This also applies to most character endings:
** After the Universes are separated, Raiden learns that his powers have been affected. He loses them while under Earthrealm's sun. Quan Chi offers Raiden a glowing rock (Kryptonite) that will restore his power, in exchange for servitude. This makes Raiden the Mortal Kombat Universe's Bizarro Superman.
** Sub-Zero's ending depicts him operating solo as a force for good. He watches over a city wearing a new uniform that incorporates a cape. He has essentially become the Mortal Kombat Universe's Batman. The Lin Kuei however, do not take Sub-Zero's desertion lightly and plan to retaliate. This draws parallels to DC Comics League of Assassins as depicted in [[Film/BatmanBegins Batman Begins.]]
** In Kitana's ending, she and her Edenian Resistance inhabit Shang Tsung's Island, renaming it Argus Island. Essentially becoming the MK universe's Themyscira, with the Edenian Resistance (who appears to be made up mostly of females) becoming the MK Amazons.
** Inspired by Captain Marvel, the Elder Gods grant Liu Kang their power. All he would need to do to access them is shout [[MythologyGag "MORTAL]] [[Film/MortalKombat KOMBAT!"]]
** Jax subjects himself to heavy cybernetic conversion after he was badly injured in the conflict. He becomes the Mortal Kombat Universe Cyborg.
** Kano becomes truly insane and begins to don face paint, becoming the Mortal Kombat Universe Joker.
** During the merger, a Green Lantern died, and his ring chose Sonya as a successor. She becomes the Mortal Kombat Universe Green Lantern, though she is not seen wearing the Lantern Corp. uniform and she does not have access to a battery to recharge the ring. Bonus points for Sonya sharing a military background with Hal Jordan.
** Baraka and the Tarkatan's become far more bloodthirsty due to the Kombat Rage. They begin to mark their foreheads with blood and go on to dominate all the realms. This makes them the Mortal Kombat Universe Dominators.
** Despite being banished to the Phantom Zone, Shao Kahn grew in power and was able to break free, leading every single criminal ever banished who swore loyalty to him. He would go on to conquer the DC Universe, similar to General Zod.
** To combat future potential breaches to their Universe, Batman creates the OMAC (Outerworld Monitor and Containment) System. This mirrors the MK story line where Earthrealm formed the OIA (Outerworld Investigation Agency) after [[Videogame/MortalKombat3 Shao Kahn's invasion.]] This is also a reference to DC Comics OMAC.
** In Green Lantern's ending, Argus's Pyramid mysteriously appears on a distant planet. This causes Hal and the Corp. to become involved in a battle with the Sinestro Corp. to secure it, much like the plot of [[Videogame/MortalKombatArmageddon Armageddon.]]
** Lex Luthor would make contact with the MK Universe and form an alliance with Quan Chi. The narration describes their joining as a [[Videogame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Deadly Alliance.]]
** The Joker would somehow keep his power gained from the merging of the Universes and use it to take over Gotham City. He would host his own tournament where combatants must fight to the death, with the winner facing off against The Joker himself. This is essentially the entire plot of Mortal Kombat 1, with Joker as Shang Tsung.
** After the merger is reversed, Catwoman gains the ability to transform into a black panther at will, allowing her to perform an [[Videogame/MortalKombat3 animality.]]
** Deathstroke forms his own clan of assassins, outfitted in his own image and with himself as Grand Master. This makes him the DC Universe Lin Kuei and Shirai Ryu.
** In Darkseid's ending, Shang Tsung tries to take advantage of his imprisonment by stealing his soul. Darkseid instead turns the tables and reversed the soul drain and broke free. Now an old man again, Shang Tsung swears allegiance to Darkseid to save his life. Darkseid essentially becomes the new Shao Kahn, with Tsung being in the exact same position as prior to Mortal Kombat 2. They are even in similar poses as from that game. This also makes Tsung Darkseid's new Desaad.

The reception of this game was somewhat mixed, and marked the end of Midway Games. Interestingly enough, the VideoGame/MortalKombat franchise is now owned by WarnerBros, which [[LifeImitatesArt also owns DC Comics]]. So, who knows, they may give this series another shot if they feel so inclined.

There is also a comic adaptation that introduces both [[spoiler:Dark Kahn the BigBad]] and how his actions lead to the worlds merging.
