** Johnny Cage was beaten by Cyrax, no idea about Sonya, she may have forfeited somehow without realising it. As for why not all matches are two on one in some cases multiple opponents would be an advantage as they'd get in each other's way.

* The PS Vita version of the game has a whopping '''fifteen''' costumes added to it compared to the other versions of the game! Why couldn't they have added those to the PC and console versions via DLC after the Vita version was released? Isn't the fact that the Vita version is portable and has extra Challenge levels incentive enough to get more than one copy of the game?

* This Troper's theory is that Quan Chi brainwashed him when he brought him back from the dead, same way he did with Sindel.

* How does the first tournament even work? Liu Kang is presented at the only Earthrealm warrior to "reach this level" on his match against Ermac. Yet, neither Johnny Cage nor Sonya have lost a match - Kung Lao can be excused by the fact that he's not supposed to be here. Similarly, how can Ermac be at this level when he's just been introduced as a new kombatant and has therefore not fought anyone? How do the brackets for this tournaments even work? How are 2 vs 1 matches legal for Mortal Kombat (Such as Liu Kang Vs. Scorpion and Quan Chi)? Why doesn't Shang Tsung make ALL matches 2 vs 1 to stack his odds? He's got more warriors anyway (Kitana, Jade, Cyrax, Sektor, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Quan Chi, Baraka, Ermac, Goro and Himself) Vs Earthrealm's 5 (Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Sonya, Nightwolf and Johnny - Raiden doesn't take part in the tournament).

***I totally buy this, but why didn't Bi-Han simply say, "Dude, that happened centuries ago, I'm not the guy you're looking for?" And why doesn't Scorpion realize any of this? Come to that, how do the Lin Kuei know anything about Netherrealm, Mortal Kombat, or Outworld? Are they not just a family of assassins?

**I thought the whole deal was that he framed Earthrealm for abducting [[spoiler: Sindel]], allowing him to legally invade it. As for why the Elder Gods don't know better, well... the Gods must be crazy.

* Regarding Noob Saibot's Fatality. He splits his opponent clean in the middle while the poor bastard screams all the way to the head. My gripe is that the opponent is ''still'' screaming even after the throat got split, isn't that where the vocal chords are located? Shouldn't that render screaming impossible?

*** If it's a game of elimination, why does Scorpion fight Sub Zero? The Lin Kuei may be from Earth Realm but in the tournament they fight for Outworld as mercenary (As mentioned by Sektor and Cyrax) so why would Scorpion (Who is also subcontracted to Outworld) fight against his own side?



* Why couldn't the original Sub-Zero beat Scorpion during Shang Tsung's tournament? He had already beaten him in the Netherrealm while he was a spectre/revenant, so even with the power-up of being undead he was still no match for him. What, did Scorpion just get a few lucky rolls on his critical hits?
