to:

* ''Awesome/FreddyVsJason''


* Nancy constructing various {{MacGyver}}ian traps for Freddy in the first film and having him falling on every one of them.
** Especially when she sets him on fire, [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes much to his horror]].
* "I take back every bit of energy I gave you. You're nothing! You're shit." Best ending ever! [[spoiler: Or, at least it was until ExecutiveMeddling completely ruined it two minutes later.]]
* The opening of ''Freddy's Revenge'' is pretty awesome.
* Though it was for nothing, the fight between Neil, Donald Thompson and Freddy's Skeleton was pretty awesome. Though he died Donald delivered one of the most cool BadassBoast in movie history.
--> Donald: It's really you, I killed you once before you son of a BITCH!!
* Alice's LockAndLoadMontage in ''The Dream Master''.
* Alice in ''The Dream Child'', taking the fight straight to Krueger in the dreamworld, goading him on and calling him a coward in order to draw him out.
* In ''Freddy's Dead'', Freddy tries to get to Tracey by taking on the form of her dead father, who's implied to have molested her ([[spoiler: and to have been killed by her]]). Tracey proceeds to take a coffee pot and completely and utterly wales on him. [[spoiler: He gets back up and drops the charade, but Tracey still takes him on, then proceeds to wake herself up by burning her hands when she realizes she's outmatched.]]
** [[spoiler: What makes this awesome, even if Tracey didn't win, is that, unlike previous victims Taryn and Debbie, Tracey didn't let Krueger fully overwhelm her when he tried to psych her out, and made an effort to wake herself up when she realized Krueger was too tough for her to handle.]]
* Heather has a problem in ''New Nightmare''; [[UltimateEvil "Freddy"]] has trapped her son in an oven and is about to devour him. What does she do? '''[[spoiler:Stab the bastard. [[GroinAttack RIGHT IN THE BALLS.]]]]''' She also even delivers a PrecisionFStrike in the process, too!
** Let's not forget that earlier, Heather's hit by a car on the freeway trying to get to Dylan before Freddy does. Does that stop her? NO. That is the basic definition of a MamaBear.
** Heather's babysitter, Julie, from the same movie gets another one. [[spoiler: A couple of nurses are attempting to give Heather's son an injection that will help him fall asleep--something that they ''absolutely do not want to happen'' considering what franchise this is. Julie clocks one nurse in the face, knocking her clean out of the room, and chases the other one out with a syringe. Of course, Julie still dies not five minutes later. But hey, it was still pretty badass.]]
* FreddyVsJason, specifically on the Jason side of things. You'd think going right at his psyche would be enough to silence the bastard, but Freddy learns the hard way that much like himself, Jason just doesn't DIE!
* Though the movie isn't the best of the Nightmare series, the micronaps is easily one of the more cooler points for the remake.
