Jason Voorhees is the titular main antagonist of the Friday the 13th franchise. Despite not being the antagonist in the first film, he would later maintain the role starting in Friday the 13th Part 2 and in the 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 wasn't 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 can use alternate weapons and/or other methods of killing as well.
Much like Michael Myers, he was played by various stuntmen; the most recognized to play the role is Kane Hodder. He was portrayed by Steve Daskewisz in Part 2, the late Richard Brooker in Part III, Ted White in The Final Chapter, Tom Morga in A New Beginning (dreams and illusions only), C.J. Graham in Jason Lives, Kane Hodder in The New Blood, Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell, and Jason X, and Ken Kirzinger in Freddy vs. Jason.
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 some 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 Kruger 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 doesn't 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.
Camp Crystal Lake
Friday the 13thJason Voorhees is an indirect antagonist in this film and is only present through flashbacks. When the protagonist Alice met his mother Pamela, she recounted how she and her husband had Jason born as a hydrocephalic, making him physically deformed. Because of this, his mother never took him to school, and was extremely overprotective of him.
Pamela later took a job as a cook at Camp Crystal Lake, where the other campers would frequently bully Jason because of his deformity. Jason drowned when his bullies pushed him into Crystal Lake.
The camp counselors were unaware of what was happening, as they were busy partying and having sex elsewhere at the time. Pamela proceeded to kill many of the camp counselors and campers in later years for vengeance over Jason's drowning. As soon as she finishes recounting his story, Pamela directs her anger towards Alice, viewing her as another camper conniving in the suffering of Jason. Alice denies this, but Pamela doesn't listen to her and violently attacks her. After a violent and bloody confrontation, Alice finally decapitates Pamela.
Friday the 13th Part 2His first actual appearance (other than a flashback and a dream sequence) was in Friday the 13th Part 2, as the killer seen wearing a sack over his face to hide his deformities. Supposedly, Jason apparently never drowned in the lake and had been surviving all these years as a hermit in the woods. According to legend, Jason stumbled upon witnessing his mother decapitated by Alice, the sole survivor of Pamela's spree. Taking revenge, he tracked down Alice a month later and murdered her with an ice pick to her temple. Since then, Camp Crystal Lake had been off-limits to everyone.
Five years later, he discovered the whereabouts of a nearby training camp within the area of Camp Crystal Lake, and began to murder many of the camp counselors as well as a local named Crazy Ralph, who always warned people about Crystal Lake being doomed. Eventually, he fought two of the remaining counselors named Ginny and Paul inside his makeshift shack, which contained a shrine where his mother's head and clothing were put onto and having bodies of his victims surrounding it. While Jason was distracted into fighting Paul, Ginny managed to slam the machete used by his mother into his shoulder before escaping.
Friday the 13th Part IIISurviving the events from Part 2, Jason headed down to a nearby store to steal new clothing, and murdering the owner and his wife. Nearby, he then hid inside a barn at a house in the Crystal Lake area, named Higgins Haven. When the inhabitants of the house returned to the area, he once again returned to his killings and murdered many of the inhabitants in the area, including three hostile bikers. During his spree, he managed to take and don a hockey mask from a nearby victim named Shelly.
While fighting the last survivor Chris Higgins, she remembered him as the same man who previously attacked her in the woods two years ago, just before hanging the killer with a noose. When he freed himself and while in the process of finally killing one of the bikers named Ali who had awoken from being unconscious by him, Chris then striked him in the head with an axe, supposedly killing him.
Friday the 13th: The Final ChapterDespite his wound, Jason supposedly managed to survive and revived inside the morgue, where he kills an attendant and a nurse before escaping and setting out to the Crystal Lake again. After escaping, he targeted a nearby rental house owned by a group of teenagers for the weekend, across from a house owned by the Jarvis family.
He once again proceeded to brutally slaughter many of the residents in the area, including a hitchhiker and the older vengeful brother of one of his previous victims, whom he had been tracking down Jason since then. After murdering everyone else, Jason continued into targeting the last two survivors, Tommy and Trish Jarvis. In the fight, Tommy manages to distract Jason into shaving his head, resembling Jason at a younger age. While distracted, Trish took a machete and slammed into the side of his head, splitting his head upon falling down into the blade. As Trish and Tommy embrace, he sees Jason's fingers slowly move and continues to hack at his body with the machete.
