* HilariousInHindsight: Chris Cassamassa, a.k.a. Red Dragon, played Scorpion in the first ''Film/MortalKombat'' movie, way before an Earthrealm faction called Red Dragon made [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance their official appearance]] in the games proper.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[spoiler: Had Tsunami truly joined Jukido? Or was he only pretending to join to gain their trust, find out what their true plan was, and try to put a stop to it?]]

* Narm: It's got it in spades. The over-the-top costumes (particularly Hakim "The Machine" Alston's {{ComicBook/Cyborg}} cosplay entrance gear) and presentation as a real-life video game may draw laughter even from folks who regularly watched the show as kids. Also, most of the Masters were cast for their martial arts talent, not their acting ability, and it shows at times.

* GrowingTheBeard: The Second Season

* GrowingTheBeard: The Second SeasonSeason. The addition of a plot besides just spin-kicking towards a prize helped give the show focus. The acting also improved, which helped sell that what was happening behind the scenes was important

** NarmCharm: That being said, that presentation and atmosphere helped make WMAC Masters unique, sometimes sticking in your memory long after you've forgotten it's name, and even to people finding it on the net the show has a goofy charm that a lot of kid's shows from the time have.

* LighterAndSofter: Arguably this to the UFC, which at the time was still in its "There are no rules!" phase.

* SeinfeldisUnfunny: All the fights look ridiculously fake to modern viewers due to the popularity of mixed martial arts (which was only in its genesis when the show debuted) making it very difficult to buy the backstory of the WMAC being a legitimate competition. Back then however, MMA was nowhere near as prevalent and the fights, while choreographed, didn't come across nearly as phony.

* SeinfeldisUnfunny: While the show always looked choreographed even when new, all the fights look ridiculously fake to the layman due to the popularity of mixed martial arts (which was only in its genesis when the show debuted). This is made evident by the framing element of a legitimate competition, rather than a story driven show. Back then however, the concept of martial arts masters fighting each other was still a fresh idea to the general public.
