YMMV / Mortal Kombat: Conquest

  • 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.
