** Nancy removing Freddy's power through belief is a call back to the climax of the first film. It could be argued that Craven was doing a TakeThat to the ExecutiveMeddling and changed ending of the first film.

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: This movie involved Freddy escaping into the "real world", so that a new movie had to be made to imprison him again.

->'''Wes Craven:''' ''I think the only way to stop him is to make another movie. Now I swear to you I'm gonna stay by this computer and keep writing until I finish the script, but... when the time comes, you're gonna have to make a choice.''
->'''Heather Langenkamp:''' ''Choice? What kind of choice?''
->'''Wes Craven:''' ''Whether or not you will be willing to play Nancy one last time.''

* DarkerAndEdgier: The film was a very conscious shift away from the {{camp}} of the later ''Nightmare'' sequels, and was probably the least humorous film in the series outside the original.

* {{Deconstruction}}: The theme of the film is the fact that, as one character says, “Every kid knows who Freddy is. He’s like SantaClaus, or Film/KingKong," and that people have a hard time judging reality from fiction, such as Heather being asked if she would trust her son around Robert Englund, just because he's an ''actor'' who happens to play Freddy. Of course, the concept goes meta when it works in not only Heather's real-life experiences with a stalker, but also the 1994 Northridge earthquake, which happened ''during filming''. In the end, Craven considers Freddy just a fairy-tale (as seen with the tie-in to ''HanselAndGretel'', and Heather reading the script as if it were a storybook to her son).

* BecomingTheMask: The Entity that was sealed as Freddy Krueger has been stuck as him for so long that he thinks he ''is'' Freddy, and by extension Heather is [[FinalGirl Nancy.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OneSteveLimit: Averted; there are two Roberts, Robert Englund and Robert Shaye, although Shaye is addressed as "Bob". {{Justified}}, since they're both real people playing themselves.
