For the myth in GTA San Andreas, see Freddy Krueger (GTA SA).

Freddy Krueger is a peculiar myth in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


The Assault Rifle in GTA Vice City is named the Kruger, which is a reference to Krueger's name and a hint towards the 1985 film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge. This reference leads many myth hunters to report their particular encounters with the myth, many of which were fan-fiction movies created on YouTube. Such a movie was uploaded by Saul Aaron in 2009.[1] The movie featured Ken Rosenberg dreaming about Krueger assaulting him in places like the Marina Parking Lot. The Krueger version made by Saul Aaron was, 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,[2] even though the content and history of the movie is based on solely Jason, the theme might be taken from both Slasher movies. Despite minor references and fan videos, the myth doesn't feature any technical evidence that can prove its existence, thus making it a false myth.
