Doc, played by Yaphet Kotto, is a character in the film Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.

Doc, a counselor at Maggie Burroughs' shelter, is a dream counselor and often uses that therapy to help Tracy Swan. He can control his own dreams, allowing him to remember John Doe, Spencer Lewis and Carlos Rodriguez after their deaths although everyone else (except Maggie and Tracy) forgets them.

Doc discovers that the only way to kill Freddy Krueger is to bring him into the real world after pulling a piece of his sweater during a confrontation. He tells Maggie, and helps her defeat Freddy by giving her 3D glasses.
