* AmbiguouslyBrown: Any time Jade is brought up in a discussion online, the speculation for her race/ethnicity ranges from Black, to Latina, to Indian, to Middle Eastern, to Southeast Asian... you get the idea. Most people tend to lean on "Black." Keep in mind that Edenians might not even have those kind of ethnic distinctions in the first place and that Edenia itself has a very [[UsefulNotes/TheMiddleEast Middle Eastern]] feel (meaning that calling Jade most of the above races are all palpable).

She's ''Edenian''.



* ButNotTooBlack: While not ethnically stated as black, her skin tone has always been brown. However, in some of the official art and renders for ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', she's barely tan. Her ''[=MK3=]'' retro skin also qualifies, but this is due to LazyArtist since that skin is also applied to Mileena, except the clothes are purple. Also in the movie adaption she appears in, ''Mortal Kombat: Annihilation'' she has Asian features that vastly differ to her portrayal in-game.

* ButNotTooBlack: While not ethnically stated as black, black (given that like fellow Edenians Kitana and Sindel, she is not from this world), her skin tone has always been brown.

Her ''[=MK3=]'' retro skin also qualifies, but this is due to LazyArtist since that skin is also applied to Mileena, except the clothes are purple.

** BlackBestFriend: [[AmbiguouslyBrown Maybe?]]



* RaceLift: All over the place. Jade started out as a clearly darker-skinned palette swap of Kitana, then was Asian in the movie, before finally settling on the AmbiguouslyBrown scheme we see above.

* ButNotTooBlack: Yet another Black character who eventually went through this. Was '''very''' dark-skinned starting in ''Deadly Alliance'', with clearly African traits in previous installments. [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 Now]], his complexion is that of Wrestling/DwayneJohnson and his traits are clearly mixed. ''MKX'', however, gives hims a darker complexion more in line with his traditional appearance.

* OverprotectiveDad: Toward [[Characters/MortalKombatX Jacqui Briggs]] when she is born. Jax was strongly against her joining the Special Forces, especially in the aftermath of the Netherrealm War, when the military began to tackle threats from supernatural dimensions on top of standard threats. [[ProperlyParanoid Understandably so]], given [[spoiler:Jax spent years as a revenant in Quan Chi's service]]. According to a memory she and Cassie share in one chapter, when Johnny broke the news to Jax [[PapaWolf he came home with a broken jaw]]. It also is PlayedForLaughs in one pre-fight dialogue bit.

* MasterSwordsman: He can perform some rather impressive flourishes with his kori-blades, and can pull off some improbably complicated techniques flawlessly. Best exhibited in his sword-fight with Scorpion in the ''Armageddon'' opening cinematic, where he manages to parry Scorpion's sword-blow ''from behind'', ''across his back'', and ''then'' drive Scorpion back, all without turning around. Kenshi's got nothing on him.
-->'''Kenshi:''' Care to test me?
-->'''Sub-Zero:''' I too wield a sword.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Congratulations Sub-Zero, you've buried the hatchet with Hanzo Hasashi by revealing who really killed his clan. Too bad Scorpion then proceeded to beat up Johnny Cage, Sonya and Kenshi, and killed Quan Chi, the only person who could've freed the revenant kombatants, and ended up freeing Shinnok.]]

* {{Hunk}}: ''With'' or ''without'' cybernetic arms.



* ScaryBlackMan: Largely averted. He's actually level-headed and easily approachable. Piss him off, however, and the trope is then played painfully straight.
