* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Players themselves could actually get hit with this trope; instead of performing a Fatality against an opponent, a player, through a button combo, could grant "Mercy" which would allow the opportunity to perform an Animality, but it also gave the opponent a little bit of a second wind, making it possible to mount a comeback and beat the player who granted mercy.

** The SNES version of Noob Saibot has him as a proper ninja with his trademark special moves.

** As an interesting twist, the SNES version has a technically legitimate way to play as Sheeva, albeit limited to one mode only, and also depends on chance. If you enter Endurance VS mode (by holding L and R when you hit Start), you can hit Up + the Start button to allow random select for all eight of your characters. Sometimes one of your picks will be a blue E in a green background, which corresponds to Sheeva's removed portrait sprite, and when that character comes up in your rotation, you'll be playing as her.

* PromotedToPlayable: Series-wide, Jade, who went from a secret CPU-only challenger in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatII'' to starting character in ''[=UMK3=]''. Within the ''[=MK3=]'' engine, we have:
** Vanilla to ''Ultimate'': Smoke.
** Arcade/[[UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn Saturn]] ''Ultimate'' to 16-bit ''Ultimate'': Noob Saibot and Rain. Also, Classic Sub-Zero, Mileena and Ermac are made playable from the start rather than unlockable.
** Vanilla and ''Ultimate'' to ''Trilogy'': Motaro and Shao Kahn.

* DreamMatchGame: ''Trilogy'' is a rare American example. It follows the same basic story as ''Mortal Kombat 3'', but includes a few characters from the first two who were missing from the ''Ultimate'' roster (namely Johnny Cage, Baraka and Raiden, plus Goro and Kintaro in the [=PS1=] version), in addition to alternate versions of other characters. Since Johnny Cage was killed off in ''Mortal Kombat 3'', they try to explain his presence in ''Trilogy'' by claiming that he was temporarily brought back to life so he could assist in the efforts against Shao Kahn.

The ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' series was at the height of its of popularity in [[TheNineties the mid-90s]]; with the huge success of the first two games, another sequel was pretty much inevitable -- and in 1995, '''''Mortal Kombat 3''''' was launched. The game premiered in arcades before being ported to the UsefulNotes/SuperNES, UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, UsefulNotes/GameBoy, UsefulNotes/GameGear, UsefulNotes/PlayStation, and PC. Roughly half of the second game's cast returned (Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sub-Zero, Shang Tsung, and Jax), Sonya and Kano returned, and several new characters -- including {{Cyber Ninja}}s Smoke, Cyrax, and Sektor, as well as [[GasMaskMooks Kabal]], [[MultiArmedAndDangerous Sheeva]], [[BadassNative Nightwolf]], [[BadassNormal Kurtis Stryker]], and Kitana's resurrected mother [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Sindel]] -- were introduced.

* TakeThatAudience: Shao Kahn's taunt [[BreakingTheFourthWall to the player]] is an unmistakable "You Suck". The iPhone version made this an achievement for losing to him 3 times in a row, as well as one called [[NoYou "No, YOU Suck!"]] for beating him.
