!Jason Voorhees [-(original films)-]
[[caption-width-right:334:'''KILL.''' Also, make mother proud.]]

->''"Mommy, don't let me drown! Mommy?"''

The man behind the mask himself. He was a deformed and mentally retarded kid who was thought to have been drowned in the Crystal Lake in the 50's. He re-emerged 20 years later [[note]](either by surviving his drowning, and going hiding for reasons unknown, or becoming an undead right there and then)[[/note]] after his mother died, her death triggering [[ThePowerOfHate unrelenting hate]] within him. Jason is an unstoppable monster who kills anyone who makes the mistake to get near him.

For the [[Film/FridayThe13th2009 rebooted]] mayhem, check out below.

[-Played by: Ari Lehman ([[Film/FridayThe13th1980 first film]]), Warrington Gillette, Steve "Dash" Daskawisz, Ellen Lutter, Jerry Wallace (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPart2 Part 2]]''), Richard Brooker (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartIII Part III]]''), Ted White (''[[Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter The Final Chapter]]''), Tom Morga (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning Part V]]''), Dan Bradley, C.J. Graham (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIJasonLives Part VI]]''), Creator/KaneHodder (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood Part VII]]'', ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan Part VIII]]'', ''Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday'' and ''Film/JasonX''), Ken Kirzinger, Spencer Stump and Douglas Tait (''Film/FreddyVsJason'').-]

