We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Retro Jason is one of the variations of Jason Voorhees featured in the game. Though not from any of the films, this Jason is modeled after his appearance in the 1989 Friday the 13th video game for the NES, by LJN. The costume also replaces the music that plays when Jason is in close vicinity with chiptune-style music.
He was originally released as a skin for Part 3 Jason, sharing all his stats, however he has since been removed from the game in preparation for giving him his own slot.

In terms of his appearance, there isn't much of a difference as Retro Jason is just a re-colored skin of Part 3 Jason. The mask, his hands, and boots are colored aqua, while his head and neck, shirt, pants, and the mask's straps are colored purple.
In the 1989 game, Jason only uses an axe and a machete, both with the handles in dark orange and the blades in bright white. In the game, Jason's preferred weapon of choice is the axe, basically the felling axe that Part 3 Jason uses in-game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Although not the first Jason variant to have not been modeled after any appearances from the films (outside of Savini Jason), it is the first and currently only Jason to have been modeled after his appearance in a video game, being the 1989 NES game.
- Although the previews of Retro Jason was seen with the axe recolored much like in the 1989 game, this isn't present for some reason in-game as the axe that Retro Jason uses is the same axe model that Part 3 Jason uses.
