Savini Jason is one of the variations of Jason Voorhees, and one of the two variants that weren't based upon any of the films; the other being the Retro Jason skin.

He was originally one of the rewards for donating to the Kickstarter, but due to popular demand, he was available on the Backerkit store as well for $6.99 . He is an exclusive DLC that was only sold on the Kickstarter and Backerkit store.

Characteristics, Appearance, and Weapons[edit | edit source]

Unlike the other Jasons - which were modeled after the films they were in - this Jason is not from any of the Friday the 13th movies and was instead created as a different variation of Jason by Tom Savini (hence the name), who did the gory special/make-up effects for the first and fourth installments. Savini Jason was created to reflect what Jason may look like if he had survived the events of Part 9 and returned to Crystal Lake after escaping hell.

Savini Jason's appearance is visualized with the hockey mask blackened with the top red chevron existing, the right side completely damaged much like in Part 7, and has visable claw marks. However, the mask oddly no longer has the axe cut on the mask. He is shown to have been cuffed with a chain that trails around his neck similar to Part 7, and wears the Big-Mac-esque worker shirt with pockets; aside from it being now completely black, the left side is completely torn to show the shoulder, now molten-like with small spikes. Parts of the shirt on the back are also scratched to show the molten appearance, and he leaves a small ash-particle trail behind whenever he walks. Lastly, his pants are now black with some tears at the thigh and the knee pad, and he wears black boots.

Savini Jason's appearance does not seem to include many canon features from previous films. Starting with his head, his skin compared to Part 9 now remains less bloated and rather smoothed. Underneath his mask, his eyes are glowing orange and he has scratches on his face which the insides show to be also glowing orange. The left side skin appears to be a bit stretched, and his mouth - while opened a bit - is shown to be sewed with his skin as the inner mouth glows orange like the scratches and the eyes. With his body appearing to be very muscular, his skin appears in a color like dark ash, and shows the molten appearance a bit.

Currently the only weapon he appears to be using is the Devil's Pitchfork (in-game simply called a Pitch Fork).