* AntiVillain: He kills because he believes he's making his mother proud, and he's usually content to stay in the abandoned Camp Crystal Lake as long as people leave him alone.
* AvengingTheVillain: The death of Pamela Voorhees set a many massacre to come.
* AxCrazy: Yup, Jason is definitely past the point of reasoning.
* {{Badass}}: Before his first death, he [[RasputinianDeath survived being hanged, taking an axe to the forehead (though the hockey mask helped), a machete through the collarbone, and was still moving after Tommy sliced half-way into his head]]. After returning as a [[RevenantZombie revenant]], he [[ImmuneToBullets soaks up gunfire]] like a zombie Franchise/{{Superman}}, isn't at all bothered by being set on fire, having the ceiling of a house dropped on him, being impaled, and more, all while racking up a body count of over 150, with his victims including normal people, cops, and soldiers, as well as surviving TWO '''[[SeriesFauxnale final chapters]]'''.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: Jason has (unknowingly) prevented at least two rape attempts throughout the series. [[SubvertedTrope He killed the would-be victim in one of them, though]].
* BaldOfEvil: He started out with hair, but later films turned him bald until ''Jason X''.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: In ''Jason X'', but only because he doesn't really have to breathe anymore, likely due to his cyborg modifications.
* BeardOfEvil: He had a messy and unkempt beard in ''Part 2''.
* BerserkButton:
** His mother being used against him. When it was revealed that Freddy manipulated him that way in ''[=FvJ=]'', Jason's eyes lit up with rage.
** On top of that, the lady who removes his mask in ''Jason X'' suffers perhaps one of the [[CruelAndUnusualDeath cruelest]] kills in the history of the franchise.
* BigBad: ''Part 2'' onwards. Averted in ''[[JackTheRipOff Part V]]'' and in ''[[SpinOff vs. Jason]]''.
* BodyHorror: In addition to his deformed face, from ''Part VI'' onwards, he's a rotting zombie, with Part VI explicitly showing him to be swarming with maggots. In ''Part VII'', he's decayed even further, with his ribs and spine exposed. And if that wasn't enough, in both ''Jason Goes to Hell'' and ''Jason X'', his mask appears to have fused to his face because he never takes it off.
* BodySurf: When his body is destroyed in ''Jason Goes to Hell'', his heart evolves into a small creature that hops from a body to body to get the proper one (of his own blood, that is) that'll return him to his normal state.
* BoringButPractical: His killings. Most of the time is with a machete, but he finds ways to kill his victims very practically, be it from an axe or using his own hands.
* BornUnlucky: Friday the 13th is his birthday. For the most part, though, it's ''everyone around him'' who's unlucky.
* BreakoutVillain: In the original film, he was just a RedHerring; a legend of a dead child whose ultimate role was to motivate his mother to avenge his death by killing anyone who dared to try to re-open Camp Crystal Lake. Later films turned him into one of the most iconic characters of horrordom.
* ChainedByFashion: He wears the chain that dragged him to the bottom of the Crystal Lake from ''Part VI'' around his neck in ''Part VII''.
* ClothesMakeTheLegend: The hockey mask, which he took from Shelly in ''Part III''.
* CoolMask: His iconic hockey mask, which he picks up in the third movie. In the 2009 reboot he outright abandons his makeshift sack-mask when he finds a hockey mask in Donnie's barn.
* CorpseLand: In ''Freddy vs. Jason'', his [[MentalWorld dreamscape]] is filled with the corpses of his victims.
* CoveredWithScars: In ''Part VII'', the director deliberately had it so that all of the injuries Jason had endured in his previous appearances showed in his design. He bears the axe and machete wounds from ''Part III'' and ''The Final Chapter'', as well as the motorboat propeller damage from ''Jason Lives''.
* CrazySurvivalist: Jason starts out as a mortal (albeit ''very'' tough and insane) guy living in the abandoned Camp Crystal Lake and having no tolerance to those he perceives as intruders. Even in his resurrected form he is usually shown to prefer staying in isolation at the Camp.
* {{Cyborg}}: Becomes one in ''Jason X'' due to malfunctioning {{nanomachines}} using metal and other replacements to fix his lost tissue.
* TheDeadHaveEyes: Jason has one perfectly normal eye in ''Part VI'' after he resurrects (the other was destroyed by Tommy Jarvis), despite being dead and rotting for years.
* DependingOnTheWriter:
** Jason varies between "a killer who doesn't know any better for the sake of his mommy" and "a sadistic butcher who revels in terror and slaughter " depending on the film.
** This also goes for Jason's "territorialism"; sometimes he is content in staying within the Camp Crystal Lake area, and sometimes he ventures into other places around Crystal Lake to strike terror and mayhem.
* TheDreaded: To the extent that ''Jason Goes to Hell'' opens with the [=FBI=] setting up a sting operation to take him down.
* DrivenToVillainy: His mother's death worked as a catalyst for all the massacres to come.
* {{Determinator}}: As Freddy said, "Why won't you die?!" To be fair, the only time he stopped was when Tommy killed him. Or when ''Earth's atmosphere'' killed him.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Even if he is bloodthirsty killer, Jason still cares for his mother. So much so that he built an altar for her and presented his victims to her severed head. He ([[CaptainObvious and his mom]]) are the page picture. It is often shown that the only reason (or at least the main reason) he kills isn't due to enjoyment or hatred of his victims, but simply believing he is making momma proud.
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** It is stated by Creator/KaneHodder that Jason doesn't strive for killing children or animals, though the character averted this [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness early in the series]].
** In some of the sequels, Jason appears quite content to stay within the camp borders and not bother anyone. In these examples, he would only go on a killing spree if someone invaded his "territory" first.
** He even spares a group of thugs in New York after they threaten him. All he does is lift up his mask, and the thugs promptly beat it and he leaves them alone. This may, however, have been simply because, for once, Jason just didn't feel like killing someone; at the time, Jason was hunting down the two main characters of [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan the film]] and might have not wanted to waste his time on [[ItMakesSenseInContext the bozos who were pissed about their radio]] (there's really nothing about them that would make Jason a bad, or worse, guy for offing them, compared to his normal victims).
* EvilIsBigger: The shortest actor to play Jason - in adult form, anyway - was 6' 1" (1,85 m). It's even [[ more apparent in]] ''Freddy vs. Jason'' (for reference, Robert Englund is 5' 9¾" / 1,77 m).
* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Being the BigBad of the franchise tends to do that.
* EvilUncle: Fits the role when it was revealed that he has more relatives in ''Jason Goes to Hell''.
* EyeScream: Tommy killed him in ''The Final Chapter'' by slicing halfway into his head with his machete, destroying his left eye in the process. In ''The New Blood'', his left eye is clearly missing.
* FatalFlaw: Water in all its form, as he drowned in it as a child.
** Also ''fear'' of water, which Freddy exploits to nearly kill him.
* FearlessUndead:
** Reckless when alive, but prone to damage and hurt. As a zombie, Jason shows no hesitation or fear since he feels neither.
** Subverted ''only'' twice, both instances in ''Freddy vs. Jason''; when confronted with water, he's like a DeerInTheHeadlights. He also has a fairly memorable OhCrap moment when he chops off Freddy's arm in the dream world, only to see Freddy grow it back and laugh at him.
* FreudianExcuse: His near-death experience as a child and his mom's death doesn't make up for the atrocities he's committed, but at least it's understanding why he does them.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Jason went from being an ordinary child with a skull deformity to a giant zombie SerialKiller with a body count of over 200.
* GoneHorriblyRight: In ''Freddy vs. Jason'', Freddy personally manipulates Jason into coming BackFromTheDead and terrorizing Springwood, knowing that the fear and panic Jason causes will give Freddy enough power to escape Hell and haunt the town again. The plan worked, but Freddy didn't anticipate that Jason would continue to intrude on his territory and steal his potential victims.
* GeniusBruiser: Downplayed. Although he may not have such smarts to earn himself a diploma or two, he makes up for it in being clever and resourceful.
* GreenEyes: In ''Jason X'', he is shown to have green eyes.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Of both the original movie and ''A New Beginning''; in the former, Pamela seeks to avenge his apparent death, and in the latter, Roy Burns uses his persona to become a copycat to avenge his son's death.
* TheGrotesque: Given he was born with hydrocephaly, drowned as a boy, and is always suffering from decomposition, [[ unmasking him]] always reveals a NightmareFace.
