** After defeating Scorpion in ''Shaolin Monks'', Scorpion gets dragged into the lava by skeletons. As his arm goes in, he gives the player a thumbs up. This is a reference to the ending of ''Franchise/{{Terminator}} 2'', in which the T-800 (Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger) gives John a thumbs up before he gets engulfed by molten metal.

** Her '''X''' look evokes Sarah Connor from the Franchise/{{Terminator}} franchise. What cements this even more is her use of flying drones in her Fatalities, which heavily evoke the designs of those seen in [[Ride/Terminator23DBattleAcrossTime the Terminator Ride at Universal Studios.]]

* '''Jax''''s fatality in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat3'' in which his arms turn into blades is likely a reference to the [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} T-1000]].

* The Nepalese character ''Kai'' has a [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed strong resemblance]] to African-American retired professional basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (given that Kai's prototype was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally to be a Black American instead of Nepalese]]), who was also student of Bruce Lee and also starred along with him in '''Film/GameOfDeath'''.

Added DiffLines:

** He was numerous visual elements and mannerisms evocative of [[Franchise/StarWars Emperor Palpatine]] and his appearance in ''X'' also has some elements of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse version of SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of Triborg, it is a robot with a [[AIIsACrapShoot rouge A.I.]] seeking the end of organic life that it deems as inferior to itself and also inhabits multiple bodies simultaneously. Sounds [[{{Expy}} eerily similar]] to ComicBook/{{Ultron}} in yet another tribute to Creator/MarvelComics.
