Jason (Part 7)
Jason (Part 7) is one of the variations of Jason Voorhees featured in the game. This Jason is modeled after his appearance in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988), and the debut role for Kane Hodder to play Jason the most times. He can be unlocked at Level 7.
History (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood)[edit | edit source]
The undead and decomposing Jason Voorhees remains chained to the bottom of Crystal Lake. While he remains chained, a young child named Tina Shepard, who witnesses her alcoholic father physically abusing her mother, unlocks previously latent telekinetic powers in which result in her father's death at the bottom of Crystal Lake. Ten years later, a now teenager Tina is still struggling with the guilt surrounding the death of her father. Tina's mother, Amanda, takes her to the same lakeside residence so that her powers can be studied (and unknowingly exploited) by her psychiatrist, Dr. Crews. Dr. Crews begins a series of experiments (verbal assaults) designed to agitate Tina's mental state, forcing her powers to become more pronounced.
After a particularly upsetting session with Dr. Crews, Tina runs from the cabin and to the dock thinking about her father's death. While thinking about him, she wishes he would come back. Instead, Tina's psychic powers breaks the chain around the neck of Jason Voorhees. Tina's torment from her powers is increased as Jason emerges from the lake and his reign of terror descends on the area once again.
Next door to the Shepard residence is a group of teens who are throwing a birthday party for their friend Michael; preppy Russell and his girlfriend Sandra, Ben and his girlfriend Kate, science fiction writer Eddie, stoner David, perky Robin, shy Maddy, and snobby socialite Melissa. Michael's cousin Nick, who has arrived just for the party takes a liking to Tina, much to the jealousy of Melissa, who bullies Tina. Tina tells Nick about Jason and has a vision of Jason murdering Michael. Meanwhile, Jason kills Michael in real life, along with Jane, and later kills another couple camping in the woods.
While Tina goes off to find her mother and Nick goes with her, Jason proceeds to kill the other teens; Russell is killed with an axe to the face, Sandra is pulled underwater while she is skinny-dipping; murders Maddie in the barn with a sickle, crushes Ben's skull with his bare hands, and shoves a party horn into Kate's eye. Inside, David is stabbed with a kitchen knife, throws Robin out of the window, and decapitates Eddie with a machete. When Jason attacks Dr. Crews, he saves himself by selfishly using Mrs. Shepard as a shield while Jason kills her instead with a sling blade. Crews and Tina meet up again and Crews tries to lie and tell Tina her mother is fine before Jason finds and kills him with a trimming saw. Tina finds her mother's body shortly afterwards and uses her powers to electrocute Jason and to crash the house down on him. She tells Nick and Melissa what happened, but Melissa thinks she is crazy and goes to leave the house, only for Jason to return and kill her with an axe slammed into her face.
Nick tries to fight off Jason but is subdued. Tina unleashes her powers in various ways such as forcing Jason's mask to tighten until it breaks in two, revealing his decaying and deformed face. As the battle rages on, the Shepard lakeside cabin is destroyed by an explosive fire and trio are thrown back into the dock. Although she is unable to kill Jason, she unknowingly summons the spirit of her father, who emerges from the lake and drags Jason back down into the depths with him, chaining the killer once more.
The next morning, while someone finds Jason's broken mask in the wreckage, Tina and Nick are taken away in the ambulance and the screen fades to black while Jason's whispers can be heard from far away.
Characteristics, Appearance, and Weapons[edit | edit source]
Jason wears an extremely tattered and ruined dark olive colored military shirt with two buttoned flap pockets, with matching dark olive colored military pants and a pair of very worn-out black colored security boots. He also has a broken part of the chain that Tommy Jarvis used to pin to a boulder at the bottom of the lake in Part 6 wrapped around his neck. His shirt and pants, now ripped and extensively torn, exposed a lot of his body underneath. His hockey mask is very worn and discolored, with the axe mark from Part 3 still present and a large chuck of the mask broken off on the bottom left side, partially exposing that side of his mouth; this was caused by Megan in the climax of Part 6, when she uses a boat's motor propeller to free herself from Jason's grip on her ankle in the water.
Unmasked, his flesh and skin are now extensively and incredibly putrid and rotten, to the point where his spinal cord and many of his bones -- including his ribs, sternum, etc. -- are now exposed and visible. Jason's face resembles his face in Part 6, but now even more rotted with a dark brown color to it. His nose cavity is also exposed like in Part 6 as well, as well as still presenting the axe mark scar from Part 3 and the machete scar from Part 4.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the film, he was played by Kane Hodder, who would then go on to play Jason the most times out of all the actors that played him. By fans, they had always favored Hodder as the "definitive Jason".
- In-game, many people consider this Jason to be the least effective Jason, due to the lack of mobility on-land and lack of traps.
- Currently, this is the only Jason using a machete for a weapon - Jason's iconic weapon of choice.
