* AdultsAreUseless: Greta's mother Racine, who is downright unsympathetic to the fact that her daughter has lost close friends. [[spoiler:And during Greta's death scene it appears as though she's violently choking, yet her mother and the people at the dinner party all simply stare at her. It isn't until she falls face first into her salad, dead, that her mother and the party-goers check if she's alright.]]

* {{Archenemy}}: The film presents Alice as Freddy's, mainly because she was too powerful for him to control, and his empty threats and taunts seem to be his pathetic way of expressing his hatred of her.

** Greta would've come across as SpoiledSweet, but other than the idea that her mother is rich and she wants to be a model, she never gives off a vibe that she really cares about money or fame. She [[spoiler: quietly mourns Dan's death the night it occurs]] and is disgusted at her mother's callousness. Even though she doesn't believe Freddy is real, rather than tell Alice she's crazy, she assures Alice she's in her corner.

* BodyHorror: Lots. [[spoiler: Dan is fused with a motorcycle, Greta is force fed until her cheeks swell up to a grotesque size from her vomit and we then find out Krueger is carving out her organs and feeding them to her, and then much later Krueger begins to emerge out of Alice's body in a horrifying fusion of the two.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeadlyBath: Played with as well. Alice is taking a shower when it turns out she's dreaming and the shower cabin starts filling up with water. She jumps out through a portal that just appears, but it's to lead her to something more dangerous.

* GargleBlaster: In [[spoiler:Dan's]] nightmare, Freddy drinks a bottle of wine, and promptly spits it out onto the dashboard, which dissolves it on contact. Freddy proceeds to use it to melt off his right arm to [[ItMakesSenseInContact use as a seatbelt]].

* ChildByRape: This film reveals the circumstances of Freddy's conception; his mother was trapped in an insane asylum and raped repeatedly by the 100 maniacs within.



* DirtyCoward: Freddy is clearly terrified of his mother, and even refuses to pursue Alice and Yvonne at one point because of it. During the climax, Alice even outright calls him a coward for not facing her or Amanda.



* FetusTerrible: Freddy's aim is to turn Jacob into this, by feeding him the souls of his victims to make Jacob like himself.

**
Freddy's aim is to turn Jacob into this, by feeding him the fetus souls of his victims to strengthen it, presumably intending to either make Jacob like himself.the baby into his agent, or possess it.
** In a nightmarish flashback to Freddy's own birth, he's depicted as one of these himself.

Added DiffLines:

* NobodyCallsMeChicken: During the climax of the film, Alice goes off on a rant against Freddy, outright calling him a coward for not facing her or Amanda. It cuts to Freddy looking absolutely ''pissed'', and he starts stalking after Alice, growling in fury.

* ItCameFromTheFridge: After [[spoiler:Greta]] has been force-fed to death in her dream, we cut to Alice going to fetch her father a drink in the fridge. When she opens it, the food rots in front of her eyes (and an eyeball even shows up on them) before her dead friend suddenly bursts out of the fridge, only to be dragged back inside by Freddy Krueger. The fridge closes, is opened again, and everything is back to normal. For added insult, when the fridge closes, there's a test on the fridge door with the words "Fuck You" written on it. It's held by a Freddy magnet.

* MamaBear: Alice Johnson. She refused to let Freddy use her unborn child as a means to continuing murdering innocents, and she refused to abort Jacob just to stop Freddy. Granted she worded it that he was the last link to Dan she had, but even before she knew the truth about him she demonstrated concern for him and told him that she cared about him.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Mark, and Greta as NiceGirl:
** Mark is the most supportive of Alice's friends, and while he doesn't believe in Freddy's existence off the bat, after [[spoiler: Greta's death]] he tells Yvonne that if there is the chance Alice is right and something supernatural is going on, he wants to know. Even when he snaps at Yvonne he immediately apologizes for it. When Mark asks if Alice has considered terminating the pregnancy to stop Freddy, and Alice says no, Mark supports her decision and assures her they'll figure out something else.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Subverted. Yvonne ''thinks'' she's this when Alice and Mark both start focusing on ways to beat Freddy, and assumes that stress is making them act crazy. [[spoiler: The moment she realizes Freddy ''is'' real, her help proves so crucial if it hadn't been for her finding Amanda Krueger, Alice and Jacob would've lost.]]
