** In WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne, Hector let Boskov get Cod Commando. Hector told Boskov to finish him. Goro and Boskov's vocal effects were both done by Creator/FrankWelker.

*** Also counts due to Creator/FrankWelker's amazing vocal effects.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Although the series is among the biggest fighting game franchises, the series' heavy emphasis on gory violence and finishers could well turn off many people. There ''is'' a reason why the series gained attention in the news when it first debuted.

* {{Narm}}: If some fights are awesome, then the Liu Kang vs. Reptile fight scene is hilarious (especially when Liu Kang does the Bicycle Kick to finish Reptile, rotating him for 360 degrees in slow-motion).

* TheScrappy: Kurtis Stryker. There is a {{Retcon}} of him that's played with in ''Mortal Kombat 9'', which can be looked at as either badass, hilarious or even jarring. Originally, fan reaction to the Kurtis Stryker character was overwhelmingly negative, despite [[WordOfGod the creators']] belief that he would be considered one of the franchise's most popular characters. Regardless of the fandom's views of him, they still forged ahead with his character development with many efforts of making him cooler and winning him over with players. Well, in his ''Mortal Kombat 9'' Arcade Ladder ending, [[spoiler:he is considered ''wildly popular with fans AND a hero'', so much that he is given a parade in his honor, the key to the city [[note]][[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield and which city would ''that'' be, again?]][[/note]], The Congressional Medal of Honor, his own book regaling his heroic experience (titled ''I Was Doing My Job''), action figures [[note]]which is rather ironic in real-life, considering he is one of the only characters introduced before ''Mortal Kombat 4'' '''not''' to have his own action figure[[/note]], and a movie about his life, which he personally cancelled himself since he would NEVER allow Johnny Cage to play him in a movie. This all could be considered jarring considering it is a retelling/reboot of the original timeline of the games/the games themselves and that it may almost look like [[TrollingCreator the creators]] are trying to ''[[TakeThatAudience retcon the fans' original reactions to him.]]'']]

* FandomHeresy: Jade's ethnicity. Fellow Edenians Kitana, Sindel, Jerrod, Rain and (especially) Tanya should also be subject to this, but because Jade has noticeably darker skin, she tends to get the most attention of all during the arguments. Any time Jade is brought up in a discussion online, the speculation for her race/ethnicity ranges from Black, to Latina, to Indian, to Middle Eastern, to Southeast Asian...you get the idea. Most people tend to lean on "Black." Keep in mind that Edenians might not even have those kind of ethnic distinctions in the first place. Being from another realm outside of Earth, Jade's ethnic orgin cannot be that of African, Asian, Hispanic, European, or any other ethnic group within the planet. As official game material and story presents, she's simply ''Edenian''. However, this notion will not stop some fans bickering with other over pinpointing her "true" ethnic origins and background that will remain largely unresolved for the end of time. Tanya is also depicted to have darker skin that got inexplicably lighter in her ''MKX'' appearance, but even as Neatherrealm Studios acknowledged the issue fans had with Tanya and made her skin tone darker in following update patches, she oddly enough does not ignite heated arguments among fans over her ethnicity the way Jade does.

* DesignatedHero: In ''MKX'', Kenshi is a mellow, good-hearted veteran of the Special Forces, but there are a lot of hints that something sinister is bubbling beneath his surface. The most obvious clues are his Possessed variation and his Fatalities, the latter being horrific even by Mortal Kombat standards, but there are certain lines of dialogue that also speak to him having serious issues:
-->'''Takeda:''' Stop, dad!
-->'''Kenshi:''' I'm glad your mother isn't here to see this...
-->'''Takeda:''' ''[[RelativeButton Don't you talk about my mother!]]''

** Likewise, a section in the theme song where it sounds like Liu Kang and Johnny Cage are arguing and about to fight? Yeah, come VideoGame/MortalKombat9 where Liu Kang's dead and corrupted and Cage has become the reluctant champion of Raiden and Earthrealm?
