* SoBaditsGood: The show cares nothing for either the games or its own continuity, most of the characters that appear are about several hundred years too early and ALL of the characters from the game have their backstories and personalities[[note/]]Which mind you where developed better on an early 90'S FIGHTING GAME[[note]] butchered sans Shao Kahn and arguably Shang Tsung...''arguably'', the "heros" are greedy, stupid, hot tempered, selfish, violent, and often the villainís plans only get as far as they do because the good guys are being blithering idiots, they very rarely learn anything and suffer AesopAmnesia almost OnceAnEpisode sometimes in the very episode that they learned whatever lesson they where suppose to, 9/10 the villains' plans are IdiotPlots, the absolutely absurd amount of effort put in to make EVERY women Stripperiffic and covered in makeup in a medieval-esq setting is more likely to trigger faceplams or FanDisService than anything else,[[One woman gained a SuperForm from an ancient Black Dragon and the form consisted of a black bra and short shorts[[note]] it uses some of the lowest cheapest tricks for drama this side of GameofThrones, the bee women... just the bee women, the acting is inconsistent across the board, and the action scenes[[note/]]as well as the writing[[note]] are vastly inferior to other action shows of the time like Hercules and Xena and Power Rangers, but damn is it fun to riff.

* ShipTease: Taja and Siro had quite a few little moments where they seemed like more than just friends.

Added DiffLines:

* ObviousStuntDouble: A few examples, but the biggest is the stunt double they hired for Jaime Pressly as Mika. In addition to the obvious wig she's wearing, her face is even shown a few times.

Added DiffLines:

* AbortedArc: In the premier, Shang Tsung vows to free the warriors imprisoned in Shao Kahn's mines so that he can raise up an army and overthrow him. This plot point is never ever mentioned again.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Mileena. Inverted when she first appears; she's uglier than her game counterpart, since her ugliness isn't limited to her lower face. Played straight after she partly loses her Kitana disguise; she still looks beautiful, save for some long teeth, which aren't so prominent as in the game.

* CelibateHero: Averted. As a monk Kung Lao should have been but he still flirted with lots of women and got some action with [[spoiler:Mileena]].

* CombatPragmatist: Shao Kahn doesn't hesitate to kick Raiden while he's down and punch him while he's already choking him.

** The one-shot character Tomas is pretty much a bland version of Johnny Cage, at least in appearance. He even uses his [[GroinAttack Nutcracker]] move at one point.

* KillEmAll: [[spoiler: Shao Kahn literally kills every major character at the end of the season. Season 2 would have had [[DivineIntervention the Elder Gods intervening]] and hitting the ResetButton [[http://www.mksecrets.net/index.php?section=mkc&lang=eng&contentID=5900&title=Mortal-Kombat-Conquest-Ending-and-Story-Timeline]] , but the show was cancelled, so Shao Kahn pretty much wins.]]

* PervertDad: In Episode 5: "The Essence," Kitana has to repeatedly remind Shao Kahn that she is his daughter, even if adopted against her will. She goes as far as to suggest he... "admire" the picture of her in her mother's room. His implications are explicit enough that it crosses into VillainousIncest. It does explain, however, why over the course of over 11 games Shao Kahn never has a "no daughter of mine is gonna dress like that" reaction to Kitana's Stripperiffic clothing.
** Interestingly enough, Kitana then downplays their relationship in Episode 12, emphasizing that she's his stepdaughter and thus owes him no loyalty or obedience. Shao Kahn's intentions are even more explicit in that episode, with extra Squick coming from his reaction to Mileena's offer to do "anything" if he lets her keep Kitana's beautiful face, and from his interaction with Kitana at the beginning it almost seems like Shao Kahn ordered Kung Lao killed out of jealousy that Kitana favored Kung Lao over him.

** Kung Lao and Kitana were teased as well during her appearances on the show, particularly Episode 12 when Kung Lao [[spoiler: sleeps with Mileena under the impression that she's Kitana.]]
* ShirtlessScene: Although it doesn't go near to balance out the amount of female characters in bikinis, there's still a fair few of these.
