* AngstWhatAngst: Rowan has been in cryostasis for over 400 years and takes it really well, even though everything in her past life is now completely gone.
** From her attitude, so soon after revival, it could be justified as shock. She's certainly stunned by the news, and then Jason takes her mind off it.
* 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. Either it's the absolute worst film in the entire series for abandoning any attempt to be serious and just going for the absolute craziness of Jason in space... or it's one of the better entries for exactly the same reason.
* 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]].
* 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 this not the last time showed up in a work with 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 actually called Uber Jason. ''[[Comicbook/FridayThe13thJasonVsJasonX Jason vs. Jason X]]'' comic threw this out of the window for the sake of name recognition.
* SoBadItsGood: Jason is in space! What's not to love?
* {{Squick}}: The freezing of the female scientist's face and then having Jason SMASH it to pieces is very sickening.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The opening credits.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: The sequel novel ''Death Moon''. The author has a habit of going on nonsensical rants that have nothing to do with what little story there is. There's one part that's just pages and pages talking about nothing but ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' star Elsa Lanchester in a disjointed fashion...