* HealingFactor: ''Jason X'' gave this reason for his resilience. It is unknown if he had it from the start, or developed it during his resurrection via lightning strike.
* HeroKiller: Kills [[FinalGirl Alice Hardy]] in ''Part 2'', [[DecoyProtagonist Rob Dier]] in ''Part 4'', [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu Sheriff Garris]] in ''Part 6'' and [[SerialKillerKiller Creighton Duke]] in ''Jason Goes to Hell''.
* IdiotSavant: Jason is described InUniverse as being mentally retarded, yet he has a natural instinct for not only [[ImprovisedWeapon turning anything he can get his hands on into a killing implement]], but also for stalking his quarry, avoiding detection and setting up traps, ambushes and diversions. Arguably becomes more basic DumbMuscle after his resurrection, as being undead means he is less vulnerable to being attacked and so he can simply wade directly into attacks.
* {{Immortality}}:
** Jason combines ResurrectiveImmortality, TheUndead, ImmortalityInducer from ''Jason Goes to Hell'', LegacyImmortality from ''Part V'', and especially JokerImmunity.
** Subverted in his FatalFlaw, which is a crippling weakness to all forms of water; waterflow can debilitate or stop him, and enough water can even drown him. As stated of the franchise creator, Jason isn't ''technically'' immortal. He feels pain and can die, but is simply strong enough and regenerates fast enough to stay alive. Enough bullets, as in ''Jason X'', can kill him, and something as powerful as atmospheric heat, also in ''Jason X'', too can incinerate and kill him.
* ImmuneToBullets: As a zombie, though he's weak to the classic headshot. As a cyborg, the bullets don't even faze him.
* ImplacableMan: When he has set his sights on someone, he does everything he can to get them. Somehow this trait gets reset when he is defeated.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He is an adept marksman and knife thrower.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Jason has used a lot of weapons, and he once killed one of his victims with a ''party horn''.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Jason alternates between using his trusty machete or a wide array of sharp things he finds along the way.
* IronButtMonkey: Out of the plethora of horror villains, Jason gets the most abused, which says something.
* TheJuggernaut: He started out as a ''[[MadeOfIron very]]'' [[MadeOfIron tough]][[note]](Machete through a collarbone or an axe to the head? No problem!)[[/note]] backwoods killer. By ''Jason X'' he is a cyborg and almost indestructible.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Every now and then, whenever an AssholeVictim is involved.
* KnightTemplar: As ''Freddy vs. Jason'' shows, he kills because he believes he's making the world a better place by only killing those he finds immoral and unworthy of life. All to please his mother.
* LightningCanDoAnything: In ''Part VI'', it was two lightning strikes that brought Jason back to life.
* MacheteMayhem: TropeCodifier for it.
* MadeOfIron: Even while alive, he survived getting hung, stabbed in the shoulder, and an ''axe to the face.''
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Even while alive, he hardly ever reacts to wounds or pain, to the extent that he barely reacted at all to Trish Jarvis splitting his hand down the middle with his own Machete in ''The Final Chapter''. The only exception is when Rennie throws a barrel of toxic waste in his face in ''Jason Takes Manhattan'', causing him to scream in agony.
* TheManTheyCouldntHang: Chris in ''Part III'' tries off him by putting him on a noose and dropping him, but Jason climbs down from it after PlayingPossum for a moment.
* MightyGlacier: In ''Freddy vs. Jason'', he walks slowly and hits heavily. In contrast, his opponent Freddy Krueger (after he is pulled out of the dream world) is a FragileSpeedster who gets in plenty of hits but is in big trouble if Jason manages to get one hit in.
* TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf: Mirrors reveal Jason's true form inside the people he has possessed in ''Jason Goes to Hell''.
* MobileMenace: Started out like this, and gradually turned into [[OffscreenTeleportation a blatant teleporter]] by the ending of ''Part VII''.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Jason's rotting appearance in parts ''VII'' and ''VIII'' shows that he has a wider mouth than normally possible, and has more teeth because of it.
* MysteriousPast: Nothing is known about the time between his "drowning" in Crystal Lake in 1957 and murder of Alice in 1979.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Gets ridiculous by the last third of the original series as he gains [[RevenantZombie undead status]], [[OffscreenTeleportation teleportation]], [[BodySurf body switching]], [[HealingFactor regeneration]] and a [[{{Cyborg}} cyborg body]], in that order.
* NighInvulnerability: As a zombie. In fact to the point that not even ''[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]]'' can kill him... until finding out about his fear, at least. Still, even Krueger has a tough time with it.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Taking into account all his appearances throughout the original series, he is by the end a cyborg zombie demon serial killer.
* NotQuiteDead: Has pulled this off in all the films, except in ''The Final Chapter'' where he attempts this 'til Tommy [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill makes sure he ain't coming back]].
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: He's a RevenantZombie, driven by need to kill.
* PsychopathicManchild: A subtle one. Jason's body is that of a huge, powerful adult, which he puts to use killing everyone he meets, but his mindset, even prior to zombification, is that of a child, who kills out of a mixture of loneliness, a desire to please his mother, a hope that his killings will bring his mother back, and a sheer lack of understanding what death means. This is even noted InUniverse, as early as his first "real" film.
* QuizzicalTilt: His usual reaction to interesting things is to tilt his head.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When he becomes a cyborg in ''Jason X'', he has red eyes with two yellow irises.
* RedRightHand: His deformed features, which change film to film.
* ScarsAreForever: Had his other eye missing for a long time after his resurrection, as originally he died when Tommy Jarvis lodged a machete into his skull, destroying it in the process. This also applies to the axe-wound in his head from ''Part III''.
* TheScourgeOfGod: Jason kills those first who are shown to be more promiscuous and so on.
* SerialKiller: He's a serial spree killer, or alternatively a serial ''mass murderer''.
* SilentAntagonist: For most of the time, but there are exceptions;
** In ''Part III'' he responds to getting stabbed in the hand by saying "ow!"
** He's also capable of speech when possessing bodies in ''Jason Goes to Hell'', but even then he opens his mouth only once in attempt to trick the protagonists.
** Then there's that one ''really'' bizarre moment in ''Part VIII'' where he calls out "Mommy, don't let me drown!" in a child's voice before getting submerged in toxic waste.
* SignificantBirthDate: It was the June 13th ,1946. Which was a Friday the 13th.
* SuperStrength: He was a strong individual. In undeath, his strength is monstrous.
* TwoFaced: He sports this look in ''Part VII''. It was the result of getting mauled by a boat motor in ''Part VI'' and spending time rotting underwater.
* TranquilFury: His ground state of being when he's not visibly enraged.
* UnexplainedRecovery:
** It's never officially revealed how he survived his childhood drowning, though ''Jason Lives'' and ''Jason Takes Manhattan'' go with the idea that he did indeed drown as a child and came BackFromTheDead.
** ''Jason Goes to Hell'' makes no effort to explain how he survived his toxic waste dip at the end of ''Jason Takes Manhattan''. ''Jason X'' similarly leaves it open how he came back after being DraggedOffToHell at the end of ''Jason Goes to Hell'', though ''Freddy vs. Jason'' reveals that Freddy brought him back.
* UnstoppableRage: What drives him. When he becomes a zombie in ''Part VI'', you can argue that he has become rage itself.
* WalkingSpoiler: At least in the first film, since any info about him gives away the killer's motivation.
* WeaksauceWeakness: ''Parts VI'' and ''VII'' go with the theory that if Jason is trapped beneath the waters of Crystal Lake, the area where he originally drowned, he will be immobilized and unable to free himself.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: ''Freddy vs. Jason'' reveals that he had a fear of water when he was a child. Even as a zombie he's afraid of it; water is one of very, very, very few things that can put a permanent end to him.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Jason is one of the best known slashers in horror history, but somewhere deep (very deep) inside is a MommasBoy that [[MissingMom deeply misses her]] and [[WellDoneSonGuy feels he has to please her]]. Also, as a dream sequence in ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' showed, the campers were pretty relentless in picking on him when he was just a small, deformed boy.
* WouldHurtAChild: When he was alive. After his death, he's shown being intrigued by children [[WouldntHurtAChild but ultimately leaving them alone]].

