A DirectToVideo {{OAV}} meant as a tie-in of sorts to Film/MortalKombat. The plots between cartoon and movie are more or less similar, with the same three protagonists - [[BruceLeeClone Liu Kang]], [[TheLancer Johnny Cage]] and [[ActionGirl Sonya Blade]] - but with far less tournament and far more backstory.

You can see the full movie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPusK1fh5yQ here]].

!!Trope examples include:
* BackToBackBadasses: This happens with the trio when they get ambushed by some Tarkatan {{Mooks}}.
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Every good guy does it.
* BatmanGambit: To try and prevent Earth's PowerTrio from reaching the island, Shang Tsung sics [[{{Antivillain}} Scorpion]] '''and''' [[AnIcePerson Sub Zero]] on them.
* CatchPhrase: Scorpion says "Get over here!", whilst Shang Tsung says [[ContinuityNod "Flawless Victory!" and "Finish him!"]] in one of the many, many flashbacks.
* CombinationAttack: Liu Kang and Johnny manage to pull one of these off in the MultiMookMelee.
* ConspicuousCGI: It may have been the 90s, the early age of CGI but damn do the 3D fight scenes look off.
** As does the CGI backgrounds for the 2D scenes.
* CostumeInertia: {{Inverted}} for the MultiMookMelee - Johnny Cage actually takes his CoolShades off... [[OffModel then they're back on again]].
* MisterExposition: Raiden. Literally 90% of his dialogue is just exposition.
* {{MST}}: WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} takes a crack at the entire video starting [[http://youtu.be/_W3QIua3BHA here]].
* NoEnding: Though the film claims that the live action film that this was released for will pick up where this left off... [[ContinuitySnarl Only it didn't]].
* SpeedEchoes: In the mook battle.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Much like the then-current console ports of the games, and the live-action movie, Raiden's name is misspelled as "Rayden" in the "Meet the Fighters" sequence.
* StockFootage: Quite a lot of the 2D animation is this.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPay: Raiden hilariously does this when explaining to the heroes Sub-Zero's background.
--> '''Raiden:''' Sub-Zero is part of the clan known as the Lin ''Cue''.[[note]]He pronounces the Kuei in Lin Kuei as the letter "Q" when it reality, it is pronounced "Kway".[[/note]]
* WholeEpisodeFlashback: The whole thing is pretty much [[ShockAndAwe Raiden]] [[HowWeGotHere explaining the events of previous Mortal Kombat tournaments]] over the aforementioned CGI.
