|“||There's a legend around here. A killer buried, but not dead. A curse on Crystal Lake, a death curse. Jason Voorhees' curse. They say he died as a boy, but he keeps coming back. Few have seen him and lived. Some have even tried to stop him... No one can. People forget he's down there, waiting...||„|
|~ Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood|
Born in 1946, in the small town of Crystal Lake to Elias and Pamela Voorhees, Jason Voorhees had severe facial deformities, Hydrocephalus, and mental disabilities at birth. Pamela raised him on her own and homeschooled him, isolating him from the rest of the community. When he was 11, incapable of getting him a babysitter, Pamela took him to Camp Crystal Lake, where she worked. Here, he was bullied and tormented by his fellow campers and seemingly drowned when they threw him into Crystal Lake. Mad with grief, Pamela killed the counselors who failed to protect her son and prevented any from returning. However, Jason had actually survived, and after the death of his mother, Jason created a shrine in her memory, avenged her death, and took her place in preventing any from returning to Crystal Lake.

Stamina: Extremely high. Jason can survive and continue hunting and killing his prey even after taking injuries that would be lethal for others. Even as an ostensibly normal human, he was able to get up quickly after his collarbone was sliced through and recovered from having an axe blade slammed into his skull, going straight back to killing no worse for wear. In undeath, his stamina becomes even greater, allowing him to walk through worse injuries without issue. In Freddy vs Jason, he continued to fight after having three of his fingers sliced off, both of his eyes gouged out, and being impaled in numerous places and slashed multiple times, getting up to land a final attack on Freddy after having his own machete shoved deep into his body and being set on fire. As a cyborg, his stamina becomes higher still, possibly limitless due to being both mechanical and undead. While his stamina isn't as impressive in the reboot, he still proves capable of killing multiple people in succession in a short amount of time, and can still recover from injuries such as being stabbed with his own machete and having his head crushed in a meat grinder.
Range: Extended melee range, further with other weapons and by throwing his machete
Standard Equipment: Usually his signature machete, among any other number of weapons, such as axes, spears, pitchforks, and in the reboot, a bow.
Intelligence: Average. Jason is capable of effectively tracking and killing his victims, using any number of weapons and tools as deadly weapons, and setting up basic traps. His intelligence was further enhanced after he was empowered and resurrected by Freddy in Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash. However, due to being legally mentally handicapped and never going to school, he highly lacks academic knowledge. | Above Average. In the Reboot timeline, Jason constructed a complex warning system around his home, as well as a series of tunnels to travel around more quickly. He has been shown to use traps far more frequently than his other incarnations and uses his victims as live bait for even more prey. In addition, as opposed to the slow, methodical way that the original Jason stalked and killed his victims, this Jason is much more proactive, running down those who flee and painfully killing them.
Weaknesses: Being reminded of his mother can stop Jason in his tracks, and he can also be incapacitated by trapping him in the waters of Crystal Lake. When possessing others, only those with Voorhees blood will last and allow him to return to his true form.
