* AntiClimaxBoss: Shinnok turns into this when you realize you can just jump over him when he attacks and then freeze him, allowing you to easily take his amulet, then run away from his OneWingedAngel. If you want to actually defeat him, [[ThatOneBoss its a different story]].



* GoddamnedBoss: Shinnok's first form. You can only hit him right when he attacks or taunts you, otherwise your attacks will be blocked by his DeflectorShields, which also hurt you if you touch him. And if you take too long reaching him after freezing him, you have to freeze him again. If you freeze him while his shield is up, it will stay up, leading you to take damage when you try to jump over it.



** Shinnok can also be this if you want to actually defeat him rather than just stealing his amulet.

** Shinnok can also be this if you want to actually defeat him rather than just stealing his amulet. At first he fires projectiles which don't do a lot of damage on their own, but the number he launches racks up damage very quickly. He is also hard to even hit since when he's no attacking his DeflectorShields will block all of your attack and damage you if you touch it. Taking his amulet causes him to break out his OneWingedAngel where he becomes an AdvancingBossOfDoom that kills you in three hits, but his long reach means if he hits you once you get hit as soon as you get back up, meaning that getting near him in instant death. The game expects you run away at this point so the portals that would normally take you to the opposite ends of the stage will take to the ending. This means the only reliable way to beat him is spam the Polar Blast and hope you have enough restorative items to use it enough to beat him before he reaches you.

* {{Narm}}: The [=FMVs=]... are kind of laughable.

* {{Narm}}: The [=FMVs=]... are kind of laughable. laughable, one example being the cutscenes that play whenever Sub-Zero falls down a bottomless pit. They are quite overdramatic and look very cheap, even using the exact same animation.

* VindicatedByHistory: While this game still has plenty of flaws as noted above, it is at least something of [[CultClassic Cult Class-]]... er, "Kult Klassic" that has contributed to the mythos of the series (Details concerning the Netherrealm including [[SatanicArchetype Shinnok]], [[DivineConflict his past with the other Elder gods]], and his [[MacGuffin Sacred Amulet]]), added new characters (Fujin and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Sareena]]), and [[CanonImmigrant introduced]] Quan Chi, who originally debuted in WesternAnimation/MortalKombatDefendersOfTheRealm, as a canonical character. The same could not be said for Videogame/MortalKombatSpecialForces which has [[CanonDiscontinuity been virtually retconed out]].

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: After Bi Han returns with Shinnok's Amulet, he asks Raiden about what Quan Chi meant by him being tainted with evil what that meant for his future. The thunder god told him that "But only you can control your destiny. Not even the gods can alter your chosen path in life." These words would likely haunt Raiden in light of what happened in Videogame/MortalKombat9 in which he sent a message to himself into the past to alter the timeline in order to thwart Shao Kahn's victory in the Battle of Armageddon and ended up unwittingly bringing about several heroes' death in the process.

** Sareena, who is most likely the best example of this next to [[CanonImmigrant Quan Chi]]. Despite debuting in an unpopular spinoff, there was quite a bit of fan interest to see her return for future games. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen After several attempts]] to make it into the series proper, she's finally made playable in ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon Armageddon]]'', where she proves to be a [[ShipTease valuable]] [[BattleCouple ally]] of Younger Sub-Zero and is made into a top-tier character.

* Narm: The FMVS... are kind of laughable.
* OlderThanTheyThink: The MortalKombat fighting engine was first moved to an adventure game by ''Film/BatmanForever'' for the Super Nintendo. As you might guess, the game was full of ScrappyMechanic like here.

* ThatOneBoss: Wind God Fujin is a pain to everybody. To make it worse when he is weakened he tries a Kamikaze technique and figuring out how to avoid it takes some time.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: At one point in the game, Sub-Zero fights a [[DinosaursAreDragons fire-breathing dinosaur.]] Where did it come from? Not really explained. It was never brought up earlier, and it's never shown or mentioned after it's killed.
