* PeripheryDemographic: Despite Freddy getting most of the attention, and the slasher genre being typically marketed towards teenage and young adult men, the series has a notable feminist following due to its strong female protagonists who teenage girls easily relate to. This includes their lead actresses [[GirlsNeedRoleModels who encourage this demographic]].

* CreepyAwesome: Freddy of course. He is a serial killer, but one with the ability to manipulate dreams to advantage and a ton of dark humor to boot.



* EvilIsCool: Freddy.

to:

* EvilIsCool: Freddy.Freddy is among the post prominent horror villains thanks to his dream powers.


Added DiffLines:

* LoveToHate: Again, Freddy. He lacks any redeeming qualities but his skill set and dark humor make him extremely memorable.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: While you honestly can't blame the parents of Springwood for burning Freddy to death, this act of vigilantism ultimately allowed Freddy to become a powerful dream demon who would kill hundreds and by the end of the series, poses a global threat

** Amanda Krueger.

to:

** Amanda Krueger. She was just a nun who wanted to help the mentally ill, [[spoiler:but ended being captured and repeatedly raped by them, eventually giving birth to one of the worst known killers in existence. And even in undeath, she has to deal with her son's crimes]].

Added DiffLines:

* HellIsThatNoise: Freddy's claws against a steel object in the first film. It seldom ever returned in the sequels.

* VillainSue: From about the third film onwards, Freddy was pretty much undefeatable except when he chose to be. It got to a point where audiences met ''Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare'' with total cynicism (note how hard the title has to work to establish that he's really going to die in this movie).

* HarsherInHindsight: In perhaps the only time this particular method of death would apply here, Wes Craven passed away in his sleep.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: Freddy's make up isn't exactly a realistic despiction of what a burnt person would look like, but the look has become so iconic fans love it anyway. To the point that when the remake tried to go for a more realistic make-up, it was criticized as "generic".
