* ResurrectiveImmortality: Freddy Krueger is killed several times by the heroes, but he returns each time. The dream demons who are the source of his powers promised him that he would indefinately resurrect no matter what anyone does to him. He even boasts about it.

* HolyBurnsEvil: The jump rope song about Freddy Krueger implies Freddy can be effected by crucifixes ("Five, six, grab your crucifix"), but no one actively ''tries'' to use them to repel him, though they do seem to make him nervous. In one movie, holy water and a crucifix were used to kill him off at the end, however. Justified as his power comes from a trio of Dream Demons, and considering he feeds off of fear, having faith he can't hurt you if you have one would probably protect you from him.

* FantasticDrug: Hypnocil, the dream suppressant used in ''Dream Warriors'' and ''Freddy's Dead''. The latter film suggests that prolonged use can put people into a coma, but Nancy took it for years between films 1 and 3 without evident side effects.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Freddy, back when he was still a human serial killer. After his death his preferred form as the nightmare monster that he became was to appear in his burnt body, but he could assume virtually any shape he wanted.

** Also, believe it or not, Freddy Vs DJ Jazzy Jeff and the [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Fresh Prince]] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-56CNh5S7GU "Nightmare on My Street."]] Will Smith recorded the single as a gag, with Robert Englund providing dialogue. No, Freddy doesn't sing...but he does rap.

No, dialogue (No, Freddy doesn't sing...sing... but he does rap.rap). It was rejected from the soundtrack, but they released it anyway, resulting in a lawsuit from New Line Cinema that forced them to destroy the master tapes of the song's music video.

* 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 'Freddy vs. Jason' 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.
