A malevolent spirit of the Dream Realm, Freddy Krueger preys on the souls of the living as they sleep. When Shao Kahn began to steal Earthrealm's souls--souls Freddy considered his own--Freddy battled the emperor in the Dream Realm. But Shao Kahn's will was too strong. He pulled Freddy into the real world, where he was mortal, and defeated him. A badly injured yet determined Freddy fitted both his hands with demonically enhanced razor gloves. Once he has killed Shao Kahn he will find a way back to the Dream Realm, where he will torment Earthrealm's souls for eternity.
Freddy Krueger's bladed hands tore through Shao Kahn.
The demonically enhanced weapons had been more than a match for the emperor's dark magic.
Though Freddy had saved Earthrealm, Nightwolf recognized him as an evil spirit and, in a Shamanistic ritual, sent him back to the Dream Realm. But that decision proved ruinous.
Freddy did not resist; he welcomed a return to immortality.
From the Dream Realm he will again create a Nightmare in Earthrealm.
