Freddy Kruegar is an iconic horror villain from A Nightmare on Elm Street who bears similarities to both The Rake and Slender Man.
Relation to The RakeEdit
Like the Rake, Freddy's trademark weapon is his clawed hand, albeit he only has one, which was artificially created.
Also like The Rake, he preys on sleeping victims, albeit The Rake sneaks up on them while they sleep, while Freddy directly invades their dreams.
Relation to Slender ManEdit
Like Slender Man, Freddy targets children and teenagers, and is able to affect the dreams of his targets. Freddy has also occasionally shown mind control capabilities, slightly similarly to Slender Man, although Freddy's mind control capabilities are on a much smaller scale.
Many fans have also created fan art and fan fiction of the two battling each other, wondering who would win in a fight between the two, usually favoring Slender Man.
