The Plucky Comic Relief Chewie has been well-received by critics who gave this film both positive and negative reviews, some considering him to be one of the most likable characters on screen and having a "memorable death."
Richie from the prologue tends to be pretty popular as well, mainly for being a Nice Guy and having some genuinely funny moments.
Funny Moments: When Jason has Chewie cornered, the latter offers him a hockey stick, stating "it completes your outfit".
Just Here for Godzilla: Arguably the first (and possibly only) thing everyone will say why they watched this movie was to watch Jason kill the entire cast.
Nightmare Fuel: Jason's face; the designs have run anywhere from unsettling to disgusting in the originals, but they outdid themselves in this one.
Moe: The Cutie Jenna is outright adorable without having to do any Fanservice unlike Amanda, Bree and Chelsea, possibly her actress Danielle Panabaker is naturally like that.
Older Than They Think: Jason being a cunning and agile killer unlike the supernatural zombie Jason, which is what the audiences are most familiar with. 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.
