* 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.

* 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. 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.

** Special mention goes to Sonya Blade, who wears what looks like a fairly practical military-style vest. . . [[AbsoluteCleavage and that's it.]] [[MaleGaze Upon closer examination]], the vest not only has no zipper, but doesn't have enough material for it to close all the way even if it did. It's held closed only by [[BareYoufMidriff two small strips of cloth at her belly,]] and with Sonya's, err, [[MostCommonSuperpower physique]], there should be no way she could ''walk'', let alone perform flying jump kicks, without shaking completely out of her top. On several characters (notably Kitana, Jade, and Mileena) ClothingDamage from battle damage should result in the entire outfit [[WardrobeMalfunction falling completely off.]]

* {{Stripperiffic}}: All of the female characters in this game wear outfits that are so sheer that you can't help but wonder how their boobs don't fall out. At one point in the campaign, [[spoiler:Mileena (when she's introduced in the story) fights wearing nothing but bandages that barely cover her crotch and her nipples. She also fights wearing them in the final Tower Challenge and, if you beat this challenge, you will unlock this outfit for her.]]

* BodyHorror: Most to all of the fatalities.
** Klassic Reptile: Practically the same as ''[=MK1=]''. Be on The Pit, get a Double Flawless and perform a Fatality. Oh, and [[LuckBasedMission a shadow has to fly by the moon]].

** Stryker proved to be the greatest BadassNormal not because he took down Reptile and Mileena, but because his track record includes Kintaro AND Ermac. Quite an accomplishment for his first day on the job.
** Kabal's SuperSpeed was shown to be a result of Outworld magic, which he used to beat Mileena and Noob Saibot in a handicap match, Sheeva, and he even captured [[spoiler:Cyber Sub-Zero, which is quite a feat considering that Sub-Zero is one of the strongest fighters in both continuities.]]



** Bi-Han has this as Sub-Zero and Noob-Saibot. While his defeat and death at the hands of Scorpion was no surprise to everybody who started the franchise from the second game and beyond, especially since Scorpion forced him to fight at the Netherrealm where he had the HomeFieldAdvantage by getting stronger the longer he stayed there, his earlier defeat by Sonya is somewhat unexpected considering that she was beaten by future ButtMonkey Johnny Cage in a fight and it was acknowledged by Raiden that the events of his spinoff game were canon, making his defeat more surprising since he was capable of [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeating several gods, including Shinook himself]] yet failed to defeat a mortal opponent. As Noob Saibot, he got defeated by Kung Lao and Nightwolf, opponents that Scorpion defeated ''without'' resorting to the Netherrealm, lost a handicap match against Kabal in spite of having Mileena as a partner, and was defeated by Kuai Liang in spite of having defeated him in the original timeline.

** Shang Tsung was a former champion of Mortal Kombat with his only confirmed losses in the original timeline being against Liu Kang, Quan Chi, and Onaga. While many saw him getting his ass kicked by Liu Kang coming from a mile away, nobody expected Smoke to beat him and Reptile in a handicap match (although Shang Tsung was using Bi-Han's form at the time), nor did they expected Kung Lao to defeat him and Quan Chi in spite of the Deadly Alliance being capable of taking down Liu Kang, Shao Kahn, and Raiden in the original timeline, much more so when Shang Tsung personally killed Kung Lao by himself in the aftermath of the fifth game.

* AdaptationalWimp: Apparently, Raiden's CosmicRetcon not only affected the timeline, but also the strength of some of the characters who get defeated in Story Mode. While Mortal Kombat's original timeline was never specific with its story to determine the fighting strength of its characters, there were some of them whose strength were very noticeable to the point that it seems impossible that they were beaten by the characters the player is using in Story Mode.
