Other Characters

    Pamela Voorhees
"Don't stop, Jason! They deserve to die. Make them suffer like we did!"
Voiced by: Jennifer Ann Burton
For tropes from the films see here.

  • Ax-Crazy: She's the one chanting in Jason's ear to murder those poor counselors.
  • Berserk Button: Not putting Jason as your top priority counts as pressing this. And do not mention Jason's deformities.
  • Evil Laugh: Does this in all match outros.
  • Generation Xerox: The tapes reveal Pamela Voorhees and Dr. Jarvis had a long, hostile discussion over Jason's death. Little did they know their children would become archenemies decades later.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Like her role in the films, she is the reason that Jason kills people.
  • Irony: Though she was still somewhat hostile in the tapes, the only person Pam seemed to trust or attempt to be civil to after her son's alleged drowning was none other than Dr. Jarvis, the father of her son's future arch-enemy.
  • Mama Bear: Dear God.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's ambiguous if her spirit is actually talking to Jason or if he's just hearing her in his head. There's evidence for both.
  • Mission Control: For Jason. Maybe.
  • Posthumous Character: Is dead, her decapitated head in Jason's shack.
  • Pre-emptive Declaration: "This camp now has a death curse! Don't you ever forget that." Guess what Pamela and Jason do to Camp Crystal Lake in the coming years.
  • Sanity Slippage: Pretty much what the Pamela Tapes are supposed to show.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: When the cops piss her off, Pamela drops a Precision F-Strike on them in the tapes.
  • Tragic Villain: Oh God, this poor woman. Her entire life is one unforgiving Trauma Conga Line.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Her entire life. First, she's viciously raped by an anonymous man as a teenager. Then she gives birth to a mute hydrocephalic. Then she marries a strong man for protection, who instead beats her and Jason relentlessly. Then her son is bullied to death thanks to the negligence of the counselors.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Pretty accurate way to describe her interactions with the police in the tapes.
  • The Voice: Only appears as a voice in Jason's head and as her decapitated head in Jason's lair. She could have been playable but the stretch goal wasn't reached.


    Thomas "Tommy" Jarvis
Voiced by: Thom Matthews

For tropes from the films see here.

Once a counselor has used the CB Radio to call Tommy and at least two counselors have either died or escaped, one of them will respawn as Tommy.


  • Composure: 10/10
  • Luck: 10/10
  • Repair: 10/10
  • Speed: 10/10
  • Stamina: 10/10
  • Stealth: 10/10
  • Strength: 10/10

Starts off with:

  • A one-shot shotgun.
  • A pocket knife.
  • A first aid spray.
  • A walkie-talkie.
  • A map.

  • The Ace: Highest stats of everyone who isn't Jason and starts with a hunting shotgun. He's also the only character who can kill Jason after a series of steps are taken.
  • Auto-Revive: He essentially acts like this; a player can control him if they called him on the radio before dying.
  • Back for the Dead: Tommy can be killed by Jason, but like many things, it's dependent on how well the players do.
  • Badass Normal: He's a normal human who, with the right conditions, can KILL JASON.
  • Bad Dreams: The Jarvis Tapes reveals that Tommy has recurring nightmares over the years and is implied to be attacked by Freddy Kruger in his sleep.
  • Big Damn Heroes: His primary role arriving on the scene to put an end to Jason's rampage and save the remaining counselors. This can be very easily subverted.
  • The Bus Came Back: Tommy Jarvis of The Final Chapter, A New Beginning, and Jason Lives, is a playable character. He's unique in that he acts as an 'extra life' when called in, as an already dead player becomes him.
  • Downer Ending: The Jarvis Tapes reveal that after the events of Part VI, authorities and his psychiatrists have fully given up on trying to help him, seeking to either drug or restrain him to a padded room. He flees and tries to find others who could help clear his name, but is eventually captured and institutionalized in Springwood. Worse, it's heavily implied that he's now being attacked by a Lawyer-Friendly Cameo of Freddy Krueger in his sleep, worsening his mental state even more and possibly inspiring the events of Freddy vs. Jason.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: If one of the counselors succeeds in calling in help over a CB radio, Tommy Jarvis will arrive, controlled by one of the players who either escaped or died beforehand.
  • Experienced Protagonist: He's the closest the franchise has to a recurring protagonist.
  • Generation Xerox: The tapes reveal Pamela Voorhees and Dr. Jarvis had a long, hostile discussion over Jason's death. Little did they know their children would become arch-enemies decades later.
  • Good Counterpart: Once again, he is one to Jason. Tommy is a Badass Normal; Jason has superpowers due to his undead state. Tommy will only kill evil people; Jason will kill almost anybody. Tommy is a Tragic Hero; Jason is a Tragic Villain.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: If Tommy is killed within range of another counselor, the Tommy player will get "Sacrifice" XP.
  • Only I Can Kill Him: Tommy is the only character capable of landing the killing blow on Jason, though he can't do so alone as he needs at least one female counselor to stun him with Pamela's sweater first.
  • Sanity Slippage: The tapes reveal that by the end of Jason Lives, Tommy has become completely paranoid, believing "they" are conspiring against him to keep Jason under wraps (to a degree, he's right; a police officer expresses a belief that, like Roy Burns, Jason himself is merely a copycat, and Tommy's continuing ranting attracts more of them). The last tape reveals that by the modern day, he's almost completely divorced from reality.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: It is implied in the Tommy Tapes that Tommy is being terrorized by Freddy Krueger. That being taken into account, it would explain how Freddy found out about Jason, meaning that Tommy indirectly caused the events of Freddy vs. Jason, which had one of Jason's largest on-screen body counts.
  • Weirdness Magnet: According to the Tommy Tapes, not only is Tommy constantly victimized by Jason, but his constant shuffling around from institutions has also caused him to have run-ins with Freddy Krueger and Victor Crowley, as well as ending up in various other locations involved with supernatural serial killers, thus making Tommy either this, or extremely unlucky.

     Rob Dier

The First Victim. Rob's movie counterpart is the brother of Sandra Dier who has come to Crystal Lake to kill Jason in revenge. He is always killed in the opening cutscene to scatter the player characters.

  • Back for the Dead: Only exists to be murdered by Jason in a variety of ways to cause the other campers to flee.
  • The Cameo: Is a character from Part 4 who had a major role.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Suffers a couple of these, including...
    • Having his head turned the other way around.
    • Getting his back broken over Jason's knee.
    • Slammed onto a sharp tree stump.
    • Getting dragged into the lake and drowned.
    • Having a knife thrown into his head.
    • Burned to death in a campfire.
    • Getting his neck broken by a chokehold.
    • Being chopped over and over by a woodcutting axe.
  • Irony: Rob's movie counterpart is actively seeking Jason as part of a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. Like in Part 4, Rob completely fails at this task and is the only Counselor who can't play a role in killing or even slowing down Jason.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Rob Dier is the person Jason murders at the beginning of every game and clues the other counselors to beat it.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: His iconic movie death at the hands of Jason with a claw hammer in Single Challenge Mode is given to Kenny.
  • You Killed My Father: Unmentioned in the game but his sister Sandra was murdered by Jason.


How well does it match the trope?
