* The entire series shows the nightmares the teenagers are having in reaction to their guilt over their parents killing a man. Freddy did exist in the real world as a human and the Springwood Slasher, but never came back as a dream demon after his death and was truly dead the whole time. His appearance in the teens' dreams is just another manifestation of their stress and guilt, which they believe will kill them due to how vivid the dreams are. Ultimately, each teen [[DrivenToSuicide commits suicide]] both to end the guilt and their resulting nightmares. This is made even worse by the fact that the adults don't notice or seem to care about their childrens' distress, and refuse to give most of them professional mental help.

[[WMG: Freddy’s burns changing were actually a sign of his power level]]
* In the original film, he’s not that powerful and hasn’t really gotten any souls yet, so his burns here are more realistic. In the second film there still bad but slightly less, because he had more power. 3-4 have roughly the same state because Freddy’s at roughly the same level of strength in these two. 5 has worse burns and Freddy looks older, because he’s very weak. In 6 when he’s at his most powerful, Freddy’s burns are less pronounced and is looking very close to his human form, because he’s at his most powerful here.

[[WMG: Freddy becoming more [[LargeHam hammy]] was actually a deliberate tactic]]
* In the first movie, Freddy’s serious and menacing, as he hunts down the kids of the parents who burned him. However, by the time of [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors Dream Warriors]], he’s growing a little bored and tired, recognizing that [[AndThenWhat he’s very close to finally finishing his goals and will soon die because he’s fulfilled his contract with the Dream Demons]]. So in an effort to liven things up a bit, he makes his kills more creative to amuse himself, along with screwing with the kids he kills. By the 4th movie, when Kristen passes her powers to Alice, Freddy gets caught with them, allowing him to kill all of her friends. He’s estatic over this and has fun with his kills because he’s found a loophole and can kill as he pleases, resulting in the more wacky deaths. After Alice defeats him, but he comes back through Jacob, Freddy gets more serious because he knows he has to be cautious, resulting in more serious deaths while also keeping a few wacky ones. This comes to its head in [[Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare Freddy’s Dead]], where he’s killed all the kids in Springwood and can go after the whole world, so he has fun with the crazy deaths he makes up until he dies.

* For one thing, Creator/WesCraven could have been lying to Heather in order cover his own ass for allowing such a thing to happen (after all he created the character).
