For the book series, see TheWarGods. For the trope, see WarGod. For the unrelated, yet succesful Sony franchise, see VideoGame/GodOfWar.

In 1996, MidwayGames was working on ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4''. Its development required Midway to create an arcade system for it -- which was codenamed Zeus -- but the company wanted a way to test their new hardware to ensure it could do the MortalKombat name justice (by avoid hitting the PolygonCeiling). Their "test" was ''War Gods''.

* {{Backstory}}: Each of the ten characters have their own backstories, and how they become immortals in process.



** ComboBreaker: You can apply combo breakers in this game too.
* [[HeroicSecondWind Comeback Victory]]: To achieve this, one should be seriously injured, and then retaliate and beat up your opponent the fast as possible.



* ExcusePlot: Very blatant as the game talks about how there are pieces of the ore shattered around the world, and all the playable characters have each piece and wants to fight each other so one can collect all the pieces and become the most powerful out of the rest of them. However, the ending says that the real objective, for all the characters, had been to stop Exxor from invading the earth. What?

* FinishingMove: Aside of the usual fatalities, all the characters can end the match with a powerful uppercut or an out-of-the-ring roundhouse kick to their opponents.



* ImmortalityInducer: Each playable fighter has a piece of the ore that makes them explicitly immortal. It does not quite explain how they get [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers super powers though...]]
* [[MostWonderfulSound/VideoGame Most Wonderful Sound]]: While Exxor, the announcer voice is really mediocre and can ruin the mood, the way he says ''[[FinishingMove "Faaaaaaataality!"]]'' is beyond awesome.

** If FridgeBrilliance is any indication, the ten characters are in an all-around war between each other, and they become immortals because of the pieces of ore. This might be a subversion.
* [[FlawlessVictory Perfect Victory]]
* PlayingWithFire: Anubis and Kabuki Jo.



* SNKBoss: Both Grox and Exxor are very hard bosses to defeat... good luck defeating them!
* TakenForGranite: Pagan's [=fatality=], where she releases Medusa's head and it turns the opponent to stone before EyeBeams blow them up. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Amusingly, the first part of the move doesn't work on Tak, since he's already a statue.]] He taunts the head until it blasts him to pieces.
* TechDemoGame: This was released mainly to see how the game play would perform for VideoGame/MortalKombat4.
* TheAnnouncer: Exxor, again.
* TheDragon: Grox is this to Exxor.

* '''Warhead''' ~ Formerly the US military's best operative, he was sent to a research center where the government was experimenting with the combination of nuclear weapons and the Ore. Just as he arrived, the research center exploded and covered him with fragments of the Ore, creating Warhead. In his {{F|inishingMove}}atality, he calls in an air strike, followed almost immediately by the opponent being nuked to death.
* '''Kabuki Jo''' ~ On the eve of a critical battle, a feared samurai discovered the Ore. Overwhelmed with power, he killed all his men in an uncontrolled fury. Ashamed by what he had done and outcast by society, he became Kabuki Jo and became determined to learn to control the Ore's power. In his {{F|inishingMove}}atality, he impales the opponent on his staff.
* '''Cy-5''' ~ In the year 2096, a group of scientists accidentally implant the Ore into an advanced cyborg codenamed Cy-5. The Ore's power gives Cy-5 consciousness, and it kills the scientists. It decides that, if the Ore gives consciousness, then more Ore equals more consciousness. With this goal in mind, it ruthlessly seeks out the other War Gods to claim their ore. In its {{F|inishingMove}}atality, it calls in a UFO, which shoots beams down at the opponent that melt them.
* '''Pagan''' ~ Pagan is a mistress of TheDarkArts. She gained ancient manuscripts showing the location of a temple where a fragment of the Ore was once worshipped. When she summoned the Ore, it only increased her desire to cause chaos and destruction. In her {{F|inishingMove}}atality, she summons a Medusa head, which first turns the opponent to stone, then shoots EyeBeams and destroys them.
* '''Maximus''' ~ Once a mighty gladiator from Ancient Rome, Maximus battled in a tournament at a festival celebrating the Ore to determine which of his masters would claim the Ore. He defeated his opponents, but the Ore's power overwhelmed him, and his masters were slain as well. He took the Ore for himself, and now he uses it to free the enslaved all over the world. In his {{F|inishingMove}}atality,, he chains the opponent to two columns, then chops off their legs.
* '''Anubis''' ~ In the Valley of Kings, a grave robber on the search for hidden treasure came across a hidden burial chamber. He stole the treasure within, unaware that a piece of the Ore had been placed there in case someone did try to steal the treasure. His body was destroyed, but his soul was reincarnated in the body of Anubis. In his {{F|inishingMove}}atality, he drops a spiked coffin on his opponent, which opens to reveal their mummified corpse.
* '''Voodoo''' ~ In the Caribbean, a witch doctor enslaved his village with his BlackMagic. In desperation, the villagers captured him and burned him alive. They threw his body into a forbidden swamp. Unbeknownst to them, a deposit of the Ore lay at the bottom of the swamp, which revived him as Voodoo. In his {{F|inishingMove}}atality, he pulls out a voodoo doll of his opponent and sticks a pin it in, which causes a giant pin to appear and stab the opponent in the stomach.
* '''Ahau Kin''' ~ Ahau Kin was an evil Aztec priest. He had a vision which revealed a fragment of the Ore lay at the bottom of his tribe's sacrificial well. He sent slave after slave diving to their deaths trying to claim it. Out of slaves but possessed with desire, he dove into the pit and claimed it himself, this time with success. In his {{F|inishingMove}}atality, he forces the opponent onto a pedestal and rips their heart out.
* '''Vallah''' ~ During a blizzard, a Viking warrior princess became separated from the battle. She took shelter in a nearby cave, where there was a mysterious green glow. She hacked through the ice until her sword struck the Ore. She was transformed into the goddess Vallah. In her {{F|inishingMove}}atality,, she pushes her opponent onto a bed of fire, where they are burned alive.
* '''Tak''' ~ In ancient times, there was a kingdom which worshipped the Ore. A rival kingdom fought a war to capture the Ore. Facing defeat, the king sealed the Ore in a stone idol, which came to life as Tak, the stone avenger of a lost civilization. In its {{F|inishingMove}}atality, it hits the opponent over the head three times, nailing them into the ground, then it kicks their head off.