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning
Although Jason Voorhees did not appear as the killer in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, he is seen in dream sequences and hallucinations by an adult Tommy Jarvis, five years later since the demise of Jason. Instead, a different antagonist named Roy Burns appeared in the film, using Jason's identity to avenge the death of his son Joey and murdering the nearby residents of a halfway home named Pinehurst, as a copycat killer. Burns was eventually killed and in the process, his true identity was revealed to the characters and audience.
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason LivesYears later, it is believed by authorities that Jason was cremated, but this is proven false when an adult Tommy finds Jason's burial with his friend Allen Hawes and attempts to burn him. While stabbing at his corpse with a metal pole, lightning strikes at the pole connected into Jason, and soon brings the mass murderer back to life as a strong zombie. Allen attempts to knock Jason unconscious with a shovel, but it shatters to pieces as soon as it hits his head. Jason rips Hawes' heart out while Tommy flees to his car. Jason then dons his hockey mask once again. Jason returns to his vengeful killing spree and murders many of the victims at Camp Crystal Lake (renamed to Forest Green), including the camp counselors, a gravedigger, five paintball players,but spares the little children but had a fascination with one little girl. and killed (once he finally realized that Jason had returned) Sheriff Garrison and two of his officers before Tommy used a boulder and chain to chain him to the bottom of Crystal Lake. To finish him off, Tommy and the sheriff's daughter Megan activate a boat propeller's blade and uses it on Jason's face, cutting off part of his mask and breaking his neck.
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New BloodJason was accidentally reawakened by Tina Shepard, who used her telekinetic powers in an attempt to resurrect her father, who drowned in Crystal Lake. His chain was snapped, allowing him to return and kill Jane and Michael, whose birthday several people were celebrating at Camp Crystal Lake and most of the people at the party, as well as Tina's mother and her doctor, Dr. Crews, until only Tina and Nick were the only ones left. Tina fought Jason off using her telekinesis, and eventually snapped his mask in two, revealing his hideous zombie-esque face. Eventually, Tina summoned the spirit of her father, who dragged Jason to the bottom of Crystal Lake and chained him there again.
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes ManhattanJason was reawakened by a boat on Crystal Lake when its anchor caught on a power line, shocking him and releasing him from his prison. He killed the boat's inhabitants Jim and Suzy, donning a new mask from then, and stowed aboard the S.S. Lazarus, a cruise ship on its way to New York occupied by several high school graduates. Jason killed all of them as they reached New York, including the teacher Charles McCulloch (who, like Garris, denied Jason's return until moments before his death), leaving only Rennie and her boyfriend Sean. He eventually chased them into the sewer, which flooded with toxic wastes and swept him away, despite the survivors having a hallucination where it transformed him into his child self.
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final FridayThe NYPD notifies the FBI of Jason Voorhees. The FBI, finally aware of his existence, set up a sting operation and successfully managed to shoot him down and blow him to pieces just before he could kill an FBI agent luring him to the shooting spot. However, not even this could kill him by now. His heart lived on, and at the morgue, it hypnotized a coroner into eating it. Jason's spirit possessed the coroner.
In the form of a worm-like creature, Jason's soul transferred to different people to possess them (gruesomely melting and killing his previous host once he leaves them because Jasons rage was too strong for their bodies), and killed several people in an attempt to be reborn through Diana Kimble, her daughter Jessica, or her baby daughter Stephanie, because, as the only remaining blood relatives of Jason, they are the only ones he can be reborn through. Likewise, only Diana or Jessica can truly destroy him by striking at his heart with a mystical dagger. Bounty Hunter Creighton Duke told all this to the film's male protagonist, Steven (Jessica's boyfriend) and Steven told Jessica everything Steven was told by Duke. Jason managed to kill Diana by accident on which he was trying to kill Steven and eventually he managed to discover her corpse at the Voorhees house and was reborn through it.
