* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming:
** Alice's father showing up at the graduation ceremony, saying he hid by the bleachers because he didn't want to embarrass Alice. Alice assures him he couldn't embarrass her. And much later on, he stands by Alice when Dan's parents come by and try to threaten Alice to get custody of Jacob, showing outrage at the nerve the two have. When Alice first found out she was pregnant, Dennis immediately starts doing what he can to help her be prepared.
-->'''Alice''': Are you disappointed in me?
-->'''Dennis''': No. I'm not.
** Greta [[spoiler: mourning Dan]] and telling Alice that, she may not believe Freddy Krueger is real, but if there ''is'' anything out to get Alice it'll have to go through Greta, Yvonne, and Mark to do so. It goes to show how the Elm Streets genuinely care about each other more than you would think to find in a slasher movie.
** Alice's meetings with Jacob before discovering he's her son, showing concern for him and letting him know she does care about him. When Jacob says his mother doesn't care about him, Alice tells him she's sure his mom does because ''she'' cares about him. The moment Alice realizes who Jacob really is just gives her more incentive to stop Freddy.
** Mark being totally supportive of Alice while doing research on Freddy and his mother. When he offers the idea of Alice terminating the pregnancy, Alice says no because she feels Jacob inside her and considers him a part of her and of Dan. Mark lets her know right away he agrees with her and says they'll definitely find another way.
** [[spoiler: The ending scene of the picnic Alice is having with her father, Yvonne, and recently born Jacob Johnson.]]

* 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.]]

* 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.
