Batman vs Freddy Krueger: Here's Who Would Win

Two men that haunt the nightmares of their foes. Batman, the Dark Knight, and Freddy Krueger, the Dream Demon that haunts the nightmares of his victims on Elm Street. Only one can win. Can Bruce beat the burned serial killer, or will he never wake up again?


Batman Powers And Abilities

Last I heard, Batman was the defender of the night, not the defender of nightmares.

He stalks the criminals of the night, saves Gotham in times of peril, and has put plenty of supervillains away. He is Batman. Juggling the life of billionaire playboy, Bruce Wayne, and the crime-fighting vigilante, Batman, by night. The biggest mystery is how he finds time to sleep.

One of the founders of the Justice League, and father to the Bat-Family, the DC Universe has been impacted greatly through his feats. He’s ready to take on any challenge, with contingency plans upon contingency plans for any scenario he can think of.

What Batman lacks in superpowers, he makes up for by being the smartest, fastest, and strongest human alive. Batman made himself without the use of powers or drugs, only his determination, and will. There’s not a criminal, a crooked cop, or supervillain that doesn’t fear Batman.

Freddy Krueger Powers And Abilities

It's his dream come true to kill people in their dreams.

When you see his iconic clawed glove in your dream, it’s time to run. The damned soul of a serial killer who just can’t stop what he loves to do so much. Freddy haunts the nightmares of his victims and murders them in their sleep. 

After being burned to death by the parents of the children he was hurting, his fiery ghost wasn’t done. Turning into a dream demon, the Springwood Slasher killed plenty more people since he’s died, but that’s not all. Fighting killers such as Jason Vorhees, he’s no stranger to a bit of a mashup.

Wielding his bladed work glove, he’ll slash you to pieces while you’re sound asleep. You never want to be caught in one of his nightmares.

How the Battle Would Go Down

There are a lot of factors that go into play here. Batman is a master tactician, so if he has time to plan that could give him an advantage versus if he is just simply dropped into a fight. Freddy also could have an advantage depending on if they are fighting in the dream world or real world. To make things interesting, the scenario is going to be taking place in the dream world, but Batman has had a day to prepare himself and do some research on his opponent.

I assume Batman would spend the entire day learning about Freddy Kruger’s backstory and his powers. Once he learns, he’s a dream demon he would probably ask for advice from someone in the Justice League Dark such as John Constantine.

Once the day has passed, and Bruce gathered all he could get, it would be time for him to go to sleep and enter Freddy’s dream world. Freddy is powerful when in his victim’s dreaming mind, however, only if they fear him. Normally, the Springwood Slasher goes after teenagers who fear his entire being. He’s never gone after someone like Batman before.

Bruce Wayne has undergone intense training to have full control over his emotions and mind. Being able to take control of his own dream should be quite easy for him, making Freddy less powerful.

The Caped Crusader could also feel no fear towards Krueger, which would weaken him even more, this would cause the two really to rely on hand to hand combat. Since Batman knows 127 different martial arts, Freddy’s claw may not be enough to give him an advantage, even if he is in his own realm.


And The Winner Is...

Batman. The battle is truly one of the mind and not the body, and Batman’s true superpower is his mind. He has total control over his emotions and thoughts which is why he would easily overpower Freddy Krueger.
