Added DiffLines:

* ContestedSequel: Aside from the second film, probably the most divisive of the sequels. Some fans ''really'' love it due to its dark, gothic visuals, whereas others ''really'' hate the clash between said visuals and a Freddy who acts even goofier than in the previous two films (though to be fair, he acts even sillier in ''Freddy's Dead''; it's just less pronounced because the ''rest'' of the film is also much DenserAndWackier).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Greta Gibson is arguably one of the more popular characters to come out of this movie, most likely due to how... [[BodyHorror disturbing]] her [[spoiler: death sequence]] was. Photos and screenshots of her tend to be the most frequently posted ones online in connection to the movie, but beyond that she was given just enough screentime and characterization (such as her mourning [[spoiler: Dan]]) to make her likable. There's even fan fiction that puts her in the main character role.

* JustHereForGodzilla: It's a safe bet that what usually draws people to this installment despite the poor reviews were the extended versions of [[spoiler: Dan's and Greta's]] deaths because of how horrifying they were.

* HilariousInHindsight: Thanks to the concept of NightmareFuel, Freddy's "fuel injection" line is now more appropriate than ever.

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: The scene of Greta mourning Dan's death, however brief it is. Following Alice's first meeting with Jacob, it cuts to Greta in her bedroom, quietly crying over Dan's yearbook picture and the photo taken during graduation. This is actually unusual for a slasher movie, in that it isn't followed immediately by another death, nor is Greta the main character. Also, her grief is treated as genuine, and a fine example of how the ''Elm Street'' teenagers actually cared about each other.]]
** Her {{Backstory}} as revealed in ''Dream Warriors'' was sad enough, but finding out what happened to Amanda Krueger (and ''witnessing'' it) is heartbreaking. The fact that despite this her ghost/dream self was able to make a heroic last attempt to keep Freddy away from Alice and her baby by ''[[{{Squick}} taking him back into her womb]]'' is both this and a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* TearJerker: It's brief, but still counts. [[spoiler: The scene of Greta inside her bedroom following Dan's death. She's looking at Dan's photo in the yearbook alongside the photo taken from the graduation ceremony, and quietly crying. Instead of leading straight into another death or involving Alice in some way, Greta's mourning acts to endear her to the viewers by giving her depth.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectFailure: For all the great looking practical effects in it, the few moments of stop motion used look just out of place, especially when Alice sees the food in her fridge rot away before Greta appears to her.

* MisaimedFandom: At one point, Freddy forcefully fuses a character with his motorcycle. The process looks unbearably painful, with pipes and wires piercing through his flesh, skin peeling off and pieces of machinery inserting themselves into his body all over. It is...gruesome...and if you look the scene up on Youtube and check the comments, you will find people talking about how badass the resulting being looks, and how it should get its own movie or comic book series.
