* PurpleEyes: In some of his variants in ''MKX''.


* FauxAffablyEvil: He's generally calm even when invading other realms, but [[BerserkButton when pissed off]] or is in VillainousBreakdown mode, he ''really'' gets nasty.

* WickedCultured: In contrast to all the other kharacters, Shinnok seems to be something of a movie buff if his recognition of the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]], Franchise/{{Predator}}, [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]], and [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]] are any indication in ''MKX''.
