** TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Zig-zagged and later on, downplayed. Despite weakening the Forces of Light, Shinnok is shown to be trapped in his own amulet by Raiden in the opening moments of ''Mortal Kombat X''. However, this was before the time-skip, and Quan Chi was still on the lam. True to form, Shinnok is freed again and proceeds to corrupt the Jinsei (Earthrealm's life force), but is eventually defeated and foiled after one hell of a struggle. Also, according to a vision shown to Kitana, the one who would've been destined to lead the charge in knocking off Shao Kahn and take power in the fallout of Armageddon in the original timeline was not Shinnok, but Kitana herself, who then would've reigned as Queen of Edenia. But despite his defeat(s), he DOES manages to break his arch-enemy Raiden by twisting him into something as evil as himself (Raiden is corrupted after purifying the Jinsei of Shinnok's taint, and [[FaceHeelTurn vows]] [[KnightTemplar to]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist go on]] [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope the warpath]] after the events of ''X'').]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Keeps Shinnok's real amulet in case the deal he has with him doesn't go the way he wanted and knew that Shang Tsung would betray him.



Miraculously, Raiden had regained some of his sanity and used his Elder God amulet to send a message to his past self from the first MK tournament before suffering the final blow at Kahn's hand, essentially pressing said button on the entire series and foiling Shinnok's plan. Except, in a move that ups the gambit level from Batman to Xanatos, ''[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Shinnok somehow counted on this to happen and would capitalize on this by sending his disciple Quan Chi in to position himself into Shao Kahn's inner circle over the course of the first three tournaments in order to work his necromancy on fallen kombatants with impunity]]''. The ensuing alterations in the timeline result in the Forces of Light being almost irreparably crippled, with the three most powerful women of Edenia as well as most of Earth's champions killed and turned into wraiths and thralls for the Netherrealm, and the most powerful obstacle to Shinnok's ascension, would-be Armageddon victor / Outworld emperor / first link in an entire army's immortality chain Shao Kahn, eliminated from existence. By the end of ''[=MK9=]'', Shinnok and Quan Chi are poised to begin their invasion once he's set free, with Earthrealm and Outworld '''FAR''' more vulnerable to a hostile takeover from the Netherrealm than they were in ''Mortal Kombat 4''/''Gold'' in the original timeline. In either timeline, Shinnok finds himself literally two moves away from becoming the evil king of the universe.]]
