Roy Burns is the secondary antagonist of the Friday the 13th franchise, serving as one of the two main antagonists (alongside Victor J. Faden) of Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning and a posthumous antagonist in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.

Roy Burns is a paramedic who responds to a murder at the Pinehurst Youth Development Center. After the victim is revealed to be Joey Burns, Roy has a strange look come over his face. Meanwhile, masked killer resembling Jason Voorhees is killing the residents of Pinehurst. After a climactic showdown between the killer and Reggie Winter, Pam Roberts, and Tommy Jarvis, the killer falls from a barn loft onto farming equipment and is killed. His mark it torn off and it is revealed to be Roy Burns.

The police later identify Roy as Joey’s loner father, and determine that he went insane after his son’s death and sought revenge, inspired by the stories of Jason’s killing sprees.

He is played by Dick Wieand (unmasked) and Tom Morga (masked).
