* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:Elaine Parker, Kristen's mother. Not only was she responsible for the death of her own daughter, but thanks to that happening, it gave Freddy the opportunity he needed to successfully establish a link to the rest of Springwood's teen populace. So basically every death from this movie onward is because of her. [[SarcasmMode Nice job, Elaine.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

*LighterAndSofter: Compared to the previous three elm street movies, this film is a lot more light. This is also the point where Freddy really starts to become more comical and silly as opposed to the scary menacing killer he used to be.

* GhostReunionEnding: Subverted. After apparently defeating Freddy, the ghost of [[spoiler:Nancy's father]] appears to her. It's really Freddy in disguise, using it to give her a DeadlyHug.

* BigNo: Alice lets out a heart-wrenching one that ''somehow'' shatters the windows of her classroom after [[spoiler: her brother Rick is killed by Freddy]].

to:

* BigNo: Alice lets out a heart-wrenching one that ''somehow'' shatters the windows of her classroom after [[spoiler: her brother Rick is killed by Freddy]]. This makes sense if you consider that [[spoiler: Kristen was able to add Joey and Kincaid's powers/personality to Alice when her own power passed through Freddy's body, as Supersonic-Glass-Shattering-Scream was Joey's dream power, and Alice's sudden proficiency with nunchuks shows she's able to use dream powers in the real world]].



* DidntThinkThisThrough: Freddy can teleport people within the dream world, as he does to [[spoiler:Alice when she brings Debbie to him]]. With that in mind, quite ''why'' Freddy feels the need to [[spoiler:fight Alice at the end instead of just teleporting her away is a complete mystery. If he loses, it's all over for him, and if he wins, there'll be no one to bring him any more victims]].



* FinalGirl: Alice Johnson.

to:

* FinalGirl: Alice Johnson. Though this is more thanks to [[spoiler:Freddy's keeping her alive to bring him new victims than any power, since Alice never uses or displays any dream power until the very end]].
