* DesignatedHero\WhatAnIdiot: Pointed out by Phelous in his reviews of the series, some of the actions done by the main trio are either or both of these tropes. For example, Siro trusting two women he just met with the crucial task of blowing up a Kreeya hive....full of babies.
* HarsherInHindsight: The ending to the show, where [[spoiler:Shao Kahn kills everyone]], is oddly prescient of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', which ends with [[spoiler:Shao Kahn killing ''almost'' everyone]]. In both cases, Raiden unwittingly caused the destruction.
* InformedWrongness: As WebVideo/{{Phelous}} pointed out in the episode ''Thicker Than Blood,'' Siro had every right to be cold towards his ex-fiancée (played by Creator/EvaMendes, [[RetroactiveRecognition of all people]]) since she cruelly left him for his brother. However, everyone acts like Siro is being the JerkAss in the situation. Phelous usually makes Siro out to be a {{Jerkass}} IdiotHero, so the fact that even he is siding with Siro here says a lot.
* IronWoobie: Great Kung Lao.
* MemeticMutation: Shao Kahn's speech at the end of the final episode has been oft-quoted on ''Mortal Kombat'' message boards, especially in the wake of ''9''.