He then briefly grabbed Jessica in her top before He then killed Duke with a bear hug which crushed him and Jason then went after Jessica and Steven again whom pushed him out the window and then he fought Steven, before Jessica stabbed him in the heart, and he was dragged to Hell. As Steven and Jessica walk off together with their baby, Jason's masks is seen remained on the surface. But Freddy Krueger's hand grabs his discarded mask and pulls it into the ground.
Freddy vs. Jason
Contrary to what Creighton Duke believed not even this could prevent him from being resurrected, this time not by lightning, but by someone from inside Hell itself. In Freddy vs. Jason, Freddy Krueger brought Jason back to life, disguised as Mrs. Voorhees, so he could kill for him at Elm Street so people would believe that he returned (since their fear gives Freddy his power, and if no one remembers him, he cannot come back). Once Jason spread enough fear around, Freddy was able to return, but Jason did not stop killing, stealing his potential victims from him. So Freddy possessed someone to inject Jason with tranquilizer so he could enter his dreams and kill him.
In the meantime, Lori Campbell and Will Rollins were taking Jason to Camp Crystal Lake so he could fight Freddy and have a home field advantage. Freddy nearly killed Jason before he woke up. When Lori pulled Freddy out of the dream world, Freddy and Jason engaged in a bloody battle, while Freddy landed numerous hits on Jason, they did little more than irritate him and failed to slow him down until the battle moved to the docks where Jason brutally slashed Freddy in submission.
Jason was about to finish Freddy off when Freddy uses his glove to slice Jason's fingers off forcing him to drop his machete. Taking Jason's weapon, Freddy sliced him with both the Machete and his glove and eventually drives the blades of his glove in Jason's eyes, still not able to kill him. The two continue to fight and as the fight progresses Jason pulls Freddy's arm out of its socket and Freddy drives the Machete into Jason's chest. Jason then punches a hole into Freddy's stomach, and the two only stop fighting when Lori sets fire to a large number of propane tanks with gasoline, the resulting explosion sending both into the lake.
Freddy emerges a short time later with Jason's machete, to kill Lori and Will, but the two are unintentionally saved by Jason who stabs Freddy with his own severed arm, after which Jason sank below Crystal Lake after Lori decapitated Freddy and threw Jason's machete into the lake and left with Will. However, Jason survived, and walked out of Crystal Lake carrying Freddy's head, which winks at the audience, indicating that he too may still be alive.
Jason was captured by the government in 2008. After many unsuccessful execution attempts, they decided in 2010 that since Jason could not be killed, he must be frozen until they could find a way to destroy him. However, one of the doctors wanted to research his ability to regenerate lost tissue for a profit, but was killed when Jason escaped. One of the government researchers, Rowan, managed to cryogenically freeze Jason, but was frozen in the process when Jason stabbed her through the wall of the chamber. Jason remained frozen until 2455, when some students on a field trip discovered him and Rowan and took them aboard their ship, the Grendel, and headed back to Earth 2 (the original Earth was dead, having experienced either an apocalypse or suffering nuclear fallout). He was thought to be dead, but he woke up and killed most of the ship's crew, including most of the students, Professor Lowe, and Sergeant Brodski's grunt team (though Brodski survived Jason's attempt to kill him). Eventually he fought an android, Kay Em, who blew off his right arm, left leg, a portion of his chest, and his head. However, a nanotechnology medical station brought him back to life and transformed him into an equally unkillable cyborg, Uber Jason, using scraps of metal and cloth around the room. It is unknown whether the machine was malfunctioning or if Jason's soul was manipulating it. Eventually, Jason blew up the ship, and the explosion sent him flying toward the shuttle where Rowan, Tsunaron (the last surviving student), and Kay Em (who, at this point, is only a head because Jason punched off her head during their initial confrontation upon Jason's "upgrade") were escaping. Before he could reach them, however, he was intercepted by Brodski, who somehow escaped the explosion, and knocked down toward Earth 2, where both Jason and Brodski were burned in its atmosphere by the reentry. What ever remained landed in a lake, the two teens go in to investigate.
