** Though some cursory examination shows that it is Jiggle Physics done ''wrong'', as the 3D artists animated malleable flesh the same way cloth would be animated. This is very noticeable when you jump around with a female character: boobs aren't supposed to shake ''that'' way!

* SNKBoss: Moloch. Quan Chi and Shang Tsung can't match him.

** There ''are'' other factors, such as Nitara leading Reptile astray (according to his bio, Reptile knew of the Deadly Alliance's assassination attempt on Shao Kahn and would've been able to stop them had he not been sidetracked), but most of the blame can be traced back to the two Oni, as they prevented Scorpion from killing Quan Chi.

''Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance'' is the fifth fighting game installment in the ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' franchise. Notable for being the first game in the series to skip the arcades (getting a straight-to-console release instead) and for [[StoppedNumberingSequels dropping the numerals from the titles]] (although the logo does resemble a Roman numeral "V"). It was released for the [[NintendoGameCube GameCube]], PlayStation2, and {{Xbox}} in 2002.

* DevelopmentGag:
** Cyrax and Sektor were called "Mustard and Ketchup" during development. In ''Deadly Alliance'', Cyrax has a combo named Mustard and another named Ketchup in reference to this.
** Mokap is a tribute to Carlos Pesina, the guy who did some of the '''[[MotionCapture MO]]'''[[MotionCapture tion]] '''[[MotionCapture CAP]]'''[[MotionCapture ture]] for ''Deadly Alliance''.

** Moloch and Drahmin. After Scorpion makes a truce with the younger Sub-Zero and drags Quan Chi back to the Netherrealm (as seen in ''4''), he starts chasing the wizard throughout the lands, beating the white off of his ass as repayment for killing his family (this is shown in ''Deception''[='s=] Konquest mode). The two onis stop Scorpion, allowing Quan Chi to flee and discover Onaga's tomb. ''They are indirectly responsible for jumpstarting a WhamEpisode that has continued [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 to the present day]].''