!Jason Voorhees (The 2009 reboot)
[[caption-width-right:273:DevelopmentHell says: "ToBeContinued".]]

As TurnOfTheMillennium came to pass, previous continuity of ''Friday the 13th'' films were rebooted along with our masked slasher.

Jason has now returned to his roots of the first films: He is once again a territorial survivalist who lives in the abandoned Camp Crystal Lake and slays anyone who dares to disturb its peace.

[-Played by: Galeb Guss (as a child) and Derek Mears-]

%%* AxCrazy
* BaldOfEvil: This time from the very start.
* BigBad: Of the reboot.
* CoolMask: Even he thinks that hockey masks are cool, as he outright abandons his makeshift sack-mask when he finds one in Donnie's warehouse.
* CrazySurvivalist: More so than in the original series.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: As per the original.
* GeniusBruiser: This Jason acts more of a cunning predator rather as a mindless brute that the original one was.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Kills [[DecoyProtagonist fake]] {{final girl}} Jenna near the end.]]
* IdiotSavant: This version of Jason is far more like a predator than the blunt instrument of the original. He digs out an extensive tunnel network, and deliberately uses hunting tactics to winnow out or kill his victims. He is, however, still a mentally deficient child grown up into a PsychopathicManchild.
** OlderThanTheyThink: The original Jason was also fairly cunning and had at least one instance of using a trap to kill his victim (a snare trap to allow him to calmly walk in and slit a throat, in his very first film). It was after becoming undead that he became more of a blunt instrument.
* LeanAndMean: Not so tall as in ''Freddy vs. Jason'', but he is now thinner than in the original series.
* MacheteMayhem: As expected.
* RedRightHand: His deformed features.
* SilentAntagonist: He never got a chance to say anything.
* TunnelKing: The first real differentiation from the past, as he has dug a tunnel network under the Camp Crystal Lake and around the residing areas prior to events in [[Film/FridayThe13th2009 the reboot]]. It also works as a justification for his MobileMenace tendencies.
* TheVoiceless: He gets ''hanged by a metal chain'' and doesn't make a sound.

!Pamela Voorhees
[[caption-width-right:246:MY SON IS DEAD.]]

->''"She can't hide. No place to hide."''

Jason's mother and the former cook of Camp Crystal Lake. When Jason disappeared into Crystal Lake due to lack of attention from the camp counselors, she went insane with grief. One year later she killed two counselors and the camp was closed. Following years have her stopping any attempt to reopen the place, either killing or sabotaging things until camp's again left alone. She met her demise during such deed and her later appearances in the series are limited to {{hallucinations}} and {{nightmare|Sequence}}s that other people are having.

She has a brief appearance in the opening minutes of [[Film/FridayThe13th2009 the reboot]].

[-Played by: Betsy Palmer ([[Film/FridayThe13th1980 first film]] and ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPart2 Part 2]]''), Connie Hogan, Marlyn Poucher (both in ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartIII Part III]]''), Paula Shaw (''Film/FreddyVsJason'') and Creator/NanaVisitor ([[Film/FridayThe13th2009 the reboot]]).-]

* AxCrazy: A more subtle case compared to her son, but as the first film shows, Jason's death has reduced her to a raving, psychotic madwoman.
* BadSamaritan / BitchInSheepsClothing: In her initial appearance, she seems nice and helpful person. She then asks Alice if she knew that a young boy drowned...
* BigBad: Of Part 1.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Of the whole original series, as the first film was made with no sequel in mind, making a her a PredecessorVillain as sorts as well.
* EvilChef: Only in a technicality, as she doesn't use her cook status for villainy.
* HearingVoices: According to [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary materials.]]
* InsaneEqualsViolent: "Went insane with grief" in this case equals death and mayhem for anyone who dares to reopen the place of her son's death.
* KnifeNut: She has a bowie knife and puts it to good use.
* MamaBear: A psychotic example.
* MyBelovedSmother: Depending on what extra materials you are reading, she was either an incredibly smothering mother, or flat out incestous with Jason.
* OffWithHisHead: She died when she was decapitated by Alice. In SlowMotion.
* PowerBornOfMadness: This is the most plausible explanation for the otherwise more improbable feats seen, such as arrowing a grown man to a door a good six inches off the ground, and hurling a body through a window.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Another explanation for her actions. Jason drowned while the counsellors were having sex and smoking drugs, so she decides to return the sentiment.
* SplitPersonality: The way she [[TalkingToThemself talks to herself]] mimicking Jason's voice suggests this.
* StartOfDarkness: The comic miniseries ''Pamela's Tale''.
* StrangerBehindTheMask: There's only a brief mention of her before she appears and reveals that she is the one behind the murders.
* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: Unlike her hideously deformed son, she looks like a normal middle-aged woman.
* TraumaButton: After Jason's supposed death at Camp Crystal Lake, any attempt to reopen the place triggers her to sabotage things in order to stop it, so that no one has share her son's fate.
* VillainousLegacy: Killing and being killed in turn brought Jason back to the outside world, and now he kills for her.
* WalkingSpoiler: She has no presence in the story until the climax, and is this because of it.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She wants to keep the Camp closed so no one would end up like Jason.
* WouldntHurtAChild: In the opening scene long before her reveal, a POV of her is shown checking on the sleeping children in the camp. She then proceeds to kill two counselors that were in a nearby cabin, having sex.
!Roy Burns

