Funny / Mortal Kombat

Games with their own pages:

  • Raiden's ending in the original game doubles as Hilarious in Hindsight:
    "Raiden's victory comes as no surprise to him. He was never impressed by Shang Tsung's inferior sorcery, Goro's brute force, or the challenge of the other contestants. He quickly becomes bored with his mortal competition and soon invites other gods to participate in the contest. The ensuing battles rage on for years. And the wars result in our world's final destruction. Have a nice day."
  • Some of the Friendships in II, which are all followed by Shao Kahn's bewildered "Friendship?!"
  • Also from II: Shao and Kintaro wreck the Acclaim logo.
  • In 2 and 3, when Noob Saibot won a round, the announcer (Kahn) didn't actually say his name. Instead, for 2, he would say, "Feel the power of" followed by a scream of "Toasty!"note  For 3, he would say, "It's official: you suck."
    • It doesn't end there: in Mortal Kombat Komplete, his fatality is described as thus:
    Noob Saibot plays tug of war for keeps.
  • The gibberish is absolutely hilarious.
    Raiden: I NEED MY MONEY!!
  • The SNES version of the first game has Sonya with a masculine scream when you uppercut her into the Pit Bottom.
  • Johnny Cage's textbook-perfect Groin Attack towards Goro, especially since upon impact, the camera cut right to Goro's eyes dilating as he moaned in pain.
    • Raiden then cheers and slaps another spectator on the back... then sheepishly apologizes. Made even funnier by the fact that the spectator is one of Shang Tsung's Mooks.
      • Even funnier is the mook's look of confusion when Raiden apologizes.
    • The twins mooks who seem to be a little HoYay for Goro.
    • "Those were $500 sunglasses, asshole!"
    • Even funnier when Johnny evades Goro as he nurses his own hand in pain. Balls of Steel indeed.
    "Damn! That hurt!"
  • Less so but still good, Cage leaves an autographed photo after defeating Scorpion as a nod to his Friendship from the games.
  • Johnny Cage meets Liu Kang for the first time. He tries to pay him to carry his luggage onboard the ship, thinking he's some valet. Liu Kang takes the money, grabs a suitcase, walks over to the edge of the water, drops it in, and walks off.
    Johnny Cage: (watching his luggage sink) Huh. Thank God I didn't ask him to park the car.
  • The comic spectacle of Johnny Cage carrying more bags than he knows what to do with onto the island, first falling over onto the beach, then the "no more steps" line, then Johnny falling over atop a large staircase and Liu asking "Do you need help with those?"
    • Notice that Cage has fewer and fewer suitcases with each scene, until, by the time he reaches the top, he's down to just one.
  • When the Power Trio are leaving Shang Tsung's throne room and are trying to find Kitana, Cage is certain she went down a certain passageway (despite the still intact, hallway-wide spider webs). The passageway ends up leading them right back into the throne room.
    Johnny Cage: I can smell her perfume.
    Liu Kang: I don't smell anything!
    (cut to them winding up back where they started, Sonya annoyed while Johnny looks confused)
    Sonya Blade: I smell something...bullshit.
    • Followed by Cage mockingly mimicking her.
    • Immediately following this scene, the three are ambushed by a group of mooks. After handily fighting them off and engaging in some post-combat banter, they get a visit from Raiden:
      Raiden: *mocking slow clap* Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Now why don't you tell me what you plan to do about...them?
      ''The three turn around... and realise there is a huge army of mooks behind them.
      • The group prepares to fight, but Raiden stops the mooks with a single gesture and a calmly intoned threat, before guiding them out. Cage can't help but toss one last quip as he goes.
        Johnny Cage: You guys are lucky he stopped us.
  • "I'm in a hostile environment, I'm completely unprepared, I'm surrounded by people who probably wanna kick my ass... it's like being back in high school!"
  • When Liu Kang returns to his temple and meets with his fellow monks and Raiden again, Liu doesn't show the proper etiquette towards Raiden, quickly prompting Liu Kang's Abbot and mentor figure to defend Liu, telling Raiden that too much television in America has rotted Liu Kang's mind.
  • "The fate of billions will depend upon you. Heh heh heh heh... sorry."
  • Johnny Cage, after seeing Sub-Zero kill an opponent by freezing him and causing him to shatter:
  • Johnny gets a Cowardly Sidekick moment when the three heroes see a silhouette of Goro ahead:
    Johnny: Sonya... you go on ahead. Find out what that was. Liu and I will wait right here.
    • Of course, Sonya was being very reckless; Johnny was half snarking her for it.
  • This exchange after Sonya doggedly goes after Shang Tsung and Kano:
    Johnny: You have to admire her; when she sets her mind on something...
    Liu Kang: It's not her mind you're admiring. *follows her*
    Johnny: *shrug* It's true.

  • Dan Forden doing a "Toasty!" in real life. Complete with Ed Boon promptly turning away from the camera while laughing.
    • Another one here during the Mortal Kombat X livestream, with the streamers declaring they'll make a .gif out of the moment.
