* BastardBastard: Freddy isn't called "the bastard son of a 100 maniacs" for nothing. He was conceived when dozens of insane inmates in a mental asylum raped his mother Amanda, a nun who was working there. Freddy was a child murderer in real life, and became a specteral nightmare killer after his death.

* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Comicbook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh: Nightmare Warriors''. And how so? In the orginal timeline Freddy was let go after someone forget to sign the warrant, and after a TimeyWimeyBall, an FBI agent signs the warrant, leading to Krueger's arrest and the fact he never became the Nightmare God that he once was.]]

* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: At {{Flanderization}}: He was considerably more serious in the end of ''Comicbook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh: Nightmare Warriors''. And how so? In first film, but the orginal timeline Freddy was let go after someone forget to sign the warrant, and after sequels, which largely didn't involve Wes Craven, turned him into a TimeyWimeyBall, an FBI agent signs the warrant, leading to Krueger's arrest and the fact he never became the Nightmare God that he once was.]]comedic goofball.

GoneHorriblyRight: In the orginal timeline Freddy was let go after someone forget to sign the warrant, ''Freddy vs. Jason'', he brought [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]] BackFromTheDead and after a TimeyWimeyBall, an FBI agent signs the warrant, leading to Krueger's arrest and the fact he never became the Nightmare God set him upon Springwood, knowing that he once was.]]himself would be blamed for Jason's killings, which would give him enough power to escape Hell and go about haunting Springwood again. The plan works, but Freddy never anticipated that Jason would continue to intrude on his territory and steal his potential victims. -->'''Freddy''': Everyone forgot! That's why they weren't afraid anymore! That's why I needed Jason to kill for me, to get them to remember! But now he just won't ''stop''!

-->'''Tina''': Oh God!

-->'''Tina''': Oh Please, God!

Added DiffLines:
-->'''Tina''': Oh God!* OffOnATechnicality: How he walked away from the child murders he committed after he died; depending on whether you go by the films or ''Series/FreddysNightmares'', it was either because the judge failed to properly sign the search warrant or because the arresting officer neglected to read him his Miranda rights.

Added DiffLines:
-->'''Tina''': Oh God!* {{Unperson}}: After it became known that Freddy grows more powerful based on how much he is feared and by how many people know of him, the town of Springwood tried to erase all knowledge of his existence and his murder spree to spare their children. Those who had any knowledge of Freddy were institutionalized and put on Hypnocil. It worked so well that Freddy brought Jason back to stir things up.

-> "Why are you screaming? I haven't even cut you yet." [-Played by: Creator/JackieEarleHaley, [[MortalKombat9 Patrick Seitz]]-] This version of Freddy was a gardener at Badham Pre-School, who was loved by all the kids there. He was also a child molester who used his position to have his way with the children. After the parents found out, they chased him into an industrial park where they trapped him inside a building and burned him alive. Years later he returns to kill all those who attended the pre-school except Nancy, as he has [[AndIMustScream different plans for her]].

* PaedoHunt: The remake explicitly makes him out to be one, even after a lot of misdirection saying otherwise.

Added DiffLines:
* BrutalHonesty: She has no qualms about talking back to her parents or her boyfriend about someone trying to ''kill her'', even throwing in a few curse words for good measure. However, she's more amicable when she's not constantly hounded by Freddy.

Added DiffLines:
* HystericalWoman: She's treated as such in the first movie by all the adults, and she herself almost believes it when Freddy doesn't immediately show up to play in what she thought was the real world. Of course, since it's horror movie, she's ProperlyParanoid.

* DarkerAndEdgier: While he is still inclined to occasional one-liners, his attitude is a lot angrier and more bitter compared to his mainstream counterpart.

* DarkerAndEdgier: While he is still inclined to occasional one-liners, his attitude is a lot angrier and more bitter compared to his mainstream counterpart. And what he plans to do to Nancy is ''way'' more disturbing.

* VillainBall: Rather than kill his victims outright, he prefers to draw out their torment for his own amusement, overconfident in their inability to effectively fight back. This has given many of his victims a chance to escape or find the means to defeat him, and [[FreddyVsJason Jason]] [[KillSteal stole one of his kills]] because of this. A notable aversion: because he recognized Nancy as a threat since his defeat in the original movie, in ''Dream Warriors'', he simply stabs her in lieu of his usual elaborate kill sequences.

* DistressedDude: He has to be saved by Lisa.

Once she killed him in hell."'' ''Dream Master'' he had to find another way to invade dreams as she was too powerful for him to overcome. He spends the majority of ''Dream Child'' taunting Alice, but can't actually do anything to her because he could end up harming Jacob in the process.]]

->''"Rest * ThePowerOfFriendship: The power she gains from her friends gives her the strength to face Krueger on her own, [[spoiler: but it's also that their power gave her the strength to find her ''own'' strength, which is what ultimately stops him and frees his enslaved souls in hell."''

By the end of the film, she became a {{Badass}} who took Krueger on by herself. -->'''Alice''' (''as Freddy is harassing Dan''): Get away from him you ''son of a bitch!''
