    Antagonists 

What do we mean by "antagonists"? Read on, gentle troper...


Jason Voorhees (original films)

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 (either by surviving his drowning, and going hiding for reasons unknown, or becoming an undead right there and then) when his mother died, her death triggering unrelenting hate within him. An unstoppable monster, he kills anyone who makes the mistake to get near him.

For the rebooted mayhem, check out below.

Played by: Ari Lehman (first film), Warrington Gillette, Steve "Dash" Daskawisz, Ellen Lutter, Jerry Wallace (Part 2), Richard Brooker (Part III), Ted White (The Final Chapter), Tom Morga (Part V), Dan Bradley, C.J. Graham (Part VI), Kane Hodder (Part VII, Part VIII, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday and Jason X), Ken Kirzinger, Spencer Stump and Douglas Tait (Freddy vs. Jason).

  • Avenging the Villain: The death of Pamela Voorhees set a many massacre to come.
  • Ax-Crazy: Yup, Jason is definitely past the point of reasoning.
  • Bad Ass: Before death, he'd survived being hanged, taking an axe to the forehead (though the hockey mask helped), a machete to the collarbone, and was still moving after Tommy sliced half-way into his head. After returning as a revenant, he soaks up gunfire like a zombie 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 final chapters.
  • Bald of Evil: He started out with hair, but later films turned him bald until Jason X.
  • Beard of Evil: He had a messy and unkempt beard in Part 2.
  • Berserk Button: His mother being used against him. When it was revealed that Freddy manipulated him that way, 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 cruelest kills in the history of the franchise.
  • Big Bad: Part 2 onwards. Averted in Part 5.
  • Body Surf: 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).
  • Boring, but Practical: 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.
  • Born Unlucky: Friday the 13th is his birthday. For the most part, though, it's everyone around him who's unlucky.
  • Breakout Villain: In the original film, he was just a Red Herring child to his mother. Later films turned him into one of the most iconic characters of horrordom.
  • Chained by Fashion: He wears the chain that dragged him to the bottom of the Crystal Lake from Part VI around his neck in Part VII.
  • Clothes Make the Legend: The hockey mask.
  • Cool Mask: His iconic hockey mask, which he picks up in the third movie. In the reboot he outright abandons his makeshift sack-mask when he finds a hockey mask in Donnie's barn.
  • Covered with Scars: 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.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Jason starts out as a guy living in the abandoned Camp Crystal Lake and having no tolerance to those he perceives as intruders.
  • Cyborg: Becomes one in Jason X due to malfunctioning nanomachines using metal and other replacements to fix his lost tissue.
  • The Dead Have Eyes: Jason has one perfectly normal eye in Part VI (the other was destroyed by Tommy Jarvis), despite being dead.
  • Driven to Villainy: His mother's death worked as a catalyst for all the massacres to come.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Even if he is bloodthirsty killer, he still cares for his mother. So much so that he built an altar for her and presented his victims to her severed head. He (and his mom) are the page picture.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: It is stated that he doesn't strive for killing children or animals, though he exhibited these traits 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.
  • Evil Is Bigger: 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' 9" / 1,77 m).
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous: Being the Big Bad of the franchise tends to do that.
  • Evil Uncle: Fits the role when it was revealed that he has more relatives in Jason Goes to Hell.
  • Green Eyes: In Jason X, he is shown to have green eyes.
  • The Grotesque: Given he was born with hydrocephaly, drowned as a boy, and is always suffering from decomposition, unmasking him always reveals a Nightmare Face.
  • Healing Factor: 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.
  • Idiot Savant: Jason is described In-Universe as being mentally retarded, yet he has a natural instinct for not only 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 Dumb Muscle 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 Resurrective Immortality, The Undead, Immortality Inducer from Jason Goes to Hell, Legacy Immortality from Part V, and especially Joker Immunity.
  • Immune to Bullets: As a zombie. As a cyborg, the bullets don't even faze him.
  • Implacable Man: 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.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: He is an adept marksman and knife thrower.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Jason has used a lot of weapons, and he once killed one of his victims with a party horn.
  • Improvised Weapon: Jason alternates between using his trusty machete or a wide array of sharp things he finds along the way.
  • Jason Can Breathe in Space: In Jason X, but only because he doesn' really have to breathe anymore.
  • The Juggernaut: He started out as a very toughnote  backwoods killer. By Jason X he is a cyborg and almost indestructible.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Every now and then, whenever an Asshole Victim is involved.
  • Knight Templar: 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.
  • Machete Mayhem: Trope Codifier for it.
  • Made of Iron: Even while alive, he survived getting hung, stabbed in the shoulder, and an axe to the face.
  • The Man They Couldn't Hang: Chris in Part III tries off him by putting him on a noose, but Jason climbs down from it after Playing Possum for a moment.
  • Mighty Glacier: In Freddy vs. Jason, contrasting Freddy Krueger's Fragile Speedster status.
  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: Mirrors reveal Jason's true form inside the people he has possessed in Jason Goes to Hell.
  • Mobile Menace: Started out like this, and gradually turned into a blatant teleporter by the ending of Part VII.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: He is shown to have more teeth than humanly possible in parts VII and VIII.
  • Mysterious Past: Nothing is known about the time between his "drowning" in Crystal lake in 1957 and murder of Alice in 1979.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Gets ridiculous by the last third of the original series as he gains undead status, teleportation, body switching, regeneration and a cyborg body in that order.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: As a zombie. In fact to the point that not even Freddy Krueger can kill him!
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Taking into account all his appearances throughout the original series, he is by the end a cyborg zombie demon serial killer.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: He's a Revenant Zombie, driven by need to kill.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: 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 In-Universe, as early as his first "real" film.
  • Quizzical Tilt: His usual reaction to interesting things.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When he becomes a cyborg in Jason X, he has red eyes with two yellow irises.
  • Red Right Hand: His deformed features, which change film to film.
  • Scars Are Forever: 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.
  • The Scourge of God: Jason kills those first who are shown to be more promiscuous and so on.
  • Serial Killer: He's a serial spree killer, or alternatively a serial mass murderer.
  • Silent Antagonist: 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.
    • Then there's that one really bizarre moment in Part VIII where he talks with a little child's voice before getting washed by toxic waste.
  • Significant Birth Date: It was the 13th of some month, we're not sure, but it was definitely Friday. note 
  • Super Strength: He was a strong individual. In undeath, his strength is monstrous.
  • Two-Faced: 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.
  • Unstoppable Rage: What drives him. When he becomes a zombie in part 6, you can argue that he has become rage itself.
  • Undead Child: One that grew up.
  • Walking Spoiler: At least in the first film, since any info about him gives away the killer's motivation.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Freddy vs. Jason reveals that he had a fear of water when he was a child. It doesn't affect him as an adult (being a zombie and all), but Freddy gives it back to him to get the upper hand.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Jason is one of the best known slashers in horror history, but somewhere deep (very deep) inside is a Momma's Boy that deeply misses her and feels he has to please her. Also, as a dream sequence in Freddy vs. Jason showed, the campers were pretty relentless in picking on him when he was just a small, deformed boy.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When he was alive. After his death, he's shown being intrigued by children but ultimately leaving them alone.


