[[WMG: Shinnok DID manipulate Kahn and the events of the 2011 reboot game]]
...BUT he had done so in the previous timeline as well. Listen closely to the dialogue between him and Quan Chi at the end of Story Mode - all we can infer from it is that they manipulated Kahn into thinking the Elder Gods would not intervene when he tried to merge the realms. Could Shinnok have traveled through time to make this happen like Raiden did? Yeah, but there's no reason to assume it, considering that in both timelines Kahn lost the tenth Earthrealm Tournament, hosted & lost the Outworld Tournament, and invaded Earth illegally with exactly the same catalyst - Sindel's resurrection. Could he have been persuaded by another source originally? Maybe - after all, the intro to ''[=MK3=]'' makes it sound as if Kahn has been preparing for this for thousands of years though we don't know how long exactly Kahn had been actually trying to get Earth. Shinnok's entire goal was to manipulate Kahn into getting rid of himself. Here's what COULD have happened, keeping in mind Quan Chi is the one who would make all this happen since he's Shinnok's agent here:
* Secretly enable Earth to win the first Tournament because they know what Kahn will do in response. How he would have done this I don't know. It's possible he just stayed out of the way here for the most part because he knew Liu Kang would win it regardless.
* Fulfilling Shinnok and Quan Chi's expectations, Kahn sets up a new illegal Tournament in Outworld. His plan here is to personally kill the Earthrealm contestants by any means necessary[[note]]which is what they're expecting, not necessarily that he'd host a fake contest to do so[[/note]] as stated in the intro to ''[=MK2=]'' - the best example of this is Kung Lao. He has no intention of actually following the Tournament's rules. However, this is also against the Elder Gods' will from top to bottom. Kahn would have been banished forever right here if Liu Kang had not intervened.
* Nevertheless, the demonic duo have one more trick up their sleeve - make Kahn believe the only thing keeping him out of Earthrealm is his late wife's curse, and that with this curse undone, he can merge the realms anyway, with no harmful consequences to him.
It's possible that something that concretely confirms that Shinnok engaged in time-travel exists in the comics or any of the endings from either game, but at the moment I haven't seen any evidence to suggest it. The major beats of both timelines are pretty much identical, and that was the case before Raiden monkeyed around with anything out of desperation.

to:

** Not quite. Sure, [[spoiler:Kahn ''did'' win Armageddon]], but [[spoiler:his ending states he merged everything with Outworld and then lost his mind because he was so bored out of it, with nothing to do]]. What actually happened obviously isn't that.

[[WMG: If ''Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe'' does get a sequel......]]
1. It will be no holds barred about killing the [[Franchise/DCUniverse DC]] characters\\
2. Anytime a character swears, it will be censored with a Toasty, just to mock how tame the first one was

** Jossed, Kahn's ''Deception'' bio states he had anticipated their attack and set a doppelgänger of himself on his throne as he himself went into hiding. There's no implication anywhere that Reiko had anything to do with this event.

* Jossed, while it ''is'' slightly more interactive this is just a bunch of QuickTimeEvents that don't impact the storyline.

Think it over carefully. After Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, when his [[DoAndroidsDream human soul was finally released from his robot programming]], the series simply forgets him until Deception, when he teams up with Noob Saibot. He suddenly has a new appearance: from the basic Lin Kuei robot to some sort of masked thing made of grey matter. We aren't told anything about how this radical makeover came about, neither are we told what he did before he met Noob. While the game tries to HandWave it as Nanomachines, there could be a whole creepier reason for it...

to:

** [[Literature/{{It}} Pennywise]]. He'll shapeshift like Shang Tsung. One of his fatalities will be the Deadlight. His ending will go something like this: "After defeating [LastBoss] he absorbed his dark powers, becoming a god himself. He wiped out the Elder Gods, and became ruler of the realms. He manipulated the adults to sacrifice a large number of children for him to feed. Pennywise will never go hungry again."

*** 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 UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube versions of ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Mortal Kombat Trilogy]]'' and ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'' respectively.
