** Also from [[BadBoss Shao Kahn]] of all people, when in one interaction Kano tells him he is holding Kollector for ransom, Shao Kahn tells him to return his minion or face death. ''Shao Kahn''. It's possible that he just doesn't want to show weakness by paying the ransom instead of taking him back by force, but the fact that he values Kollector enough to fight for him rather than just write him off is still rather nice of him.
* When Sub-Zero restores the cyberized Cyrax's free will, he is frightened at the machine he had become. Before taking the Cyber Lin Kuei network offline, Cyrax beseeches Sub-Zero to find a way to restore his humanity. Sub-Zero, [[ASharedSuffering knowing all to well what it's like to have his humanity stolen from him]], assures Cyrax that it doesn't matter if he is man or machine: he is still a proud warrior, and the Lin Kuei will always welcome him.

* Noob Saibot, of all characters, gets a small one in his battle intro with Frost, [[EvenEvilHasStandards as he finds her being the Grandmaster of the Lin Kuei a horrible prospect]] and states that Kuai Liang, despite he and Noob bearing a CainAndAbel dynamic between them, is better in all accounts. Repeat: ''Frost is so bad, Noob Saibot defends Sub-Zero despite all the bad blood.'' Perhaps the original Sub-Zero isn't all gone just yet...

* Kotal Kahn's reaction to seeing Jade after the TimeCrash begins is perhaps the single most humanizing moment for him as a character. When past!Kombatants arrive Kotal begins to realize that if Baraka, Skarlet and Kitana are alive among them that Jade must be too, something she cuts him off on before he can say it himself. The quiet joy in his voice as he addresses her again is echoed by her gentle smile towards him, and once they get a moment of quiet and solitude during the ensuing battle they waste no time in sharing a kiss as both were each-other's LostLenore in their respective timelines.

* Past!Liu Kang's faith in Raiden. Even when told of his terrible future and Raiden's part in it, Liu Kang ''still'' chooses to believe in Raiden because that's just how much he trusts him. The only thing that makes this faith waver is when Raiden is being actively corrupted by Shinnok's amulet and seemingly proves the Revenants' claims to be true, and even ''then'' it comes right back when Raiden comes back to his senses.

** Shao Kahn isn't the only one: ''Shang Tsung'' also gets a heartwarming moment in that he genuinely considered his champions friends, including Goro - who he outright says in a somber tone that he misses him the most. Even the worst of Outworld can show affection to one another after all.

Added DiffLines:

* Sub-Zero's tower ending has him intending to use Kronika's hourglass to restore the Lin Kuei, but realizes before he can redeem the Lin Kuei he will have to redeem Bi-Han first. While his corruption goes back even further than being resurrected as Noob Saibot (As far as being tempted to corruption by Sektor), after a few tries he finally sets him on the right path as both Sub-Zeroes become co-Grandmasters of the Lin Kuei. Even after disowning his brother, Kuai Liang still wishes to have him by his side.
