* ScrappyMechanic: Konquest Mode is your primary means of unlocking most of the valuable extra content like new characters, costumes and whatnot. Not too bad so far, but progressing through Konquest Mode also requires you to complete many, many {{Forced Tutorial}}s where you assume different characters and learn their moves-- which is something you can do on your own at any time in Training Mode.

* LawfulStupid: Yes, that's right, Shujinko. Just go with [[FlatCharacter Hotaru]] when he arrests you for breaking a crime that he had no way of knowing that he had broken, even if had known of the law; don't bother to just, I don't know, knock out the lone warrior who is [[SarcasmMode totally way harder than the various sorcerors and demons that you have faced]]. Nope, upholding his realm's ridiculous laws whilst even OUTSIDE of the realm [[spoiler:and rotting in jail for 30-odd years without any attempts to escape, despite having learned how to use telekinesis, set people on fire, and teleport]] is a way better plan and obviously far more important than completing that quest for the Elder Gods.

** Onaga happens to have quite a following. Despite his status as an SNKBoss for some, many liked his design, his stature, and his story. He was even [[http://www.trinidadcarnivaldiary.com/?p=2817 featured as a costume]] in Trinidad's 2009's Carnival celebrations!

** Some fans have this opinion in regard to Sub-Zero's "[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Shredder]]" outfit that he had in this game as being unfitting for him. [[BrokenBase Though on the other hand]], some fans would consider this NarmCharm in that Kuai Liang is the [[{{Badass}} type of person]] who is [[{{Pun}} cool]] enough to make what would otherwise be ridiculous [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome look stylishly awesome]].

** Say what you want about them, but Kira and Kobra do have their supporters (see BaseBreaker above), with shippers as part of those ranks. This actually is even given a degree of canonical support in ''Armageddon'', wherein both characters' endings show them expressing affection towards the other in some manner... only to end up being backstabbed for their troubles.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Shujinko's status as an UnwittingPawn makes it possible for him to be seen as TheWoobie, with shades of an IronWoobie. While easily manipulated, he was merely a guy who wanted to face Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat, [[AscendedFanboy actually got the chance to join that world]], [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone never meant for any of this to happen]], [[TheAtoner and works his butt off to rectify his mistake]].

** Ashrah is also this, to a lesser extent.
* FanPreferredCouple: Fans seem to be fond of pairing up Ashrah and Raiden despite [[CrackPairing no tangible connections existing between the two]] aside of being members of the Forces of Light. As noted on the Characters page, this is rooted in [[ThemePairing how similar the two appear to each other]], with many mistaking originally Ashrah not only as Raiden's DistaffCounterpart, but his wife.

* GameBreaker: A '''ton.''' The majority can be corralled under two things: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQftCLpsk_A moves that lead to unduckable throws,]] and moves that can be repeated ad-nauseum until the timer runs out. It's the core reason why this game was frowned upon by the professional fighting game community.

* ReplacementScrappy: Shujinko was the target of a lot of hate for replacing Liu Kang. He's [[TooDumbToLive terminally naive]] and stole the special moves and even ''appearances'' of the other characters during Konquest Mode. It doesn't help that Boon hamfisted him down the fandom's throat [[CreatorsPet by labeling him "the next generation Liu Kang"]] in an interview, or that his name ''literally means'' [[MeaningfulName "protagonist."]]

* WhatAnIdiot: You just have to facepalm when the Elder Gods Champion (the one before Scorpion) steps in to stop Shujinko and the natural reaction of our [[IdiotHero hero]] is to say "No, it's me!" and initiate a fight, not even thinking for one second how this guy reached the Nexus or why he would make such claims.
** Also Raiden blindly accepting Shujinko's story of being the Champion of the Elder Gods based on him "having the strength of ten fighters" without ever bothering to check with them to corroborate his story arguably also counts.
