Trivia: Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero

  • Fan Nickname:
    • Some fans call the God of Earth as "Ohona", though it's unknown where the name came from, or "Chijin", the name of the Japanese god of earth.
    • For the same reasons as above, "Kumari" or "Suijin" for the Water God. Due to one fan-made sprite comic, he's also occasionally called O'Shin.
    • "Hinoka" or "Kajin" for the Fire God.
    • For a long time due to it not having an official name in this game or any other until Mortal Kombat X, Shinnok's Corrupted form had been called "Beast Shinnok" or "Demon Shinnok".
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • John Turk is Sub-Zero's performer here and in 3. In that game, he also performed: *deep breath* Shang Tsung and all of the masked ninjas (thanks to palette swapping).
    • Sal Divita, who performed in 3 as Nightwolf, Sektor, Cyrax and Smoke, plays Scorpion.
    • Richard Divizio, Kano's and Kabal's performer in 3, plays Quan Chi and Shang Tsung.
    • Lia Montelongo, Sindel's performer in 3, plays Sareena.
    • Tony Marquez, Kung Lao's performer in 3, plays Fujin.
    • Brian Glynn, Shao Kahn's performer in 2 and 3, plays the Water God.
    • Kerri Hoskins, Sonya's performer in the Mortal Kombat 3 games, plays Kia.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • On at least three occasions did Sareena not make the final roster cut: 4 (Fujin took her place), Deadly Alliance (she did make it into the Tournament Edition for GBA, but her moveset borrowed from characters not present in the game), and Deception.
    • Sareena's beta name was Eia.
    • Deception features one unlockable movie depicting a scene cut from the original game where Sub-Zero returns to the Lin Kuei temple, having failed his mission. The Grandmaster promptly executes him as a result. The animation for Sub-Zero writhing in pain was instead used for him teleporting to different areas of the Temple of Elements.
    Sub-Zero: "Grandmaster, in failing my mission, I have dishonored the Lin Kuei."
    Grandmaster: "An unfortunate event. Your incompetence will cost our clan dearly. Now, you will pay with your life!"
