* BossArenaIdiocy: Both played straight and subverted. If you try to tackle Onaga head-on, he'll probably come across as a SNKBoss. However, if you walk into one of the six Kamidogu located in the corners of his arena, Onaga will immediately be knocked out of any attack he was attempting and will kneel over in a pain for a second, opening him up for a free combo. However, the Kamidogu don't regenerate between rounds, so you only get six shots in all of opening up a can of whup-ass on Onaga before you have to resort to fighting him fairly. Also, his arena contains a DeathTrap; you can't knock him into the spikes, but he ''can'' knock ''you'' into them if you're by the edge.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In Armageddon when Quan Chi is making his case for organizing the Forces of Darkness, Onaga objects to allying with any of those present (Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, and Shao Kahn) stating "I will not join an alliance of traitors!"
** {{Hypocrite}}: Of course in Li Mei's, admittedly non-canon ending, he's perfectly willing to reward somebody who betrayal is beneficial to him.

Of course in Li Mei's, admittedly non-canon ending, he's perfectly willing to reward somebody who betrayal is beneficial to him. The "alliance of traitors" thing is probably particularly a snub towards Shao Kahn for betraying Onaga long ago, but it doesn't make Onaga any less treacherous himself.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Clearly inspired by the likeness of Darius Rucker of ''Hootie and the Blowfish'' fame. They virtually share the exact same first name as well as facial features. His alternate is based on Jim M. Kelly's character from the 1974 martial arts film "Black Belt Jones"

* ShoutOut: 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.

* {{Jerkass}}: He doesn't have a lot of screen time but if him rubbing in Shujinko's face about how he manipulated him is anything to go by, he definitely is.



* KickTheSonOfABitch: The first thing he does after becoming all powerful in his ''Armageddon'' ending? Condemn Shao Kahn to AFateWorseThanDeath.

* UnholyMatrimony: With Li Mei in her ''Deception'' in return for aiding her against his enemies.



* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Since he has no speaking role he has no characterization beyond his end goal.

[[folder: Lucifer]]

-> A god or demon who previously ruled the Netherrealm before Shinnok was banished there and promptly took over.

* ChaosIsEvil: When Shinnok took over one of the first things he did was build a city whereby some degree of civilisation could operate and sorcerers could use their magic, which of course implies that Lucifer didn't really care about doing any such thing.
* GodOfEvil: One character mentions that he is of the same species as Raiden, so presumably he is literally an evil god (unless SatanIsGood is put in effect).
* {{Satan}}: Seems to be this, given his name and status as (former) ruler of the Netherrealm, which is basically the ''MK'' equivalent of Hell. What else they has in common, if anything, remains to be seen.
* TheUnseen: Never actually shows up in any game and has only been briefly mentioned in passing by other characters.
