|For the myth in GTA San Andreas, see Freddy Krueger (GTA SA).|
The assault rifle in GTA Vice City is named Kruger, which is a reference to Freddy Krueger's name and a hint from the 1985 film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge. This reference leads many myth hunters to report their particular encounters of the myth, many of which were fan-fiction movies created on YouTube. Such as the movie that was uploaded by Saul Aaron in 2009. The movie featured Ken Rosenberg dreaming about encountering Freddy Krueger in the Marina Parking Lot. The Freddy's model made by Saul Aaron is in fact, a simple custom-made skin, adding Krueger's skin to Tommy's model. Many sightings about Krueger are faked in a similar way. According to Grand Theft Wiki, Knife After Dark is a reference to both Jason and Freddy Krueger, even though the content and history of the movie are based on solely Jason, the theme might be taken from both slasher movies. Despite minor references and fan-made videos, the myth doesn't feature any technical evidence that can prove its existence, thus making it a false myth.
