* TheBadGuyWins: Subtly implied to have happened in the original timeline. While it has yet to happen in the new one, Shinnok's non-canon ending involves him awakening the One Being himself to achieve his RageAgainstTheHeavens.

* Anti-Villain: His motivations to overthrow opression in Order Realm seem to be reasonable and well-intentioned. The things he does to achieve his goals - not so much.

* FlatCharacter: We don't know much of him save for the fact that he's a Seidan.


Added DiffLines:

* WickedCultured: Is implied to be this with his "Rearrange" fatality, where he mixmatches his opponents body parts and pauses to contemplate over it for a few seconds, as if he's looking at the statue on modern art exhibition, only to kick the messed up body to the ground.

* {{Expy}}: A cocky, blond guy named Kobra who wears a sleeveless gi? There's absolutely no way in Hell that he ''wasn't'' modeled after '''C'''obra Kai bully Johnny Lawrence from ''Film/TheKarateKid''. His design outright spells this out; an omnipresent black and gold color scheme, a cobra design on the back of his gi, ''almost the '''exact''' same symbols on his outfit'' (not the same amount of symbols though) and a black gi for his second player outfit that is advertised quite often. Even one of his combos is called "Kobra Kai". After all of this you can't say that this wasn't intentional.

* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: [[AmbiguouslyBrown Keep in mind that he's Seidan like Hotaru and Dairou.]]

* {{Expy}}: Let's see: A bald black leader guy who wears cool shades leading a resistance that seeks to take down an oppressive system? Sounds like [[Franchise/TheMatrix Morpheus]]. Darrius is also compared with Comicbook/{{Blade}} (of which Film/BladeTrinity came out the same year as this game), though that latter one is likely more coincidental.

* GenderBlenderName[=/=]MeaningfulName: While the name Hotaru is more associated with men in Japan, the name is primarily thought of as a woman's name in the United States.
