** Henry Dittman ([[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kabuto Yakushi]]) is Rain.
** [[DescendedCreator As usual]], series co-creator Ed Boon moves his chords for Scorpion's iconic "Get over here!" and "Come here!" quotes (albeit thanks to re-used vocals from ''[=MK4=]'' onward), as well as voicing a few minor background characters on the side.
** Similarly, Raiden's gibberish yells during his Torpedo special moves are the exact same vocals from ''[=MK2=]'' and ''Trilogy''.

* WriterRevolt: Downplayed. Sony told the developers [[ExecutiveMeddling they weren't allowed]] to make Kratos look "weak", and thus a number of Fatalities were given unique differences when being done on Kratos. Kratos makes a cameo in the story mode... Albeit in [[HumanPopsicle a block of ice]], implying that Kratos was defeated off-screen by Sub-Zero. The ice is conspicuously empty in the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game, leaving the impression that this was done ''specifically'' for Kratos.

[[note]]Kratos reacts more confrontationally (as opposed to fearfully) when finishing moves are performed on him and some of the more silly aspects, like Johnny Cage planting a trophy on his opponent's split skull, are omitted when Kratos is the victim.[[/note]] Kratos makes a cameo in the story mode...

Added DiffLines:

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: Freddy Kreuger's story in the game specifically calls out the fact he's wearing two claws when he normally only uses one, due to the game's reversible stances (since the Front and Back limbs aren't fixed because of the ability to swap a character's stance on a dime, any attack Freddy can use with one hand, he must be able to do with the other).

Added DiffLines:

** Early footage showed Scorpion originally had Quan Chi's "On Your Knees" Fatality and then a later trailer showed he was probably going to have Kano's "Eat Your Heart Out" Fatality as well (he uses it on Sub-Zero in a CGI trailer but not in gameplay).

** [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Gravity Squeeze]] for Ermac's "Cannonball Slam" X-Ray Move, due to its aesthetic similarities to [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Magneto]]'s [[LimitBreak Level 3]] in ''[=MvC3=]''.
