* Stryker shows a bit of GenreSavvy when he immediately recognizes Mileena is a bad guy. In the Armageddon intro, Stryker shows his GenreSavvy again by being the first to run up the pyramid, but only after punching the lights out of Mileena who was distracted at the time.

* Raiden did the right thing in the first third of the game. Sure it didn't change the future (his amulet cracked) but at that stage it was too early to fulfill his future self's word as standing down at that stage would have just legalized Shao Kahn's invasion. He couldn't "win" until the second third and onwards (and even that is up for debate since Raiden accepting Shang Tsung's offer for an Outworld tournament is acknowledged by the Elder Gods, possibly validating the claim against Earthrealm if Outworld won their tournament; only when Shao Kahn crossed into Earthrealm without proper claim was he absolutely out of accord with the Elder Gods rules).

** Related to this, it may take a second to realize why characters like Kitana and Nightwolf are present at all during the events of the first game other than "why not". The tournament itself was vastly different in the first game to how we know it as now, as it was just any fighting tournament hijacked by Shang-Tsung. Most of the characters from the first game are Earthrealm warriors as a result, since the Earthrealm vs. Outworld plot didn't exist until after the first film. It's not just adding in characters for the sake of it, they're [[RetCon Retconning]] some of the fighters present to balance the teams out!

*** Well, it's been confirmed that Babalities only last 1 hour, and some kombatants actually retain their mental mind, which may explain why baby Shang Tsung sits contently, as if he's thinking about evil plans.

* While it's probably a writing oversight, when Nightwolf approaches Styker after his victory over Ermac, he says that Raiden is gathering Earth's defenders, to which Stryker replied "Well, Earthrealm defender is about 10 steps above my pay-grade!" How did Stryker know it was called Earth''realm'' when the very idea of other realms existing is something normal people like him wouldn't know about prior to Shao Kahn's invasion?

* When you look at the three cyborg's damaged modes, Cyrax and Sektor show mechanical parts that are metallic. When Cyber Sub-Zero takes damage, you can see red fibers and his brain. Seems kinda weird (as it makes him look like a skinned human in armor rather than a cyborg) until you realize that those fibers are not his muscles, but coolant pipes running through his body.

** One could also theorize Kenshi and Skarlet's lack of use in the Story Mode was also due to to either one of them derailing the story. In Kenshi's case providing Earthrealm's defender with another powerful warrior who could have made a difference when the time came (such as when Sindel went on her killing spree). In Skarlet's case letting Outworld's army have a woman who could make things even worse for Earthrealm than in the current story.

** Which she'd be more then capable of since she was jacked up on Shang's soul. But why does Shang's soul both her up significantly while he himself doesn't come close to being that strong? Remember Shang steals the majority of the souls to keep himself alive and his body vigorous, Sindel has none of Shang's longevity issues and thus can use all the power Shang had stored up in him at full blast.

* Why did the heroes get slaughtered so easily by Sindel? Because they were holding back in the begining because it was Kitana's mother and Raiden had likely filled them in on the nature of her death and resurection. They were trying to contain her so Kitana could break the spell controlling her but, Sindel hit them too hard too fast for them to recover.
