Jason (Part 6)
Jason (Part 6) is one of the variations of Jason Voorhees featured in the game, and the debut of Jason being a supernatural entity. This Jason is modeled after his appearance in Part VI: Jason Lives (1986).
History (Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives)[edit | edit source]
A year has passed since the events of Part V: A New Beginning, and Crystal Lake has been renamed to Forest Green. Tommy Jarvis, still suffering from hallucinations ever since his past encounter with Jason Voorhees, returns with his friend Allen Hawes, hoping to cremate Jason's body and therefore stop his hallucinations. At the cemetery, they dig up Jason's corpse, but seeing it causes Tommy to snap, and he stabs Jason's body with a metal fence post. As he turns his back on Jason, two lightning bolts strike the post and revive Jason, who kills Hawes.
Tommy makes his way to the sheriff's office, where he panics and attempts to grab weapons, but is caught and arrested. His warning that Jason has returned goes unheeded by Sheriff Mike Garris, who is aware of Tommy's mental problems and thinks he is imagining Jason. On the road, camp counselors Darren and Lizbeth get lost looking for the camp and run into Jason, who impales them both with the metal rod that resurrected him. The next morning, Garris' daughter Megan and her friends Sissy, Cort, and Lizbeth's sister Paula ask him to search for Darren and Lizbeth. Tommy warns them about Jason, but as he is now considered an urban legend, they ignore the warnings, though Megan becomes attracted to him. In the woods, Jason happens upon a corporate paintball game; he kills the players for their equipment. During these kills, Jason discovers that he is far stronger than before when he rips off a man's arm without actually meaning to.
At Camp Forest Green, the children arrive, and the teens do their best to run the camp without Darren and Lizbeth. Meanwhile, Garris decides to escort Tommy out of his jurisdiction due to his influence on Megan. Tommy tries to make a run for Jason's grave, but finds that the caretaker had covered it up to deny responsibility for it being dug up, and Hawes' body is buried in its place. Tommy is then escorted out of town. That night, Jason murders the caretaker and a nearby couple who witness the murder. Meanwhile, Cort goes out to have sex with a girl named Nikki, but both are killed by Jason. The sheriff's men find the victims' bodies and Garris immediately implicates Tommy in the murders, believing he has gone insane imagining Jason.
Tommy contacts Megan and convinces her to help him lure Jason back into Crystal Lake. Meanwhile, Jason makes his way to the camp and kills Sissy, then Paula. Meanwhile, Tommy and Megan are pulled over by Garris. Despite Megan's alibi that she was with Tommy, he does not believe him to be innocent and arrests him, then goes to the camp to investigate. As Tommy and Megan develop a ruse to trick the watching deputy and escape, Jason kills Garris and two other deputies when they arrive at the camp.
Jason is about to kill Megan when Tommy calls to him from the lake; apparently remembering his killer, he goes after him instead. Tommy is attacked in a boat in the middle of the lake and ties a boulder around Jason's neck to trap him. Jason fights back, holding Tommy underwater long enough to drown him. Megan rushes out to save him but is nearly killed when Jason grabs her leg; she turns the boat's activated motor around onto Jason's neck, and he releases her. She takes Tommy back to shore and uses CPR to revive him. Tommy says that it is finally over and Jason is home. Under the water, anchored to the bottom of the lake, Jason stares off into the water, awaiting an opportunity to return.
Characteristics, Appearance, and Weapons[edit | edit source]
This Jason variant wears a pale green, blood-stained button-up work shirt and a pair of weathered khaki-colored work pants under a brown 1940s US Marine utility belt holding a slew of throwing knives. He also wears a pair of beige work gloves. His hockey mask has the axe mark from Part 3 on the top left.
Unmasked, Jason's face is cadaverous and decomposed. His skin is brown and withering away from his visible skull and his nose is missing, with his nose cavity visible. His mouth is twisted into a grimace from which a set of crooked teeth protrude.
This Jason uses a cemetery fence post, called in-game a "spear", to impale the camp counselors.
Strengths and Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Strengths[edit | edit source]
- Throwing Knives - This Jason starts with 4 knives. Other Jasons have to find them during a match.
- Sense - This Jason's sense lasts longer once activated.
- Shift - Faster cooldown on this ability.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
- Defense - This Jason has lower HP and lower chance to successfully block attacks.
- Can't Run - Has a "fast walk" but can't run like Part 2 and Part 3.
- Morph - The cooldown for using this ability takes longer, so this Jason can't Morph as often during a match.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This was the debut for Jason Voorhees to return as a supernatural revenant-esque being.
- In the film, he was played by C. J. Graham. Although Dan Bradley had originally been filmed in the triple decapitation scene (in which was kept in the film), he was shortly replaced with Graham.
- The Throwing Knives used in-game are the same as the knives Jason used to kill one of the police officers that came to the camp with the sheriff. Interestingly enough, their appearance is more based on a dart rather than an actual throwing knife.
