Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Kung Lao endlessly teasing Liu Kang about his attraction to Kitana.


Added DiffLines:

* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: A lot of the dialogue in this game is Kung Lao mocking Liu Kang's attraction to Kitana and an exasperated Liu protesting that Kitana isn't his girlfriend. Its almsot to the point that "Kitana is not my girlfriend!" becomes Liu's CatchPhrase.

* AdaptationalJerkAss: The same Kung Lao who was once a humble warrior who did not seek the spotlight is now an honour obsessed, ill-tempered JerkJock who endlessly teases Liu Kang about [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Kitana]], not to mention buying into Shang Tsung's scheme.



* BonusBoss: The player has the option of fighting Kano before leaving to fight Shao Kahn. Doing so results in Kano's death & Jax arriving to take Sonya back to Earthrealm; otherwise they remain in the background of the arena. Ermac can also be challenged in the Warrior Shrine, and a return trip to the Living Forest can get you a second fight with Mileena.

Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: Shang Tsung.
* BigBadWannabe: Shang Tsung, much like the main series. [[spoiler: His entire plan to overthrow Shao Kahn. His plan never gets very far as he's killed by Liu Kang and Kung Lao before he has the chance to even try, implying he didn't have a chance of success regardless.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EverythingIsBetterWithSpinning: Shao Kahn has this attack with his hammer. The player won't be thinking this is "better" however, it has a lot of reach, if the player gets hit once, they will get stunned and hit again by the rest of the attack.

* PullARabbitOutOfMyHat: Two of Kung Lao's Fatalities feature him doing this and then offering the rabbit to his victim. The first has the victim accept the rabbit, which results in them [[KillerRabbit getting mauled by it]]. The second has the victim reject the rabbit, which results in Kung Lao ''[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown mercilessly beating them to death]] '''[[GrievousHarmWithABody with]]''' [[GrievousHarmWithABody the poor rabbit]]''.

** BonusBoss [[spoiler:Ermac]]'s inclusion is likely a reference to his origins as a rumored secret character in the first game.

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.
