** 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?

* CrossoverShip: Humorously enough, there have been a pieces of fan are that have paired Sub-Zero with Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', as seen [[http://uekiodiny.deviantart.com/art/Sub-Zero-and-Elsa-X-526764630 here]].

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The fight against Reptile, added to the movie in the last minute. Without explanation, the CG critter Reptile fuses with a statue he was kicked inside to take an appearance similar as in the games, and have a long fight sequence with Liu Kang. It's never mentioned again. Supposedly, it's because test audiences wanted more fights, so they went back to do some re-shooting. It's also why Johnny disappears during the course of the fight: Linden Ashby wasn't actually there for the additional filming.

Also counts as a bit of a subversion because while the scene itself might seem out of place, the fight itself is praised by some fans as being the best in the film. There was also at least some foreshadowing for Reptile having a fight scene later on because early in the film, Shang Tsung is there to give Reptile orders to watch Kitana and keep her away from the main characters.

* FreudWasRight: In [[Film/MortalKombat the movie]], Scorpion's [[IconicItem Rope and Kunai]] is replaced with something similar but more "organic" in appearance.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Shang Tsung]] is an EvilSorcerer who drains the souls of his victims and seeks to destroy Earthrealm for [[GreaterScopeVillain Shao Kahn, Emperor of Outworld]]. Starting the film by killing hero Liu Kang's younger brother and [[YourSoulIsMine draining his soul]], Shang Tsung manipulates the heroes into joining Mortal Kombat so he can see a victory for his side and finally see humanity destroyed. During his tenure as tournament grandmaster, Shang Tsung frequently drains the souls of defeated fighters, even [[BadBoss still-living men from his own side]], that he absorbs into himself, the souls suffering [[AndIMustScream perpetual torment]]. When he realizes he may lose the tournament, Shang Tsung proves himself a [[DirtyCoward dishonorable coward]] by doing everything he can to avoid fighting Liu Kang and trying to challenge weaker fighters in his place before relying on [[ShapeshifterGuiltTrip using Liu Kang's brother's form]] to [[MindRape break him mentally]].

Added DiffLines:

* DancingBear: A lot of people more or less thought of Mortal Kombat as a rather common fighting game that was pretty much popular due to the sheer amounts of over-the-top violence - fortunately future games started moving past this.


Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: Fans generally are well aware that the video games [[DancingBear were 90s fighting games made famous just because of the blood and gore]], but the present fanbase will usually cite a few different games where it started to have more depth than just an exploitative fighting game.
