Villain Overview
There's a legend around here. A killer buried, but not dead. A curse on Crystal Lake, a death curse. Jason Voorhees' curse. They say he died as a boy, but he keeps coming back. Few have seen him and lived. Some have even tried to stop him. No one can. People forget he's down there, waiting...
~ The narrator (voiced by Walt Gorney, who played Crazy Ralph) about Jason Voorhees.
"Mommy, don't let me drown! Mommy?"
~ Jason Voorhees as a child in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

Jason Voorhees is a serial killer and the main antagonist of the Friday the 13th franchise. Although he wasn't the villain in the first film, he would later maintain the role starting in Friday the 13th Part 2 and its subsequent installments, as well as its remake.

He is a deformed, now-undead murderer wearing a hockey mask to cover his deformities, and killing those that trespass Crystal Lake as well as to avenge his mother Pamela whom he had witnessed get decapitated. When he was a human, Jason was exceptionally durable to kill, but he did feel pain when attacked. It was not until when he got resurrected from the dead by his killer, Tommy Jarvis, that he gained complete immortality and gained supernatural abilities. Jason is notable for using a machete as his weapon of choice, but he alternatively uses other weapons and/or other methods of killing.

Personality

Jason is an inexpressive and difficult man to read, even without his mask. Jason is also utterly unrelenting, pursuing his desired quarry without ever backing down, not even allowing grievous bodily harm inflicted upon him to hinder his determination. Despite his crude and simple nature, he does experience intense emotions, though his behavior is more akin to a feral-minded beast defending its territory. Even if Crystal Lake where to change its name, he would stick to the stretch of land, and kill any trespassers without so much as a pang of remorse doing so. While Jason is mentally ill, his mindset is completely unlike that of anyone else, and the only remotely human aspect of this unhinged man is his attachment to his mother. Jason blindly complies with her, as she was the only person to show any kindness towards him as a child. He is not exactly the brightest machete in the cabin, either, as he was easily manipulated by Freddy Krueger and he also suffers irrational aquaphobia. These weakness where both exploited by Freddy Kruger. Although he is a very simple-minded and rather slow individual, Jason in outright intelligent. Despite his lack of normal thought-processes, he does exhibit excellent stealth and cunning, as well as being a skilled master archer. Despite his practical knowledge, Jason is also rather imaginative and dull-minded, as he cannot grasp the fact that he is himself immortal, and believes he can drown, despite the fact that he is undead. Freddy's facade as his mother also fooled him. Interestingly, Jason despises seeing teenagers drinking, taking drugs, and he is especially disgusted by sex, presumably the reasons are these were what lead to his supposed drowning as a child. However, due to the fact he does not even try to socialize, he may simply be misanthropic and reclusive, having no desire to assimilate himself into society. This mindset will have undoubtedly spawned from all of the abuse that he was dealt with as a child.

Character Description

Jason Voorhees is a large, muscular man recognized by his hockey mask (which has become an icon in horror) and use of a machete as his weapon of choice. He is also notable for being a masterful and authoritative weapon provisionary, able to use seemingly anything around him to brutally kill his victims. Unlike his predecessor Michael Myers, he does seem to have soft spots around animals, children, or anyone not involved in his missions.

In each film he appears in, his actual face differs, whether past or present:

