** 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's as depicted in [[Film/BatmanBegins Batman Begins.]]

** Green Lantern and the Corp. become involved in a battle with the Sinestro Corp. to claim the power from Argus's pyramid. Basically the plot of [[Videogame/MortalKombatArmageddon Armageddon.]]

** In Green Lantern 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 claim the power from Argus's pyramid. Basically secure it, much like the plot of [[Videogame/MortalKombatArmageddon Armageddon.]]


Added DiffLines:

** 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.]]


Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** 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.

** 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.


Added DiffLines:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
** 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.
** 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.

This also applies to some 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 cap. He has essentially become the Mortal Kombat Universe's Batman.


Added DiffLines:

** 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!"]]

* IAmNotShazam: Literal example, as the game's official website labeled Captain Marvel as "Shazam", and unlike [[VideoGame/SoulSeries similar examples]] of a game's official website not being accurate, the announcer actually said "Shazam" when you clicked on Captain Marvel's bio

** Sub-Zero and Batman are the loners. To strengthen that comparison, look at Sub-Zero during most of the events the MK series. Especially Deadly Alliance and Deception. He even had his own "Robin" for a brief time.

** Sonya and Catwoman are different as they don't actually share character traits. Both operate on opposite sides of the law. But for that reason they share a dynamic as Catwoman could simply fill the role of a female Kano. Not murderous, but certainly self-serving and capable of betraying allies for her own purposes.

** Still unexplained, however, is that the fact that ordinary humans such as Jax or even Joker are capable of killing Superman without the use of magic or Kryptonite

** One of the most notable examples is a scene where Superman is attacked by Scorpion; with one kick, the ninja sends Supes soaring several city blocks away, and when he gets up he still has Scorpion's burning footprint on his chest. He quickly realizes that not only are his powers fluctuating, this other guy is magic, one of the few things that can hurt Superman.

* SequelHook: Many endings in the Arcade Mode suggest a sequel, such as [[spoiler:Lex Luthor forming a [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Deadly Alliance]] with Quan Chi in his ending, Liu Kang and The Flash agreeing to warn each other when another interdimensional hole is opened in Kang's ending, and finding said hole later, the Green Lantern Corps trying to prevent Sinestro from obtaining the power of the Pyramid of Argus, and Batman having installed a new system in the Batcave in order to detect interdimensional rifts (called [[ComicBook/{{OMAC}} Outerworld Monitor and Auto-Containment, funnily enough.]]) Oh, and Sonya Blade gets a Green Lantern ring. [[SuperpowersForADay But no lantern]].]]
** [[spoiler:In story mode, Shao Kahn is banished to the Phantom Zone, and Darkseid to the Netherrealm. In their arcade mode endings, Shao Kahn escapes the Phantom Zone with an army of Kryptonian supervillains, and Darkseid escapes the Netherrealm and forces Shang Tsung into his service (making him his new Desaad), effectively having the {{Big Bad}}s trade places with one another.]]
