* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Kool Moe Dee's "Let's Go" which covers the entire credit sequence.
* HilariousInHindsight: Thanks to the concept of NightmareFuel, Freddy's "fuel injection" line is now more appropriate than ever.
** Decades before his appearance in MortalKombat: Amanda wins. Babality!
* HolyShitQuotient: Alice dreams of her womb and her baby. [[spoiler: She's happy at first, until she realizes Freddy is there too, and has been feeding the souls of his victims to make the baby evil like him.]]
* MisaimedFandom: At one point, Freddy forcefully fuses a character with his motorcycle. The process looks ''very'' 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.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Alice's right as a mother is explored upon in this film. The film doesn't try to pass moral judgement on abortion, nor is the process considered right or wrong. When Mark asks if Alice has thought about not having Jacob, Alice says no because she considers him a part of herself and Dan, not because she thinks the idea itself is wrong. The whole film is about Alice trying to keep her child from other people, such as Freddy, who is trying to warp Jacob into a tool he can use, and Dan's parents, who think they have a right to Jacob because he's their grandson and even refer to him as "It." In fact, Dan, despite [[spoiler: dying early in the film]], is given more consideration than Alice is, as Alice's own doctor actually called Dan's parents and told them she was hysterical. The film treats this course of action as wrong.
* 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.
* {{Squick}}: The film is so squicky that it's the only ''Elm Street'' movie to have an unrated version.
* 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.