[[caption-width-right:284:[[BarrierBustingBlow *CRASH*]] WHAT SHE SAID.]]

->''"I thought you were talking to me."''

The infamous copycat killer of ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning Part V: A New Beginning]]''. He was an ambulance driver in Crystal Lake who in the past had an illegitimate child. That child was Joey, who was brutally murdered at the Pinehurst halfway-house. After learning about his son's death, Roy went into a murderous frenzy and spent next two days killing anyone near the place disguised as Jason.

[-Played by: Dick Wieland (unmasked), Tom Morga and John Hock (when masked).-]

* BigBad: Of ''Part V''.
* CoolMask: Roy wears a hockey mask similar to Jason's, albeit it has blue markings instead of red ones.
* DemonicPossession: The {{Novelization}} of ''Part VI'' hints that he was in fact possessed by Jason's spirit, which then drove him to kill. This isn't played up in ''Part V'', but its ending supports this. It's up to the watcher if this is {{canon}} or not , if they consider the film to be [[FanonDiscontinuity canon in the first place]].
* {{Determinator}}: Roy doesn't share Jason's inherent MadeOfIron status, as he is shown to feel the injuries and pain inflicted upon him. Despite that, he still keeps on going until his death.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Falls off the top of a barn loft onto a tractor harrows.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Went after everybody ''except'' the guy who killed his son.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: He was onscreen unmasked for a minute, tops.
* {{Expy}}: Of both Jason and Pamela Voorhees. His jumpsuit is also very [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Myers]]-esque. The latter fact itself is ironic as Morga had played Michael a couple of years later for a brief scene in ''Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers'', thus making him the only actor to play both Michael Myers and to some extent, Jason Voorhees.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He falls to his doom when Tommy cuts his hand with his own machete.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Died when he fell on to tractor harrows sitting right next to the barn where ''Part V'''s climactic battle took place.
* ImplacableMan: Not as much as Jason, though.
* JackTheRipoff: Copies Jason's look for his murders.
* MacheteMayhem: Machete is his main weapon in the climax, albeit one with sleeker design which real Jason usually used.
* MotiveDecay: Though his murderous rampage was started by the murder of his son, he didn't go to the one person who was directly involved.
* PapaWolf: A psychotic example, just like Pamela.
* SanitySlippage: His son's death drove him insane.
* SilentAntagonist: He can speak, but he does not do so while dressed as Jason.
* SpearCounterpart: To Pamela, as he shares her FreudianExcuse (death of son) and modus operandi (killing people, and putting the blame on the legend of Jason).
* TragicVillain: Suffered a mental breakdown after his son was killed.
* WalkingSpoiler: He has only two unmasked scenes prior to the reveal, so any mention of him will eventually spoil twist.


[[folder:Final Girls]]

!Alice Hardy

[[caption-width-right:212:Poor Alice, she only survived to die after a CatScare.]]

->''"The boy... Is he dead too?"''

Alice was one of the counselors who was hired for the restoration of Camp Crystal Lake. A talented artist, it was also implied that she had an affair with camp's current owner Steve Christy. She was forced to kill Pamela Voorhees when she revealed to her that she was responsible for all the misfortune the camp had gone through the past years and attacked her. Afterwards, she would have very prophetic nightmare of Jason attacking her...

The girl who kills Mrs. Voorhees in [[Film/FridayThe13th2009 the reboot]]'s opening may or may not be Alice.

[-Played by: Adrienne King-]

* DecoyProtagonist: Of Part 2.
* FinalGirl: She has the high honor of being the first in a long line of ''Friday the 13th'' heroines. Rare in the fact that she smokes marijuana, takes part in naughty strip games, but still manages to make it to the end.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Jason kills her with the ice pick she had grabbed when she thought someone had broken in.
* KilledOffForReal
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Her surname came from spin-off material.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Sure, she managed to stop Pamela's little spree. The crazy old lady may have been gone, but now her unstoppable zombie killing machine of a son gets brought into the picture because of her.
* NeverFoundTheBody: Because Jason took it with him.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: She also has the dubious honor of being victim number one in Jason's bodycount.

!Ginny Field

[-Played by: Amy Steel-]

* ChekhovsSkill: Her child psychology studies.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: She impersonates Jason's mother to distract him long enough to strike him with a machete.
* FinalGirl: Of Part 2. Notably avoids the "wholesome" aspects of the trope - she drinks alcohol, plays practical jokes on people, isn't always fully clothed and has sex during the film while (obviously, as she's the survivor) [[AvertedTrope averting]] DeathBySex.
** She may not have had sex during the film. It is implied that she stopped the encounter because she was on her period.
* ImprovisedWeaponUser: She defends herself from Jason with a chair and a chainsaw.

!Chris Higgins

[-Played by: Dana Kimmell-]

The Final Girl of part three, Chris has had a run in with Jason in the past and has come back to her parents' farm with friends in an effort to loosen up and forget the past. Unfortunately for her, Jason has come back as well.

