* DreamMatchGame: ''Trilogy'' is a rare American example. It follows the same basic story as ''Mortal Kombat 3'', but includes a few characters from the first two who were missing from the ''Ultimate'' roster (namely Johnny Cage, Baraka and Raiden, plus Goro and Kintaro in the [=PS1=] version), in addition to alternate versions of other characters. Since Johnny Cage was killed off in ''Mortal Kombat 3'', they try to explain his presence in ''Trilogy'' by claiming that he was temporarily brought back to life so he could assist in the efforts against Shao Kahn.

The ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' series was at the height of its of popularity in [[TheNineties the mid-90s]]; with the huge success of the first two games, another sequel was pretty much inevitable -- and in 1995, '''''Mortal Kombat 3''''' was launched. The game premiered in arcades before being ported to the UsefulNotes/SuperNES, UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, UsefulNotes/GameBoy, UsefulNotes/GameGear, UsefulNotes/PlayStation, and PC. Roughly half of the second game's cast returned (Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sub-Zero, Shang Tsung, and Jax), Sonya and Kano returned, and several new characters -- including {{Cyber Ninja}}s Smoke, Cyrax, and Sektor, as well as [[GasMaskMooks Kabal]], [[MultiArmedAndDangerous Sheeva]], [[BadassNative Nightwolf]], [[BadassNormal Kurtis Stryker]], and Kitana's resurrected mother [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Sindel]] -- were introduced.

* TakeThatAudience: Shao Kahn's taunt [[BreakingTheFourthWall to the player]] is an unmistakable "You Suck". The iPhone version made this an achievement for losing to him 3 times in a row, as well as one called [[NoYou "No, YOU Suck!"]] for beating him.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtifactTitle: According to the series canon, this is the first game where this applies, as there is no "Mortal Kombat" tournament being contested at all. The tournament would not return to canon until ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' (which itself is just a retelling of the original game anyway and the tournament is once again done away with once the timeline arrives to the point at which ''Mortal Kombat 3'' happens).

** It's implied that Earthrealm's victory over Shao Kahn undid all the massive soul-snatching, thus bringing the humans back to their due places (especially considering that basically 99.9999% of them were not kombatants).

* AwesomeButImpractical: Pulling off a Brutality requires the player to input a combo of usually 12 to 14 buttons, which differs from character to character, not to mention the possibility of accidentally dropping the opponent with one hit. The end result, however, is pretty jaw-dropping.
