YMMV: War Gods
  • Awesome Music
  • Broken Base/Base Breaker: Kabuki Jo, either you like him for his backstory (atoning for the slaughter of his own men) or hate him due to him for being a ridiculous satire to the kabuki.
  • Creepy Awesome: Voodoo.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Voodoo, while belonging to a lesser known game like this, he gained a lot of a solid fanbase.
    • Anubis counts too!
  • Evil Is Cool: Ahau Kin and Voodoo.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Pagan.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Pagan's Medusa Fatality would be seen again, but this time in Mortal Kombat 9, by Kratos (as an added bonus, consider the fact that it's wielded by a character who kills Gods, which is exactly what the original did since all of the characters are Gods!)
    • Speaking of Mortal Kombat 9, it seems that Jax finally gained Tak's Football Kick Fatality too.
  • Love It or Hate It: Has a few fan following, but also detractors at the same time.
  • Narm: From its kitchen-sink character designs to its odd combination of digitized sprites in a 3D game (making the characters resemble paper cutouts when the camera shifts) to its desperation to be a dark game (the announcer goes more over the top with "FATALITY!" than any MK game).
  • Needs More Love: This game is currently underrated for those who see it as a So Bad, It's Good at its best.
  • Obvious Beta: Even Midway was upfront about the game being a testing ground for Mortal Kombat 4.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Because of its Narm Charm and Awesome Music, which are the good points of the game.