* BrainyBrunette
* BrokenBird
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* FinalGirl: Of Part III.
* GenderBlenderName
* LaughingMad: By the end of the third film. Though her cameo in the fourth movie shows she managed to calm down.

!Trish Jarvis

->''"You son of a bitch! I'm gonna give you something to remember us by!"''

The older sister of protagonist Tommy Jarvis and Final Girl of ''The Final Chapter''.

[-Played by: Kimberly Beck-]

* BigSisterInstinct: She beats Jason senseless with a hammer to protect Tommy.
* DropTheHammer: When Jason grabs Tommy, Trish mercilessly beats Jason senseless with one. When it was not working, she stabbed him with the claw end instead.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The very end of Part V features Tommy going insane, donning Jason's hockey mask, and preparing to kill her, with no mention of her in further sequels. While the novelization of Jason Lives reveals that Tommy stopped regained some foothold on his sanity and stopped himself before he hurt her, there has yet to be any official material revealing whether she's still alive or not.

The Final Girl of Part VI as well as Tommy's LoveInterest, Megan is far more wild and snarky than your typical FinalGirl.

[-Played by: Jennifer Cooke-]

* DeadpanSnarker

[[caption-width-right:229:Tina to them, "Film/{{Carrie|1976}}" to [[FanNickname the fans]] and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown bringer of pain]] to Jason.]]

->''"I'm Tina, from next door."''

Heroine of ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood Part VII]]''. When she was a little girl living near Crystal Lake, she accidentally killed her father with her latent psychic abilities after [[DomesticAbuse he hit her mother]]. That moment left her psychologically devastated and she would spend some time at a mental hospital. She returned to her old home years later as a part of her treatment by Dr. Crews. While there, she accidentally resurrects Jason from his watery grave with her psychic powers. As Jason starts another killing spree, she's forced to gain control over her powers and in the end [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome gives Jason one of the biggest asskickings of his (un)life]].

* BadassAdorable

!Jessica Kimble

[-Played by: Kari Keegan -]

* DecoyProtagonist: Zigzagged. While she's the FinalGirl of the film and is the one to deliver the killing blow to Jason, Steven is arguably the true hero of the film, as most of the film is centered around him protecting both her and their daughter from Jason. And while she does deliver the killing blow, Steven winds up being the one to deliver the final blow to Jason immediately after, as even after being mortally wounded Jason ''still'' tries to go after them one last time.

* IWillFindYou: Clay wants to find at her [[TheDeterminator at any cost]] and is even willing to fight Jason.


[[folder: Characters in Multiple Films]]
!Crazy Ralph
[[caption-width-right:208:This franchise would be ten films shorter if people just had listened to him.]]

->''"It's got a death curse!"''

Ralph was the town drunk of Crystal Lake. Mentally unbalanced (hence his nickname), he drives around the town with his bicycle to spread his warnings about Camp Crystal Lake's supposed "curse", much to the concern of his ([[TheGhost mentioned, but unseen]]) wife and to the annoyance of everyone else.
Iconic character to the franchise, he would later gain two {{Exp|y}}ies in the form of Abel the hobo in ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartIII Part III]]'' and the unnamed deckhand in ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan Part VIII]]''.

[-Played by: Walt Gorney-]

* TheAlcoholic: Mentoned to be a drunk.
* TheCameo: Gets one in the book ''Hate-Kill-Repeat'', via a flashback.
* TheCassandra: His warnings are true (for different reasons, though) and nobody believes him.
* DirtyOldMan: Possibly. He is watching Ginny and Paul make out with a slightly dirty expression on his face and doesn't warn them about Jason. He could have been keeping watch to protect them maybe.
* InSeriesNickname: He's crazy, so his mental condition was made into his nickname.
* LargeHam: "[[IncomingHam YOU'RE GOIN' TO CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE, AIN'T 'CHA?!]]"
* LimitedWardrobe: Notice in ''Part 2'' that he's wearing the exact same clothes he had on in the original. Sure, it's five years later, but still...
* MissionFromGod: He is convinced that God has given him a mission to warn everyone about Camp Crystal Lake's supposed "curse."
* PosthumousNarration: The opening of ''Part VII'' is narrated by an uncredited Walt Gorney.
* RedHerring: Possibly intended to be one.
* StealthHiBye
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Crazy Ralph becomes Jason's second kill in ''Part 2'', garroted to death with a string of barb-wire.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Along with Abel and the deck hand mentioned above, another Ralph-ish character named Jonah shows up in the book ''Carnival of Maniacs''.
!Tommy Jarvis

[[caption-width-right:218:Step 1: Destroy Jason's corpse. Step 2: Muck it up and resurrect him instead. Step 3: Profit?]]

->''"Jason belongs in Hell. And I'm gonna see that he gets there."''

Closest thing the franchise had for a protagonist, Tommy was young boy who had interest in all things horror and was a good amateur FX creator. Just like any ''Friday the 13th'' protagonist, he was forced to fight for his life when Jason was on yet another killing spree near his family's place. With the help of his sister he manages to bring Jason down for good, leaving him [[HarmfulToMinors heavily traumatized]] in the process. He spends many years in mental institutions, and at his worst mental
state almost becomes a replacement for Jason. Some time later he attempts to cremate Jason's body, so he can be finally released from the demons of his past. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero This goes spectacularly wrong]] and he is forced to fight Jason once more.

