* MythologyGag: A few:
** Several characters refer to the BadFuture where Shao Kahn wins as "Armageddon". Sure enough, you spend the whole game trying to avert the events of the ''MK'' game of that same name.
** When Quan Chi and Shang Tsung both team up for their fight against Kung Lao, Quan warns that nobody can stop their "Deadly Alliance". Shang even gives him a look at that one.
** Kung Lao's repressed jealousy of Liu Kang, and his sneaking into the first tournament to prove himself, come from ''MortalKombatShaolinMonks''

* HotterAndSexier: You could say Netherealm Studios took (ahem) ''advantage'' of the more powerful graphics engines on 7th generation consoles, as more boobage and less clothing was the order of the day for all the female characters. Basically, every female fighter combines AbsoluteCleavage, BareYourMidriff, ShesGotLegs, and WhoWearsShortShorts. Not to mention a majority of the male characters saw major musculature increase and are [[WalkingShirtlessScene Walking Shirtless Scenes]]. Interestingly, this game's immediate successor (''Videogame/MortalKombatX'') toned the Fanservice way down.

** On top of that, "mastering" each character requires spilling a certain quantity of blood with each of them. This is important if you want to get the Achievements or Trophies for mastering one character and then ''all'' of them.

* BloodlessCarnage: During most of the Story Mode, despite still suffering the horrifying effects of the various X-Ray attacks, none of the fighters show any physical damage during the fights. Fatalities are also a no-no, though the reasons for this should be obvious; Shang Tsung does call out the trademark "[[FinishHim FINISH HIM]]!!" in a few cinematics (when Johnny Cage defeats Baraka and when Cyrax beats Johnny), however no one complies.

* AdultFear: Stryker and Jade's Babalities tread rather close to this line, as Stryker's involves playing with a loaded gun, and Jade gets smacked on the head by her sharp-edged boomerang.

* JerkAssGods: The Elder Gods. Raiden goes to them for help begging them to stop Shao Kahn's illegal invasion. They claim Shao Kahn has not broken any rules since only merge is forbidden not invasion...which is contrary to they very reason the tournament was created AND the understanding of the rules in every medium since the beginning. It was created specifically to give weaker realms a fighting chance against the overpowering might of Outworld. Raiden calls them out on their callousness by pointing out invasion and merge is a ''distinction without a difference.''

** Due to the [[{{Stripperific}} very scant]] nature of some of the female costumes (notably Mileena's primary) and the battle damage that can ensue, this is arguably in effect for ''all'' female characters.

* AdaptationalBadass: Downplayed due to the characters always [[WorkdOfBadass being badass]] in the first place, but most of them (particularly those of the third game) not being able to show it due to the lack of details in the original timeline. Story Mode allows the characters to show their fighting styles to their fullest with some of the most obscure characters making quite an impact.
