*** The iconic sexy nurse dream sequence could have been so very very different: an alternate version was filmed with Stacey Alden (who played the nurse) transforming into Freddy with Stacey made up to look like Robert Englund from the neck up (there are images on google; seek them at your own risk). It was decided this was too much even for an Elm Street film so the sequence was refilmed with Alden in normal make-up, rescuing a defining cinematic moment for adolescents everywhere.

*** Music/DJJazzyJeffAndTheFreshPrince's song "A Nightmare On My Street" was recorded for the film, but was rejected by the producers. Creator/WillSmith and Jazzy Jeff released it anyway on their album ''He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper'' and as a single, reaching #12 on the Billboard ''Hot 100''. [[ScrewedByTheLawyers A messy legal battle with New Line Cinema over the song's release]] (the single being released the same time the movie was) forced the duo to destroy the tapes of a music video for the single and disclaimers disassociating the song from the ''Elm Street'' franchise were hastily added onto vinyl pressings of the single.

* ThrowItIn: Creator/RobertEnglund improvised quite a few of Freddy Krueger's one-liners, but the best-known example happened in ''Dream Warriors'', in a scene where Freddy emerged from a television set and killed a girl by smashing her head into it. The scripted line was "This is it, your big break in TV!" which Englund said on the first take. When the director went for an alternate angled shot however, Englund changed the line to "Welcome to Prime Time, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]!" The different camera angle made it easy to edit the two lines together, and it became probably Freddy's defining one-liner. According to [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]], the line was originally "You're on TV now, girl!"

*** FX creator Mark Shostrom created a desiccated "little girl corpse" which Kristen would discover she was holding, but it was decided that the item was ''too'' grotesque. A miniature skeleton was used instead.

* BillingDisplacement: Not in the film itself, but most of the DVD covers and some of the latter VHS covers give Patricia Arquette top billing and the most space on the cover, despite Heather Langenkamp really being the lead actress.
