* DuelingMovies: With another dark fantasy film from New Line, ''Film/{{Spawn}}'', and another martial arts movie from New Line, ''Film/RushHour''. It lost to both, but ''Spawn'' also earned some hard knocks from critics.

* CreatorKiller: Director John Leonetti's career outside of cinematography was appropriately annihilated by ''Mortal Kombat: Annihilation''; he wouldn't direct again until 2006 and only directed two more movies since.
** The film also performed a Fatality on the career of producer Lawrence Kasanoff, which was a double flawless with the protracted production of his animated film ''WesternAnimation/{{Foodfight}}''; that movie's failure impaled his cinematic career period.



* FranchiseKiller: There were plans for a third movie follow up, but disappointing box office returns saw them fall by the wayside. Years later, there were serious talks of a new movie, that may or may not have been a true sequel, but production difficulties led to it being scrapped.
