* EvilIsCool: Jason Voorhees. The [[FridayThe13th2009 2009 reboot]] also deliberately tries to invoke this by making him a GeniusBruiser with elements of Franchise/{{Rambo}}.

** Is Jason's ghost really talking to Pamela, or is she just delusional?

ForTheEvulz?



* CommonKnowledge: 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...

* DracoInLeatherPants: Believe it or not, it's been done to Mr. Voorhees. He has an astonishing amount of fanfiction where he falls in love with the one girl who he doesn't kill. Frequently going through {{Wimpification}} and becoming a literate mentally sound gentleman who just ''happens'' to go on mindless merciless killing sprees now and then.
** A lot of people take the CrazySurvivalist KnightTemplar EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas angle and ''run with it''.

Added DiffLines:

* IconicCharacterForgottenTitle: While the "Friday the 13th" title is hardly forgotten, people do have a tendency to refer to the movies as "the Jason films" more often than their primarily title, which makes things interesting as [[spoiler: Jason isn't even the killer in Parts 1 ''or'' 5.]] Not helping is the fact that the New Line Films, barring the reboot, do explicitly have Jason as part of the main title for each movie rather than "Friday the 13th."

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Parts two to three can come off as this, as they all have very similar plot structure. Later films get more creative with their presentation, though some of them are disliked for getting ''[[TheyChangedItNowItSucks too]]'' creative.

** This typically comes into play from the fourth film onwards. The third film has elements of it, but they're still a minor compared to the relatively decent, likeable protagonists -- we have three random bike gang scum types, and one obnoxious practical jokester (who admits he only does so because he's a fat nerdy loser type and it's the only way he can think of to make people like him), compared to a pregnant woman and her loving boyfriend; two friendly, quiet-natured hippies; and a traumatized girl with her boyfriend, who tries to understand why she's such a wreck. And in the first two films, the counselors are generally pleasant, affable folk, who only count as jerkasses because they see nothing wrong with smoking, drinking or premarital sex.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''A New Beginning'', ''Jason Takes Manhattan'', ''Jason Goes to Hell'', ''Jason X'', and the 2009 reboot are often victims of this.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''A New Beginning'', Beginning'' (for [[spoiler:Jason being replaced by a copycat killer]]), ''Jason Takes Manhattan'', Manhattan'' (for changing the setting to a cruise ship and then to a big city), ''Jason Goes to Hell'', Hell'' (for turning Jason into a body-hopping demon), ''Jason X'', X'' (for sending Jason to a campy adventure in space), and the 2009 reboot are often victims of this.

** The fifth movie inspired [[{{Cinemassacre}} James Rolfe]] to speculate that the actual Jason never existed and all his appearances were simply a different man in a mask, since his actors and body shapes change so frequently across movies.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: A few minor characters proved quite popular among fans. Some examples would be Crazy Ralph from the first two films, and Violet from ''A New Beginning''.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: It's very difficult, it's easy to get lost, and Jason constantly pops up to kill off counselors and children when you're in the middle of doing something. It's not very good; just ask WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd.

Added DiffLines:

* {{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.
