** Sindel in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' after [[CurbStompBattle casually killing off]] Kurtis Stryker, Jax, Cyborg Sub-Zero, Smoke, Jade, Kitana, and Kabal, forcing Nightwolf into a TakingYouWithMe gambit, and leaving a battered Johnny Cage, Raiden and Sonya the only survivors.

** Sindel in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' after [[CurbStompBattle casually killing off]] Kurtis Stryker, Jax, Cyborg Sub-Zero, Smoke, Jade, Kitana, and Kabal, forcing Nightwolf into a TakingYouWithMe gambit, and leaving a battered Johnny Cage, Raiden and Sonya the only survivors. Because of this, fans tend to forget that had Shao Kahn not decide to put down his kiddy glove and shove the souls collected in Shang Tsung to empower her and leading to the aforementioned mass murder [[note]]in which the method was Shao Kahn's idea, Sindel merely suggests taking on the frontline herself, not specifying the method, and in addition, Shao Kahn's decision was due to Raiden's timeline interference that led to Motaro's early death[[/note]], Sindel would usually turn out like she did in the original timeline, being actually a noble queen and a force of good that would cut ties with Shao Kahn once she got back to her senses.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Shang Tsung]] is an Evil Sorcerer 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 using Liu Kang's brother's form to [[MindRape break him mentally]].

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene:
** Johnny's fight with Goro, particularly the GroinAttack and the "$500 Sunglasses" one-liner.
** Liu's fight with Reptile.


Added DiffLines:

*** This was mostly due to Reptile being added at the last minute because test audiences felt like there weren't enough fight scenes. Ultimately, that paid off since Liu Kang's fight with Reptile was considered one of the best parts of the movie.

* SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: The satisfying *TWHACK* of a well-placed uppercut, "FINISH HIM!!", Scorpion's "GET OVER HERE!", and of kourse, "FATALITY."

* EvilIsCool: The more villainous or morally questionable characters tend to get many fans with Shao Kahn, Kano, Bi-Han (especially as Noob Saibot) and Goro being the most notable.

Likewise, those who find Liu Kang actually a bland or boring protagonist is usually more pleased and liking him better when he went full on evil in ''X''.

** Trevor Goddard as Kano. His performance was generally well received by fans and even the creators of the games loved his portayal so much Kano was actually changed from a Japanese-American with little character to an Australian-born thug.

* HamAndCheese: Lambert and Ashby seemed to know ''exactly'' what kind of film they signed on for and spent the entire time tossing the comedy ball back and forth.

** His ending in MK4 has him walking out on stage to accept a movie award, only to be booed by the audience and chased away after they start throwing stuff at him.

** [[SubvertedTrope Tremor is actually a big fan of Johnny Cage, and unironically loves his movies.]]
