crystal Lake is supposed to be in upstate New York. Which means that you shoot any scenes regarding Crystal Lake in places like California, Texas, Alabama, and Georgia. At least the first two movies shoot in New Jersey and Connecticut, respectively.

!!The novels:
* CompleteMonster: In ''The Jason Strain'', Caleb Carson is a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive television producer]] who has a team of mercenaries at his beck and call.

He was also [[ItMakesSenseInContext willing to cause]] a global ZombieApocalypse rather than have to cancel his show.