  • Jason has appeared multiple times as a child, starting in the original film, though none of the appearances since were ever consistent.
    • In the original film, portrayed by Ari Lehman, Jason appears briefly at the end. His deformities consist of a large, bald oblong cranium with asymmetric eyes and an oblong mouth which caused a severe overbite.
    • In the eighth film, played by Timothy Mirkovich, Jason's child form appears repeatedly in hallucinations and once near the end of the film. The design of his child-self confusingly changes; he is first shown as a normal child with no deformities and full hair, then with hair with his deformed eye on the left side instead of the right, and lastly at the end resembling somewhat of the original design minus the deformed eye on the left.
    • In Freddy vs. Jason, the design of child Jason takes on a less extreme version of the first film's deformities.
  • In the second film, Jason's deformities remain somewhat consistent with the original portrayal by Ari Lehman. This time, his upper jaw is straighter, but tilted upwards and is filled with rotting, yellow teeth. He has a scattered mass of terminal hair on his chin, neck and cheeks, as well as a large mass of red, messy hair on his head. He has a rectangular bulge of bone on his forehead that skews his eye slightly, one of the only deformities that stays consistent throughout all of the films. He wears a sack over his head with a single eye-hole, which is wrapped with rope around his neck to keep it in place.
  • In the third film, his appearance leans more to the original design than his appearance in Part 2. Despite taking place a day after the events of the previous film, his head is now completely bald and bulbous like the original, with visible forehead deformities, and his right ear warped. His deformed eye is now shifted more below. He has a slight cleft lip with deformed gums. The film marks the debut of Jason wearing the hockey mask, which itself has one red chevron above the eyebrows and two pointing upwards on the cheeks. As the film progress, the mask gets more worn and scratched, and receivies an axe wound to his head which would remain on the character and his mask in subsequent sequels. 
  • In the fourth film, Jason's design remains much more faithful to his original design from the first film. His skin appears to be slightly pale from the wounds he received in the previously film, with his left cheek now wrinkled and seared. His mouth is now broken outward, with his teeth jutting out and overlapping. His shifted eye, more crooked like the original, is now bloodshot to give Jason a more uncanny gaze. In the end of the film, his left normal eye is destroyed when Jarvis slams a machete into the side of his head, and it would be absent from all subsequent appearances until Jason X. His mask remains the same from the previous film, only much more worn and damaged with the bloody axe cut on the top left. The top chevron is half-worn off and the lower chevrons begin to wear off completely by the climax.
  • The fifth film did not properly feature Jason, although he did appear in hallucinations. Although his face is never seen, his skin is dark and composing with worms crawling through the eyes of his mask. The mask is similar to the ones from the previous two films, albeit rounder and the top chevron is no longer half-worn off.
  • In the sixth, Jason seizes his mask from Jarvis when he is shortly resurrected from the grave. His skin is pitch black and heavily decomposed, covered in holes and tight wrinkles. This is the first of two Jason appearances that lacks the deformed eye, which is replaced with a normal functioning eye instead while the left eye remains rotten and completely destroyed. His mouth and left eyebrow have the skin rotted off completely, exposing bone and his axe cut, as well as his mangled teeth. The skin of Jason's mouth and left eyebrow have rotted off completely, exposing bone and his axe cut, as well as Jason's teeth. Jason's mouth and left eyebrow have the skin rotted off completely, exposing. His mask is the same as the one from the fifth movie, with the axe cut no longer bloody and the top chevron slightly wears off as the film progresses.
  • In the seventh film, Jason has reached a middle ground between decomposed and regeneration. His head has torn skin and pus-filled wounds all over it. His right eye is once again shifted, but to a less severe degree, in order to allow Kane Hodder to properly see through the makeup. The nose portion of his skull has a rather odd, doubled-over deformity on it. His mouth has far less teeth in it and his cheek has ripped open, allowing his incisors to be visible even when Jason's mask is on. On the subject of the mask, it is supposedly the same one from the previous film and has suffered severe water erosion. It retains the chevron on the forehead as well as the axe wound. Additionally, it now has a large chunk of the left cheek missing from the motor boat attack of the previous film, helping to show off Jason's exposed mouth. The mask is broken in half in this film.
  • In the eighth film, Jason's seems to have reached a stable point. His wounds no longer appear infected and, despite him still being undead and having sickly grey skin, he seems to have healed a fair bit, the axe wound on his head having formed a scar. His left eye seems to have tried to regenerate to a degree, with his eye socket being healed and a blob of pus oozing out of it. His jaw is similarly opened like in the seventh film, but they've stabilized somewhat. His teeth are gone, sans a few, and his nose bones lack the doubled effect from the last movie. He gets a new mask in this film, with a sleeker chevron on the forehead, and for the first time since the fourth film, new chevrons on the cheeks. The mask has the axe wound, and, uniquely, has the eye holes blacked out so Jason's eyes could not be seen, likely to cover up Kane Hodder's eyes better, as the prosthetics were much harder to see through than before.
  • In the ninth film, Jason's normal appearance has his mask fused to his face, thus Jason is never seen unmasked in the film; admist multiple variations on the idea have surfaced, the most prominent being the recent variant for the Friday the 13th: The Game, and the other two more well-known variants being prop heads. The mask appears to be burnt to a degree with the axe wound, and the wear from Par 7 on the left cheek, as well as missing the two cheek chevrons. Two variants of said mask exist, one that is mostly intact and another version with the right eye hole broken out through the side of the mask.
  • In the tenth film, Jason's mask is no longer fused to his face, although his face seems to have suffered severe rot and blistering, likely from the toxic waste in the part 8 finale. The mask itself is smaller, darker, dirtier and more angular than the previous versions, appearing much colder and more unnerving. Additionally, Uber Jason has a refined, metallic mask melded into his face with metal straps fusing it to his head. He also has both of his eyes back in this film.
  • In Freddy vs Jason, his head resembles his kid form in that film, with an enlarged cranium. His skin is also rotted to a coal-black color, and has small growing hairs on the back of his head. Although he is never seen unmasked in the film, there are behind-the-scenes photos on the internet showcasing the whole design.