Jason Voorhees (rebooted films)

As Turn of the Millennium 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

  • Ax-Crazy
  • Bald of Evil: This time from the very start.
  • Big Bad: Of the reboot.
  • Cool Mask: Even he thinks that hockey masks are cool, as he outright abandons his makeshift sack-mask when he finds one in Donnie's warehouse.
  • Crazy Survivalist: More so than in the original series.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: As per the original.
  • Genius Bruiser: This Jason acts more of a cunning predator rather as a mindless brute that the original one was.
  • Idiot Savant: 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 Psychopathic Manchild.
    • Older Than They Think: 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.
  • Lean and Mean: Not so tall as in Freddy vs. Jason, but he is now thinner than in the original series.
  • Machete Mayhem: As expected.
  • Red Right Hand: His deformed features.
  • Silent Antagonist
  • Tunnel King: 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 the reboot. It also works as a justification for his Mobile Menace tendencies.


Pamela Voorhees

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 nightmares that other people are having.

She has a brief appearance in the opening minutes of the reboot.

Played by: Betsy Palmer (first film and Part 2), Connie Hogan, Marlyn Poucher (both in Part III), Paula Shaw (Freddy vs. Jason) and Nana Visitor (the reboot).

  • Bad Samaritan / Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In her initial appearance, she seems nice and helpful person. She then asks Alice if she knew that a young boy drowned...
  • Berserk Button: Camp Crystal Lake itself after Jason's supposed death.
  • Big Bad: Of Part 1.
  • Blondes are Evil
  • Evil Chef: Only in a technicality, as she doesn't use her cook status for villainy.
  • Hearing Voices: According to supplementary materials.
  • Insane Equals Violent: "Went insane with grief" in this case equals death and mayhem for anyone who dares to reopen the place of her son's death.
  • Knife Nut: She has a bowie knife and puts it to good use.
  • Mama Bear: A psychotic example.
  • My Beloved Smother: Depending on what extra materials you are reading, she was either an incredibly smothering mother, or flat out incestous with Jason.
  • Off with His Head!: She died when she was decapitated by Alice. In Slow Motion.
  • Power Born of Madness: 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.
  • Split Personality: The way she talks to herself mimicking Jason's voice suggests this.
  • Start of Darkness: The comic miniseries Pamela's Tale.
  • Stranger Behind the Mask: There's only a brief mention of her before she appears and reveals that she is the one behind the murders.
  • Villainous Legacy: Killing and being killed in turn brought Jason back to the outside world, and now he kills for her.
  • Walking Spoiler: She has no presence in the story until the climax, and is this because of it.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: 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

*CRASH* WHAT SHE SAID.

