-> A Lin Kuei cyborg that possesses the forms of Sektor, Cyrax and Cyber Smoke, [[spoiler: along with Kuai Liang]]. Originating as part of a hidden Lin Kuei data storage housing the physical and mental data for the clan's members, a Special Forces weapons lab team recovered and uploaded the files into a test body for study. However, the storage turned out to contain an AI, which combined the files of the aforementioned Lin Kuei and proceeded to destroy the lab before vowing to kill all humans and restore the Lin Kuei. It was made available as part of the Kombat Pack 2 DLC.

** One of his Brutalities, "Friendship": after performing his throw, Triborg summons one of his alters to finish the opponent off, either with Cyrax's bombs, Sektor's RocketPunch, Smoke's flesh-melting clouds, or [[spoiler:...or Cyber Sub-Zero's cryomancy.]]

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A Special Forces team wanted to build a working robot [[CyberNinja ninja]] they obtained from the Lin Kuei files, so they decided to use the data storage housing the physical and mental files for Sektor, Cyrax, Smoke and [[spoiler:Cyber Sub-Zero, into the cybernetic body that Sub-Zero briefly inhabited before being converted into a revenant. Upon activation, the AI [[AIIsACrapshoot suddenly became aware]] (possibly because Special Forces used four data files instead of one, corrupting the robot and making it go unstable), killing all humans in the lab, before vowing to restore the Lin Kuei to its old glory. But since Sub-Zero had sullied the Lin Kuei name, the robot, now calling itself "Triborg", [[StartMyOwn forms the Tekunin]] by saving the brainwave data of his fellow Lin Kuei onto the S-F servers and uses the S-F's resources to create new robotic bodies for them; it's also possible that he may have also [[UnwillingRoboticization converted the dead humans in S-F lab into robots]].

* SuperpowerfulGenetics: As was revealed in MortalKombat9, Johnny Cage is a descendant from a long line of superhuman Mediterranean warriors bred to serve gods, and Cassie continues the bloodline. She has her own, aerial version of Johnny's Shadow Kick, and can do the classic version as a combo string ender. However, she either didn't inherit or hasn't developed her powers enough to use Johnny's Forceballs, instead opting to use military hardware like her mother. [[spoiler: She eventually manifests a protective green energy aura at the end of Story mode to protect her father from Shinnok, just like her father did twenty years prior.]]

* NobleDemon: To a certain extent. While his morality is questionable and he's driven by {{greed}}, he's willing to spare and negotiate with opposing parties if it's of his interest. When he isn't being a {{troll}}, in combat ,he assures his foe that he's OnlyInItForTheMoney and that it isn't anything personal, unless they press a BerserkButton.

Added DiffLines:

** Erron mocking Kenshi for being subordinate to a woman is ironic considering other intros reveal that he was aligned with Mileena's faction at one point.

* FakeShemp: The Predator's vocal clips are recycled from the Rebellion ''Alien Vs Predator'' game.



* CompositeCharacter: Primarily draws from [[Film/TheTexasChainSawMassacre1974 the first film]] in his appearance and moveset while his Butcher variant gives him [[Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre2003 remake outfit]]. However, his ending and biography confirm he has the last name Sawyer and answers to Drayton from ''Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre2''.
