*** Alexander the Great didn't name people after himself directly, [[{{Egopolis}} but how many cities did he name after himself again?]] One must figure that someone in at least one of those cities at some point identified themselves as a citizen of that city. Also, Bolivia is named after Simón Bolívar, so when one refers to "Bolivian people", they're only one step from just that with Bolívar. And I'm sure there are other examples.

* Although Ed himself [[http://twitter.com/#!/noobde/status/71667954705641472 said]] in a twit that there were no plans for a PC version, he later said in [[http://twitter.com/#!/noobde/status/83981762597879808 another]] twit that a final decision wasn't made, which implies that in a future a PC port/version may happen. Additional rumours said that the game could be distributed via {{Steam}}, and, more importantly, that the PC version would obtain it's own exclusive character. In this remote case, who might be the exclusive character? VideoGame/DukeNukem? [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]? [[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Jim Raynor, Sarah Kerrigan]]? [[VideoGame/WarcraftIII Arthas Menethil]]?

[[WMG: The Rules]] We need to establish how this whole furshlugginer tournament is set up. From the sound of things: *One realm (challenger) may formally lay claim to another (challenged) once per generation. In the second act of MK9 it's implied that if you're challenged in one generation, you can still challenge someone in the same generation (Shao goads Earth into challenging him). If the Challenger can nab ten consecutive victories, they can merge both realms. *Challenger has to play host. Presumably Shang gets to place it in Earthrealm because he actually owns that island through his Earthrealm contacts. *The main tournament consists of matches between the Challenger and the Challenged, but representatives of other realms can join in for their own reasons- in the first act of MK9, Netherrealm (and maybe the Lin Kuei as independents) join in. While on the tournament's premises, anyone present may challenge anyone else (actually a pretty clever way of eliminating enemy champions- set someone else on them). *The overall victor apparently has to defeat the Challenger himself (Shang) and the previous champion (Goro) before actual victory. *Apparently diplomatic figures can't directly challenge anyone, since Raiden couldn't just pick off all of Shang's guys. *Still have no idea how Shang can declare two-on-one fights. Just chalk that one up to GameplayAndStorySegregation.

to:
*Confirmed, the reconcile and fight together.

to:
* Sort of confirmed. That character, Kotal Khan, is from Osh-Tekk, presumably the Mesoamerica-flavored realm, but it's been merged with Outworld for who knows how long.

** If the original timeline is anything to go by, that seems to be the case. Especially considering that Raiden's CosmicRetcon only went as far as the first tournament, and one thing in Quan Chi's ending in ''[=MK4=]'' was confirmed to be canon: he held the ''real'' Amulet of Shinnok with himself while giving Shinnok a copy

So there's a Deva/God/Heaven one (probably the leader), a Human/Idealistic one, a Animal/Brutality one, a Hungry Ghost/Preta/Hunger one and a Naraka/Hell one(that could be Shinnok).

*** In the case of ''9'' getting a WiiU version, it wouldn't be strange if she was a Nintendo-exclusive character, seeing as she only appeared in the Nintendo64 and NintendoGameCube versions of ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Mortal Kombat Trilogy]]'' and ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'' respectively.

** No matter how you look into it, that voice can't seriously sound like Liu Kang. Even if you haven't heard him talk aside from the FunnyBruceLeeNoises, that doesn't even fit him.

* Considering that the two are friends and appear to have lived for about the same period of time, it'd be more likely that the two are brothers, doubly so if you're going by [[JapanMythology the myths the characters are based off of]]. IIRC, the official strategy guide for ''4'' stated that they're siblings, but whether or not this is true has been neither verified nor debunked in canon.

Remember Mortal Kombat Conquest. The TV series followed the adventures of the Great Kung Lao after his victory in Mortal Kombat. Now, we all know that in the games the Great Kung Lao died fighting Goro in the next tournament, an event that the series seemed to be foreshadowing in places. But that's not how the series ended. It actually ended much like MK9 began, with all the heroes dead and Shao Kahn gloating over the defeated Raiden. What if...Raiden used those moments to send a message back in time, warning himself of Kahn's assassination attempt, and changing history to the way it is in the games.
