* While relatively mundane in execution, Sub-Zero's "Chest Stomp" Fatality gains a new level of horror as it's one of the only Fatalities in the whole series where the victim audibly pleads for their life. To wit, Subbie [[LiterallyShatteredLives freezes, then shatters off]] his opponents legs, then stares menacingly down at his foe as they crawl backwards, the whole time begging him not to kill them as he [[UnflinchingWalk ominously advances.]] For most characters, it's a fairly humorously hammy chain of [[BigNo Big No's]], but Mileena sounds genuine enough to evoke images of a helpless woman cornered at the bottom of a dark alley, [[HorrifyingTheHorror even though it's, well... Mileena]].

Added DiffLines:

** His special moves are also very horrifying, as they involve him snapping parts of his body to attack.


* Mileena manages to finally replace Kitana and nobody is the least bit suspicious, just imagine what would have happened to Edenia if that had been allowed to continue. And her veil is see-through, which means you can see her Tarkatan maw ''at all times''! Makes you wonder how [[FailedASpotCheck no one ever noticed that upon close inspection]].

Not to mention, her voice sounds like the ragged distortion of someone trying to be sensual in their behavior you'd expect of her, moaning blissfully to mock her opponents for being distracted.

Added DiffLines:

** This of course becomes NightmareRetardant if he does this on any female character, especially the skimpy Mileena.
* Zombie Liu Kang's appearance in general isn't a pretty sight, with the FallenHero having several wounds across his body and a [[NightmareFace rotting face]]. Not to mention that his soul is still separated from his body, which is going on a rampage and killing countless innocent lives.

* Zombie Liu Kang's Possession fatality, later inherited by Shang Tsung. He becomes a light, enters your body, and forces you to rip off your own head, revealing his own head under it.

And her veil is see-through, which means you can see her Tarkatan maw ''at all times''! Makes you wonder how [[FailedASpotCheck no one ever noticed that upon close inspection]].
* Dark Raiden. The caring and compassionate thunder god of the past is gone and has been replaced by a merciless and cold-hearted {{jerkass}} who is quickly [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPTxwTHX8Fs growing tired of humanity]].
* Havik, to some extent. Take his 'Human Pencil Sharpener' fatality. It's bad enough to have a dude with a skull face eating your arms, but then to puke up your blood afterwards is just awful! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtzG1ijpI4E/ See for yourself.]]
