*** Even worse, doing this on Shujinko, depending on the console, will wield one of two occurrences. On the PS2, PSP, and GameCube versions, after Liu Kang forces Shujinko to rip off his own head, Liu Kang's own head does not appear. On the Xbox version, the moment he rips off his head, the game freezes with a [[JumpScare sudden, loud buzzing noise]] that is actually quite common for the console in general when it experiences errors like this.

When Ed Boon said that this would be the bloodiest game of the series, he wasn't making stuff up. The amount of material is enough to guarantee this game [[NightmareFuel/MortalKombat9 its own page]].

Like the previous entry, the game has enough material to warrant [[NightmareFuel/MortalKombatX a separate page]].

People would be lying if they said that [[MortalKombat the bloodiest fighting game series of all time]] hadn't given them [[NightmareFuel the most gruesome nightmares]] at least once.

** And her veil is see-through, which means you can see her Tarkatan maw ''at all times''! Makes you wonder how [[FailedASpotCheck no one ever noticed that upon close inspection]].

* [[HaveANiceDeath The]] GameOver [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ts-i3D8GNuw sequence.]] It's not the [[ForegoneConclusion inevitable impact with the ground]]. It's the set-up, especially the music, what really drives the point it home. Five seconds of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTbFLqxmXB4 this]] are more than enough to make you beg the character to just die already.

* [[spoiler:Scorpion killing Sub Zero in the announcement trailer. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill He drives his spear through his head, rips his head off, and uses a dagger to pin it to a tree.]]]]
** [[spoiler:The worst part? When Sub Zero's head gets pinned to the tree, we see that ''[[AndIMustScream HE WAS STILL ALIVE]]''.]]
* The X-Ray moves from [=MK9=] return, except now, instead of looking like... well... X-Ray photos, you can see the bones and organs in full detail.
** Kotal Kahn's X-Ray move involves stunning the opponent with a blast of [[ThePowerOfTheSun burning sunlight]], summoning a blade and promptly stabbing it through the opponent's throat, twisting the blade to break the neck, and then kneeing the person hard in the face.
** Cassie Cage's X-Ray deserves a special mention, as it involves one act towards an unfortunate male combatant that makes all men watching wince in pain: [[spoiler: ''testicular obliteration, caused by punching the testicles so hard it '''bursts''''']].
* New fatalities glimpsed from the E3 trailer include:
** [[InsectQueen D'Vorah]] shoots flies at her opponent and yanks them back leaving two gaping holes in their body. She does it again, this time aimed at ''their face'', with the bugs eating at their head until a bloody skull remains and rolls off of the body. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill And to put the icing on the cake]], she stomps it ([[{{Irony}} ironically, like any would do a bug]]).
** [[UnfinishedBusiness Scorpion]] burns [[TorsoWithAView a hole into his opponent's chest]], causing the heart to drop down into said hole, then they slump over for ''[[TearOffYourFace an entire face removal]]'' by sword; [[{{Squick}} the face slides off first, then the brain flops out next, all while the vocal cords are still moving, all visible in it's gory glory.]]
** [[AnIcePerson Sub-Zero]] freezes the centre of one's torso frozen then shatters it with a punch, [[TorsoWithAView leaving nothing but the spine]], which he yanks in half shortly thereafter. He's not done with them either; he hoists them into the air by their spine and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe tears them in half from there]].
** [[HugeGuyTinyGirl The new tag team]] [[TheBrute Torr]] and [[EvilGenius Ferra]] features Torr suspending the foe in the air with Ferra stabbing them through their head. Next she flips over to their back with her blades still embedded in their face and slides down (still with the blades inside). Torr pulls them apart and just tosses them to the ground in a pile, with the viewer [[SarcasmMode getting treated to a pleasant view]] of their insides in detail.
** [[ActionGirl Cassie]] [[GenerationXerox Cage]] has the least gory fatality out of the ones shown, but it's still unnerving ([[BlackComedy and funny]]). She [[MoreDakka shoots her opponent in both kneecaps]] [[BoomHeadshot and then in the head]]. She decides to add the proverbial (and likely literal) cherry on top by [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking sticking her bubblegum over the bullet wound and watch as it fills with blood and pops]].
** [[{{Mayincatec}} Kotal Kahn]] (much like an Aztec would) uses his ''spiked'' knife to cut into and across the opponent's chest. You'd think he'd just slip his hand inside and rip the heart out, [[DefiedTrope but nope]], he ''punches a hole'' into their chest instead and ''then'' he rips the heart out. He then crushes it over his face, [[BloodLust basking in the blood that rains upon him]]. [[MeaningfulName Blood God indeed]].
