** The idea for this game (when it was still the tentative ''Mortal Kombat 8'') was originally to follow the events of ''Armageddon'', with [[KillEmAll most of the cast dying]] in [[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon the Battle of Armageddon]] in order to make way for a new cast. Scorpion and Sub-Zero would be survivors of the event. When it instead became a crossover with DC, these plot elements were modified and reworked into ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 MK9]]'', only that instead of the ninjas, it ended up becoming Raiden and Shao Kahn.