"I thought you were talking to me."

The infamous copycat killer of 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 finding out, 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).

  • Big Bad: Of Part V.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Compared with Jason's Boring, but Practical style of killings, Roy surely uses what he can in a lot of different ways.
  • Cool Mask: Roy wears a hockey mask similar to Jason's, albeit it has blue markings instead of red ones.
  • Demonic Possession: 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 canon in the first place.
  • Determinator: Roy doesn't share Jason's inherent Made of Iron status, as he is shown to feel the injuries and pain inflicted upon him. Despite that, he still keeps on going until his death.
  • Disney Villain Death: Falls off the top of a barn loft onto a tractor harrows.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Went after everybody except the guy who killed his son.
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: He was onscreen unmasked for a minute, tops.
  • Expy: Of both Jason and Pamela Voorhees. His jumpsuit is also very Myers-esque. The latter fact itself is ironic as Morga had played Michael a couple of years later for a brief scene in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, thus making him the only actor to play both Michael Myers and to some extent, Jason Voorhees.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He falls to his doom when Tommy cuts his hand with his own machete.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Died when he fell on to tractor harrows sitting right next to the barn where Part V's climactic battle took place.
  • Implacable Man: Not as much as Jason, though.
  • Jack the Ripoff: Copies Jason's look for his murders.
  • Machete Mayhem: Machete is his main weapon in the climax, albeit one with sleeker design which real Jason usually used.
  • Motive Decay: Though his murderous rampage was started by the murder of his son, he didn't go to the one person who was directly involved.
  • Papa Wolf: A psychotic example, just like Pamela.
  • Sanity Slippage: His son's death drove him insane.
  • Silent Antagonist: He can speak, but he does not do so while dressed as Jason.
  • Spear Counterpart: To Pamela, as he shares her Freudian Excuse (death of son) and modus operandi (killing people, and putting the blame on the legend of Jason).
  • Tragic Villain: Suffered a mental breakdown after his son was killed.
  • Walking Spoiler: He has only two unmasked scenes prior to the reveal, so any mention of him will eventually spoil twist.


    Final Girls 


Alice Hardy

Poor Alice, she only survived to die after a Cat Scare.

"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 the reboot's opening may or may not be Alice.

Played by: Adrienne King

  • Decoy Protagonist: Of Part 2.
  • Final Girl: 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.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Jason kills her with the ice pick she had grabbed when she thought someone had broken in.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Named by the Adaptation: Her surname came from spin-off material.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: 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.
  • Never Found the Body: Because Jason took it with him.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: She also has the dubious honor of being victim number one in Jason's bodycount.


Ginny Field

Played by: Amy Steel


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.


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

  • Final Girl: Of The Final Chapter.
  • Improvised Weapon User: She's forced to defend her brother and herself with a hammer and a machete.

Pam Roberts

The assistant director at the halfway house Tommy Jarvis attends and the Final Girl of Part V.

Played by: Melanie Kinnaman


Megan Garris

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

Played by: Jennifer Cooke


Tina Shepard

Tina to them, "Carrie" to the fans and bringer of pain to Jason.

"I'm Tina, from next door."

Heroine of Part VII. When she was a little girl living near Crystal Lake, she accidentally killed her father with her latent psychic abilities after 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 gives Jason one of the biggest asskickings of his (un)life.

Played by: Jennifer Banko (as a child) and Lar Park-Lincoln

  • Action Girl: The most action-y of all the finals girls in Friday the 13th.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Broken Bird
  • Cassandra Truth: Tina tries to tell about Jason's presence, but Dr. Crews chalks it up to hallucinations.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Killed her dad by accident during a fight that her father had with her mom, causing Tina to lose control.

  • Playing with Fire: She can light things on fire and spread existing ones.

Rennie Wickham

Played by: Jensen Daggett (as a teen) and Amber Pawlick (as a child)

  • The Empath: In the tie-in comics it's revealed Rennie has empathtic abilities, explaining why she kept seeing visions of Jason.
  • Final Girl: Of Jason Takes Manhattan.

  • Final Girl: The actual one of the reboot.
  • I Will Find You: Clay wants to find at her at any cost and is even willing to fight Jason.

     Characters in Multiple Films 

Crazy Ralph

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 is convinced that God has given him a mission to warn everyone about Camp Crystal Lake's supposed "curse." He drives around the town with his bicycle to spread his doomsayings, much to the concern of his (mentioned, but unseen) wife and to the annoyance of everyone else.Iconic character to the franchise, he would later gain two Expies in the form of Abel the hobo in Part III and the unnamed deckhand in Part VIII.

Played by: Walt Gorney


Tommy Jarvis

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 hero 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 heavily traumatized in the process. He spends many years in mental institutions, and at his worst mentalstate almost becomes 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. This goes spectacularly wrong and he is forced to fight Jason once more.

Played by: Corey Feldman (The Final Chapter and Part V), John Shepherd (Part V) and Thom Mathews (Part VI).
