* 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.

While the game was released in North America, Australia didn't get a chance to play it, due to the game's extreme violence and gore. But now, thanks to a new R18+ rating for Australian video game classification that was announced in early 2013, Aussies finally got their hands on this game (with all of the extra DLC, to boot) on the Xbox 360, [=PlayStation 3=] and [=PlayStation Vita=] on May 2013. It is the first Mortal Kombat game to be released under the ''Creator/NetherrealmStudios'' banner, a subsidiary of ''WB Games'' who picked up the franchise after ''Creator/MidwayGames'' shut down.

A PC port of ''Komplete Edition'' was confirmed for release in Summer 2013, and was released on {{Steam}} on July 3rd.

The game's story begins at the end of ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon Mortal Kombat: Armageddon]]'': Shao Kahn -- who now rules over all realms -- prepares to kill Raiden, the last remaining survivor of the apocalyptic battle. Before Kahn's finishing strike occurs, Raiden manages to send a cryptic message -- "[[ArcWords He must win]]" -- to [[VideoGame/MortalKombat his past self]], who now finds himself responsibile for [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong preventing Shao Kahn's ultimate victory]].

in 2013. It is the first ''Mortal Kombat'' game published by Creator/NetherrealmStudios, a WB Games subsidiary that picked up the franchise after the closure of Creator/MidwayGames.

The game's story begins at the end of ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon Mortal Kombat: Armageddon]]'': ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'': Shao Kahn -- Kahn, who now rules over all realms -- realms, prepares to kill Raiden, the last remaining only other survivor of the apocalyptic battle.

''Mortal Kombat'' retells the events of the first three games of the franchise, but thanks to Raiden's timeline alterations, events occur much differently than before. The game also serves as a return to the series' roots (as a 2.5D fighter) while including numerous modern-day touches; new gameplay mechanics include the chance to use enhanced versions of special moves, {{Combo Breaker}}s, and a highly-damaging [[LimitBreak X-Ray Move]] (which briefly shows the target's skeleton and other innards during impact). [[ButWaitTheresMore On top of that]], the [[LudicrousGibs ludicrously]] [[BloodierAndGorier bloody]] [[FinishingMove Fatalities]] (and [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Stage Fatalities]]) make their return -- and they're all gorier than ever before.

''Mortal Kombat'' also includes a tag team mode, a Challenge Tower (where players must complete certain tasks in order to advance), and an online King of the Hill Mode akin to ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Super Street Fighter IV]]''[='s=] Endless Battle mode.

As Creator/JJAbrams did with the 2009 film ''Film/StarTrek'', this game opens an AlternateTimeline in the ''Mortal Kombat'' franchise. The franchise's next installment, ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', takes place in it.

** Some character arcade endings have them interacting with other characters in the game, despite the possibility that you fought and killed them during the ladder. A specially obvious case of this is Baraka's ending [[spoiler: where it's revealed that the Shao Kahn he killed was actually Shang Tsung transformed, despite Shang Tsung being the eight battle at all times]].
