!!Trivia for the franchise in general:

* CashCowFranchise: Candy, dolls, masks, the aforementioned board game, video games, ''[[http://www.i-mockery.com/weeklies/weekly.php?type=music&id=57 a dance album]]'', a phone line where Freddy tells you scary stories...you name it. Enough so that New Line Cinema is sometimes called "The House That Freddy Built"; it was their first big success, and basically put the studio on the map.

** RealLife.MeanCharacterNiceActor
** VillainBasedFranchise (poster)
** SinisterScrapingSound (from ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010'')
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Creator/RobertEnglund's widely considered a nice and talkative guy (in fact, the chattering sometimes complicated the make-up artists' job).
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Jackie Earl Haley took over the role of Freddy Krueger from Robert Englund in the remake.
** Kristen was portrayed by Patricia Arquette in ''Dream Warriors'', and Tuesday Knight in ''The Dream Master''.
* ReferencedBy: Has its [[ReferencedBy/ANightmareOnElmStreet own page]].
* TypeCasting: Robert Englund played Freddy in all of the original films and ''Freddy vs. Jason''. Apart from all the makeup it requires, he does enjoy the role. The whole "typecasting" thing was lovingly mocked on ''Series/MADtv'' early in that show's run, when Englund did a guest spot for a HalloweenEpisode. During his appearance, everyone kept describing Englund, as his big claim to fame, his other famous genre role of "Willie", the comic relief alien from the original ''Series/{{V}}'' mini-series. Englund responds quite angrily, pointing out to each cast member who calls him "Willie", that he played Freddy Krueger in the ''Nightmare on Elm Street'' films. But everyone keeps referring to him as "The guy who played Willie on ''V''" instead of "the ''Nightmare On Elm Street'' guy", much to his dismay and anger.
* VaporWare:
** The reality television show ''Real Nightmares'', which had six episodes made but never aired.
** The ''Freddy Vs. Jason'' video game.
* TheWikiRule: The A Nightmare On Elm Street Wiki, seen [[http://nightmareonelmstreet.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page here]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The NES game was originally going to have the player be Freddy, as he takes on the kids himself. This was probably changed due to fear of possible controversy.
* Wes Craven chose to give Freddy his trademark [[WolverineClaws clawed glove]] after seeing his cat clawing his couch, and realized that fear of claws is a PrimalFear that has been with humans since prehistoric times, when we were still regularely preyed on by big cats.