Powers and Abilities

Natural Abilities

  • Super Durability: Jason is extremely hard to kill, able to withstand injuries such as stab wounds, bullet wounds, fire (to an extent), and anything else.
  • Super Strength: Jason also has super strength, as he can lift people up above the ground, crush their heads, or smash through walls — similar to Michael Myers
  • Inhuman Survivability: Jason can survive almost everything, he was hit by an axe to the head, hanged, stabbed by a machete, smashed on the head with a computer monitor, hammer claw through the neck, and a machete slammed into his head.
  • Limited Regeneration: Jason has survived various injuries that would disable normal people, and continue his killing sprees with full activity. Though decapitation and big explosions can kill him, similar to Michael Myers. Although, it seems that nothing can truly kill Jason forever.
  • Pain Suppression: Jason is shown to resist physical pain, such as getting his hand cut, his leg stabbed or getting hit in the head with an axe.
  • Stealth Tactics: Jason's killing style mostly relies on stealth to get to his victims without anyone realizing that he is there. Most notably shown when he can kill many people in one house without anyone hearing him, while planting dead bodies everywhere without making a sound.
  • Machete Proficiency: Jason's most signature weapon is his machete which he uses to stealth take downs, slice, stab and slashing methods.
  • Feral Mind: By being consumed by rage over the death of his mother, Jason will kill anybody who enters Camp Crystal Lake, including teenagers, elders, pregnant women, and almost anyone else. Although children and animals do not seem to be in Jason's interests.
  • Superhuman Tracking: Jason can track people down at great distances whenever they are out on a ship, in a police station or a diner.
  • Superhuman Accuracy: Jason can throw objects at great distances, such as throwing a machete on fire through a cornfield.
  • Speed Swimming: Despite the fact, Jason could not swim when he was a kid, but when he was full-grown, Jason was able to catch people quicker when they're on a boat in the lake at a distance.
  • Escape Intuition: Jason can break through binds and fetters, and able to escape any captivity such as getting caught by the government.
  • Intelligence: While being mentally disabled, Jason has seemed to overcome his mental handicaps. He avoided detection for nearly 30 years and built a shack all by himself, this actually points out that he is quite intelligent.
  • Soft Spots. Jason seems to show his soft spots around children, babies and around people who have not entered Crystal Lake. This is mostly noticeable in the sixth film, where he continues to pursue the protagonists, seemingly having no interest in simple civilians (although he did kill several people who tried to help them).

