With the exception I would argue of maybe one.
Toy Newkirk - Sheila Kopecky, A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)
Holding the title of the best Black Girl Nerd of all-time in horror, Sheila had some of the most memorable scenes with Krueger out of this bunch. Usually, there's an idea in high school television and film narratives that the so-called cool kids and nerds naturally clash. Oddly enough, The Dream Master was able to debunk this ideology effectively. Even though Sheila was a part of the pack that was plucked out quite early and with ease, she remains memorable and added some much needed diversity to Black women characters in media as a whole.
Kelly Jo Minter - Yvonne, A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)
Fran Bennett - Dr. Heffner, Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994)
Bennett's long resume of acting excellence truly shines in her brief yet memorable role as the doctor looking after a frantic Heather Langenkamp and her troubled son in Wes Craven's evolutionary piece based off of his original story. The delivery of her lines are quotable as an inside joke with your horror bestie. She stands as one of the best sub-supporting characters in the franchise, truly making her presence count.
Kelly Rowland - Kia Waterson, Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
