Total Estimated Power Rating: 6
3 Base Intellect Points + 2 Base Physical Power Points + 1 Additional Physical Power Points for when in Dream World
Power Level: Low. Although able to impress females with his dream world physique, Kincaid is rather useless against real monsters. Barks significantly more than bites. However, his imaginary super strength could be extremely handy if you were to need help moving some imaginary furniture in the dream world.
Identification: Kincaid is easy to spot – he and his family are the only African Americans to live on Elm Street.
How to Recruit: Kincaid pretends to be tough, but he is afraid of Freddy just like everyone else. He knows however that fighting alongside other Dream Warriors is his only option of living a normal live. Not to mention that backing out is a sign of weakness, and Kincaid is too macho to refuse a fight.
How to Stay on His Good Side: Pretend to be impressed with his imaginary physical feats.
What to Look Out For: Don’t really count on Kincaid. He can barely save himself, much less save anyone else.