Supernatural Powers

  • Resurrection: If he is defeated, he can always be resurrected. When he is resurrected becomes more powerful. This power is noticeably similar to a Zenkai (from Dragon Ball Z).
  • Immortality: Jason can seemingly never die permanently as no matter what happens, Jason will never die forever. Although, being condemned to hell seems to be able to trap Jason.
  • Superhuman Strength: Upon being resurrected, Jason's strength has increased to the point he can rip a man's heart out with his bare hands, or knock a man's head of with a single punch.
  • Regenerative Durability: Upon being resurrected, Jason can endure far more damage and heal from whatever injury he receives, such as getting impaled by his own machete and recovered from it.
  • Bullet Immunity: Jason is completely immune to bullets, he was brought down by a shotgun but still kept getting up.
  • Numbness: In his undead state, Jason's pain receptors seem to be heavily dulled. He is shown to be able to endure extreme amounts of physical harm without slowing down at all.
  • Invulnerability: In his undead state, Jason is completely immune to any physical damage he receives.
  • Supernatural Survivability: Jason can survive any situation due to being resurrected, such as being set on fire, electrocution and getting blown up.
  • Hypnotizing Heart: If he is blown to bits, his heart can hypnotize them into eating it.
    • Possession: Upon eating the heart, the person will be possessed by his soul and still maintaining his abilities, he can only be reborn through another Voorhees, he can also possess other people through oral contact leaving the former host to gruesomely melt away. He seems to lose this ability once he is killed by his niece, Jessica Kimble, when she stabbed him in the heart with a special dagger and he was dragged to Hell (as in Jason X, having his head blown off by Kay-Em 14 apparently killing him).
    • Parasite Physiology: If the host he possessed is somehow killed, like severing the throat, Jason will take the appearance of parasite-like being (called a HellBaby) and picks his next living target.
  • Teleportation: It is unknown on how he got it, Jason seems to teleport to get to his victims, it was shown when a man was climbing up a ladder but Jason was, instantly on the ladder, able to thrown him off.
  • Oxygen Independence: Due to being resurrected, Jason can survive without the need for oxygen. This power does have its limits, however, because Freddy Krueger was able to nearly drown him in the dream world.
  • Supernatural Senses: Jason seems able to sense when people enter Camp Crystal Lake and seems to know exactly where to find anyone in his territory.

Bionic Powers

Bionic Physiology: In Jason X, when his head, arm and leg was destroyed, his body was rebuilt into the cybernetic Über-Jason by a regenerative nanotechnology process.

  • Body Modification and Limb Replacement: Due to being rebuilt, Jason's body was modified into a cyborg and had his right replaced with a cybernetic arm.
  • Space Survivability: Due to being rebuilt, Jason was able to survive the vacuum of space.

Friday the 13th: The Game

SaviniJasonPureHD

Savini Jason

Jason appears as the playable antagonist in Friday the 13th: The Game, based on the film franchise. Players can select and play as any of the Jasons from the films once unlocked in-game (with the exception of Jason from Freddy vs. Jason or the remake).

Savini Jason

Savini Jason is an variation of the character designed by Tom Savini (who worked on the special make-effects on the first and fourth films) for Friday the 13th: The Game. The design is based on the concept on what Jason Voorhees would've looked like if he had escaped from hell from the events of Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.