- Main article: Jason Voorhees (remake)
Jason Voorhees is a large man most known and recognized by his hockey mask (which has become an icon in horror). Jason's signature and preferred weapon of choice is his machete. Jason is undead and has rotten skin that's almost black in color (most noticeably in Freddy vs Jason). Jason is also famous for being a masterful and authoritative weapon provisionary, able to use seemingly anything around him to quite brutally kill his targets. Unlike his predecessor Michael Myers, he does seem to have soft spots. He shows no interest in harming 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, though none of the appearances were ever consistent. In the first film, Jason, portrayed by Ari Lehman, appears briefly at the end, his deformities consisted of a large, oblong cranium, asymmetric eyes, and an oblong mouth which caused a severe overbite. As well as having Jason appear bald. However, in the eighth film, Jason's child form appears repeatedly as hallucinations and then once near the end of the film possibly physically by Timothy Mirkovich. All of the appearances had Jason appear as a normal child with minor blemishes such as bad hair and teeth. In Freddy vs. Jason, the child form of 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. Jason also appears to be in his forties. 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 in it, and wrapped with rope around his neck to keep it in place.
- In the third film, despite taking place immediately after the second, Jason is completely bald. His head is bulbous and oblong like the original, with a slight cleft lip, deformed gums, and visible forehead deformities, as well as the shifted eye. At the end of the film, Jason receives an axe wound to the head, which would remain on the character and his mask in all subsequent appearances. This marks the debut of Jason wearing the iconic hockey mask, modeled after a 1950's Detroit Red Wings goalie mask.
- 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 had received in the previous film. His mouth now appears to be broken outward, with his teeth jutting out and overlapping. His left cheek appears seared for some reason and his skin no longer looks healthy, appearing green in some places. His shifted eye is now bloodshot, giving Jason a more uncanny gaze. At the end of the film, his left eye is destroyed, and it would be absent from all subsequent appearances until Jason X. His mask in this film is the same as the one from part 3, only with more wear and damage, as well as the new addition of the axe head wound. The Mask is destroyed and a new mask would be donned by Jason in Part 6.
- Part 5 did not properly feature Jason, although he did appear in a dream. Though his face is never actually seen, his skin is dark and decomposing with worms crawling through the eye holes of his mask. Said mask is similar to the one from the previous two films, albeit rounder and missing the red chevrons on the muzzle.
- Movie 6's Jason initially doesn't have a mask, seizing Jarvis's mask shortly after rising from the grave. Jason's skin is pitch black and heavily decomposed. covered in holes and tight wrinkles. This is the first of two Jason appearances that lack the deformed right eye. Jason's mouth and left eyebrow have skin that has rotted off completely, exposing bone, as well as Jason's mangled teeth. His left eye is gone, and in its place is a bizarre mesh of rotted strands of skin. His mask is the same as the one from the dream sequence in the fifth movie, with a single red chevron on the forehead only, with the addition of the iconic axe wound on the head, despite it having no reason to be there.
- In the seventh film, Jason has reached a middle ground between decomposure 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, 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 Part 7, 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 another new mask in this film, with a sleeker chevron on the forehead, and for the first time since part 4, new chevrons on the cheeks. The mask has the axe wound, and, uniquely, has the eye holes blacked out so Jason's eyes couldn't 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, which is largely considered non-canon, Jason's normal appearance has his mask fused to his face. 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. Jason is never seen unmasked in the film, and thus multiple variations on the idea have surfaced. The most prominent being the recent variant for the Friday the 13th video game, and the other two more well-known variants being prop heads.
- 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. This film is sometimes considered the true part 9, as its events do not line up at all with the previous film despite being dubbed as the tenth episode of the story. The mask itself is smaller, darker, dirtier and more angular than the previous versions, appearing much more cold and 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.

- 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).
- 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).

- 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.

Hundreds had fallen victim to his bloodlust. Liu Kang, now ruler of the Netherrealm, took notice. An immortal killer like Jason would be useful in his plan for konquest. He drew Jason into the Netherrealm and offered him an endless bounty of slaughter... in return for his allegiance. Jason's simple reply was to destroy Liu Kang."

In Friday the 13th: The Game
Jason appears as the main antagonist in the survival horror 2017 video game Friday the 13th, based on the movie franchise itself. He also serves as playable character.
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.
- 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 all for revenge for the death of his mother and to carry her work on to keep the area closed. Jason Voorhees has taken the lives of (at least) 152 people. Michael Myers follows behind with (at least) 81 people.
