The story begins with Earthrealm's warriors battling for their lives against Outworld's forces on Shang Tsung's island fortress. Liu Kang eventually confronts the sorcerer and gains the upper hand against him, only for Goro to enter the fray. While the heroes are distracted by this new threat, Shang Tsung is able to open a portal to outworld and retreats with his evil allies as the fortress [[LoadBearingBoss begins to crumble]] around them. Escaping, Liu Kang and Kung Lao find the Wu Shu Academy under attack from Baraka and his Tarkatans. Defeating them the duo decide to meet the threat head on, despite the odds, and battle through Outworld itself to face Shao Kahn in person.

Added DiffLines:

* DemonicSpiders: Shadow Priests. They "always" appear in pairs, can call down [[ShockAndAwe lightning]], [[TeleportSpam teleport]], shoot energy bolts at you, grab you to drain your health, and, if you leave them alone, they "will" summon [[GoddamnedBats Tarkatans]] to fight you, and [[StatusBuff buff]] any other enemy around. Luckily, they aren't any more durable than the other enemies, so take them out first.


Added DiffLines:

* GoddamnedBats: Tarkatans show up in almost every stage once they're introduced. On their own they aren't any harder than any other mook, but they tend to come in groups.

* ButThouMust: In the battle against Kitana, Mileena, and Jade, it doesn't matter which one you hit with the Fatality stunner, [[spoiler: Jade]] is always the one killed.



* EyeScream: After disabling Kitana with a punch to the face, Liu Kang kills [[spoiler: Jade]] by stabbing her in the eyes with Mileena's sai. Yes, it was both completely unnecessary and [[BloodyHilarious completely hilarious]].

* CanonDiscontinuity: Subverted. ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' doesn't make any direct references to Shaolin Monks in the story, aside of a small nod, and seems to use the "original" versions of MK1 and MK2's stories instead, but several of the Challenge Tower missions are directly based on parts of the game.

** The game also adopted Kung Lao's outfit here as his standard, and a minor plot point [[spoiler:of him sneaking into the first tournament disguised as a guard]].



* {{Fauxshadowing}}: Raiden's warning that "Outworld changes a person. The next time you see Sonya Blade, she may not be a friend"? Nothing comes of it. And this is despite the LetsYouAndHimFight nature of fighting games. [[spoiler: Possibly Justified, as "Raiden" is actually Shang Tsung trying to sow seeds of distrust in the monks.]]

** ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' does place Kung Lao at the first tournament, in the same disguise, but that's about it. The time travel of the later game changes events before the plot of Shaolin Monks would have occurred, so it can't be verified one way or the other.
