* ForTheEvulz: Freddy doesn't have any motive for killing people beyond the fact that he finds it entertaining. However, the sixth film suggests that his [[AbusiveParents abusive foster father]], along with several mean orphans, and the fact that his own mother abandoned him at birth, had a hand in making him such a sadist, although his ChildByRape (of a nun, by 100 different psychopaths) origin implies that at least some of it was InTheBlood even beforehand. The remake tries to change this and make his character ''slightly'' less of a monster than his original incarnation.

* AdultsAreUseless: You'd think that by the fourth film, the adults and parents of Springwood would realize that something was amiss about all these deaths but instead remain oblivious at best, or downright hostile jerks at worst. Ronee Blakely, the actress who played Nancy's mother, has said they [[ObliviouslyEvil "verge on being villains"]]. It's not until '''''Film/FreddyVsJason''''' that they finally accept that Freddy is not just an urban legend. And even still, it took Freddy killing every child and teenager in town before they finally stopped carrying the IdiotBall.

* {{Jerkass}}: The majority of the parents throughout the movies are apathetic or just downright abusive towards their children, which is ironic because the reason Freddy was killed in the first place was because the parents were trying to protect their kids from him. Their [[AbusiveParents abusive tendencies]] vary, from Marge Thompson and Dennis Jordan's [[TheAlcoholic alcoholism]], Elaine Paker's [[ParentalNeglect neglect]], Racine Gibson being a domineering StageMom, to the most extreme example being Tracy's sexually abusive father whom she is implied to have killed in self-defense.

Even Freddy himself dealt with jerkasses before his conversion into a serial killer. Examples include other orphans, and the alcoholic Mr. Underwood.

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Coach Schneider]] in ''Freddy's Revenge'', who's implied to be a rapist. And this trope is rare in the ''Nightmare'' movies, except ''Film/FreddyVsJason'', which is part ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'', which is the exact opposite and follows this trope all the time.

* DreamIntro: A regular occurrence. EVERY one of the films starts with the main character having a nightmare about Freddy before waking up in a CatapultNightmare right when he's about to kill them (because otherwise, it would obviously be a pretty short movie). The only mild exception is in [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors the third one]], and that's just because the protagonist is awake for a few minutes before falling asleep. And in ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' it's because the movie opens with Freddy himself.
