* FakeNationality: The Great Kung Lao, a Chinese character, is played by Paolo Montalban, a Filipino.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Fred "[[Wrestling/{{WCW}} The Shockmaster]]" Ottman's character is killed by Shang Tsung in the Cobalt mines in the first episode.
** Chris Cassamassa ([[WMACMasters Red Dragon]]) reprises his role as Scorpion by virtue of ''Film/MortalKombat''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Siro's ex-fiancÚ / sister-in-law is played by none other than ''Creator/EvaMendes''.
* TalkingToHimself: Jeffery Meek played both Raiden and Shao Khan.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A second season, which was ScrewedByTheNetwork, that would have connected the show to ''Film/MortalKombat''. WordOfGod says that the EverybodyDies ending would have been [[CosmicRetcon undone]] by the Elder Gods, who would have also punished Shao Khan by forbidding him from taking part of Mortal Kombat for 500 years. However, Shang Tsung would have won back Shao Khan's favor by enlisting Goro and representing Outworld in the Mortal Kombat tournament in his stead. Meanwhile, Taja and Siro would die of old age and Kung Lao would be killed in Mortal Kombat by Goro after seven days of fighting. Outworld would spend the next 500 years dominating the tournaments while Raiden searched for a new champion who could save Earthrealm.[[http://www.mksecrets.net/index.php?section=mkc&lang=eng&contentID=5900&title=Mortal-Kombat-Conquest-Ending-and-Story-Timeline]]
