** Suda51 has expressed a little interest in {{Defictionalization}} of the show if the opportunity comes up. Presumably it would be a scathing parody of anime tropes... or just plain MindScrew. Or both.

* None of [[Franchise/MortalKombat Johnny Cage's]] movies where actually ''shown'' in the game, but plenty were mentioned. A few notable ones were ''Dragon Fist'' (which had two sequels), ''HWAAAAA!!'' (which won an Oscar, according to ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat Deadly Alliance]]''), ''Sudden Violence'' (supposedly award-winning), and ''Ninja Mime'', which was a box-office flop in America; Cyrax loathed this one. He also supposedly stared in movies that were based on his experiences in the first two games of the franchise and ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat Deadly Alliance]]''. (The last one appeared to be his greatest success as an actor, but unfortunately, only existed in his non-cannon ending to that game.)
