* FollowTheLeader: The game was designed to test ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4'''s brand-new Zeus engine. After ''War Gods'' was released, the dev team figured out what worked and what didn't, then used the knowledge to make ''Mortal Kombat 4'' better.

* 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.

* SomeDexterityRequired: The {{F|inishingMove}}atalites are very hard to pull in the arcade version. Thankfully, got simplified in the {{Nintendo 64}} and PlayStation ports.

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!

[[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.
