* AngstWhatAngst: Rowan was in cryostasis for over 400 years, but she takes it well, even though everything in her past life is now completely gone. Granted, the knowledge that Jason Voorhees is on the Grendel with her would skew priorities away from that.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3Ommf67jlY&feature=related X is the Loneliest Number]]", the end credits theme.
* ContestedSequel: Probably more than any other ''Friday the 13th'' film. Some fans think this is the absolute worst film in the entire series because it abandoned any attempt to be serious and leaned into the absolute craziness of Jason in space. Others think it is one of the better entries in the series [[{{Camp}} because it abandoned any attempt to be serious and leaned into the absolute craziness of Jason in space]].
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: This film is one for Kane Hodder. Put aside how the film was received for a moment--for many fans, Hodder ''is'' Jason Voorhees. In what would be his last performance (to date) as Jason, he got ''top billing'' in the cast list.
* EnsembleDarkHorse:
** Janessa certainly has her fanbase. Yes Janessa, we do want you!
** Brodski as well. He refuses to die, [[spoiler:to the point that he manages to kill Jason for good]].
* FridgeBrilliance: Rowan's attitude of not showing any concern from being in cryostatis for over 400 years can be justified as being in shock. She is initially stunned by the news, though. Then Jason takes her mind off it.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** People in bug-eyed masks and long red coats scavenging a dead planet is rather amusing after seeing ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''.
** Jason would later show up as a DLC character in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', making it the second time he showed up in the tenth installment of a series that also had the letter "X" in the title.
* IAmNotShazam: ''Jason X'' refers to the fact that this is the tenth ''Friday the 13th'' film. Jason's cyborg form is called Uber Jason. The ''[[Comicbook/FridayThe13thJasonVsJasonX Jason vs. Jason X]]'' comic promptly ignored all that for the sake of name recognition.
* ItWasHisSled: Jason turning into a cyborg was originally supposed to be a surprise, but the marketing of the film--including the poster--did all it could to spoil that twist.
* NarmCharm: This was intentional with Jason dealing with the virtual campers. When he is killing them by swinging them around in sleeping bags, all you hear from them is "Ow! Ow! Ow!"
* NightmareFuel: Kay-Em's SlasherSmile after she upgrades to fight Jason has to count. When an android is having fun...
* SignatureScene:
** The liquid nitrogen kill. The developers of ''VideoGame/FridayThe13thTheGame'' even wanted to include it as a stretch goal on the Kickstarter.
** Jason being revived as a cyborg.
** Brodski [[spoiler: riding Jason into the atmosphere]].
* SoBadItsGood: Unlike the more grounded previous films--well, "grounded" relative to this film--Jason is now in space! What's not to love?
** Many fans believe the filmmakers knew exactly what kind of movie they were making and eventually embraced the narm-y, shark-jumpy premise while using the setting to deliver a bunch of awesome kills.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: Janessa dies when she is sucked out an airlock through a grate. It happens off-screen, but there is no sound effect, and the GoryDiscretionShot is so quick, you might actually miss what happened.
* {{Squick}}: Two words are all we need: "liquid nitrogen".
* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler:Brodski only dies when he kills Jason for good.]]
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The opening credits qualify, as they take place inside Jason's body and bloodstream.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: In the sequel novel ''Death Moon'', the author has a habit of going on nonsensical rants that have nothing to do with what little story is in the book. One part is just pages and pages of the author ranting about ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' star Elsa Lanchester in a disjointed fashion.
