One, two, Freddy's coming for you.
In life, Freddy Krueger was a sadistic monster of a man who tortured and killed children. Getting out of court on a technicality, he was killed by the parents of his former victims and burnt alive. However, he survived as a spirit, and made a deal with the Dream Demons. In exchange for power, he would kill the living in their dreams and the Dream Demons would channel their souls - and his first victims would be those who survived his rampages in the past.

Attack Potency: Wall level (Fought against and wounded Jason) | Town level (Possesses complete control over the town of Springwood in the Dream World, but no further, and easily created a very small planet consisting of a junkyard), potentially higher (His power and influence grow the more people fear him, and during the events of Freddy vs. Jason, he was empowered by the populations of both Springwood and Crystal Lake, granting him power over both in the Dream World), can ignore conventional durability in several ways | At least Small Building level, likely higher (After eventually bonding with the Necronomicon, he gained access to all of its spells, and was capable of easily blowing up houses and destroying helicopters)

Striking Strength: Wall Class | Wall Class, potentially higher (He can increase his own power as he pleases) | At least Small Building Class, likely higher
Durability: Wall level (Got back up after being thrown through a roof by Jason) | Wall level (He is generally no more durable in the Dream World, simply harder to kill because of his abilities), potentially higher (He can increase his durability as he pleases). His immortality makes it very hard to kill him. | At least Small Building level, likely higher (Survived being shot by a tank shell)
Stamina: Very high (Could endure a prolonged fight with Jason Voorhees and kept fighting after losing an arm). | Unknown, potentially limitless.
Range: Standard melee range, Tens of Meters with his abilities. | Kilometers (He has control over all of Springwood in the Dream World), potentially higher | Hundreds of meters
Intelligence: Above average. Freddy is a cunning, devious killer who creatively utilizes his powers to torture and toy with his prey, and is a skilled planner and manipulator, forming long term strategies and plans meant to help him escape death by any means.
Weaknesses: Freddy is overconfident and tends to toy with his prey. Under normal conditions, Freddy cannot manifest his control over dreams in the real world, and his influence is limited to Springwood. He can be pulled into the real world, weakening him as he lacks access to his power over his dreams. He can be defeated by laying his remains to rest in hallowed ground. In the real world, he is vulnerable to crosses, holy water, and reflections, which remind him of all the pain and torment he's forced on others. He can only truly exist and utilize his powers as long as he is feared; otherwise, he will lose much of his influence. If the Dream Demons that grant him his powers leave or are forcibly stripped away from him, he will lose many of his powers and will be left vulnerable to death. | After fusing with the Necronomicon, Freddy will invariably, inevitably have all of his powers stripped away from him by his Dream Demons, leaving him a normal man once again