In other media

  • Jason appeared in several Robot Chicken episodes, including the episode That Hurts Me, alongside slashers Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Ghostface, Pinhead, and Leatherface. He was playing charades with Michael and Leatherface (none of them talk).
  • He also appeared in the Family Guy episode It Takes A Village Idiot, and I Married One. He is seen

    talking in an interview about how the lake is cleaned up (and kills two people during the interview). He is also the boss of a store, threatening to kill the clerk if she screws up. When a dead kid is discovered at Camp Fresh Start in "Killer Queen" everyone looks at Jason who says he is just there to drop off his son, Justin. Justin tries to stab Jason but he points out that does not work on him.
  • He appeared in the Angry Video Game Nerd's review of Friday the 13th, constantly forcing the Nerd to play the game and only say good things about it. He is eventually killed when the Nerd attacks him with an NES controller and blow his head off with a Zapper.
  • Jason is a playable character in the flash game Bloody Rage.
  • He also appeared in the fan video The Nightmare Ends on Halloween, sent by Pinhead to kill Freddy Krueger.
  • A parody of him named Mason appears in the spoof movie Stan Helsing. Mason has a bigger hockey mask and a red shirt, and wields a hockey stick. He is defeated when Stan pulls on his mask, and is eaten by a dog, along with Michael (who is renamed Michael Cryers).
  • Jason also appeared in the Imaginationland Trilogy of South Park, where he appeared amongst all the other evil imaginary characters. He at one point stated that he never wanted to meet the kid who had dreamed up the Christmas Critters and later stabbed out Strawberry Shortcake's eye.
  • He makes an appearance in The Simpsons along with Freddy Krueger. Instead of the Simpsons coming in the traditional way they die in different ways. Homer is crushed against a wall. Lisa goes into the garage and Bart falls off his skateboard. Inside Freddy comments that they should "be here by now." and although he never speaks in the movies, Jason replies "Aaah. What are they gonna do?" and they watch the episode. Jason also had a brief cameo in the Treehouse of Horror V segment, The Shinning, where he can be seen dragging Homer out of a large storage room with other horror icons.
  • Jason, along with Freddy Krueger and Leatherface, was a sub-icon at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights: Carnival of Carnage in 2007. He was one of Jack the Clown's minions during the event.
  • Jason also appears in the end of the Looney Tunes short Box-Office Bunny which was released in 1990, he confronts Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd when they are trapped in the projection screen by Bugs Bunny.
  • In the Doctor Who TV movie in 1996, The Master's remains turn into a creature similar to the creature Jason becomes in Jason Goes to Hell, but is cobra-like but enters a body in a similar manner, a possible reference to the latter.

  • A parody of him, known only as the Hockey Mask Wearing Freak, appears in Eddsworld episode Eddsworld Halloween Special 2007 where he acts similar to Jason.
  • An inspiration of him and Leatherface appeared in the animated series Dan Vs. as an unnamed character called the Hockey-Masked Maniac, only on the episode called Dan Vs. The Family Camping Trip.

Mortal Kombat X

Jason Voorhees appears as a DLC in Mortal Kombat X, the tenth installment of the Mortal Kombat series.  His appearance in-game is modeled closely after his appearance in Freddy vs. Jason. Interestingly, when unmasked in a PC mod, his face appears to be completely normal and bald instead of deformed.

Reception

Alongside Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger, Jason is considered an icon of the horror/slasher genre. He was nominated in AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains and Wizard Magazine rated him the 26th greatest villain of all time.

Portrayals

Much like Michael Myers, he was played by various stuntmen;

  • Ari Lehman - Friday the 13th
  • Steve Daskewisz (hooded) and Warrington Gillette (unmasked) - Part II
  • Richard Brooker - Part III
  • Ted White - The Final Chapter

Trivia

  • Jason has probably the highest body count in horror film history. According to the documentary His Name Was Jason, Jason killed over 300 people in the course of the films. Jason Voorhees has taken the lives of (at least) 152 people. Michael Myers follows behind with (at least) 81 people.
  • He appears twice as a cameo in Ready Player One, alongside Freddy Krueger and Chucky. Much like in Mortal Kombat X, his appearance in the film is modeled after his look in Freddy vs. Jason.
  • Unlike his counterpart Michael Myers, Jason started off as a mortal serial killer, then became immortal through his resurrection in Part VI: Jason Lives.
