* 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.
-->'''Nun''': Sister, this is one of God's creatures. Take solace in that.\\
'''Amanda''': That is ''no'' creature of God!

'''Freddy''': But I found the key.

* CassandraTruth: Yvonne is the only one of Alice's friends who doesn't believe her about Freddy... until Freddy herself comes after her and Alice bails her out.


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.

Even before she knew the truth about him she demonstrated concern for him Jacob's well being, 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.
** 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.
--->'''Greta''': The bottom line Alice, is that if anyone is out to get you, supernatural or otherwise, they're gonna have to go through us first.


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.]]

** This is probably one of the least comedic movies in the series, and has some absolutely ''[[CruelAndUnusualDeath mean]]'' deaths. Weirdly enough the movie while it definitely seems to be trying to go back to the more serious roots of the first one, still has scenes of Freddy constantly spouting one liners and even has a comic book death scene for one of it's characters.

** There's also the added angle of humiliation Freddy includes in the death sequences. [[spoiler: He makes Dan listen to his mother call him an ungrateful bastard, Greta is killed while dream versions of her mother and the party guests laugh at her, and Mark is forced to watch Freddy torture Greta before seemingly killing her ''again''.]]


Added DiffLines:

* IWantMyMommy: A non-comedic example similar to the first movie. [[spoiler: In Greta's dream, she desperately screams for her mother as Freddy chokes her to death while the dream version of Racine just laughs at her. The real Racine isn't much help either, as she only stares at Greta in concerned confusion as Greta is clearly choking to death.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WeightWoe: Greta's mother is constantly "slapping her wrist" about her weight and what she eats, although this trope was toned down from the script, where Greta was more afraid of what junk food and eating too much would do to her skin and body while in the finished film she's just worried about Racine giving her crap.