[-Played by: Corey Feldman (''[[Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter The Final Chapter]]'' and ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning Part V]]''), John Shepherd (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning Part V]]'') and Thom Mathews (''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIJasonLives Part VI]]'').-]

* ActionSurvivor
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: The final twist of ''Part V'' shows him adopting the Jason persona. [[AbortedArc This angle was dropped]] for ''Part VI''.
* ArchEnemy: He's the Nancy Thompson to Jason's Freddy.
* AxeCrazy: During ''Part V'', as WrestlerInAllOfUs shown that Tommy wasn't all there in his mind and was damn near psychotic, nearly killing people in his rage induced wake.
* {{Badass}}: Killed Jason. Then a copycat killer. And then Jason AGAIN.
** BadassAdorable: The first time he killed Jason was when he was a young boy.
* BrokenBird: Was forced to kill the maniac who murdered his mother.
* CovertPervert: In his first movie, Tommy doesn't miss a chance to see a girl naked. It evolves to ChivalrousPervert, when he makes out with Megan in order to trick his guard into fighting him so he could escape from jail.
* FlashbackEcho: He sometimes flashbacks to the moment he continuously hacked Jason's barely living corpse to ensure his death.
* {{Foil}}: Both have dead mothers obsession with killing
* GenreSavvy: After discovering about Jason's past, he shaves his head to appear like him for distraction and ultimately to kill him.
* {{Hallucinations}}: He sees apparitions of Jason in ''Part V''.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: In Part VI; the cops end up believing that ''he's'' behind Jason's killings.
* HeroicBSOD: He should be the poster child of this trope.
* IShouldWriteABookAboutThis: It's mentioned in the spin-off novel ''Carnival of Maniacs'' that he authored several.
* ImportantHaircut: As mentioned above. Also a TraumaticHaircut.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Is the one responsible for Jason becoming an unstoppable zombie. In his defense he THOUGHT he'd put him back down.
* OneOfTheseThingsIsNotLikeTheOthers: He is the only male character in Friday the 13th to defy the FinalGirl trope three times. Four if you count ''ComicBook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh''.
* TheQuietOne: In ''Part V''.
* TagalongKid: To his sister in ''The Final Chapter''.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Pulls off some nice throws and slams in ''Part V.''

By this point, she thinks it's only another prank, and doesn't realize the truth until long after he's died. It's pretty clear Shelly realizes the impact of this as well, as the look he gives right before he dies clearly says "OhCrap."

[[folder: Part 6 Characters]]
!Sheriff Garris
Garris is the local sheriff of Forest Green and Megan's father. When Jason is first resurrected, he naturally doesn't believe Tommy's warnings and even believes Tommy himself is behind Jason's killings.

