*** At that, they only really did anything because Shao Kahn WON by cheating. That was sort of the point of Raiden's message to the past, beating Shao Kahn more or less led directly to the events of the following four games, in which more death and destruction was caused by the bad guy of the week circumventing the tournament as opposed to letting the Elder Gods enforce the rules.

** RuleOfCool. It's just too awesome to be able to fight with/against these characters, despite the NostalgiaFilter that will clearly come to play when dealing with some veteran fans.

* Why don't the Elder Gods allow Armageddon? Why try to prevent it? Armageddon is supposed to destroy the Realms aka the One Being. The Elder Gods have made it clear their are indifferent to the realms unless a direct threat to them arises. If Armegeddon destroys the realms than their is no more One Being and no more threat to them. So why take steps to prevent it?

** Much as I hate to cite ''Film/MortalKombatAnnhilation'' for ''anything'', the one really good plot point in the film is that, when Shao Kahn accepts Liu Kang's challenge to Mortal Kombat to fight for the fate of Earth, Kahn loses his godly immortality, as it would be [[{{Understatement rather an unfair advantage in a fight to the death.]] Perhaps, when Raiden actually participates in a tournament (instead of just coaching from the sidelines), he's BroughtDownToBadass. The rest of the time, he's beholden to the byzantine rules that govern conduct between realms, so while he might be metaphysically capable of snapping his fingers and permanently sealing all portals to Earthrealm, the rules don't allow it.

** FromACertainPointOfView, she is Kitana's sister. Her "father" (Shao Kahn) ordered her creation, using Kitana's DNA, melded it with another of his choosing (Tarkatan), and taught her to be exactly what he wanted. Mileena asserting that she's Shao Kahn's daughter, and thus Mileena's sister, is probably a lot better for her self-esteem than admitting she's Shao Kahn's living weapon. [[spoiler: Besides, in MKX, Mileena presses hard her claim to the throne of Outworld, based on her being Shao Kahn's daughter. When it's revealed to others that she's just a clone created through sorcery and her claim has no real validity, it's kind of a huge deal.]]

* Why is everyone in MortalKombat vs DCUniverse besides Lex Luthor and Batman holding the IdiotBall like it was their best friend? I can understand [[UnstoppableRage the rage]] tends to make everyone homicidal at exactly the wrong moment, but what about the parts where someone could just explain the situation without overaggression (such as Batman & Raiden), or even look at the clues that their "enemies" were obviously suffering the same effects they were (nearly every other scene), I'm sure someone should've figured out that the destruction of both universes was bad for the people they think are causing it.

* What's with non-MK characters appearing in the post-2010 games? You can play as DC characters, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger, Alien, Leatherface, and Predator. What happened to the good old days where it was just Mortal Kombat characters? They don't need fancy gimmicks and horror villains to make money. The franchise was fine by itself.
