* SelfHarm: Jennifer burns herself with a cigarette to stay awake. [[spoiler: It isn't enough to save her.]] Kristen's parents also ''think'' this is what happened after one of her early nightmares...and [[MindScrew even she herself isn't sure at first]].

* AndIMustScream: When Freddy explains he's been absorbing his victims' souls, he pulls off his shirt to demonstrate their tortured faces on his torso. Luckily, they escape by ripping Freddy apart in the fourth film, however, he presumably stole more souls in the later movies.
** Also, Joey, when he's [[spoiler: suspended over a hellish, burning cavern, tied by four tongues to his bed frame]] and can't scream for help.

* PortalDoor: Nancy and the teenagers are ready to confront Freddy Krueger when a floating door appears in front of them. There's nothing behind it, but the door itself is a portal to Freddy's hell-like lair.

* IdiotBall: The reaction to the on-screen deaths rely on this. [[spoiler:Phillip "sleepwalked" his way out of a secured area]]? [[spoiler:Jennifer rammed her head into a TV mounted about six to height inches higher than her actual height without a chair]]? Neil is the only one without any Freddy experience that views these acts as more than suicide. This is so he can take Nancy's advice and try unauthorized action that ultimately gets them both relieved of duty, kicking off the rest of the story.

* KarmaHoudini: Dr. Simms, despite technically being the one responsible for the kid's horrific deaths (sedating them so Freddy can kill them), get absolutely no comeuppance whatsoever. Unusual for a character like this in a horror movie. Her behavior, denying the bizarness of the kids' situation even led some people into thinking she was in league with Freddy, but if she was nothing was ever said.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Elizabeth Simms and Donald Thompson. In the case of Simms although she doesn't believe them about Freddy, as a Doctor she genuinely cares about her patients and is worried about their mental health. In Donald's case, he was trying to protect his Daughter from Krueger and bury the past even though it's clear that it's crippling him. When Neil accused him of not caring about Nancy, he slapped his arms away from him (Neil slammed him against a wall earlier.) showing clearly he does care.
