* UnfortunateNames: The first name may be Boon backwards, but Internet forum goers would say otherwise. In some ''MK'' games, he was broken enough to fit the name, others just shortened the name. And then, Midway decided to play to the joke by giving Noob a [[DropTheHammer Troll Hammer]] in ''Armageddon''.

* UnfortunateNames: The first name may be Boon backwards, but is embarassing with what "noob" means to gamer culture and the Internet forum goers would say otherwise.in general, and for that matter "Saibot" is rather silly too. In some ''MK'' games, he was broken enough to fit the name, others just shortened the name. And then, Midway decided to play to the joke by giving Noob a [[DropTheHammer Troll Hammer]] in ''Armageddon''. In the reboot, characters in story mode conspicuously avoid using the name "Noob Saibot", instead referring to him as Bi-Han.


* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: It seemed unlikely, but she is a princess in a series of brutal and bloody fighting games, where she is just as violent as everyone else.


* BlackHoleBelly: When she does her "maneater" finisher she swallows her opponent whole, but it [[BalloonBelly doesn't ruin]] her shapely figure in the slightest.



* ButterFace: She's got Kitana's body... and the jawline of Baraka. 'Nuff said.

to:

* ButterFace: She's got Kitana's body... and the jawline of Baraka. 'Nuff said. It could explain her penchant for skimpy outfits, an attempt to draw attention away from her nightmarish chompers and towards her more conversationally attractive body.


* {{Jobber}}: Has a tendency to repeatedly show up during ''9''[='=]s story mode to get beaten up. It gets a lot worse for him in ''Mortal Kombat X'', where he gets DemotedToExtra as a character you must beat up to progress. [[spoiler:The fight with D'Vorah gets him killed.]] Geras is well aware of this tendency.

[[spoiler:The fight with D'Vorah gets him killed.]] Despite him getting more spotlight in ''11'', he ''still'' doesn’t fair a whole lot better in this regard. Geras is well aware of this tendency.

'''Present Kotal''': None of them were ''you''.


* {{Biseinen}}: By the franchise's standards at least, his long silvery hair makes him one.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Alongside Stryker, Sindel and Nightwolf, Smoke makes no appearance in the story of ''11'' despite still being a Revenant.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Alongside Stryker, Sindel and Nightwolf, Smoke makes no appearance in the story of ''11'' despite still being a Revenant. Dialogue between Nightwolf and Sub-Zero imply he was among the casualties of Raiden's war against the Netherrealm.

Added DiffLines:

* DistaffCounterpart: Her inclusion in the roster for ''II'' was to serve as one for Sub-Zero, with her dynamic with Mileena mirroring that of him and Scorpion.

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: ''Series/MortalKombatConquest'' inverts this; she's not related to Kitana at all in the story, instead being another servant of Shao Kahn disguised as Kitana via magic. While her overall personality is the same, it works against her, with such aggression causing her disguise to slip and reveal her true demonic face.


Added DiffLines:

While her overall personality is the same, it works against her, with such aggression causing her disguise to slip and reveal her true demonic face.


* FallenHero: Well "[[NominalHero hero]]" is a stretch. As an Earthrrealm dweller Bi-Han wasn't particularly "nice" or even "good", just a man "earning his living", by his words. Being turned into Noob Saibot made him a lot nastier than he already was.

* LivingLieDetector: While he has no such powers naturally, Noob is both jaded enough to see directly through Kronika's empty promises (in his Arcade ending, he notes that with her making so many of them, it would be difficult if not outright impossible to keep all of them) and abrasive enough to call several characters out on their mishaps- he called out Shao Kahn for trying to sell him the promise of conquest in exchange for servitude, states that he does not doubt Frost's hubris, as well as calling Kotal out for being an appeaser, and- when Kotal tries to spin it as trying to buy time to fight Shinnok on his terms- saying that he deceives no one but himself.



* NotBrainwashed: Kuai Liang initially thinks Quan Chi's magic corrupted Bi-Han. Thankfully, ''it hasn't''. As Noob Saibot gleefully rubs in, he is fully aware of what he has become - and sadly, ''he loves it''.
* NotSoStoic: The one time he seems to show any emotion is when Kuai Liang reminds him that he abandoned the title of Sub-Zero after his death. Bi-Han's response is ''seething'' with rage.

* VillainHasAPoint:
** He may be pure evil, but he ''was'' unjustly killed by Scorpion as he tells Raiden. And no, "losing trust" in him is not justice at all.
** When Frost states she will become the Lin Kuai grandmaster, Noob points out that his younger brother Kuai Liang would be a better fit to lead than a whiny brat like her.
** Shao Kahn makes him the offer to join him and conquer realms. Noob demands the now fugitive Shao Kahn to name ''one'' realm he controls, to which he obviously can't answer.

to:

* VillainHasAPoint:
VillainHasAPoint: Noob is, put simply, MadeOfEvil and has of late embraced it. However, in some of his pre-match intros, he's not that wrong with the points he makes.
** He may be pure evil, but he ''was'' unjustly killed by Scorpion as he tells Raiden. And no, "losing trust" in him is not justice at all.
** He was also killed before he could pass on the Sub-Zero mantle to next of kin. So no, he did not relinquish the name willingly even if, as Kuai said, "the name was Grandfather's first".
** When Frost states she will become the Lin Kuai grandmaster, Grandmaster, Noob points out that his younger brother Kuai Liang would be a better fit to lead than a whiny whiny, entitled brat like her.
** Shao Kahn makes him the offer to join him and conquer realms. Noob demands the now fugitive Shao Kahn (who is now a fugitive) to name ''one'' realm he controls, to which he obviously can't answer.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendVersusLover: The reveal of her relationship with Kotal Kahn creates this dilemma for Jade in ''11''. She tells Kitana in one intro that she wishes to support them both and faces this struggles again in her Tower ending, where she must decide between creating a timeline with Kitana or Kotal in it.
