YMMV: Mortal Kombat: Conquest
- Canon Sue: The episode Twisted Truths introduced Tomas, a prodigiously-skilled fighter who was trained to fight in the Mortal Kombat tournament that was won by Kung Lao, but prevented from competing by an avalanche which destroyed his village. Every female character instantaneously swoons over him, and Taja falls in love with him. He wins a sparring match with Siro by breaking his arm within seconds - by accident. Kung Lao, on the other hand, regards him with suspicion and hostility and is easily fooled by Shao Kahn's plot to frame him for murder. Shao Kahn also explicitly states that Tomas is a better fighter than Kung Lao, and sure enough, when they finally clash at the end of the episode, Tomas is clearly winning before before being distracted long enough for Kung Lao to gain the upper hand. At the end of the episode, Tomas sacrifices his life to save Kung Lao from an assassin.
- Designated Hero\What an Idiot: 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.
- Harsher in Hindsight: The ending to the show, where Shao Kahn kills everyone, is oddly prescient of Mortal Kombat 9, which ends with Shao Kahn killing almost everyone. In both cases, Raiden unwittingly caused the destruction.
- Informed Wrongness: As Phelous pointed out in the episode Thicker Than Blood, Siro had every right to be cold towards his ex-fiancée (played by Eva Mendes, of all people) since she cruelly left him for his brother. However, everyone acts like Siro is being the Jerk Ass in the situation. Phelous usually makes Siro out to be a Jerkass Idiot Hero, so the fact that even he is siding with Siro here says a lot.
- Iron Woobie: Great Kung Lao.
- Memetic Mutation: 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.
