Freddy's™ Coming! is a song in A Nightmare on Elm Street (NES). It in the game, if the player stays in the dream world too long, One, Two, Freddy's Coming For You starts to play. After Nine, ten: Never sleep again, the player is greeted with flashing bloody red text on a black background that says, FREDDY'S™ COMING!. The game then cuts to a battle with Freddy™ in a short room. After the player deals enough damage to Freddy™, he jumps offscreen and the player returns to wherever they were before.

The fact that a trademark symbol was placed just after Freddy's name has made the screen into a sort of meme. The game's manual also refers to Krueger as "Freddy™".

The song also plays at the ending screen when the cliffhanger text is displayed.

The song was composed by David Wise using assembly in Rare's sound driver.