* AssholeVictim: Downplayed and eventually subverted. He is a dick towards Tommy, [[JerkassHasAPoint but he has a good reason to be]], his final actions before his death were PetTheDog moments which shows he is a FriendToAllChildren and he did go out trying to stop Jason with his death doubling as a HeroicSacrifice and a DyingMomentOfAwesome.
* {{Badass}}: See BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu, DyingMomentOfAwesome, FormerRegimePersonnel and HeroicSacrifice below.
* BigGood: Besides the fact he's an annoyance for Tommy, he is TheSheriff of Forest Green who does his hardest to be its protector. Garris definitely cements himself as this through giving Jason himself a beating before suffering a DyingMomentOfAwesome.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: Though it cost him his life, Garris is the only person to physically beat up Jason. Who at this point was so strong, that whacking him with a shovel only broke the shovel. Garris however knocks him down, kicks him, knocks him down again with a huge branch and proceeds to repeatably bash his head with a rock. [[HopeSpot He looked like he had a chance]] until Jason grabbed him and broke him in half.
* DeadpanSnarker: For a RabidCop, he's not without a dry sarcastic sense of wit.
--> *''After Tommy barges into the police station and Garris held him at gunpoint briefly''*
--> '''Garris:''' You in show business, kid? You sure know how to make an entrance.
--> *''After arresting Tommy at the cemetery''*
--> '''Garris:''' ''(sarcastically)'' Now see what you've done. You made my deputy draw his revolver. He's been dying to try out his mail-order laser scope.
* DecoyProtagonist: Downplayed. He protagonizes his own plot to investigate and put an end to the latest killing spree, but erroneously thinks Tommy is responsible during the majority of his screen time. He present himself as a FakeUltimateHero through his implied combat experience, his role as the sheriff who would use heavy-handed protocol to protect Forest Green (except, however, he used this on the wrong guy - Tommy) and did tried to stop Jason with everything he got once facing him and realizing the truth before being added to the body count himself at the climax.
* DirtyCoward: Subverted. At first, once he runs out of ammunition, he starts to run off and hide to seemingly save himself, but when he hears his daughter's cries for help and see Jason being drawn to those cries, he pulls a HeroicSacrifice trying to stop Jason to get to his daughter.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Dies trying to fight Jason to protect his daughter (and by extension, the young children of Camp Forest Green) and [[HopeSpot nearly won if]] not Jason took the upper hand and broke him in half.
* FormerRegimePersonnel: He is a combat veteran of the United States Armed Forces (apparently during the Vietnam War); behind his desk in a FreezeFrameBonus when Garris makes his debut, he has framed a Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, and Vietnam Service Medal hanging on his office wall. This could explained his aggressive and overprotective nature and being CrazyPrepared with firearms and the readied use of physical force against any threat he sees as to Forest Green while on duty as the sheriff. But most importantly at the climax, all that past combat experience [[HopeSpot almost came in handy]] when he managed to give a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Jason and even hit him with a log that ''[[CharlesAtlasSuperpower broke]]'' after meeting the impact until Jason broke him in half in a CurbStompBattle in his favor.
* FriendToAllChildren: See PetTheDog below.
* HateSink: Averted. Despite spending the most of the screen time as an annoyance for Tommy, Garris has a good reason to act this way and eventually won over the audience through his beatdown on Jason at the climax before getting killed himself.
* HeroAntagonist: Towards Tommy.
* HeroicSacrifice: Goes down fighting Jason when Jason was advancing towards his daughter.
* HopeSpot: Looked like he had a chance to beat Jason to death once and for all, until Jason took the upper hand and broke him in half.
* InspectorJavert: Refuses to believe that Jason is back until he sees him with his own eyes, and actually ends up believing that ''Tommy himself'' is the killer.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's aggressive and antagonistic towards Tommy and to anyone like his daughter (in an AngerBornOfWorry kind of sense due to his nature as an OverprotectiveDad) who backs him up.
* JerkassHasAPoint:
** Now if anyone with history of mental trauma told you they saw a serial killer come back from the dead, they'd be right not to believe them.
** Also, when Tommy for the first time barges into his station, Garris at first tried to be civil towards Tommy, but had to resort to raising his voice and barking back at to him when Tommy refuses to lower his own and foolhardily vehemently demanding a police officer to listen when trying to warn him about Jason.
--> '''Garris:''' ''(calmly)'' You better slow down, kid. You already almost got your head blown off.
--> '''Tommy:''' Will you listen, dammit?!
--> '''Garris:''' ''(aggravated)'' Don't piss me off or I really will repaint this office with your brains!
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his abrasive [[HeroAntagonist hero antagonism]] towards Tommy, he does legitimately love his daughter and even died trying to save her from Jason when the killer advances to her direction. Also, as his duty as the sheriff, he makes sure he protects the well-being of Forest Green (aka Crystal Lake) no matter how aggressive his methods are. In addition, Garris is also a FriendToAllChildren, such as when he consoles a scared little girl who ran into him from Jason's murder spree and instructs the camp's kids to hide for their protection (see PetTheDog below). Upon realizing Jason is alive and running amok killing people again, it's unknown if Garris changes his opinion and attitude about Tommy after the realization up to his death, but if he did survived, Garris would have lightened up his attitude towards Tommy, thanked him for taking down Jason to save his daughter and allowed his daughter to date Tommy.
* NominalHero: Downplayed. Garris is maybe the Sheriff who sincerely fulfill his duty to protect the well-being of Forest Green, but however, he mostly act as a RabidCop obstacle for Tommy and even think Tommy is behind the killings to prove Jason's return, until at the climax when he realized the truth himself and dies trying to stop Jason.
* OverprotectiveDad: Expresses his AngerBornOfWorry towards his rebellious daughter Megan and does not like seeing her and Tommy together.
* PapaWolf: See PetTheDog below and DyingMomentOfAwesome and HeroicSacrifice above.
* PetTheDog: Upon arriving at the camp, he consoles a scared little girl who was fleeing from Officer Pappas' death and then instructs the children to hide underneath their beds in their cabin until the danger ceases. See also HeroicSacrifice above. In fact, these PetTheDog moments were his final acts before pulling a HeroicSacrifice and suffering a DyingMomentOfAwesome trying to fight Jason.
* PoliceAreUseless: When Tommy tries to warn Garris of Jason's return, he ignore him due to his past institutionalization. When Sheriff Garris discovers the bodies of the paintballers Jason had previously killed, he decides that Tommy did so while acting out a delusion of Jason's return, dismissing Megan's insistence that Tommy was with her during the killings and thus could not possibly have done it. It's only when he and his men chase Tommy and Megan to Camp Crystal Lake (renamed Forest Green) and see Jason with their own eyes that they're forced to acknowledge the truth, and [[SacrificialLion they all die trying to stop him]].
* RabidCop: See {{Jerkass}} and JerkassHasAPoint above for information.
* SacrificialLion: See BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu, DyingMomentOfAwesome and HeroicSacrifice above.
* {{Tritagonist}}: He protagonizes a plotline of his own in his most screen time investigating the murders, despite constantly mistaking Tommy for the killer and refusing to believe that Jason is back, but really cements himself as this at the climax (though of the DecoyProtagonist variety as he also falls victim to the killer) when facing Jason for the first time and then attempts to gun him down with no avail before eventually performing a HeroicSacrifice to buy his daughter Megan and inadvertently ([[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation or not]]) Tommy time to make a trap to stop Jason.

!Dr. Crews
* AssholeVictim: The biggest of the entire series
* BigBadWannabe: He wants to exploit Tina's powers for himself and his own selfish needs. While that could potentially make him a threat in any other work (like if this film he appeared in would instead a feature adaptation of ''Series/FridayThe13thTheSeries'' or a film like ''Film/TheFury''), he just so happens to be in a movie that's already part of a VillainBasedFranchise - which means there's a certain borderline invincible killer running around the woods that makes him look like small potatoes in comparison.

[-Played by: Steven Williams-]

* BigGood: The most resourceful character with knowledge on how to defeat Jason.
* BountyHunter: Of [[SerialKiller serial killers]].

'''Duke''': That makes me think of a little girl in a pink dress sticking a hot dog through a doughnut.
* DecoyProtagonist: Gets killed by Jason despite spending a good bulk of the film with Steven trying to defeat him.
* HeroicSacrifice: He uses handcuffs to tie himself and Jason together to buy Steven and Jessica some time, and gets his back snapped in turn.
* ItsPersonal: While in the film it is not specified ''why'' exactly he is so prone to defeat Jason ("Son of a bitch, you remember me?" is all the audience gets), [[AllThereInTheScript the script]] reveals that his girlfriend was murdered by him.
* SerialKillerKiller: He's a actually a serial killer bounty hunter.
