** When Kano is escaping from the Red Dragon Clan's base, he mentions that they were planning to use him as a subject for experiments on creating Dragon-Human hybrids. On top of that, his arcade ending states that upon absorbing the power of Blaze that he ''transformed'' into a Black Dragon-Human hybrid being. These are likely in reference to the "Kano Transformations" joke that was included in the list of statistics in Videogame/MortalKombatII and [[UrbanLegendOfZelda subsequent fan speculation it spurred]].

* TheUnfought: While Kano and Shujinko are two character noted in the Konquest mode section below, but a more plot relevant example is Quan Chi. Taven spends the roughly last third of the storyline seeking to track him down to get more information on Daegon's plans and later to get vengeance for [[spoiler: Quan Chi's mortal wounding of Orin in an attempt to prevent Taven from being able to travel across the realms]]. The closest Taven gets to the necromancer following the spoiler protected event was during his speech in Shao Kahn's throne room.

* AscendedExtra: Meat and Mokap, who were just placeholders and JokeCharacters in their respective origin games (''4'' and ''Deadly Alliance''), are now legitimate kombatants (though Meat still has to be unlocked).

** A non-individual example is the Red Dragon Clan. They were introduced in Deadly Alliance as a fairly minor force with its only connection to the series' backstory being in connection to the Black Dragon Clan. Here the Red Dragon is fleshed out from being a simple ancient crime syndicate to being a group that seeks to help its founder achieve full godhood.



** Some of the less emphasized fights in the intro contain references to some of the subplots of the prior games of which include: Sonya Blade vs Frost (who were enemies in Deadly Alliance [[NoodleIncident for unexplained reasons]]), Jade vs Tanya (Jade had sought to hunt down the [[TheQuisling Edenian traitor]] during the events of Deception), and Sub-Zero vs Hotaru (Hotaru was ordered by Onaga to thwart his and Kenshi Takahashi's attempt to interrupt the Dragon King's AssimilationPlot in the prior game). Also, one of the identifiable fighters that Shao Kahn flicks away while climbing the Pyramid of Argus is Baraka (who lost Shao Kahn's favor when he, along with the rest of the Tarkatan horde, chose to pledge his loyalty to Onaga).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: After Taven has helped Sub-Zero in thwarting Noob Saibot's assault on the Lin Kuei Palace, Kuai Liang reveals to him that the wraith used to be his brother before he was corrupted into a minion of the Netherrealm. During the cutscene when Taven is leaving the Lin Kuei Palace he expresses his regret that [[CainAndAbel the brothers are now bitter enemies who tried to kill each other]]. This is preview to the conflict that Taven will discover himself as being in with his own brother.



** Of the highlighted fights that occur in Armageddon's intro, one of them is Kung Lao vs Baraka in reference to them being archenemies in ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatShaolinMonks Shaolin Monks]]''. Though Videogame/MortalKombat9 [[RetCanon also retconned]] the Tarkatans minions of Shao Kahn under Baraka's command as being responsible for the raid on the Wu Shi Academy that result in several fellow monks being killed and captured.
** Hotaru killing Li Mei in the intro is a vague reference to Shujinko defeating the former after his prison escape while using the latter's abilities.[[note]](Some elaboration for those unfamiliar with Deception. In the Konquest mode of that game, Shujinko would transform into whoever the last person he trained with was though In-story he was simply using another character's techniques.)[[/note]]

** The presence of Sektor's Tekunin forces is a nod to his ending in Tournament Edition, the last game he was playable in prior to this one.



* EnemyMine: The Forces of Darkness. As opposed to the Forces of Light, who are mostly comprised of [[TrueCompanions friends and family]] (and even the newcomers are on good standing with the more senior members), there is nothing but bad blood between the villains (and the occasional neutral character). Darrius hired Dairou to kill Hotaru, while [[OrderVersusChaos Hotaru and Havik]] don't hold each other in high regard. Several of the members would probably be better suited to fight for the Forces of the Light if it weren't for their personal vendettas. Take Nitara for instance. She's most likely the closest thing the group has to a TokenGoodTeammate (WordOfGod confirms that she's [[CharacterAlignment morally]] Neutral/Good), but is there to defeat Ashrah because [[spoiler:Ashrah's [[CoolSword Kriss]] is a KnightTemplar towards the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] race, which it sees as AlwaysChaoticEvil.]] Scorpion, an [[AntiHero anti-hero]], is another good example. He's only aligned with them because he ''hates'' Quan Chi '''intensely''' (seeing as the man was responsible for [[spoiler:killing his family]], it's pretty damn justified), but he ultimately engages in battle with his former nemesis Sub-Zero (as seen in the intro).

Though it also worth noting that Scorpion is a double subversion in that while he doesn't share any of the Forces of Darkness' goals and only wants an opportunity to kill Quan Chi, but he also has a personal agenda of [[RageAgainstTheHeavens taking out vengeance on the Elder gods]] (which coincidentally Shinnok also wants) [[JackassGenie for bringing back his fallen kin as undead abominations]].
