* ShowsDamage: definitely. The one exception are the X-Ray moves, where bones heal between blows. (This is easily verified by using Kitana's, which involves shattering her opponent's skull twice. [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Programmer oversight]] or GenreSavvy character?)

* WrongGenreSavvy: Johnny Cage begins his chapter thinking the entire tournament is a bunch of special effects and people with costume gimmicks. It isn't until he's ordered to kill Baraka and learning Sonya is actual military does he realize the monsters and powers are real.

** In the original timeline, Liu Kang lived through the events of MK3 and defeated Shao Kahn, only to later die at the hands of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung, later being brought back as a zombie. In the new timeline, [[spoiler:Shang Tsung dies when Shao Kahn sacrifices him to give Sindel more power, and Raiden kills Liu Kang himself.]]

* AmbidextrousSprite: Due to how the button mapping works in this game (each of the character's limbs gets a button, similar to ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'', except they aren't fixed to left/right but rather front and back), the characters can stand with either arm out in front and have all their attacks function exactly the same (with the player being able to force a stance switch by pressing both kicks). Because of this function, [[SerendipityWritesThePlot Freddy Kreuger to has to wear two claws]] instead of just one.

** One particular plot point that was retconned involved the resurrection of Sindel during MK3's story. Originally, according to MK3's prologue screens, Shao Kahn had devised the plan himself ten thousand years ago, to resurrect Sindel (with Shang Tsung's help) on Earthrealm soil so Kahn would have the power needed to breach the dimesional gates and conquer Earth, the plan itself being enacted in full once Kahn became frustrated with Earth's warriors repeatedly foiling his earlier takeover attempts. ''Trilogy'' slightly retconned this point so that he carries it out while the heroes are distracted with the events of MKII. In '''9''''s story mode, however, the plan is now thought of on-the-spot by Quan Chi, with neither Shao Kahn or Shang Tsung having any part in the actual resurrection itself.
** Scorpion's backstory: On the original game, he wanted revenge on the elder Sub-Zero for killing him. He also turned into the younger Sub-Zero's mentor in Mortal Kombat 2 as an apology for killing his brother. His family and clan being assassinated and blamed upon the ''younger'' Sub-Zero happened in Mortal Kombat 4. This version blames it all upon the elder Sub-Zero and makes the younger one Scorpion's enemy from the start.
** Kitana's backstory: On the original game, she and Mileena grew up together as Shao Kahn's assassins, with Kitana believing Mileena was her twin sister. Way before Mortal Kombat 2's events, Kitana had found out all by herself her real father has been killed by Shao Kahn and her sister was a clone. She kept this in secret until the right opportunity came to her, the tournament in Mortal Kombat 2. This version has Kitana only finding out all of this when Mortal Kombat 2's tournament had started and when Raiden spoke to her.
